From start to finish, this is a pure cinematic triumph. Excellent direction, wonderful screenplay, good acting and fantastic camera work make this one of movie history's most timeless classics. Not only is it good science fiction, but is also a fine updating of the swashbuckling entertainment of years gone by. I just hope that the new Star Wars trilogy Lucas has planned is as good as this one.
Note on the Special Edition (1997): Speaking of new, I just happened to catch the special edition of Star Wars. It was my first time seeing it up on the big screen, after years of watching it on the cramped little screen. I must say that it's one of those films you MUST see on the big screen, if you want to get the full effect. It has new footage, including a funny new scene involving a meeting between Han Solo and Jabba the Hut, as well as computer-generated creatures integrated into the old film. This neither hurts nor damages the effect the story has on the audiences. The movie is still as magnificent as ever, more so now that's back on the big screen. Speaking for a whole new generation of Star Wars fans, I say that you may not get another chance to see it again on the big screen. So for the sake of the next generation of people who'll be dazzled and delighted by the magic on the screen, don't pass that chance up.
