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

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
