All of our picks are now available on DVD and letís see whatís swimming out there.
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - During the 30th Anniversary celebration, be careful because someone out there just might be looking for you. In Luke Skywalkerís (Mark Hamill) case, this is very true. After destroying the Empireís orbital Death Star satellite, Luke and the Rebel Forces are on the run from Darth Vader and the Empire. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is also on the run from Jabba the Hutt and his bounty hunters too. Vader gets a line on the group and corners them on the icy planet of Hoth and after nearly defeating them, Han and Luke get separated. Luke is urged by an old friend to seek out Yoda so he can teach him the ways of the Force to become a Jedi Knight. Learning this, Vader goes after Han, Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), and the rest of the crew to force Luke to come to him. After some time has passed, Vader captures Han and the others and Luke receives a message through the Force that his friends are in danger. Has Luke learned enough to take Vader on?
