Daniel Geer from PopcornMonster.com sends us his blog entry that looks back at his top 10 memories from 1999 as he (along with millions of fellow Star Wars fans) anxiously awaited the premiere of The Phantom Menace.
See the intro below:
"A Long Time Ago, in a theater not so far away…
…a certain movie was finally being released that had been anticipated for 16 years. It was the most anticiipated film of all time. Yes, of course I’m referring to Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. May 19, 2009 marks the 10th Anniversary!
I think we all can agree that the anticipation leading up to the film’s release was one of the most memorable times in movie history, and the most fun. So, in honor of the 10th Anniversary of The Phantom Menace, I just wanted to list the top 10 greatest memories leading up to the film’s release. This is a combination of things I experienced as well as what fans experienced as a whole leading up to May 19, 1999."

Excellent article, Dan. I think you covered just about every memory fans had 10 years ago. Has it really been 10 whole years since TPM graced our cinemas? Man, how times flies.

They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
