I've always loved that initial lightsaber battle between Vader and Obi-Wan because it's pure saber on saber action. No force powers, very little poncey twiddling about trying to look flash. You can actually follow what the strawberry float is going on, whereas the prequel battles tend to be a mass of spinny florescent blades that are functionally indistinguishable from a rave.
Not to mention that fact that about 75% of the PM fight is 2 on 1. The heroism. No wonder people wound up rooting for Darth Maul.
i know that its an old film, and the problems they had with the actual sabers breaking when hitting each other and the effects used in the fight were limited...
in my starwars fan boy head its because both are quite old, i doubt obi wan was keeping up with saber skills on tatooine, vader just runs about intimidating poor imperial navy officers and probably doesn't give a strawberry float about old school sabering. neither use the force because both match each other so whats the point.
Caved and ordered the Blu Rays from Amazon. That's Tuesday and Wednesday sorted!
IV, V, II, III, VI... then one if you need too.
i literally walked out of my dads balls and he didn't even need to eject me. I beat you with these socks filled with cow ears so you could hear the last words i said to them before i killed them all.
