Why I like Return of the Jedi better than The Empire Strikes Back...Author: SM_007 ()

I have to admit that overall, The Empire Strikes Back was a better film than Return of the Jedi. Overall. When you put both films back-to-back from beginning to end, The Empire Strikes Back was better. That I can agree too. However, the ending sequence of Return of the Jedi (hell, the entire sequence in the Emperor's throne room itself) makes Return of the Jedi a great movie, in my opinion. It was a great conclusion for what The Empire Strikes Back had been leading up to, and was just all-around pretty tense, with Luke hiding and Vader in denial about his good side. You get the picture. I just thought the whole evil aura with the Emperor was really interesting and I liked the darker look to Return of the Jedi, especially since for a brief moment Luke turns to the dark side. When I was younger, I used to skip over all the stuff with Jabba the Hutt and the Ewoks and just skip to the space/ground/force battle part of the film, and I used to watch that over and over and over, hehehe.

We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us.
