Something something father something reactor something plans to the death star something hope.

A pretty terrible episode. I'm not going to bother watching another of these..

An assassination attempt on a senator gets her two superpowered-bodyguards, one of whom has the hots for her and whose investigation leads to a mystery that has remained shrouded for ten years.

While nowhere near as good as I.I, this is an adequate watch and certainly head and shoulders above Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.

Definitely do not watch this until you have episode III lined up. At present, I do not know if there is a phantom edit of that. So.. I don't know if I can recommend this. Right now it's flagged as disliked, but I don't feel that I wasted my time watching it. I just feel let down by the ending.

The Trade Federation blockades a peaceful planet, and decisive action is required to bring political and military strength to bear.

An astonishing improvement on the original. Even though it's lower visual quality than it's original can be, it's worth a watch. Very highly recommended especially to fans of the original trilogy who were disappointed by this new trilogy.

  • Properly titled Star Wars Episode I.II: The Phantom Edit
  • This is an edit of Star Wars - Episode I - The Phantom Menace - (1999 movie)
  • Continues from Star Wars II.I - Attack of the Phantom - (2001 movie)
  • There was a Star Wars Episode I.I - The Phantom Edit (notice the I.I) which was a VHS-only release with a longer running length.

    • The DVD release cut two additional scenes.
    • I do not know if the VHS and DVD releases have different release dates, or know for sure if the one I reviewed was actually released in 2000.
  • TODO - this has a commentary track!

Random people go on a merry adventure looking for Luke.

DO NOT WATCH Not just because it takes a steaming dump overtop of the already steaming dumpyness of the prequils, but because it's badly written and unresolved. Go and watch The Matrix 2 instead. That piece of shit somehow has less issues.

A standard Robot Chicken, but with various skits parodying the Star Wars franchise.

Have a half hour to waste? Give this a shot, but if you don't like it within the first few minutes go do something better. Robot Chicken is hit-and-miss.

Yet another MMO, but this one is set in the Star Wars universe. Because light sabres, yo.

Conclusion: Amateur night.

This would have been great in the late nineties. Right now, the voiceovers are fantastic but the quest interactive cutscenes are ugly. The choices are sometimes vague and unforgiving. There is spectacular effort with all the rendered videos, but that just took away from resources for the game itself.

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith

coming later, if I can bring myself to watch it again

  • Properly titled Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

The fourth movie released

  • a phrase was repeated again up earlier..
  • 1:11:30 -- Those are some lame-ass Jedi. I'd begin that fight by bombing the building.
  • ~1:14:20 -- "He's too dangerous to be left alive" is repeated twice. The good guys and the bad guys saying the same phrase seems to be a theme.
