Stashed in: Star Wars!

<John Simon, a film critic writing for New York Magazine about a hundred years ago in 1983, didn't like the third Star Wars movie, "Return of the Jedi." He went on Nightline with Ted Koppel to explain why he gave the movie such a horrible review.
"I feel they're so bad because they're completely dehumanizing...they are for children or childish adults," Simon said, clearly out of touch with the millions of presumably mature and intelligent adults who had seen the Star Wars movies over the years.>
