The Movie: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
What Is It?: The second Star Wars picture belongs on that short list of sequels that best their predecessors. After battling space yetis and dinosaur trucks, the old gang splits up to get hunted by super-cool bounty hunters with barely any screen time, train with a puppet master, and learn terrible things about their families. The cool blue aesthetic is as enchanting as the snowy, swampy, and cloudy environments.
Why Today?: Today is Father’s Day. I hope your dad is better than the one in this flick.
