Sh!t... I just can't avoid belonging to popular culture and the massive opinion this time. This landmark sci-fi creation is hugely influential, and after re-watching the prequels and dumb films like Serenity, I reckon this is an iconic masterpiece. Who would think Lucas would surpass himself after American Graffiti (1973)? A New Hope certainly gave a new hope on establishing new horizons for the science-fiction genre. 97/100

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...
