First, TPM had great editing, the 2 CD edition had the music exactly like it was cut in the movie, that's why it was cut in so many pieces, it was exactly a isolated score for the movie and it wasn't that bad, I listen to the last 30 minutes of the second CD a lot because it has an action music which doesn't stop at all and it's really good, still the first edition was filled with great suites, it is a really nice CD to listen any time.

And the fact is, I never go and look for flaws in movies but I can't help it, I really can't, once I see any flaw and then another one and so on, I can't enjoy that movie anymore, that happens because I expect too much from a movie like Star Wars and I really like Phantom Menace, it had so few flaws as a movie, it was a really really good action movie and had really nice scenes and as filmmaking I think it was quite successful. And here is my taste of movies

E.T. and Contact the best movies ever made
A.I. 9 out of 10
Jurassic Park 9 out of 10
T2 9 out of 10
Aliens 9 out of 10
Matrix 8 out of 10
Any Robert Zemeckis film like Cast Away or What Lies Beneath are incredible work of directing and editing, any Spielberg film like Amistad or Shindler's List is filled with humanity and they both are really successful as filmmaking and there are some scenes only Spielberg can shoot that way, any James Cameron movie is 8 out 10 definitely, Titanic was a nice journey, 9 out 10.

So, I also don't consider Star Wars as oscar movie but lots of those movie above are also not oscar movies but don't have so much flaws, especially, in Contact there is only a 2 second interval I don't like, 2 seconds in 2.5 hours, that's flawless in some sense.
