OKAY…a small change of plans. Since Big D and others are very interested in hearing my thoughts on Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace 3D (which I saw yesterday), I figured I would switch The Phantom Menace with Chronicle in my review order. So for those of you waiting for my Chronicle review, look for it at the same time tomorrow.
As far as this current review goes – well, I’m going to do things A LITTLE BIT differently. First off, I’m NOT going to get into a full review of The Phantom Menace itself – I will only be looking at how good the 3D is (since that is the main selling point of the re-releases). Secondly, because this isn’t a normal movie review, I decided to draw inspiration from an article I read earlier today on Moviefone.com. In a nutshell, I will be recounting my experience viewing Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace 3D through a time log that I kept during the film – similar to what I did in the early days of The Wide World of Sports-Entertainment when RAW and Impact were going head-to-head.
This weekend is going to be one of my ultra-rare “3 reviews in 3 days” weekends (I think the last time I pulled one of these off was last summer, if my memory serves me correctly). Mainly, I’m doing this for two reasons – one, because I have some catching up to do review-wise, and two, I actually have a lot to say about all three movies I will be reviewing this weekend (well, the first two at least – haven’t seen the third one yet).
I’m gonna start this “review weekend” off by discussing the first film of the three I have seen – The Grey, starring Liam Neeson.
