Symptom 50: Star Wars A New Hope - Flawed Perfection

The Last Jedi has been released to a wave of controversy. Some fans love it, some fans hate it. Of course critics have reviewed the film with a fine toothed comb and are quick to point out all its flaws. The thing is, flaws don't make a movie bad. This week is not about The Last Jedi - this week looks at Episode 4 - A New Hope, which is my favorite Star Wars movie and one of my favorite movies period. To prove that even movies that most fans think are great, and most fans think ANH is one of the best after Empire, I am going to point out some the cringe worthy ugliness in A New Hope - and at the same time tell you why it does not matter. Movies have flaws, that's not what matters, what matters is - did you enjoy the movie.
