    Well, I watched it until the guy pronounced Protagonist as "Pro-TO-gone-issed" and then he lost all credibility with me. You can't mispronounce a word you spell ON SCREEN and then expect to keep my attention. But I gave him a second chance until the guy said he was glad to hear that Ewan McDonald was going to be in the prequels as Obi-wan. Is that humor? The banter about his son killing himself in a bathroom didn't help either - what was that? Satire? Irony? Or is this supposed to be a precautionary tale? Whatever - not good.

    It doesn't take an idiot to see that the prequels aren't in the same league as the original trilogy, but we all give them too much of a hard time as it is to let this idiot pick it apart with his backward knowledge of film. Definitely not worth my 70 minutes. But worth my opinion. ;)

    I'm sure its very amusing. When it grosses 431 million domestic I'll listen to it. I understand the dissapointment of the prequels but do you think this guy is a fan of the O.T., Clone Wars etc. etc. or would he make fun of that too? For God's sake its a 10 yr old movie and he's just now able to muster up 70 min. worth of bashing and post it on the internet?! Just wait till he sees that Matrix sequel!

    I think you guys may have missed the point. He obviously does like the OT thats pretty obvious in the first 10 min segment. Some of the jokes work, "pro-toe-gan-est" thing was a joke. I laughed out loud. The dead son in the closet was stupid I will grant you that. This guy does know what the basic structure of story telling is though. He points out the flaws of TPM faily effectivly. He uses a goofy voice over and some bad puns but does have many many valid points. There are lots of little things in just the first 10 min that I found very amusing. You might want to give it another look with a more open mind. I don't hate TPM but Lord knows it could/should have been better. I didn't know 8049 and Sithmonger put it on such a pedistal that it couldn't be mocked. lol

    I thought the pro-TOE-gah-nist thing was hysterical. I thought it was done on purpose (maybe we were wrong) but I laughed aloud as well. Actually alot. Especially at the parts where they were describing the characters. And I seriously don't mind anyone making fun of something as long as they are a fan. I gathered he was a fan (again, possibly wrong) but in my mind it is the same as me making fun of BJ or the kids. I love them, but you can't help but just make fun of them!

    I definitely don't put TPM on a pedestal and already know what's wrong with it. But I guess I'm not "cool" if I can't sit through this guy's supposedly "genius" ranting about Episode I. And the protagonist thing - that's lame whether it's meant to be funny or not. Irregardless, 70 minutes is still 70 minutes and TPM doesn't mean that much to me either way. I think people are giving this guy waaayyyyy too much credit.

    I just think 10 years is way to long to post a review for a movie and really why would you write a negative review when you could be doing something you enjoy? It would be like me doing a PLANET OF THE APES review. I'm not gonnna put myself through that...even for the sake of humour.
