The favorite one. Classic that will never get old.
A classic masterpiece, always has a home in my nostalgic heart.
I respect A New Hope as an incredible achievement - how it presents a de facto world with minimal exposition, how it's completely different from science fiction movies at the time, etc. - but it suffers from over-familiarity. I've seen it and references to it so often by now that I basically knew every beat, every line, and not because they are particularly original (in fact, I find the dialog in all the Star Wars films very ordinary indeed). And then there are the changes wrought by Lucas in the Special Edition and even more of them for this 2004 DVD release (to bring it "in line" with the new trilogy, ugh), which I find intrusive and annoying.
