    This is still my favorite movie in the original trilogy. Granted, I still base this on my outlook of the original cuts. I totally understand people having only seen the newer Lucas versions, and being turned off by it. ROTJ got hit the hardest by the new edits.

    "Jedi Rocks" only gets worse with age. I'm almost at the point where I need to fast forward through it, it's so obnoxious.

    Was just rewatching this and it reaffirmed itself as being my absolute favourite. The entirety of the third act and its constant cutting back and forth between the ground assault, the space battle and the throne room, is incredibly climactic and with a great emotional weight to it. I'm continually amazed that more SW fans don't consider Return of the Jedi to be the franchise's finest hour.
