Star Wars (1977) is a true masterpiece of cinema, and is
definitely one of the best films ever made.
For me Star Wars (1977) is the best movie of all time,tied with The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Star Wars (1977) it is for sure the most iconic film of all time everything in it is iconic. The direction, the script, the performances in this film are brilliant, all the characters are captivating and well developed.
Anyway, this is a totally perfect film, I only have praise for it, it is certainly a masterpiece of cinema, and my grade for it is 10\10.
A long time ago in a childhood not too far away…
Princess Leia is captured and held hostage by the Imperial Army as it seeks to rule the Galactic Empire. An old Jedi Knight by the name of Ben “Obi-Wan” Kenobi may just be hers, and the rebels only hope. Teaming up with farm boy Luke Skywalker, scoundrel Captain Han Solo, and a couple of quirky droids, Kenobi sets off on a mission that could well shape the destiny of the Galaxy, and all who dwell within it.
Back in 1977 I was but a wee 11 year old boy, weened on films from all genres by my movie loving parents, I had no idea that Star Wars was to have the same impact on me as Jaws had two summers previously, where yet again I found myself queueing around the block for two whole hours to see a film in a one screen theatre. My love of cinema firmly cemented, Star Wars was the start of a love affair that lasts to this very day.
As the years have rolled by and my love of cinema has taken on more in-depth and serious tones, I have come to realise that Star Wars proves to be a far from flawless picture. Certainly its detractors do point to some frayed acting and call the plot structure a jazzed up good versus evil axis, while the charge of George Lucas referencing many prior pictures most assuredly stands, but really do those things matter? No they do not, because Star Wars opened up a new world of cinema, something of a portal to youngsters such as I, it got people talking and debating about the merits of model work in films (which is of an extraordinary high standard here), it nudged film makers to explore being bigger and bolder in their approach, and crucially, above all else, it got film goers hungry again, a hankering for more please if you may. Now it has to be said that all that followed 20th Century Fox’s historic blockbuster didn’t run with the baton, in fact most pale into comparison on impact value, but for better or worse (depending on the discerning viewers peccadilloes), Star Wars stands as a bastion of adventure laden entertainment.
It is by definition one of the most successful films in history, George Lucas perhaps didn’t know it at the time, but in what was to become an almost operatic anthology, he didn’t just make a movie, he created a whole new world seeping with style and rich texture. Almost as amazing as the success of the series, is how it has become part of modern day pop culture, anything from religion to everyday speak has at some time or another referenced Lucas’ baby. Ultimately, though, it’s one single thing that made (and still does make) Star Wars so great, it’s that it has the ability to lift the audience into a rousing united feel good cheer; and that is something that few films can ever lay claim too. In 1977 it was an awe inspiring event to watch in the theatre, now here in my middle age it’s an event that is like hugging a dear old friend, a friend that I know will never ever let me down no matter how many times I turn to it. 10/10
No words to say
There’s not much to say about this movie this is *THE* movie that changed it all.
It’s my favourite movie, and not only among the quadrilogy, among all movies; it has everything that can be great in a movie, great characters, great story, great sights, great special effects (they don’t show 23 years) and a mythological background that made us dream for decades now, and that’ll keep us dreaming for a long, long time. Maybe the characters I liked most in this one are Old Obi-Wan Kenobi, wonderfully portrayed by Alec Guinness, and Han Solo, Harrison Ford’s first important role, they’re both great.
Not to mention John Williams’ wonderful score, without of it, the movie wouldn’t have been this great it’s a perfect mix, that’s what it is!
This is the first film I ever saw…
Having read a lot of the other comments here, I have to say it’s interesting to see how many people begin by saying how old they were when they saw “Star Wars” for the first time(Full disclosure: I was three. My parents saw it at a drive-in theatre, and all I can remember of that experience was seeing Darth Vader for the first time, and knowing that he was very, very bad). I think that speaks to its extraordinary impact. “Star Wars” was an event, I suppose in the way that the Beatles on Ed Sullivan for the first time was an event. It dates you, to a degree, but the reason it was important– the reason it remains important– is that it showed you what was possible. For much of the 1960s and 1970s, filmmakers had concentrated on showing us the brutal, heartbreaking truth of our world(The Godfather, Chinatown, Nashville– some of the best movies ever made), and many of them succeeded brilliantly. But there’s a place for dreaming dreams of things that have never been, too, and “Star Wars”, with its epic tale of an Empire and a rebellion in a galaxy far, far away, was the dream a generation didn’t know it wanted to have until George Lucas gave it to us.
Is it juvenile, at times? Simplistic, even? Sure. So’s the truth, sometimes. We want to believe there’s a Force, and that Luke can master its use in time to defeat the forces of darkness. So we believe it. Are the effects a bit dated now? Sure, although I still believe them. Did the success of “Star Wars” possibly kick off the modern blockbuster era, which gives us more and more special-effects-drenched dreck every year? Sadly, it probably did. But the thing the wannabe heirs of “Star Wars” usually lack is the one thing that made “Star Wars” such an event–courage.
Back in 1977, nobody was making movies like this. Nobody thought a film like this, with its mythic storytelling arc and its sweeping vision of intergalactic war, could possibly work…with the exception of George Lucas and his fellow filmmakers.I didn’t know all that at the time, of course. Like I said, I was only three. But having watched more movies than most people my age now, I feel comfortable saying that in its way, “Star Wars” is as much an independent auteur’s film as anything by John Cassavetes or Woody Allen– it has the same sort of daring, the same desire not to settle for less than showing us something we’ve never seen before. A bold, grand sense of old-style craftsmanship infuses everything in “Star Wars”, and the film delivers on the promise contained in its subtitle. At the time, it really was a new hope.
