Re-watching Return of the Jedi brings back some great memories from my younger years. Being the oldest guy on our blog I can say I actually remember every release of the original 3. Return of the Jedi in 1983 was a much anticipated film for me. I was under 10 when I first saw Star Wars: A New Hope. I had matured to a grown 12 year old now with RotJ. I wanted to be the first there, that didn’t happen because I couldn’t drive. However, it was the first family film that my (step)dad took all of us to. It was a good evening. I sat mesmerized at the graphics, the film, what would happen with Luke and his dad, Vader, and what about Yoda?
Had I forgotten any of Empire? (This was before our family ever had a VCR.)

On the surface, it’s an action movie, albeit with a stunning visual niche, a very particular vision by a very particular director. All of that is true, but there’s something deeper to the film as well. Something that has garnered praise for the film’s thematic elements that would rival even The Matrix in complexity.

Ender WIggin – “No, you don’t understand. I destroy them. I make it impossible for them to ever hurt me again. I grind them and grind them until they don’t exist.”
