    I love ROTJ, I have it third on my list behind TESB and ANH.
    I went to see this in the Cinema when I was 4 years old so it was the first Star Wars film I saw on the big screen as I'd seen ANH and TESB prior to this at home on Betamax video.

    What's not to like about this film, it's fantastic!

    The rescue of Han from Jabba, seeing Luke as a Jedi going head to head with Vader again and facing Palpatine. The BEST space battle in Star Wars, new ships and I loved the battle on Endor. I even loved the Ewoks, as a 4 year old seeing them for the first time was fun and I still enjoy watching this film.

    It was a great ending to the OT.

    The main reason many have for dissing "Return of the Jedi", is the existence of the Ewoks. Accusations have been hurled for years that Lucas purposely geared the film toward young kids, instead of carrying on with the darker themes presented in "The Empire Strikes Back". Personally, I think those accusations are complete BS, and I like the Ewoks for the most part. If anything, their participation in the fight exemplifies the classic battle between nature and technology. My only beef with the film is the "Jedi Rocks" sequence, from the Special Edition. It stops the movie dead in its tracks, and the song makes no sense because its done entirely in an alien language with no subtitles.

    Me too, but I'll always regret George, in the special edition, decided to design that stupid singing toad in the Cantina, rather than animate the Ewoks masks to make them more "living beings".
    That moment Wickett encounters Leia, and is being convinced by a little biscuit, he eats without moving a single lip has always bothered me (1:34 in the video below)
