This Video on How Awful the Light Saber Battles in The Phantom Menace Are Will Ruin Star Wars for You

It's easy to pick on Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace because of Jar Jar. And well, everything else too. But you know what's always fun about Star Wars? The light saber battles! This video, however, hilariously points out how silly they look like on closer inspection.

There are waltz steps! Aim somewhere not even close to your enemy! And a whole lotta other hilarious pointers in lightsaber fights that can hardly be defined as fights anymore. I don't think I'll be able to watch any lightsaber battle without thinking of this video again.

To be fair, basic stage fight rules dictates all of this. But light sabers! Oooh. [YouTube via The Awesomer]
