Next Monday marks the four year anniversary of the release of Star Wars Episode One. After all this time to think about the movie and let it sink in, I'm not sure if it was that good. I mean, yeah, it was Star Wars and all, but something just didn't feel right. I mean, midichlorians? I have to say, I kind of liked Obi-Wan's explanation of the Force as a mystical energy field surrounding all living things. This whole scientific explanation thing falls sort of flat in my book. And why didn't Yoda train Kenobi? I thought that's what Obi-Wan explained to Luke. I mean, I had never even heard of this Qui-Gon guy. I really don't think Anakin should have built C-3PO, and in fact, I'm not sure if Threepio and Artoo should have been in the movie at all. And did you guys think Jake Lloyd was all that good of actor? There are times when I don't think he is. I think Natalie Portman had some rough spots, too. For some reason, Yoda didn't sound right to me, either. It's like his dialogue was over-inverted or inverted differently than it was in Episodes V and VI, or something. The dialogue overall, not just Yoda's, was kind of bad, too. And you know what, I hate to admit it, but than darn Jar Jar Binks sort of gets to me after while. Is it just me, or is he a little bit irritating? Anyway, these are just a couple of random thoughts. What do you all think? Was TPM really that great?
