Jasen's Review of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
Cue music! From John William's opening score to George Lucas' opening scene, "The Planet Tatooine emerges from total eclipse, her two moons glowing against darkness. A tiny Rebel Blockade Runner emerges from the right firing lasers from behind, racing through space. It is pursed by a giant and ominous Imperial Stardestroyer..." Star Wars is the movie that started it all; a new generation of science fiction and the biggest influence the genre has ever seen. Star Wars- A new Hope is a classic tale of good vs evil, innocence vs corruption the difference is George Lucas' ambition and vision. Given the era, budget, locations, no name cast and studio issues its hard to believe that Star Wars emerged as successful and timeless as it did. It is forever etched in the psyche of movie lovers and society a-like. A Masterpiece!
