Phantom Menace Review

Warning: if you have violence or abuse triggers, these may not be the videos for you.

For the rest of you, this guy here gives an insanely trenchant (and... generally insane) dissection of why the phantom menace does not work as a narrative. It's point by point excellent, and it's both a good how to and how not to for adventure stories, particularly in the epic venue.

There's also some bits about gassing prostitutes to death as they scurry through crawl spaces trying to escape. I'm just saying.
