My buddy Godzilla has been
a symbol of the horrors of nuclear war
a campy Earth saving hero
a symbol for environmental protection
a mindless, lost and scared creature
a reminder of the atrocities of war
a threat that must be dealt with
a protector worthy of praise
a spotlight on a stodgy government
and much more!
He’s the best!

Even when he’s a giant fish-eating iguana?

Zilla doesn’t count.

Oh sure, now he doesn’t. Convenient retcon much?

Star Wars is a buffet, enjoy the stuff you want, and leave the rest. 😃

I want to agree wholeheartedly. If only someone would develop Kurtz’s ideas for ROTJ into a comic or animated film.

I want to see it developed into a fan film, like Vader Episode I.

So a low-budget production with amateur nobodies replacing Hamill, Fisher, Ford, etc.? Can’t say that’s my cup of tea.

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.

The author in question is an analogical composite of everyone involved in the production of the OT, not Lucas alone.
