Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Note: For those grabbing torches and pitchforks, I am giving Empire a good rating. I know here is where people will get upset with me as many want to rank Empire as #1, but it just doesn’t belong there. Yes, the cinematography is a little better, but it was good in Star Wars {A New Hope}. Yes, the acting

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)

It all started here. It was all new. I’d never seen anything like this before and it was breathtaking. The first scene, with the rebel ship flying overhead followed by the star destroyer, is amazing and has never been equaled. Star Wars took old stories and myths and icons, tossed them into a sandy blender,

But those descendants have now become stagnant as well. In early 2001 (though earlier in the sequels), another
