I really enjoy watching Return of the Jedi, probably a lot more than most people. This is probably because Lawrence Kasdan returned as one of the writers and I credit every great moment in this movie to him. The other writer was actually George Lucas and... it's pretty clear his creativity was nowhere near as great as Lawrence's. Lucas' writing here is nowhere near as bad as the Star Wars prequels, but it still isn't as good. It's not as perfect at Empire or even as great as Star Wars, but it was a fun and entertaining movie that gives the Original Trilogy a nice ending.

Experience the triumph of the Force in the epic conclusion to the 'Star Wars' saga! Following Han Solo's (Harrison Ford) capture and Carbonite entombment, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), and the two droids set out to free him from the clutches of the vile gangster, Jabba the Hutt. Meanwhile, Imperial forces prepare to crush the Rebellion once and for all with the construction of an even more powerful second Death Star. But even greater than the massive attack that Rebel forces will deliver on the half-completed station is the sinister plan that the Emperor himself sets into motion to bring a certain father and son together one final time for in a vicious, climatic duel!
While not as outstanding as the first two films in the trilogy, 'Jedi' delivers an incredibly rousing conclusion! All of the unanswered questions from the first two films are satisfactorily answered here: Will Han Solo get out of the Carbonite? Is Darth Vader really Luke Skywalker's father? And exactly who is "the other" that Yoda spoke of? The conclusion to one of the most epic sagas in filmmaking history will leave you feeling grateful for the Force!
