Every once in a while, Brow Beat pays tribute to a landmark film by encapsulating it in three animated GIFs. For this special installment for the Slate Reader Takeover, you selected the movie.

Or, as it turned out, movies: You wanted to see the whole Star Wars trilogy in just three short snippets. We did our best, and we make no excuses for our selections. As a Jedi Master once said, “Do, or do not. There is no try.”
