100% agree. Phantom except for Jar Jar was great. The other two looked too digital to me.
AOTC is the weakest of the bunch.
Im not even sure of there needed to be 3 movies (except for monetary reasons) Theres a ton of filler in there.
I think Lucas got sort of boxed in creatively making prequels. Obscure characters and references have to match up exactly right or fanboys will go nuts.
