Fresh off two fantastic films, comes "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi," an overlong, yet satisfying finish to a great trilogy. It drags out the story a little too much, before reaching the climax that is worth waiting for, but having a film that is longer than the first ...
In the final episode of the Star Wars saga, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) emerges intact from the carbonite casing in which he'd been sealed in The Empire Strikes Back. The bad news is that Solo, together ... read more

four and a half stars!!

A surprisingly inferior motion picture compared to the previous two, but still a worthwhile ending despite not quite living up to expectations. The movie is definitely lighter in tone and content than its predecessors. The ewoks are clearly aimed at kids and really just don't fit...

Like many of its fellow threequels, Return of the Jedi is commonly regarded as the runt of the litter. It's received the harshest treatment of any Star Wars film before the prequels, with Kevin Smith's character in Clerks going so far as to brand it "Muppets in space". But while ...

Not the strongest out of the orignal trilogy, but far stronger than the prequels combined. To me, the Ewoks didn't do very much to help the story in Episode VI, but there is still plenty of action, emotion and some more mysteries between characters are revealed.

The final film of the original trilogy brings the story to a well-deserved ending, regardless of its wandering plot. From its continuous visual expansion to the well-made chemistry of its stars, 'Jedi' still amazes in more ways than one. 4/5

A perfect ending to one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. It is not quite as great as the previous two, but that is like saying a cheeseburger is not as delicious as the other two. Even the weakest entry in the original Star Wars trilogy is still an epic piece of cine...

Return of the Jedi is a fantastic finale to the saga. I believe it has an ultimate cinematic presence despite others saying its the least memorable of the orignal classic trilogy. It is still a classic film, the ultimate, tenseful ending between Vader and Luke is enough to call t...

Despite this film being the weakest of the original trilogy, it's still a great film. Luke Skywalker is now a Jedi Knight and he has to help rescue Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba the Hutt, the fattest monster to ever be put on the big screen. (Next to Rosie O'Donnell.) Luke ...

RETURN OF THE JEDI, originally under the working title Revenge of the Jedi, was a notable step down from the previous two films. That does not, however, say that it wasn't a good film.
Ever heard of an Ewok? Or have you ever been compared to an Ewok when you lo...
