Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace

So as most of you know the new Star Wars movie is coming out, and I am so excited! Me and my dad are both HUGE fans of Star Wars (I saw Episode 4 when I was 5). So to lead up to it we are watching all of the Star Wars movies; from Episode 1 to the very last one ever made. 

 

So, Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, arguably one of George Lucas’ worst movie ever made. There was just too much comedy shoved into the movie that was uncalled for. I understand that Jar Jar Binks was supposed to be funny and bring some light into the movie, but the other jokes were not necessary.

 

I am not the only one who thinks this before you start judging me, or whatever. Rotten Tomatoes rated it 57%; not the best score you could hope for. The biggest problem it had (according to Rotten Tomatoes) was “Lucas needs to improve on the plot and character development.” I completely agree with this, it was quite boring at parts. Almost the entire movie was people standing and talking, which you had to sit through just for 10 minutes of AMAZING lightsaber action.

 

Please don’t yell at me for bashing on this movie, but these are my true opinions! Let me know if you guys are excited for the new Star Wars movie!
