Remembering Irvin Kershner

22 posts in this topic

The director of The Empire Strikes Back, arguably the greatest Star Wars movie, has passed away today. Kershner took the series to a new high with a perfect mixture of emotion and art that hasn't been seen in any Star Wars film since. I look back and wonder how great the PT could have been had Kershner not turned down the offer to direct The Phantom Menace.

Thank you for one of the greatest films of all time! You will be missed!

Megabloks.

Thank, you, Irvin Kershner for the greatest film ever, even if the box office totals disagree with me. But where were you when Jar-Jar was conceived?!?!

Darn.

ESB was the best Star Wars movie (also the best movie in general), so thanks goes to him for his great work.

May the Force be with you, always...

Ingrid Pitt, Leslie Neilsen and now this! I just read a nice tribute here. IMO ESB is easily the best SW film, I haven't watched the rest half as much as I should because when I feel like watching Star Wars, I watch Empire. And that ending, gets me every-time. Sad news.

Agreed. Although I consider myself a neutral in PT/OT/CW, ESB was still the best of the movies, IMO. Everythings about it was so incredible. RIP, Irvin.

I never said CW is better. I maybe a CW fan, but I'm a general SW fan so I like all of 'em - OT/PT/CW (well, maybe not EU stuff). default_classic.gif

Rest in peace, Irvin Kershner. I respectfully disagree with comments about how it's a sad day for just OT fans- it's truly a sad day for Star Wars fans and fans of any of his other movies. His magnificent work helped shape blockbusters for years ahead. My condolences to his family.
