Not only did this film redefine the way we view movies, it redefined the way we create them! George Lucas, along with Steven Spielberg, helped redefine the summer blockbuster and bring in another age of adventurous films with great action scenes, a special connection between the cast of characters, and things we'd never before seen. The dogfights between the TIE fighters and the X-Wing fighters, the lightsaber battle, the dark lord of the Sith Darth Vader himself, a young farm boy (Luke Skywalker), droids (R2-D2 and C-3PO) , a young princess (Leia), a tough rogue (Han Solo) and his faithful companion (Chewbacca)-- all characters and aspects that are embedded in our minds from this one film! Whether or not you like George Lucas, this film started it all! To not have seen this film in this day and age is a marvel in itself!

George Lucas began somewhere like everyone else. His work with the "Star Wars"franchise was initially rejected to even start off by multiple production companies until "Dreamworks" finally bought it. "Star Wars" isn't for everyone, but it's an experience everyone needs to fulfill. Not only did this change the way films were made and give way to modern-day classics, but it started a franchise that millions of people have in their hearts to this day. The blazing originality behind Lucas' mastery is profound in perhaps the coolest way. Space ships, giant bears, light-sabers, all the funky names, and groundbreaking visuals hold the veil over almost any other cinematic advancement. The franchise became a hit due to the uniqueness and originality that no one had every dreamed of. Ironically, it gave way to about six more films after the original trilogy was created. All with one idea to the next did George Lucas make history. A franchise that has been digitally remastered and controlled the theme of a museum isn't just a film. It's a continuous story that is still appreciated by people on every continent. Is it my favorite film franchise? Not even close. I have the utmost respect for the masterminds in creating this film, because it was an important part of my childhood and has contributed more to social and economic factors that almost any work of art to date.

Nineteen years after the formation of the Galactic Empire, a young farmboy named Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he happens upon a holo-recording of a beautiful Rebel princess that is meant for Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi (Alec Guinness), who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader, Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), from the clutches of Darth Vader and the evil Empire.
It's been almost 40 years now since George Lucas' space epic first appeared on the big screen. I was a young seven-year old boy who still remembers how it felt to see that HUGE Star Destroyer keep filling that massive screen as it flew over the planet of Tatooine! How it felt to hear John Williams' incredible score! Or how it felt to feel the tingles on the back of the neck as that iconic breathing mask of Darth Vader hissed for the first time! Wow! What a movie! Truly changing forever the way we looked at movies, "Star Wars" is one of my most favorite movies! If you still haven't seen this American masterpiece, I highly, highly recommend that you do!
