It Could Have Been Worse, I Suppose

Star Wars isn't the most cerebral or deep of movies. It relies far too much on hand-waving and armed conflict to move the plot along, it's got a Doomed Home Moisture Farm, not to mention a Doomed Pacifist Planet, and the editing is perhaps a smidge too ADHD; I think it held the record for the number of edits for a movie when it came out.

But at least Lucas didn't go with the early script where Leia gets lippy and "Annikin Starkiller" "has" to punch her out.

Thank goodness for small blessings, I suppose.
