Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back

 

Yub yub!

While Empire was even better than I remembered (and I remember it being very good indeed), it was disappointing to discover that Return of the Jedi is even worse than I remembered. What happened to all the drama and conflict? Everybody’s hugging! Technically, even Luke and Big Daddy hug at the end.

I think the DVDs are totally worth it, but then again I’m a total geek with surround sound speakers. But the attached documentary is unique in that it is willing to take the piss out of Lucas and come clean about some of the legends: Harrison Ford telling Lucas something like “George, you can write this shit but you sure can’t say it” and Lucas’ sole direction to his actors: “Faster and more intense.”

Yub yub!

  2. You should see the hole in the wall that occurred some moments after I discovered the Booger unspooling my Special Edition VHS of this one. Oh wait, we finally spackled.

    Are the DVDs worth the investment?
