Bubba_Louie, below, seems to have a case of the Mondays! I don't think Star Wars was meant to be great cinema - just a fun romp. That's how I take it, anyway. It's just good cheesy fun. Gotta love Darth Vader and Chewbacca and Han Solo and the lot of 'em. Episodes I, II and III, I can do without. Episodes IV, V and VI are just good clean fun. Cranky pants need not apply. :o)

If your nostalgic, starry-eyed, inner-child has deceived you, then, just remember this - Star Wars was not intended to be viewed as a religious experience, nor was it a metaphysical endeavor in any way, shape, or form._____ Star Wars is incredibly over-rated, badly acted and a prime example of horrible story-telling. Its weak, cliched plot only served to provide a thoroughly rotten structure for the basis of the entire Star Wars saga._____ Star Wars special effects aren't even as impressive as those of 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film which actually predates Star Wars by 10 years._____ And to make matters worse, Star Wars featured some really lousy characters, like a wimpy, pip-squeak hero - Luke Skywalker; and an annoying, ninny-of-a-robot - C-3PO._____ Yep. You better take off those rose-colored glasses, everyone, 'cause Star Wars' greatness is only a childhood illusion.

A must see for any fan of scifi/fantasy.

The original and the best one of the series so far!

Stunning visual effects, fantastic theme music, solid character development and an interesting story give this film an enduring place in motion picture history. Darth Vader becomes the icon of evil with an imperial march by John Williams that resonates throughout the film (ranked #3 in the top 100 villains of all time - he's pretty nasty). The additional scenes are helpful to the story, but not absolutely necessary.
