    As the poll says.

    If you have seen The Force Awakens, how do you rank it among the rest of the films of the saga? Does it surpass any of the George Lucas films? Which ones?

    Please remember not to post untagged spoilers for TFA prior to January 1, 2016.

    TFA

    I saw the movie with my family today. I didn't have high hopes, but I disliked it more than I thought I would. It's not star wars to me.

    Just as predicted, Ep 7 ranks as number 7 as far as I am concerned. Only one thing surprised me in the entire movie(in a pleasant way). Most things either ranged from OK to mediocre for me. My friends all loved it though(yay for them).

    Talking about TFA (open)
    Really hard to do this with seven films now. I really enjoyed TFA and I think a 4th place is deserved, but not at the expense of ANH from which it borrows so so much. I think that as a cinematic experience TFA works well purely because it's a more modernized version of ANH in a lot of ways. I have infinitely more respect for ANH, but I just rewatched the Saga and I'd be guilty if I said that I didn't enjoy TFA more than ANH. It could be because of the novelty effect that'll wore off in time, but right now my ranking is as follows.

    1. RotS
    2. AotC
    3. TESB
    4. TFA
    5. TPM
    6. ANH
    7. RotJ

    But the gap between 1st and 7th is so so small. I'm just happy that there's now a 7th film I can enjoy.

    As with the other thread, I will be tracking the rankings of this thread in this Google Spreadsheet and I'll post the intermediate results every now and then.

    I really liked TFA. The performances were great as was the direction. Some holes in the story prevent it from rising completely to the top.

    Shame that only 18 people posted their rankings in this (dedicated) thread. :( Everyone is posting their ranking in the TFA forums. I hope this place gets more crowded once more people see the new movie.

    I've now accumulated the rankings of 123 JCF members and this is the result based on the standard formula of 7 points for 1st place and down do 1 point for 7th place:

    The six George Lucas movies shuffle in ranking every couple of months. TFA will remain the seventh, at least until a new movie comes out.
