Every Saga has a Beginning… Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999)

Star Wars: Episode 1And the marketing began anew. The story seemed horribly close to ‘Episode IV’, and yes, many a person was pissed to find out, a month before the film was released, Qui Gon didn’t make it to a sequel (and twice as pissed about Darth Maul), but it was Lucas back in action and Star Wars was reborn.

It was all new, yet eerily familiar. All in all, it was still cool. The introduction of new characters and the first look at familiar characters who we knew had 30 years before the time of the Rebellion’s first great victory upon the Death Star.

Jedi vs SithYeah, we knew who was who, and what laid ahead, but it was interesting all the same, even if it missed epic by just that much.

    The only thing that was genuinely great about this film, was John Williams’ ‘Duel of Fates’. Awesome piece of music. Quite possibly the most disappointing cinema experience of my entire life.
