Star Wars venting

Things about me and Star Wars

- I saw Star Wars (A New Hope) in 1977, in the movies.

- I can recite every line from Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back and most of Return of the Jedi.

- I was once able to answer every question in The Jedi Master's Quiz Book.

- I own Splinter of the Mind's Eye by Alan Dean Foster (hardcover), All 3 of The Han Solo Adventures by Brian Daley, The Han Solo Trilogy by A.C. Crispin, All 3 of The Adventures of Lando Calrissian by L. Neil Smith, The Mandalorian Armor by K.W. Jeter, shall I go on?? The Star Wars Sketch Book, The Empire Strikes Back Sketch Book...

- The best Star Wars movie is The Empire Strikes Back.

- I bought tickets to Episode 1 a week in advance.

- I thought the first 2 prequel movies were just 'ok'. I have to say, I honestly found them to be disapointing. I hope the final prequel movie is good, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

- I hate Ewoks but I hate Jar Jar more.

- I have a very low opinion of Yoda. How can he not know who the Sith Lord is? I thought he was an all-powerful Jedi, the strongest one on the Jedi Council, and he can't tell who the bad guy is when he's standing in the same room with him? Lame. Plus, the whole, creaky old dude with a cane that can barely walk but then can suddenly jump all around like a pin-ball when he's fighting is just stupid.

- I think George Lucas should just leave the 1st 3 movies alone, or at least release the original version along with the enhanced versions.

- It totally pisses me off that he replaced The Emperor in Empire with the actor from Jedi and the prequels.

- Lucas should have left the old Anakin in at the end of Jedi, not replaced him with awful Hayden Christianson.

- If Lucas wanted to 'fix' the first 3 movies, why didn't he do something with the stop motion animation in Empire?

- It is totally lame the way Boba Fett gets eaten by The Sarlac in Return of the Jedi. Boba Fett would not go out that way.

- I kind of hoped that Luke was going to be a real bad ass Jedi Knight in 'Return of the Jedi' and was all psyched when he came into Jabba's lair and waved back those pig lookin' guys with The Force. Then I was totally pissed at how easily he got caught by Jabba. Plus, instead of fighting The Rancor Monster why didn't Luke just choke it with The Force? I worry about the next generation of Jedi with Luke as the sole trainer...

- Stormtroopers should have better aim and should never get defeated by annoying Ewoks.

- The first Death Star had a huge bug in it with that whole reactor shaft proton torpedo vulnerability. You'd think they would have fixed that for the 2nd Death Star...

- Darth Vader is my favorite character in Star Wars, followed by Han Solo.
