  First half of Return is awesome... Ewoks defeating the Empire, not so much....

  The space battle over Endor is amazing, even now in 2017. The final showdown with Vader, Luke, and the Emperor is my favorite part of Star Wars.

  Although I do concede that Empire is the best Star Wars movie from a subjective point of view, my favorite is Jedi. As a kid, I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that there were three separate battles happening simultaneously in the film's conclusion. The editing in this segment of the movie, along with the wrap up at the end of the trilogy, stands out to me the most. There is excellent closure on all of the characters and I just feel complete when watching all three films together. As is the case with the other two movies, the music is phenomenal (albeit with the lack of a memorable new theme), the acting is above par, and the visuals are superb. Each location creates a wonderful sense of adventure as well. George Lucas captured the minds of the film-goers in the late '70s and it all wrapped up nicely when it was all said and done.

The digital updating done to the original trilogy mostly doesn't bother me. I wish Lucas would have rather left them alone, but the changes that were made are usually minor. I feel this way about the first two movies, but for this one - oh boy. The added song in Jabba's lair does not fit the tone nor does it look good. Swapping Sebastian Shaw for Hayden Christensen just makes no sense. Why don't we see Ewan McGregor? Obi-Wan's force ghost stays the same age and Vader's gets to be young?

Say what you will about the Ewoks (I agree that it is highly unrealistic for these little creatures to defeat the Empire), the ground battle sequences are strong and are also among the only ground battles in the original trilogy. Most of the battles have been in the air to this point, so this is the first time we see Storm Troopers, you know, trooping. The ultimate scene that involved Luke and Vader on the soon-to-be-destroyed Death Star gives me chills every single time I watch this movie.

5/5
