Sunday Movies: Waiting For the Phantom Menace

... no one else is waiting with them because the Phantom Menace was the worst movie in the Star Wars series.-Explain XKCD: Phantom Menace

Jar Jar Binks missing from trailer (what a surprise)

The trailer goes out of its way to highlight all of the scenes that are likely to look the best in 3D, assuming the quality of the conversion is good. Will fans turn out in droves to see The Phantom Menace all over again?-Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 3D Re-Release Trailer In High-Res

Watching the official trailer, I get the feeling that not even Lucasfilm is convinced that a third dimension is going to improve The Phantom Menace.-How the Phantom Menace 3D Trailer Really Improves Episode I

I can't imagine anyone wanting to return to a theater to see this clunker. Once was enough (I saw it on its initial release) and wouldn't want to view it on the big screen again (perhaps I'd watch the DVD one more time, if I ran out of anything else to watch) in 2D or 3D. Besides, I don't even like 3D when it's a film I want to see, and if I movie I want to see has a 2D version, I'll go out of my way to choose that option over the pointless 3D one. I want to be told a story in a dark theater, idiots, not be assaulted with your stupid gimmicks!

More often than not, the 3D versions of huge blockbusters are failing to generate the cash the 2D versions are pulling in.-2D Versions of Films Are Out-Performing Their Pricey 3D Counterparts

Any Star Wars or 3D fans out there disagree?
