*The* Perfect Sequel

Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back was released in 1980, three years after its overwhelmingly successful predecessor.

To say The Empire Strikes Back does justice to A New Hope is a massive understatement as this film ups the ante in every way possible. Longer and better battles (such as the immaculate Battle of Hoth), a much darker and more mature plot with one of the most memorable (and quoted) twists of all time, AT-AT walkers, the introduction of Yoda are some of the reasons why Empire Strikes Back is the perfect sequel.

Unlike A New Hope, this film was not directed by George Lucas but Irvin Kershner and to give credit where credit is due he did just as good of a job. Kershner also manages to get the best possible performances out of his cast, especially Hamill whose character changed drastically since the last film. We also see more of Vader and his deranged and almost animalistic character which is again perfectly displayed by James Earl Jones's vocals.

Empire Strikes Back truly is the perfect sequel as it flourishes on George Lucas's elements as well as bringing in many more of its own in great succession.

Final Grade - 9+/10

Best of the best

I cannot believe some people out there didn't like this film, yet claim to have enjoyed Episode One. No comparison whatsoever. "The Empire Strike Back" is George Lucas' best contribution to human history, and it will be remembered long after most other science fiction films have gone the way of the Do-Do Bird. The optical effects still stand the test of time, and the acting is superb. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamil and Carrie Fisher are all better than they we in the original Star Wars, having fully developed and grown into their characters, and the story just keeps going and going, from asteroid fields to swamp planets to cities in the sky, everything in this film works. So ignore anyone who claims to dislike it, and see it for yourself if you haven't already done so. 20 out of 10!!

Oh, and Han Solo shot first! =)

Greatest Movie Ever

This film changed the game forever. The people behind the scenes took an exciting science fiction adventure film with a happy tone where the heroes have a happy tone throughout and throwing that on its side. Throughout the film the rebels are in a constant rush and panic, pushing the viewers to the edge of their seat wondering if the heroes would make it to the end okay. This is done brilliantly by splitting up the heroes putting them in a worried state for one another. As well as that the rebels are all tested as they go through their own personal trails and try to find their way through. Even though this might put you on a constant worry for the characters the movie is paced perfectly with breathers and amazing storytelling by the characters to fill in anything we need answers for. That is just the story, the film also has gorgeous cinematography, going from the AT-ATs on Hoth, to the Imperial pursuit of the Falcon through the asteroid field, all the way down to the beautiful shots of the final battle in Cloud city. Even though we as viewers are worried for the rebels, the imagery is jaw dropping. The imagery is further enhanced by the most popular score of all time, John Williams delivers his best work ever as it has stuck with people their entire lives and is recognizable by even those who haven't seen the film. The film was released in 1980 and all of the set design and special effects still hold up to this day as they are just as convincing now as it was apon first watch for everyone in the past 38 years.
