I figure I might as well make some kind of homage to this chapter of the Star Wars anthology, seeing as it’s my personal favorite. This is mostly due to the excitement I felt at 13 years old of the prospect of such a thing as a sequel to a movie I loved. But it’s also due to the darkness of the chapter. For a lot of years I resisted the urgings of Kevin Smith, and stuck by my original love for A New Hope. But there has to be a compromise; for now, I’ll just list my top 5 moments in ESB.
5. Yoda Reveals Himself.
It was unbelievable how gullible audiences were back then. We never thought he was a Jedi until he started scorning Luke.
4. Yoda Raises The X-Wing
I don’t believe it…..that is why you fail.
3. R2D2 Is Awesome. Just check out this clip to sum it all up.
1. Luke vs. Vader: Check out the whole fight, re-edited as one.
