During the 124 days before the release of The Last Jedi, I’m reviewing all 124 minutes of the theatrical version of
The Empire Strikes Back. Join me and together we will watch Star Wars….
The 18th Minute of Empire is a rough moment for everyone involved. It's not Game of Thrones brother/sister aunt/nephew translator/eunuch weird but this is supposed to be Luke's moment and Han and Leia totally hijack it with their gross relationship issues. The Empire hasn't even showed up yet and nobody in the room is having a good time.
Except for the medic droid...
He's really into this...
Anyway, Leia realizes her insults aren't working on Han so she does what any normal person would do - kiss the other human in the room. And Luke's the only person who's into it.
But why is Threepio not into this...?
Probably because the princess isn't just in a love triangle. She's in a love QUADRILATERAL!!!
Best Performance by a Human: Han's smugness.
Best Performance by a Non-human: C-3P0's quadruple take.
Best Line: Leia's "Why you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder!"
Rating: 5.9 million out of 6 million forms of communication.
Stay tuned for Minute 19:00 to find out how to lose a probe droid in 19 minutes.
