ESB with ROTS a very close second. being born in 1979 vader has always been lukes father to me so i know had i seen ESB at 25 years old that would have been more profound than anakins fall.
Voted for Ep I. It's not the best by far, but it's my favorite because it's the BEGINNING of it all, folks! More to come!
Empire Strikes Back
There's nothing like the original. A New Hope.
Revenge of the Sith
Attack of the Clones
ESB, though RotS is my second favorite.
Without question, it's ROTS! To steal an expression from Matthew Stover, it's definitely the "shatterpoint" of the entire SW Saga!
Before ROTS, I ranked AOTC as my favorite, because I always felt that it was a highly underrated and undervalued masterpiece, and I also felt a little bit protective toward the prequels. (Why so protective, you ask? I think we all know the answer to that one! ) But realistically speaking, I feel that ESB is just a little bit better than AOTC in many departments, so with ROTS at the head of the pack I no longer feel obligated to champion AOTC at ESB's expense!
After ROTS, ESB and AOTC, I would then put (in order) ANH, ROTJ and TPM. (And just because I put TPM last on the list doesn't mean I don't appreciate it!)
But AotC will always be my sentimental favorite. Why? I couldn't explain that to any of you in a lifetime.
It is absolutely the saddest and most 'hopeless' episode... and sometimes that kinda makes it good.
ESB is still the best in my opinion but ROTS ranks up there an extremely close second.
Revenge of the Sith.
Revenge of the Sith.!! ;D
but it shares the first place with TESB and AotC
ROTS, but ROTJ and AOTC are close seconds.
My favourite is ANH, but ESB is a really close second and has other strenghts.
ROTS the best of the best
RotS was good but very sad so I say AotC.
