The Empire Strikes Back remains an extremely powerful and well-made installment in the Star Wars series, not taking even a single step backwards in the sheer breathtaking adventure of the original film. While Han and Leia escape in the Millennium Falcon, Luke travels to Dagobah in search of Yoda. It is fruitless trying to argue 'which is best' in a trilogy, because the first one, in this case 'Star Wars', starts it all and has to be the 'father'. The bit rate is high, and the picture is nothing short of superb. However, torrented versions may be altered from Harmy's versions, and may contain malicious content, so beware.
It is there twice- 1st is the latest version of the composited one and 2nd is the very same clip with a layer of Puggo Grande added to it. It will take some time to download these! The fantastic, strange worlds were presented almost like we were there too. And besides that, if and when George Lucas runs out of new prequels to release, and maybe if he someday begins to run low on how many hundreds of millions of dollars he has, he could go right back and make these in-between scenes into full length films. Obviously, I can't discuss this without giving things away to those few who don't know what happens. After the surprise attack on the rebel base, Luke Skywalker splits with Han, Leia, et al. .

While there had been other Sci-Fi movies with a theme of conflict in outer space, the 'Star Wars' trilogy filled our imaginations like no other movies before them. Is that meant to be Luke? The Empire is not beaten by the destruction of one ship it's power is barely dented in fact. Indeed, the Imperial Walkers are some of the most recognizable machines from the entire Star Wars saga, right up there with the Millennium Falcon and the Death Star. If you're one of those few, then believe me: your ignorance is precious enough to be worth guarding until you see the film. Where the first one was a victorious uprising this is, as the title suggests, the time in history where the Empire strikes back against the uprising. This is a truly wondrous film, and serves as a constant reminder that just because a movie is expensive and a blockbuster doesn't mean that it has to be shallow and two dimensional. I am so behind the times with these.
But somehow it doesn't matter. The conclusion, with a lightsaber duel between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, is truly one of the most suspenseful and dramatic scenes in the entire series. Even so, I would like to express my opinion that Yoda is more realistic and more interesting here as a puppet than in the newer films as a computer generated image. Nothing before had approached the sheer size of the space ships depicted here, huge cities traveling all over the galaxy. Aliens sitting around a tavern, enjoying drinks and speaking in all sorts of languages.
Meanwhile the other half is a lot more action orientated and has comedy and good new characters such as Bobba Fett. Oh yeah, speaking of Yoda, can I just complain for a minute? I am so behind the times with these. Cut anything and the film would suffer. All Star Wars content, images, and likenesses are the property of their respective copyright owner. As of a few days ago, The Empire Strikes Back just went from v1. Overall this is as good as Star Wars at it's heart, but the darker nature of the film makes it much better. The second is too grainy in my opinion.
You'll notice he made precious few changes to episode V. This film will undoubtedly entertain viewers of all ages from start to finish. There is also the addition of a surprisingly fitting love story. The film is ambivalent in its attitude towards Yoda, anyway. When George Lucas gave his Star Wars trilogy a fresh coat of varnish in 1997 he felt he had to justify the expense by making needless changes.
My five children were all pre-teens when 'The Empire Strikes Back' came to the theater. However the power of the dark side should not be underestimated and many dark truths are revealed as the threat of the Empire looms large. This will be a compressed standard definition version. Instead we end with the promise that the rescue will some day occur. Yoda is a good addition despite sounding like Fozzie Bear! The addition of a dark strand to the film makes it all the better as it can be enjoyed as a story and not just a fun sci-fi film with good effects.
Murry Sparkles said: Harmy there seems to be a problem with the third link, everytime i try it says the file is temporary unavailable. Once we get the impressive Hoth battle over with the film meanders and crawls along - padding out its running time with predictable romantic sparring and an extended and dull sequence on Degobah. Finally get to use up a good chunk of my Usenet quota. This was my favourite touch. Let me know what you think. The retention on my usenet provider is more than a year… They are there. When I first saw Yoda when watching The Empire Strikes Back again, I was really struck by how different he looked from in the newer movies.
In The Empire Strike Back, the first thing that we are treated to is the traditional scrolling text along a background of stars, depicting what has happened between the last film and this one, and reminding us of the things that were mentioned in the last film but never explained. Things finally pick up again at Cloud City but not enough to justify the worship this film receives. Which are considered the best versions to watch and enjoy as is? And the light sabres of the Jedi Knights. All five Jedis - Luke, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Vader, and the Emperor - find that their conflicting instincts are all entirely wrong. Smart-ass to the last drop. The battle scene where the rebels fight the Imperial Walkers on the ice planet is an incredibly well-made battle scene, not only in the way that it was put together so convincingly using models, but that the machines themselves are so creatively made. Thanks for the list Mallwalker, and your uploads as well.
This one leaves me as cold as the snow on Hoth. Luke's human idealism is vindicated, but his supernatural powers, just this once, are not. However what gets added to that is a much darker strand. Which are considered the best versions to watch and enjoy as is? What the hell was up with the Jedi training? The two work well together and come together well for a great finale. His unadulterated version of the original Star Wars trilogy is called the Despecialized Edition—fan preservation films that piece together multiple video and audio sources to create the closest thing we have to high-def theatrical versions of the films.
