    My ranking of all saga movies including the stand alone movies are as follows:

    1. ESB
    2. ROTJ
    3. ANH
    4. ROTS
    5. R1
    6. TFA
    7. SOLO
    8. TPM
    9. TROS
    10. TLJ
    11. AOTC

    This could change upon my second viewing of TROS. Need more time to sit on that one, but for now my rankings stand as they are listed here.

    You and I are pretty much on the same page. I really need to go back and re watch AOTC to better my opinion of it. I am only surprised most at your ranking of TFA. I am curious to hear your thoughts on that?

    Yeah, I just really never got into it. I enjoyed the first half but the second half was boring to me. It just never really left an impression on me like the other films did.

    I can respect that. This is something I was discussing with my coworker today. I feel like TFA served it's purpose of introducing to us the new characters and laying the groundwork for the new adventures and stories to come, but after that is where LF dropped the ball. They had no sense of direction which unfortunately compromised TLJ and TROS and hindered their ability to create any cohesive ending to this saga.

    The films I view as "embodying the heart and soul of Star Wars":

    ESB (pretty much beyond reproach)
    ANH (not as clever or beautiful as ESB, but that's really my only criticism)
    ROTJ (kind of like a silly-ass kids movie and an absolute beast of SW excellence squished together)
    R1 (the first segment drags a little, but the last 45 minutes is absolute Star Wars perfection)

    The films I view as flawed but still maintaining a goodly amount of that essence of what makes Star Wars so dang fun:

    TROS (ridiculous, breaks many SW rules, but works with what TLJ left, and is a hoot)
    Solo (would be higher without Lady Proxima)
    TFA (I can't handle Starkiller Base, or this would be higher- the first portion is wonderful)

    The films I view as severely flawed, enough that it takes away from my appreciation of Star Wars (though worth noting: I still have space in my heart for them):

    ROTS (Grievous looks amazing but the cough takes me out of it; the effects and writing don't help- still, by far the best of this lower lot)
    TPM (Jar Jar and two-headed announcer poop on what is otherwise a pretty decent film, lame jokes and overuse of poorly-aged digital fx notwithstanding)
    AOTC (what is this- a video game? Thank the maker for Ewan McGregor)
    TLJ (I actually appreciate the Luke storyline. My issue has to do with execution of almost everything, well-done Yoda ghost aside)

    ----

    If I were to put The Mandalorian on this list, it would be in the top section. I think it's magical how well it embodies all that I love about Star Wars, with writing and acting quality that kind of ebbs and flows, just like in the OT if I'm being honest.

    ----

    Regarding special editions, I don't mind what's been done in ESB, but the changes in A New Hope fundamentally alter key characters, and the changes in ROTJ really dumb it down in my opinion (song changes, I'm looking at you)
