Must Watch Videos: The (Totally) Phantom Menace

This is an entry in our Must Watch Videos segment, which is where we take a look at some of the best, funniest or most bizarre videos on the Internet. Usually found on YouTube, we’ll post the videos here so that you don’t have to take the time to look all of this up on your own. It’s just one of the many good things we do for our readers here at BoomPopMedia. You’re welcome, America.

I have no shame in admitting that I love the lightsaber fight scene at the end of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Actually, sans Jake Lloyd, I love just about everything from Star Wars: Episode I. Star Wars – Episode I – Racer? Hell yeah. Star Wars Episode 1: Battle for Naboo? Also hell yeah.

That all having been said, I can admit that the plot isn’t that airtight. There are some things that would bother me much more if they were in, say, a Batman movie. (A jail that can be escaped by just climbing out? Are you kidding me, The Dark Knight Rises?) This video does a nice job of pointing out that the lightsaber fight between Qui-Gon Jinn/Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul isn’t quite as cool as I remember it being.

All that having been said, I still love that scene. I think we need to to add a Star Wars section here at BPM. What do you think, Baby Birds?
