This forum will contain a scene-by-scene analysis of The Phantom Menace. Hopefully this will lead to new perspectives and theories of the film. Feel free to discuss the following: Acting Cinematography Sybolism Cameos Bloopers Dialogue Overall Impact Importance to the Saga as a whole Anything I think I will include interesting tidbits from the Insider's Guide and post those, which will add even more to the discussion. Maybe people will think Mr. Lucas should have gone with his first impulse or incorporate bits from other drafts. If you feel the scene being discussed is pointless, say so, but state why. I don't want this to turn into a basher/gusher feud. I'll post a scene hopefully each day, using the 50 chapters of the DVD as a guideline, unless a shorter scene is contained within that chapter and I think it should be discussed separately. When the entire film has been covered, we can discuss the deleted scenes and then the impact of the film 4 years later. I hope people are interested. This could turn into, hopefully, a very thought provoking thread that will shed new light on the first chapter in the Star Wars Saga and if there's enough interest, when this thread is done, we'll move to Attack of the Clones.
