I always liked Return of the Jedi

Wraith 8 03-22-2003 03:51 PM

well these kinda threads have been done before... but ill play along :p

first of all... i think as a real star wars fan you shouldnt choose.... would you choose favorites among your childeren? :D :p

if i have to chose. Return of the jedi.
because of the space battle and the duel.

Snafu7 03-22-2003 03:59 PM

I'm a Star Wars fan, but I'm not so obsessed that I can't pick which one I like the best

Wraith 8 03-22-2003 04:04 PM

well i must say that all movies have a quality that makes them equally fun to watch

Snafu7 03-22-2003 07:26 PM

That's true

Clemme w/Stick 03-22-2003 07:31 PM

I'd have to say ESB!

Its always a hard choice between ESB and RotJ..!


Katarn07 03-22-2003 08:01 PM

I said it before, I'll say it once more.....


Snafu7 03-22-2003 09:13 PM

ANH is pretty good, I never really like ESB muc though

Taos 03-22-2003 09:16 PM

My favorite is ESB!!! :D

leXX 03-22-2003 09:25 PM

I have a feeling I'm gonna see plenty of these threads...

Ah well.

My favourite is ESB, but only just. I love them ALL.

Taos 03-22-2003 09:30 PM had better get used to them! :p

Why aren't you in bed btw? It has to be late there! :)

leXX 03-22-2003 09:34 PM

I've been feeling like crap all day so I had a nap this afternoon, and now of course I can't sleep. I have a feeling I'm gonna be up pretty late again tonight.

I can tell you what will win. ESB. ANH will only have one vote, by me, and RotJ will trail ESB by a few votes... I too, love them all, but ANH has that nostalgia, even though I saw ESB a month later... :D

Rogue15 03-23-2003 12:51 AM

esb. Star Destroyers, Ground Assault, Vader choking the heck out of people, Cloud City, Boba Fett, dramatic saber duel, NEED I SAY MORE?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!

Lynk Former 03-23-2003 04:26 AM

Out of the FULLY original movies I like Return of the Jedi. Out of the Special Editions I like The Empire Strikes Back

Darklighter 03-23-2003 11:24 AM

Can't choose at all. My favourite out of the original 3 films changes periodically, depending on which one I'm in the mood to watch. ANH is more of an introductory story, ESB being the funniest and a good link between the beginning and end, and ROTJ the most action packed and climactic.

I don't see them as seperate films. Just one big one that takes a whopping 9 hours to watch:xp:hehe

Snafu7 03-23-2003 11:35 AM

out of the special editions, my fav. would be ESB.

dark jedi 8 03-23-2003 02:22 PM

ROTJ, the SE would have been better if GL would have included the B-wing scenes. but i like the other two almost as equally as ROTJ.

ESB has by far the best story. and of course the Imperial March!

and ANH was a very good introductory film! a really love the whole Mos Eisely part.:D

ckcsaber 03-23-2003 05:14 PM

Return of the Jedi is my favorite, but that doesn't say much since I love them all.

Return of The Jedi is basically my favorite because of the Luke and Vader duel. It is one of the most emotional scenes out of all of the Star Wars films, and the saber fighting is just awesome. It is my favorite saber fight by far. The OT duels went by too fast IMO.

Also, the Battle of Endor was flat out fantastic. I'm truly amazed Lucas was able to pull off something so dificult back then.

Snafu7 03-23-2003 08:07 PM

Um ckcsaber, just a question, are you from the area around northfield and faraboult Minnesota?

Sivy 03-23-2003 08:22 PM

for me they're all pretty equal, maybe i like ESB alittle more for the duel

ckcsaber 03-24-2003 06:49 PM

:confused: No way. Never been to Minnesota all my life. I'm currently living down in Virginia.

Why do you ask??

Snafu7 03-24-2003 07:35 PM

just the RIP freddie thing, kid in Faraboult named freddie was in a gang fight and got killed so now a bunch of ppl have RIP freddie on the cars and stuff

leXX 03-25-2003 05:49 AM

He is reffering to Freddie Mercury of Queen fame.

ckcsaber 03-25-2003 07:26 AM

Good Jobe leXX:D

Yup, my title is regarding to Freddie Mercury, who was the lead singer of Queen. He was a great singer, and sadly died of Aids in 91'.

[RAA]-=Chi3f=- 03-28-2003 04:29 PM

When I was litle it was ROTJ because of the Ewoks.

Now I'd have to say ESB.

Bob Gnarly 03-28-2003 04:32 PM

ROTJ all the way!

that was funny, and i loved the speeder bikes

SE_Vader_536 03-28-2003 10:20 PM

who wouldnt like rotj i mean who wouldnt like watching ewoks beat the crap out of stormtroopers with rocks! and the emotional tension was great too.

StarCords 03-29-2003 11:42 AM

All I know is that AOTC comes first and I can't pick between the others, so I did eeny meeny minie moe. I came up with ESB.

SE_Vader_536 03-29-2003 10:32 PM

thats one way to do it...

vegietto 04-13-2003 10:10 AM

The Empire Striked Back because the Empire kicked some serious ass but i do like Return of the Jedi but i like the Empire Striked Back better.

Jedi Skywalker 04-13-2003 10:17 AM

Hard to make a choice, they're all good but ROTJ is the best. I like all the battles!!:cool:

Tesla 04-13-2003 11:39 AM

Mine has to be ANH but i like all the star wars movies so much ;)

StormHammer 04-16-2003 02:09 PM

ESB is definitely my favourite. It seemed a lot stronger in terms of plot, battles, pace, locations and performance, in my view.

Of course, I still immensely enjoy the other two in the classic trilogy. :)

joesdomain 04-21-2003 11:27 PM

Return of the Jedi is my favorite. Jabba's Palace, Saralacc Pitt, the death of Yoda, Battle of Endor in space and on the planet. Plus, seeing death star II explode. What else can you say?

Sam Fisher 05-19-2003 10:38 AM

I don't know why, but I like ESB.

rad-x 05-19-2003 11:18 AM

Empire Strikes Back is the best by a mile. I never liked ROTJ, it was so forced, the Emperor was changed from cunning evil to evil evil, Carrie Fisher's acting was off, the speeder bikes went at 1000 miles an hour (I'm totally truthful on this, it was nearly as bad as that) and it takes Luke a couple of minutes to walk back, bloody giant bridge explosions, Yoda dies, inferior plot, stupid Second Death Star idea, ewoks (teddy bears) overcoming Imperial Troops (battle-hardened kickass troops) getting their ass whooped, no funny dialogue between Leia and Han, flawed Jabba (another evil evil character, seems George Lucas needs to simplify things), flawed Jabba's palace, good Sarlacc idea ruined by clumsy jumps, non-scary noises, and not large or flapping enough tentacles, Lando looks stupid in General outfit, Darth Vader now totally pathetic and unscary, ground battle of Endor cringe-inducing.

On the bright side, great music, Admiral Ackbar and that brilliant Mon Cal cruiser ship, amazing music in Vader vs Luke, and great explosions and co. in Second Death Star battle.

platypus202 05-29-2003 03:15 AM

I Love them all but, Empire Strikes Back was by far my favorite.

benTantilles 05-30-2003 10:25 AM

personally, i like rotj for it's plot contributions (eg battle of endor) but i honestly think esb was better, by far, as a movie.

MennoniteHobbit 05-31-2003 07:26 PM

Favorite Classic Movie
My favorite movie is Return of the Jedi, although I really liked the first Death Star Scene in A New Hope. Empire Strikes Back wasn't that great since Hoth wasn't that exciting other than seeing the AT-AT Walkers blasting the base into oblivion. :D
