Why Star Wars: Episode 1 Sucked - in 70 Minutes

70 Minutes?!? You gotta be kidding me!

Just finished watching these this morning, I was mesmerized... Episode 1 the Phantom Menace sucked so bad, you need 70 minutes to explain why. No worries, you don't need to pencil out a large chunk of you day to watch, it is nicely broken up into ten minute chunks.

Ever watch something that you liked as a kid, but when you see it as an adult you think, "that sucked, why did I ever like that"? You liked it because as a kid you are much easier to entertain. Things like 'The A-Team', 'CHiPs', and even some Christmas specials. It ruins the memories of joy I had as a kid to see these things as an adult. Sure I'll pull up the theme songs, or watch the opening occasionally on YouTube and it gets me excited... But any more than that and it is a downer.

After seeing 'The Phantom Menace', I was a bit worried that the same held true for the the original three Star Wars films. I went back and watched them. Thankfully, they still hold up well in my opinion. It is just the new ones that sucked. Like this reviewer says, they were written for babies. I blamed the stink on the Jar-Jar character but as this fella shows, it goes way beyond that.

No worries, this isn't some 'fanboy' review, it is very well done and humorous. Do yourself a favor and watch these.
