I think it is a kind of movie to watch for many reasons: the story have some ideas about the future where the technology would be so evolved, the orchestra soundtracks is awesome, good actors performances, scenes effects and quite funny develops.

Despite how expansive and intricate the Star Wars universe has become, the original film will always hold an inimitable spirit of adventure and freshness. From the introduction of such iconic characters as Darth Vader and Han Solo to its use of practical effects and models to create some of the more exciting action sequences, Star Wars still holds up as an exciting, sometimes funny, and always entertaining sci-fi epic. This is the franchise at its most unadulterated - before it got bogged down by too much CGI and alien races.

Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is the best! Why?

Don't get me wrong, empire strikes back is one of the most impactful and deep and greatest films ever made. I like return of the Jedi too! However, if you look at each movie as a whole, Star Wars 1977 has the most coherent closure, direction, and sensibility. While every Star Wars movie has flaws, a new hope has the least while Jedi has the most (out of the OT of course). I will begin with Star Wars 1977's biggest flaw, which is the design of the Death Star. That design makes no sense at all, however the rebellion would not have been able to achieve victory for the first time against the empire. Now in empire, the largest flaws, I am afraid to say, are the teachings of Yoda. I love Yoda as a character, but not as a mentor to Luke. To explain, Yoda tells Luke in degobah that if you let ang...

Star Wars

"Star Wars" practically invented the blockbuster film and is, to this day, one of the finest examples of escapist entertainment ever made. It's the perfect conglomeration of a multitude of genres, blended together to make something completely original and groundbreaking.

George Lucas and his team created an entirely new universe that feels authentic and lived-in, full of history and compelling characters who have become icons in the history of film. "Star Wars" is as fun and light-hearted as any film in the action/adventure genre but it's the underlying depth, which permeates the story, that turns it into something more - something transcendent.

The imagination behind the film's visuals (which hold up remarkably well today) is unprecedented and the legendary score by John Williams...

I've already said too much

I'm not going to spend a bunch of time opining about this film. Already too much ink has been spilled about this fan favorite.

Just a few things, this film was really the end of an era for American film that started in roughly 1967 (The Graduate, In the Heat of the Night, Bonnie and Clyde) and ended here. It also was the beginning of the "Blockbuster" era. Which I believe to not necessarily be a good thing. In fact, if you've read my reviews about recent films, I'm pretty sick of them at this point. Some might point to Jaws in 1975 but this was much bigger.

Secondly, this film along with a few others (Ghosbusters, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Return of the Jedi [yes I purposefully am leaving out Empire, it was years later before I saw that one], and others) t...
