The man who directed the greatest Star Wars movie ever has left us.

Irvin Kershner has gone and left us. First Leslie Neilsen, and now this.

In an odd coincidence, I caught myself watching Empire Strikes Back last night on Spike. Sure, I watched it commercial free about a month ago (while my wife was at her bachelorette party) but it was on, and I have to watch it whenever it's on. It truly is a great film.

The last film Kershner directed was Robocop 2, which isn't anywhere near as good as Empire, or the original Robocop, but it has a strange perverse weirdness to it that makes it worth watching.

Movieline has an awesome tribute article that can express things far more eloquently than I can.
