The Return of the Jedi

   27 November 2005, early evening

I watched Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi this afternoon, killing time during a very uneventful Sunday afternoon. One of my brother’s friends had received the box set as a gift, and it has been sitting in our house for a half year or so. The poor boy got the full-screen box set. I can’t believe they even make full-screen DVDs. Return of the Jedi was as entertaining as I remembered it. The movie picks up with a Luke and his friends rescuing Han Solo from Jabba the Hut, and continues through to a daring assault on a new Death Star. There are some classic moments and lines in this film. It’s a shame Lucas didn’t let other people help him write the newer series of Star Wars movies. The confrontation between Luke, Vadar, and the Emperor is a very cool scene, as is the space fight at the end of the film. If there is one thing the newer films have going for them, it is that the space fights are even more crazy. Star Wars VI was a good conclusion to the original trilogy, Ewoks or not.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
