We gave it a B+

Forget the fuzz-ball Ewoks, boring Jabba the Hutt, and the dreaded Emperor (who’s more like The Simpsons‘ Mr. Burns than the Scariest Personage in the Cosmos). What rocks in this third installment of the rereleased Star Wars trilogy is John Williams’ music, the elemental father-son stuff, Princess Leia’s fetching bikini, and everyone’s fabulous headgear. B+
