I'm pretty sure it's already Shia LaBeouf.

Without a doubt.


I've never understood his appeal.

I'm not a Shia LaBeouf fan. I will watch the movie because I love the classic Indy movies. But I will be disappointed I'm sure. Just like the new Star Wars movies. George Lucas does like to ruin great things.

All a matter of taste! I like the acting and story much better in Return of the Jedi, though.

And Natalie Portman may be a good-looking girl, but her acting is pretty bad. Especially in #3.

No. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, two of the stars, are terrible in Jedi. They're both sleepwalking. For evidence, see: 1. the rescue scene in Jabba's Palace ("Someone who LOVES you." Ugh.) and 2. Their lovers quarrel in the Ewok village. The only good acting in the film is from Mark Hamill and Ian McDiarmid.

Also, the story is crap. Another Death Star? Is that supposed to be original? Little munchkin bears who magically defeat an imperial army with sticks and stones?

I know that the prequels aren't everyone's cup of tea, but the plots were a hell of a lot more imaginative (to the point of being convoluted, I admit) than what was going on in Jedi. At least it wasn't a rehash of the others.

It's close for me though... ewoks vs chewbakkas ? Han and Leia vs Annakin and Padme ? Luke and Emperor vs Annakin and Emperor ?

Palpy's rise to power may be my favorite plot thread of the entire series. He just takes shit over in Sith and it's a hell of a lot of fun to watch (see: The Opera Scene in Sith).

Jedi could've been the greatest film of the bunch, but it's such a lame mess that I don't even know what to think of it anymore. I'll still watch it because it's Star Wars, and the Luke/Vader/Palpy story is excellent, and the Jabba's Palace sequence is great, and the space battle rules, and Admiral Ackbar is prominently involved, but apart from that, it's middle school drama.

I'm gonna sit down and write a treatment or script outline for my ideal version of Jedi, maybe sometime over break after the Heroes Tourney and Space Moon threads are underway.
