Finally, and I could (and actually have, come to think of it) write an entire paper on this mere eight minutes, we have Luke vs. Darth Vader on Cloud City. This is the best lightsaber duel in the series, and I’m not accepting any other arguments. It starts with a spine-chilling taunt from Vader, “You are not a Jedi yet.”, escalates beautifully through Vader’s exploitation of Luke’s shortcomings, and ends with the most climactic and iconic declarative sentence in the cinema history (sorry, Gone with the Wind): “No, I am your father.” The cinematography, the stakes, the dialogue, the fighting itself — this duel is the greatest sequence of the entire saga.

This scene alone makes it my favorite in the series. I was 11 when I saw this in the theater and I was utterly floored.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
