Star Wars is obviously one of the most influential and important science fiction films ever made. It takes classic fantasy archetypes and transplants them into a deep space setting. It was also essential in popularizing the concept of Used Future. Story: A farmboy's guardians get killed, so he decides to follow his father's (a famous Jedi Knight) footsteps, lead by his father's Old Master. Meets a smuggler, rescues a princess, and joins the rebellion against The Empire. Content: Lots of blasters and the offscreen deaths of millions of people. The good:
- An excellent overarching plot, with a variety of characters, who are all well developed.
- Special Effects that are excellent for a movie released in the 70's. They still hold up 30 years later.
- Highly entertaining action.
- Darth Vader. One of the best villains ever devised.
- Han Solo. Bad Ass. And played by Harrison Ford.
- John Williams
