The Continued Ruination of Star Wars

I need to stop underestimating the Star Wars franchise’s ability to continue to suck. Just when I think there’s nothing left to ruin, something like this comes along: a trailer for the upcoming 3D re-release of The Phantom Menace that not only lines up some of the worst parts of the worst movie of the saga for all to see, but features the most annoying trailer narrator in all of history. Seriously, somebody needs to fire this guy, and maybe George Lucas while we’re at it for trying to milk more money out of the worst Star Wars movie. I really, really hope that The Phantom Menace flops in theatres this time around, just so George can see how it would have performed at the box office upon its initial release – y’know, without 16 years of anticipation behind it. Ugh, just the thought of this rinky-dink preview makes me shudder. I understand that it’s a kids’ movie and it’s being marketed towards kids here, but that doesn’t mean it has to be excruciating.
