I have no problems with Mark Hamil in New Hope.

I think they were all fine and thank them for some of the most fun I've ever had at the movies.

Here's to them doing it again.

No, you are being defensive. He was awful in every frame. From the Attack of the Clones delivery in the elevator, to his dialogue with Amidala, the sand bit, his ranting....oh, hell, it just goes on and on in that film.

Revenge of the Sith: "you turned her against meee!"

Painful.

"this is the end for you, my master"

Ugghh.

and the worst of all: "i have brought pEEEACE, freedom" bit before the duel. Horrible. It is no wonder his character was so hated.

Obviously you've never seen frame 716.

It brings tears to my eyes every time.

Seriously though, I've gotta agree with Mark Hamill, he wasn't very good in the first film
I disagree. Hamill was the reason anyone cared and bought into the fantasy situation. It was his journey, and people wanted to see where he was going in that first film based on how the role was played.

Contrast that with Hayden Christensen--who had two films as the character making the pivotal journey, but he was awful in every frame, without any sort of growth in either movie.
Hayden Christensen was really the worst. Mark Hamil, over all did well, I just think he had some awkward moments in New Hope.

Re: Worst acting in Star Wars?

The only issue I had with Christensen's performance was his voice--it didn't have enough gravitas for me (Matt Lanter, who plays Anakin in current The Clone Wars cartoon, does, IMO).

Otherwise, I think Christensen's facial expressions were spot on and did cover quite a range of emotions very well. Two key moments that stand out for me--when Anakin confessed to Padme his frustrations following Shimi's death and revealed how he slaughtered the tribe of Sand People in Episode II, and a blink-and-you-miss it moment in Episode III on Coruscant when Anakin and Obi-Wan part ways and we see Anakin's expression turn from light to dark (we see it again when he is reunited with Obi-Wan on Mustafar).

No, that is just silliness. To literally be awful in every frame would be a rare thing indeed. I'll have to assume that statement is not meant to be taken literally.

The muppet Yoda
he's terrible, the new CGI Yoda was silly but in the old he has this long drawn out comical death scene that is just ridiculously bad.
I think some kind of animatronic puppet can work in movies like it did for characters in Labyrinth, E.T, Jurrasic Park, Farscape etc I'm not sure why the Yoda role seems terrible to me, maybe its because not just bad acting but it always felt like some characters were put in movies so Lucas inc could sell more toy action figures
