I've been reading alot of the fanedit forum's chat about proposed changes to ROTJ, dissatisfaction with the film and about the prequels being better. Here is the critical reaction pasted from Wikipedia...
|Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope||94% (67 reviews)||91 (13 reviews)|
|Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back||97% (71 reviews)||78 (15 reviews)|
|Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi||79% (66 reviews)||52 (14 reviews)|
|Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace||57% (186 reviews)||51 (36 reviews)|
|Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones||67% (218 reviews)||53 (39 reviews)|
|Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith||80% (253 reviews)||68 (40 reviews)|
|Star Wars: The Clone Wars||19% (153 reviews)||35 (30 reviews)[98|
I guess I'm in the minority but by the slimest of margins I rate ROTJ as superior to ESB and the notion that ROTJ is inferior to the visual abortions that are the theatrical cuts of the PT seems like mass insanity.
I can't think of any moments in ESB or ANH that have me grinning like a kid again as some of the sequences in ROTJ. I know on paper ESB is technicaly a better film but the tingles down my spine, wide eyed joy and warm fuzzy feeling elicited by ROTJ tell me different.
So I wanna hear from you ROTJ haters as to why you do hate it and I also wanna hear from those like me who love it. Importantly I wanna hear why you love it because honestly I'm not 100% sure why I love it so much! I also wanna hear from other fan editors planning revisions to ROTJ why they feel so strongly that it needs changing.
Let the debate begin!
