Return of the Jedi
Must … resist … urge to … snark.
There was a point in my early 20s when I would take a dump on ROTJ, but the more Star Wars saturates the market, the more I appreciate Jedi. It certainly was a step down in quality from Empire, but there’s a lot about the film I really love. Star Wars is like ice cream, some folks like chocolate, some people like vanilla, some people are just happy to get ice cream…then there’s the crazy people who would eat crap on a cone and swear it’s awesome…
Personally, I can cut subpar fanfic churned out by committee more slack than a bad ending written by the original author; I expect better quality from him than them.
I do not expect better quality from him given that, in addition to a few amazing films, he also wrote and/or directed some real stinkers.
