Contains EPISODE 1, EPISODE 2, and EPISODE 3 of George Lucas's STAR WARS series. The films are otherwise known as THE PHANTOM MENACE, ATTACK OF THE CLONES, and REVENGE OF THE SITH and serve as a prequel to STAR WARS - A NEW HOPE (EPISODE 4), THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (EPISODE 5), and RETURN OF THE JEDI (EPISODE 6).
The first of three prequels to George Lucas's celebrated STAR WARS films, EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE is set some 30 years before the original STAR WARS EPISODE 4 - A NEW HOPE in the era of the Republic. Naboo, a peaceful planet governed by the young but wise Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman), is being threatened by the corrupt Trade Federation, puppets of an evil Sith lord and his terrifying apprentice, Darth Maul (Ray Park). Jedi knights Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor, performing an amazing vocal imitation of Alec Guinness, the older Obi-Wan) are called on to intervene in the trade disputes. Along the way, they acquire an apprentice of their own in the form of young prodigy Anakin Skywalker (Jake Lloyd), or as STAR WARS fans know him, the future Darth Vader. They also encounter Jar Jar Binks (Ahmed Best), a goofy, lizardlike creature who has been banished from his underwater world for clumsiness. When the Trade Federation launches an attack on Naboo, the queen and her allies must battle hordes of robot troopers while Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan face off against the sinister Darth Maul.
In the second installment of the STAR WARS series, EPISODE 2 - ATTACK OF THE CLONES, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) is now a teenage Jedi apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor). Together they must protect Senator Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman) from a militant group of political activists who are trying to assassinate her. This group is led by the evil Count Dooku (Christopher Lee). But aside from other troubles, Anakin faces some hard choices as he begins to fall in love with Padme, a love that is forbidden by the Jedi knights' creed. In addition, Anakin begins to show his rebellious attraction to the dark side--which will eventually conquer him, when he becomes the future Darth Vader.
In EPISODE 3 - REVENGE OF THE SITH, Anakin Skywalker remains the Jedi apprentice of master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Battling dark forces that threaten the Republic, the duo quickly eliminates enemy Count Dooku, and Anakin proves as he states more than once that his powers have doubled. An intimidating warrior with superior knowledge of the Force, Anakin becomes the pet of Chancellor Palpatine, who is connected to the dark side. Meanwhile, Padme--the senator and former queen who is secretly married to Anakin--is pregnant, and Anakin is tortured by dreams of her dying in childbirth. With Obi-Wan on Utapau battling cyborg General Grievous, and Yoda joining the Wookiees of Kashyyyk, the sage warnings of the Jedi council go unheard by Anakin. His moodiness and glowering are a clear precursor to his inevitable, terrifying metamorphosis into Darth Vader, the dark leader of the evil Empire who haunts the remainder of the series.

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - The opening chapter in the fabled Star Wars saga: two Jedi knights, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), must rescue the young Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman) and help her save her home planet, Naboo, which is under blockade by the ruthless trade federation. When the federation attacks, the Jedi spirit the queen away to relative safety on the desert planet of Tattooine. It is there that Qui-Gon discovers a boy, enslaved by evil gambler Watto, who has the potential to become the most powerful of the Jedi. His name: Anakin Skywalker...
Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones - Anakin Skywalker disobeys the strictures of his Jedi training, embarking of a forbidden affair with Padme Amidala while his teacher Obi-Wan Kenobi's investigation of assassination attempts against the Senator leads him to the distant planet of Kamino and into the middle of a separatist plot which brings the Galactic Republic to the very brink of civil war...
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith - As the Clone Wars rages on, the rift between Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) and the Jedi Council widens. Young Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), is caught in the middle, his allegiances torn. Seduced by promises of power and the temptations of the dark side, he pledges himself to the evil Darth Sidious and the Sith Order, becoming Darth Vader. Together, the Sith Lords set in motion a plot of revenge against the Jedi, in an attempt to destroy them all. Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), refusing to believe that Anakin is lost to the Sith, tries to turn his old Padawan learner back to the light side, leading to a climactic lightsaber battle that will shape the fate of the galaxy forever.

Instore 2 for £20 at Asda. For both sagas.

Heated due to being cheaper indvidually.
Red Hot
You'd have to pay me £12 just to watch these again.
This may be controversial but i actually think Phantom Menace is the best film of the 3. Episode 2 is tragic and Episode 3 isn't much better.

Thats not controversial... thats just ridiculous! :giggle:

Episode 3 is the best of the prequels, episode 5 the best of the originals.
Episode V is the best film by far.

Lines such as:

Leia: I love you
Han: I know

Vader: Luke, I am your father!
Luke: Nooooooo!!!!!

Yoda: Do or do not, there is no try.


I'm off home to watch this right now, it's got me star wars juices flowing again.

i'll +1 you on that. Darth Maul was the best thing about the prequels
who doesn't own this by now? :whistling:

Er ... me.

I refuse to buy any Star Wars movies until there is a complete box set of all 6 movies, preferably in Blu Ray format. That's even though I don't have a player or HD set yet - but it would be a damn good excuse for a trip to Mos Eisley to upgrade and watch them :p

Cheers! The fight at the end is the best bit in the prequels. This may be a bit geeky but i love it when Darth Maul uses the force to throw an object at the button to open the door when he is walking backwards at the start of the fight.

The pro's brought in by Darth Maul (vastly underused in the film BTW) are far outweighed by the con's of Jar Jar Binks, Anakin saying "Yippee!" (twice!!!) and the underwater craft scene... "theres always a bigger fish"!

Episode two is also spoiled by the factory scene, C3-P0's head swap in the battle arena, Young Boba Fett ("Get him dad!") and Obi-Wans ever changing facial hair throughout the movie!

Episode 3 isn't perfect, but its tone is much darker, without too much of the comedic, family friendly moments.

I rank them:

best: Empire
Star Wars
worst: Menace
who doesn't own this by now? :whistling:

Anyone who only buys good movies?
