The buzz about Star Wars: Episode 2, The Attack of the Clones is gradually building. I only wish that professional critics and fans alike didn’t feel compelled to use this as an opportunity to bash Phantom Menace by saying that they hope Attack of the Clones is better. I have never understood why Phantom Menace is the target of so much derision; I was and still am delighted with it. I have had difficulty articulating what I think is so wonderful about it, however. Now I find that I don’t have to, because I can simply point people to this article by Dr. Kelley Ross.
