Star Wars Challenge Day 9

Yesterday we had favorite Original Trilogy movie, and now it's time for favorite Prequel!

My favorite is The Phantom -

No wait.  Revenge of -

Um...Revenge of the Menace?

How about this - the first half of Revenge of the Sith, and the parts in The Phantom Menace that have Qui-Gon and/or Obi-Wan in them.

I can't decide.

The Phantom Menace is awesome because it has Qui-Gon.  Revenge of the Sith is awesome because it has older Anakin.  For me, choosing between the movies is choosing between the characters.  And that's hard.

The Phantom Menace introduces most of the important characters in the prequel films and creates the foundations needed for later developments, such as the source of Anakin's attachment issues and Palpatine's rise to power.  And Qui-Gon's in it.  And it's his only movie.  So even though I'm not too into the podracing or Gungan battle, I really like the movie.  The Jedi Council scenes are some of my favorites, as well as Qui-Gon's moments with Anakin and Obi-Wan.

What's great about Revenge of the Sith is most of the prequel characters have already been introduced and developed in The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, so film could move through the story and bring the trilogy to it's conclusion.  Now that Obi-Wan has completed Anakin's training, he's a lot more relaxed than in AotC and he and Anakin have some fun interactions.  And yes, the end of the movie is incredibly sad and depressing, but I did say I liked the first part, right?

Oh yes, and Padme has beautiful outfits in both movies.  Don't make me decide between them either.

To end this indecisive post, here is a video: the audio of the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End trailer put to clips from Revenge of the Sith - epicness.

May the Lord be with you!


  1. LOL!! I prefer ROTS over any prequel movie. It's so intense and the plot was more engaging. I find myself falling asleep sometimes when I watch TPM....except for that end duel- it was epic.

  2. Love those two films! Definitively my two of my favorite films! Though I do like Revenge of the Sith a bit better, just because of its great scope and emotion (but The Phantom Menace is a close second) :)

  3. +everything on loving the parts with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. Honestly, anything Obi-Wan is in is automatically awesome so...yeah.

  4. LOL, It's ok, I is also hard for me to decide a favorite. I love both movies! :)
