STAR WARS (original trilogy) recap
Star Wars: An anti-social religious fanatic tries to talk a naive farm boy into patricide. On the way, they do untold damage to the military-industrial complex by destroying the universes most advanced space station but ultimately fail.
Empire Strikes Back: When an assassin turns out to be his son a government official manages to disarm the boy, while simultaneously capturing a group of mass-murdering insurgents.
Return of the Jedi: The young farm boy has come to understand his attraction for his sister, and now mind-rapes people. The solitary hope for an almost extinct religion puts himself and his sister at risk to rescue a smuggler from a crime-lord and then teams up with cannibalistic teddy bears to destroy (for a second time) the universe’s most advanced space station.
Update: Colbert also explains it quite well.
