    -A New Hope has to be first, even if you don't think it was the best, because it started it.
    --1,2,and 3 are more like 1a, 1b, and 1c
    ---Rogue is a clear 4 for me.
    ----Revenge is definitely 5, it brings everything together - the near destruction of the Jedi Order, the transformation of the Republic to the Empire, and finally shows Anakin turn (aside from the "high-ground" comment the light saber fight with Obi-Wan is epic).

    *I'm not including the Clone Wars film (which paled in comparison to the actual clone wars series - which they've recently announced they are reviving) or the Ewok films; which were brutal.

    I think a lot of this will depend on which year you were born.
    I'll just keep to my ranking scheme and put the latest one as #11.

    Just like 1,2,and 3 are more like 1a,1b,and 1c for me the last 3 are similar - 9a,9b, and 9c.

    Re: Star Wars Rankings

    Here's mine:

    1. Empire - When the good guys lost, everyone was shook.
    2. Rogue One - Kind of your classic 60s war movie, where all the good guys die.
    3. Skywalker - Yup. Thought it embraced and then ran with the movie serial roots of the original.
    4. Last Jedi - I'm surprised I have it this high, but I read an argument for it then watched it again and it won me over.
    5. Star Wars - Screw that ANH designation. It's Star Wars. BTW, doesn't really hold up in terms of acting and dialog, but it's still iconic.
    6. Force Awakens - Perfectly solid popcorn movie.
    7. Solo - I don't get having strong feelings about this movie. It's not on the garbage scow with the next four.
    8. Return of the Jedi - So horrible. Probably the most disappointed I'll ever be walking out of a movie. An evil empire that's conquered a galaxy is defeated by teddy bears? Completely undercuts everything Empire achieved.
    9. Phantom Menace - The kid can't act. The whole thing is a mess. Little did I know it would all get worse and I'd actually come to miss Jar Jar Binks.
    10. Clones - Did you know Darth Vader was a whiny teenager? One of the worst movies ever made (especially given its budget).
    11. Sith - My argument for why the latest trilogy deserves credit is it that it resurrected the franchise after the prequels dropped this load. At least I had the good sense to stay away until I could watch it for free. Worst thing about it is that everybody didn't die. They all deserved to.

    Re: Star Wars Rankings

    Oddly enough I rewatched Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised. I had not watched Menace in quite some time and enjoyed it more than I was expecting to. That being said I hate how these look like animated films for the most part. Rogue 1 and one just look so much better.

    There was a solid Star Wars story to be told with the prequels. However, the scripts were nowhere near finished products and yet Lucas went with them. That, young Anakin, teenage Anakin, and Jar Jar basically ruined the films for me. Get some better actors and ideas, and the story would have solidified.
