Re: The Prequel Trilogy General Discussion and Appreciation Thread
Watched The Phantom Menace today for the first time in what must be 10 years (finally got all the SW films on BD), and it was much better than I remember. There are still some amazingly cringey things in it like "YIPPEE," Jar Jar and some others, but overall I enjoyed it much more than I used too.
Qui-Gon and Darth Maul were awesome, Natalie was a potential hotty along with Keira Knightley in her small role (and we all know they ended up being those hottys now), plus Ewan was awesome as Obi-Wan. Replacing the puppett Yoda with a CGI one was much smoother than I was expecting as well. Consdering I always thought TPM the worst of the series, I cant wait to watch the other prequels again now.
