What do you like about the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy?

I'm sure there will be posts saying the end credits, but I know there are people out there who like the PT or at least parts of it.

Here are some of mine

The political aspects of TPM
Darth Maul
Senator Palpatine's voice
Battle Droids quotes
Coruscant
Jango Fett
Music from planet Kamino
Coruscant night club Jedi hunt for Zam Wessel in
Count Dooku's royal personality
Plo Koon!
Dark tone of ROTS
General Grievous and his IG Magnaguards
Yoda taking out the Royal Guards and fighting the Emperor
Links to ANH in ROTS
Qui-Gon Jinn
Anakin taking out the younglings and the Separatist leaders
Duel of the Fates

What are yours?

Pretty much everything except Jar Jar, some of the acting and the dialogue.

If Lucas had written the story and let someone else direct it and write the script they would have been fine.

Re: What do you like about the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy?

Pretty much everything. There really isn't much that I dislike about the Prequels ( or ANY of the SW films, for that matter), but if I had to get specific, here's some of my favorite things:
* The political aspects of the storyline
* The fact that we get to actually see the Jedi in action during their prime
* The references to the latter (or former, depending on your POV) films
* Obi-Wan and Anakin's relationship being both similar and different to what is implied by Obi-Wan in the latter/former films

I like the fact that there weren't any more than three of them.

The cast, on paper, is good if not fantastic. John William's score is excellent in all three films, but especially the first and third. And I love that Ian McDiarmid was brought back, sans make-up, to play the "younger" Palpatine.

The special effects and the music.

Cast (mostly), costumes, sets, models, effects, props, production design, hair, make-up, etc. were all top notch. It's other elements that weren't so hot.

I don't mind Jar-Jar, it's Anakin I have a problem with. Especially that scene about sand.

Hands down, Ian McDiarmid's Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Hell, the trilogy could have been just him sneering and barking orders to underlings via hologram and I would STILL love the prequels.

Re: What do you like about the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy?

The music was fantastic.

EDIT: now that I think about it, I also like the music from Pearl Harbor, King Arthur, Van Helsing, and "Star Trek: Enterprise". I'm sensing a theme here...

The Nubian ship designs. N1, Royal Yacht, etc.

Badass.

In fact, the design work was pretty cool across the board, maybe a bit more of a cleaner look than I would have liked, but hey, it's just a movie.

The end credits of Star Wars Episode III. The internal knowledge that there would be no more Star Wars films filled me with joy.

Then the clone wars came.
