Mod edit: Point made.
That's right - and you've made your point.
Might want to retire it, it's getting annoying.
1) Revenge Of The Sith
2) A New Hope
3) The Phantom Menace
4) The Empire Strikes Back
5) Attack Of The Clones
6) Return Of The Jedi
1. The Empire Strikes Back
2. A New Hope
3/4 Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith tied
5. Attack of the Clones
6. The Phantom Menace
7. The Clone Wars (film)
Off the top of my head, I'd have to say:
But, it can really depend on my mood which is my favorite, if I feel like epic battles, III is my favorite, but in general, 6 is better for me. I am slightly biased because I own all the movies but 6, so I don't see it as much, so it seems better
Amazingly, I have reviewed this whole thread and have not found a list the same as mine!
1. ANH - Classic in so many ways. Word's just can't describe this. It's pure magic.
2. TESB - A fantastic film as good as the first really, but the story is not quite as good as the first.
3. ROTS - This is my fanboy dreams coming true. Lots of Saber duels and the birth of Vader!
4. ROTJ - The Ewoks are really the only reason this is down the list.
5. AOTC - Awful love scenes, but fantastic action.
6. TPM - Definitely the worst but it's still under-rated as a film. There are many fantastic things about it, like Maul and the Podrace.
The interesting thing I've noticed is that the OT is almost always the favorite except for JEDI, and the PT is almost always the worst except for SITH. I think the general consensus seems to be that ROTS is by far the best of the PT, and JEDI is the worst of the OT, which I actually find kind of nice to see that one of the PT films surpasses one of the OT films most of the time.
Well, there is 720 ways to rearrange the movies, and we're only at post #382
I like them all pretty equally, so my rankings can sometimes fluctuate a bit. But generally I've ranked them as:
ESB>ANH>RotJ>RotS>>>>AotC>>>>>>>>>>>TPM....I grew up on the OT in the early 90s and was an adult when the PT came out...so...yeah.

Well, I know I made a previous post, but I recently got the Blu-Ray set and watched them all again in glorious HD and my opinion has changed slightly. Are we allowed to change our list? lol
Watching Episode III in HD again brought me back to the theaters in 2005, and I realized how truly great that film is. Return of the Jedi is still great in my eyes, don't get me wrong, but Revenge of the Sith is a cinematic masterpiece.
I guess if you want your list to be included in the voting count, you should also repost your previous ranking. That way, the guy who is doing the counting, can subtract points from your previous score and add your new ranking score
And just to add on your post, I completely agree with your final statement
@Jarren_Lee-Saber, take note of this post next time you do a tally: http://boards.theforce.net/threads/...least-favorite.50007908/page-16#post-51107980
ANH: Timeless story that never fails to put me in a good mood.
ROTJ: Jabba's Palace/battle over Carkoon, and the final duel put this as a close second for me.
ESB: Cinematically the best film of the saga IM(and others)O, just not my personal favorite of the OT.
TPM: I think it's pure nostalgia putting it here. I was 12 when I first saw it and although it has many problems on many levels, I can't help but remember how fun that time was, while watching.
ROTS: I have a lot of issues with some of the dialogue, the way Anakin turned, and Padme's overall character portrayal in this film. On the other hand the Obi-Anakin duel was good as was Palpatine's Empire speech.
AOTC: I don't hate it, I do like parts (Geonosis Battle, Palpatine in general) but as a whole it just doesn't measure up to me.
Erm....if I knew where to find his original votes, that would be great.
I hope I'm not causing that much of a ruckuss.
1. ROTS : Anakin's turn and politics.
2. ROTJ: Anakin's redemption and Luke, Vader and Palps all confront each other.
3. TPM: Politics
4. ANH: No romance
5. ESB: Romance, which I hate
6. AOTC: Even more romance
1. ROTJ-After all was said and done the characters we came to know over the course of three films got their happy ending. The "riding off into the sunset" moment that the actors/characters deserved.
