I just posted a review of the Phantom Menace on yahoo’s site after reading moron after moron saying how excited they are about shelling out $14 to be spoon-fed fecal matter. They’ll probably take it down, so I’m posting it here:
With its pedigree and expectation, this is probably the worst film of all time. And as time goes by it stinks even more.
I remember seeing it the midnight premiere showing in San Francisco. 20 minutes into it I was looking around, wondering if I was being punk’d.
Lucasfilm is so ashamed of this movie, the title is barely legible on all the billboards and ads.
Jar-Jar is the least of the film’s problems. I suggest googling “Phantom Menace review” to understand the full fetid splendor of this ass-terpiece.
I’ll only excuse the ten year olds when it comes to this film. The rest of you going to see it oughta be ashamed of yourselves. Hold off until the real trilogy begins.
