Actually if you adjust for inflation. The OT still beats the Prequels.
Yeah but the prequels still beat almost any movie ever made at the box office. Regardless if people on the internet were annoyed that Jar Jar wasn't funny.
The Prequels were not the first movies on anybody's favorites list. For example, in 2002, Attack of the Clones
--with a built in franchise--still fell short of Spider-Man's
performance. One can argue that Spider-Man
was new, but the negative opinion of The Phantom Menace
up to recieve less than enthusiastic attention compared to Raimi's comic adaptation.
