    Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)

    Two robots carrying important plans escaping the Empire end up being bought by a certain moisture farmer, and so the epic begins.

    And here we have the movie that started the legend, and it is still amazing to this day. The plot, though still your classic western, takes you on a roller-coaster of a ride as you follow the heroes on their fight for freedom. The acting by the majority of the actors is top notch, even though Mark Hamill is particularly whiny. But special mention has to go to the great Peter Cushing who plays Tarkin with a gleam in his eye. The special effects are very well handled and still look good even to this day. All in all this is a classic movie, which has inspired sequels, prequels and in fact shaped the entire SF genre. There is not a lot I can say that hasn't already been written before, but if you are one of those few people that has not seen this movie, I urge you to rush out today and purchase a copy.
