Watching Palpatine and those Star Destroyer precursors while the Imperial March played gave me chills. Bail Organa with head downcast was also powerful. The wedding wasn't so awesome, though i liked the music, but the deployment was enough to get my vote.
Same reasons for me.
My order would probably be:
The music combined with what is on screen is what makes the AOTC and SE ROTJ ones my favourites. I also love Augie's Great Municipal Band in TPM, evem though the scene isnt the most powerful.
ANH. Although, Chewie was robbed!
ANH. It's just classic. Plus best Audio ending with Chewie's roar.
ROJ's ending. We see all the suffering from Yoda, Obi-Wan and Anakin is finally worth it. I'm a sucker for happy endings!
I gotta be the only person who loved the ESB ending. It just leaves you wanting more. Is Vader Luke's father? What happened to Han Solo? Who is the "other" that Yoda was talking about? Will C-3PO ever come out of the closet?
AOTC was also a very cool ending. Palatine watching the Clone Army...it's just a hint of what's to come in Episode 3.
ANH was ok, but why didn't Chewie get a medal?!?!?!? He should have ripped Leia's arm out of her socket.
ROTJ's ending was good, but no matter how I try to avoid it, I see Lando doing that pathetic dance that doesn't go to the music being played. Ugh.
Phantom Menace ending reminds me of ANH. Cool music, but doesn't have an impact the way the other's did.
I like ROTJ's ending the most... why? Closure I suppose.
The Clonetroopers marching in hordes onto the pre Star Destroyers. It's just so breath taking. The wedding I could've done with out, but it helped out a little bit with me and the person I went with, err, I've said too much.
Return of the Jedi, because everything gets wrapped up and everyone's happy.
I'm another ESB person. I love dark endings, the best endings are when the bad guys win.
Wow, neck and neck between AOTC and ROTJ. Surely someone must like TPM most!
I've always liked the end of Return of the Jedi the best. The end of ANH is a close second.
The end of Attack of the Clones was my favorite. The size and scope of the clone army loading onto the ships(which appear to be forerunners to Star Destroyers) is just a great visual scene. And when it is coupled with the Imperial March theme, I think it becomes one of the most poignant scens in the entire saga.
It's a close call between ESB and ROTJ, but ROTJ wins by a small margin for me.
AOTC one. Maybe just for Palpy, but still...
ANH. The music is perfect and it has a happy end (from a certain point of view ). And yes, it's a pity Chewie didn't get a medal
(1) ROTJ (SE)
I love all of the endings, but as for my favorite, it's a tough call between AOTC and ROTJ. Seeing Anakin in spirit form alongside Yoda and Obi-Wan was definitely most triumphant, but the clone army in AOTC was even more magnificent. Also, I liked the wedding scene, because a) it's a beautiful shot and b) we get to see Ani's sweet robo-hand. So, I voted AOTC.
After much internal debate, I had to choose TPM's. I just love hpw everyone's celebrating and cheering victory, when in truth, all they've done is begun the downfall of the galaxy. The entire battle was simply a way for Palptine to get elected Chancellor. Add in that Augie's Great Municipal Band is the Emperor's theme just with children singing it? I love it.
RotJ, before they changed it and put in that crappy music
AOTC by far.
Clones + Imperial March = My vote!
