George Lucas has always said that sound is ""half of the picture"" and this list proves it. Very accurate ranking here.

@HardRox,

Yep I agree with most of it but chewie should have been in there somewhere. However the greatest sound as far as Lucas is concerned is the ring of the worldwide cash registers for all the DVD & assorted merchandise sales over the decades...*envy envy*

All very good. Personally, the stereo effect of the Millennium Falcon leaving Hoth is my favorite.

axerate list even though #4 would be impossible considering how you would have to consentrate the explosions like that and you can`t here sound in a hard vacuum.

Yeah, i always thought that lightsabers were the best sounds in the movie series.By the way, have you noticed how the duels were more "strenght"-like, with less acrobatics in the 3 "old" movies, while in the "new" ones, they keep jumping and whirling and stuff?

I think they should have taken out the blasters and added Chewbacca. The blasters aren`t impressive enough for the list.

D`awww, no wookies.
Blaster and lightsabers do sound cool, it`s a very original sound that you usually won`t hear anywhere else.
I quite like the sound of pod racers, they should`ve been in.

Good list, but i agree, i wish chewie was in there...

haha, i love R2D2`s screaming...sounds hilarious! shame he wasn`t nearer the top though.
we all knew the lightsaber would be one of the more popular sounds.

the lightsaber buzz was made from like a staticy tv or something and the lasers were made from hitting one of those high tension cables that keep telephone poles down with a hammer

It`s a downright shame that Chewie wasn`t on there and Pogo the Lessor and Wat Tambor were. What were they thinking? The list also needed the Jawas, I love their "hm kiki" sound they make.

I was expecting to see the Death Star cannon in there...but meh, Star Wars has alot of sound effects in it, how can you expect to represent them all in a list of 10 items?

Nice to see the sound tech guys actually get some recognition outside of the ending credits and the parts of award shows that no one watches.

GeMiNi0587 FTW!!! Mel Brooks is a genius.

Also, when Episode II came out, one of the tuba players at my highschool figured out the pitch of the seismic charges and randomly played it after he snook up on people.

The list is all wrong. The most recognizable sound is of course Darth Vader so he is number 1. Two is R2D2. 3. Blasters 4. Lightsabers. As for the rest, who cares?

Whats interesting is a lot of these sounds are sampled from real things and places but manipulated in a synth called a synclavier to give them a unique quality. Its because the sounds are from real sources that we never second guess the sound with the visual.

I`m pretty sure the whole George Lucas quote is:

"Half of the picture is sound, the other half is CGI, lots and lots of CGI!"

May we pray to god that they never invent cgi sounds.

Cool list, but I would have moved the Tie fighters, and R2 up the list. I also would have added the X-Wing, and Tie fighter`s lasers, and the speeder bikes instead of Pogo the Lesser, and Wat Tambor.

I have to agree on the lightsabers being the coolest sound. Thought the tie fighters should be third behind Darth Vader.I feel that the imperial walkers should be on there instead of the seismic charges.

Hey, I imitated lightsabers when I was little and swinging sticks around in the back yard. That, and Darth Vader was the earliest crush I had on a movie character. ^^;
I still seem to have a thing for villains though.
