The Empire Strikes Back often considered to be the best SW movie. While A New Hope is my personal favorite, I can't deny that Empire certainly is the best made film of the saga. The characters are expanded, as is the galaxy they live in, and it has one of my favorite battles in the saga. Not to mention one of the greatest twists in the history of film.
Man! Just like JW, this movie has been bashed to death by many folks on the web. In my view this not only an improvement from JW(I really like that one too) but also a very logical continuation that adds plenty of thrills to my favorite franchise. Sure it has it's stupid moments, but guess what so did JP1. It's not JP1 if your talking about that first movie. This is definitely Michael Crichton's JP translated to a blockbuster. Can't wait for JW3. JP isn't dead or ruined, but evolved.
