    Liam Neeson is a masterful actor - especially in this particuliar movie. The film wouldn't be the same with another actor.

    When Anakin won the pod race. If I must be honest, the pod race is my favorite sequence in the entire saga.

    If I thought about it I could probably come to a different scene, based on theme or something, but I'm going to go with the scene that had the biggest impact on me in the theater. I still remember it vividly. Because I was a kid when the OT was around, I really never expected anything more. So when TPM came around I was like, "Oh ____ they actually did it?" I was interested for sure. So I go to the theater with some friends, and I'm sitting there and, you know, opening fanfare into crawl and I was really getting excited, right? It got me up to this level of surreal anticipation/excitement. And that stayed level until...

    Qui-Gon ignited his lightsaber, which heightened my state of excitement in a positively Pavlovian manner and then, he plunged it into the blast door. Into the blast door! A lightsaber into the blast door! And the TF dude is like "This is impossible!" (a thought that I had shared due to "RPG lore" until I saw it) and then Qui-Gon started to turn the saber and the theme music was swelling and the door falling apart and I swear to you I was sitting in that seat thinking "I'm having a heart attack... oh man I think I'm having a heart attack..." I was shifting in my seat and was sure I was done.

    But of course I wasn't. I recovered, my heart went back to normal and everything was fine. But yeah, that is itself a great scene to me, plus it has such a strong memory attached to it, so that's my scene right there. Plus it was Qui-Gon so, you know? Elevated awesome by Liam Neeson.

    TPM started out pretty good, I have to agree on that. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan had a good relationship and were savage. Then we were introduced to the battle droids and the destroyers. It was an exciting opening, but then the movie continued... xD

    I really love the first 15 minutes of the film. Crawl, Consular Class Cruiser (love the design and colour), neimoudians, Battle Droids, Qui-Gon melting the door, Obi-Wan, "Sir! They've gone up the ventilation shaft!", Federation landing in Naboo, soundtrack, etc...pretty cool start.

    I love the scene towards the end where the doors in the hanger bay open up, the song "Duel of the Fates" starts blaring and standing there, all alone, is Darth Maul. Awesome scene!!! I remember getting goose bumps seeing it the first time and now, 20 years later (19.6 years later) it still resonates with me.

    I also love the scene where Padme is standing in the window staring out on Naboo. She looks alone and as if she is bearing the weight of the galaxy on her shoulders. That was another great scene.
