    There's one for the PT, now one for the OT!

    I've always considered Star Wars to be an excellent visual art, and its imagery always shows this, always setting the mood for the scene.

    Feel free to post pics too!

    The opening scene of ANH is just amazing....it's the reason I still love SW to this day!

    I have always had a soft spot for the scene in Empire when Luke is stumbling in the snow and falls on his face. I dont think I have ever walked in the snow without acting out that scene.:)

    I've always liked the fog/steam during the duel in TESB.

    Black, black and black with two glowing sticks. Beautiful!

    Is it kind of twisted that I like when Palpatine is attacking Luke with the Force Lightning and we see Luke's teeth light up?

    Good to know Lars_Muul! I have no idea why I like seeing his teeth flash with electricity but I just do.

    Force Smuggler: It always makes me wonder what it feels like to have your teeth electrocuted (probably not the most comfortable feeling in the universe) :)
    It's also a really cool detail. That's one of the things that I love about ILM (and GL) - their attention to detail! They put so much effort into every single movie they make. Simply amazing.





    - You are so... beautiful.
    - Alright, alright. You old smoothie.

    I'd rather not find that feeling out... The small details like that do indeed make the movies that much better. I hope the ST keeps that up.

    Oh I totally forgot about when the ships jump to hyperspace! I love watching out the viewport and seeing the stars elongate.

    There's too many to count, but a few subtle details that I liked were the Krayt Dragon skeleton on Tatooine and the eerie blue glow during the duel between Vader and Luke on the Death Star. Also, the bottomless chasms never get old (both on the Death Star and Cloud City).

    Another Death Star II pic. I just love the look of that space station! It's so wonderfully forbidding. This whole picture is a splendid illustration of the Empire's might. Very humbling.

    Beautiful colors! This film doesn't get enough credit for it's visual composition, IMO.
