Silver Linings Playback 1 – Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace


All bad films have a silver lining.

At least, that’s the theory Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are hoping to prove in this new podcast. Murphy and McIntyre are revisiting maligned films and seeing what good they can find in them.

In their first episode, in honor of May the 4th, they are rewatching the first of George Lucas’ prequel films, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Andy maintains that it is somewhat unfairly disliked by Star Wars fans. Joel isn’t so sure. But together, they will find the film’s silver lining.
