I turn 14 next week and my Dad gave me all the movies on blu-ray as an early birthday present. I have never seen any of the movies and literally don’t know anything it. I saw A New Hope for the first time today and I loved it. Dad told me to watch the films in release order. I’ll be watching Empire tomorrow and Ep 6 on my Birthday. I hope it’s okay if I post my thoughts here after I see each one? I’ll start with Ep IV, which I loved. *** The opening scroll was a really unique way to start the movie. Have never seen opening credits done like this. The rebels being boarded was terrifying. I didn’t know what to expect and the sounds they hear while being docked were chilling. Vader is such a cool villain. I hope he comes back. The fella seemed fine at the end of the movie. The mask and the breathing creeped me out. I want Luke to avenge his father and Ben. It broke my heart to see Ben sacrifice himself just so that Luke could live. I want to see more lightsaber stuff. Blasters are cool but love the laser sword. They seem like volatile weapons. Ben and Vader almost seemed afraid of their sabers coming in contact with each other. I wanted Luke to use his at some point. I was hoping to see Luke confront his uncle about why he lied about his father. Owen seems to have been hiding something. He was adamant about Luke staying away from Ben too. Princess Leia is braver than I ever will be. Vader was scary as **** and I was stunned to see her stand up to him like that in the beginning. The nun like outfit threw me off at first so I was expecting a naive soft damsel in distress. Loved her sassy dominant attitude. Luke appears to be head over heels in love with her. I don’t think he had many friends in Mos Eisley. Is this the first girl he’s seen in a while? He seemed smitten when he saw her hologram. Luke and Leia would make a good couple imo. Luke seems so innocent and timid while Leia is anything but. Han seems into her as well but I’m rooting for Luke. She seemed more into him in the medal ceremony anyway. I didn’t trust Han at first and he seemed shady. I let out an audible cheer when he showed up at the end. I winced when Chewie growled at Luke for wanting to put on the cuffs but he seems like a gentle beast. I felt he was guilting Han to help Luke at the Rebel station. Oh my god the attack on the Death Star was the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. I have never seen a dogfight in space like this. The trench run had me digging my nails into my palms! I love the X-Wings and the sounds the Ties make. I hope there are more space battles like this. The inside of the Death Star was really cool. I am so happy they spent so much time inside it. With no base, I think the next movie will have the Rebels hunting down the Imperials? I hope to see lUke leading the charge. I loved the three main characters. I related to Luke the most and I loved how he wanted to do the right thing against great odds. Han was cool. I love his vest. He seemed more in touch with reality and although he tries to play it off like he doesn’t care, he seems to have a good heart. Leia with her bossy attitude and hair buns was cute as a button. The medal ceremony scene was like seeing her like the first time. She looked beautiful in the classic sense and felt like a real princess for the first time. I am so ****ing excited to see the next movie. I just want more of these characters and spaceships and laser swords and blasters and stormtroopers. The music is ****ing incredible. It was my favorite thing about the movie.
