It was recently brought to my attention that there are multiple ways in which one can watch the Star Wars movies. One that struck me as very interesting is the proposed “machete order“, which completely eliminates “Phantom Menace” from the play list. The author points out, (correctly, in my opinion) that Episode 1 does not actually contribute anything to the overall story arc of the Star Wars saga, and thus it can (and should) be removed from Star Wars Marathon order.
The entire analysis is interesting, so I encourage you to read it.
Have a good Thursday.
