ROTJ has always been a distant 3rd for me, but the Jabba’s palace scenes are some of the best in the entire trilogy and the Emperor-Luke-Vader scenes are fucking great. 

All of that applies only pre-Special Edition.  Lucas fucked up the Jabba shit pretty bad with his cartoon band.  Fucking idiot.

All of this.

And shout out to Mark Hamill for the greatness of the Luke-Vader-Emperor scenes... that's among the best acting in all of Star Wars.  Ian McDirmad is great hamming it up as the Emperor, but Hamill carries the emotional weight of those scenes and does a fantastic job.

And yeah - the fucking SE with that stupid cartoon band was fucking horrible.  ORIGINAL MAX REBO BAND FOREVA!!!

I don't mind that they replaced Yub Yub since it was a goofball song that ripped off the Sesame Street theme, but I wish Williams had come up with something better than a David Attenborough backing track

I hate that those special editions are what are on Disney+. Even my kids don’t like them. I have the Despecialized editions for when we want to watch the OT.

Ewoks defeated the Empire.  Ewoks.

 

Mulletpelini is furiously masturbating at the thought.

Nope. 

First off Rogue 1 is too low...it's easily up with the Top 2.  RoTJ is more in line with TFA and TLJ(yes, I'm still the one that likes that movie and doesn't think it's a steam pile of shit), Solo is a little lower, Revenge of the Sith is right around Solo, than the first 2 prequels.

Just stop.  That's a really bad take.  Sith isn't that far below TLJ, but no, none of them are above TLJ.  Ya'll really have to stop this shit with that movie.  It was not nearly the shit show ya'll keep crying about.

 

 

I’d take PM over TLJ any day, at this point. JarJar isn’t much worse than the combo of Rose and the horse rabbits, and I really didn’t care about any of the characters by the end of TLJ. 
 

RotJ was great. R1 was really good too, has a completely different feel to it (honestly could be non Star Wars movie if you call the BFG something besides Death Star), and I could definitely see that being someone’s cup of tea more than any of the other movies.

Spoiler

hearing Rey is Palpatine Gdaughter and she converts Kylo to good then they battle Palpatine kill him then story ends with her claiming Skywalker status.  Seems about right.

overheard from a millennial.

why would anyone believe he's dead this time? They should just keep bringing him back like Moriarity in Sherlock Holmes. turn PALPATINE'S BEHIND IT ALL into the entire point of the saga.

Well if Darth Maul could survive being halved, Palpatine could survive a little fall.

yes and what a great piece of storytelling that was-

it's a fucking miracle Order 66 worked if cutting someone in half and throwing the pieces down a well isn't enough to kill them

no one's ever really gone!

The nerd sites are all abuzz today that the leaks have been confirmed as accurate.  If true, Drew is really going to love it because it sounds completely fucking awful.

I am seeing the opposite on r/StarWarsLeaks, since Colin Trevorrow said the that the leak about the stuff included in his version of the screenplay was all false. Because of that, people are now wondering if anything from the MSW leaks is true at all.

Of course I've seen them, and they do NOT look awful. You guys are so full of yourselves that you can't enjoy anything anymore.

I read the synopsis of the script and didn’t mind it. It’s about as good as you could do with the broken pieces that are left. I’m ready for all these characters to be gone for good. They are an albatross on anything new.

Sad but true. Although I’d still be down for a good Vader movie. Maybe like an anti-007 where the Emperor keeps sending him on missions of death and destruction.

They could have done something cool with Fin or Poe. Fin in particular could’ve had a bad ass backstory but instead all we got was that he was captured at a young age and was a fucking janitor on Starkiller base.

Both of those characters could be killed in the opening scene of the movie and it wouldn’t make any difference in whatever story it is they’re trying to tell in these movies.

Looking at Star Wars toys for my 7 year-old.  Star Wars licensing could be ridiculous, but wow.

Barbie Star Wars Darth Vader Doll.  It's $100, but it's real

You know what this is?  This is a bunch of left over Baroness dolls from one of the recent G. I. Joe movies, with a new outfit.   

Or it was created for the Japanese market and somehow wound up on our Amazon.com.

That's like one of those "Sexy Darth Vader" costumes they sell around Halloween. 

The 13 year-old version of me would have stolen that from my sister's room within minutes if she had ever received such a thing as a gift.

They're trying to tell a story?  This movie coming out is supposed to wrap up a trilogy and I couldn't even tell you what conflicts need resolution.

Oh I don't know, how about the First Order and Kylo Ren...they need to be wrapped up. Jesus.

Why?  Just because they’re kind of around and doing... uh... things, I guess?  
 

The mere existence of characters is not a narrative conflict.

do you know whether that gambler on kantu bight won big?  

 

do you know whether leia poppins gets the kids to take their medicine?

 

do you know whether benecio del toro solves his verbal tic?

 

do you know whether those ice foxes found food on the salt planet?

 

there is a lot still left to resolve.

Even the stars of STAR WARS: The Last Jedi weren't really on board with the direction it took.

John Boyega, who plays Finn, had this to say: "The Force Awakens I think was the beginning of something quite solid, The Last Jedi if I'm being honest I'd say that was feeling a bit iffy for me. I didn't necessarily agree with a lot of the choices in that and that's something that I spoke to Mark [Hamill] a lot about and we had conversations about it. And it was hard for all of us, because we were separated."

 

I got a bad feeling about 9

They aren't separated in 9 which was part of his point. He was happy to get to be with Rey and Poe in this one.

Yeah, I'm sure if he had his choice, he wouldn't have been going off on a side adventure with Rose and would've done something with Poe in the last movie. You're not going to see me defending the Canto Bight shitfest.

dont want to beat the dead horse of good movie bad movie, but I wish they would have gone deeper into the internal conflict of Finn having second thoughts of being a storm trooper. And then dying to redeem himself to save the rebellion at the end

If Finn had been allowed to sacrifice himself at the end of TLJ, it would have redeemed a lot of that movie.

Yeah I just read a supposed leak of the films main points and if it’s true, Disney is going to piss off a lot more people than they did with TLJ.

Or will be the most confusing bumblefuck movie in the entire series, which would be a fitting follow up to TLJ.

No teen Yoda in any "scripts" i have seen.

A lot of jumping from planet to planet and scene to scene. 

 

I've got a baaaad feeling about this... Hopefully its inter-web misinformation and diversion from what really is in the movie.  HOPEFULLY

Use spoiler tags obviously if you're talking spoilers. Some of us can contain ourselves enough to wait 9 days.

It’s a good thing they didn’t waste any time in the last movie with a shitload of pointless dead-end B-plots.
