In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is NUMBER 1:
#1: The Empire Strikes Back
Surprise, surprise. I think this is most everyone’s favorite. I can’t help pick this as my favorite. The world is already established, so you don’t need to get to know all of the characters. The budget is bigger, so more sets and effects. There is more humor, more action, more everything. Not to mention Yoda, Lando and Boba Fett (not dying from a burp joke). Star Wars is what made me sit up and take notice. Empire is what made me love this universe.
Thanks to everyone for taking this journey with me on the road to The Force Awakens. There might be some honorable mentions and follow-ups to this list in the weeks to come. I hope you all enjoy The Force Awakens. And, as always, May The Force Be With You!!!
