So why do people think it is? It's a fantastic story with great locations, themes, and characters (and yes, Jar Jar was essential to the story).

What's with all the hate on it?

Of the last three movies I liked Phantom Menace the best...

Because it didn't look or feel like the classic, eternal Star Wars everyone had been used to.

It was just a disappointing heir.

I happened to like it (except Jar Jar Binks...I have a funny story about him and Diablo 2...another story for another day...), the music was superb, and the story was good. The dialogue was considerably better than any of the movies that came after it.

I didn't see any fault with TPM, except the begining seemed too abrupt. Too bad episodes 2 and 3 weren't as good.

Weird, because me being a nineties child, and The Phantom Menace being the first SW movie I've seen, makes it feel so much more... nostalgic, maybe? I don't know the exact words for it. Like, it made me open my eyes to the world of fantasy and science fiction, and that the universe is infinite. To this day, I still will enjoy watching it, and I never get tired of the story. I just love to watch it play out in front of me.

I didn't really give ten craps about Star Wars in the nineties. Just seemed like something the uncles talked about. Then this "bad ass space movie" comes out, I just had to try it.

All I know is that TPM had one of the best saber battles ever:
