Top 10 STAR WARS Moments

In the past year or so, I’ve started listening to Collider‘s various podcasts and videos alongside my usual intake of The Weekly Planet and Mr. Sunday Movies. I will often listen to Collider Live, am an avid listener of Jedi Council and have also become a big fan of the Rule of Two spin-off podcast.

During last week’s episode, Mark Reilly and Marc Fernandez counted down their top ten favourite Star Wars moments and encouraged listeners to do the same. And after listening to the podcast yesterday, I’ve opted to do just that.

Like Reilly and Fernandez, I’m also just going to be sticking to the movies, otherwise, this list could become overwhelmed with Kanan Jarrus moments.

Also, spoilers, obviously.

As I mentioned in my review of the original Star Wars, my favourite of the bunch often changes depending on a number of factors. Usually, however, it’s Return of the Jedi. Despite that, having watched the majority of the films in close proximity to one another, and in my attempt to be unbiased, there are numerous flaws I’d like to discuss about my ‘favourite’ Star Wars movie.

Return of the Sith

The film picks up shortly after the events of Empire, with Luke, Leia, Lando, Chewie, R2 and C-3PO infiltrating Jabba’s palace so they can stage a daring rescue attempt and save their friend Han Solo. With the gang reunited, Luke must finish his Jedi training, and the Rebel Alliance must unite one final time to destroy Darth Vader and the Emperor, who have gathered aboard a new, second Death Star.

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK | DVD Review

RELEASED: May 21st 1980
DIRECTED BY: Irvin Kershner
WRITTEN BY: George Lucas, Lawrence Kasdan & Leigh Brackett
PRODUCED BY: Gary Kurtz
MUSIC BY: John Williams
STARRING: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels, Alec Guinness, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Ian McDiarmid, Jeremy Bulloch, Temuera Morrison & Frank Oz

I had nothing but praise for the original Star Wars, and to be honest, the same is pretty much true of it’s sequel, The Empire Strikes Back.

While Star Wars was a great foundation, Empire ups the stakes even more, pushing characters through the ringer to get to their natural destination.

The story sees the Rebels on the run, as the Empire goes on the offensive following the destruction of the Death Star. After escaping an assault on their secret base on the planet Hoth, Luke Skywalker seeks out to find Jedi Master Yoda to learn the ways of the Force, while Han, Leia and the rest of the gang flee across the Galaxy, closely pursued by Darth Vader, who has vile plans for Skywalker and his friends.
