Flick of the week

While I'm on the topic of movies, I like reading the Sunday newspapers - they're an excellent source of news horoscopes. Anyhow, I was astounded to the Sunday Terror's Flick of the Week is The Phantom Menace! Now there's something I didn't expect to see in my lifetime. This pithy piece of journalism starts off saying it might look a bit dated now compared to Avatar but it's still a great film. Still great? WHEN? AND when was this films outdated story telling with it's racial stereotypes, nonsensical plotting (metachlorines my ass!), plodding pace and borderline crappy CGI ever in date? How is this the flick of the week? (particularly in a week featuring Being John Malkovich and The Player?)

Surely, this is one of the seven signs of the apocalypse in revelations... I'm starting to feel like this guy...



  1. that video is hilarious. Mr Masterson has a site, I think it could be digitally carbon-dated back to the late 80s...

  2. That's quite a website - I like at the bottom his offer to build you one just like it. This internet thing might just take off...
