The animated Clone Wars releases into theaters this Friday, and though rebel critics may
be giving it a current drubbing, Star Wars releases are always pop
culture events. Especially when this one looks to be series' final theatrical
release for the foreseeable future. Rotten Tomatoes takes stock of the George
Lucas franchise, arranging each installment of history's most celebrated space
opera by Tomatometer.
When we think of a hardcore Star Wars fan, we're sometimes reminded of that
Simpsons' Kamp Krusty episode. It's the one where Bart lists the way his
loyalty to Krusty the Clown has scorched him, which includes a rapid heartbeat
from Krusty vitamins and buying a calculator without a seven or an eight
button. The Star Wars movies have given untold pleasure to millions, and the
video games are all pretty good, but otherwise we're concerned for the true
Force devotee who sifts through the extraneous flotsam (most of dubious
quality) that floats throughout the world of Star Wars. That includes 1984's
Caravan of Courage, a cheesy, kid-targeted Ewok adventure made for TV and
released theatrically internationally. But, hey, if nostalgia can keep The
Goonies, TRON, and Rick Astley alive, why not the furry Endor
Also, it's amazing to realize that including Return of the Jedi, The
Battle for Endor (CoC's sequel which, unfortunately, doesn't have
enough reviews for a Tomatometer), and the animated show (which still has yet
to get a viable DVD release), it's the Ewoks who have gotten the most screen
time in Lucas's universe.
