Quando comecei a assistir mais filmes eu precisava de um caminho pra seguir e caí de cabeça em um monte…
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
Princess Leia is captured and held hostage by the evil Imperial forces in their effort to take over the galactic Empire. Venturesome Luke Skywalker and dashing captain Han Solo team together with the loveable robot duo R2-D2 and C-3PO to rescue the beautiful princess and restore peace and justice in the Empire.
The Princess has been kidnapped by a bad motherfucker and whom better to save her than an old fuck, a naive teenager, a cocky pilot, a furry wingman, and a couple of fun-loving droids. SPACESHIP! Invasion. Stormtroopers. The first time Vader breathes. Dark side choke slam. Leia's gun. Blast off. The desert. Jawas. Uncle Owen's protectiveness. Droid adoption service. The sneakiness of R2-D2. 3PO's devotion. Sandy fuckers. Obi-Wan and his undeniable swag. Lightsabers are available for use in different colors. The Force. Luke's robe. Barroom amputation. Han Solo and Chewbacca owning every scene like a boss. Fuck you Greedo! Han shot first. Han's vest. I wish I could fly the Millenium Falcon. Blast shield. Wookie knockout. A slight malfunction. Chewie's…

The ultimate adventure. Serials, Westerns, sci-fi, and Space Operas are all combined into an utter masterwork of world building, imagination, supreme characters, and bombastic vision.
I love everything about Star Wars. I love the opening shot, I love Darth Vader's first appearance, I love how douchey R2-D2 is, I love the locations, I love the subtle reveal of character, I love the endless display of unique species and worlds, I love the grounded story, I love Han Solo, I love Chewie, I love Luke, I adore Leia, I'm in continuous awe of John WIlliam's score, I love the duel between Vader and Obi-Wan, I love the final battle, I love how it ends, I love every single second of this timeless masterpiece.
Why five stars I hear you ask?
Well..... here's why:
- It has some of the most memorable film characters ever.
- the Millennium Falcon
- the garbage disposal scene
- 'May the Force be with you'
- Light Sabres
- Peter frickin' Cushing
- James frickin' Earl frickin' Jones
- Alec frickin' Guinness
- John frickin' Williams
- my horrible Chewbacca impression of which I am insanely proud
- 'Stay on target!'
- the choke hold
- 'And now, your highness, we will discuss the location of your
hidden rebel base. '
- Mos Eisly
- the Greedo-Solo showdown
- the best opening scene ever
- 'Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only…
1977 is kind of a blur for me. My dad had just passed away at the beginning of the year, and a couple of weeks later I celebrated my 18th birthday. Those are the two events that are crystal clear in my memory, but one more is too, the day I saw Star Wars.
Star Wars and I didn’t exactly get off on the right foot. I didn’t see it for a month or so after it was released, maybe more, and all I heard during that period, over and over and over, was ‘Best Science Fiction Film Ever …. WAY better than 2001’. People who know me here know my reverence for that particular film, and I had serious…

Laying my cards on the table: I absolutely hate Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. The plot (Luke and Han are pulled in by the death star, they manage to escape, they go back to destroy it) is thinner than the iPhone will be ten years from now. The special effects are next to nothing compared to the decade-older science-fiction landmark 2001: A Space Odyssey. Characters are clichés at best: Luke ‘the chosen one’ Skywalker, Obi-Wan ‘the old master’ Kenobi, Han ‘the money-obsessed solo slim’ Solo. Mark Hamill puts down one of the worst performances I’ve ever seen and the rest of the cast is generally not much better. Princess Leia is…
The hype is getting to me.
I know this is a bad idea, because we've all been here before. I know this is a bad idea, because the images coming out of the film have already confirmed my worst fears in a single image: Lupita Nyong'o with motion capture spheres all over her. Others have suggested there is something offensive about the concept art for her character, and I will not be surprised if the history of offensive stereotyping with their "alien" races continues. But even if it doesn't, even if her character is somehow devoid of visual or audible cues that draw on a long history of devaluing human beings by limiting them to small, often buffoonish roles, it…

While Star Wars may be more flawed than I remember, that doesn't stop it from being one of the most entertaining and enjoyable films ever made. One of the greatest scores of all time, incredible world building, memorable characters and fantastic visuals make this one of the most important and influential films of all time. Also the Despecialized editions are definitely going to be my one way of watching these films in the future, they're excellent and I recommend everyone checks them out.
I get that Lucas added in all the bullshit around Mos Eisley, but does Han have that confrontation with Jabba with a puppet in the originals or is it just not there?
i love luke skywalker so much
Leia Organa and Han Solo. That is.. all.
I hope that Disney eventually releases a Blu-Ray with all the "Special Edition" crap removed but with the addition of a CGI medal for Chewie.
I've watched this so many times that, at this point, it's impossible to try to have any objectivity at all.
I love it, and I love it more with each viewing. I love the cheese, the special effects, the classic lines, and the music. The death star trench run is one of my favorite sequences in any film.
And always remember: Han didn't shoot first. Han shot, period. Greedo never even stood a chance!
Der erste und mit beste Teil von Star Wars 😍
Nothing can beat this classic from George Lucas,Empire isn't even close to being as good as this film
All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1187. An easy way of seeing how…
