So... I've seen 15 20 in the theaters (and of course I saw Star Wars more than once), 18 23 total, and I've been unimpressed by 7 of'em.

And to answer the inevitable comments of "Lucas really suckered you if you saw all three prequels when none of them impressed you":
  1. I'm married.
  2. To be fair, when we got all six movies in the Star Wars saga and watched them in a row, 1-6, I really enjoyed them as a whole.


Edited for bad maths.
