    It's soooo hard to pick. Either Obi-Wan vs Maul or the Podrace.

    My favorite dramatic scene is probably Anakin's goodbye to his mother.

    Probably not my fav scene, but a very underrated scene is the first scene with Sidious and Maul on Coruscant. The cinematography, score, dialogue, EVERYTHING about that scene is great.

    I love the scene with Anakin's blood(hmm, that sounded sadistic). It's the dialogue and the general mood of it. The music is wonderful and it sets up the next scene perfectly.

    One of the few moments I actually like in TPM is the shot of Qui Gon, Obi Wan and Maul dis-robing as they prepare to fight. It's taken from behind and above them, pure cowboy gunslinger image as the robes fall to the ground. It's one of the few times that SW feeling hits me in TPM. :)

    Any one else have a 1-2 second perfect SW shot in TPM ?

    I know most of you gyus love it all, but I'm talking about split second 'yes SW moments'

    Who's intriged by all this talk about perceptions of TPM changing over time. His never has,from day one, he wanted to love it but couldn't :(

    The Duel of the Faates Music Video is one of the Greatest Music Videos of all time... I saw it, like three days before TPM came out and I Actually Strted (and couldn't stop) Trembling with Excitement.

    I too loved the Duel of the Fates Video that much ! The actual Jedi battle in the film felt spoilt to me intercut with Anakin and Jar Jar, but the duel elements were nice. And I still love that song :)
    Ah well :(

    The reason this thread isn't as active as others is mainly because we tend not to dwell on the good points of TPM and discuss them over and over. When there is discussion, we let ourselves be heard.

    well my favorite scene i think is a very popular scene, obi-wan vs darth maul. simply amazing the choreography of that scene.

    i also love the scene at qui gon's funerla where obi-wan turns to anakin when anakin says what is going to happen to me now. i just love ewan's acting of that part is very suttle but in a way powerful, well at least to me.

    I could never overcome the sheer brillance or the undeniable legend worthy art that is "The Phantom Menace."

    The birth chapter of the cult Star Wars Saga, conveys the feeling of introduction in such a way, that it destroys barriers and obtains the achievement of being able to act as a stand alone excellent film in-itself.

    A film which tells of many lessons, and themes in Myth, and life. The tale where, the only force who can defend a natives world, is the natire themselves. TPM, expresses, the fact that if we overcome our differences, and our backround, and all join forces, that we can do the impossible, and obtain the goals we always dreamed of.

    That the power to make dreams come true is not through strength or technology, but unity, and friendship.


    All told in a time period of royal gowns, and placid worlds, of noble knights, and beautiful Queens, of diversity, and royality. The Galaxy at its apex....meanwhile within the shadows of the ignored, lays the Phantom Menace whom plans to purge the Galaxy into evil, and dissent....one step at a time.


    Hello, fellow TPM Gushers! It is a divine pleasure to be here! :)

    Please, I would LOVE to be a part of the TPM Defense force! It is a disntict honor! :) Count me in.

    I would like to take this opportunity to resign from my position in the TPM Defense Force. I have given this alot of thought and see it as the best solution if I phase out, if not minimize, my presence in this forum from here out. I thank you all for allowing me to serve with you in this organzation. Best of luck to you all.

    I'm sorry to see you go Dash...

    Have you changed your feelings, don't have the energy, or simply lack the time?
