I'm going to refer to this film as "Star Wars" and not "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" because that is how it was originally called when it came out in 1977. "Star Wars" is the movie that changed cinema forever. When it first came out, people had never seen this kind of science fiction. This movie is pure amazing. The plot wasn't overthought and boring, it was simple and interesting. Sometimes, simple is bad, but in this case it was good. The action was sensational for the time. In 1977, no one had seen this kind of action before and people were amazed by it. Another thing I really liked was the villain Darth Vader. He is menacing. Darth Vader was a different type of villain. His overall structure was pure evil and frightening. Other characters like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca "the walking carpet" are all very likeable. We see throughtout the movie how Luke struggles to use the force and control it. We see more of that in "The Empire Strikes Back". In addition to the characters, action, and story the dialogue is fantastic. I didn't think the script was campy or too serious, it was just right. From the beginning to the end, I was totally invested in "Star Wars". There is nothing bad about it and to this day, it is one of the best films in the history of cinema. In my opinion, the "Star Wars" franchise is complemented with "The Empire Strikes Back".
