    I actually thought Jake Lloyd was okay. And I really like TPM (all 6 Star Wars movies make my Top 10 Favorites list). I agree, if Jar Jar wasn't in it it would be a better movie.

    Having a Gungan befriend Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan is important, so later Amidala can ask him for help to fight the Federation. All Lucas needed to do was make that Gungan a decent character. Instead, he creates one of the most annoying characters of all time.

    Yes, Darth Maul is awesome. I was 9 when TPM came out, and I didn't even like Star Wars back then, and I still thought Darth Maul was the coolest villain ever.

And Darth Maul was in it for what, a minute? Definitely not enough to make me feel like he was a real bad a$$. But to each his own.

    Oops .. didn't mean to have Showgirls quoted.

    I guess seeing Elizabeth Berkley a few times must have sunk in subconsciously...

    As a person who has seen all 6 Star Wars movies MULTIPLE times, I really don't understand the hate for the prequels. Sure, compared to the original trilogy they aren't as good (and that is why everyone hates them), but they really aren't as bad as everyone makes them out to be.

    I've been watching TPM alot for some reason recently, and I've grown to really like it. The only thing horrible about it is Jar Jar Binks. Everyone's acting is decent (and if you're expecting Oscar worthy acting in Star Wars you're watching the wrong movie), it has a BAMF villain in Darth Maul, and there's a decent amount of action in it.

    Is it the greatest movie ever? No. But it doesn't deserve to be on the list of "Worst Movies Ever".

    Yep, I when I was in college in Georgia, gas was under a dollar. This was 1995 (?) or thereabouts. Im not THAT old. Just a product of a depressed economy. Us po' southern folk.

    '69 Camaros are ok with my, but they are too angular. They dont have any curves to them. Too square.

    I remember my Dad having a Willys panel truck, but I dont remember the year. It was tough though. He would beat it to death and it kept on running.

    a 500 hp car is no laughing matter... and in a convertable to boot? The '67 is a pretty car, but I'm not a huge fan of the squareness of that and the '68. The '69 has always been leaner and sleeker... sexier... looking to me. But you mentioning you Ford truck? I'll admit... I love "Effies". Maybe it's just old trucks in general? Growing up we had a '57 Willy's truck in the sideyard that my dad swore was mine. I was PISSED when he sold it to his brother for pennies! Body was clean and straight, but that was all it was; a body and solid frame. Anywho... now that we've jacked this thread.....

    Had a 55 Ford truck too. And a 79 Camaro. A 75 (? cant remember now) 240Z.

Most Chevy trucks I like, would prefer a '54(even though they built it late into '55) or a "big window".... *sigh*..... I miss my '69 RS/SS though. Azure blue with the white stripes, black deluze cloth with a 350, 700r4 mated to it rolling on 15's on the front and 16's in the back and the headlight covers worked flawlessly(which you don't see too often)...... *sigh*....... sold it for $22,500 about 4 years ago.
