Sci-Fi over Spy-Fi in this case.
Im sorry but star wars is far better than 007
"Come on, it's Star Wars!" Yes. It's Star Wars. So? The prequels are Star Wars. I'm just not a big fan of Return of the Jedi. The actors look bored for the most part, the Ewoks are lame, there's a lot of recycling, the direction isn't that great, the jokes are borderline awful and the 'Leia is your sister' subplot is underwhelming. I still like it though, just not nearly as much as Star Wars and Empire. Tomorrow Never Dies is a massively underappreciated Bond flick. The villain is great, I love that the Bond theme plays CONSTANTLY (yes, it's overused, but hearing an awesome tune over and over again doesn't bother me), the action is cool and the Bondgirl played by Michelle Yeoh kicks some ass for once. It is flawed, but is it entertaining? Hell. Yes.
So...which side of the "Ewok Curve" are you on? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzZYanCQyHo)
I actually prefer Jedi to the first film, but you are right about the recycling. And I didn't think the Ewoks were lame, but Ford and Fisher aren't given that much to do that is interesting, and the problem begins with...Empire. Yes, I am criticizing my favorite film, but even my favorite film has flaws, and as Kasdan has noted, he always felt there was a "hint of falsity" about the romance between the two of them. Lucas, typically not interested in such details, did not lay out consistent characterizations for his characters or his actors. How could he, when he can't even write dialogue? Honestly, that the original trilogy turned out as well as it did was some miracle of convergence and/or happenstance. TMD? I thought Pryce played the media mogul lamely (too much ham and all of it fat); the rest of it was ok. Yeoh was underutilized - spend more time on her, less on Hatcher, but of course the formula forces them to always have two Bond girls.
