The start of an amazing mythology, and the beginning of one of the most well known movie franchises of all time. This story tells the journey of how a young man gains knowledge of the universe he lives in, and becomes a force to be reckoned with. It is classic storytelling at it'...

An absolute classic that must be seen. There really isn't anything I can say that hasn't been said already. It does look fantastic on blu-ray, though!

Trying to imagine filmmaking without Star Wars is like trying to imagine pop music without The Beatles: it simply isn't possible. The proliferation of Star Wars into every conceivable corner of our culture makes discussions of its legacy either pointless or severely tainted by th...

The first to be made out of the Star Wars saga is quite possibly the best. This Sci-Fi masterpiece created so many iconic characters, locations and even phrases. This is one of few Sci-Fi films to change the genre and remain as popular today as it did then.

Forget the two crappy prequels and the one preally good prequel, this is what Star Wars is all about. This is the real beginning of the saga. Within the first couple of minutes watching this movie, you will get hooked into the storyline. The opening scene not only includes a cool...

There are three Star Wars films. Star Wars is a magical rollercoaster ride of fun and excitement, populated with charming characters you actually CARE about, who have believable relationships in a fairytale universe of good and evil. Star Wars is my first movie love, and no matte...
