The original trilogy hands down, although I will give props to Episode 3. Anakin doing whatever he can to save Padme and then her dieing because of the path he took to save her, thats just good writing there.
As a kid there was 2 things I grew up on:
1. Video Games
2. STAR WARS
As a kid thats all I did was watched 4,5,6 and played video games. I knew the lines off by heart and would often say them as the movie went on. I was really dissapointed with 1,2,3 though.
that sure must be funny since they never used strings on the models
anywho.... to me, the best is and always will be The Empire Strikes Back
you get all the winning elements:
- good guys make a run for their lives at the very beginning
- vader is killing imperial officers right and left
- han solo gets his butt frozen in carbonite
- luke gets his hand choped off
- most kick *** jedi master in history is revealed!! (not anymore thx to the prequels though)
- we get to see vader in a real fight
- greatest plot twist in cinema history ever!!!
I'm a starwars geek/fanboy, w/e you call it and I love all the movies, but TESB is my favourite by far
