Am I the only one who thinks that many of the script/convo's in Ep2 were exceptionally poor? I mean, the line from Anakin about not liking sand, but liking Padme was trash. It wasn't cute Star Wars cheesy. Just downright bad. And some absolutely appalling acting too. How could Lucas not have looked back and thought "shit, that's bad. gotta shoot that again."?! And of course, we now know that the way to Natalie Portman's heart is to kill a tribe. And the women. And the children. Delightful! Better than Ep1 (which I actually didn't mind - at least they build up to the Maul battle in that one nicely), but nothing to rave about with so many unforgivable and cringeworthy moments.
