    One of my favorites as well. It was going to be my next nomination
    I cannot remember this... I know I seen it but I feel it needs a re watch

    ORIGINAL or Director cut guys? Which should I get?

    There's the Special Edition, go for that. But either way it's a genius movie.

    Return is my favorite Star Wars movie. It completely epitomizes the universe for me like no other SW film. I don't understand the acclaim Empire gets. Is it just the Vader scene? Cause there's literally no plot in Empire, zero. Nothing happens. It's a lot of fun, sure. But Luke goes off to train with Yoda, then feels his friends are in trouble, goes back unprepared, gets nearly killed and his friends have to rescue him instead. The end?

    By the way, even though the rules state "no documentaries" I believe Koyaanisqatsi is not exactly a doc nor a narrative feature, it's something in between and experimental, so I feel it should be allowed.
