The circle is now complete, Ryan has finshed the Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray

| October 17, 2011

Sorry about the delay but here are my final thoughts on Star Wars The Complete Saga. And instead of boring you with another review of the final two movies I decided to list my favorite movies in order from my least favorite to one of the greatest movies ever…

6. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace: Yes I still think this is the weakest of the Saga, but I enjoyed it much more then I did when it was released.  The battle between Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Darth Maul is still epic, and the podrace is thrilling. But the film doesn’t really advance the Star Wars story and the Gungons thankfully lasted (mostly) only one movie. B-

5. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones: The second episode picks up a little more momentum and has some truly radical moments. The war between the clones and droids is really awesome, but the absolute highlight is the lightsaber duel between Yoda and Count Dooku. Unfortuntely it also has wooden acting and terrible dialogue which keep it from the heights of the Saga. B

4. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of The Jedi: The original trilogy is still amazing but this movie is not quite up to the standards of the first two. It does have a sweet monster in the Rancor and the scene between Vader and Luke on the Bridge is sweet. It’s just too goofy sometimes. The Ewoks are still lame and the scene that carried over from the Special Edition where the two aliens sing and dance for Jabba makes my eyes roll. I will say that watching the movies right after each other makes you truly realize that the whole Saga is really Anakin’s story and to watch him fulfill the Prophecy of destroying the Dark Side thus bringing balance to the force makes the Saga all that more amazing. A-

3. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith: After watching this movie again it seems even more like a natural part of the Saga. It finally pays off what all the Star Wars fans have been waiting for and that was Anakin turning to the Darkside. Yes there is some terrible dialogue but the movie is epic and has some amazing scenes. A-

2. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope: After all these years this is still an amazing movie. It has such a feel of adventure and wonder. I love this movie, and watching it again brought back so many memories of watching as a kid with my dad. It still has the ability to make me cheer and smile. A

1. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back: Hands down the best of the Saga and also one of the greatest movies of all time. The whole movie is top notch, from the battle on Hoth to one of the most shocking moments in movies ever this movie has few equals. I still get goosebumps when Vader speaks and still have the sense of doom when he chops off Luke’s hand and tells him that he is his father. I love this movie and could watch it a thousand times and still want to watch it again. The force is strongest with this one. A+

The Blu-Rays are worth the price and I recommend this set for everyone.
