    It says they wanted a jailbait queen.

    They all love her on facebook.

    She was elected - what does that say about the planet?

Basic geology has little grounding when creating other planets, as a planet without a molten core would function just as fine and possibly better foliage-wise as Earth ever was.

              Midi-chlorians are translators, not hosts of the force. "They continually speak to you, telling you the will of the Force. When you learn to quiet your mind, you will hear them speaking to you."

              All the time I thought of the Force like some kind of psionic power - Telepathy, Psychokinesis and ESP - but no, it has to be lame organelles which sound like mitochondria for some even lamer reasons. G. Lucas must have spent some time in a waiting room reading medical magazines while waiting for his brain cancer treatment.

              The force is not spiritual. It's biological and Aryanistic!

            In Star Wars: A New Hope we are told that the Force is this magical energy force that binds the universe together. In Phantom Menace we learn that the force is just bacteria in our bloodstream. This has got to be the biggest plot reversal and let down of all time.

              And we learned that these "bacteria" impregnated a woman to create an offspring - perv bacteria.

            Ignoring Yoda and Mace Windu had no negative effects whatsoever

              Quite to the contrary...Anakin was only trained because Obi Wan and Qui Gon ignored Yoda and Mace Windu. Yoda attempted to mitigate the issue by allowing Anakin to be trained; he hoped that Anakin receiving official training would be better than Anakin receiving training from Obi Wan, ostracized by the Jedi Order.

              The pick-up line, "Are you an angel?" sounds desperate and creepy even when it comes from the mouth of a 9-year-old kid.

                    In spite of a large range of weapons from various cultures to choose from, the double-sided light saber will be the only variation on the light saber design throughout the franchise. Not counting Dooku's "Limp" saber.

                              Lucas watched too much Ben-Hur and almost forgot he was making a Star Wars movie somewhere in the middle of the story.

                                          A Jedi that can sense fear in trade officials a whole ship away will be surprised to know that the Queen is a double.

                                            Next time, try spinning - it's a good trick.

                                            With a magnificent sub-title like "The Phantom Menace", something like "The Revenge of the Force" was probably also in consideration.

                                                The fun fact is that in Star Trek mind tricks don't work on Ferengi either - looks like greed makes you somewhat immune!

                                                When a planet is about to be invaded, the best thing for you to do is to go down to the planet with the invasion army so that you can warn the planet that they're about to be invaded.

                                                  You don't need a navigator to get through the planet's core if you know the Force will guide you.
