I must admit, this is my favorite movie. George Lucas, who is a great idea guy is not the best writer on the planet or director for that matter. Lucas to his credit, brings in Irwin Kershner to direct and Lawrence Kasdan for the screenplay. Just like that we have the best movie in the series. Not only do we have plenty of action, we have a love story! Everyone's favorite smugler Han Solo is frozen alive, Luke and Vader exchange plesantries and Han's old buddy takes over the captains chair of the Milenium Falcon. New worlds, new creatures and new special effects. This movie certainly has it all and it's going to be a classic for eternity.
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
I remember the day this movie came out and with my brother and Aunt Kay we went to see the movie in suburban Chicago. Did it live up to the hype of the Empire Strikes Back. NO! But man, was it good. Finally we had some closure. Han lives, Jabba dies (along with Bib and Boba and many others), Yoda reveals another Jedi, the Empire goes down, Vader takes his mask off oh and by the way chucks the Emperor to his death and the EWOKS! I almost forget them, I probably should have. It was a great movie, with loads of action and fun and for most of us wanting more. It didn't happen until 1998. Enjoy some of my favorite images from the last true Star Wars movie.
