Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope

Random Pick: Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

Star Wars, Episode IV- A New Hope (Widescreen Edition)

Why we picked this film: We are making an attempt to watch all of Blockbuster 100 most loved movies through the crazy use of my Random Movie BINGO! We landed on D2 so we've begun the Star Wars Series in release order because that is the PROPER way to watch them! (And should we ever have crotch fruit the way we will make our children watch them)

Beeps:  Hooray for random movie bingo.  It's only fitting that the single greatest science fiction epic, be selected for us on our first attempt.  This film really did stand up well to the test of time.  A few minor annoyances aside, (God, does Luke have to be so whiny?)  this movie is the quintessential science fiction film.  It has everything that you'd want in an epic, and it is just as awesome now as it was back then.  It's interesting, but this may be the first time I've ever been speechless in a review, I mean c'mon it's Star Wars... everyone should watch it at least once.  The hardcore nerds among us, have probably seen it 10 times or more. (present company included)  If you haven't seen this film, stop what you are doing, and invest the time.  4 Stars!

Apes: It truly has been FOREVER since I had seen this, and it remains as much a classic today as it was when I first saw it. I love how the story is just as EPIC in subsequent viewings. The characters develop strong, the plot is easy to follow, and the acting is great for the time period and not to bad for modern day. Even the special effects aren't terrible 30 years later. I really, really enjoyed watching this again. I give it 4 stars for being a classic and holding up to the test of time!

Overall we give this film 4 stars
