STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE

Episode 1 of the Star Wars Saga - the forth movie in the series.  For us old timers Episode 4: A New Hope was STAR WARS. In 1999 . Many of the people who went to see it were not even born when the first one came out.  The first three movies are the saga of Anakin Skywalker.  This give his childhood and meeting with a young Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi.  How the droids R2D2 and 3CPO became part of his life.  Critics panned this movie as not being up to the rest of the Star Wars Saga, but this was a needed part to complete the whole.  It gave us the roots of the saga. And much like all the rest it was a Wild Ride.  When watching don’t be a nitpicker, remember it’s Space Fantasy, not SF.  Set back and enjoy the ride.  Watch young Anakin as he meets the players of the Star Wars Saga, some just talked about until now. This along with the other five episodes are now released on a new Blue Ray edition.
