*** 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

Star Wars Films: The Good and the Bad (9 movies items)

" THE GOOD: Great plot, including plot twists. There is also a great lightsaber battle . . . . and there's Yoda! THE BAD: If I remember correctly, it is a little too stretched out. Maybe it could have used more editing. OVERALL: Another kick-ass Star Wars film!"

My Top 10 Superior Sequels (10 movies items)

"The original Star Wars (no, I'm not going to call it Episode IV – A New Hope!) is basically a classic adventure story brought into space. Much like Last Crusade did with Raiders, Empire Strikes Back surpasses it by coming up with a much more intriguing story. It's divided into two parallel plotlines: Luke gets much deeper into his Jedi training, while his friends are chased by the Empire. The scope of the movie is just huge, and every single character and location leaves an impression. But wha"
