This astounding Phantom Menace video review has been making the rounds, and for good reason. This wickedly brutal analysis splits the film wide open, with clever edits and behind the scenes footage including Lucas' melt down at a Phantom Menace screening. (via mcleod)
Part 1: The truly epic review/critique/analysis/film making educational video of the 1999 film "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" There was so much to discuss with this film it had to be long so please don't complain. If you think it's too long then don't watch it. In this opening segment I discuss the major flaw of The Phantom Menace which is the characters and the lack of connection with the audience.
Part 2: Part two now focuses on the second biggest problem with the Phantom Menace, the story. The mystery plot lacking direction and emotional involvement was really the other big problem. No tension, no drama, no stakes. Characters aimlessly follow along the events.
Paaaaaart 3. Shit just got real.
Part 4: I squeeze gats till my clips is empty.
Part 5 focuses on the real "Phantom Menace" which is Qui-gon Jinn. His character makes no sense as do his actions. I also focus on Anakin Skywalker and how that character sucks too.
Part 6: Things that don't make sense at the ending and an analysis of light saber duels.
Part 7: The circle is now complete...
