    New Poll to include The Last Jedi. Old Poll is locked.

    Remember: This is not a thread to bash any particular film or trilogy.

    The Last Jedi, because

    >Leia supermaning in space
    >The Real Grannies of the Resistance
    >Milking the beast
    >Chewbacca turns vegan because of feathery ewoks
    >Rey gets no training, is a better fighter than Kylo AND Luke
    >Puppet Yoda - who is somehow LESS alive looking than his OT puppet.
    >Every single scene with Finn and Rose
    >Outrageous claims that all rich people are inherently evil
    >yo mama jokes and other "humor"
    >Yoda saying that Rey needs no training and knows everything - which is weirdly reminiscent of what Palpatine said to Anakin
    >Luke trying to kill Kylo for thought crimes
    >Snoke dies with no backstory
    >Rey is a random
    >Luke projecting himself across space & time
    >Luke dying a hermit virgin
    >Rey using more advance Force skills with no training
    >Lens flares

    Mine is The Phantom Menace - basically for the reasons usually mentioned though I don't dislike the film.

    The Force Awakens, because the entire premise retroactively ruins ROTJ, and it sets up a universe that is boring and uninspired. It's like a horse stumbling out of the gate, it never really recovers and The Last Jedi suffered because of the hand it was dealt.

    Right now going with The Last Jedi. Entertaining and has great moments but ultimately suffers due to TFA’s framework. The movie as a whole takes suspension of disbelief to a level I never thought possible. Reason I ranked it lower than TFA is that it feels less like Star Wars and threw whatever promise TFA did have out the window.

    Still ROTS for reasons that I’ve been citing since 2005, mainly that Anakin was a gullible idiot, and Padme went from a strong rational leader to a simpering wuss (and no attempt to mansplain “what pregnancy is like” makes up for that).

    Some scenes in TLJ would cause it to rank at the bottom if they had comprised the whole movie though.

    Rey had a combination of both Anakin and Padme’s worst ROTS traits in all of her scenes with Kylo up until the end when she slammed the door of the Falcon on him. She was both gullible to Kylo’s version of the story and she allowed him to talk to her across space in the first place after what happened in TFA.

    The Force Awakens. Main characters are thinly drawn caricatures, no notable performances except maybe for Harrison Ford playing Harrison Ford, the story is too much of a rehash, and the world building and set design dull and uninspired.

    I don’t like using the phrase “least favourite”, so The Phantom Menace is the film that I love the least.

    TFA, TFA, TFA...for these reasons:

    and these:

    And also because too often, the tone of the humor felt too "contemporary"/Marvel-like (self-aware "winking" at the audience, etc.) and for me, that's not a "SW" feel.

    TPM still takes this dubious title for me. I hope a future movie never takes its place. Yippee!

    No RotJ. TESB x 2 :confused:

    So when we have the likes of Palpatine, Dooku, Tarkin, Ozzel, Yularen as well as Dodonna etc that's fine. No grandpa cracks. Feature some older women as senior officers & you stoop to granny remarks. Hopeless.

    The Phantom Menace. For one thing, I find its plot to be the least interesting; by the third act I’m just not all that invested in what’s going on. For another, Jar Jar ruins every scene he’s in.

    I can't vote yet because Episode 9: Hold My Beer hasn't been filmed, let alone released, yet.

    The Last Junk Jedi

    because it didn't rise above an average Clone Wars episode. :(

    (apologies to Clone Wars fans, I only remember very few that were average but a lot that were good if not great)

    Since I prefer to pretend the Disney films don't exist at all, I guess I am forced to chose my least favorite episode from the original six films and that would be A New Hope as of now.

    TLJ because it's the only one that didn't feel like a Star Wars movie to me.

    And because it hurts my head just thinking about it.

    The Phantom Menace by long shot for me.

    Kid Vader is annoying as hell.
    Jevenile humor
    Cartoony Design for a lot of the aliens
    A convoluted plot.... taxing of trade routes? Really?
    There's more, but that's enoug.

    Revenge of the Fanboys is my least favorite movie......Oh wait that is real life and not part of the Saga. :D.

    But seriously, I think that AOTC is my least favorite movie. But that is different than "worst made" film which goes to TPM.

    Quality wise I feel AOTC would rank as my least favorite as some of the writing and acting doesn't always work for me. In terms of watchability of each episode probably TFA as I just don't find myself that interested in watching it often, even less so then AOTC.

    AotC. I like the cool new Naboo ship at the beginning -- no, actually I LOVE that design -- then they blew it up, and after that there's just nothing that I want to watch. Bad writing, bad acting, messy plot that doesn't make much sense, and characters I don't care about.

    Right now it's TLJ as it's the only SW movie haven't wanted to see a 2nd time in the theater. This may change, as I'm cooling off right now because the film made me so made and I'm just waiting for Bluray next spring to re-evaluate.

    Attack of the Clones. Even though Jar Jar in TPM was just as embarrassing as the romance between Anakin and Padme in this one, the romance was far more integral to the main storyline. The consequence of being unconvinced by their romance is the lack of emotional pain in ROTS.
