    I just wanted to share a memory of this. This movie was released during my senior year of high school. I’ve seen this movie 3 times in the theaters. I was in line for the midnight premier and there was so much hype for the movie. I remember being awed but the effects, music, and I believed it’s the first time seeing Liam’s acting in this movie. Took my prom date to this movie because she wanted to see it. I feel asleep cause it was the third time I saw it in theaters. I was tired and it was late lol. That being said, I still hate Jar Jar and to this day don’t care for this movie anymore. It was a sh*t story that’s made of gold with shiney jewels on it. I did have a huge crush on Natalie Portman though. Remember the teaser poster with young anakin with a vader shadow?
