Phantom Menace Syndrome

The Star Wars prequels were a disappointment.  This is very old news.  But like any trauma, sometimes  it is therapeutic to revisit the wounds, think about where things went wrong, and imagine an alternate universe were thing went right.

Today I saw this video, about pre-production for The Phantom Menace.  What is remarkable is that in it, they show George Lucas auditioning 3 kids for Anakin.  The second one is clearly amazing, and Jake Lloyd is clearly illiterate.  And yet... and yet... and yet!!!!  

Fast forward to the 2:00 mark to see the auditions.

The Amazing Spider-Man on iOS drops to $0.99

The price just dropped for the iPad video game adaptation of The Amazing Spider-Man, so get it while you can!  While the controls are simplistic compared to the watershed X-Box version of Spider-Man 2, the graphics are gorgeous, and the game mechanics succeed in making you feel like you're the wall crawler.  Sure, the logic patrol will cite that, like the 90's Activision game, you can once again anchor webs on the sky, but if you're looking for a five-minute break to do some fun webswinging, this game can't be beat.
