    1) Revenge of The Sith
    2) The Empire Strikes Back
    3) A New Hope
    4) Return of The Jedi
    5) Attack of The Clones
    6) The Phantom Menace

    Anyway, that is only how much I like them. I liked the story more on PT but the directing and dialogues were well below the average. If I was a movie critic (when directing, originality and dialogues quality matter more than the story itself) then I would have gone with:

    1) A New Hope
    =) The Empire Strikes Back
    3) Return of The Jedi
    =) Revenge of The Sith
    ......
    5) Attack of The Clones
    ......
    ......
    6) The Phantom Menace

    My imdb rating is:

    The Phantom Menace: 8
    Attack of The Clones: 8
    Revenge of The Sith: 10
    A New Hope: 10
    The Empire Strikes Back: 10
    Return of The Jedi: 9

    The ratings of the PT is a little overrated but SW is my favorite Saga.

    What makes you think that a "film critic" automatically gives dialogue more importance than the story?
    That would surprise me since stories are a part of films for much longer than dialogue (silent films).
    Personally, I don't even see that much artistic value of dialogue in films. It has enermous value in literature...but film, no, not for me.
    Who the hell wants to hear actors talk? - H.M. Warner, 1927

    My ranking would be:
    1.) Revenge Of The Sith
    2.) Attack Of The Clones
    3.) The Empire Strikes Back
    4.) The Phantom Menace
    5.) A New Hope
    6.) Return Of The Jedi

    From best to worst

    ESB: Simply a perfect film, from charachters, story, visuals, music dialogue, actor improvisation and of course the greatest reveal/twist in cinema history.

    ANH: Brilliant adventure film, Villans,Rogues and space battles it has it all. Oh yeah HAN SHOT FIRST!

    RTJ: The weakest of the OT but still good. Luke,Vader,Emperor scenes are what make this film while Jabba was a great charachter and the space battle looks great to this day. Saddly Ewoks,2nd Death Star and Leia being Lukes sister were not needed though, It was also clear Harrison Ford had had enough and should have been killed off as he requested.

    RotS Best of the prequels but still to much green screen and suffers from poor editing and lines not making sense with other lines. "Only Sith deal in Absolutes" "Chancellor Palpatine is evil"!
    Ewan Mcgregor and Ian Mcdairmid as Ob-wan and Palpatine save it from being as bad as the last two though and cover for Hayden and Portman. Still mostly remembered for NNNOOOOOOOO though its not a complete wash out and mainly suffers from following on the last two films.

    TPM Why oh why did Lucas not use the original Begining Script and title. Anakin should not have been a 9yr old nor should he have been Jake LLoyd and Obi-wan should have found him. Still a great Lightsaber Duel and brilliant score.

    AotC Worst Stawars film of the lot Felt like watching a (dated) video game.Terrible script which was clearly rushed out, so reduced to ripping off ESB with Anakin mainly whining about how its Obi-wans fault was also poor. Awful casting choices for Hayden and Portmanand the Love story urghh , well it was like sand, course and rough and gets everywhere ;)

    1. The Empire Strikes Back
    2. Revenge of the Sith
    3. A New Hope
    4. The Phantom Meance
    5. Return of the Jedi
    6. Attack of the Clones

    This is my current order and it is usually like this just III and V switch on occasion. All 6 are amazing films though so ranking them is difficult and will be more difficult after VII, VIII, and IX.

    which brings up a good point. where do y'all think the sequel trilogy will fit in with all of this?

    im predicting that the "general consensus" will be originals > sequel > prequels

    i bet im probably going to like them like this prequels > originals > sequels

    Oh gosh...I knew it would come to this one day. ;)
    Let me make it clear, first off, that I love each of the films, and have no hatred or dislike towards any of them.

    Best to...less-best
    TPM
    ROTJ
    ESB
    ANH
    AOTC
    ROTS

    TPM and ROTJ are tied for me; in situations like this, the quantity of Neimoidians is the deciding factor. I rank ROTS last simply because I don't watch it. It's not because of the massacre on Mustafar (not entirely, at least), but rather because of what it represents for me, on a personal level. I think it's a brilliant film, but the circumstances surrounding my seeing it are off-putting, to say the least. I'd like to come back to it one day, after it's "cooled down."

    As for ranking them from best-worst as films, rather than as favourites, the order for me is:

    ESB
    ANH
    ROTJ
    TPM
    ROTS
    AOTC
