5 stars

In a galaxy far, far away..

I hope they also make movies as good as this one.

In the Star Wars Trilogy, this is the flick where all the actors shine brightest.

A rare occurance can be seen here: THIS SEQUEL IS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL.

Empire is one of the finest Sci-Fi flicks to hit the big screen, and has set a precedent that every Sci-Fi flick that followed has been compared to.

You can't beat Yoda. As far as little green puppets go, he's the top of the tops. Luke was less of a wuss, and that's a good thing.

My girlfriend really digs the Solo/Leia kiss.

This movie fucking rocks ass.
