    Someone took a look at the fan reaction to Empire Strikes Back using fan letters to a sci-fi magazine, Starlog, whose contents are still archived online.

    Some complaints, some confusion, some theorizing.

    I understand all the reasoning behind that, FaF, but, as I already said, let's overanalyze this... it's just space magic. That's that.

    Thank you for that link, that was a good read.

    Especially the people encouraging unwittingly, Leia + Luke twincest.

    Totally. Pretty classical, I may say. In the 30s people in hollywood and cinema enthusiasts did complain because there were too many remakes and sequels of old movies. In the 1930s!

    Now that Iíve had time to reflect on it, I can say I hated it. It was shit.

    Spoiler:
    Not really a fanboy, but why mess up a good thing? Why take new fresh and exciting story arcs set up TFA and just take a dump all over them? There was no payoff in this film. I wonder what George Lucas thinks.


    Looking forward to Avengers: Infinity War. Donít think Iím going to get excited about Star Wars ever again.

    My response: I don't think there was dumping, and anyway, even if there was, why not? A++ Would Watch Again.

    (OK, more like B++ or A- actually, mainly due to the scene which was being debated above)

    It's kind of funny that people who didn't love the movie are being labeled "fanboys". 2017 truly is a backwards year
