The Pink Ladies seem to be the T Birds communal property. Zmed tries way too hard to be cool. The female characters put on silly breathy voices. Motorbike ‘toughs’ ride around and go bowling. There is bad singing of bad songs. A little sister is ignored and abandoned on the street. This was neither funny nor heartfelt. There are smug remarks, an overdone talent show and a luau. Michael seems to have no friends, gets the girl and hangs out with the T Birds despite the fact they tried to kill him. This was noisy, ugly and mean.
“I’m sure you have more respect for grass then that.”
“I got a rep to protect.”
“Where does the pollen go?”
“The code does say that we’re T Bird chicks at least til grad.”
There is a battle on Endor. There is a frog thing Admiral. Luke has emotional anguish. Obi-Wan tells Luke of the grim necessity of killing his dad. This was not brutally intense. The good guys win and their triumph would turn to ashes in ‘Force Awakens’. Han has a lax work ethic, Lando is there and the Special Edition VFX is badly grafted on. Luke never asks about his mother. Why would Darth Vader want his son to be a Sith after what happened to him? Ewoks fight the Empire with logs and rocks.
The Emperor tries to lure Luke to the Dark Side by talking like a creepy sex pest. There is a trap and Darth Vader saves his son. Luke dragging a wounded Darth Vader through the Death Star attracts no notice. Good wins, for now.
“You like your father are now mine.”
“Young Skywalker will be one of us.”
“The Force is strong in my family.”
“Hidden from your father when you were born.”
“Only together can we turn him to the dark side of the force.”
