I know you all will kill me for this, but...

You know what I think was the worst part of Episode I? Not Jar Jar; I liked Jar Jar. Some of him was stupid, but he wasn't that bad. Not Anakin; at first little Jake's acting seemed annoying and fake, but after watching a few tapes of myself at that age, I'd say he did pretty well. Some things were bad ("yipee") but overall, it was OK.

The worst thing about Episode I was...Natalie Portman. Her lines were delivered poorly, she seemed totally out of place all the time, and she was unconvincing overall. I don't even think it was a good casting decision. Carrie Fisher made a fabulous Princess Leia. She was tough, yet she could play the damsel in distress. She had the right look - not mind-numbingly beautiful, but pretty and regal. She had good chemistry with the other actors. Natalie Portman had none of these things in Episode I. She isn't even attractive in ANY way, much less the way that was important to the movie.

So, there's my opinion - flame away.

It just came to me the last time I was watching the movie - nearly every time I cringed was when Natalie was talking.

I don't think she was any worse than anyone else on screen.
Overall there was just a lack of chemistry between all the leads (I think that was really the secret to the first 3 movies) Everybody just seemed a little stiff and emotionally distant from each other.
I hope Ep2, which is partly a love story, and partly a story of a fall towards the dark side, is better in this regard.

Dude, are you a fruitcase or something? Thats like saying "You know what I hate the most about pornos? The part when they get all naked and stuff; it's just so un-necessary for the story" FRUIT
