The Phantom Menace
Join hosts Erin McGowan, Alex Kormann, and Matthew Fox as they discuss Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. What was our first viewing of the movie like? How have our feelings on The Phantom Menace changed over the years? We discuss what we liked and what didn’t work for us, how the movie fit into the version of the past the Original Trilogy paints, and then dive into ethical questions such as the nature of the Force, was Qui-Gon Jinn wrong to try and use mind tricks on Watto, and why Natalie Portman’s Queen Amidala was giving side eye flirts to a 9 year old Anakin Skywalker.
