George Lucas: The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones are "VERY HARD TO FOLLOW." Compared to the cookie cutter, no-brain action films Hollywood pumps out on a weekly basis, YES they are incredibly hard to follow. Consider how stupid the average movie goer is, the short attention span (if something doesn't blow up every 15 seconds they fall asleep) and it's really not suprising. If you're smarter than that average then rejoice, but don't pretend everyone is keeping up with you. If they were then a movie like Alien VS Predator would never have been made.
