My old roomate actually owned it, so I saw it about two years ago. Not quite as entertaining as when I was a kid, but still, not THAT terrible (well, that all depends on what type of movie you subject yourself to on a regular basis…I have seen worse. MUCH worse). I liked the first one better, but upon watching the sequel, I was also taken aback at the way the little girl’s family is slaughtered in the beginning. He older brother was actually around 17, not pre-teen, but watching him drag his wounded and bleeding mother into a hut, only to watch it explode and their little life meters on the little girl’s wrist band go out was pretty cool. Somehow, I guess my brain just filtered that out as a kid.
Anyway, the first movie is all about this family that gets trapped on Endor, and the kids befriend the Ewoks in order to save the parents from some giant ape looking moster. The sequel has the Ewok village being attacked by a bunch of reptilian people, and the majority of the villiage gets kidnaped. Wicked and the little girl (Syndal [sp?]) escape, meet up with a grissled old man, and go and rescue everyone. The bad guys have some witch helping them, all for some power converter thingy they ripped from the family’s busted up space ship.
Really fun for kids, tolerable for adults, great fun for college students with copious amounts of liquor on hand. If you get the chance, make an evening of it, but don’t expect anything terribly fantastic (and I agree with Tars Tarkas, it was better than Episode 1)
