The effect of ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ can still be felt after 40 years

Following the cinematic impact of “Star Wars” in 1977, every movie studio everywhere was scrambling for space-based screenplays; suddenly sci-fi was back in vogue, for a few years at least. And as a result, the 80s began with a flurry of new movies, some good and some very, very bad. But among the hits were the enjoyable “Battle Beyond the Stars,” the epic “Flash Gordon” and the eerie “Saturn 3.” 

The year 1980 was also a vintage year for sequels, with “Superman II,” “Mad Max II” and of course, “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.” It’s hard to believe that arguably the best “Star Wars” movie made so far was released 40 years ago and the effect it has on pop culture can still be measured.
