I agree on better late but opening night is still spot on. My anticipation is through the roof for Snoke. His voice sounds awesome and his line, "Even you have never faced such a test," is already legendary to me. I've watched that tv spot over fifty times.

I am going to tell those sitting next to me that I know not to look or even speak to me during the film. If I really want to see a film my eyes won't leave the screen until the credits roll.

I will make it there Sunday night so don't you worry. I am also seeing the first available showing in my theatre. You aren't.

Also "I am Star Wars." Prepare yourself for my Snoke and Kylo.

A New Hope....Even though, Empire is my favorite movie, it wouldn't have been nearly as impactful without, A New Hope. ANH is just as good as ESB when considering the character development and exposition.

Empire Strikes Back...,no explanation needed. It's a perfectly paced movie with three masterfully crafted acts.

Return of the Jedi...,If it weren't for the EWOKS, i might say that this is the best movie of the original franchise. It's the first time we get to see a well balanced, Luke whom is entirely in control of his emotions. The ewoks really hurt this installment for me and almost makes it as hard to watch as one of the, Prequels.

As for the prequels, i think they're all balls. Other than certain acting efforts and some choreography, there really is no redeeming aspect for them

Yah. The Ewoks, though kinda cute (I'll admit) are just atrocious from a plot standpoint. I'm sorry but we're to believe these little teddy bears are a legitimate threat to the GALACTIC EMPIRE......

sigh. Anyway, I feel the same way. ROTJ would be my favorite movie had it not been for them. Luke in his black outfit with the green light sabre made me a fan of his for all time (my favorite color is green). And ROTJ is still the best performance by Ian Mcdiarmid (the Emperor).

Yeah and the only reason we had Ewoks is because they couldn't afford to do a planet full of Wookies. If you watch, ROTJ and imagine a planet full of Wookies, its an entirely different movie. I've come to appreciate the ewoks, but i still can't help but feel that they're out of place with the tone of the movie.

Yah...Wookies trashing the Empire makes more sense.

Even as a child before i knew they were supposed to be, Wookies, i thought the Ewoks were lame. I mean, i've come to accept it, but it's always been the one stain on the original trilogy that i could never get over or accept. laughing out loud

Wookies would have been a lot cooler, but in some ways less realistic Imo. Think about it, Ewoks are going to go completely under the Empire's radar. However I'm pretty sure they'd notice a Planet (well Moon actually) full of Wookies and invade/enslave them first before building their Ultimate weapon there.

So the way it was done made it realistic that the Empire think the Rebels have nothing in terms of reinforcements or hope on that Moon and will get captured quickly, when in fact that wasn't the case.

Also Chewbacca had a lot of action with the Ewoks so that slightly made up for the original plan of Wookie action, and in fact he turned the tide of that fight when he took over the AT-ST. Apart from that the Ewoks main weapon was the element of surprise really for the above reasons.

Besides Ewoks being a more "kiddish" factor was a good balance to the Dark psychological stuff going on in the Death Star "Soon I'll be dead, and you with me", and let's not forget, this wasn't Empire, this was the end of the Saga, so was never intending to end on a grim note, and wanted lots of Light hearted themes going on as well.

Yeah, I agree. This is where Lucas started make his own sometimes incomprehensible thought constructions. Why not wookies? Just because Chewie can fly the Falcon, doesn't mean that wookies living a primitive life style are stupid or incapable of learning technology.

It's like saying a Masai from a primitive village in Kenia can't learn how to use a computer, just because they don't have computers in their village. Of course they can... silly reason by Lucas, if you ask me. Of course it should have been wookiees! They wouldn't have sold a toy less!

The PT tries to be a very complex story and it's done incredibly terrible.

Mistake no.1: trying to be complex with SW and not being able weave an intricate storyline
Mistake no.2: not making it work

Yup. I'm almost sad Lucas won't be involved in Star Wars anymore, because he does have the ability to come up with new ideas that are pretty damn impressive; he just sucks when it comes to the finer details.

Being surrounded by yes men wasn't helping him either.

Let's see my list would be

6) TPM - only a few good moments for me

5) AoTC - Better than TPM but a lot of wasted potential and chopping story telling

4) RoTJ - I might take some flak for this one but honestly after viewing it again as an adult it has glaring weaknesses. Ewoks anyone?

3) RoTS - I thought this movie was actually pretty decent. It had it's weaknesses for sure but overall I enjoyed this move. The action, visuals, music was top notch and acting for me was on the better side of the spectrum overall. Obi-Wan vs Anakin was a fantastic scene all around.

2) ANH - this gets the second place nod just because of nostalgia mostly. It kicked everything off and even viewing it as an adult I love watching this move.

1) ESB - I almost feel compelled to put this first just because of the Luke I am your father part. I don't think any Star Wars movie has anything that even remotely approaches that level of story telling.

I also want to add that I never thought the PT was as bad as other people made it out to be and the OT we generally only highlight the good moments while ignoring the bad parts.

^ Yeah and with the PT it's the opposite. People tend to highlight the bad parts and ignore the good moments.

There just tends to be, at times in those movies, more bad than good, which is why people focus on them.

Same with the good of the originals.

also, leave the Ewoks alone. Those adorable little bastards don't need any more flak.

Don't get me wrong I loved the Ewoks as a kid. I even watched their spin off movies. But now that I am an adult and can critically think better the Ewoks just don't make much sense.

I don't think they were ever supposed to make sense. That doesn't, or rather shouldn't, make them any less adorable.
