There was a Dark Horse comic series that was basically Star Wars What If?. The third story they told had Threepio get destroyed at Jabba's Palace and without him the Ewoks killed the Rebel force sent down to the forest moon. Also:Everybody is quick to assume that storm troopers are terrible because of how easily Ewoks defeat them in the finale, nobody stops to consider that Ewoks are terrifying killing machines
There was and what's worse is apparently the MST3k did so well, it inspired the sequel.Today, I watched the 1988 movie Hobgoblins. As far as I know, it is a poor-mans Gremlins. The budget was 1500 dollar, which should tell you everything you need to know. The hobgoblins are there, but also kind of not, stuff happens kind of arbitrarily (me and my friend had some trouble following what was happening). There is also an appearance of a band in the middle of the movie, whose name I forgot, but who created music until 2013, so that's something.
The twist to the formular is, that (aside from the hobgoblins being aliens) they can make your deep desires come true. If you are curious, the deepest desires of the men is to have sex or be violent, and the women just want sex. There is a weird scene, where the protagonist and his friend take up brooms and use them like bat'leths, for a pretty long fight scene. The protagonist loses, and is critizised for his weakness by his girlfriend, while the friend and his girlfriend have sex in the van of said friend (the van is shaking, you see).
I dunno, it's a very bad movie, but also pretty entertaining. It's actually used in an episode of MST3K, so I guess some people here have already seen it.

Obviously you have not seen the greatest of all Star Wars movies, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, which answers that very question.I've been horrified since I first saw the Ewoks create swinging, crushing log traps, rolling log traps, and catapults, and I'll keep mentioning it every time it comes up.
And it's neither small logs, nor just a few logs--its whole tree trunks! Exactly WHAT do Ewoks fight on the regular to be able to rig those?
I really liked the first Hobbit movie as well. That movie made the Mirkwood, Necromancer, and Suaron relationship clear to me. I read the Hobbit and LOTR in middle school and that relationship slipped my radar when I was reading it. I liked that aspect of the Hobbit a lot.Yeah, I really liked the first Hobbit movie, though you could see the seeds of the problems the latter movies had in it. The only one I have a real problem with is the third; the middle one is like half delight and half slog. Bilbo tangling with Smaug is fun, as is some of the stuff in Lake-town.
At what personal cost, though? I don't think I've seen a single picture of him during production of Thorin: A Thorin's Thorin Tale of Thorin (Guest Starring: A Hobbit), where he doesn't look utterly miserable.The fact the studio got watchable films out of the situation at all speaks to Jackson's skill as a film maker.
The Mirkwood scenes are in the second movie.
Everyone else too, for that matter. Everything I've seen suggests that that entire trilogy is the work of a whole bunch of people having an absolutely miserable time and wanting it to be over already.At what personal cost, though?
