    Best Star Wars moment

    All the comments in the other Star Wars thread inspired me to start a poll. Vote and then explain your vote.

    Even before you get the poll choices up.... the redemption of Anakin, hands down.

    Damn-- I had included that in my first version of the poll but there was a problem with it and when I re-created it, I left that moment out. Grrrrr.

    A great moment, but not the best in my opinion.

    Since you included it, I fear that Leia's metal bikini will win. I REALLY like that part, but it's not the "best" star wars moment.

    "Luke, I am your father" is not an actual SW quote. He says "No", not "Luke". It's misquoted up there w/ "Play it again, Sam."


    And it's Obi-wan and Qui-jon vs. Darth Maul, not Obi and Ani.

    Redemption

    I voted for Vader tossing the Emperor to his death, only because I already knew about Vader being Luke's father prior to actually seeing the film. I know, I suck, but I was really late in seeing the movies! I probably didn't see the original three until the 90s, early 2000s! But in my defense, I wasn't born until '84!!!

    The redemption of Anakin is the whole crux of the story, it follows a great fight between father and son, we see the Emperor at his coldest and creepiest, the staging of the throne room is fantastically done, and John Williams' score for the scene gives me the chills every time I hear it.

    "So be it...... Jedi" Ian McDiarmid's venom as he spits out the word jedi is tremendous!

    ETA: This whole part of the film makes ROTJ my absolute favorite in spite of the Ewoks!

    ETA2: Granted, when ROTJ came out when I was 7, Ewoks were like crack to me.

    Episode IV, Luke and Leia on the retractable bridge when Leia kisses Luke and says "for luck!" just before they swing over to the door on the other side using Luke's "bat rope".

    Does the Battle of Hoth count as a moment?

    In a morbid and very disturbed way, I always enjoyed the moment where the one Ewok tries to wake up his Ewok friend who was just killed. Nope, I'm sorry, he's not waking up. He's dead.

    I'll pick one from each trilogy - when Han shoots down the Tie Fighters chasing Luke in the Death Star, and the execution of Order 66.

    Yes, but they, and we, didn't know that back then (1977). Good thing it didn't go any farther than it did

    You were not the only one to love that scene.


    I think I am going to vote "other." For me, there were a few quick snippets that I think were my favorite... I am not sure why, but my favorite moments aren't the battle scenes or even the ewok dying scenes (although I did love those) but some simply pieces of dialogue... although the "I love you..." "I know." is up there. You guys know that scene was just like the "sword fight" scene in Indiana, right? She flubbed the line so many times that Ford, who had heard it about 30 times, just went with "I know." Tah dah! Honestly though, I thought the Leia/Solo scenes were the best thing about Star Wars.

    Yeah, and I really did take a Star Wars class at Duke.

    Anyway... my top 3 moments!

    #3...

    Vader: No disintegrations!
    Fett: As you wish.

    #2

    Han: We don't have time to debate this in committee!!
    Leia: I am NOT a committee!!

    And my #1 Star Wars moment....

    Han: Come on, admit it. Sometimes you think I'm all right.
    Leia: Occasionally...Maybe...When you aren't acting like a scoundrel.
    Han: Scoundrel? Scoundrel?...I like the sound of that.
    Leia: Stop that.
    Han: Stop what?
    Leia: Stop that...My hands are dirty.
    Han: My hands are dirty too. What are you afraid of?
    Leia: Afraid?
    Han: You're trembling.
    Leia: I'm not trembling.
    Han: You like me because I'm a scoundrel. There aren't enough scoundrels in your life.
    Leia: I happen to like nice men.
    Han: I'm nice men.
