So, you know how ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ is a great movie right? Well, I think i only just realized that when i revisited this gem of a sci-fi blockbuster with a couple of friends this past weekend… I couldn’t help but get vocally excited for the better part of the movie:
“Wow, this movie’s got all the drama, all the family intrigue, all the dark internal luke skywalker struggles, all the snow monsters, all the giant asteroid worms, all the han-solo-freezing-in-carbonite, all the cut-off hands and floating cities in the sky – this movie is just taking a huge dump on all the new Star Wars movies’ – Me, last weekend.
The part where Luke’s x-wing fighter is crashing through thick, dense, grey mist and R2D2 is like “FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU” and Luke’s like “Oops, I cant see SHIIIIIIIT” and R2D2’s like “I told you this was a bad ideeeaaa” and Luke’s like “I’ll just put on the landing program, then we will surely figure out where to land safely on this PLANET COVERED IN SWAMPY JUNGLE AND FOG” and we as viewers are like “WHEN WILL THEY HIT A TREEEEE?” and then they just crash quietly into a swamp right next to Yoda’s crib… that part is so good. Defnitely my favourite Star Wars movie.
Speaking of audio-visual treats,
Without further ado, i give you, the video for Seasick:
