    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.
