Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi 
"Return Of The Jedi" by Yojimbo
3.5/4 stars

What were the rebel alliance thinking? To any military strategist with half a brain, the obvious way to defeat the Empire's finest shock stormtroopers is to deploy a tribe of furry midgets armed with sticks...it's so simple when you think about it! Well we all know what went wrong with this one, and it's probably where the rot started to set in. The most annoying thing is that the original concept was to have a tribe of tree dwelling Wookiees cracking stormtrooper skulls...how cool would that have been?! Despite the obvious drawback of those fuzzy annoyances, it's still proper Star Wars, with the characters we love in their last ditch battle against the Empire. The attack on the Death Star is beautifully choreographed and thrilling, and Luke's final showdown with Vader was everything we hoped for. The DVD update contains more unnecessary CGI, including a musical number in Jabba's palace that's straight out of The Muppet Show (even the Sarlacc has been turned into Audrey II from The Little Shop Of Horrors) a pan-pipe debacle that's even cheesier than the original final Ewok song, and Hayden Christian's gormless pouty face pasted over Anakin at the end. Again, stick to the theatrical version. The weakest of the originals, but still infinitely better than the prequels.
