A New Hope (1977, George Lucas)
What IMDB says…
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire’s world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
What I say…
The opening scene is so great! Watching Princess Leia’s ship being attacked by the Star Destroyer. Looks wicked, and the bass nearly shook the clock of the wall.
It is funny to watch the over CGI’d new films and then the first movie made in 1977, although this version had CGI bits added. I didn’t realize until I had started watching that this version was a re-release in the 2000’s. Damn.
Okay, let’s get this out of the way. The sexual tension in this film is crazy, like can R2D2 and C3PO just make out already! Man, they are making everyone feel uncomfortable!
Cloaks! So hot right now, like physically hot, those guys must be boiling! Why not a nice light jacket, or at least a cloak made out of anything other than burlap!? Obi-Wan I am looking at you, this is the desert. Seriously, are you part lizard? Is it because of sand? Like, a burlap cloak is the best thing to keep sand off of you? I obviously do not know futuristic hermit, desert, fashion.
Luke is such a little bitch in this movie, just like his dad! “But I was going to go into town to buy some power converters!” After everything your uncle has done for you? Your birth, Luke, pretty much ruined everything, just saying.
What the hell are Luke and his guardians eating? It looks like curried cat food. Yum.
I got to say, this movie is great! It was groundbreaking when it came out in ’77, and it still is amazing. I definitely think everyone has to watch this movie, even if you don’t watch any of the other ones.
A New Hope gets 5 obviously-into-each-otherdroids making-out out of a possible 5.
