How was it integral? It had to be there so Han could cock block Lando later in the movie? 

So that Han's capture could have some emotional impact? Would you rather have him tell Chewie he loves him?

A fairly short sequence of the film where the female lead is in some state of undress, which even though it's a fairly small part of the film, is usually all over the previews.

1. Star Trek XI
CROW:  (Sinisterly) The Secret Government Eggo Project...
--Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie

"Jason, Chess is a game of chance."
-- My friend Shawn to my friend Jason upon being defeated at a game of Chess.

Fine, then he was a computer which controlled the whole operation. Aka, a robot.

...yup. Okay. I retract. A computer is a robot. Sorry to interrupt. Carry on.

Voice-over narration that in no way clarifies what the hell is going on.

1. Dune
2. Blade Runner
3. The Creeping Terror
4.  A Scanner, Darkly
5. The Beast Of Yucca Flats
6. The "Warrior" comic book


I'm not sure if the Warrior comic book counts as sci-fi - to be honest, I don't know WHAT it is (besides horrible).  But it appears to take place on some other planet and features teleportation of some kind, so I'm counting it.
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.
