I really don't have any dislike for any of the movies, but still I rank them as follows:

Empire Strikes Back
A New Hope
Attack of the Clones
Return of the Jedi
The Phantom Menace

I'll see where Revenge of the Sith falls into this list Thursday night... smile.gif

Did you just rank Attack of the Clones OVER Return of the Jedi?

Yup. I thought ROTJ sucked (relatively speaking, of course). Ewoks, weak-ass Stormtroopers, a second Death Star. I mean, c'mon George Lucas...you're more creative than that. He could have really found a better way to end the saga...it was a real let-down after The Empire Strikes Back.

ROTJ was a good film.

The Second Death Star thing starts out a little iffy, but you have to consider it this way;

The Empire has this giant weapon that will grant them conquest across the galaxy. The first one they built had a design flaw that caused its destruction after only one use. They aren't going to fix the design and then build a new one?

The Ewoks are more or less what Lucas originally envisioned for the Wookies. He wanted to get that original idea into the films.

And you have got to remember...there is quite a bit of film that is pre-Endor strike...Han Solo/Jabba The Hut/Boba Fett, Luke's Jedi Training

I thought it tied it up nicely. The only things that could be considered 'open ends' were things that were vaguely referred to and are/were addressed in the first three episodes.
"I've never seen a warlock do that without his magic."
"I once devoured a monk's soul. It tasted like chocolate."

There was a special on VHI on Star Wars, and even Harrison Ford said " and then to end this whole thing with a teddy bear picnic.."

I watched ROTJ for the first time in years the other night, and parts of it were really corny....The ewok battle in the forest with the storm troopers did it in for me blink.gif

Star wars is a glorified Star Trek. I think that they are both way over-hyped. I am so sick of hearing about star wars. Porn has better dialogue and music. Seriously, some dude waited in line for months for tickets........ That's not even funny or interesting, it is just plain sad.

When I think of Star Wars, I think of

Hey hater. f**k you!
This is a lovin thread not a hatin thread.
If they're overhyped as you say why do post in here where you'll be exposed to them even more? Why not just ignore it?
If you're sick of hearing about Star Wars, why post in a thread devoted to it?
I'll tell you why. You obviously posted your drivel just to stir s**t up.
So now you got it, BIATCH!!!
You're stupid, and your posting in here is illogical.
When I think of you, I think of a close-minded, antagonistic individual who has nothing better to do than make fun of other people.
It might be okay if your post was funny or orignal, but it's tired and overused.
It's lacking in both humor and uniqueness.
Have a large cup of STFU!

I wasn't trying to be funny or unique. There was no logic to my post. I am not close minded just cause I don't like Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. I am not antagonistic either. I am not trying to stir s**t up with anybody, especially in this thread for the simple reason that so far, up until your post, I am extremely friendly with everybody that posted in this topic. So, they know that I am not trying to stir s**t up. This name calling of "BIATCH" is in itself not funny, not original tired and overused. You also used another tired unoriginal and overused phrase and that is "STFU". See, name calling such as "BIATCH" can get you banned. Telling me the "STFU" cause "I" personally, was telling my friends that I don't like Star Wars Revenge of the sith is a bit childish on your part. I am not going to resort to the name calling or telling you to "STFU". Now, as far as the stupid comment, I think that you need to spell "BIATCH" right, as well as "orignal" before we start talking about someone's intelligence. Other than that, have a wonderful day.

Oops... Wrong thread

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

It looks like we basically all agree that The Phantom Menace ranks at number six. Even though I put it at six myself I still really like it and think it gets too much abuse.

I've got it in at 5... That's because I just did NOT like Attack of the Clones... I understand that he had to set up the love story, but when half the theater was falling asleep in the middle of the movie... It just dragged too much, IMHO.

Empire Strikes Back
Return Of The Jedi
A New Hope
Revenge Of The Sith
A Phantom Menace
Attack Of The Clones

The new ones still don't hold a candle to the old ones, too many flaws in the story and the enchantment just isnt there.
Moral victories are for losers.
