Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Discussion

As a major Star Wars fan i think this is one of the most overrated movies ever.I mean i don't consider it to be the best Star Wars movie let alone greatest movie ever.However, i still think it's a very good film.Except for that Damn Lando guy.

I love the film. Heck, I love all the Star Wars films. But it's only a very good film. It's not the masterpiece some make it out to be.

Empire has some very memorable scenes, and a great story, but it's only one part of a larger story. There's no way for it to even stand on it's own. It has no real beginning and no end.

Love it. Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back are my two favorites, and are among my 10 all-time favorite movies.

I used to watch the entire original trilogy every week in my younger days, but fell out of it in recent years. Sometime last year, probably after watching TPM and AOTC, I put in Empire and thought "Damn. Now that's a damn fine movie. "

I like the new ones, but Empire just has some mojo going on.

I really enjoyed it, but I must say the effects really did not age well with this. As much as I hate to say, I enjoy the SE of ESB better then the other two. it deserved it the most.

Yeah, I suppose return of the jedi is a underrated masterpiece?
The last 3 starwars movies(1983 to now ) are nothing but crap, Fact.

Sadly, it is.
Jedi was nothing but a Ewok Love-fest.
Phantom menace....Jar-Jar Binks...Nuff said.
Attack of the clones....Titanic crossed with lightsabers.

And don't get me started on the wonders of digital effects...overused.

Okay, Jedi i agree.But Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones weren't bad at all.Just my opinion of course.

The Empire Strikes Back was the second consecutive masterpiece Lucas made - and his last one.
