Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005) – George Lucas

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles brings me to the final entry in the Prequel Trilogy, and arguably the strongest despite some troubling moments. While still suffering from the too clean, too digital, green-screen EVERYTHING, this one feels the closest to a Star Wars movie, and that opening sequence through the space battle over Coruscant is highly…

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (2002) – George Lucas
