In my opinion, The Empire Strikes Back is the best movie ever made. On first glance, people say "this is just a stupid sci-fi movie." That's where they are wrong. ESB has one of the best stories ever. The film is much darker than the first Star Wars and also has much better acting. The visuals, etc. are also superb. The thing that makes ESB so great is its story and acting. Go rent or buy this film. ESB is fantastic.
