say what you want about roj... that movie still had some amount of depth. scenes between luke the emporer and his father are some of my gavorite in film. of course the ewoks were a detriment to the film... but since roj all ideas of depth and and characters were non existent. i dont care about the casting to be honest im more concerned with eeal writing being brought back into the fold.
