*** 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

"Control, control, you must learn control!"Disclaimer: As with my critique of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, this review will be in reference to the theatrical cut of The Empire Strikes Back, unless otherwise specified.Surpassing even the most optimistic of expectations in 1977, Star Wars became a phenomenon, earning a mint at the box office and bringing in millions of additional dollars ... 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.

" Notes: It is usually considered as the best installment of this whole saga and, after re-watching the damned thing once again, I believe it really deserves this status. Indeed, even though it still remains a seminal piece of popcorn entertainment, this time, it was quite darker than its predecessor and towards the end, it almost became some kind of Greek tragedy. Indeed, the climax with the duel between Skywalker and Vader has become pretty much the stuff of legends, it is still thrilling aft"

"Continua bom, mas eu acho superestimado, não vi a obra prima que tanto falam. O final do filme todo mundo já conhece, e eu não acho muito interessante ver o Han pilotando por meia hora a nave, então eu achei o filme bom, mas não enxergo aqui a oitava maravilha do mundo."
