I’ll never be the same after this…

February 26, 2012

For Christmas I got the Complete Star War Saga on Blu-Ray; and last night, Michele and I decided to sit down and begin a sort of marathon in which we would watch all 6 movies in numerical order. I’d been putting this off, because while I had been a defender of the prequel trilogy to a certain extent I was worried that I would find them even more terrible now than I had when I first saw them.

My fear has been confirmed. As  lover of all things Star Wars it truly pains me to say this, but Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. The writing is frighteningly bad, and the whole thing goes to show why no one person should have complete control over every aspect of a film.

There’s a longer post in me about this somewhere, and once I get through all of the movies I’ll probably get it out. But right now, the pain is still too near. I can’t bear to think about it any further today…

    Write the post Michael, strike down The Phantom Menace with all of your hatred, and your journey to the right side will be complete.
