-luke NOT crossing the rubicon, refuses to let his emotions get the better of him and telling the emperor that he will never join the dark side.
-Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker - after throwing it all away and spending most of his life ruining himself as much as his friends and loved ones, makes the ultimate sacrifice. perfectly staged, scored and shot. THANKS HARMY!!
-vaders funeral - early example of 'closure'
-the celebration - i like yub nub. i like seeing the rebels celebrate. i like the idea of seeing a group of characters we all came to know and love - those in the flesh and in spirit. Thanks harmy!!
I love all four of these scenes, when Luke tells the Emperor that he has lost because he won't turn to the dark side, even after years of watching the films. It still suprises me when the Emperor uses Sith Lightning to attack Luke, as the look on his face is that he is not phased by Luke's decision not to turn to the dark side and you know something is going to happen but not that.
I like yub nub too, why they felt it necessary to replace it with that awful piece of music when they "remastered" the trilogy is beyond me. That is why I bought the trilogy box set that included the Original Theatrical releases on the bonus disc, although the films are in 4:3 A little adjustment of my televisions settings and I am able to watch them at a reasonable size with reasonable quality sound.
Which is how I remember them as a child, yeah the film is a little grainy but that doesn't bother me it just adds to the overall effect to me, also you don't get all those CGI scenes and adjustments they insisted on adding in all the films in particular ANH which to me is a real Kick in teeth to the Special effects and puppet guys works. Also what is the deal with the whole Jabba at the falcon scene not necessary anyway, let alone the whole walking over the tail bit so stupid.
Han already knows the deal with Jabba and expresses that quite well, he needs to pay him off end of.
And Han definitely shot first!
