'Empire Strikes Back' Finally Gets an Honest Trailer
Empire Strikes Back. Without a doubt, it's the worst Star Wars movie ever made. Its name alone conjures up images of terrible sequels, boring storylines, laughable dialogue, forgettable characters - relax, I'm only kidding. The crown jewel of the Star Wars empire, Empire is considered by many to be one of the greatest films ever made, so we were a little surprised to hear that Screen Junkies had made an Honest Trailer skewering it. But after watching the video, it turns out we had nothing to worry about.

Even the movie's Honest Trailer has a hard time finding anything wrong with it. The best nitpicks they can come up with are that the characters don't always pronounce Han Solo's name the same way, Han likes to point at stuff, and Luke "loses a fight against slow-moving furniture." After having a tough time finding things to complain about, the narrator describes the film as "the Star Wars movie that's so good, they barely touched it in the special editions." They also throw some shade at both the prequels and The Force Awakens, and even manages to squeeze in a reference to this video from a couple weeks ago that quickly became the stuff of legend.

So check out the trailer below, and remember a time when there was no controversy involved in liking a new Star Wars movie.
