Star Wars I & II

Blockbusters Reviewed

Welcome to the 17th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts!  Last fortnight I reviewed Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983).  This fortnight, I’m reviewing:

  • Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999), rated PG for mild violence
  • Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002), rated PG for mild themes and violence

Those are the Australian ratings; in the United States, they’re rated:

  • The Phantom Menace – PG for sci-fi action/violence
  • Attack of the Clones – PG for sustained sequences of sci-fi action/violence

As usual, I give the trailer and a clip at the end.  And as usual, I offer the following disclaimer just to be safe:

  1. I love all the Star Wars movies and we have them all. They are always fun to watch. Not a big fan of Jar Jar Binks though! 🙂 I do like Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn though. Heard he might return as Qui-Gon in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. Not sure if they are really making that or not yet. It would be a follow up to the newest one that is out about Han Solo. They could do a lot of movies. Hope they are good. God bless!

    1. Ewan McGregor is returning as Obi-Wan for a TV series. Yeah, I think the Obi-Wan movie may have been put on hold after Solo flopped (a pity – it was a fun movie, and completely outside the traditional mold of the series).
      Awesome about owning them all!

  2. I can’t honestly say that I liked the first three of these movies much. Maybe I would have liked them more if I would have seen them in order of events instead of the order they were released. But I do love the most recent movies that have been coming out!

    1. You didn’t like Revenge of the Sith?! (LOL)
      I watched them in order of release.
      Yes, the newer ones are awesome; particularly Rogue One and The Last Jedi.
      Revenge of the Sith is my personal favourite SW movie (and personal all-time favourite movie), and The Last Jedi second-favourite.

    2. P.S. Last night I watched the original Stargate for the first time & loved it. Also recently saw the animated Beauty and the Beast for the first time since I was a young kid, and loved it as well. I also finally decided to give the Harry Potter movies a go, and found them to be much better than some make out.

      1. I haven’t seen Stargate. I should check that out. We had a Harry Potter Movie-a-thon years ago and watched all of them in a few days. It was really fun. I liked the movies, but I found Harry Potter himself to be somewhat inept and if it weren’t for Hermione rescuing him constantly, he would never have made it to the end. LOL. But he pulled through and did extremely well in the last movie.
