AFI screws Star Wars again

AFI had a list of the top movie quotes of all time on a TV show tonight. "May the Force Be With You," which should have been in the top 3, was number 8, beaten by such winners as "I'm ready for my close-up," and "I could've been a contender." I knew that MTFBWY wouldn't be as high as it should have been, because AFI screwed Star Wars in the Top 50 Movie Heroes list it had two years ago, when it had Han Solo and Obi-Wan Kenobi in the top 50 heroes list, but not Luke Skywalker!! (I wrote about it quite a bit in my June 3, 2003 column.) So, bottom line...AFI sucks.
