Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 3D
The problem with The Phantom Menace is that it is very good in parts, especially the lightsaber duel at the end. But there are other parts that are so bad. Like whenever Jar Jar opens his mouth or Jake Lloyd's terrible acting.
Being in 3D doesn't really fix any of the bad parts, but it does make the good parts much shiny-er. It had been years since I last watched The Phantom Menace and I found myself really enjoying it, mostly because I knew and forgave it for it's flaws.
I think it was best said by a Facebok friend of mine when he was asked why in the world he was going to see The Phantom Menace at midnight opening day - Star Wars is still Star Wars. I've loved Star Wars since I was very small and even if it is the prequels, I'm going to go see it in the theater.
I find myself looking forward to having each movie being released in the theaters in 3D - especially since by the time they get to the originals, Emily will be old enough to not think they are "scary scary" and can come to the theater with us.