2. ESB-The magic continues with this, the second film in the OT. We meet Yoda, find out Darth Vader is Luke's father, and bear witness to Han undergoing the carbon-freezing process. Arguably Lucas' finest work.
3. ANH-The genesis of a global phenomenon.
4. TPM-Different sets, cast, story, etc. but feels strangely familiar. Recaptures the look and feel of the OT in all its' epic glory. They introduce us to characters like Darth Maul & Qui-Gon Jinn. They proceed to kill each of these characters.
5. AOTC-On the cusp of TOO MUCH CGI!
6. ROTS-TOO MUCH CGI! Opening space battle mirrors the best video game graphics out there, but isn't even close to presenting the same standard set by its' OT counterparts years prior.
1. ROTS-We witness what was thought to be the curtain call for the Star Wars franchise. Obi-Wan/Anakin duel is captivating, Hayden dons the Darth Vader getup for the very first time, and James Earl Jones returns as the voice of one of the greatest villains of all time.
2. AOTC-One heck of an action flick.
3. ESB-Knowing now, that Harrison Ford wanted his character killed in the build up to ROTJ slightly taints this otherwise richly entertaining experience. It's still a blast to watch, though.
4. ANH-Love, love, love this movie.
5. ROTJ-Stellar climax marred only by the possibility that the ST may kill off one/all of the original cast rendering the ending pointless.
6. TPM-Different sets, cast, story, etc. but feels strangely familiar when suddenly the differences from the OT become too readily apparent, and the masses revolt forming the foundation for an anti-prequel stance for years to come. This is the movie that began that journey.
I wouldn't even begin to venture a guess.
1)Empire Strikes Back
2)A New Hope
3)Attack of the Clones
4)Return of the Jedi
5)Revenge of the Sith
1. The Phantom Menace
2. Revenge of the Sith
3. The Empire Strikes Back
4. A New Hope
5. Attack of the Clones
6. Return of the Jedi
On December 19th, 2015:
3. Episode 7
We finally have a date for Episode 7!
take me with you next time you're going to the future.
This is always subject to change, but at the moment I'd say...
Episode II - Attack of the Clones
Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
Episode I - The Phantom Menace
Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
Episode IV - A New Hope
It is a rarity to see all three prequels in someobdy's top three, but nonetheless an interesting choice. My selection is as follows:
The Empire Strikes Back - love the eerie element of darkness and the Empire's determination to quell the rebellion. Although victory of Hoth cannot at all compare with the destruction of the Death Star, this film more or less evens the odds, setting up the grand finale perfectly.
A New Hope - the first Star Wars film I seen as a kid and which got me hooked to the franchise. In short, packed with adventure and thrilling battles.
Attack of the Clones - Makes my top three largely due to the introduction of Count Dooku and his newly inaugurated Confederacy designed to oppose the established balance of the Republic. The Arena standoff is a prime bonus.
Revenge of the Sith - Exciting to witness the rise of the empire and Palpatine's game of deception, along with all the politics, culminated by a grand standoff between the Jedi and Sith. The weakpoints of this film are the comedy which isn't really fitting especially considering the drastic change taking place in the universe. And the overconfidence of Anakin seems a bit cliche and overdramatized.
The Phantom Menace - Not bad. Given the plot and the fact that it serves as an intrdouction to Star Wars, this film can afford to be just not bad. The informality and homour seems appropriate and so this film brings a mix to the franchise. I also love the spooky cutscenes of Sidious and his orchestration of the main political events.
Return of the Jedi - actually a good film with less weaknesses than the two above, but since the plots of the other films appealed to be more, this sadly has to go as my number 6. Plus I like the build-up films like TESB when the two sides are in the midst of conflict as opposed to this culminatory film where good prevails (as it always does) over evil. The plot is in this sense predictable, whereas TESB and ROTS aroused more emotions within me as a viewer.
Are you THE Michael McKean?
