I saw Return of the Jedi in the theater when it first came out.

Even at the tender age of 6 I knew it was crap. Fucking ewoks? Really? Choke on 6 miles of dick, George Lucas.

Dunno if this is true, but the original plot called for a planet of wookies, but it got spielberged.

Yes. They were supposed to be on Kashyyyk and not Endor.

Are you saying that Johnny Cochran's Chewbacca Defense wouldn't really work???

I read somewhere that F. Lee Bailey wanted to use the Ewok Defense.  His words were, and I quote, "It would be much more Wicket!"

Alty, you know what I can't wait for?

the day that they decide to REMAKE the originals.

You think Star Wars is immune to a series reboot? It would be an awful idea, but after Lucas kicks it, I bet our grandkids will watch a new A New Hope in theaters.

Justin Bieber as Luke Skywalker.

I called it first.

No, Justin Bieber as Han Solo.

And he'll always shoot second.

And then The Force Awakens happened.

Luckily, TFA was a good movie.

But it was still a reboot.

Which is fine IMO, because The Last Jedi was very much not a reboot and it made a bunch of wieners really, really mad. This is made even better by the fact that it was actually excellent.

Currently 46% audience approval on Rotten Tomatoes vs 91% critical approval. A huge chunk of that is review-bombing by trolls, but still. Watching the total failure of some people to tolerate a deconstruction of their cultivated identity has been a joy.

TFA was meh.

TLJ was actually good, though fuck me if it took some time to get there.  The showdown between Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker was worth the price of admission.

Also worthwhile was the moment that Yoda mindfucks Luke (and the audience) by burning down the sacred tree they kept the Jedi books in, knowing, I presume, that they had already been stolen.

Personally I think it would have been cooler if the books had been burned too. I take my iconoclasm seriously.

No doubt, TLJ’s biggest sin is its pacing, which kind of sucks.

I am constantly flabbergasted by people who think Luke’s character was mishandled or done a disservice by the film, though. What they did was so much better than anything I’d have come up with.
