*** 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

I enjoy this one more than A New Hope

“So much amazing action and beautiful cinematography makes for such an enlightening experience! In The Empire Strikes Back you know who everyone is which is great plus Yoda is introduced! I love this movie the music is soothing, there's romance, more of Darth Vader, and introduces Emperor Palpatine what more can you ask for? A lot to relish and get excited about; it's such a classic gem.” read more

“I enjoy the other Star Wars films (except Phantom Menace, the worst of them!) But this is the GREATEST of the Star Wars nine films. Not only alot of action and memorable moments in here. But the #1 shocking reveal in Movie History, "I am your father" Years later, it even shocked James Earl Jones.” read more

Film Students Required Viewing (16 movies items)

"Consider this as an assignment to watch the trilogy. That is, the original Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983). But at the very least watch this one and grade yourself with a C. Data shows that this is the favorite, and possibly the most popular and successful film of the 1980s decade. Compare this one to the others in the trilogy. Write why you agree or disagree on it's superiority. Do not write your opinion from memory. Actually sit down and re-watch "

"Tiene buenas ideas y twists, además de que es la película que le da más protagonismo a Vader y la que lo desarrolla mejor, pero la ejecución de muchas cosas es bastante cuestionable y es donde Star Wars empezó a abusar descaradamente de la fuerza para mover la trama, sin mencionar que el final es anti-climático, conveniente e insatisfactorio. "
