Why Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace is a Good Movie

A not-so long, long time ago in a galaxy actually pretty close, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace hit the big screen. May 19, 1999 to be exact. Now, 13 years later, the movie returns to the big screen, only this time in three dimensions. The movie has taken a lot of hits. There are a plethora of articles and hit-pieces on the movie. The criticisms typically come from those who have never entered a pod-race or engaged in a duel with a double- bladed lightsaber.

I, however, enjoyed Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Why you may ask. No I have not gone crazy.
