Oh goodness gracious, I actually wrote it. In the headline even. I must be insane. Defend Jar Jar Binks of Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace, nearly inarguably the most hated film character in the past 10 years…perhaps in the entire history of moviemaking? In public?!
But I am here to set the record straight for the poor schlub. As an ardent Star Wars fan, I feel it’s my duty. I have recently seen the light and feel compelled to clear poor Jar Jar’s name.
