I was 12 years old when The Phantom menace came out, and while there is probably consensus here the film sucked the duel always stuck out to me. From the choreography to the music, the introduction/visuals of Maul also contrasted to the peacefulness of Qui Gon. But moreover to the point, Do you believe the duel belongs among the pantheon of the classic fights (The Bespin duel, Vader vs. Old Ben), or do you think it was the duel that started the all flash over substance trend that the followup films would follow? What were your original memories from the duel?
“Always loved Vader’s wordless self sacrifice. Another shitty, clueless, revision like Greedo and young Anakin’s ghost. What a fucking shame.” -Simon Pegg.
