SW - Empire Strikes Back

"No. I am your father."

The Empire Strikes Back (later retitled Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back) is a 1980 American space opera directed by George Lucas. It is the next of the original trilogy and easily surpasses the other two.


The Empire has struck back against the Rebels by sending probe droids on the ice planet of Hoth.

Why It's Better than the Star Wars Holiday Special and Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

  1. Amazing score by John Williams just like its predecessor.
  2. The duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader is awesome.
  3. There are no horrid musical numbers like in The Star Wars Holiday Special.
  4. The quote "No, I am your father", is one of the most memorable movie quotes of all time.
  5. The opening scene just goes above and beyond, with the Star Destroyer sending Probe Droids to Hoth.
