Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith comes the closest to capturing the original trilogy’s magic as any of the prequel films possibly could. Unlike the original trilogy, Revenge of the Sith is the darkest of the first three films.

Anakin’s path towards becoming Darth Vader started in the previous film but let’s…"Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith"
Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack of the Clones has the hard part of setting up much of the next film in the trilogy but was terrible in execution. This film had a few things to do.

The second is coming up with the origins of the Clone Wars, where Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) fought alongside Skywalker. At some…"Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack of the Clones"
