The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back ★★★★★

Luke: I'm not afraid
Yoda: You will be……….you will be…..

Fuck this movie is the best. The battle of Hoth. Luke & Yoda on Dagobah. Cloud City. The last 30 minutes alone jesus.

Music is still on fire thanks to John Williams (how pumped do you get just hearing any of the iconics?). The practical effects of their time still look great. Also man just absolute quote after quote that I've used countless times:

-- Laugh it up, Fuzzball.
-- Why, you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder!”
-- Never tell me the odds!
-- Do. Or do not. There is no try.
-- This deal is getting worse all the time!
-- I love you……….I know
-- I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further.

Also, having an avid fear of spoilers for movies I'm excited about, boy I CANNOT imagine having the Luke/Vader twist ruined for me. How sick would that have been to see it live in theaters in the 80s?
