Topic: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

Of all the Star Wars movies, which one is your absolute favorite? I know it is a tought decision; they are all so good... For me, I switch between RotJ and ESB. Both are excelent films. (Of course, all the Star Wars movies are.) I think right now my favorite is ESB. So, what about you?

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

If only ROTJ didn't have those damned Ewoks.... TESB would have to be my faviourite... Revenge of the Sith was pretty cool tho...

Yeah, I agree... Those Ewoks are pretty annoying. I wish George had of gone with his first idea and used Wookies.

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

Empire Strikes Back.  It was darker, the stakes were more real, there was a grit to it that made you feel every moment. Jedi's ewoks were not the only downfall, I thought the pacing of that film was jerky and the characters 'off'.  I know they'd developed between the movies, but somehow it just didn't click.

Also:  this may sound crazy, like you're watching Clerks:  but they make a convincing argument. The battlestation was very incomplete. I find it odd that it was so heavily staffed with capable armaments and in house operational weapons. I could see if you had a fleet or two stationed around and on the planet , but Randall was right in indicating mostly carpenters, builders, engineers would be aboard.

Also, given the Emperor's penchant for wiping out races, I doubt they'd have let the Ewoks live while they built the battlestation above the planet. I could really see them wiping out all existing life if only for internal security purposes.

But, Palpatine said, "It was I who allowed the alliance to learn the location of the sheild generator something something friends something are walking into a trap." So, that's why they had so many fighters, ships, guns, whatever.

As for my favorite episode, hmmm.... That is a tough one. I know ANH, and AOTC are lower on the list than the others with TPM on top of those two. So ROTS, ESB, and ROTJ are my favorites. It just depends on my mood. "I could no sooner chose a favorite star among the heavens." -ever after (I think?)

Good point, Miba! I'd forgotten about the old man's hubris and machinations.
This means only one thing:  Time for a movie marathon to refresh my memories.

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

It'd be ROTJ for me, I thought it great to finally see Luke handing the lighsabre with serious skill (mind you compared to the new movies it seems a little slow).

Maybe I'm giving George and Lawrence Kasdan a little too much writing credit, but having the Imps leave the ewoks alone showed how arrogant they really were thinking they were superior with all their weapons and technology, and in the end they were brought down with bows and arrows and sharpened sticks.

What I would have liked to see is Episode 7 starting right where Ep.6 left off... Death Star II has been blown up and huge burning chunks of radioactive metal are pounding into the planet surface below....the Ewoks who survive are turned into radioactive mutant killing machines and the new enemy of the new republic smile

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

I have never seen this, and I know thatif I did I would hate it, but the Star Wars Holiday Special (dodges rotten tomatoes).  I also think Fetts armor was, for lack of a better word, "cool".

take it easy baby take it as it comes

I watched the first 5 minutes of the Star Wars Holiday Special, (on Blue Harvest) and it was so boring I closed the window. I may have to try enduring the whole thing some time, maby in summer when I have a lot of free time...

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

Yes, it is boring, that's why it's so funny.  (I would skip ahead to the Boba Fett cartoon, about 45 minutes into it.  That's part's actually good.)

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

The Holiday Special is awful. I spent two hours downloading it (on dialup) to watch it, and it was a waste of time, except that now I can say I've seen it. And, yes, deffinately watch the Boba cartoon! That's the best part.

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

I would say Empire I like seeing Luke getting his hand chopped off,Han getting frozen in carbonite,and Vader telling Luke he was his father.

Re: What is your favorite of the Star Wars films?

rotj, or the empire strikes back
I could watch Han Solo get frozen in carbonite for hours and never get bored
And rotj because of the last sequence between sidious, vader and luke

I'll abdicate at the drop of a hat
