The 50 greatest Star Wars scenes

Han shoots first

The Scene: The cause of much fan rage in the wake of the Special Edition re-releases, this scene is bigger than the Lucas-tinkering controversy its also just plain awesome. In Chalmuns Cantina on Tatooine, Han Solo and Greedo have an uneasy encounter. Greedo is planning to off Solo - but Han gets in there first.

The Awesome: Few scenes have caused so much controversy over the years. Also, Sorry about the mess is Hans sign-off to Wuher the bartender. Thats one cool cat.
