  1. This is my favorite out of all the Star Wars movies.

  2. Happy Birthday Harrison!

    Loved The Empire Strikes Back!

  3. Alison, James, I was surprised at how well this one held up. I’ve pretty much outgrown these things, but I instantly got sucked into this one. The first one carries a similar weight, but not as much as Empire. Return of the Jedi… eh, I could live with out. None of the prequels ever did much for me.

  4. Yeah, Episodes I-III did nothing for me. Return of the Jedi is okay – it wraps things up and there are funny moments in it. The original and this one hold up well, especially this one.
