Cool Videos: How it should have ended: Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

02.04.2014

Y'know, this is almost too easy of a target for the How It Should Have Ended series, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be done. STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE is probably one of the most polarizing films ever made. While young generations just introduced to Star Wars loved it, the "original trilogy" generation were left with "raped childhoods." However hyperbolic you want to be about the film, there's still no denying that it's got some serious plot and character issues, which HISHE tackles here, albeit with tongue planted firmly in cheek. I often wonder how Lucas really feels, in retrospect, about the decisions he made on the film, particularly on the huge gamble to place Jar Jar into such a key role, which ultimately was a losing bet. Either way, it's fun to revisit the "what if's" of stuff like this, right?

Enjoy:

I'm pretty sure that J.J. Abrams is doing everything he can to keep STAR WARS: EPISODE VII from being anything like this. In that sense, Episode 1 serves a great purpose...as a cautionary film in the franchise.

It was funny, I don't think they've ever done one that's terrible. All the cameos in the Senate scene, such as from Superman and Supergirl and from the Alf species, were cute.

Still Love the Movie

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. ut I will never understand the slack this movie keeps on getting. I thought it was awesome. Out of the 3, this was the only one to give me the thrill of the originals.Clones being the worst with Christianson acting like a spoiled child. Phantom had so many returns to so many things. Tunisia, R2D2, Creation of Threepio and this strangely calm and collected kid who you KNEW would someday be the ultimate evil.

Good stuff, but...

...they pretty much just ripped off most of the criticisms from the RedLetterMedia review which, by the way, completely and totally eviscerated ALL the prequel movies. Seriously, check those reviews out. They're long (split into two 30 minute parts) and has some 'interesting' storylines happening alongside the actual review, but it's hilarious and totally worth it. You'll never look at the prequels the same way again, guaranteed.
