Perhaps my favorite Star Wars movie. The ewoks are cute, the final battle is great, and I really all the scenes with the commandos sneaking around endor. I've also seen some videos on the background of the Star Wars movies. I learned that in episode 4, Han Solo's design started off as being a scaly, reptilian monster. Also when George Lucas scared Carrie Fisher into working out when he first showed her the bikini. And, what I think is the most awesome. Captain Rex is in episode 6!!!!

It is the best movie out of the whole Star Wars Story. One objection: Leia's clothes get a little small. It is not the character's fault, it is the director, producer, and actress's (Carrie Fisher) fault.

My all time favorite Star Wars film. For years I've been wanting to see the film in it's close to original format. When I found out there was a limited edition of the original film on DVD at my local library I couldn't say no, so I placed a hold on the film and waited.

I was expecting the original 2006 limited edition non-special edition DVD. But to my disappointment I realized I had waited four whole weeks (or longer) for a 2013 disc with the awful changes not present in the 2004 or 1997 Special editions. And for someone who grew up with the 2004 Special Edition, this new "updated" version of the film is by far the worst.

If you are expecting the original (maybe not the best quality) version of 'Jedi' you won't get it, just the new unnecessarily, highly tampered version with the infamous Vader "Nooo!". For now it's just better going online and downloading the fan-edits/preservation's of the films like the De-specialized Editions until Disney somehow releases the highly demanded unaltered HD versions of the trilogy in the (hopefully) near future.

Why does the library have only ONE copy of this, when there are 47 holds at the time I'm writing this? My hold is 12 in line but good luck to me ever getting this, with the way the library manages holds - no one is ever going to return this damn' movie to Waterdown! I've twice suggested that the library buy additional copies, since clearly this is still very popular - have no idea if my suggestions have fallen on deaf ears but that's what it seems like....

Howard Hawks once said a great movie is three good scenes and no bad ones–unfortunately, this installment has three good scenes (rescue of Hans from Jabba, the assault on the empire shield generator, and Luke’s confrontation with Vader) and no other ones (and it still somehow manages to feel disjointed). Still great fun, just a bit overlong for what it is.

The novelty of the 1st & 2nd films may be lost on some. Let's face it, in 1977, 12 year old children become enamoured with the characters and the story, but 6 years on, they're 18, so part of that original demographic is jaded. It doesn't help that the triumphant finale is dependent on Ewoks and Darth Vader isn't such a bad guy after all; the main characters prevail, the force continues and apparently there will be a 7th film courtesy of Disney™.
