I link to a post I wrote for the last Star Wars film. I'm sure the devoted fanboys will declare it hte greatest Star Wars film of all time. That's something that Fanboys are known for. The latest whatever is the most awesome example of awesomeness, in the awesome history of awesomely defining the awesome word awesome. At least until the next movie they like comes out.
Whatever it is, it will never match the impact of the original, as every movie, Star Wars sequels or otherwise, has discovered.
