Flix for Short: The (Totally) Phantom Menace


Any Jedi or Sith Lord will tell you, proper lightsaber etiquette is almost more important than this whole “Force” business everyone keeps going on about. Why, without proper handling of one’s saber de lumière, you could cut someone’s hand right off! Youtuber FirstManOnTheSpoon sets out to tell us how to handle our lightsabers without harming yourself or others.

This seriously does reflect a lot of the issues with the lightsaber choreography in the prequels, which traded practicality and stakes for a lot of fast motion and jumping around in the hopes of looking “more epic.” Hell, anything’s epic set to “Duel of the Fates.” You could be having sex with your grandfather while it plays, and you’d have a wild, amazing ride.
