Joel's 100 Films in 2015: Attack of the Clones

39. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Watched 10/12/15

Remember when this was gonna be the Star Wars movies that got it all back on track? I do. This was literally a new hope. 

And then it came out. And we watched it and we were so sad. Those were the dark times.

There are good parts here: Grievous is interesting, the trio of monsters battling our heroes in the arena is derivative but exciting.

But there is also a forced terrible romance and the worst special effects in the entire saga. Too much CGI and too little oversight ruined this one.
