Prequel Trilogy,  The Phantom Menace

Variety falsely claims that The Phantom Menace ‘was ravaged by critics’


From Variety:

““Star Wars” flew back into theaters in 1999 with the start of the prequel series, which was… less well received, to say the least. The first in that series, “The Phantom Menace,” was ravaged by critics and fans even as it made big money at the box office.”

The truth:

In 2005, Rotten Tomatoes calculated that 62% of critics had given The Phantom Menace a positive review.
