Which OT scene takes you straight back to your childhood?

Postby edd_jedi » Fri Jan 08, 2016 4:21 pm

For some reason, whenever I see the scene where Luke's feet are iced to the ceiling of the Wampa's cave, it gives me a funny feeling. When I first watched the 1994 re-releases, that was the bit that took me straight back to 1983.

Lying under the table at my nans house, 1984, the tv premiere of SW in Norway, when the stormies and vader boarded the rebel cruiser, my favourite scene of all times, still has the wow factor now as it did then..

Same for me (at the cinema in 1977). Life was never really the same after that :D

Bizarrely the rebels on the Tantive IV scene is the one that takes me back to childhood most too! How strange!

Trash compactor scene takes me back especially when Luke disappears. No idea why just resonates big time with me. The whole film does I suppose, their's just so many simple thing's in that film which make you beleive in what your watching, the droids in the desert is another one, think it's just the contrast between the droids, sand and blue sky.

I think it's the Tatooine scenes that most resonate with me.
The droid sale, blasting off from Mos Eisley, Obi Wans introduction and the Cantina, amongst others.

If I had to pick one it would be Luke staring wistfully at the binary sunset, with the Force Theme swelling in the background.
Instantly transported back to 1978.

Jabba's palace scene when Luke arrives giving us our first glimpse of him as a Jedi Knight. :D

It was the only movie of the original Trilogy that I saw in the Cinema at the time....also Luke jedi was one of the first carded figures I received as a child :)

Also the Endor planet scenes....Speeder bikes, AT-ST ..loved them!

I clearly remember watching the rebel attack on the death star in ANH over and over. I even recall hearing my dad one night walk in and say "not bloody star wars again" :D

Saturday afternoons watching them on video at my nan and grandads house is my main memory of watching them and the scenes that really stick out are Tatooine and the droids, the carbonite freezing chamber with Luke vs Vader and the Emperors throne room with Luke vs Vader 2. Also remember being scared of the Dagobah cave scene.

Difficult to choose, but it'd be between:

The lightsabre duel between Ben and Vader in the Death Star (as highlighted by Bonsai it's such an iconic image, even back then); and

The Death Star attack at the end of 'Star Wars' - 'Stay on target', 'The guns. They've stopped!' and 'Switch all power to front....... deflector screens' gave me and my brother hours of fun!

Yeah a lot of the early scenes in A New Hope for me too. Really define Star Wars. The Stormies blasting through the Blockade runner door. Inside the Jawa crawler "R2D2 it is you it is you!". Lars homestead "help me Obi-Wan Kenobi you're my only hope". Luke and the sunset scene. Whole Cantina scene. Something about Tatooine, just takes me right back.
