I am a Phantom Menace apologist. It's not one of the best of the bunch, but apart from Jake Lloyd, I feel like the film gets unduly shat upon.

You may be the only person I know who has watched them.

How is Menace the best (or least terrible) prequel ?

Jake Loyd is more than enough reason for endless defecation. Portman is also nowhere near her Léon levels and don't think I am above mentioning Jar Jar because I am not. I rewatched Phantom a couple of years ago for the first time in about a decade and I was appalled.

Portman was at least trying in Phantom Menace. By Sith she had clearly given up and was just opening her mouth wide enough to let the terrible dialogue fall out.

That was by design, as a tribute to Carrie Fisher.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I disagree. Have you watched Phantom Menace recently ? Any time she's the queen she's doing this weird monotone accent that's beyond dreadful...I think she was consistently mediocre as Padme in all three movies (and in the Thor movies too).

Carrie Fisher is fine in Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back. Completely checked out in Jedi though.

Phantom Menace isn't trying to put the horrid dialogue at the forefront, which makes it miles better than Attack of the Clones.
Angsty Hayden Christensen is much worse than Jar Jar and Lloyd.

I hate Jar Jar. It's course and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.
