    ESB
    TLJ
    SW
    ROTJ

    R1

    TFA

    AOTC Personal favorite prequel

    ROS
    SOLO
    ROTS Slightly on the rise.

    Top 3:

    1: A New Hope
    2: Revenge of the Sith
    3: Return of the Jedi

    I love return of the jedi because it helps wrap up the OT and tbh most of Star Wars. It is a well written ending. Revenge of the Sith, in my opinion, is a beautiful film. Great planets, amazing quotes, and a lot of build up which helped transitioned into the Empire and the Rebellion and such. I love ANH, it is such an amazing film to me. Lucas’s debut for Star Wars was amazing. The music, the acting, the plot, it all was put together to start an amazing universe. I also love Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi. And what about threepio constantly roasting R2. LOL!

    Hey @Lukestarbucker great to see another ROTS fan....I too love that movie. The spacecraft geek in me loves the opening sequence, which is one of the finest space battles in the whole saga IMO.

    I think ROTS nudged ROTJ out of the top three for a while thanks to being Ewokless (and, latterly, Jedi Rocks-less). But now there's been three more episodes for people to cogitate and four years (almost seven in TFA's case!) is probably enough time to let folk see that The Last Jedi is a superior film to ROTS in spite of the advantages that ROTS might have had going for it. Any way it makes sense for Episodes VII and VIII to start taking votes away from the prequel films but not take them away from ROTJ, or any of the OT films.

    Well said. Most likely because it contains things that mirror people's own lives.

    For me it's TLJ/TROS/TPM

    Nothing I love better than political intrigue and the evolution of the human spirit/character. :)

    Don Vito approves of this kind of movie viewing experience.

    Pretty much.

    There's two ways things go:
    1. I'm looking at a hero whom I can relate to, and because I can relate to them, I can understand them, so I'm invested.
    2. I'm looking at a hero whom I can look up to, but can't relate to, and because I admire their impossible qualities that I can't achieve, I'm invested.
    That is:
    1. Cheaper by the Dozen
    2. Superman
    The world we're in now is a post-90's world.
    A world that crams item (2) through the throat of item (1), which thereby converts (2) into (1), ditches the unattainable idol for the flawed hero at every chance they can get, and translates "idol" into "someone I can look up to because they're already like me".

    My only real beef with that is that this redefinition of "idol" doesn't redefine it; it removes it. It's not an idol if you can touch it.

    Cheers,
    Jayson
