The last hour of ESB is probably the best 60 minutes of Star Wars their will ever be IMO.

But I agree with the comment above about Star Wars somehow being my favourite too? it's a weird thing, ROTJ is my my most enjoyable film to watch, but SW goes back a long way for me as it has my most earliest memories of first seeing and loving Star Wars when I was about 4/5 years old, at that age I didn't have a fucking clue what any of the story was even about but just the way the film looked and felt with the design of everything and the scenery was what first got me hooked, my very earliest memory being of the scene on the Blockade Runner which really got my attention at the age of 4.
So for me it's Star Wars simply for it's style, and ROTJ for it's story, action and grand ending. So they're both my no.1 favourite but in very different ways.

Yes agree with the above statement (even if it doesn’t seem like it) - what I’ve tried to do in this thread is highlight the sections in Empire that others sight as epic, that perhaps I never had the same connections to or affiliation for. This is a spot of soul searching or discovery if you like, in order to try to uncover why others love ESB more, or find out for myself, why I love it less. And perhaps controversially make others think about why they love it more, rather than just saying they do, because everyone does (which seems to happen a lot on FB). We’ve heard from a few ANH lovers and one ROTJ lover. It would be nice to hear from a few ESB lovers and there must be plenty out there.Crumm wrote:No matter what happens going forward, we will always have ANH, ESB and RotJ, and for that I am eternally grateful
Here, here. I myself, really loved Rogue One. It felt like it was a grown up version of the Star Wars universe specifically made for Star Wars fans and collectors like me that grew up with the original trilogy, but who are no longer kids (well maybe at heart). I hope Solo delivers in the same way...
