JediXMan Ranks the Star Wars Films

So I've been giving this some thought, and I think it's time that I actually rank them. This also reminded me that I never actually finished reviewing all of the Star Wars movies, and I think I'd like to get back to that. I'll link my reviews in lieu of an explanation for each movie, and provide a brief summary if I haven't reviewed the movie.

Great list! While I do almost fully agree, I have to say, you come off as very harsh against Rogue One. While I understand what you are saying, I thought the flow of the movie and the feelings I got from it made it excellent. While it wasn't a movie I asked for, it's a movie I'm incredibly pleased to have come out.

I just got back from seeing The Last Jedi a second time. It gets better when you go back and see it again.

Cool list. (Except that I haven't seen Last Jedi, that's pretty much my list except I wouldn't have RotJ on top.

Sure, but it solely exists as fan service. It's a story that did not need telling; there wasn't some mystery. The people of Rogue One didn't go on to do anything - they just died. And, for the most part, they came from nothing.

It's certainly enjoyable, but I just can't help but see it as hallow.

I am surprised that you put The Empire Strikes Back in second position instead of in first position.

I acknowledge Empire is a better film. I can't stand the Tatooine portions of VI. But I like VI more; just can't explain it.

Quite different from my preferences. Different tastes, I suppose.

Glad to see ROTS high in the list. An underrated movie. Anakin was its only issue.

YOU PUT A PREQUEL MOVIE ABOVE A NEW HOPE?!
