Star Wars Challenge Day 20

Day 20! Wow, I've been doing this for that long?
Well, I think that's awesome!:)
Anyway, today's topic is "Favorte ANH moment"
P.S this was the first Star Wars film I watched! :)

My absolute favorite scene in A New Hope is when Luke destroyes the Death Star. It is a really action packed, adrenaline rush scene where we begin to see Luke's prowess with the Force. I just love Luke's reaction to what he just did- astonishment. He looked completely shocked, most likely thinking- 'oh crap, I just did it.' I also like in the scene where Obi-Wan is telling him to use the Force and let go; then afterwards, while a shocked Luke bobs in space, Obi-Wan says "The Force will be with you. Always." - Obi-Wan's best line in the Original Trilogy!

This scene is so powerful- there is no dialogue but we can see the longing in Luke's face and the longing in the music that grows as he stares out at the suns, the light playing across his face. Wonderful scene, wonderful music, and wonderful acting. Also, I know many people find him whiny but really, he's not. He's stuck in the middle of nowhere and he's constantly getting disappointed and it frustrates him- totally understandable.

And of course, I love the scene where Luke gets his father's lightsaber. After watching the Prequel Trilogy we know what horrors have been inflicted with this blade and can only hope Luke will use it for good.

Oh, and I love the parts where people keep making snide remarks to Han Solo about his ship(What a piece of junk). I remember finding that hilarious when I first watched it.
Also the conversation Han has with the Imperials when they're trying to rescue Leia- "Boring conversation anyway. LUKE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE COMPANY!!!"
