10 Things From the ‘Star Wars’ Prequel Trilogy that Were Actually Good



“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is just around the corner now, and it seems like one of the reasons everyone is so excited for it is that it feels like a return to the proper form of the original trilogy, and a rejection of the much-maligned prequels.

But while it’s easy to find faults with the prequel trilogy (because let’s face it, there are tons), or dismiss the movies outright, it’s not like they weren’t without their diamonds in the rough.
