I’m putting this in the Pit because I’m sure Fenris will be along soon to tell me how a Star Destroyer would beat the Enterprise if either existed.
But I just watched the last hour and a half of Return of the Jedi, and I don’t know how I loved this crap so much 20-odd years ago. Harrison Ford’s lucky he still has a career after so much scenery chewing, and he is the lucky one–nobody else from the so-called saga has one, and according to rumor, Sir Alec would take out your front teeth for calling him Obi-Wan.
But on to the Chick Tract aspect. Anikin Skywalker starts off well. He’s a good boy (though he drops out of school to become a jedi), but soon turns to the “dark side.” As I return to Return of the Jedi, I notice that “there’s still some good left in him.” Enter Luke “Uncle Bob” Skywalker to come save him from hell at the last minute.
The one other parallel I noticed was that the emperor and Vader freely admitted that they lived for the cause of galactic evil, just as the witches, jews, and catholics in Chick Tracts tm do.
So, I submit to you, Teeming Milliions tm (Jeez, I love this new interface almost as much as I love Eng Hump and being circumsized), is the “Star Wars Saga” as big a steaming pile of crap as I see it now?
Or have I had one too many beers tonight?
