The remastered scene additions can sometimes be a bit much...

Normally when I review a film or book, I try to include a short summary about what the film is about. However, for STAR WARS I'm not going to do that. STAR WARS (and even though it is often marketed as A NEW HOPE, the film is called STAR WARS) is my favorite movie of all time. I saw the movie for the first time during one of the times it was initially re-released in the late 1970s. We were going to see one of the LOVE BUG pictures that were out at the time, but that was sold out so my family …

You have to put yourself in my shoes.  It is the summer of 1977.  I am just about to turn 14.  The best science fiction I  have seen is Star Trek.  The Disney abomination "The Black Hole" is about to go into theaters and will be described as "revolutionary".  So just imagine how startling this movie was back then.      Here is the setting. I am on an exchange trip to Idaho working on a Sunflower farm for two weeks.  Every …

Memories of college days... I couldn't wait to share these movies with my kids, though they thought the special effects were dated. Hey, there's a story too, and that never gets old.

It's hard to believe the merchandising juggernaut that is the Star Wars franchise started with this masterpiece. Continue to harang George Lucas to put out genuine 1977 versions of the film and not the kid friendly and obnoxious with it's additions Special Editions.

I love Star Wars.  Yeah, hardly an orginal statement but really I do.  The original movie, after seeing endless merchandising, satirizations and parodies, in jokes, Seth McFarlane and Kevin Smith-I can still turn on this movie and from it's opening scene have all that pollution go away and remember that this movie was and still is something special.      The classic battle of good and evil, a young man having his place in the galaxy, colorful rouges, beautiful princesses, …

I've never been quite sure why so many people are complaining about the revisions to the original version of A New Hope. It's a great movie, but it came out in an era when people didn't have home video players (much less DVDs). Lucas cleaned up the movies, made the ships more realistic, and generally most of the improvements make the film look better. I agree that I wish Lucas didn't mess with the Greedo scene - I still believe Han shot first. However, that's relatively minor. Don't let that ruin …

In 1976 a young director named George Lucas had a vision for a movie.  A movie no one thought would get off the ground at all.  When FOX gave Lucas the greenlight the studio thought it could very well be their swansong.  And how could they not?  The budget, for the time, was pretty big (the number itself might seem laughable now as even some independent films are made for more).  Not only that, but there were many problems.  There was a big desert storm the first day …

Classic space adventure full of heroes and villains. Special Edition is damning but a classic for all time nonetheless.

About this movie

Wiki

The Star Wars logo, as seen in all films

Star Wars is an epic space opera franchise conceived by George Lucas. The first film in the franchise was originally released on May 25, 1977, by 20th Century Fox, and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon, spawning two immediate sequels, released at three-year intervals. Sixteen years after the release of the trilogy's final film, the first in a new prequel trilogy of films was released, again released at three-year intervals, with the final film released on May 19, 2005.

As of 2008, the overall box office revenue generated by the six Star Wars films has totalled approximately $4.3 billion, making it the third-highest-grossing film series,[1] behind only the James Bond and Harry Potter films.

The Star Wars film series has spawned other media including books, television series, video games, and comic books. These supplements to the film trilogies comprise the Star Wars Expanded Universe, and have resulted in significant development of the series' fictional universe. These media kept the franchise going in the interim between the film trilogies. In 2008, Star Wars: The Clone Wars was released to theaters as the first ever worldwide theatrical Star Wars film outside of the main trilogies. It was the franchise's first animated film, and was intended as an introduction to the Expanded Universe series of the same name, a 3D CGI animated series based on a previous 2D animated series of a similar name.
