This film revamped Science Fiction for all of us. A New Hope was released in 1977 and it changed the way we looked at space forever. I know it came after Star Trek but this saga owns. Star Wars is science fiction for the masses and has an epic following.

A New Hope brings forth the ideals of a young boy who had an ordinary life which was all changed by chance and his destiny was unv... read more

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."

When I first went to the theater with my dad to see Star Wars, I had no idea how much of an impact it would have on my life or on movies themselves.

Every time that I see those words appear on the screen and hear the theme music by John Williams, it brings back those childhood memories. The secret to the success of Star ... read more

Still hugely satisfying and enjoyable

"The Force is strong with this one."Star Wars is so much more than just a movie - it's a cinematic experience; an event picture with the ability to appeal to adults, teenagers and children in equal measure. It's an influential pop culture phenomenon which has become omnipresent over the last four decades, leading to video games, comic books, toy lines, animated television shows, and every type of ... read more

ChihuahuaDaddy's Favorite Movie Dystopias (8 movies items)

"Yes, Star Wars! The whole series. Would you really want to live in the Star Wars universe? Sure, Jar Jar Binks is great for some laughs, but the series is called Star WARS for a reason. Even if there were no war in the galaxy, the Empire would be quite an unpleasant place to live."

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" This is one of those rarefied movies that caused a grave tremor across the entire movie industry, changing forever the way films where marketed and packaged. But there's more to this than characters slapped on lunchboxes. It's easy to call it shallow and naive, but this film is full of innocent heart, and that's what made it fun. Before SW: ANH, sci-fi had become ponderous and pretentious, but Lucas brought the fun and the thrills back into a tired genre, recapturing the heady days of Flash Go"

Best Star Wars Spaceships (POLL) (11 movies items)

"Ship: X-wing Pilots: Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles, Poe Dameron Votes: 15 The Incom T-65 X-wing is the fighter that killed the Death Star. Boasting an almost perfect balance of speed, maneuverability and defensive shielding, this is the fighter of choice for the Rebel Alliance. In the later years, newer models of the X-wing would be produced and handled by the Alliance's successor, the Resistance."

The Star Wars Films - Best to Worst (8 movies items)

"The Phantom Menace is what got me into the franchise. But it was this along with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy are what got me into movies in general. Worst Special Edition Changes: *The CGI rocks in front of R2-D2 *Obi-Wan's Kyrat Dragon call to scare off the Tusken Raiders (Sand People) *The highly distracting and severely dated CGI additions to Mos Eisley *Greedo shooting first *The scene between Han Solo and Jabba the Hutt"

"Probably would be higher if I was alive in 1977 when it first came out, but the acting left a lot to be desired. Still, there would be no Star Wars without it."
