Commentary: Star Wars 1: Phantom Menace (crazy Mr Plinkett edition!)

Netflix IMDb
Liam Nissan and Ewan McDonald’s use their laser swords to fight crime in the distant future! Natalie Portman and Keira Knightly are twins! Darth Vader wants to know: “Are you an angel?” A slave boy builds a diplomatic interpreter robot to help his mom do the dishes! The Jedi Council stops at nothing sends one Jedi and his apprentice to uncover the rising Sith menace. An aquatic rabbit bumbles thru the entire movie and wins a robot battle! And WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR FAAAACE?!

I edit Mr Plinkett of Red Letter Media into a commentary and interject my own observations and opinions (thereby breaking my pledge never to do a Star Wars commentary) whenever he runs out of things to rant about. Check out the original brilliantly funny and insightful video review of the film and several other terrific videos.

Warning: Strong language thruout. Also, strong weirdness on and off.

Note: This is a semi-authorized version of Mr. Plinkett’s work, in that he basically said, ‘Well, it’s not like I can stop you,” and I contributed to his legal defense fund.

Start the commentary with the 20th Century Fox fanfare, on the countdown. (65 MB)
