I think the best set from the entire trilogy is the freezing chamber.
Great stuff from an older thread:
Yeah, a bit on the long side but the differences in cinematography between the two films is pretty stark.
ROTJ had a very old look, while to this very day, Empire looks very modern and slick. For years I couldn't figure out why Empire just looked better than ROTJ, and why ROTJ looked inferior..until I had this long geeky conversation with a friend at a party a few years back. Yeah, the compositions in ROTJ were flat and often kinda confusing. I hate to say this but Lucas was on set almost everyday during the ROTJ shoot, and did some 2nd Unit. He has a love for mid-shots.
Meanwhile, Empire had very tight editing, and a variety of different dynamic shots and blocking. This article brought up the source lighting, something that I didn't noticed till now. Yes, it does make the film more atmospheric.
A couple pics I've never seen:
Nice! I hadnt seen a couple of those either
Those cinematography posts were fantastic.
Just finished anh and about to start esb for the first time. Star Wars was just something that never grabbed my attention before but once I sat down and gave it a fair watch I absolutely loved it. Can't wait to start esb.
