Skip Jabba's Palace

The Jabba's Palace scene is pretty shoddy, with a bunch of fake-looking puppets and costumes. It only became worse with the new "special edition" musical number. However, skip this, and the rest of the movie is awesome. Great space battles over Endor, and a spine-chilling Emperor. Also, the revisions after the first 44 minutes (or Jabba's death) are pretty much for the better.

Well folks, I've finally finished my Star Wars sextuple feature and plan to move on to Indiana Jones or The Matrix soon, probably during the weekend. And boy did I finish with a good movie. Return of the Jedi definitely does not reach the greatness of the first two films, and definitely has some silly stuff in it. However, it is very entertaining and ends on a truly heartwarming note, making it a fitting end to a classic series. It also has the same great action and a wonderful story sprinkled …

When I normally review a film or book, I try to include a short summary about what the film is about. However, for RETURN OF THE JEDI I'm not going to do that. RETURN OF THE JEDI is viewed by most fans as the weakest film in the original trilogy. There are a lot of people who hated and still hate the Ewoks (I think partially because Ewoks were originally supposed to be Wookies and partially because a lot of fans saw the Ewoks as just another way George was marketing the "final" Star Wars film to …

About this movie

Wiki

The 2006 limited-edition two-disc release ofReturn of the Jediis not only the first time the movie has been officially available by itself on DVD. It marks the first-ever DVD release ofJedias it originally played in theaters in 1983. What does that mean exactly? The film is without the various "improvements" and enhancements George Lucas added for the theatrical rerelease in 1997 as well as the DVD premiere in 2004. So Sebastian Shaw reclaims his spot as the man behind Darth Vader's mask, and we don't see the otherworldly celebration (including the Gungans) at the end of the movie.

What do you lose by watching the 1983 version? Dolby Digital 5.1 EX sound, for one thing (only 2.0 Surround here), and digital cleanup. But for home-theater owners, the biggest frustration will be from the non-anamorphic picture. On a widescreen TV, an anamorphically enhanced (16x9) picture at a 2.35:1 aspect ratio will fill the screen with the exception of small black bars on the top and bottom. The original edition of Jedi, however, on a widescreen TV will have large black bars on the top, the bottom, and the sides unless you stretch the picture (and distort it in the process, especially considering the substandard picture quality). If you're watching on a standard square-shaped (4:3) TV, though, you won't notice a difference.

Yes, it's true that serious home-theater lovers who want spectacular sound and anamorphically enhanced picture can always watch the 2004 version of the movie also included...
