The Empire Strikes back was one of the most impressive movies of the first trilogy.


although I love all of the movies of the first trilogy!


But you know...in the second movie there's so much told about the force...in no other movie the relationship between master and padawan and the teaching of the force is so detailed than in The Empire strikes back. That is cool

I love ESB but I love RotJ that little bit more, the Special Edition ending was cool, and I loved the Saber duel and watching Anakin come back to the light.

A New Hope, but ROTJ is a VERY close second.
I never liked ESB as much as the other two but I still ike it a lot, and a lot more than any other movie I've ever seen. (Han gets frozen! Oh no!)

Personally I think the Dagobah scenes bring ESB down, they spend way too much time there and I find it boring at times, but thats just me....

...I don't dislike RotJ as much as rad-x... but I certainly think it's inferior to the other movies. It would have been much better if Lucas could have set the final battle on and over Imperial City as he originally intended

So... my favorite of the OT is ESB. The atmosphere of ESB is just haunting, and I've gotta think Lucas will be shooting for that same feeling in Episode III.

I chose Empire (as we teenagers called it 24 years ago ), but truly love all of them. All but TPM are definitely in my all-time top 20 movies.

Star Wars - I still remember the opening crawl, which I thought was cool and immediately engaging. So many movies before and since just have opening credits you kind of half-watch. This had no credits - just story. You took immediate notice. Then a ship under attack. Fine looked good but we'd seen such things, so it was just an interesting start. So now we get the attacking ship ... this thing is big ... um really big ... is this thing ever going to end?!? Wow - that just set everything going ...

Empire - if Star Wars was a classic tale of the rise of a hero of good to defeat evil, then Empire is the classic second act, in which we realize that evil is not defeated, just set back. The large battle happens at the beginning of the movie - again unprecedented before and since. The rest is the small action, big story, glory ... and you really had to have been there for *the* line ...

RotJ - at 17 I was getting a bit old, very busy with so much activity, so I probably only saw Jedi a half-dozen times in '83 The final lightsaber duel between Luke and Vader, *that music* ... it was such a great flick. I had no problem with Ewoks (nor Gungans, for that matter), but was disappointed with Han's role, as comic relief (like C3PO on Geonosis). However, the difficulty of having a main character become sidelined now looks prescient of the roles of non-Jedi in a Jedi world in the prequels.

And ... as I've said elsewhere, if I had to choose favorite overall, it would be AotC. So sue me ... Lucas hasn't raped my childhood

Seriously - I *didn't* notice, but with the OT DVD arriving, it doesn't seem inappropriate.

BTW - check your calendar, it was only 9 months since the last thread posting ...

*puts on Mod hat*

the way i understand it is, there's nothing wrong with bumping old threads if you have something to add to the topic.
the bumping of old threads is only frowned upon if people do it for the sole reason of bringing threads to the top of the page. i.e. the infamous 'bump!' post.
it is also frowned upon if people post in old thread with such things as 'i agree!' or something spammy, i.e. not contributing.

i may be wrong, i'm sure if i am one of the other mods will correct me if i am.

ROTJ is by far the best OT, and it is narrowly the best SW movie(ahead of AOTC), although AOTC and ROTJ are compareable

But EP3 isn't part of the OT, and Luke isn't even in it, or Luke is just a baby.

On Topic: My favorite is TESB, it's darker tone, the battle of Hoth, Vader choking Imperial Officers to death like some people eat M&M's, and the fact the Falcon was broke through most of it, was just classic.

Though all 3 are really good, TESB just stands out a little more.

I think he was talking about ROTJ, because it was the third episode of the first three movies.

My favorite is ROTJ. It has some really dramatic scences I really like. Like the battle of Endor, The scenes between Han, Leia, and Luke while they are in the Ewok village, and of course Th lightsaber fight and the scene with Yoda. I can tell ESB is a better made film but I still think ROTJ is my favorite except for that last ghost scene when they replace Sebastian Shaw with Hayden Christiansen. That bugged me like hell. Shaw looked like a better Anakin.

All around in movie aspects such as plot, characters, setting, and more, ESB takes the crown as my favorite, but all of the movies were almost equally great. Since ANH was the first of the awesome trilogy, it can be cut some slack; it was an experiment at the time. RotJ was a great closure for the series, but I always felt it was too quick with Jabba's Palace. Jabba was a PIMP! They should have elaborated with more scenes of aliens at the place and more stuff happening.

Still, the series, IMO, are the best movies ever, based on the time period they were made, how they were made, and what content they have.

I don't know how you can choose only one movie ... This is a trilogy none of the movies could be seen without seeing he others ... so many elements would be missing. It is a complete story and a master piece IMO.

I love them all. Can get tired of watching them again and again.

All hail SW!!!


The Force is with you, Star Wars fan, but you are not a Jedi yet.

Star Wars fan, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.

I liked the saber duel in ESB best (besides Luke getting his butt kicked), but I liked ROTJ (minus Ewoks) better overall. Of course, ESB has a lot of going for it, so that helps a little. Overall, however, I'd take ROTJ as my fav.

Empire strikes back

But Im hanging out for ROTS


For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained! A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.
This one....a long time have I watched. Never his mind on where he was. Hmmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi craves not these things.

You are reckless!
