Dooku's lightsaber has two different sound effects when he turns it on. The first time, when he is about to duel Obi-Wan, the sound is similar to Luke Skywalker's lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). The second time Dooku turns his lightsaber on, when he is about to fight Yoda, the sound is the same as Darth Vader's from the original trilogy (as well as Darth Maul's from Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)).

This episode of the Star wars saga was criticized by some when it came out for having wooden dialogue and too much digital landscaping to be any good. I wasn't overly impressed with it myself, but having seen all 6 films now, AOTC is actually a very important and well done section of the overall series.
Lucas has said time and again that this movies are meant to be seen as one long film, not to be taken as 6 individual movies. This particular installment features so much that affects every other episode. The discovery of the clones, the immaturity and arrogance of Annakin, the beginning of the clone wars. All of these events happen in this one movie, which is actually a lot more than what happens in some of the other films. I don't consider this to be the best of all 6 by any means, but it is certainly not nearly as bad as some people make it out to be.
