Yeah, that one is easy to handwave by your explanation and you'd at least think the empire had some kind of ECM that would make targetting it from a distance difficult to impossible. (targetting the vent that is)

yeah there is no reason the two of them should be together. Aside from them both being good looking there is never any real chemistry between the two of them.


It's a love story written by a middle school kid.

OFr some reason it has always bugged me that I don't know what it is or what it was for. (a friend suggested maybe it was a courier, but, really? They don't need couriers, they can just digitally send messages, let alone call on the speaker/communicator microphone, etc) Dang it, what is that thing!?...

C3PO says he basiccally doesn't know, she was a passenger on the ship they were on.

But at the start of the movie he says to RD D2 "there will be no escape for the princess this time."

So he was either lying to Luke or they should have rewrote some lines.
Or C3P0 knew the princess was on the ship, but didn't know who she was.

The things that irritate me most about the Star Wars series are the various instances that are identical to other instances.

Such as: Off the top of my head, I can think of six people/creatures that get their arm or hand chopped off.

A number of characters are thrown down large pits (some after having their arms cut off)

NOONE EVER STOPS SAYING "I've got a bad feeling about this" OR THE PHRASE "Only hope"

Also, there's no sound in space. I don't care what galaxy you're in, space is space. No sound.

Don't care how hard he was partying after getting the gold medal in ya in Olympic!
When you have your cheekbone crushed in a car accident, see how good YOU look, hmm?

(Note: This actually happened. Mark Hamill broke his nose and left cheekbone in a car accident towards the end of filming for Episode IV)

I'm with you on this one. I saw Star Wars (now New Hope) when it first hit the theaters and I was completely amazed. Some of the new shine had worn off by Empire Strikes Back, but that was ok because the story was actually better. Return of the Jedi, unfortunately, was the first movie where Lucas used part of the movie, wholly, as a marketing venue. The advertisement for the Ewok toys wasn't quite as blatant as the commercial of the Pod Racing game in Phantom Menace, but it was blatant enough.

Here is my biggest question:

In Episode I (the easiest incident I remember) light sabers are used to cut open a big door. And it would appear as they are burning through it there is some sort of resistance, whereas, if you were using a welding torch one would be able to just move it freely. Kind of confusing I know, but hopefully you guys get what I mean.

The door was really thick, you could cut through, remove, cut through, remove. Or you could use the lightsaber/force to melt the door down. Which would look a heck of a lot cooler.
