Wahooo for Star Wars!

Star Wars Lover (10 out of 10 )
The 2nd best movie in the star wars series. I love how George writes his scripts. I'd give you a 20 out of 10 but I can't. I love the beginning, how they have the camera angle under the ship and they show the imperial shuttle and 2 tie fighters come out of the hanger. For all of the star wars movies I love the light saber effect.

Luke Skywalker (10 out of 10 )
I agree with Star Wars Lover. I'd exceed the limit on the star rating - but it's impossible. One of my favourites in the series! A brilliant script, thanks to the infamous George Lucas who gave us a brilliant movie.

I want to sleep with Jabba.

It's Star Wars. You can't get better than this.

Does anyone else cry when Anakin/Darth Vader dies?

Ben (10 out of 10 )
Dope! It's Star Wars, it can't be less than a 10. Wedge Antilles is the only person to pilot a starfighter in the attack on BOTH Death Stars. Best pilot in the universe.

This is a great film! I like Empire Strikes back as a better written film. But this movie should have won an academy award for best visual effects or at least should have been nominated because they were great. Another star wars blockbuster attracts fans.

I liked how they put Hayden Christensen in the new version at the end when Darth Vaders/Anakins ghost comes back. Like Stars Wars Lover said I think it is the second best of all six movies.

Janetnaz (10 out of 10 )
The six Star Wars are THE best movies EVER made. I can't decide whiom I LOVE more Anakin, Luke, or Han. Anybody (including the critics) who didn't like Hayden Christensen as Anakin is CLUELESS. He played the teenage Anakin in the 2nd movie perfectly... A self-conscious, unsure of himself young man in love with an older woman. In Revenge of the Sith he was awesome, and captured the essence of Luke in Return of the Jedi. You could truly believe that the two actors were related. Plus, there's nothing more I can say about Ewen McGregor. I like Obi-Wan well enough in A New Hope, but in the prequels he was totally HOT.

Ivan the Terrible (9 out of 10 )
Truly superb filmmaking. Yet, a common issue in all of the Star Wars films is dialogue: sometimes, Lucas is very bland and weak in the way he wants to tell his stories (the worst was in Episode II). But still, a great movie: dazzling effects for its time, well paced action scenes (particularly the speeder bike chase), and the dramatic tensions between Luke and his father, Darth Vader.

Silver (10 out of 10 )
I loved this movie! Does anyone know where I can read the book online? There isn't a library nearby that carries it.

Anakin (10 out of 10 )
I disagree with Ivan the Terrible. I believe the best part of Star Wars is dialogue. I think the Star Wars is the greatest screenplay of all. I also don't believe that Episode II had bad dialogue. I though it was one of the best.

Zach (10 out of 10 )
I agree with Anakin and Janetnaz: Dialogue is the best in Star Wars and Hayden Christensen was the best Anakin actor next to James Earl Jones. This is one of the best Star Wars films. The prequels just made this film even better, as did the Expanded Universe.

Ubinix-II (10 out of 10 )
Excellent philosophy, the sextet (i-vi) is the most fulfilling movie set in my collection and I always go back to it after a while. Watching for the umm... I think twentieth time. Agree with Janetnaz I do, best ever movie series made in history.

Johat Buwoo (10 out of 10 )
What a thrilling script. Loved reading through it and being able to see the corresponding scene play out in my mind as I read along. Also, I found it extremely interesting that Owen was originally planned to be Obi-wan's brother, rather than Anakin's 1/2 brother.
