Of course an automatic 5.

My favourite part of this entire sequence is the reaction of Lando's copilot when the deathstar nukes the first cruiser.

May favourite bit is 5:36, where Ackbar thinks "Ding! Why don't we just use suicide bombers?" before his neck falls over like the Elephant Man.

This is much better without ewoks.

But everything is better with Akbar.

Need I bring up the best line from the only other Black guy in the whole trilogy?


SHE"S GONNA BLOW!!!!!!!11!!

Dr. Lobotomy
Even though he has just a few minutes/seconds of screen time in each episode, Wedge is probably one of the characters that matures the most in the whole trilogy.

Goes from a nervous and hesitant pilot who miraculously survives to a bad ass ace who barely seems fazed by the shit going on around him.
j lzrd / swift idiot
Pretty much. Wedge Antilles also gave us Rogue Squadron, and was the first one to pull off that harpoon/cable AT-AT tripping stunt.

He's the most badass sub-character to survive the whole trilogy.

Cap'n Profan!ty
Wedge is really the ONLY sub-character to survive the whole trilogy.

-1 because the destruction of the Executor is hands down the WORST fucking special effect in the entire damn franchise. sweet fucking jesus, could the flame jets on the set surface be any more obvious? And when did they get that close to the Death Star?

Desidiosus
Considering the three movies since this have had the worst child actor, the worst adult actor and the worst dialog, I can forgive one dodgy special effect.

Ursa_minor
Watching this again made me pay attention to Wedge, and yeah - that motherfucker is a cool headed OPERATOR.

HURF BLURF DUH
Seriously. Wedge is a fucking pimp.

j lzrd / swift idiot
Seriously, even BOBA MOTHERFUCKING FETT didn't (well, canon) kind of last as long as Wedge.

I wonder what ever happened to IG-88, the robo-bountyhunter.

GiantAtomicFreak
I popped a cap in that motherfucker on my N64.

Maggot Brain
Still looks better than anything they did with CGI.

I don't know. I thought the opening battle from Episode III was the most impressive of the entire series. The buzz droids had to come and ruin everything though.

Camonk
The eight year old in me still gets super excited when the Millennium Falcon comes out of the explosion and the little dude laughs all cool, like he wasn't freaked out.
j lzrd / swift idiot
I still get a little sad for Arvyl Crynyl, the A-Wing pilot who kamikaze'd the bridge of the Super Star Destroyer. Then I clap when the sacrifice leads to that huge fucker plummeting like an arrowhead into the D-Star 2.

Senator_Unger
I feel bad that Admiral Piett died, I don't know why but I always got the feeling that he actually wanted to be a good guy and hoped would defect like Crix Madine.

Wonko the Sane
Holy fucking beard

j lzrd / swift idiot
You wanna talk Beard? Star Wars Space-Fighter Handbook or whatever says this is the first time the TIE Interceptor was deployed in a massive Dog-Fight Furball. You can see the TIE Interceptor because of the Darth Vader-style Semi-Octogon wing shape from the front, and the slitted double-edged upper and lower segments.

Twin Ion Engine for the ... oh... lose.

afp3683
I feel sorry for the poor pilots who had to use outdated Y-Wings for this battle.

I wore out many a VHS tape rewinding these battle scenes over and over.
freedoom
the audio sounds different than i'm used to. the music sounds like it has been turned down, the voices sound more clear than they usually do.
Screwtape
-1 because its not widescreen.

Sweet Jeebus, five stars.
When the special edition trilogy hit the theaters, promising 'extended scenes', this is the one part of the whole trilogy I fervently wished for added time. There was a science fiction book which mentioned that movie editing had become a pseudo-career, either condensing films or adding more to them. Personally, I would have added about half an hour to this part alone and loved every minute of it.
Ursa_minor
When I was a little kid and saw the B-wing for the first time, I damn near shit myself. Such a great design for so little screen time.
Banal Intercourse
Yeah, that was the biggest disappointment about this whole thing for me. I wanted to find out what the B-Wing fighter *did* other than look goofy. IIRC, they don't even call it a B-Wing in the movie. You had to wait for Kenner to break the news between commercials on a Saturday morning.

Keefu
I too wish some day to ride a space ship out of an exploding space station someday.
bopeton
Who doesn't, seriously?

Wedge is the only person who got to participate in blowing up two Death Stars. He is the greatest hero of the galaxy, and also has the best hat.
j lzrd / swift idiot
Seriously. Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, fuck those four; one's got daddy issues and a sister who kisses him just to make a point, one's a mercenary getting his mack on with a princess who has fucking Paul Maud'dib for a brother, one was tortured for information by a tag-team of her biological father and a truth-serum-equipped interrogation droid-ball, AND had her adoptive planet blown the fuck up, and that other guy is a wookie.

Meanwhile, fucking WEDGE is off taking care of the business Diplomat Akbar wouldn't dirty his flippers with and those Main Stars Of The Show cocksuckers couldn't be bothered with, putting the stomp down on Grand Admiral Thrawn and generally jetting around fighting legit threats, all quitting the New Republic and straight earning the name Rogue Squadron.

He'll always be Red Leader to me though. <3

The "She gonna blow!" guy has always been my favorite. Too bad he appears for all of two seconds before getting vaporised.

ARGH it's the CGI holocaust edition.
Centennial Ostrich
Wow. They just killed half the black people in their entire fucking galaxy.
FABIO2
"Draw their fire away from the cruisers" apparently means having them miss you and hit the cruisers instead before crashing into them.

Protect the medical frigate! ... In space! .... In case we have to pull the wounded back for first aid!

Everything was better before CGI.
