Scottie Ferguson's rating of the film Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

The best of all six Star Wars films. "Empire" is the heart of the series, building on the mythos established in the original movie yet expanding it for future sequels and prequels. And which of George Lucas' other creative brainchildren has so many iconic moments? The Battle of Hoth, Han Solo frozen in carbonite, Yoda's first appearance, and the quintessential "I am your father"... the list goes on and on.
