In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is the Top 10:
#3: Boba Fett
Boba Fett doesn’t say much in the movies. He doesn’t have much screen time or isn’t a major character. In fact, his name is never said in The Empire Strikes Back. But, he is extremely memorable. Just look at his costume and you know he has seen some action. Tasked with hunting down the Millennium Falcon, Fett wastes no time in following them to Cloud City, with no disintegrations of course. I feel there is a similarity between him and Clint Eastwood’s ‘Man With No Name’ character. They both are bounty hunters, they both are men of few words, their actions define their character and they are both a couple of my favorite characters in film history. There has been a lot of expanded universe stories about him, some good, some not so much. I always liked the comic book stories with him (surprise, surprise). One thing I do NOT like about him is his death. Going out as a burp joke isn’t very fitting. But, he lives on in my (and many others) minds as the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy!
