It was my intent with this site not to dwell too much on bashers and prequel-haters, but every now and then, I have to respond to some of the crudola we’re up against.
Some hack on Mess-NBC wrote a piece on “Lackluster Blockbusters” and of course Target #1 was the PT. Not only that, he starts to think the OT sucked too. He blames Lucas for “ruining everything” with “lazy, cynical” writing and caring more about special effects than anything else.
Granted this moron also beat up on the Spider Man flicks, E.T., Titanic, and Home Alone among other hits, but it goes to show you the problem too many in fandom choose to either ignore or start parroting. I’ve been very critical of how Lucasfilm doesn’t seem to notice or care about how this constant drumbeat of “the PT sucks” hurts its interests. Three years after ROTS, the black hats are still at it. Our work is cut out for us.
