Chris' Film Club: The Empire Strikes Back

The film I've chosen for the film club today is The Empire Strikes Back, which was released today in 1980, making it 33 years old! The film (the 2nd in George Lucas' original Star Wars trilogy) is often held up as being the best of the bunch. It displays several qualities that Lucas failed to replicate in his more recent Star Wars films: character development, decent acting, interesting plotting and not Hayden Christensen.

The film, directed by Irvin Kirshner and starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams, is an all time classic and features one of cinema's most famous twists......... Bruce Willis is a ghost!
