Thoughts on Star Wars

Guys, I actually did something over break!! I watched some of the original Star Wars and went to see the new one.... twice.  Aren't you so proud of me? I did something that has nothing to do with books!
P.S. I don't really know how to review movies, so I hope these are okay.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Star Wars: A New Hope
★★★
"The force can have a strong impact on the weak-minded."

"Who's more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?"

"Somebody has to save our skins." -Princess Leia

"If you strike me down, Darth, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."

I loved how this movie was both mysterious and action packed right from the beginning, so I was never bored. I loved the suspense that got me to the edge of my seat, and kept me there. However, I also felt that the movie was not very well explained in the beginning, but I felt that it is almost always the case in the beginning for most movies. This movie was epic and unexpected for me.

"Something is wrong. I can sense it." -Said everyone ever

I also really really liked seeing the old technology and scriptwriting trends and such from a while ago. However, I felt that some parts were very repetitive. I was glued to the screen at the end, but I honestly was just kind of waiting for it to be over in the middle and beginning. The climax was stellar and it was my favorite part.

Overall, I would recommend this classic packed with action, but not if you have a short attention span.

Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi
★★★★★
"Strong I am with the force, but not that strong."

"Your hate has made you powerful."

This book, again, had a slow beginning, but the action quickly picked up. I also really liked the small evils that they conquered throughout the plot to lead to, eventually a big victory. I also really liked the plot twists that definitely added to the plot. There was a lot of mystery and intense action, just like the other movie.

“I can sense his presence.” -said everyone ever

I felt like, again, that the dialogue was kind of repetitive and cliche. I also felt that the effects and action were very good for that time.

Star Wars: The Final Empire
★★★★

There was no slow beginning, to my surprise. This movie had everything that the other movies had, like action, adventure, suspense, and something different to it. This movie also had a special humor that made you laugh, but was classy at the same time. I liked how much the technology and video quality had improved since the other ones.

Overall, this was the best movie by far out of all of them.

Overall
While I did enjoy these movies, and they had a great elements, I felt that if you had seen the first movie, you have seen all of them. I would recommend for you to see them, as they are classics, and they are fun to watch, but they are not super great by any means.
