Can we have one thread that doesn't feature a fat joke?

Huh. I agree with Machete dude. I can see how the detour would make ROTJ stronger.

"Return Of The Jedi" made a lot more sense to me after seeing the prequels--all that blather about "Your thoughts betray you" and "I can feel the good in you" and "turning to the dark side" made a lot more sense a couple of decades later when the prequels came along to put all of it into context for me.

I think that idea is brilliant, and I may try it out when and if I ever watch these movies with the kids.

Darth Maul has a cool look and an awesome signature weapon, but no personality or background. He's just this guy who went 1-1-0 in the Ultimate Lightsaber Championships.

Third option:

You watch Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back, enjoying every minute, and just grit your teeth through the .... less than stellar stuff in Return of the Jedi.

Then you go to bed happy that you have almost a perfect trilogy, and no one ever came along later and tried to tell a prequel story.

And you probably didn't even need to Google it. What a nerd.

I'm not sure I even understand the appeal of his look. He looks like there is some sports team whose colors are black and red, and he's one of those jag-offs who show up to the event with his face painted like a jag-off.

Jag-off.

Well, what can you do?

I was just looking at some photos of Darth Maul and I have to agree, he looks like a cheesily painted sports fan whose team colors are red and black. I mean, it looks like paint - maybe if it looked more like tattoos or natural coloring somehow, but it just didn't. It probably would have been better had he kept his hood on and we only were allowed glimpses of his face.

There are only three movies cooler. Ask Hanzo.

It's actually one cooler movie, split into three parts.

It's not cool, it's 90% awful. But Darth Maul is fucking awesome and the last lightsaber fight and John Williams' 'Duel of the Fates' soundtrack piece is the fucking balls.

BALLS.

BALLS. IN MY MOUTH.


That analogy clears up why you enjoy it but I do not.
