Yeah I do but it's on TV right now so I decided to watch.

Jedi by far is my favourite, but I don't think I can argue that Empire isn't better. That Russian director did an excellent job. God I wish he would have done the prequels.

I was afraid I was going to open this thread and see Episode I, II, or III. Thank goodness it was IV, which is the best one IMO.

Funny how the two films that George Lucas didn't direct were the best.

Not really that funny or surprising. He's never shown himself to be a respectable director. Should stick to writing, producing, and effects.

He did write Ep I, II and III which were all atrocious.

American Graffiti is his best film after Ep IV.

Best scene from Empire

Leia looks at Han as he's about to be frozen and says "I love you."

Han just looks back at her like a pimp and says "I know".

:roll: :roll: :roll: :rockon:

Get me 150 million for a budget and I will.

I can certainly write something better than Episode I.

I will not even acknowledge episodes I, II and III as real Star Wars movies. They were flat out awful.

It's interesting to think how good Return of the Jedi could have been if Steven Spielberg would have directed like he was asked to. To me, my favorites are V: The Empire Strikes Back, IV: A New Hope, VI: Return of the Jedi... in that order.

I didn't like I or II but I thought III was ok. Especially the lightsaber battle at the end. I like Return better then Empire because I love the Vader and The Emperor VS Luke Skywalker battle. Empire's my 2nd favourite.

I kind of liked III when it came out but I still can't even say it's anywhere near as good as the original 3. I didn't mind Return of the Jedi at all. I just thought The Empire Strikes Back was the best one. Good directing, good acting (best acting in all 6 movies, IMO). I liked Luke's training, the Empire chasing Han, Chewy, Leia across the galaxy, Cloud City, Lando, Han being frozen in carbonite, Darth Vader revealing himself to be Luke's father.

And as much as I hate The Phantom Menace the actual experience of going to and seeing my first original Star Wars movie at the theatre was awesome. The hype and anticipation for the movie was just unbelievable. I was a freshman in high school and remember it was the first movie I ever had to wait in line two weeks before the movie was released to get tickets. The new action figures being released, all of the talk on the news. It was just really really cool.

There was a documentary on the history channel called star wars: the legacy revealed. I'd advise any star wars fan to watch it. It gives a deeper look into the origins of the story.
