There’s a special place in hell for all those who love the Star Wars prequels, and I have a reserved seat waiting for me. The prequels are what I grew up on, I was 6 years old when they came out and had never seen any of the previous movies. My dad made us wait in a line that stretched down the parking lot to see Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and that movie is what started my obsession with this franchise. (He also got me to watch all the Die Hard movies by taking me to see Live Free or Die Hard, which is one of the better Die Hards).
It’s been 20 years since The Phantom Menace was released, and I encourage everyone to give it another chance if you’re still on the fence about the prequels.
