Quotes

Jeremitt: [after running from the maurader attack with Cindel, Jeremitt finds a hiding spot to rest. He has been hit in the shoulder by a laser blast] Are you all right, sweetheart?
Cindel: Mmm hmm. Mommy, Mace, they're dead.
Jeremitt: I know. But we need to be strong now. You remember the song your mother sings to you about the little bird?
Cindel: [nods] Mmm hmm.
Jeremitt: Well, I'm going to need you to be strong like that little bird. Now, I want you to run, and find Deej, and the Ewoks will help you.

This makes me a sad panda
2 September 2011 | by ProhvetoijaSee all my reviews

Don't bother to look any connection to Star Wars. Movie was lot closer to basic fantasy with few laser guns. Ewoks aren't that brave jungle-tribe they were. Just bunch of glass-eyed fat idiots fooling around. Stuffed replacement for Three Stooges x 10

Effects can't be called special. Harryhausens creatures from early movies are at least on the same level with two-legged lizards in this. Bad guys wear very stiff and lifeless rubber masks

Most disgusting thing in this movie was still main character. I've never hated child actress this much. She looks more like coming from make-up for children's beauty contest then middle of forest. Main point seems to be make her look as cute and clean as possible, and take care she reads all her lines in most annoying childish tone.

After these things pissing me off so much, I don't have any reason to comment about plot or other fails of the movie.
