Star Wars: A New Hope

In memory of Carrie Fisher I watched this last night. This is the fifth time since starting this blog that I have watched it.

Carrie was the perfect actress for this role, she made Leia a character that could hold her own, and was on equal footing with the male characters. It is hard to imagine anyone else doing it, especially Jodie Foster. All of the cast were perfectly chosen actually, George did things right in those days.

There is not much to say because it is the original Star Wars film which I only rank slightly lower than The Empire Strikes Back, and ahead of Return of the Jedi (damn Ewoks).

It was good to see this not long after seeing Rogue One, and seeing how well the story continued between the two films.

I may just have to watch The Empire Strikes Back tonight.

Date watched: December 28th
Score: 10/10
Film count 2016: 204
