    You think this ends once the movie's out? Haven't you heard? Disney plans to keep releasing these movies forever.

    I'm rewatching the prequels instead. I'd forgotten just how overloaded the dialogue is with callbacks to the original movies. Literally every couple minutes someone awkwardly apes a line, sometimes two.

    What does that remind me of, I wonder?

    Oh, yeah, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness.

    Maybe you guys were aware of this, so you were able to enjoy ROTJ more than I was. But I have just been informed that by blowing up the A New Hope Plot Device Redux the Rebels committed Ewok genocide. All the Ewoks, and every other living thing on Endor, would have been dead in less than a week. Ewok holocaust.

    Sometimes these fantasy movies really do have a happy ending.

    This is basically the plot device that anchors Neal Stephenson's recent novel Seveneves.

    Awesome. I've always hated the Ewoks so I'm glad to know they're all dead.

    They hadn't even hit the bronze age yet. No big loss.

    The Vader/Luke fight is fantastic*. The Lando space attack is fantastic. Everything that happens on the forest moon is garbage.


    EDIT - * I'm going to rewatch it tonight, but it might be the best sword fight of all time. Certainly up there with Robin Hood, Samurai 3, Rob Roy, etc.

    Best sword fight of all time is from Princess Bride, but it's certainly up there.

    ROTJ is many ways is the most "fun" of the OT. I enjoyed watching them rescue Han and even Endor has a lot of good things going on. Speeder bike chase anyone?

    Yup. Empire is the "best" of the star wars movies, but ROTJ is the most fun.
