The 50 Best Star Wars Moments, Ranked by Vulture #SciFiSunday
This fun list from Vulture must have taken some serious time – imagine the sheer number of browser tabs involved!
These days, it feels like the title Star Wars refers to battles about the movies, not in them. The galaxy George Lucas built has been roiled with controversy, with fans, trolls, and maybe even actors seemingly taking sides in a struggle over the series’ direction. It’s why after a lifetime of fandom, I went into The Rise of Skywalker thinking, I’ve got a bad feeling about this — not about the movie itself, but the dark side of the discourse.
But if you’re suffering from Star Wars fatigue, the movies themselves are the best cure around. Even in its most maligned installments, the franchise contains moments of dread and delight that number among the best in the history of sci-fi, fantasy, and action-adventure filmmaking. Here are the 50 finest, from A New Hope to The Rise of Skywalker.
