Last week, I wrote about 5 things I love about The Phantom Menace. This week, I'd like to continue the series with 5 things I love (still in no particular order) about Attack of the Clones!
Naboo is just such a beautiful planet, and I love to see it every time. We spend a lot of time there in this movie, but unlike in The Phantom Menace the planet is not at war so we have more time to peacefully admire the beautiful architecture of the city and the natural landscapes that it has to offer. It's just so mesmerizing!
2. Anakin and Padmé's Romance
And of course, much of what happens on Naboo here surrounds Anakin and Padmé and the beginning of their tragic relationship. While it can be a little clunky at times (Anakin is definitely no expert at flirting), they have a lot of sweet scenes together, like their picnic in the meadow when they play with the shaaks.
3. Obi-Wan Being a Space Detective
I also really, really love the other plot of this movie, where we follow Obi-Wan investigating the mysterious clone army. From the chase he does with Anakin through Coruscant, to paying a visit to Dexter, and finally poking around on Kamino and Geonosis. It's really fun to watch, especially because we get plenty of Obi-Wan's trademark sass.
4. Jango Fett
I don't think it's even possible to talk about Attack of the Clones without mentioning how awesome Jango Fett is. He's the blueprint for the clones of course, and also just has some really cool (though one fatal) fight scenes across the movie. Plus, seeing him with little Boba is just so cute!
5. Battle of Geonosis
Finally I absolutely ADORE the climax of this movie. From the epic arena battle, to the first battle the clones get to fight, to the duel between Obi-Wan, Anakin and Dooku- and then the even cooler duel between Yoda and Dooku. I love everything about the Battle of Geonosis, and could watch it forever.
What do you love about Attack of the Clones?
