Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
James and I decided yesterday we wanted to watch a Star Wars film with his first choice being Episode 7, which I don’t have, so his second choice was Episode 5. This is now the fifth review for this film on MBMS, but I have also seen it several times before as well.
There is no real need to review this, and I would say this is my fave Star Wars film of all of them, although Episode 7 follows in a close second.
It is not a perfect film, there are a few head-scratching scenes which Georgie could have handled better, but compared to Episodes 1, 2, and 3 they are nothing to worry about. Luke’s whining and impetuousness still grates.
Here is a video of some cut scenes. The video starts at a scene that was thankfully cut out, Georgie had a bit more control over himself back then…
Today James and I are going to watch Episode 7 if we can get TV time, I got it out on DVD last night.
Date watched: October 21st
Score: 9.5/10 (previously 10, but those minor niggles got the better of me)
Film count 2017: 118
