Yeah, pharm that was a pretty eyebrow-raising way to start the return of the franchise after like a two-decade break.
I only wish I’d written this for that so-called “Star Wars Day” they tried to foist off on nerds when Star Trek was about to premiere. Also: worse than Jar-Jar and the Neimoidians? Jake Lloyd’s “Yippee!” in Watto’s shop. That thing just echos around my head for days.
(That said, decease I still like Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor quite a bit, and the supporting cast (especially Terrence Stamp) handle their work nicely.)
