Movie Review

Now that’s a proper movie poster!!

Now I could be cool and say that I first watched this movie because I had a crush on Han Solo or I could say I needed to know how Luke Skywalker was going to save us all from the evil Darth Vader, but no, I was 11 years old. I went because my mum took me and I had seen the Ewoks in an advert and they were, to use my words SOOOOOOOOOO CUTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

When I found out that R2D2 had a man inside there it genuinely rocked my world. I thought I had been lied to, it was like Father Christmas all over again. Luckily they can’t dress people up as Ewoks though; Ewoks are real .

The third part in a truly epic trilogy. In a galaxy far, far away the end has finally come. Will they save Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba the Hut? Will Luke ever become a Jedi now he knows who is father is? Will Leia ever get away from the ‘walking carpet’, and will R2D2 reach his full potential, or will C3P0 always be holding him back?

This time round the movie answers all these questions and does a great job.  We get to see the infamous Emperor and he comes with royal guards and an awesome new trick using the power of the dark side.

We meet the reason Han Solo needed to get away from the woman he loves, Jabba the Hut, and catch up with those from Luke’s home planet… the best Tatooine lines are on the Barge… oh, Barge Banter!

“I used to live here, you know,” Luke says to Han.

“You’re gonna die here, you know.”

Truth be told Lego isn’t very flattering for Princess Leia, but R2D2 is looking AWESOME!!!

Verdict

As far as an end to a trilogy goes this one is complete.  The good guys win, the bad guys lose, and cute and furry creatures help R2D2 escape C3P0 if even for a little while.

Best Spaceship EVER!!!! There’s not a kid out there who doesn’t want this ‘hunk of junk’.

In the remastered edition is the only place George Lucas messes up. He changes the fat white guy we have always known as Darth Vader to the young stupid-looking face of Hayden Christensen and the Ewok music to some arty farty tune, with no nub nubs in it!!! Be ashamed George!!!

Saddest part of any movie, ever!

Let’s hope the next three can help us forget the sins of the first (most recent) trilogy, but as far as the middle three go… pure Science Fiction movie magic. Thanks for that Mr. Lucas, I even owned the sticker book.

These stickers alone made this the most expensive movie my mother ever took me to see. Thanks mummy xx
