    I'm telling you guys, Clone Wars animated was the best Star Wars series every done.

    The best thing in the movie(s) was Carrie Fisher half nude with a collar on...

    DB beat me to the punch.

    That's rare. Bravo.

    There's a saying now referring to Boba's dead pool status, "Schrodinger's Fett".

    In my opinion, the best scene about the first movie was flight of the death star bombing run which paid homage to WWII dramas involving bombers.

    That is, up to the surprise last minute attack by Solo which smacked of George Lucas's pathological inability to capitalize on or understand dramatic tension. The worst thing about the movies was Lucas's attempts at comic relief.

    Same thing about the 2nd movie. Everything went to **** in the 3rd movie with the singing aliens in Jabba's palace and stupid Ewoks. The entire franchise never recovered because it handed full creative control over to Lucas for the 3rd movie which resulted in fatally poisoned prequels.

    The Prequels were a mess of over choreographed everything, CGI, constant camera cuts and fight scenes with no real tension. Bright colors and over-dressed supporting roles replaced grim realities. The Marvel movies also suffer from this sickness and it's getting worse. Disney is pathologically unable to create a drama because they want to make movies for little kids with lots of flashing lights, fancy dance moves, bells and assorted wacky sounding whistles.

    You know, those helmet-covering-face dudes probably stick up for each other. But would have overcharged Lily.

    Carmine Infantino+Austin and Michael Golden drew comics with a pretty cute Leia. Damn, I'm old.

    Well, it is a philosophy with some utility to it.
