Did anyone really like The Phantom Menace? It was a disappointment to every longtime Star Wars fan who’d spent years waiting for the saga to continue and then seeing what it was.
The people at Wisecrack took a look at the movie and why it wasn’t very good.
True, by Wisecrack’s own admission, they aren’t the first to do something like this, and the movie has been out for years, so why bother saying something now? As it is, they have a point to make regarding how character decisions can and should work, comparing Phantom Menace, and by extension all the prequels, to other movies and TV shows like Game of Thrones, Rogue One, and the original Star Wars trilogy. Plus, you can see who they blame for the rise of the Empire. Hint: it isn’t who you think it is.
