I'm off Star Wars until someone can justify the alarming lack of safety railings.  It sets a very bad example for kids.

mjbok: bark_atda_moon: The Rebels were under the impression that there was no imperial fleet near the Death Star.

Yep.  The fact that the fleet was there was a surprise.

The ewoks aren't so ridiculously cute when you realize that the stormtroopers they killed probably ended up as stew.

flynn80: Nabb1: Yeah, the Ewoks were pandering to the younger kids. I still put "Empire" on a pedestal, but I still love ROTJ in spite of its faults.

And that is how we ended up with Jar-Jar

Jar-jar made the Ewoks look like...farking Shaft

Nix Nightbird: Technically, Vader flips a toggle switch. The door Maul opens is an electronic palm-pad, IIRC. So I guess the Dark Side isn't good at subtle electronic manipulations, or maybe Maul just didn't know that technique and it was easier to use brute force and slam something into it. Vader, on the other hand, was only dealing with a flip-toggle; Not especially hard to manipulate.

Either way I thought that move was really cool.  He doesn't look at it, he just does it.

//Does anyone else "force-open" automatic sliding doors?

And for the record, I love Jedi.  I was 7 when it came out; I may have seen Empire in theaters but I KNOW I saw Jedi in a theater.  Repeatedly.  Hell, I had a cassette with the audio track all the way through the time on Tatooine. To this day I will sit there and unconsciously speak every damned line to the first thirty minutes or so (or whatever the time is, I forget).

\the tape, btw, was frickin' funny as hell when played on my little sister's Teddy Ruxpin doll

Everything in the throne room between Vader, Luke and the Emperor was gold. When Luke finally loses it and succumbs to the Dark Side, going after Vader it was epic. That and Anakin's funeral pyre was simply great cinema.

Who gets paid to write all this shiat that was already covered in forums like 15 years ago?

extroverted_suicide: Vader was completely f'ing with him. He was fighting him one handed most of the time. He could have sliced Luke in half at any point during that fight, but that wasn't why Vader was there.

Absolutely.  Think of an adult playing 1-1 with a youngish kid.  If they just destroy them it's not fun for the kid and they'll quit.

DubyaHater: I have never heard of "Return of the Jedi". I had to click on the link. I don't watch movies (or TV in general) so I couldn't give an opinion anyway. After reading that article, seems like I'm not missing much.

Thanks for the awesome contribution to this thread.
