    The romance scenes never bothered me, honestly. Nor did Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman. There were a few awkward lines and deliveries, sure, but I definitely bought into their relationship. And a lot of the lines had some really great foreshadowing and subtext.

    Attack of the Clones
    The Phantom Menace

    ROTS through ANH are very, very close together. They're pretty much tied for first. AOTC and PM just aren't as good as the rest but I still love their role in the overall saga.

    1. Revenge of the Sith
    1. (tie) The Empire Strikes Back
    3. A New Hope
    4. Return of the Jedi

    (a pretty sizeable gap)

    5. The Phantom Menace
    6. Attack of the Clones

    I think the last 2 are only mediocre to slightly above average movies.

    Here's something interesting. I looked through the previous posts and not a single person had their lists in the exact order as the cumulative rankings which as this point still goes:

    Empire Strikes Back
    Revenge of the Sith
    A New Hope
    Return of the Jedi
    The Phantom Menace
    Attack of the Clones.

    2 people did have the 1st 4 films in that order but they had TPM and ATC tied.

    Strangely, my list almost perfectly matched the fillms listed according to their cummulative totals. I have TESB and ROTS tied at top, while the cumulative list has TESB ahead of ROTS, but then the order is the same.

    Interestingly, there seems to be 3 groups of 2 that are greatly distancing themselves from the other groups, while staying very close to its own member.

    Return of the Jedi

    This was a really hard decision because I pretty much like all of the films in the Saga. It's difficult to rank them in order. Filling the first two places was easy, but then it went down to the nuances. It was hard to put ROTJ in the last place, but the Jabba and Endor scenes with ewoks made all the difference. Apart from that, it includes some of the most emotional scenes in the saga.

    My order appears in post #129, the one above directly above this one.

    I noticed the same trend you did about their groupings, and ROTS is showing is some pretty strong evidence that GL did something right in the PT, since ROTS is in a strong second place. So, at least with big fans of the Saga, ROTS is recognized as a strong entry in the Saga.

    BTW, Jarren Lee, thanks for keeping a running tally of this. It's a much better way of getting a sense of how much people like the different films than a simple poll.

    I don't like to rank the trilogies together, simply because they were made at different times and used different types of effects. It's like comparing a black & white movie like King Kong from 1933 to Jurassic Park from 1993, both great movies, but it wouldn't be fair to say one is better then the other.

    Original Trilogy:
    1. Empire
    2. Star Wars
    3. Jedi

    Prequel Trilogy:
    1. Clones
    2. Sith
    3. Menace
