*** This review contains spoilers ***The Empire Strikes Back is my least favourite of the original trilogy, I guess I just prefer the more light hearted nature of A New Hope and Return of the Jedi (plus when has darkness become a measure of quality?), as well as the sense of closure given by those films but calling it my least favourite is like saying this pizza with 19 slices of pepperoni is it n... read more

Movie Reviews (151-200) (50 movies items)

" The best edited "Star Wars" and the one with the fastest pace. In this one all becomes a little darker, more dangerous and it is full of space opera revelations that gets ruined if you have been dumb enough to see the new prequel series first. Excellent light saber duel between Luke and Vader that end with losing of a limb. Yoda is a fun parody of Japanese Samurai mentors and a great puppet creation. Leaving fan favorite Han Solo in a cliffhanger ending for the next chapter is a cruel blow that"
