Movie Review: "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope"

So I've decided to re-watch the Star Wars series in its entirety... well, almost entirely.

I'm doing them in the Machete Order, which goes as follows:

  1. Episode 4 - A New Hope
  2. Episode 5 - The Empire Strikes Back
  3. Episode 2 - Attack of the Clones
  4. Episode 3 - Revenge of the Sith
  5. Episode 6 - Return of the Jedi
Yes it's only 5 of the 6 movies, with Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace (QBF Rating 3.0/5) getting the shaft for a number of reasons (e.g. Jar Jar Binks and a crappy plot) despite it having the best fight sequence in my opinion with Darth Maul.

Now back to the original that started it all... A New Hope!

It was really cool watching it again, even if the Special Edition made a particular change NO ONE WANTED (Han shot first!).

I felt like a kid again, experiencing the sadness, exhilaration and dread as our heroes (Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and Obi-Wan/Ben Kenobi) struggled against Darth Vader and The Empire.


QBF Rating: 4.5/5
