It was 30 years ago today...

I wasn't alive in 1980 to witness The Empire Stikes Back in theatres, but I do own the DVD and understand that the fifth chapter in the Star Wars saga is not only the best of the six films, its also one of the best sequels ever made. Not since The Godfather Part II has a sequel triumphed over its predecessor, but stand alone as a work of art, so happy 30th birthday to one of the coolest and greatest sequels ever.

I went and saw this at the Blue Sky drive in which is long since gone. My brother was going with his Girlfriend and I begged her to take me to see it. :)

Best film of the series. Although it's amazing for being a hero Luke Skywalker sure was a whiny pussy.
