I am probably one of the rare people who actually liked Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. I did not care for the next two, but I thought this one was top notch. The score is so good, and the character of Darth Maul is excellent. George Lucas is re-releasing Star Wars in 3D. While I am sure this is a play for more money, as George Lucas has a reputation for, but this film certainly works as a 3D film without adding anything new to it. The cast includes Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd, Ian McDiarmid, Pernilla August, Oliver Ford Davies, Hugh Quarshie, Ahmed Best, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Frank Oz, Terence Stamp, Brian Blessed, Andrew Secombe, and Ray Park.
“Join the celebration as Star Wars returns to theaters. Discover how the epic story of Anakin Skywalker begins on the big screen for the first time ever in 3D. A young slave boy on the desert planet Tatooine, Anakin is strong in the Force, and an amazing Podracer pilot. Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn discovers Anakin and sees his potential to be a great Jedi Knight. Meanwhile, the droid army of the greedy Trade Federation invades the peaceful planet of Naboo as part of a secret plot by the Sith to gain power. In defending Queen Amidala of Naboo, the Jedi Knights will cross lightsaber blades with the deadly Sith Lord, Darth Maul.”
Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace (3D) is in theatres February 10, 2012. It will be in 2D theatres as well.
Are you going to shell out some money to see this in 3D?
Phantom Menace better than the next two? Are you freakin’ crazy!?
No, I am not. The next two were pretty atrocious. I did not even see the third one in the theatres.
