“The Peter Principle” could be renamed “The Lucas Law”

I think I’ve brought it up before, but if you haven’t seen the greatest movie review ever done, I most highly recommend the seven-part brutally funny takedown of George Lucas’ Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace.
“Brutal” is an understatement.
“Funny” doesn’t come close to describing it.
And Language Warning should not be ignored by the sensitive.

While scanning channels yesterday, I noticed that the movie was airing on basic cable, so on a lark I recorded it, and watched it after work.
Wow.
It had been several years since I’d seen it. Holy cow, it really is awful. The creator of the above review could easily have gone another hour shredding the idiocy of the script (written by an eight-year-old, indeed) characters and action (“Infantry tactics? Never heard of them.”) not to mention some of the ludicrous design elements. I literally laughed out loud at some of the inane things gracing the screen that hadn’t been detailed in the review.
Two words: Midichlorian conception.
Fortunately, my time wasn’t completely wasted. I spent the duration of the movie working on my ship model and making good progress at it; details soon.
Do be sure to watch the review above in its entirety, all seven parts. Set aside a hour or so — it’ll be worth the time.
You’ll never again be able to watch the movie without thinking “What is wrong with your face?”
