Star Wars, Episode V: Empire Strikes Back – Special Edition (quick movie review)

star-wars-episode-v-empire-strikes-back-special-editionI find this one to be the least offensive of the special editions.  Hell, I think I’d go so far as to say that I like the I like that we get to see the monster in the cave on Hoth, and I like that they made Cloud City look like a city instead of some place where nobody lives or works.  They didn’t change much – I think this (like the entire series) is where they got the special edition right.  On the other hand, that part where they show Darth Vader going back to his Super Star Destroyer seems awkward – that line, “Tell them to prepare for my arrive” or whatever the hell he says doesn’t really sound like James Earl Jones.  I also think that in every single version of the Empire Strikes Back, you hear Luke’s lightsaber close down in the cave on Hoth before you actually see it, but maybe I’m just imagining things.

Anyway, Empire rocks, and for the most part, I think the Special Edition modifications are helpful rather than hurtful.
