With its naive romanticism, its simple fable of youthful innocence triumphing over evil, its look back at classic narrative mythology, Star Wars is an exhilarating ride into cinematic fantasy, unlike anything that the cinema has made since.

Star Wars remains a cinematic benchmark and a greater fantasy than its countless imitators of the past 20 years.

That '70s schmaltz is innocent and pure--and seemed better untainted by modernization.

The spirit of Buck Rogers lives on as writer-director George Lucas continues to pay homage to that gentleman of the 25th Century in a wow of a sci-fi film.

Backgrounds in some sequences are now more populated than they were, and it's fun to see all the creatures that make up the "wretched hive of scum and villainy" that Alec Guinness' Obi-Wan Kenobi describes.

A dynamic entertainment, efficiently and exuberantly setting up its mythic tale of heroes and villains, rebels and rogues, princesses and monsters, good and evil.

It is my contention that the original Star Wars is, on its own, a good film and the best of its series.
