This most excellent presentation explores the Star Wars prequels in a light that makes one understand the necessity of these films as well as the reality that many fans of the original Star Wars trilogy were expecting something that their imagination had hyped up way too much. This film is a necessary result of too much criticism that lashed out towards very successful yet critically bashed movies that are in fact very very entertaining stand alone projects that ultimately are just as beloved as the original trilogy only by different minded individuals. A great and well executed idea for a film about a popular film series. Weatherholt has hit a nostalgic note that should resonate a revolution of re-visiting certain films over the last 15 years and not just the prequels. Thank you for this film Bradley!
