Culturezoo VII: Star Wars Episode 1, The Phantom Menace. Act 2.

In this Culturezoo, Levi, Roz and Zach dissect the second act of Star Wars The Phantom Menace. We puzzle over the interesting direction this movie takes in the second act: namely, no direction. Over about an hour of screen time our heros accomplish nothing more than finding engine parts, betting on a noisy race, dabbling in some confusing politics and finally giving up in frustration and heading back to the conflict of Act 1.

Hey! Fun bit of trivia! Apparently they’re still making Star Wars movies. Who knew? Word of warning though: if you’re making 7+ movies, you gotta be prepared to beat the impossibly high standard set by the Land Before Time saga.
