Crop And Save
Star Wars (1977)
The first space opera entertainment....
I was 10 years old when my dad shows me that piece of art. As a kid, and when we see star wars for the first time, we discover an other world, we passed nights to dream about it, being the hero of that world, simulating fights with light saber... Of course i'm not from the star wars generation, i grew up with the second trilogy. But that first trilogy and especially this movie got an unique atmosphere. The deterioration of my old VHS copy shows the love i've got for this movie, that we can't see now from digital files.
The story is the strength of that one, we find a narrative plan reused by many sci-fi movies later..
The directing is classical, very academic. The development is linear and understandable.
Sets are the strong point of this episode. All cult for my taste. Editing is good with this innovative transition effect. Obviously, special effects look aged but they're still convincing.
Obviously, what would be Star Wars without this perfect music. Each character has his own theme that blends extraordinarily well with the kind of space opera.
A good casting, including a convincing Mark Hamill.
Final note: 9/10
