A little trivia: The Empire Strikes Back was one of the reasons Flickchart was built. It was Pulp Fiction vs. The Empire Strikes Back that spurred the first matchup debate. It convinced us a website needed to be built to determine which movie more people think is the better film. (I say Empire.)

When you look at mine Top #10, remember that Empire stands for the whole Star Wars saga. I'll always have one of the SW highly ranked on my ranks 'till i'm yoda's age.

Incredible film and the best movie of the entire Star Wars saga. Probably the best movie sequel ever along with The Godfather Part 2.

Even though the prequels have kind of soured me on the writing in Star Wars. I still could watch Empire Strikes Back over and over and over !!!! Best Star Wars movie cheesy dialogue and all
