I never had the chance to see it in the theater originally but, today was amazing!
Nice to see Empire Strikes Back for it's 40th anniversary and to go to the theater again even though things have changed.
The best of three Star Wars films, and the most thought-provoking. After the space opera cheerfulness of the original film, this one plunges into darkness and even despair, and surrenders more completely to the underlying mystery of the story. It is because of the emotions stirred in Empire that the entire series takes on a mythic quality that resonates back to the first and ahead to the third. This is the heart.
It balances bloodshed with charm, spectacle with childlike glee. It's a near flawless movie of its kind.
