Have to disagree here. A lot of people don't like the prequels and its been that way for a long time. Even a lot of hardcore Star Wars fans are down on them. I don't think its just a internet tread thing.So Lucas wasn't a talentless hack who didn't know what he was doing after all. Who would've guessed? 😆
I never really got the hate for the prequels personally. It's like one of those Internet trends; fun to jump on the bandwagon, but less so when you become sober and realize how ludicrous it is.
