UPDATE: Since I can’t get this GIF to work for unknown reasons, click here for a much more awesome version of it (thanks Zarq)
UPDATE 2: It works now, but still click on that link above.
Confession time: When The Phantom Menace came out, I absolutely loved it. The podracing, the lightsaber fights, all of it, was just so cool, I didn’t understand what the controversy was about. But then I turned thirteen and had a change of heart.
I saw the new trilogy for what it was, a shameless parade of merchandising held together by an exceptionally shoddy plot and poor dialogue which created poor performances from other good actors. Except for Hayden Christensen, who is terrible no matter the script.
Even the fight scenes were lame, as they were all flash and no substance. In trying to be “epic” like in the finale of Revenge of the Sith, they just became goofy, fighting on lava platforms and crawling up the sides of buildings. Light saber fighting and force powers have never been as good as they should be in ANY of the movies, and you should take a look at the Force Unleashed video game series, which is aptly named as it shows exactly how the Force SHOULD be used onscreen.
