Anakin Skywalker, a young slave strong with the Force, is discovered on Tatooine. Meanwhile, the evil Sith have returned, enacting their plot for revenge against the Jedi.
I will try and explain why I dislike this film so much. It is a bit of a geeky rant, so bear with me.
A Universe of Boredom
The original trilogy gave us a window to one of the most interesting universes ever created. It is a fantasy, filled with amazing aliens and wonderful characters. The Phantom Menace was the film that could expand on this universe. We could have gotten more fantastical worlds, more foundation to the mythos. What we instead got was Tatooine......again. It could have traveled the entire universe but it instead gave us a planet we already know. This is but a tiny example of the unbelievable unimaginative feel this film has. This is most present…

I think I've reached the tipping point of my love for this thing, but then again, each rewatch is practically exponential in how it affects me as a Star Wars fan and a cinephile. Each frame of world building - cascading waterfalls, forests festering with fog, dusty Tatooine landscapes - is rich and lively in its conceptual work, with costuming, CG effects, and sound design providing a textual beginning to the saga. Lucas paints this picture as delicate and grandiose; a far cry from the uncertainty of Attack of the Clones and the devastating tragedy of Revenge of the Sith. All the puzzle pieces - galactic politics, bureaucratic interplay, Jedi as spies and samurai,…
An indiscriminatingly awful, vomit-inducing, excessively cartoonish, unbelievably stupid & mind-numbingly pathetic piece of shit that deserves to be ranked amongst the worst atrocities ever committed on film canvas, the first chapter of George Lucas' prequel trilogy & fourth instalment in the Star Wars saga marks its creator's return to film direction after a 22-year hiatus and shows that world cinema was far better off without his directional inputs.
Set three decades before the events of Star Wars in a galaxy far far away, the story of The Phantom Menace follows two Jedi Knights who are sent to negotiate a peaceful end to an interplanetary trade dispute but when that falls apart, they flee from their hostile situation to warn the Queen and…

Pretty drastic jump in quality on this rewatch, a one-two combo of Lucas's formalism hitting me like a ton of bricks and his ability of weaving dedicated Star Wars influences and filmic nods towards his personal mythological tapestry overwhelming my eyes and ears (shoutout to the 'Ring Theory'). I can't defend the dialogue or the performances, and Jar-Jar is utterly atrocious in spite of his well-meaning basis of being a sci-fi Buster Keaton sidekick, but Lucas creates an entirely different time and place in The Phantom Menace, starting a musical symphony sixteen years after the climax has already been cherished and the end has been mourned. If anything is certain, Lucas adores image-making like…

After not being a fan of this film for years, i decided to give it another chance. To my surprise i actually though this movie was decent in its own way, not as a star wars film however. John Williams score is perfect and its a good start to a not so good trilogy. Jake Lloyd can get annoying sometimes and some scenes are just laughable.
I got the pleasure of introducing a new soul into the realm of Star Wars. I found myself smiling more than I usually do during the course of this movie. The reason I took half a star off is because of the useless character Jar Jar and his useless lines. But, this movie presents one of the best lightsaber battles in the Star Wars series which starts of the prequel trilogy with a bang. For anyone who thinks the prequels are shit, you're ass full of shit. Eat my ass kids.

When I was a kid, I used to make crude 5-10 minute films with my siblings. I would pick up the camera and visualize a scene. Then, I would tell my siblings where to stand and what to do... then I would think of dialogue on the spot based loosely upon the tropes I had seen in action movies up to that point combined with what little context my imagination provided for any kind of plot.
I understand Lucas' plight, in a sense. His imagination ran wild, but he didn't have the writing chops (by his own admission) to keep up with his ideas.
I am also a firm believer that having a few live action characters destroy CG robots for the entire trilogy was a bad move.

There are plenty of joys in my life. I love music: The Beatles, Sinatra, Armstrong, Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed. I love women. I love a Federer-Nadal wimbledon final. And I love movies.
Sometimes some of those things make me smile and laugh. Not necessarily because those songs, persons, friendships, entertainments and other forms of time spending, are humorous or funny.
I laugh because some of those things are written and produced by people who wants well. And not only well -- they are giving the Everything.
The Phantom Menace made me laugh and smile tonight. It really looked beautiful on my laptop. It is a work…
