The most innovative Science Fiction movie of all time. It still gives me goose bumps.

Star Wars is right up there with the best movies ever. It's a more recognizable film.

I've taken the rest of the Trilogy out of my chart. They are all combined into this one as a whole

It's a science fiction movie of the 70's that didn't age up a bit even after decades of CGI and Top-Notch technology. SO ahead of it's time. The crazy thing is that it actually got better with the time. God i love it.

I don't get it. It's like adults reading Harry Potter. It's a film for the under-10s! Cowboys and Indians in space... oooh a light sabre; plastic, cheap and stagey.

Well it's pretty simple. Star Wars is fucking brilliant. The lightsaber wasn't the gimmick of the movie by the way, it only makes a few appearances in it. 'Cowboys and Indians in space.' I don't understand what you are saying there, and I don't really see the problem with those things anyway. It actually was a pretty cheap film but the special effects still hold up today. 'Stagey' - It is a movie, it's not real life. I really don't know what that means, if you want to criticize something then be specific. I don't know if you're talking about the sets or the acting or what. The film's appeal is primarily for children but does that mean we shouldn't regard Pixar movies as great animations because it's 'for the under=10s'. Harry Potter and Star Wars are fantasy stories that are used for escapism.

Your comment sucks and Star Wars rules.

I'd say that Star Wars had a much larger impression on Hollywood than 2001. 2001 was a flop whereas Star Wars made fortunes. Star Wars excites more general audiences than 2001. Hollywood thrives on profitable movies and Star Wars definitely made profit.

An unbelievably influential science fiction flick. Though it is a brilliant movie, it is not the best in the saga. That is just my opinion.
