I mean everyone's entitled to their opinion, I just happen the have the dissenting opinion when it comes to these things. I think "Star Wars" fans where just so soured on the prequels not being what they wanted them to be that they refused to see the good parts. I also feel that fans have put Empire on such a high pedestal that if any movie that comes after it isn't as good as Empire then it's just bad in their minds. Empire is pretty much a perfect movie and nothing is going to be as good as it, it's an impossibly high standard to hold these movies up to.
