      Spoiler:
    Star Wars was shit. No explanation as to who snoke is/was, the entire gambling planet sideplot could have been left out etc etc. Hamill's acting was atrocious.

    What's wrong with pod races?
    The export grade bait.
    Did it blow up in your face?

    To be fair so much of Episode 1 was dreadful that the pod racing being garbage might even qualify it as one of the better sections.

    The whole thing kicks off with a Jar Jar fart joke, admirably foreshadowing the coming excrement. That the pod racing section contains Jar Jar pretty much makes it garbage by definition.

    Fundamentally however there was no dramatic tension because we'd only just met Anakin and didn't give a shit about him and we knew even less about the enemy guy he was racing and gave no fucks about him either. Anakin was, in fact, a fucking annoying kid played by a lackluster actor so the only hook for the viewer was hoping that he died. Which he obviously wouldn't. Alas.

    Anakin was a slave so it made no sense that he built/owned the equivalent of a high end rally car. And if he did build it, why wouldn't he put the handlebars where he could reach them?

    The start of the race, where Anakin's pod didn't start, demonstrated that his pod was hugely faster than the other pods (he sits on the start line for thirty seconds then catches up with the other pods in less than thirty seconds so he's more than twice as fast as them.) So it makes no sense that once he catches up he can't just blow past the other pods when the terrain permits.

    The entire pod race was ripped off from the chariot race in Ben Hur where it was done with actual people in actual danger rather than a retarded CGI shitfest. The characters had also been established throughout the movie with reasonably understandable motivations.

    So you're left with something that's analogous to watching two people you don't really like play a tedious racing video game for, what, ten minutes?

    Oh, and it was the beginning of the 'romance' between Natalie Portman age 16, passing for 18, and Jake Lloyd age 10, passing for about 7. Which is off the charts creepy.
    You just need to serve the podracing with some eurobeat :3

    Watching Escape Plan (2013) atm.

    Good little Stallone flick

    "Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less than the men of whom they know nothing at all" - good little quote from it
    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    Why have a quality original game with a worldly soundtrack when you can have a sepia toned memory of a 7/10 ok game made about a shit part of an even worse film?
