Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

So I finally got around to watching Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi from my DVD Trilogy Boxed Set.

Overall an alright movie, very much the same as the Special Edition released back in '97. The only two changes I noticed come right at the end. Naboo is added in as one of the celebration worlds in that little montage, and the original ghost of Anakin Skywalker was removed and replaced by Hayden Christenson from Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, except wearing light-side Jedi robes like Yoda and Obi-Wan.

Those changes didn't bother me at all, though Hayden's eye-lines were really messed which made that new addition seem a bit out of place.

I still can't stand the Ewoks though. Really, their just stupid. There's no way they should have been able to defeat the Emperor's "...legion of..." " troops..." with sticks and pebbles. I mean seriously, how could they have built those catapults and arranged all those giant logs right outside the Empire's bunker without them knowing? Should've been Wookies, all of them.

At least the lightsabre duel between Luke and Vadar was great, as well as the Alliance/Imperial space battle. Excellent effects for its day.

Yeah, I need to get a disclaimer up stating that everything will be spelt with Juxtapose-Speak.

It's a long forgotten language that is always spelt correctly. Really.
