Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi

My time of rewatches has finally come to an end. This past weekend I sat down to watch the final available Star Wars movie, Return of the Jedi. I’ll admit that some of the elements were probably my favorite, but there were also things that were troublesome as well. At the end of the day,…
