Seriously! I've seen it twice so far, and each time people laughed and cheered at all the right spots, even Jar Jar got a few laughs. The theaters were packed, I saw kids, young guys, girls, older men and women, pretty much every demographic out there. After 13 years of fanboy hatred, annoying critics, and pointless, useless 70 minute Youtube reviews, you know what I realized? They were WRONG. This movie kept everyone entertained. Not once, and I mean not even one time did anyone bust out a cell phone or appear bored, everyone was engrossed by it. The biggest laugh of the movie was brought upon by.........*gasp*.........Jar Jar Binks, someone these fanboys will lead you to believe is responsible for world hunger. We all clapped when Obi Wan sliced Darth Maul in half. It's amazing to me that a movie that's almost 20 years old can be re-released during our time and still have an impact, especially when people already know what's gonna happen. It goes to show how well-rounded and magical The Phantom Menace is. It's got action, kiddy humor, political intrigue, but most importantly, it's got heart, something that's been sorely lacking in movies these days. That flick with Leo Dicaprio about dreams? So cold and lifeless. When Anakin leaves his mother, you can just feel that, and that's the power and magic of Star Wars. So, I pose this question to RLM, Simon Pegg, and anyone else who hated on this movie for 13 years - what did you accomplish? Here, I'll answer it for you: Not A Damn Thing Thank you, George, for making us feel like happy children all over again.
