You guys really need to see Empire of the Sun. Spielberg's nearly forgotten masterpiece / ode to David Lean.

Plus, it's Bale's first film and he's incredible.

Imagine being Luke Skywalker...you're a fucking farm boy all your life....with dreams, sure, but still...you're raised in a farm setting and in a short period of time, your Aunt & Uncle get killed, you almost get jacked up at some bar by a dude with the death sentence on 12 systems.....then you barely escape your home planet, only to be captured by a floating planet called a "death star". Your brand new father figure is killed right in front of your face. Then you enlist in the rebel fleet, and before you know it, you're the leader of the last attack wave, which is ok because you did some flying back at Beggar's Canyon. You'll also hear said mentor's voice in your head. Later on, you'll kiss a woman who turns out to be your twin sister, find out that your Dad is a mass murderer, lose a hand, get mocked by some crazy old man with a hood, etc.

He also gets shoved into a Tauntaun carcass.

All he wanted was to go to the Toshi Station to pick up some power converters...

My nominee for Best Wooden Delivery Not from Carrie Fisher in Jedi:

Two fighters against a Star Destroyer?

As Laz said many posts ago, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford wanted to be anywhere but on the set of Jedi.

Fuck, Jedi just frustrates me.

You could've had Wookies, a more competent director (Spielberg, Lynch, or Cronenberg), and I dunno, actual sacrifice at the end?

One major character should've bitten it (apart from Yoda's 20 minute death and Vader's)

I'm not in the Lucas is a poor Director camp, so it's hard for me to wish someone else directed it. The Ewoks are semi-annoying, but to be honest, they do not bother me all that much. That film is worth it just for Palpatine.

There is one thing I don't like about Empire, and that's Han's

"Then I'll see you in hell!"

line. So fucking stupid. Doesn't even make any sense. WTF Charles?

Glad to see the Lucas defense, but Richard Marquand directed Jedi. Now you could certainly argue that Lucas was looking over his shoulder, but Jedi is the least visually interesting of the entire saga. The compositions aren't up to the epic standards of the Lucas-directed installments, and doesn't have the claustrophobic intimacy of Kershner's Empire, either.

I don't get the "have to watch Jedi after Empire" or the "Jedi is the most easily-watchable" thing. Watching Jedi after Empire is like eating a shit sundae for dessert after a great meal at a French restaurant. And as for rewatchable, I still think it's the first one...or Clones (which to me is the most flat-out entertaining of the saga, despite the clunky Naboo scenes).

Let it also be noted that I had nothing to do with hijacking this thread yet AGAIN with Star Wars material.

Empire is easily the most rewatchable for me.

And, this is a random movie talk thread, you cannot hijack it unless you start talking about something not related to cinema. Unless you're talking about Lance's Mom, which is perfectly alright.

Well, she does relate to cinema, but I think she was appearing under an alias back then.
