Part 2 of my re-watching the Star Wars series in the Machete Order was Episode 5. After getting their asses kicked (and their spiffy new space station destroyed) by a rookie pilot (Luke Skywalker), a smuggler, and a pretty princess, Darth Vader is on the warpath!
Running for their lives, our young heroes learn what happens when The Empire Strikes Back!
Easily my most favourite episode in the series because of all the excellent lines, the darker tone, and quite a bit of screen time for Darth Vader, this was still an AWESOME experience.
QBF Rating: 4.5/5
