70min Review of Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace

WHAT AM I WATCHING? Only the most insightful and darkly comedic review of exactly why The Phantom Menace failed as a film. Not the usual fanboy re-treading of why Jar Jar Binks is simply Satan, instead the twisted narrator takes us on a technical tour de force of the failed plotlines and characters of George Lucas' sprawling mess of a movie. That the first line states "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is the most disappointing thing since my son" sets the tone and goes darker still seconds later with a suicide joke. If this sounds like your cup of tea, play on. If not - give it a shot anyway. The comedy might not click with the more meek minded, but the actual review is damn spot-on and worth investing 1.17 hours of your life on.
