Their Best Scene: The Empire Strikes Back
Interesting
Arguably, the best film of the Original Star Wars trilogy (if not the entire Saga) is The Empire Strikes Back. Where A New Hope was a fun adventure, the sequel took things to a new level by upping the threat level, and providing engaging drama between characters. While there's a lot to love about this film, and many memorable scenes, I'm here to talk about the film's best scene and how it encompasses all the central themes for not only Empire Strikes Back, but the entire Star Wars saga.

So I decided to do a list of science fiction movies I think are just perfect.
