#22 Star Wars: That's no moon

1977. dir. George Lucas, starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, Anthony Daniels, James Earl Jones.

Seen it before? Of course.

Watching all three of these things today. The first one is still the best one, in my opinion... the first half-hour sort of drags (basically the whole Tatooine part before they go to Mos Eisley) but the rest is pretty great. My favorite actor in the movie is Peter Cushing. His character is so evil.

This movie is a great how-to manual for showing you how NOT to run your evil empire. The Empire constantly makes mistakes. I would point all of them out, but I have a life. I like the little packets of cough drops they wear on their shirts though.

C-3P0 is annoying, and sort of racist.

The three dumbest things said in this movie:

3. Stormtrooper: "It's locked. Move on to the next one." Of course, dumbass. There's no way the droids hiding from you would lock the door.

2. Obi Wan: "Only Imperial Stormtroopers are that precise." The same ones that can't hit you from 8 feet away later in the movie?

1. Imperial soldier: "Hold your fire. There's no life forms aboard." You moron! Droids exist in your universe. What were you thinking?

Position on the list: 12
Hey Red 6: Maybe you should lose some weight
