Here’s a bit of a retro treat for a Saturday afternoon…
Back in 1983, the legendary ‘At the Movies’ duo of Siskel & Ebert appeared on ABC’s Nightline with the noble purpose of defending Return of the Jedi from fellow film critic, John Simon. While the art of being a critic is all about expressing your opinion, Mr. Simon seems to have an unusually strong disdain for the Star Wars Saga as a whole. For example, he says the three lead actors are “lousy” and the movies are “completely dehumanizing.”
It’s interesting to note that, at one point – while bemoaning the use of special effects – he says that the films are something Walt Disney could have done just as well. Guess we’ll find out on December 18, 2015!
Check out the fun in the video below!
