'Empire' turns 30: Share your memories
The Empire Strikes Back: The BEST Of The 3...
I have always been a pretty big Star Wars fan. I remember when I was 8 years old, my mom took my brother and me, along with 6 of our friends to go watch The Empire Strikes Back. We waited in line for close to 5 hours, and my mom who took a day off from work to be there with us, made it even more great...
I remember once we were inside, the excitement was enormous. We were kids but it surely was one of the best times we've had at the movies. In my opinion, The Empire Strikes Back is the best of the 3 Star Wars movies. I didn't like it when George Lucas came out with the special editions of these movies. I believe he ruined these 3 movies by adding scenes, and taking away scenes. Why try and change a classic series when we all loved the way they were from 1977-1983? I am also not including episodes 1-3 because in my mind, they do not exist! For anyone who is a true Star Wars fan, You know what i'm talking about...
The Empire Strikes Back is my favorite of the saga because it had some tough and tense moments, along with drama and plenty of action. Clearly it had one of the best endings in movie history because it ends with us seeing Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca leaving in the millennium falcon to go and search for Han Solo...
Picture 1 is the teaser poster for this movie, and picture 2 is the theatrical poster of the movie. Picture 3 and 4 is the original Star Wars trilogy on VHS that came in a package that came out in 1992. Picture 5 is a Darth Vader telephone that when it rings, the imperial march song comes on. It also has some famous lines by Darth Vader. Picture 6 are 2 of my favorite action figures, The Emperor and Darth Vader. Unfortunately someone STOLE my all time favorite action figure Boba Fett. I hope to purchase him in the near future :)...
My favorite line in this trilogy is when Yoda tells Luke Skywalker, NO Try Not, Do Or Do Not, There Is No Try...
I can't believe it's been 30 years already, but I guess there is no harm in still being a kid at heart.
