    I’m a big Star Wars fan (my name, duh) but I actually liked the prequels. Maybe because I read the books before watching the movies. The books for the prequels, especially ROTS, are better than the books for the classic trilogy. Of course though, the acting in the classic trilogy is way better than Anakin and Padme’s “romance”.

    Here’s how I would rank the movies:

    1. Revenge of the Sith (Sorry :P)
    2. A New Hope (classic and a cool story, what’s not to like?)
    3. Rogue One (this was absolutely fabulous!)
    4. Return of the Jedi (I actually like this more than most fans)
    5. The Force Awakens (this was very enjoyable to watch, but the storyline is cr@p. Rogue One showed that new Star Wars movies don’t have to copy old plots to be good movies.)
    6. Attack of the Clones (the Obi-wan and Jango chase was pretty enjoyable)
    7. Empire Strikes Back (sorry, but I’m not a big fan of it)
    8. The Phantom Menace (meesa hates this!)
    9. The Star Wars Holiday Special (watched the whole thing. Unwatchable.)

  2. I agree completely with this list, but if I had to put Rogue One in somewhere, I’d actually probably put it on number one. I found the more I think about that movie, the more I realise I absolutely love it (to the point I bought a bunch of Lego to have all the minifigures of the main characters). Rogue One couldn’t exist without the original trilogy of course, and it has much better visuals, maybe that influences my opinion more than it should.

      Rogue One is definitely a superior entry to the Star Wars movies! I wouldn’t put it as high as you since I didn’t get the same connection with the characters as previous Star Wars films, but it’s still great!

    I agree with the ranking. Where would you rank Rogue One?

    • MovieBabble says:

      I think I would put it behind The Force Awakens or Return of the Jedi. I gave the movie an A- but I haven’t really given much thought to whether I like Rogue One or Jedi more

    You forgot the Clone Wars movie and the Christmas special so your list is incomplete

    My favorite all time Star Wars movie is Rerurn of The Jedi. I saw it multiple time in the theater when it came out. Great post.

  6. I think I would mostly have to agree with your rankings. They are balanced and thoughtful.

    I am a huge Star Wars fan. I actually am one of the few people that liked the prequel trilogy (except for the first movie, that one was really pretty bad). The fun thing about movies is that everyone experiences them differently. I have always found it very difficult to rank the Star Wars movies. Honestly except maybe for Episode 1, I like them all. Each one has strong points, and low points. This was a great post though 😀 I am really looking forward to Rogue One. I’ll be seeing it the coming monday, so am very excited to see hoe that one will turn out 😀
