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..
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.
'But I was going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters.'
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.
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.
