STARS WARS: 8

I had never seen more than a few scattered parts of the original release on video, so I'm reviewing this as a 1st time viewer. Since I've never seen any of the three, I plan to see the entire trilogy on the big screen during this 20th anniversary replay.

Good overall movie, although not Star Trek . . . but then what is :) . . . a simple plot and routine story line wrapped in some good special effects (for the time) which must be viewed on the big screen to be done justice (if, like me, you've never seen it on the big screen).
