One of the many coffeehouses in Park Slope has this cute thing - they name their coffee sizes - writing the names on sample cups on shelf on the wall above the coffee maker.

I don't mean tall-vente-grande. I mean Moe-Larry-Curly. No one uses the names - they order the coffee as small-medium-large, as is proper. Besides, the names change at least once a week.

Today? In order of size, large to small - "The Empire Strikes Back", "Star Wars: A New Hope" (bleh. It's Star Wars. Star Wars I.) and "Return of the Jedi."

Clearly, the order is wrong. Completely wrong. And I said so. Poor, deluded counterperson, who really thought Empire was the best of the lot. *shakes head*.

(And, yeah. I know people will disagree with me. They're free to do so, but they would be wrong. Leia in a bikini. Dancing teddy bears. I ask you.)

Current Mood: not serious

Dancing teddy bears, a second exploding Death Star, and Leia in a bikini definitely win out over Luke getting his hand cut off.

But over the wonder and glory that was Star Wars?

Or over YODA? :)

Yoda is a compelling argument for ESB. And New Hope had the best Obi-Wan material.

On second thought, I can't rate them. I liked different things from each.

Empire had those awesome snow scenes, but I'm tempted to agree, because Leia in a bikini just plain wins.

Sounds right to me.

Hey, that is dancing, ARMED teddy bears who make complete mooks out of the Empire! That shaman ewok wore a skull that had serious *fangs* on it!

Sorry, Leigh Brackett's writing wins out every time for me. Dialogue! Speakable by human beings! Nuance! A romance that feels adult! Wee!
