You must have seen a different movie than the one I saw. Look at his
facial expression when his pod malfunctioned. Compare that with that
when he was in the Naboo fighter. Frankly, his play-by-play monologue
got damn irritating with each line. In fact, it doesn't make sense to
say something like "Oh yeah, let me try spinning, that sounds like a
cool trick" when you've got Droid Fighters coming at you from virtually
every direction - when you talk you lose your concentrating, no matter
how strong the Force is with you.

You can end up dead quicker if you are carrying on a conversation with
a droid instead of paying attention to flying.

Isn't it weird how the Battle Droids did not start shooting at Anakin's
Naboo Fighter until his shield system came back on... hehehe.
