I hit 'play' expecting something mocking, but that was really pretty effective. It's interesting -- last time I watched ANH, I could almost see Obi Wan remembering these events, but of course, Alec Guinness had zero idea what he'd be "remembering". Great acting, that.
If you haven't, you should watch them from Episode I through Episode VI. It puts a new perspective on some of the scenes from the Original Trilogy (such as that one) and is kind of a fun experiment. I don't think I'd show them to someone who hadn't seen them before in that order (you lose two great revelations in Empire Strikes Back that way), but they definitely work that way.
