Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace 3D

I gave this film a positive review when it first came out. I was young; I was prone to huffing paint; I didn’t have my priorities straight. That, or this just felt better going down in the late ’90s. Or maybe seeing it in crap 3-D brings out the worst in the film. It’s a little harder to accept Jar Jar Binks when he’s coming at you in three (or, really, 2 1/2) dimensions. The 3-D sort of punches one’s eyeballs around, especially during the pod races, which now look blurry due to the 3-D retrofitting. Liam Neeson’s wig doesn’t benefit from the 3-D, either; it is far too vivid and obviously fake. The Darth Maul battle is still cool, but that’s about the only true enjoyment in this visually abrasive version. I am not excited about Attack of the Clones in 3-D. Not excited at all.
