    • 5/10 - It's okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to watch.
    • 4/10 - Meh. There's plenty of better alternatives to this.

    • 2/10 - Pretty crappy.

I even like the Ewoks...

...but the Speeder-Bike Chase takes the cake.

I imagine most are already aware but I always like to bring up the fact that David Lynch was George's first pick to direct ROTJ.

Now imagine Han marveling over the trees of Endor for about 15 minutes while shlupping a damn good cup of hot coffee....

I stand by the comment I made for the last one, the bridge movie, that despite what nerds claim isn't the best.  This one along with the original are really what carried the trilogy best.  Total 9/10, it's not perfect, but damn it is close for the whole space opera/scifi genre for sure.  So much going on, but so well wrapped up right to the end.  It gets the so much tied up bit by bit to the end, a nice twist if there ever as towards the end if you're new to it that's awesome.

Oof, I think this film is basically PERFECT...


...RIGHT up until they blow up Jabba's Sandbarge.

After that the movie loses a bunch of pacing, and like basically everyone other than Luke have very little to actually do in this movie. Harrison Ford is phoning in the Han Solo HARD in this movie, he might as well not be in it. This movie basically has no second act, it's just Jabba, NOTHING, then Luke and Vader fight, the end.

Also Vader's redemption is absolute bullshit, like he gets his ass kicked and throws the Emperor down a well? All's forgiven? Nah, not buying it.

As far as I'm concerned this is the SIXTH best Star Wars Movie, but it is at least considerably better than any of the prequels, so I'll give it that!
