Zac Weber's rating of the film Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

The only scenes that really standout for me involve Jabba, and Luke's confrontation with Lord Vader and the emperor. Everything from the dialogue between Lando and Nien Nunb to the sexualization of Princess Leia feels shallow, and many of the characters feel like they're a cross between the muppets and Steven Spielberg's Hook. Episode IV and V hold up incredibly well, but Return of the Jedi is laughably bad at times.
