Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)
This movie is kinda annoying and naff and bad. Bad acting, bad writing and things are said that were retconned in sequels/prequels. The oft-vilified Darth Vader sounds wrong. There is Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness and bizarre English accents. Darth Vader makes peoples collars too tight. And the Death Star plans were on data tapes. Who are Sand People? The sight of the burnt skeletons of Luke’s aunt and uncle are once seen, never forgotten. Luke shrugs off their deaths and lips off to people. The Special Edition VFX are obviously tacked on. The alien jazz band is something else. This has good music, Leia is shrill and this is a kids movie.

Best Lines:
“You fought in the Clone Wars?”

“Before the dark times.”

“He betrayed and murdered your father.”

“You served my father in the Clone Wars.”

“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”

“Technological terror.”

“Your sad devotion to that ancient religion.”

“Never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.”

“I grow tired of asking this.”

“Why are we still moving towards it?”

Deep Blue Sea (1999)
It is righteous to forsake and scorn this.

Vantage Point (2008)
