First 1/2 hour at Jabba's palace & on his sail barge are excellent. Leia in the yellow bikini BBRRRRAAWWWRR! The Rankor was cool. Endor was great. I know Mitch will trash the cutsy-poo Ewoks, but I thought they were great. I was also about 10 when I saw this in theatres. I love Nieb-nub (Lando's sidekick) - My friends actually refer to him as Chico (because of his large sagging cheeks). The final 3-way battle (Endor, Deathstar #2 & Vader, Luke & The Emporor) Wow, what an ending. Finally, you have to love the very ending with the Yub-Yub Ewok song...by the way, Lucas cut the original song out of the new CGI updated version...THAT BASTARD! I loved that song!
Interesting..... Did you notice that the director of this movie isn't George Lucas? I saw this as I was fixing the movie entry. I couldn't believe it. I checked IMDB and Yahoo movies and yup, sure enough, Ol' George only produced this, not directed! Hmph. You learn something new every day!
An oh yeah, great flick!
I just checked epsiode 2. Wasn't directed by George either! What was he doing, counting his millions?
This movie was good but not NEARLY as good as the other two.
RUINED mainly by...ugh, EWOKS. I remember hating them while watching it, I remember hating them when they made spin-offs (Wicket's Adventures or something stupid like that) and I remember hating the Ewoks cartoon. DEATH TO EWOKS!
But the cycle race through the forest balances that off, the yin for the raging yang.
That and the whole "honour thy father" storyline which always gets me....
Mike, it isn't a "cycle race" it's a Speederbike race.....got it?
You mean to say they weren't pedalling those things?
Yeah, yeah, the Ewoks...whatever. It didn't ruin it for me and I like them anyways. Still a 4 star flick. The whole final battle scene...!!
One around the Death Star, one on Endor, and of course, Luke, Darth and the Emperor.
I was surprised when Jabba and Boba Fett were killed off right at the beginning (Boba Fett?! Boba Fett?!), but I guess it showed that they had bigger fish to fry.
I always thought Derek looked like the Rancor Keeper.
I'll Rancor your face!
I'm such a happy/proud father today.
There is always a debate about "if you are going to introduce your kids to Star Wars, do you start with episode IV, or Episode I ect etc". Well, I came home from work, plunked down on the sofa and turned on the tube and just so happened that ROTJ was on. Liam (aka The Boy), is now 18 months and speaking some words. He LOVED it. We were watching the Jabba scene at the beginning. Everytime he saw a ship or sail barge, he pointed and said "boat! BOAT!". Every time he saw Chewbacca he said "BEAR, BEAR!!". Each time he saw Jabba or pretty much any creature, he said "RIBBIP!!" (which is his way of saying "frog"). When there are lasers or explosions he says "BOOM!!" Very entertaining for me to re-watch now. He calls the Sarlak Pit "snakes" and the Rankor monster is "dragon"
I tought him "3PO", "R2" and "Yoda". He also loved the blue elephant looking piano player in Jabba's palace (max Rebo?). Now he's calling everything "Yoda". When Anat shut off the tube, he started screaming "AGAIN, AGAIN'. We went down and re-watch the Jabba scene on You-Tube after. AWESOME !!!
My next hope is that this can be our new movie to watch on the drive to Montreal so I don't have to listen to Dora the freakin' explorer any more.
PS. We didn't even get to the Ewoks yet, but I think he'll did those "little bears" too
Thats to funny, my 2 year old twins watched this movie to just yesterday, and loved it. Everything was WOW and ohhhh and pointing. and when darth vader was on screen they would scream. Would make there uncle proud!
Who? Uncle Matt or Unca MIKHAIL?
I'm proud that they are (they're) BOTH following the path to geekdom (it's in the blood)...
Not AS proud that their mom misused the right "their"...so THERE!
Alas, can't win'em all!
Both uncles I suppose but who had the sheets!. and the there-their point I am on my own for 2 weeks be kind.
Oh boy, now Unkie can start REALLY spoiling him with toys! Woo-hoo!
Don't forget the Millenium Falcon... The most expensive and prestigious toy back in the day..
MY GOD, IT'S A WHITE TAREK!
I still have my ORIGINAL Millenium Falcon toy (it rocks). It's the ship that made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs! She's fast enough for you, old man.
