    RO still ranks highly for me, although its going to take a lot for the OT to be knocked from the top 3 spots, with repeated viewings over 34-37 years the OT is engrained on me. But RO sits just outside this top 3 easily, and I've enjoyed revisiting it many times over the last year since its release. This year has flown by too!

    To date the only SW films I have in my home library are the OT and R1. I might consider buying the full ST when it comes out in a bundle together.

    I'm curious as to what some people have against ROTJ that they'd rank it actually below some of the ST movies. I assume we're all basing it on the pre-Special Edition versions of the OT.

    I just enjoy the three recent movies more so than ROTJ. Simple. RO is fabulous to me. It could have been a little darker, but it was still outstanding. If Solo is half as good Ill be very happy.

    Jedi is great, the Ewoks are a little off putting.

    LOL I'm not sure how much more darker RO could've been, outside of actually seeing all of the protagonists being vaporized up close and personal.

    I know you have to put the OT first. It's immoral not to.
    But, I really love Rogue One. Quite alot.
    If I could look at it all without Nostalgia Coloured Glasses, it might be my favourite.
    But Empire makes me so happy....

    R1 is one of my favorite SW films, and it led to my undying love for Felicity Jones, a Jennifer Lawrence-level crush.

    I felt that it seriously undermined the sense that Star Wars is a battle of good versus evil, and that's always been one of the big draws of Star Wars for me.

    I loved Donnie Yen's character, but there was nothing else I could really latch onto. It's the only Star Wars movie I don't like.

    I can only really rank them in tiers--

    TIER 1 (in only the roughest of orders): ESB, ANH, TLJ, TFA, all of which have the indescribable "SW Feel" more than the rest.
    TIER 2: R1 and ROTJ which I like a lot but suffer from tonal inconsistencies that take me out just a little.
    TIER 3 (in absolutely this order, and I do like them all): TPM, ROTS, AOTC. Yes, TPM an easy first place among the prequels, and I always have to add that the Obi-Wan plot in AOTC is one of my favorite individual storylines in all of Star Wars.
    To be honest I sentimentally have the TCW feature in Tier 2 for sentimental reasons -- it was my first SW experience with my kids, who have become big fans.

    I rewatched this movie a couple weeks ago and was reminded how much I enjoyed it. My current ranking has it at 5th; after ROTJ, ESB, ANH, ROTS.

    While Rogue One is definitely a better film than The Force Awakens, they keep switching in ranking because I love the falcon and John Williams music in TFA.

    1. TESB
    2. ROTJ
    3. RO
    = TFA
    5. ANH


    6. TLJ
    7. TPM

    I originally had it at third but truth be told it's probably now number 2 if not equal with my favourite ROTJ!

    Again for me the exact ranking really doesn't matter so much as I think theres a big divide in Starwars, the OT and RO for me are superb films working at a significant higher level to the PT or the ST, both of which are badly flawed if not without their merits.

    I'm still curious as to why a minority of people (and yes they are the minority, judging by the poll) really didn't like the movie. What was it about the movie that made it so cringe-worthy that you ranked it below even the PT movies?

    Rogue One is my least favorite Star Wars film, but by no means do I hate it. It's often quite good, and the third act is a tremendous.

    My primary issues:
    - Full investment in Jyn (and the rest of the Rogue One team), and issues with some of her motivation
    - Krennic is a lackluster villain, always upstaged by Tarkin
    - Chirrut and Baze pay lip service to the Force, no insight
    - Erratically paced first act
    - Glacially paced Eadu
