I was curious what your favorite part of the overall "prequel era" of entertainment we've seen so far?  Did you like one of the movies the best, the prequel trilogy as a whole, or was the animated Clone Wars series something that seemed the best to you?  I really like all of it, and enjoy Revenge of the Sith the most of the movies, but something about the Clone Wars cartoon just seemed really cool to me.  I know many people mentioned that they seemed to get the relationships of Anakin/Padme and Anakin/Obi-Wan to almost come across better than they were portrayed in the movies, even with what little time they had to do that sort of things in the toon.  I kind of agree with portions of that, and I thought that the animated series was done well overall.  Not to discount the movies though, they all had high points, with ROTS being my favorite personally.  What did you like the best from the prequel offerings?

Simply put, the final battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin was my favourite part of the prequels.  It was the best combination of action and emotion that really got the adrenaline flowing.  I've been waiting to see that battle for years and it did not disappoint.

The best line: "You were the chosen one!"  The pain in Obi-Wan's voice was very powerful.

As a whole, I liked the CW cartoon the most. :P However, I have two favorite moments in the prequels. The duel between Maul, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan is the best every photographed. There was so much going for that fight that all that follow paled in comparison. The other was Ian McDiarmid's performance in ROTS. Some think it was over the top, but I think it worked and was very classic SW. A bright spot in an otherwise forgettable movie.

I still love Jar-Jar performance at the battle of Naboo. And I love Jar-Jar altogether. I mean, come on, how could you hate him? Seriously?

I like the Arena battle in AOTC, that one was cool.

Hmmm... Clone Wars cartoon... Lets see, I enjoyed Episodes 20 and 23. Those two were my favorites.

In ROTS, the space battle was cool, but it seems to get shorter and shorter each time I watch it. I guess the best part of ROTS is either the duel, seeing all those Wookiees, watching Yoda knock down the guards, Order 66, or the Battle of Utapau.

The best thing about the prequels was the Lightsaber duels.
To see Jedi and Sith in their prime was excellent.

Agreed, the Episode I lightsaber duel was by far the best.

Thinking of all the other duels they are tended to have extreme close ups (where you couldn't see the action), the setting as dark, the camera moves around and the action is whipping around such that you can't discern the moves.

The Maul fight is perfect, I wish that the same method was used in the rest of the PT.

ROTS has to be it for me,Greivous & Cody are great characters. ;D
AOTC has to be my least favorite of the whole saga,it got boring until Geonosis.

I'd say the best sequence was the Maul fight. The best overall was the clone wars cartoon followed closely by ROTS.

The fight between obi-wan and Anakin is my favorite. I was happy to see Windu fall, he was a jerk.

The cartoon.  It has the most imagination and sheer joy of any of the prequels, and it had more character, depth, and just fun in a couple minutes than the first two films had put together.

I love the films and the toons. I love the Clone Wars better than the PT, It should have been Episode 2. my order on the films (PT).

1. ROTS- my favorite of the PT. Palpatine kicking &%#!, the dramtic Fall of the Jedi Sequence is one of my favorite out of all six films. Obi-Vader at the end. Awesome

2. AOTC-Jedi kicking *!@# at the Arena, but too much love scenes and not alot of obi-wan. great film

3. TPM- fun film, but flaws. 1) Anakin has a child -he should have been older.  2) Jar Jar- worst character ever. the duel is the best of the SW Saga.

My order of all SW movies (no explain)

1. ESB
2. SW
3. ROTS
4. ROTJ
5. AOTC
6. TPM

I actually think the best part of the Star Wars prequels was Revenge of the Sith because it was really action-packed, it had a lot of lightsaber action, and it also explains almost everything for what will happen in A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and especially Return of the Jedi (Note: Revenge of the Sith is very close in comparison to Return of the Jedi).
