Kirschner's what pushed the the 2nd film into greatness. Saved us all from George Lucas directing it.

Empire is still my favorite of the series.

Empire is the best for a lot of reasons, but these are my main two reasons:

1. They didn't go for the happy ending, saving that for the last movie.
2. The movie didn't get sidetracked by a bunch of silly critters designed for the little kid audience-Yoda is a muppet and all, but he was a great character.


Return of the Jedi would have been much better without the Ewoks.

Whomever came up with the idea for the ewoks should be drawn and quartered :D
