"Poll question: Is it possible the Ewoks aren't that bad?"


  

          

I'm watching Jedi on HBO, and it occurs to me that my hipster disdain for the ewoks is probably misplaced. I mean, yeah, they came into being for merchandising, but there are actually some pretty good scenes. The Threepio is a god thing is cute. They do good work in the battle--the scene where the one realizes the other is dead is genuinely touching and brings home the magnitude of the battle they're fighting. Plus one of them pets Chewie, which is cool.

I'm also thinking that Mark Hamel actually didn't suck as much as I thought he did (with the exception of the infamous "FATHER, PLEEEEASE" scream) but one battle at a time.

Then again, I never was a die-hard Star Wars fan so I didn't mind the change in tone. Although the tonal shift from Empire to Jedi was pretty crazy.

For all the reasons that you listed, the scene where one of them steals the speeder-bike, and that they were basically able to kick the Empire's ass for all intents and purposes, without the Rebels. Well, maybe they needed Chewbacca, but that's about it.

P.S. Jedi is still the best movie in the trilogy. Indeed.

We're really supposed to believe Han Solo is noble enough to only attack in self defense?

I can't really explain why I've always liked Greedo though, I guess it's because he's who I'd be if I was a character in a movie.

The thing is this - the first half of the movie with Jabba the Hutt and his legion of monsters scared the shit out of kids. Especially on the big screen. So the Ewoks appearing in the 2nd half was somewhat of a soft cushion for any kids who had been traumatized. They were cute, but not annoying.

I don't even know why someone thought mildly-garbled French would sound like an alien language, but I guess it at least made the movie funny to me

Not only is it is shameless revival of the idea of the Noble Savage, but they are fucking TEDDY BEARS. Some fucking Pygmy Wookies defeat the Empire?!!?!? Storm Trooper armor can't even protect you from a rock???

Are you kidding me?

People hate the Ewoks for good reason.
It was the downfall of the series.
Jar Jar was the evolution of the racist thought process that gave birth to the Ewoks.

Let me say that again.

Y'all have been Bamboozled by Lucas.
Just because he makes them look like aliens, doesn't mean they aren't shucking and jiving.

And how can they be the "downfall of the series" if they're in the last fucking movie (technically) and don't appear until about an hour into it? Sweet Jesus.

I mean really.

After watching Empire Strikes Back, and then viewing Return of the Jedi, its an extreme letdown.

The ewoks keep the entertainement going.

But overall, Return of the Jedi seems so lame now.

40. "Ewoks or Jawas?"
In response to Reply # 38


  

          

Its been a long time since Ive seen the movies but Jedi was always my favorite. The parts at Jabba's palace was awesome. I was always angry how Boba Fett got taken out like that (Even Jango got owned quickly). I heard Lucas was annoyed how so many people were so excited about Fett and that that's why he killed hiim like he did.

But about the ewoks they were cool but they were definitley annoying sometimes. How about the Jawas though? Is it agreed that they kicked ass?

Who would win in a fight Ewoks or Jawas?

What if the ewoks and jawas worked together? Who would win then? Its seems like they may have been smarter than tuskan raiders.

In response to Reply # 43

If its on dantooine....the Sand people know ALL the backroutes and probably have it all mapped out in terms of effective battle positions and pinching points(of course the Jawas are on Dantooine as well, but they be rolling around all day in the Crawler, Sand cats would just outflank em and eventually configure a strategy on how to penetrate and murder em). If its on Endor....the advantage goes to the Ewoks and Jawas.

True. Ewoks couldnt do much in a wide open desert but if the Jawas had a little time to teach them how to use some weapons they could pull it off. Plus who know what the Jawas would bring out of their crawler they build all kinds of crap.

49. "ewoks=best civilization ever on earth"
In response to Reply # 48


          

the ewoks are permaculture experts.

ewoks are the illest, they dress dope as hell. they smoke trees. thier parties are the best in the galaxy. their dance moves are the dopest since jabbas entourage. they go so dumb when they slump fools. their music will melt your face. they are loyal and brave. ewoks are unfuckwitable.

plus even the ewok movie is ill.

It's the most fun imo. Between Jabba, the Ewoks smashing the robots, and the Emperor scenes, it is my favorite one to watch.

like, they hurl a rock at a fucking soldier in full body armour and the mofo goes down for the count. i know this is true of storm troopers in general, but it was so stupid when a teddy bear can fuck up a member of the empire military with a flick of his wrist and a pebble.
