Just out of curiosity, when was the earliest any of you encountered the "Return of the Jedi sucks" meme? Be honest! It was 1997 for me, on the internet. I'd never heard anything but kind words for RotJ before then, other than a couple of negative professional critic reviews. For the record, I go back and forth between considering it either the worst or second worst film in the series, but it was my favorite when I was a lot younger.
