Sense the future, once all Jedi could

As predicted in my blog a few weeks back, I went to see Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace in 3D. I borrowed a pair of twin boys to try and further justify this odd decision. Approaching the film without the high hopes I did in 1999, did help my enjoyment. The myriad problems in plot, characterization, and stereotypes remain. The 3D added little, often just a single object in the foreground against a flat background, which actually reduced the sense of depth. If 3D is going to work, it is clear that a movie needs to be created with the intention of being in 3D; retro fitting it does not work.

However, when Attack of the Clones arrives, I am sure that all the reasons against going, which include the most excruciatingly awful dialog in movie history, will be outweighed by the “It’s Star Wars” argument.

  1. Yes, it was a deficient film for the reasons listed above – plus, generally bad acting which further highlighted the crummy dialog. The only bright spot in the movie was Ewan McGregor.

  2. “borrowed a pair of twin boys” ?!
