Agree to disagree, man. I feel it had absolutely nothing to do with hype. They were reviled because they were terrible movies. Jar-Jar and midichlorians are only surface issues. They're prime examples of poor direction and poor writing. Even talented actors can't do much when they have a bad script and a director who has no idea what he's doing. They had good soundtracks?Owyn_Merrilin said:Except it really wasn't. Granted, Natalie Portman was working from the Kristen Stewart school of acting, but otherwise TPM was spot on. And midichlorians? I have never understood why people got so pissed off about that. The force has never been purely mystical, there's always been a biological component. Why else do you think it's passed down through bloodlines?invadergir said:People hated it because it was a bad story, poorly acted, and every scene was shot/reverse-shot while sitting down. Also, midichlorians.
Edit: Not to mention, why do you think only certain people can use it? If it were completely and totally mystical, you'd think anyone with the proper training could learn to touch it.
