So recently I watched the first Star Wars A New Hope (1977) because I wanted to watch the series in order.
But as much as I may find myself intrigued by stop-motion, rotoscoping, or what-have-you, this movie never really clicked with me in that special way other movies have.
I mean I'm sure all of you know the story of the first Star Wars film so I'm not going to give a full synopsis. I've already reviewed two of the Star Wars films on my list so you all already know my thoughts on the franchise as a whole so talking about the movie that started all this 40 year long hullaballoo I think the thing to realize is that this film really just sets the standard for every film that has come since it in the big budget hollywood film industry.
