Ryan is watching the Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray here’s what he thought of Episode 4…

| October 5, 2011

Finally I have made it to the Original Trilogy! What an interesting journey it’s been down memory lane, and I must say it was great reliving the moments of my childhood…

Episode IV takes place several years after Episode III and finds the Galaxy at Civil War. Darth Vader is dispatched to a vessel carrying Princess Leia, who has stolen plans to The Death Star, the Empires ultimate weapon. Before her capture Leia records a message in R2-D2 and orders him to find Obi-Wan Kenobi. Not only does he(along with CP30) find Obi-Wan but also farm boy Luke Skywalker. Luke learns that his father was “killed” by Lord Vader and Obi-Wan asks him to fulfill his destiny and join him in destroying the Empire. At first Luke rejects him and only when he returns home to find his Aunt and Uncle dead, killed by Imperial Stormtroopers does Luke realize that he must join Obi-Wan in defeating Vader.

Catching a ride with the coolest character in space Han Solo, Luke and Obi-Wan find that the planet they were attempting to go to has been destroyed by The Death Star. They also discover Leia is being held captive there and set out to rescue her. Luke and Han(with Chewbacca and the Droids) do rescue her. Obi-Wan fights Vader in a light saber duel and is killed.

The plans for the Death Star are more then helpful as the rebels learn that it has a weakness and plan to exploit it.  Amazing space battles ensue with the eventual destruction of the Death Star by Luke Skywalker.

I love this movie. I have seen it so many times and I still get a kick out of it. I still cheered when Han saved Luke at the end, I still get goosebumps when Vader speaks. This movie is so much fun. I smiled ear to ear when Han Solo makes his long awaited appearance. What else can be said about this classic.

The sound and picture again are top notch. As far as the changes of a different dragon call by Obi-Wan, and the extra boulders in front of R2D2 they go by without notice. This movie is one of the best.

Grade: A
