Dumb dialogue? Maybe, but if your barometer for horrible acting is the original trilogy, then you clearly have no idea what bad acting is.
It's not my barometer, no. It's not my "go-to example" of bad acting, but it still has bad acting, mostly in the form of Hamill and Fisher. There's a reason only Ford went on to become big in mmostly out of films. tovies.
Not true. Fisher was in these "classic" movies:
The Blues Brothers,
Hannah and Her Sisters
When Harry Met Sally
She's been in many other films and TV appearances. I believe she has also written 4 novels. Also, keep in mind that Fisher has had drug problems and bipolar disorder.
As for Hamill, it's true, he has been as prolific as other actors such as Ford. However, he has been successful in many ways. By the way, Hamill won two Saturn awards for best actor in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. When people say "Hamill was such a bad actor..." I want you to tell me exactly how was he a bad actor? Sure, some of the lines in the original trilogy were corny, but so what? It's a fantasy movie not a drama or documentary. It's not supposed to be gritty. Also, the fact that Hamill won awards by critics for his acting in the original trilogy points to the fact he is a good actor, despite what I consider unsubstantiated comments to the contrary.
