ROTS will screw all that up I think.
Second favourite behind ESB. I love AOTC-I wish more people could see in it, what I see in it. A beautiful movie that gives us the last rays of hope and beauty, before the inevitable darkness begins to envelop us by the end of the picture. The ending is without the most tragic of all the Star Wars movies and the final scene will probably be viewed as the darkest of the series, when all 6 are lined up.
To sum, I love all the Star Wars films, but some of the newer films have left a lot to be desired. They leave me empty in a way the original films don't. However, I'm very much looking forward to Revenge of the Sith, and I really hope that on repeated viewings, my appreciation for the prequal films will increase.
That sums up my thoughts about them too.
Can't tell where ROTS will end up, but AOTC is definitely my least favorite of all the SW films. It was the first SW film where I left the theater very disappointed thinking to myself SW had hit its low point. The absolutely, terrible dialogue during the the veranda(first kiss) scene, coupled with the even more absolutely, terrible dialogue in the fireplace scene, adding to an already underdeveloped, presumptuous love story, was a painful experience for me.
Although, in the last couple of years, I have warmed up to the film. I just simply fast-forward through the love story and it's actually a very good movie. Kinda like the people who hated Jar Jar, editing him out. Hey, whatever works for you. Btw, I do like Jar Jar. Can't wait to see ROTS.
Changing my mind!
ROTJ- perfect, no flaws here!
ESB- Great film but we need to see the Cloud City window shots to be finished, added in for continuity sake, fix this and it will be in first place.
TPM- Great film, Yoda needs to be digital tho, the extended DVD shots to the podrace omitted.
ANH- All we need is to see the Anakin lightsaber to be the right color, and the severed hand in the cantina to be cauterized. But wait! The Rebel Alliance is all humans, and all white?!
AOTC- We will see what it all means after ROTS, but visually briliant, thw position for this movie might change after ROTS.
So I chose first.
heres how my list gose, ESB,AOTC,ROTJ,ANH,TPM
"Clones" is the worst by far, thanks mostly to the fact that it mostly looks like a cartoon with bored humans walking in front of it. The lack of chemistry between Hayden and Natalie doesn't help, either.
I've always said I love all 5 SW films...
But if I had to push for a ranking, I'd seriously have to consider AOTC to be up there, either #2 or #3 depending on my mood.
