First one dreadful - the kid was annoying and it looked like a video game.
Second one even worse - Hayden Christensen was terrible, zero chemistry between him and Nathalie Portman, and the story...
Third, better but still only 'OK'.
I also preferred not knowing exactly why Anakin became Vader (and the reason the films showed was very weak), and liked the mystical explanation of the force.
Also I'm sure I read (many years ago) that Luca$ said he wanted to wait before doing any other Star Wars films until special effects developed enough to make the films look good. But, ironically, to my eyes the spaceships, in particular, look far more convincing in the original trilogy. I assume this is because they exist as actual objects (albeit models of course) rather than computer rendered.
Anykin weak-minded dolt , I felt no sympathy for him at all.
