You know, I'm a Kevin Smith fan, but I'm surprised he doesn't come down harder on Jedi. I mean, I loved it, and honestly it was my favorite Star Wars movie as a kid, and probably still is, but most "adult" fans decry it as the worst of the original trilogy, due largely to the kid-friendly Ewoks. Personally, I thought there was way more cool stuff that outweighed the Ewoks, but anyway....

Still, I don't speak lightly on this. I've given it serious thought, and I would rather sit and watch the LOTR trilogy over Episodes 4 - 6 any day (assuming there were no time constraints.)
