This is quite bizare, I watched TPM last night too! I guess it was because of this post, or could their be another more sinister reason behind it all? Anyway thank god for DVD so I can watch my own little Phantom edit of the movie which consists of:The opening titles - The pod race and The end battle. Heh, the movie then changes from being the worst Star Wars movie ever to the best 30 min Star Wars movie ever. Thats why I think AOTC could well kick some ass, because their wasn't really anything wrong with the action scenes in TPM as such (apart from Jar Jar and Young Anakin, who slightly balls up the end battle) And Lucas has probably learned a few lessons from TPM in regard to the pacing of the movie, God the Tatooine and Coruscant scenes go on and on and on.... Anyway I'm glad to hear that the Novel's good, hopefully it will translate onto the big screen even better.Shane.
