People give the prequel trilogy a lot of crap, but outside of JarJar Binks, a few minor plotholes here & there and some poor writing on Lucas' part its still very enjoyable for what it is. It goes without saying tho, Ewan McGregor is the highlight of these movies and I would love to see him in the role again eother in an Obi Wan solo film or as a Force Spirit in Episode 8 or 9.

The Phantom Menace

I've always felt quite ambivalent about the scorn poured on this film in the past. I saw it at the cinema, I watched it on DVD, and although it never blew me away, I didn't hate it quite as much as many people seemed to.

Finally, after many years, I got to watch the bluray in all it's 1080p splendour. Let me start with the good, and there are really two good things about this movie: the pod race remains a great piece of action cinema; exciting, inventive, and very very loud. The second good thing about this movie is the audio experience; the sound design is superb, and it remains a decent disc to demo any home cinema system.

Sadly, the movie itself is pretty dire. On reflection I've been too forgiving in the past, and this time the appalling script, the terrible acting and - in the case of Anakin - god awful casting, made this a real chore to sit through.

The big problem here is that nobody had the balls to tell George Lucas that he was making a bad film. I mean, there are GOOD actors in this, but nothing can save the stilted dialogue, the complete lack of physical engagement (this being the best example of how CGI can destroy a movie rather than enhance it), and the frankly poor story. And it's a telling sign when the characters have to tell the viewers that Anakin is special, rather than the story being able to show us.

To be honest much derision was aimed in the direction of Jar Jar Binks, and while he was a misfire, it's a small one in a whole string of misfires!

In terms of the bluray, I've already mentioned how stellar the audio is, but the video is - surprisingly - a mixed bag.

I recently watched the original trilogy and remembered just how good it was, so I decided that I wanted to watch the prequel trilogy to complete the whole saga that is Star Wars. I had seen the first two in the cinema but missed out on the third one for some reason. I enjoyed the first two when I saw them but I did not really remember much about them since it was a few years ago now that I'd seen them, but I was more looking forward to 'The Revenge of the Sith' because I'd not seen it!

The Phantom Menace - This one is probably the weakest of the whole Star Wars saga but it's a good film and sets the story up nicely for the other films. Liam Neeson was a good asset to this film and his character really brings the film together, and becomes an intergral part of the story. The best part of the film is probably the final battle between the Jedi and Darth Maul, which is awesome! However, the young Anakin does not do it for me at all. Overall 6/10

Attack of the Clones - This one was better than the previous one but still not quite reaching the hight of the original films. The story is good and sets up quite a few of the characters that would later be main parts of he story, mainly bounty hunter Boba Fett. It is also clear to see where the Stormtroopers come from. Good story, and well acted, especially Christopher Lee's character. Overall, 7/10

Revenge of the Sith - This one is awesome! It really completes the story and sets up 'A New Hope' perfectly. It's well acted, has some great action and characters, espcially driod leader General Grevious. He's such a great character! And it's also awesome to see Darth Vader again, even if it's only for a few moments at the end, and a work-in-progress of the Death Star. Overall. 9/10

These are good films, and recomended viewing for all.

Episode I THE PHANTOM MENACE

Is it really 11 years since The Phantom Menace brought Star Wars back to the Cinema after a 16 year hiatus? The hype and expectation for this movie was probably greater than anything before or since in movie history. What film could ever hope to live up to this hype and expectation? No film ever could. The initial response from fanboys and critics across the world was cries of anguish and pain. Claims of childhoods being raped drowned out the more sensible reflections that actually this movie whilst not particularly great, was as bad as many claimed it was. Now, almost a decade on from the initial release, perhaps the time is right for a more considered view of this film?

The Phantom Menace is the very definition of a "mixed" film. It has both good and bad points, and whether you end up liking this film will depend on;

1. Do the bad points outweigh the good points for you?
2. Do the good points outweigh the bad points for you?

Thus you will find the answer of whether or not this movie works for you, somewhere in the balance of the two.

Some of the bad points; George Lucas's direction is stiff. Lucas hadn't directed a film since 1977 and it shows.
Jar Jar Binks is annoying and tedious and frequently gets in the way, however, as with so many complaints about this film, Binks is NOT as bad as some would have you believe, and you CAN enjoy this film despite the presense of JJB. Children will love Jar Jar, so if you show this film to your 8 year old child, please don't let your loathing of Mr Bink's ruin your child's love for this character.
