It is understandable that this film garnered a cult following, despite it's cult status, I believe the film was overrated. I'd still give it credit for being an early slasher film though. The story centred around 4 kids who accidentally caused the death of one of their friends when they were still kids, now a killer began killing each one of them on the prom night to avenge the girl. There wasn't much to watch out for, Jamie Lee Curtis was surprisingly a good dancer! The chasing scene of one of the girls with the killer was entertaining. Overall, the film bored its audience for 50 minutes before anything actually happened.
Fairly predictable following similar storyline of Prom Night and I Know What You Did Last Summer with added Jennifer's body element. It had annoying teenagers like the rest of the slasher films, bitches and pricks. Even though the killer was easy to guess, he did use some inventive ways to kill people. The whole was a satire of the popular culture and teenage hormone I guess.
What a money grubbing rip off! Lucas was even being lazy on the plot, the prequel was absolutely unnecessary, I really couldn't care less about Anakin Skywalker's back story, the race was pointless. What really bugged me was the introduction of Jar Jar Binks, the worst character in the entire franchise.There was stunning visual effects, sure, but the dialogues and acting were so bad, I wanted to cry.
Ewoks are adorable. Return of Jedi may not have been as good as The Empire Strikes Back but it was still entertaining and fun to watch. The plot was a bit loose this time, but the acting was still great, swash-buckling was fine and there was a happy resolution to everything.
After characters having been introduced in the first film, more storylines were able to be developed with greater details. The Empire Strikes Back offered more ground breaking plot twists, better special effects than the predecessor and more actions. It is engaging and cleverly directed. The Empire Strikes Back won't disappoint any one and it is family friendly.
