Quotes

[first lines]
Plinkett: Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is the most disappointing thing since my son. I mean, how much more could you possibly fuck up the entire back story of Star Wars? While my son eventually hanged himself in the bathroom of the gas station, the unfortunate reality is that the Star Wars prequels is that they'll be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

Informative and entertaining film analysis
20 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though the dark gallows humor and occasional (but intentionally) tasteless jokes may not suit everybody, this review and the two which follow it are the best analyses available of this ill-begotten trilogy.

Its examination of the Star Wars prequels is thorough, not merely comparing it unfavorably with the original trilogy, but also revealing how they fail on their own merits as films. The reviewer uses film history, Star Wars history, and behind-the-scenes footage to dissect these movies. He leaves no room for improvement with his examination. You also feel like you've learned more about cinema as a medium when you are through with it.
