- First time we watch a ship land on the ground

- Uncanny Valley of all-CGI scenes.
- Racism in TPM
- Nemoidians seem dubbed like in a kung fu film.

- Ahmed Best interview where he mentions that Michael Jackson wanted to be Jar Jar.

- Acker: (reading from his notes) "Jar Jar is pretty terrible."
- Blacker: For such a well-thought out universe, it's not a well-thought out universe!
- Blacker: My iPod, which is not an iPhone, it's like from 8–9 years ago, can hold so many songs, and it is leading the electronic army in my home.
