The Phantom Menace

Took the boys to see The Phantom Menace today.  Their first time, my second.  My initial reaction is that it is better on the big screen than it is on DVD.  It seemed long.  I dislike midichlorians.  Darth Maul is a badass and the lightsaber duel was both their and my favorite part.  I'm sure I'll have more thoughts later.

Edit:  Oh, and I don't think the 3D added much.

  1. All these years later, I still don't wish to see it again. I remember my brother and I walking out of the theater both with the same...WTF was that? feeling of remorse and disappointment. Empire was our favorite, then Star Wars, and last was Jedi because of the damn teddy bears. Phantom Menace went even further down the teddy bear path and not even Darth Maul could man this film back up to a respectable level of cool. I still think of Star Wars as trilogy...with a bad ending.
