Phil’s Top 5… Star Wars Characters

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out:  Star Wars Characters


Close but no cigar: Luke Skywalker, R2D2, Poe Dameron, Jabba The Hut, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ray


5 – Lando Calrissian
He lost a Falcon on a bet.  He runs cloud city. And he kinda betrayed our heroes. That SMALL point aside, Lando is Lando and proves in this universe there’s very few cases of people being one thing or another. 


4 – Princess Leia
She’s sassy, classy and handy with a blaster.  She’s also royalty, a great leader and one of the strongest female characters in sci-fi. 


3 – Darth Vader
The baddest dude in the galaxy, top notch pilot, leader of the Emperors forces and Luke’s dad.  


2 – Yoda
He talks odd, he’s small and he doesn’t do a great deal BUT Yoda is totally bad ass even before Attack Of The Clones tried to ruin him with stupid CGI. 


1 – Han Solo 
The uber rogue, shoots first EVERYTIME and answers a princess telling him that she loves him by saying “I know”.  One of the coolest film characters ever.
