Return is such a dud that no amount of [Special Edition] reworking could have saved it.
...Dud? From every Star Wars fan I've talked to, most say its as good as or better than Empire Strikes back... My personal take is that while Empire Strikes Back excels in depth and story, Return of the Jedi excels in action and entertainment. And besides Luke went from innocent farm boy to mature and awesome rocking Jedi! And the Green Lightsaber is just awesome. So while I feel it is okay to not call it the best of the original trilogy, to call it a dud is crossing the line :)

"Return of the Jedi" is not a classic, but it's not a dud as you claim. It's still a great action picture on its own and a solid end to a classic trilogy. Also, it's INFINITELY greater and emotionally resonant than any of the Prequel films, including "Revenge of the Sith". That sucked too.

Sith was the only prequel that didn't suck. In my opinion Sith was even better than Jedi. Jedi is still good though.

Not sure how you can come to the conclusion that Sith is anywhere near as good as Jedi. Sith is 120mins of rendered pixels with a rotten script and terrible performances. Ian McDiarmid is all it has up it's sleeve.

Return of the Jedi was not the greatest, but definitely a really good star wars film.
