Movie Review: STAR WARS IV: A New Hope

May the Fourth be with you!

Today is STAR WARS day! May the Fourth! In the spirit of this I will be doing a review of STAR WARS IV: A New Hope. You may notice how I am starting with the "fourth" (Wow, I am really connecting things today.) movie, that is because I will be reviewing them the way they were made not the way they are "supposed" to go. Why I am doing this:
1. They first three that were made are SO much better than the prequels.
2. If you watch the first three that they made FIRST (The only way you should watch them!) No surprises are spoiled.
This is how you should watch the STAR WARS movies:
A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
The Phantom Menace*
Attack of the Clones*
Revenge of the Sith*
The Force Awakens
The Last Jedi (Okay, this one is not out yet, but, when it is out...)
*You don't even need to watch the ones with the asterisk.
Anyway, here is my review.

STAR WARS IV: A New Hope (1977):

(Also titled  STAR WARS, or STAR WARS: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker)
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
The Empire has taken over, and has plans that will change the galaxy. When Princess Leia's ship is attacked by the Empire she quickly hides vital information in a droid that she hopes will reach an old general. The droid runs into Luke Skywalker, a young man who has to help his uncle even though he wants to go to the university. Luke's life will never be the same again.
Genre: Science Fiction, Adventure, Action,
Costumes: 8, Stormtroopers and Darth Vader's costumes are pretty cool, but my favorite is Princess Leia's.
Script: 8, only one or two bad words. "These are not the droids you are looking for..."
Directed by: George Lucas
Produced by: Gary Kurtz
Written by: George Lucas
Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker
Harrison Ford as Han Solo
Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin
Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi
David Prowse as Darth Vader
Peter Mayhew as Chewy
Anthony Daniels as C3PO
Kenny Baker as R2D2
Music: 10, I love the theme!
Music by: John Williams
Quotes: 10, "Close the blast doors! Close the blast doors!...Open the blast doors!"
Notes: Now, you might think, "Star Wars? I don't think I will like that." That is what I thought, but, there is so much more to it! Here is how much I like it, it made it's way to my #2 favorite movies spot!
Storyline: 8, there is some fighting, death, scary images, flirting, but that is it! It is very clean. A really great movie.
Good For: Families, everyone!
Overall Score: 9!

Something that I do that is very weird is that everytime I see a STAR WARS movie, I have to drink chocolate milk. It is very weird, but I've always done it.
