anything Star Wars after 1983 is irrelevant.
Oh, please...let's have another super long argument about the relevant merits of each of the Star Wars movies...and TV shows.

Said no one ever.

I enjoyed them all...that's right, every one...warts and all. Every one had parts that didn't make sense and yet every one was worth the $12 and the 2-3 hours of my life (many times over). It is entertainment, not religion. It is a shame that YouTube critics are slowly ruining entertainment with standards that no team of creators can possibly reach and maintain. It is taking much of the enjoyment out of the medium.

One man's Star Wars movie is another man's gangster movie. Be thankful we live in a time with choice. Be less thankful we live in a time where everyone feels the need to publish their opinions for the world to see and read.

Off my soapbox now...sorry.
