Every Legend has a story and every saga has a beginning...
We all have choices we make in life sometimes they are for good reasons and sometimes the choices we make leads us down a path from wince there is no return. For Anakin Skywalker has walked this path and turned his back on everyone and everything he has ever known. But the biggest question that is lurking in everyone's mind is how did he choose the dark side over all that he knew and loved? Why would he help destroy everything that was so dear to him? Did he do it for power? did he do it for love? …

First of the infamous prequels for Star Wars. Suffers from a weak story that doesn't make sense and characters that don't resonate the way they should but at least it's fun. Try and ignore Jar Jar and the literal destruction of the magic that is the force and it's like I said, fun.

I remember reading all of the horrible reviews of The Phantom Menace and my disappointment upon first seeing the film. Admittedly, it's not the greatest Star Wars film and a lot of the criticisms are valid. However, I recently rewatched it with my wife and started to see some value in it. It is an adventure movie with some pretty cool scenes (the Darth Maul duel in particular). But more importantly, it isn't supposed to focus on character and plot development - that's for Episodes II and III. Rather, …

No movie got more hyped up or got people more excited then The Phantom Menace.      No, not even The Dark Knight, though it comes close.    In 1999, The Phantom Menace was talked about by everyone and before the movie opened, it's merchandising was everywhere.  Red and black Star Wars logos were on everything, toys, lunchboxes, posters, soda cans, video games, shampoo, fishing rods, charcoal, Batman toys etc.    Well okay, maybe …

A big budget and the first of Lucas's prequel trilogy has some impressive sights and action but the story is weak and Jar Jar is a pain.

In 1999 everyone was excited about Star Wars starting over.  It was now becoming a full circle thing.  We were going to learn about how Anakin was seduced by the dark side of the force.  But... is this something we really want?  It seemed like something Lucas wanted.  What could go wrong with making prequels?  I mean besides Lucas deciding that watching his original trilogy wasn't important?  Oh not much except giving us a different look at the biggest badass …

The Phantom Menace was probably one of the most anticipated movies of all time, and ended up disappointing a lot of folks. The DVD release has fared better. The DVD contains lots of special features that describe the technical, human, and creative work that went into creating Episode I. In doing so, this DVD has set the foundation by which all newer DVD releases are measured; how completely do the special features describe the movie and all the thought and work that went into making and advertising …

"The Phantom Menace" isn't what everyone expected it to be. Die-hard Star Wars fans were expecting another "A New Hope." Casual fans were hoping to get more of the whiz-bang adventure that was presented to them in the initial trilogy. Folks relatively new to the Star Wars phenomenon were left wondering what the big deal was over all of these films to begin with.    What we were actually given was a typical, contemporary, over-budget sci-fi flick that had great intentions and …
