Star Wars Holiday special

Post by The Fox »

I have just watched this for the first time. It is the worst thing i have ever watched.:shock:

I'm not surprised Mr Lucas wanted to buy all the master copies and burn them! :oops:

I was laughing within 30 seconds of meeting Chewbacca's Family. What the hells all that about. The cartoon part is quite good when you meet Boba Fett.

One thing i found funny was reading some fella's review in IMDM.COM about how he could see how everyone was on Drugs in the 70's after watching this "film". I Thought this was strange until watching the monstrosity for myself :lol:

Star Wars Holiday special

Hey Fox could you believe I distinctly remember watching the Holiday Special in 1978, me being a Star Wars fanatic, and I didn't last ten minutes before turning it off. Even this 13-year old kid couldn't take that level of crappiness.

I did however write a review of it on the IMDB! Having gotten a bootleg many years later of course. So here's a little self-promotion of my utterly meaningless film reviews....

Lots of Godzilla lol!

But how about that Dianne Carroll? Man is she hot! And the things she is saying to Chewbacca's father! The first cybersex!
Big Cyrus. He was gonna run the whole city...what crap that was.

I'm sure George Lucas will release them one of these days. The characters can't be more annoying than Jar Jar Binks.

George Lucas will not even acknowledge that this film exists, let alone release it.

The Holiday Special is important because it does after all, have the first appearance of Boba Fett. And sure enough the Fett sequence from the Special ended up on the Blu-Ray collection!

If Lucas feels he can use some more millions he'll probably eventually put it out. Millions of fans would buy a perfect copy of this, with great commentary and extras.
