Cool Videos: The (Totally) Phantom Menace

03.21.2012

I'm typically loath to post anything STAR WARS related since most other movie websites already do it ad nauseam, but this cleverly and amusingly edited video from YouTube user 'FirstManOnTheSpoon' spoke to me. In a Text-to-Speech voice.

And basically, it picks apart one of the best sequences from THE PHANTOM MENACE: the final lightsaber duel. And FirstManOnTheSpoon's assertion is that, basically, it's not much of a "duel" at all...

If you see a cool video online you think would be perfect for this spotlight, drop us a line at yourvideos@joblo.com.

Aim like a drunkard...

Jump like an idiot. Damn that made me laugh. One of the only decent scenes in the entire movie though.

It's all for show, but once you realize they're not actually trying to hurt one another, it's distracting. Like the movie, the final fight makes no sense. It looks cool, but it's tacked on to the movie and just makes no sense to the plot at all. As pointed out in a review, if the Jedi displayed super speed in the opening of the movie, why didn't Obi-Wan display that same super speed to get to Qui-Gonn in time to help him during the fight with Darth Maul? It makes no sense!
