Two days from now after the long-awaited episode of 'The Force Awakens' is finally showing in theatres and I've yet to have that film until I go see it on Monday night. This list of the top twenty scenes of Star Wars are still counted down for the whole movie. Everyone should know that part one and part two are now published in this blog, we'll be continuing to look at number #10 to #6 on this section. The fact remains that we are so close of reaching the end of this list through No. #5 to No. #1. You better wait till tomorrow or after.
A nightmarish scene that demonstrates the Empire's power to bring fear and rule of destruction. The scene where a captive Princess Leia is forced to witness her home planet's demise by the Death Star after disclosing the hidden Rebel base that shows how the battle station is fully operational when it comes to destroying peaceful planets like Alderaan. The worst case of scenario is that Grand Moff Tarkin is responsible for ordering its obliteration even after knowing it wasn't the location of the Rebels. It affectedly killed millions that were on the planet and so much it caused a disturbance in the force as Obi Wan as he puts it "As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced".
After the rip-roaring moments of the Battle of Hoth and the destruction of the Rebel base, the Millennium Falcon is attempting to outrun the Imperial fleet of Super Star Destroyers and TIE Fighters. Han Solo heads to an asteroid belt to evade capture, much to the discomfort of everyone on board even C3PO finds it impossible in the survival of the odds in an asteroid belt when is told by Han "Never tell me the odds". It continues to ensue the chase with many TIE fighters being blown to bits for oncoming asteroids as Han and the others seek refuge in a cave below on a giant asteroid and find themselves dealing with Mynocks and having to escape the jaws of a giant space slug which Han is realised upon saying "This is no cave". This scene really put the special effects forward with the score by John Williams intact as a definitive moment of Star Wars.
"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." Then STAR WARS lights up the screen and John Williams epic score announces the arrival of something truly special. This opening scene that starts after the introduction crawl, demonstrates the size and power of the rebels compared to the Imperial fleet. the camera position shows a tiny rebel ship being bombarded by laser fire by a star destroyer that literally swallows the rebel spaceship whole and then we are treated to invading Stormtroopers breaching the ship's interior and Darth Vader makes his grand villainous entrance. He surveys the carnage and continues to hunt for Princess Leia and the stolen plans. 38 years ago, this introduced us to a new world of science fiction and embarked us a scene that no other moviegoer has to forget.
