Rank the Star Wars Movies

Post by Master Magnus » December 16th, 2018, 3:37 am

I'm not really much a fan of ranking things, but one year on after The Last Jedi was released, I thought it's time to rank the movies. I will rank the movies in two lists: The first list only includes the Saga movies and the other also includes the "A Star Wars Story" movies. Here goes:

Saga movies
1. The Empire Strikes Back
2. Revenge of the Sith
3. A New Hope
4. Attack of the Clones
5. Return of the Jedi
6. The Force Awakens
7. The Phantom Menace
8. The Last Jedi


Including the "A Star Wars Story" movies
1. The Empire Strikes Back
2. Rogue One
3. Revenge of the Sith
4. A New Hope
5. Attack of the Clones
6. Return of the Jedi
7. The Force Awakens
8. The Phantom Menace
9. Solo
10. The Last Jedi

All Star Wars Movies (That I've seen as theatrical releases):

While only tv movie in the US, Caravan of Courage had a theatrical release in Australia. The other ewok film (Ewoks: Battle for Endor) did have a theatrical release in some counries but not US or Australia.
I consciously excluded those movies just because they weren't theatrically released in the US. Caravan of Courage was theatrically released here in Sweden, surprisingly heavily cut (nine cuts of "violent" scenes" amounting to four minutes), and was given a "7" rating (meaning that children below the age of seven required parental guidance). Battle for Endor was only released to VHS (but was given a "15" rating, meaning that children below the age of 15 couldn't watch the movie).

Excluding the Ewok movies, I'd place the The Clone Wars above The Last Jedi. I haven't watched the Battle for Endor in 30 years and I'm not sure I'd like it as much today as I liked it then. I never liked Caravan of Courage though,

Mags, I accept why you excluded them. For me, I wanted to ranked every film I seen at the cinema to show where I'd rated the new films. It is a long time since I've seen either ewok movie but my memories of them give me a better feeling than these sequels.

Rank the Star Wars movies? Why not?

1. The Empire Strikes Back.
2. A New Hope (A.K.A. Star Wars to those of us who were around prior to the name-change).
3. Revenge of the Sith.
4. The Phantom Menace - Return of the Jedi (Tie).
5. Attack of the Clones.
6. The Force Awakens (A.K.A. The Farce Awakens).
7. Rogue One. (This one would rank higher by two places if they cut it down to the final space battle and deleted all the scenes from that dealing with Cassian Andor and Jynn Erso.)
8. Solo: A Star Wars Story (It is debatable whether this one even belongs on the list: it has about as much to do with Star Wars as Peter Jackson's execrable "Lord of the Rings" films have to do with Tolkien's novel, The Lord of the Rings; Solo looks more like an episode of Firefly, thirty years on, with Mal Reynolds and Zoe masquerading as "Tobias Beckett" and "Val". It reminded me strongly of the Firefly episode "The Train Job"; I've wanted to do a careful comparison of the two, but I can't bring myself to watch the film again.)
9. The Last Jedi (A.K.A. The Last Straw, and The Last Moof-Milker, and [barrage of deleted expletives]).

Or, shorter form: Star Wars was good; Empire Strikes Back was better, and--it's all been downhill since then (and off the cliff since TFA).
