It never did much for me, can't really put my finger on it though. It's a great movie, but compared to most of the other Star Wars films it doesn't stand out as much.

I did grow up watching Star Wars and ROTJ, and didn't see Empire until years later so that may have something to do with it. I didn't watch ESB much as a child.

So your childhood determines the likeability of a movie?

You could say it's nostalgic. If I enjoyed watching a movie or a TV show as a child I seem to enjoy it as an adult, where as some other movies my friends enjoyed as children that I never watches, don't seem as appealing to me when I see them.

Maybe that's why I enjoyed the prequel and original trilogy. I grew up watching both of them. big grin

I grew up to an extent with the Prequel trilogy. I liked it once, long ago. Put RotS at the top of the list too.


But then I developed a sense of discernment and the ability to judge films based on more than just nostalgic appeal/"ooh look at the lightsabers!"

When I was a kid Empire was not my favorite. But it became my favorite when it came out on video and I got to rematch them. I value it because it's the best told story of them all, is the most balanced story, has the best character development and the best performances from the actors. Just about everything is darn perfect on this one.

ANH is great but has cringe moments (like Toshi Station or the condo between Han en Luke after escaping the DS), ROTJ has the best opening and great scenes with Luke, Vader and the Emperor, but Ford is not great here, Fisher has a couple is extremely clumsy scenes and then there's the Ewoks.

When I was a kid, Empire was my favorite because of the AT-ATs. Period. I didn't care about Luke and his father, Han falling for Leia, C3PO getting blown apart.. those M$%#&@ F$^#%@ AT-ATs were insane on the big screen!

Many movies made around 1980 were so awesome for kids; ET, ESB, Blade Runner, Tron, The Black Hole, Superman, ST:Wrath of Khan, Raiders of the Lost Ark... just a great time to be a kid.

First time I've seen someone other than myself feel the same way.

However, I will acknowledge that from a production standpoint itself, it was the best developed.

Aside from that, I just think it's good. Never quite placed ESB on the golden pedestal everyone else has. Aside from the last 30 minutes or so I don't find it to be very entertaining at all.

There was a time in the 90's where ESB wasn't as iconic as it is today.

The release of TPM had a lot to do with that, because people realized TPM had Jar Jar, ROTJ had Ewoks...and oh yeah, I guess the last real mature one was "ESB."

Fun fact, when ESB was first released, it received very mixed reviews. Amazing how time changes one's perception on things.

Indeed. But to be frank, it IS the best. Best acted, best directed, best storyline, best drama, best music. SW never got better than ESB.

Oooh... III on second place... that is daring.

And I do think ROTJ deserves a better spot than the outright horrible EPII... wink

I thought episode 1 was pretty cool
much the same reason I like 5.
They have some really original planets. I also loved the game of TPM.

My friends say the prequels are bad because of reviews they read. Happy Dance

Oh I thought it was because they are boring, narratively flawed and sometimes horribly acted.

What? No way! People who have negative opinions of the Prequels are only just copying the sentiment of reviews. That fact negates their criticism.
