    Yeah, the dialogue is definitely stilted. But I think that's at least partly because Star Wars is designed to be like a lot of popcorn movies and serials from the 40s and 50s. And anytime you watch movies from that period, you'll find that the dialogue is stilted in all of them. Movie acting was very "stagey" until a more naturalistic style of acting took hold in the late 60s. I think Lucas was partly mimicking that style. Of course, I think partly he just isn't as good a writer as he is a director, too

    And just as a disclaimer, I'm not a Star Wars fan at all. I liked the first one a lot, after that they just didn't do anything for me.

    Did you ever see the version "Valmont" and if so what did you think? Just curious.

    A sexy, intelligent film with great costumes. Colin Firth is quite good, Meg Tilly is lovely.

    Yes, I admit to liking the Valmont version better.

    Miyazaki's animated films often have well-developed females--particularly, Nausicaa.

    Also the lead in Mirrormask, directed by Dave McKean & written by Neil Gaiman.

    I'm surprised by this thread, though . . . I expected to find more examples from browsing my DVD shelf.

    No love is wrong as long as it is true.

    Now really Uber, I find it hard to believe that you don't have a favorite female character that you admire for her personality aspects. I know there is a Fi in there striving to get out.
