Saturday, to celebrate its decade anniversary, we watched Star Wars Episode I with the accomanying Rifftrax.
I hadn’t watched it all the way through in ten years. Holy cow, I’d forgotten how bad it was. It’s like those Anita Blake comics where nothing happens. Even with part of the old MST3k crew making jokes I could barely sit through it, and even Mike Nelson and Kevin Murphy were reduced to shouting, “Will you just shut the hell up?” every time Jar-Jar opened his mouth.
I’m undecided: is the movie worse than the two Matrix sequels? The Matrix sequels take longer, but they didn’t squander two decades of goodwill in fifteen seconds flat.
