Top Ten Star Wars Moments




sfm15_3

As part of SciFi Month I thought it would be fun to share my Top Ten Star Wars Moments. So here for your enjoyment, and in no particular order, are some of my favorites.

The Asteroid Scene - I love the view from the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon as they bob and weave their way through the asteroids. And Threepio bitching the whole time.



Luke's duel with Vader in The Empire strikes Back- the whole look of Cloud City, just amazing design. Especially the shaft where they have the final showdown- you can hear the wind howling and the winking lights, just very atmospheric.

The moment when Luke realizes he is a Jedi, like his father.  And we see Force lightning for the first time.

One of the coolest space battles ever!



Artoo and Threepio arriving at Jabba's palace. We finally get to see Jabba and his home, and what a place. I love the cavernous feel of it, all the lowlifes and scum of the galaxy



The speeder bike 



Luke with Ben on Tatooine. I like this scene because it shows a quiet moment in the saga, with Luke learning about his father and seeing a lightsaber




Luke faces Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi. The only real character moment we have with these two (until the end)- nicely done I thought.



The battle on Hoth and the Millenium Falcon's narrow escape.





The snowspeeders on Hoth. I remember that in the theater on the big screen- felt like you were right there in the speeder.

  1. A great list for SciFi month! I've been watching these movies basically on repeat lately with my 5 year old and have regularly have the battle of Hoth staged on the kitchen floor. It's his favorite part!

  5. I love this post! We're excited in my house about the new Star Wars movie too. Your top ten include some of my favorite moments too. I'm trying to convince my princess -loving daughter that Princess Leia is worthy of her devotion. I don't think she's convinced yet. :-S

  12. Fun! I always like these unique Top Ten Tuesdays. I should put together something like this at some point - though since I'm not a Star Wars aficionado, I'd have to find something different. :)
