20. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999)

The first movie in the Star Wars prequel trilogy left much to be desired for some fans. The film chronicled the early life of Anakin Skywalker, as well as the Jedi training of a young Obi-Wan Kenobi courtesy of Qui-Gon Jinn. However, it’s everything in between that makes this a tough motion picture to follow. From out-of-place political themes, to its overly complicated plot concerning the Galactic Senate and trade embargoes, The Phantom Menace is unfathomable to most viewers. Even director George Lucas labeled it “disjointed” in 2017.
