      I'm sure someone else has said it here but, Vader is NOT a hint at him being a father. It was derived from Invader. I get irritated when people use that argument and I can't help it.

      I think the Kessel run is about acceleration meaning that the millenium falcon got to a specific speed in 13 parsecs

      I knew it the whole time but Cimemawins it's great that people know that palpatine ordered them to miss on the deathstar because he wanted to find the hidden base. Most of the people think they miss because they suck but in reality they have great aim

      @Dade Lee Murphy Also, per wikipedia "The film was originally released in 1977 with the title Star Wars. The subtitle Episode IV – A New Hope was only added to the opening crawl in subsequent re-releases.[96][17] Official sources state that the change was made at the theatrical re-release of April 10, 1981,[97][98][a] but the subtitle was first introduced in the 1979 book The Art of Star Wars.[99]"

      @Dade Lee Murphy Wow, man. Even I'm not so angered by giving the first movie an updated title, and I'm firmly in the "Han shot first" camp.

    "come on, you didn't know the name of the Cantina Band?" I do now! And I think that it's one of the BEST "useless piece of trivia" I've ever heard!

      I saw the Film yesterday. Now I know I can speak every word of the movie. I am 15 and a new hope is the best Part of star wars. I think the "Not so good" special Effekts are so charming. An the cast is brilliant😍😍😍😍😍

        8:58... Williams is using the DIES IRAE theme (which is also used on Weathertop in Fellowship of the Ring.)
        Don't know of it? REad up on it. It's a very old melody, and it has been used in some films too.
        It's in Symphony Fantastique by Berlioz as well, 5th movement.

              OMG I've seen this a MILLION times and NEVER noticed (am I crazy?)
              that C3P0 actually says "SHUTTING UP, SIR." in response to Uncle Owen??!
              JUST NOW? I"m 43!!!!! FML!! I thought he said "Shut up, sir?" as if he was surprised at being told that.... so weird.

                    Obi-Wan really never DID own Artoo.
                    Artoo was first and foremost the property of The Royal House of Naboo and it's succeeding lieges. Then, towards the Clone Wars, Padme started "lending" him to Ani, which eventually turned into a very passionate friendship (Anakin could probably easily relate to service droids, what with having been a slave before) as Artoo became a kind of mascot for the 501st. Then, after Order 66, Artoo was "given" by the Royal House of Naboo to Senator Organa. Following the Battle of Scarif, salvage laws (I guess, if you wanna count Tatooine as 'lawful') meant that Artoo was no longer owned, until he was purchased by the Lars and eventually became became Luke's faithful sidekick.

                      I had a thought about the thermal exhaust port, it's a plot hole but not in the standard way of thinking. It's a hole important to the plot

                        I like how over the years they have established that stormtrooper gear was terrible and is really hard to use, and the only time the stormtroopers did well in the movies was when it was the remains of the 501st, the supplementary material for this franchise is fantastic

                            Sometimes, your positively is too much. Pretty sure Lucas himself said he didn't know if Vader was going to be his father. It just happened that he went for that plot instead of something else.

                            After all, he didn't know he was going to make a sequel... or rather be able to, after he made episode 4.

                              The original Star Wars trilogy is the best 3 movie series of all time. No one will ever change my mind.

                                Fun fact!! The person who charged up and fires the Death Star stalled for time because he felt responsible for the deaths of millions and hesitated to do it again. So in a way he was the first Death Star was able to be destroyed. The unknown hero.....

                                  Those of us who saw this movie when it first came out STILL refer to it simply as Star Wars. That was the name of the film. None of this "Episode IV A New Hope" crap. Star Wars. That's it.

                                    I want to see a STAR WARS movie set in present day. One that starts with "Today in a Galaxy Far, Far, Away ", instead of "A Long Time Ago ".

                                      OBI WAN never did own R2D2, ANAKIN did. I've always wished someone would just download R2D2's memory. If someone (character within the story) would download it's memory would have an eye witness account of the entire "SKYWALKER SAGA ". I've NEVER understood why no one ever has.

                                          8:12 - right, you win this but it's been less than 20 years since the Old Republic and the Jedi Council - are we really saying that it's been distilled by the Emperor and Empire propaganda to a "hokey religion"? And that this guys believes it when he KNOWS Vader?

                                            2:48 - I always hear R2 as a short, angry Glaswegian and the foul-language to boot.

                                                    I honestly hate admit: the immersion and worldbuilding in THIS Star Wars movie, for me, is the best.

                                                        When you commented on miniatures, I laughed. It was because that CGI fooled you. The original did not look that good and was a few seconds of it crawling over the ridge with a scene swipe before showing any detail. Your brain and eyes were fooled. I have the original footage of the film, so I have the perfect reference material.

                                                          I say "NO" to addition of CGI to the original. The original was the way it was seen first. It is the one I like. The CGI takes away from the value of what was great about the time in which it was shot. CGI ruins it.

                                                                                    “What will happen to me? You will be a Jedi.”

                                                                                    “YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO DESTROY THE SITH NOT JOIN THEM! BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE! NOT LEAVE IT IN DARKNESS!”

                                                                                      Then the Star Destroyer appears.

                                                                                      And it just keeps going...

You don't have to let someone shoot first to shoot them in self defense. Lucas is a PC idiot for that edit.
