Idle 4

cowmix writes "When TPM came out ten years ago, its utter crappiness shocked me to the core and wounded a entire generation of geeks. My inner child had been abused and betrayed. I moped around, talking to no one, for almost two weeks. I couldn't bring myself to see #2 or #3, whatever they were called. Now, a decade later, comes "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Review" the ultimate seven part, seventy minute analysis of this mother of all train wrecks. Not only does it nail how the film blows, but tells us why. Time, apparently, does not heal all wounds."

That review is just brilliant! Very funny, and insightful. Many thanks for the link.

This is so frickin' old that I've gotten over saying "get over it".

Um... this story is not about how much Phantom Menace sucks balls. It's about the review, which was posted seven days ago.

Unwatchable (1)

Just like the prequels, this review is completely unwatchable - this guy sounds like a depressed Joe Lieberman, waggling his jowels in imitation of Jar Jar's leader (whatever the hell it's name was.)

I'm interested in hearing what he has to say, but there's no way in hell I can sit though an hour of that - is there a transcript somewhere?
