"Best Star Wars movie I have seen so far! The highlights for me were; Yoda's death, Han solo returning to life after being frozen by Jabba, Luke first getting told that Leia is his sister, Luke Vs Darth Vader, the war on the battle on the moon of endor, the emperor's death, aniken Skywalkers (Darth Vader's) death, and the death stars explosion. Every part of this movie was perfect. Han, Leia, Chewbacca, Luke, Lando, Yoda, Aniken Skywalker (Darth Vader), and the cute little furballs on the moon of endor (they were my favourite). I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes avengers or marvel or similar. I hope Star Wars Episode 7 The Force Awakens is just as good!"

Harrison Ford is excellent in all the Star Wars movies and it's also worth checking him out as Indiana Jones! Another brilliant fantasy trilogy can be found with The Lord of the Rings and for more epic sci-fi action, battles and bounty hunter's then Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok is pretty epic! Listen out for Mark Hamill in The Boy and the Heron.
