I have mentioned this film in some of my other sci-fi reviews mainly because no sci-fi film maintains more importance than Empire Strikes Back.
This film is the darkest and probably the most memorable of the entire series. When you think of Star Wars which scenes do you think of; for me what comes to mind are: Luke Skywalker's hand being cut of and Darth Vader telling him that he is Luke's father, the battle between the rebel forces and the empire on the ice planet of Hoth, and I think of Yoda teaching Luke how to use the force before he can defeat Vader. All of those scene's are from Empire Strikes Back.
While many might prefer the original Star Wars as it was an original, inventive story for all ages, I prefer its sequel since this is a film that when I was young watching it I did not fully appreciate its dark intensity but watching again now I can truly understand the intensity and the well written script.
This film is truly the greatest Sci-Fi film ever made and to be compared in any way to it surely means that the film is fantastic.
