Movie Mania: Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope

Hello my lovely readers! This post marks the kick-off for this months theme. I will review all the Star Wars films out there. So let’s begin with the very first one ever made: Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope.   The Plot: A long time ago, in a galaxy far away a civil war is raging. The Rebels managed to steal the plans for the Death Star, a space station so powerful, it could destroy an entire planet. Princess Leia manages to send the plans with R2D2 before she is captured. Where will the droid land? And will the people there help him to save the princess and the entire universe?   The Rating: This might be the most iconic sci-fi film ever. I can’t help but marvel at how amazing this film turned out considering the limited amount of effects available at the time. This movie was visionary and influenced the entire genre. What is there not to like about it? We’ve got some lovely quirky characters: a bad-ass princess, a young hero, the gangster, robots… The story is gripping and you can’t wait to find out where Luke Skywalker’s journey will lead him. Even if you are not the biggest science fiction fan, you are able to enjoy the film even it’s just for the sense of humor. To be honest, I don’t think there’s anything I don’t like about this movie. A New Hope is more than just a piece of sci-fi history. Even in 2018 it never fails to amaze and impress. Truely a classic!

  1. Nice review! I completely agree. We’re so used to special effects and CGI ruling big sci-fi movies, we often forget about where it started. I’m always blown away by what George Lucas and his team pulled off, and can only imagine what people felt seeing this in the 1970s.

      Exactly my thoughts. It’s really impressive and I’ll never stop appreciating the effort that was put into those films – no wonder they had such a big influence on the entire genre.
