I must confess I was not a fan of the previous Star Wars movies. And as a result I had no interest in purchasing The Phantom Menace. Things changed when a friend brough it over. I really enjoyed the movie with the exception of the over the top antics of Jar Jar Binks. Absent that I couldn't find a flaw in the movie. The extras are great and I believe it to be one of the best DVD packages overall.
