i liked empire the best because so much shit happened at once. the rebel base was destroyed, luke received training from a master, the death star was rebuilt, han solo gets frozen, luke finds out that vadar is is father. now that's entertainment! and no fucking metacloriens to be seen...
It's mitichlorians(like mitochondria) keep it up...you'll lose serious nerd status.
Well the sheer impact of A New Hope on me as a 9yr old squid is impossible to underestimate. It was the first(and Paint will argue the last) film I was able to discuss intelligently. I remember distinctly sitting at my uncle's table holding forth to the grown ups on the plot and explaining "the Force" to them.
It was the first film I saw that was made for me without being silly and overly cartoonish. It was a 'real' movie but spoke directly to my generation. It was our mythology.
As a grown up I like Empire better for all the reason's Morg said. It is, I think, the best of the films so far. Jedi and Phantom menace could have been better but...Lucas kinda sold us out.
i'm going for return of the jedi, because i was a weird kid and refused to like anything that was weak. this applies because luke was a pansy in the first two, and an asskicking jedi in the return of such.
i really want to see the next two, though. episode 1 sucked, but unless there's some sort of pod-race rematch these ones should be good.
I was 13 and saw it in the largest and most sophisticated theater in St. Louis at the time.
The opening when you see the princess's ship and being dwarfed by this huge empire ship chasing it! I don't know...it was almost magical.
I'm not saying it was the best episode.... but it did leave an impression.
BTW...I agree that episode 1 ( the phantom menace ) sucked badly... die jar-jar!
quote:Originally posted by opus Dude,luke fought darth fuckin vader in empire and got his hand chopped off,he couldn't have been that much of a pansy.
if he wasn't a pansy, he's still have that hand.
upon reflection, he didn't exactly kick darth ass in jedi, either. there wasn't much fighting before the emperor started shooting out the lightning and shit.
ah well. i just like lightsabres and x-wings. the rest of the movies never did much for me.
