What if "Star Wars Episode 1" Had Actually Been Good?

When George Lucas released Star Wars Episode 1, nobody questioned the "master". I mean, you'd think that after producing iconic movies that shaped the culture of generations, Lucas would know what he was doing. I think we all saw evidence of the contrary when Jar Jar Binks appeared on the big screen for the first time.

But the genius mind behind Belated Media asks: what if Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace had actually been, you know, really good? It turns out not only it could have been possible, but that some kid you've never heard of before has a better grasp on what it takes to make a good movie than George Lucas himself.
