"When a lot of folks saw Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace back in 1999, they developed a pretty strong opinion about it. There were pretty visuals, but not much focus on the storyline. Maybe the movie needed a Han Solo type to put things into forward gear — and for that matter, less of Jar Jar Binks, the annoying CG character that Lucas was depending on when it came to younger audiences. That said, there’s a certain admiration to be had for the film, even if it is the weakest of Lucas’ saga. Now it’s come back again, this time with a new 3D effect to take advantage of the cinematic craze that’s been around since Avatar. Does it pay off? For the most part, yes."
