maybe you are lying to be noticed / stand out?

Actually, I’m not lying to myself when I say that ROTJ is the best, in my opinion. ROTJ always affected my differently from the other two. Even thought ANH, and TESB are amazing movies, I have always leaned towards ROTJ even movie. I don’t know why. It’s always difficult to explain, and it’s frustrating knowing that I can’t see what other people see negatively about the film. Every negative thing that other fans have pointed out is something I don’t have a problem with: the second Death Star, the Ewoks, Boba Fett’s death, Yub Nub, etc. I always thought that the Death Star 2.0 looked more intimidating than the first, because of it’s “unfinished/distorted” look. I love the Ewoks. One of my favorite lessons in Star Wars is to never judge someone or something by size. They are the underdog, which is one of the many things I love about the OT. Boba Fett is cool, but I am not as big of a fan as other people. If I were to picked Empire over Jedi, it would betray everything I stand for when it comes to Star Wars. I made that comment to show that I am not afraid to stand out of what I see as a sort of “standard” in the Star Wars fan community.

However, I feel like I pressured by something, as if I have to know the difference between what is my favorite, and what is the best. ROTJ is my favorite, and I also want to consider it the best. “Best” and “favorite” are still based on opinion. If someone were to say that 2001: A Space Odyssey was the best film of all time, someone else will say that the best is something else (could be any movie). In other words: there-is-no-correct-or-incorrect-answer!
