PT What did you rate the prequels on IMDb?

    Sorry if a similar thread has already been made, I couldn't find one. So yeah, what did you rate them and what's your opinion about the current ratings on IMDb?

    Personally I rated them all a 10/10 (yes, I love them that much) and really don't think the prequels are deserving of their ratings on IMDb. TPM should at least have a 7.5/10. AOTC the same and ROTS 8.5/10. AT LEAST.

    Current ratings:

    The Phantom Menace 6.5/10
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120915/

    Attack of the Clones 6.7/10
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0121765/

    Revenge of the Sith 7.7/10
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0121766/

    If you haven't voted, know this.. that IMDb uses a system that will only count votes for those who regularly uses the site and rates movies, to avoid cheating. Creating an account for the first time and giving the movie a rating won't change the rating at all.

    TPM: 7
    ATOC: 5
    ROTS: 9
    ANH: 8
    TESB: 9
    ROTJ: 8

    This is a little off, I think. For the Top 250, IMDb only counts the votes of regular voters, but for the raw IMDb score, it includes all voters. That's why, for instance, the Dark Knight Rises' imdb rating is an 8.6, but its rating on the Top 250 is only a 8.4 (still a very high score).

    So, if you want to boost the ratings of the PT, sign up at IMDb and vote, and if you want to lower its ratings, then waste some time and forget all about it... (I'm a little biased.)

    BTW, I definitely think ROTS' rating has been affected by the anti-PT snark. It was very well-received when it came out, and in a poll here, ROTS is running a close 2nd behind the TESB; then much lower down, ANH and ROTJ are close together in 3rd and 4th, and way down at the bottom are TPM and ATOC in that order.

    So, the majority of people here would put it ahead of ROTJ, but ROTJ has 8.4 score while ROTS has a 7.7 (which is still a pretty strong score).

    Even if its a thread repeat its good for us n00bs. :)

    For me I'd have to go:-

    TPM 7
    AOTC 5
    ROTS 8
    ANH 9
    ESB 9
    ROTJ 8

    AOTC is the only one I can't watch, it just holds no draw for me.

    I find it very tricky to rate SW films against other films because eventhough I may find things to grumble about, I get a huge amount of enjoyment out of them simply because I'm immersed in the SW universe.

    So.... as against movies generally I'll go 8,7,9

    As against the OT I'll go 6.5, 5, 8, with the OT 10, 9.5, 6

    I can rank the PT movies in order, but I can't 'rate' them simply because I am biased because I am such a big fan. There are tons of better movies then the PT movies, but I would prefer to watch the PT over those movies simply because of my fandom. Don't know if that makes sense?

    Ditto.

    Can't remember what I had for lunch yesterday, let alone the IMDB-score I gave TPM 15 years ago.
    :p

    TPM 7/10
    AOTC 8/10
    ROTS 9/10

    I feel the PT got progressively better and by the time of ROTS it was on par with the OT for me. 3-5 are my favorite of the saga, with 1,2, and 6 being nice bookends with faults.

    Its interesting to see the ratings for AOTC all over the place, definitely a hit or miss with many.

    It's a reference to a space fantasy movie from the seventies.

    eh, haven't ever voted on IMDB, not intersted in popularity contests and ratings, I like what I like. A one star or a ten won't change that

    but just to not spam the thread with a pedantic response HERE are my ratings:

    TPM:7/10
    AOTC 9/10
    ROTS 2/10

    Now that's a reversal. I think AOTC is typically the most polarizing one (I do love it still).
