Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace

It feels like a long, long time ago, especially if you were a kid when it hit theaters. Nearly eighteen years and a worldwide web of dogpiling later we review how well George Lucas' first entry into the Star Wars Prequels holds up. Is it the best of its trilogy? Does it have any redeeming qualities? What are the lasting effects on a generation of disappointed fandom? Is there a silver lining we can take with us as we appreciate the Star Wars universe as a whole, or just a lingering Phantom Menace we would rather have cut out of our beloved franchise?
