Top Ten Star Wars Moments
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.
