still from a new hope

Review: Star Wars:Episode IV – A New Hope

Spoiler Discussion

1.Every single scene with R2-D2 in it had me smiling. Such a precious character. Watching C-3PO freak out at the end about his friends possible demise was heartwarming. Total tsundere if you know what I mean.

2. Luke’s reaction to his uncle and aunt’s death had me unexpectedly start laughing. He just seems so detached from it and it’s like did you even process what just happened here? I wish there was a tear or something to indicate that the impact of it was dawning on him. Thankfully, the moment happens early on in the film so it doesn’t harm his character growth.

3. “I find your lack of faith disturbing.” Okay Darth Vader. Hands down one of the best lines I’ve ever heard. I audibly gasped when he said it and then proceeded to force choke the general. It really helped sell the mystical nature of the force, but also Vader’s respect of its rule. That was kind of cool to see? A principled bad guy in a weird sense. I’m interested to see what his motivations are and more of the schism between the dark and light side.
