Discussion in 'Revenge of the Sith (Non-Spoilers)' started by Vaderbait, May 16, 2002.
I know these polls have been done before, but now that AOTC has been released, without spoilers, vote for your favorite film of the saga.
I'm voting for AOTC, after the initial shock of seeing it passed, and I began to pick it apart like so many do, the acting, the story, the pacing, the graphics, it was all excellent, and I'm not what you would call an extremist or one of those who claim all the films are flawless.
If ESB had those sonic charges from the Slave-1 like AOTC had, maybe. But since it don't, I'm voting for AOTC.
And Yoda helps too.
i vote aotc, holy cow that was a good movie. i mean if these boards would let me swear while describing how cool aotc was this post would be waaaaayyyyy longer!
Yes AotC I can't believe people are complaining. This film is superior to the originals in more ways than it is inferior.
I so here you Darth-Schwartz. After seeing it I was so stunned I just mutterd
jibberish for like two hours.
1 - ESB/RotJ (tie)
2 - AotC
3 - ANH
4 - Transformers: the Movie
5 - TPM
I picked ESB because I'm a hardcore Vaderite and I like the film that does the most exposition on him, for many reasons. That doesn't mean I don't think AotC was great, though.
So that WAS R2 in the Transformeers movie...
ESB. As good as AOTC was, ESB cannot be beaten.
I have to pick this way:
--both are such excellent star wars flicks, but so different in so many ways.
"Attack of the Clones" is my new favorite SW movie. Not just because it's the latest, but where TPM was the introduction of the SW saga, AOTC is where not only is there new thrills...but more connections to what we know/think we know about OT.
After going to Lake Como, seeing the Naboo retreat brings back good memories of the most peaceful/romantic days of my life. I'm now determined to go back someday, and walk around the villa where they filmed that part of the movie (it was closed to the public the day I was there)
The action was amazing, from the speeder chase, Jango vs Obi-Wan, the arena battle, and lightsaber duels. Samual Jackson may be "Shaft," but Yoda is "one bad mother...SHUT YOUR MOUTH" I'm just talkin' about YODA! And I love that after all that jumping and twirling, he picks up his lightsaber and starts limping again
1. Star Wars
5. Phantom Menace
ESB (yes really)
1. Clones. The perfect SW balance of drama and action, comedy and romance. What a treat.
2. Empire. For the slower pacing and the flushing out of Darth Vader's character.
3. A New Hope. This movie just has its own feel and theme that will in many ways never be outdone in this series. Plus, all of the quotable lines rule.
4. Jedi. It's all about Jabba's demise and the immortal Final Battle.
5.The Phantom Menace. I am not a hater. I like this movie on its own. But it doesn't have the drama and emotion of the OT.
Thank you GL, for Attack of the Clones.
Malthus, that is MOST PATHETIC ranking I've EVER seen!
Ranking Transformers in a Star Wars poll like that...pfftt....
1. Transformers the Movie
2. Empire Strikes Back
3. Attack of the Clones
4. A New Hope
5. Return of the Jedi
6. The Phantom Menace

4) AOTC -so far down because I'm still regretting being spoiled.
Loved 'em all!
Ignoring special effects/budget limitations and focusing on the story/plot etc:
The most fun to watch:
Combining the two rankings:
Needless to say, I was utterly, utterly blown away by AOTC.
My favorites in order:
