Like learning the truth about Santa Claus, or where babies come from (pelican sweatshops, duh), finding out what went on behind the scenes of famous movies can sometimes be gruesome. For instance, it turns out there weren't any giant monsters on the set of Pacific Rim, and Tom Cruise died a total of zero times during the making of Edge Of Tomorrow.
But then, every once in a while, you run across a "making of" document that actually surpasses their subject matter -- in hilarity, if nothing else.
6The Phantom Menace's Behind-The-Scenes Documentary Is A Car Crash In Slow Motion
You might think that the Star Wars prequels didn't have anything to offer the world other than a tidal wave of nerd rage and enough crappy plastic merchandise to choke the sarlacc. Well, you'd be wrong. An amazing movie did come out of prequels: the behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of The Phantom Menace called The Beginning (because George Lucas Ejaculates All Over His Own Legacy wouldn't look great on a DVD cover).
The hour-long doc opens with Lucas outlining for his team just how many shots will be "real" and how many "not real" -- i.e., the ugly-ass 1990s CGI that had begun infecting Star Wars like an unconvincing STD. The crew either aren't thrilled with the direction the movie's heading, or they all keep silently farting, hoping no one will notice.
"Our collective dignity ... not so real."
