As others have said, it's more about setting and the script of the movies that dates them. Movies that depict alot of trendy fashion, short lived pop culture references, and trendy "lingo" are far...

The issue is not with action happening, that's absolutely fine. It's the action that happens to only one person that's the problem. Only Ray knows how to fix a solenoid. Apparently only Ray makes it...

That's fine. I don't think anyone is complaining of that. The problem is the sell. We've been using Indy and Die Hard, but maybe ID4 is a better example. It's a hero/action movie and Will Smith is...

In this country the numer of shotguns and rifles is almost double that of handguns. The total number of firearms is just under one for every person, but owned by about one in five people. We see two...

First of all let me say I enjoyed watching the movie alot. It wasn't until later after I had absorbed the experience when the whole thing began to crumble. To me that's the sign of a Hollywood...

The thing that pisses me off is when people won't even watch a movie but will argue against it. That's the only time I'll really fight for one(outside of the internet that is). For example, I know...

Which if course makes you wonder...is it really there, or is it that you're wanting to see it? I haven't rewatched it myself, I think I'll do that tonight. I seriously doubt Lucas was directing...

It's very likely that other Jedi know how to use Force Lightening, but using it is an act of the dark side. Just like the telekinesis that's used to choke people. Yoda just seems to be the only one...
