People need to stop caring about Star Wars so much. Frankly the movies in general aren't that good. The Empire Strikes Back is the only great movie in the series. Even 'A New Hope' outside of the context of the advancement of movie effects is a 7/10. In large part due to an amazing score which carries a number of bland performances. It was interesting though. Mostly because of how original it is, and how well in bent several genres together. But I don't give it a lot of points for that. Star Wars, like most movies between 1967-80, benefited immensely by getting in on the first wave of the new Hollywood. It's easy to be first and innovative when you get to play by an entire new set of rules.
