Well to choose a few...and not in any order!!


1) Luke's rescue from Cloud city's underdome and the chase after in 'Empire' (Just brilliant)
2) Luke and Leia's scene in the Ewok village from 'Jedi - The Brother s revelation
3) "Where did you dig up that old fossil?" - I love that whole conversation...And one I'm always repeating for some reason
4) "The force is with you young Skywalker, but you are not a Jedi yet! - Love it
5 The very last scene in 'Empire'. From the shot of the Falcon connected to the medical frigate, to Luke and Leia looking out to the stars. Their lives changed forever. The music, the lack of dialog, the colours.....but it's the music that makes that scene. All my faveourite themes played out in such a moving way. So sad

Man I love that film!!

In no particular order...

1. Near the end of the Battle of Hoth, an AT-AT pauses, pivots to the left and almost casually shoots a snowspeeder down. I just love the animation of the walker in that shot.
2. Luke's charge on the retreating Vader late in their fight in RotJ. The wide tracking shot, the choir and musical use of the lightsabers is amazing. Which brings us to...
3. Parallels between the duels in TESB and RotJ. In each, the fighters start out calm, but calculating and looking for an advantage. Then one of them just gets pissed off and starts swinging wildly until the other fellow is backed against the wall and drops his weapon with finality.
4. The asteroid chase. Potatoes, tumbling bodies and more evidence that TIE pilot training doesn't include a warning against flying in tight formation through narrow enclosed spaces.
5. On Endor, when Leia gets shot and felt up in the space of three seconds.

top moment for me is in jedi where luke throws away his saber, and refuses the emperor's temptation being willing to die to prove his faith there is still a little spark of anakin in vader, by saying " You've failed your highness, i'll never turn to the dark side. I am a jedi, like my father before me."

“Always loved Vader’s wordless self sacrifice. Another shitty, clueless, revision like Greedo and young Anakin’s ghost. What a fucking shame.” -Simon Pegg.

I don't have an order, but here goes:

- Luke: I don't believe it. Yoda: That, is why you fail. (The whole essence of the Force, if you ask me)
- Darth Vader: I am your father. Luke: No! That's not true! That's IMPOSSIBLE!
- Leia: I love you. Han: I know.
- Emperor: Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey to the dark side will be complete!
- Luke taking Vader's mask off.

I also think that the binary sunset, the opening Star Destroyer sequence, and the Han/Greedo sequence (before it was meddled with) were up there.

Ask me about the music, and you'll get a whole 'nother story...

1 - Han shooting Greedo. First.
2 - The Asteroid Field - best.music.ever.
3 - Luke blowing up the Death Star.
4 - The Trash Compactor - loved it since I was a kid, for some unknown "I need therapy" reason.
5 - Vader & Luke's duel in Empire.

Now, back to my crack pipe.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Goering

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

I agree about the Asteroid field music being the best. It ROCKS!!!

Yeah, it's pretty exciting music. When I was typing about each Star Wars moment, I was imagining the music that accompanied them. I don't think I can imagine these moments without the music. I love the music that plays when Yoda pulls the X-Wing out of the swamp. It's like a triumph of the Force over Luke's doubt. I seriously think that could be my favourite moment:

"I don't believe it."

"That, is why you fail."
