    Its on TV 3 tonight, and I thought rather than focus on the negative aspects which so often happens when Episode 1 is mentioned, I thought it be fitting that we pay a tribute to the positive aspects of the film (which in my mind outweigh the negative.) I must say I apreciate Episode 1 much more now since the story has developed throughout the rest of the new trilogy.

    My favorite things about The Phantom Menace:

    The Music - Duel of the Fates rocks!
    The Technology - the Naboo N1 is my favourite behind the X-Wing
    The Duels - Darth Maul vs Obi Wan and Qui Gonn

    The costumes....

    Ewan.

    Both are eye candy of one kind or another in this setting.

    Am I allowed to say Jar Jar? :)

    I really liked the character of Qui-Gon ... so sad when he died :( I had no idea they were showing it on tv ... I walked into the lunchroom at work and saw Qui-Gon's funeral scene, and had to do a double-take

    I like "Episode 1" and get a little tired of people slagging it off.

    I also get sick of people slagging off ep1!

    The podracing scenes rock!

    The fight scenes between the 2 jedi and darth maul

    obi wans opening line "I have a bad feeling about this" classic star wars.

    I'm still out on jar jar he does provide a little comic relief but he's soooooo stupid!

    Good points:

    Duel of the fates score
    Final lightsabre battle
    Qui Gonn
    Seeing the Jedi Council for the first time
    Pod racing

    Low points:

    Jar Jar
    Travelling from Otoh Gunga to Theed City
    Anakin's 'mates'
    Lots of Anakins dialogue
    Kinda slow through the middle


    But generally i like it, some parts i can just skip thru on the dvd and that suits me fine :)

    BOOT HIM ANYWAY!!!

    Yea, I'm glad someone else thinks Qui gon (as a whole, and just by himself) is a high point. Liam is the man.

    I'm a fan of the whole thing. I can still remember JP seeing it first and telling me I'm going to LOVE the podrace scene... he was not wrong. :D

    and without being too much like Mr Negativity up there /\

    One thing that is awesome about the first episodes, but generally suck in the bigger picture. Are the saber duels. Watching Luke beat Vader is like, "OMG, this, actually really sucks!" I mean, sure - maybe he might lose some flare after becoming Vader, but really the prequels duels are kinda over-done compared to the Luke - Vader one"

    But! In saying that, these would have flopped if they didn't have kick arse scenes like yoda fighting and ani being all bad ass (for lack of a better term :p)

    just my little grip after watching the originals on DVD recently.

    I quite liked Episode 1, I thought it was done quite well. I loved the final fight with that was great, the pod race was great, Oui-Gon was a great character and Ewan played Obi-Wan very well.

    Good Points

    podrace minus the fact that Anakin is in it and the annoying 2 headed comentator.

    The saber duel

    The Battle Driods roger roger

    The Nemiodians accents and diolgue its hilerious

    The Bad Points

    Anytime Anakin or Jar Jar opened there mouth expecially when Anakin says yippee. I just keep saying shut up shut up shut up.

    Midiclorines lame

    Massive props for spelling "Anakin" incorrectly (twice!) in a Star Wars forum.

    (NCEA at it's prime.)

    I'm surprised/thankful he got Saber right. That's one thing that pi55es me off: sabre.

    Sabre just looks so stupid. I see it, and say sab re

    "Sabre" looks like some handmaiden's name.

    I think Darth Maul was cool, also Naboo looks like a nice place to live. So beautiful. :)
