Samplecious Crumb

Full Rifftrax to be released 1/22/10
http://www.rifftrax.com/rifftrax/star-wars-episode-vi-return-jedi

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/bQeuXki0L3I&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/bQeuXki0L3I&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;</a>

Return of the Jedi.  For sixteen years, it was widely regarded as the worst chapter in the Star Wars saga.  We now look back upon this period of time, appalled and embarrassed at how naive we were.  For while Return of the Jedi may be slow to get started, while it may delay the final confrontation between Luke and Vader in favor of an endless Ewok/Stormtrooper battle, while it may feature C3PO as its main character for the first twenty minutes and while it may have killed off Salacious Crumb instead of making him the focus of the entire movie, consider this: nobody utters the line "Yippee".

Return of the Jedi begins where The Empire Strikes Back left off: with George Lucas deciding which scenes to ruin by inserting a musical number by a hideous creature named Sy Snootles, who sounds like Disembaudio did before he took singing lessons.  The dance scene is vital to the plot: how were we, the audience members supposed to know whether or not Jedi rocked, unless there was a song included in the movie named "Jedi Rocks"?  Yes, the song is sung in a foreign tongue and the only way you'd know it was called "Jedi Rocks" was if you bought the soundtrack, but ignoring those irrelevant points, we can finally conclude after watching six episodes of Star Wars, a task that would take up well over half of one day of your life, that Jedi do in fact, Rock.

Fans of puppets, Hutts and metal bikinis: your ship has come in.  Cancel your weekend trip to the Great Pit of Carkoon, boil up a big bowl of Tatooine paddy frogs and call up your buddy Nien Numb to come sit next to you even though you don't speak the same language: we're finally riffing Return of the Jedi.

As this is the final chapter in the Star Wars saga for RiffTrax to tackle, Mike, Kevin and Bill would like to take the time to reminisce about their favorite moments in the series.  Here they are in order: The time Jar Jar became a senator and the time Stinky the Hutt was kidnapped.  Thank you and good night.

Please note: As with Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, we riffed the Special Edition of the movie.  If you own Return of the Jedi on DVD, you already have the right version.

Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

Funny....at the time people complained that the Tattooine part was the highlight of the film.  That it's after than that you start looking at your watch going, "So when do Luke and Vader square off already?"

Mind you...that was the original edit and the musical bit was much, much shorter.  :D

If the sample is any indication, this is gonna be a treat. The Ewok death speech is great stuff.

This looks like it'll be awesome!

I'm sure they won't do it, but I had the funny idea that they could do the song in Jabba's Palace as one long Disembaudio sync line.

I have a feeling that "The Hurt Locker as performed by the Build-A-Bear Workshop" will be my new favorite riff for a while.  :D

"MY SINUSES!"

The quick, off-the-cuff, seemingly throwaway riffs are always the ones that hit me hardest.

I think the latest release I've watched was actually ESB, so it would be sorta fitting to make this one next. Sure it will be a fun time.
