Top 10 Things You Don’t Say to Star Wars Fans

Contributor: Rick McGimpsey


  1. I don’t get why people think the Original Trilogy is better. The Prequels had much better special effects.
  2. I really can’t stand Ralph MacQuarrie and Drew Struzan. Their artwork really sucks.
  3. So you’re a Star Wars fan? Is that the one with the guy with the pointed ears?
  4. I am sorry but The Empire Strikes Back is too dark and lacks the subtle charm of the Holiday Special.
  5. I really hate how people are taking a dump over the EU. I miss Jaxxon the green rabbit, C3PX the assassin protocol droid, and that prequel story in the Marvel comics where Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Luke’s father fight in the Clone Wars together. That was the hey-day of Star Wars lore!
  6. After the Original Trilogy there were released in the 80’s two direct-to-video Ewok movies that no one seems to remember. I am disappointed that after the Prequels no one did that with the Gungans. Caravan of Boomers? Battle for Otoh Gunga? Those would have been awesome.
  7. I don’t understand why they are getting characters like Han Solo to return to the Sequel Trilogy. Harrison Ford is a bit washed out ain’t he?
  8. Those Clone Wars and Rebels cartoons are so irritating. Did Star Wars suddenly become for kids or something?
  9. John Williams’s score is overrated. Lucas should have stuck with classical music as he originally planned.
  10. I think Greedo shooting first, the blinking Ewoks, and Vader’s “Noooo” yell have overall improved the Star Wars experience making the films infinitely better than they ever were before.
