Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D Review
Jay Cochran - February 17, 2012

Weve probably all seen Star Wars Episode 1 in the theatres, on DVD/Blu-Ray, or on TV, so Im not going to focus on the plot, characters, or special effects. Instead, Im focusing on the 3-D which was the trigger for returning the movie to the theatres. Frankly, I was very disappointed. While Im not a huge fan of the 3-D phenomenon in general, I was expecting more from Lucas, a man who always tries to be on the cutting edge of technology. I realize converting an older movie like this to 3-D probably limits what you can do, but if this is the most you can do then whats the point?

When it comes down to it, I saw very little difference between the 3-D version and the regular version. Yes, the movie is blurry without the glasses, but nothing really popped out at the screen at me when I wore them. Little things like the opening sequence and outer space in general seemed a little more 3 dimensional and some details of the movie seemed to be a bit sharper. For instance, I noticed teeth marks in the Gungan submarine that Obi-Wan and company use to get to the Naboo city (after escaping dinner plans by a sea creature) for the first time and certain colors seemed sharper like Wattos blue color and the new Yoda definitely looked better. However, none of that was really worth price of a movie ticket these day or really added anything to the overall experience of seeing the movie.

If you just like seeing Star Wars movies (even Episode I) on the big screen go check this one out, but if you want to see something new or innovative in the world of 3-D technology, dont waste your time and money. Just pop that new Blu-ray version in and watch it from the comfort of your home.
