Star Wars: Episode VI-Return of the Jedi
Directed by Richard Marquand
Between sifting through disgusting, bloody photos for my Videodrome post and then coming across some rather shocking Princess Leia Comic-Con photos, finding pictures for my blog has become hazardous to my eyes. We finally come to the last part of our trilogy and the last time this series was somewhat respectable.
Princess Leia and Luke attempt to save Han Solo from the evil crime lord Jabba the Hutt. Leia is captured, gold bikini clad adventures ensue. Luke and Leia's previous kiss becomes incredibly creepy and Ewoks delight millions.
This is the favorite installment of a lot of fans and it is easy to see why. The action never lets up for a minute and things are wrapped up rather beautifully. Still, I do feel like it became blatantly obvious in this movie that the filmmakers were becoming more and more money crazed. Maybe they always were but they used to cover it up better.
I will always love this trilogy, though. I saw the remastered version recently where Hayden Christensen was digitally added. It actually wasn't the worst.
Several "wardrobe malfunctions" occurred during the scene where Leia is a slave due to the skimpy nature of her costume.
Endor is the Elvish name for Middle Earth in Lord of the Rings. Nerdiest sentence ever.
