Favorite Star Wars moments and scenes

Recommended Posts

I'm writing an essay about why I found The Force Awakens so extremely boring and unsatisfying. Thus I started to make a list of scenes and moments that made the PT and the OT so extraordinary. It would be nice to know what your favorite moments and scenes in the saga are.

Top 20 best Star Wars scenes and moments: 

1. "They're still comin' through!" -- Qui Gon and Obi Wan fighting the battle droids (Episode I)

2. "But You're Not a Jedi Yet..." -- Father Darth vs. Luke (Episode V)

3. "Did He Crash it?" -- Podracing (Episode I)

4. "In our moment of triumph?" -- Attacking the Death Star (Episode IV)

5. "There is another..." -- Luke Departs Dagobah (Episode V)

6. The Tragedy About Darth Plagueius the Wise (Episode III)

7. "The we'll see each other again" -- Anakin Leaves his Mother (Episode I)
8. "We'll Handle this..." -- Qui Gon and Obi Wan vs Darth Maul (Episode I)

9. "You are the Sith Lord" -- Palpatine reveals himself (Episode III)

10. "Artoo, we need to be going up, not down!" -- Battle of Coruscant (Episode III)

11. The music played during the End credits (Episode V)

12. "Master Sifo-Dyas was killed almost ten years ago..." -- Obi Wan on Kamino (Episode II)

13. "I've been trained in your Jedi Arts" -- General Grievous vs Obi Wan (Episode III)

14. "So be it... Jedi" -- Darth Vader vs Luke (Episode VI)

15. "That armor's too strong for our blasters!" -- Battle of Hoth (Episode V)

16. "A more civilized age" -- Obi Wan and Luke (Episode IV)

17. "We Meet Again..." -- Obi Wan vs Darth Vader (Episode IV)

18. "Fear leads to anger..." -- Anakin at the Jedi Council (Episode I)

19. "Execute Order 66" -- Order 66 (Episode III)

20. "I'm not Afraid" -- Luke having dinner with Yoda (Episode V)

  • The beginning, Qui-Gon using his lightsaber to cut through the blast doors.
  • Qui-Gon Obi-Wan and Jar Jar going through the planet core is an amazing underated action sequences 
  • I know it's incredibly corny but the scene when Anakin first mets Padme was quoted and reenacted over and over by me and my sisters and I know it by heart and it has nostalgic value. 
  • The dinner table scene, same reason as above ^

When they arrive at Mos Eisley. It's not a particularly special moment, but it just blew my mind that this was a fully realized world, and the work and dedication that had gone into it still paid off almost forty years later.


...I only watched these movies last year for the first time...

Lots upon lots of great MOMENTS in rogue one. I'm not sure if there is any SCENE in it that truly stood out since many scenes were not allowed to really play through. For example: the emotional scene in which Jones is listening to her father's hologram was interrupted by a scene were 1/10 of the power of the Death Star was demonstrated. Same goes for the scene in which they steal the plans. 

Favorite scenes from RO:

1. "I'm one with the force and the force is with me" -- The asian guy sacrificing himself during the battle. Very emotional. 

2. Hammer! -- Rebel hammership dealing with two star destroyers

3. darth Vader saving the day

4. X-wings smashing into the shield during the battle

5. On the beach watching the mushroom cloud.
