Star Wars Episode 4 : A New Hope

3 1/2 stars

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
Part IV in a George Lucas epic, Star Wars: A New Hope opens with a rebel ship being boarded by the tyrannical Darth Vader. The plot then follows the life of a simple farmboy, Luke Skywalker, as he and his newly met allies (Han Solo, Chewbacca, Ben Kenobi, C-3PO, R2-D2) attempt to rescue a rebel leader, Princess Leia, from the clutches of the Empire. The conclusion is culminated as the Rebels, including Skywalker and flying ace Wedge Antilles make an attack on the Empires most powerful and ominous weapon, the Death Star. (Source: IMDB)
Starring: Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher

Megan's Movie Review:
Okay, I liked this story and it is great, but I don't like the old style movie. I remember watching this a lot when I was younger and it definitely entertained me, but these older movies need to be re-made because they would be sooooo awesome if they were. The acting is terrible in this, except for Harrison Ford. He is great! But I can't stand Luke and Princess Leia. And the fighting is so corny. Still, it is a good movie and it still entertains you.

star wars episode 3

Megan's Movie Review:
This is my favorite Star Wars movie. I love the fight scene at the end but it's also so sad because he hurts his girl! And she dies... and the babies have to be split up. But it is so good and I think it has such a great story with Anakin going bad and following the Sith. The graphics are fabulous and it almost makes you wish that it was real. I would love to have a light saber. :)

A faction of political separatists, led by Count Dooku, attempts to assassinate her. There aren't enough Jedi to defend the Republic against the threat, so Chancellor Palpatine enlists the aid of Jango Fett, who promises that his army of clones will handle the situation. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan Kenobi continues to train the young Jedi Anakin Skywalker, who fears that the Jedi code will forbid his growing romance with Amidala. (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review: 
Again, I like these newer Star Wars movies better than the old ones. They are so much better with all the new technology and it makes it seem realistic. I love the story. It's so sad because you know who Anakin will become. Yoda had a cool fight scene in this movie that was awesome! Good movie. I also really like Hayden Christensen as Anakin. He was a good actor and he seems so young in this movie.

Megan's Movie Review:
I remember when this movie came out, it was awesome! I think the newer movies of star wars are sooo much better than the old ones. The old ones have a good story but I enjoy the technology of the new movies. The graphics are a lot better and it makes it actually seem real. The best part of the movie is the racing scene. I love star wars. I love how creative everything is. It was truly a good movie. The light saber fights were pretty awesome too. Much better than the old ones and its because they actually look like they are fighting in these.

 Megan's Movie Review:
As a family, it is tradition to watch this movie every Christmas Eve. It is hilarious! It never gets old and I love this movie. Chevy Chase is awesome! One of my all time favorite parts of this movie is the squirrel part. It's awesome. The dog, Snots, is disgusting. And it's just plain funny when the old aunt packages her cat. I could go on but it's great and hilarious. There is one part in this movie that we always skip, and it is when he daydreams. Not a good part and I wish they didn't put that in this movie. Oh and also that part in the mall too..

Megan's Movie Review:
This is one of my all time favorite Christmas movies! I remember watching this so much when I was a kid. Now this isn't the greatest movie ever but it sure is enjoyable. It is pretty cheesy and corny but that's okay. It is funny and entertaining and you can't help but love this movie when you are a kid. You want to be like him and "kick butt". But.. don't become like him in real life, he is a punk..that's a different story. I did feel though that at the beginning of this movie, everyone was mean to him and even his uncle, like when he called him a little jerk. No way.. I wouldn't allow someone else to call my son that. Anyways, good movie for Christmas.

Megan's Movie Review: This was a good movie and I really liked watching it. We saw it in 3-D and I wouldn't recommend it. Most of the movie wasn't in 3-D and even when it was, I wasn't impressed. I did love the racing scenes in this movie. I wished there were more because I felt that was the coolest part of the whole movie. This new actor, Garrett Hedlund, was actually pretty good. I liked him in this. It was kind of weird to see Jeff Bridges all computerized but it was only because they had to make him look younger. The machines in this movie were awesome and so neat looking. I liked how when they would race or drive they had a "line" follow them. I don't know what they are called (can't remember). Good movie, I want this as part of my collection.

Did any one like this movie? How about the old movie? (I never saw it but how was it compared to this one?)
