Going back in time, Episode 1: The Phantom Menace was received with mixed reception. The film gave us many iconic additions to Star Wars canon, including Jedi councils, desert battles with cloaked figures wielding double-edged light sabers, pod races, and full-scale invasions into the peaceful planet of Naboo. Yet haters detested at the time and now people have grown a little more accepting of it. The same may not be said for the latest Star Wars film: The Last Jedi.
While it was exhilirating to see Mark Hamil reprise his role as the legendary Master Skywalker, and witness Carrie Fischer's best performance as General Organa, there was also a lot that was wrong with the film that stopped it from becoming great.
