Star Wars

A simple review...

 

Okay, let's be honest about Star Wars. In its time, it was great. Does it stand up to the test of time? No, not even close. Here's just a few reasons why:

 

Star Wars I - The Phantom Menace

Saving Grace - Bringing Ian McDiarmid back as the Emperor was excellent.

Star Wars II - The Clone Wars

Saving Grace - Jango Fett was cool while he lasted.

Star Wars III - The Revenge of the Sith

Saving Grace - It did have some nice stuff happening both storywise and the fight scenes.

 

 

 

Star Wars IV - A New Hope

Saving Grace - Aunt and Uncle's burned corpse actually shown

Star Wars V - The Empire Strikes Back

Saving Grace - Somehow still considered the best of the bunch

Star Wars VI - Return of the Jedi

Saving Grace - I know you expect the Princess Leia in her slave outfit; or maybe Admiral Ackbar's famous "it's a trap!" line, but no... It's the confirmation that not only was there previously an incestious kiss between Luke and Leia, but that they kinda knew at the time. Also, it's been pointed out that the Ewoks were eating the storm troopers at the big feast/festival. Pretty sure the good guys were chowing down with them...

 

 

 

Overall Review

I do love Star Wars, but it just doesn't hold up anywhere near as good as other movies. A lot of little things piss me off about these. They definitely could have done a better job writing the new movies to match the old movies. Oh well. Also, My ranking for the movies is something that will definitely not be agreed upon:

  1. Star Wars III - The Revenge of the Sith
  2. Star Wars V - The Empire Strikes Back
  3. Star Wars VI - Return of the Jedi
  4. Star Wars II - The Clone Wars
  5. Star Wars IV - A New Hope
  6. Star Wars I - The Phantom Menace
