Top Ten Reasons Why Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is an Awesome Movie

darthvadern
I know many people won't agree with me, but The Phantom Menace is an awesome star wars movie, here's why.

The Top Ten

1 The Darth Maul duel is epic

The Darth Maul duel is one of the coolest lightsaber duels in the whole Star Wars saga. - darthvadern

I Agree that was an awesome duel - VideoGamefan5

Ok I have to admit,I was quite shocked when I heard people say this movie was crap,I had actually loved it! I still do like it (hate me,but I don't follow the barbarous multitude),especially the pod racing sequence! - Toucan

2 Qui-Gon Jinn only appears in this movie
3 It shows who created C-3PO
4 All the scenes with Darth Maul on Coruscant, Tatooine, & Naboo are awesome and serious
5 The movie sets up Darth Maul's story and showcases his amazing defeat and that ties into a major plot of the Clone Wars & Rebels series where Maul returns, takes command of numerous criminal organizations, and attempts to exact vengeance
6 It shows were Anakin Skywalker came from
7 It shows us the Jedi in their prime
8 Jar Jar Binks is added so more people will watch Star Wars

Now listen, it was good that they added Jar Jar Binks, so younger kids will also watch star wars, and then in episode II, He made a smaller cameo so the younger kids get used to not having as much Jar Jar Binks as in the first movie, and then I episode III, Jar Jar is only in the movie for ten seconds, hopefully someone reads this.

P.S I love Jar Jar Binks - darthvadern

9 It features cooler Vehicles
10 It's fast-paced in the beginning

The Contenders

11 It seems like that Greedo's parents appears in this movie

On Tatooine when the pod racing is about to begin, you can see creatures that look like Greedo, who knows, maybe it's Greedo's parents. - darthvadern

12 It shows much bigger worlds
13 Jabba the Hutt & Bib Fortuna watch the race
14 It shows how R2-D2 became the most popular droid
15 Anakin Skywalker drives a Naboo Starfighter
16 Pod racing is awesome

I'm sorry but the pod racing was cringy - VideoGamefan5

The Pod race was my least favorite sequence of the movie and we didn't need to waste 20 minutes on that when we could have seen a lot more story development and character interaction or even more of Lord Maul, my all-time favorite Star Wars character. - PrinceZarbon
