    1. A New Hope (10/10)
    2. The Empire Strikes Back (10/10)
    3. Return Of The Jedi (10/10)
    4. Solo (9/10) - Perked me up about the series somewhat. Definitely the best of the Disney attempts at Star Wars. Fun, intriguing, engaging, involving characters I'm able to give a **** about.
    5. The Force Awakens - (8.5/10) A movie with potential squandered by the mundanity of its sequel.
    6. Rogue One - (8/10) Rogue One isn't a life changing movie, nor is it a game changing star wars movie. It really isn't anything but a fun little romp. And it connects well with Star Wars imagery so I don't fault it for that. Its plot is riddled weirdly with conveniences and moments of genuinely good, heartfelt acting. Topped off with a ****** darth vader pun while we cheer for the villain because we barely care about the heroes?
    7. The Last Jedi - (7.5/10) Basically **** this movie. I have no love for it and it barely scrapes this 7.5 rating. It drags down Force Awakens, it drags down Star Wars as a series. Its stupid and boring and thrashes through the awesomeness that is Skywalker lore, etc. Buried by the fear in its limitations.
    8. Revenge Of The Sith - (5.5/10) I enjoy much of the action and plot. Just the right amount of jar jar.
    9. Attack Of The Clones - (4/10) Barely watchable, but less jar jar and no jake lloyd, more obi wan = better than TPM.
    10. The Phantom Menace - (4/10) Barely watchable save for darth maul.

    1. Empire strikes back - no explain
    2. A new Hope - it started it all
    3. The Force Awakens - I love the mixture of the new characters and the old established
    4. Rogue One - dark, gritty and I love Scarife
    5. Return of the Jedi - I don't like the Endor-stuff, thats why it's here
    6. Solo - really loved the movie, it showed the darker, crime-driven places
    7. Attack of the Clones - I love the settings of Kamino and Geonosis..and Natalie
    8. Phantom Menace - still a fun movie to watch and I love Naboo (not the gungans, though)
    9. Revenge of the Sith - it was to much Corruscant and too few exotic planets (though Kashyyk and Mustafar were interesting, but to few screentime)
    10. The Last Jedi - nothing to say about this s*** Canto Bight was interesting

    1. SW (ANH)
    2. TESB

    5. TPM
    6. Solo
    7. TFA

    Hate to say it but 5-10 are all just different degrees of 'bad' movies.

    The prequels are awfully made movies but the story told in all 3 of them is far more compelling than anything happening in TLJ, that's what gives them the edge IMO.


    And yes I do think the prequels are awful 'films'.

    There was a time when I could pretty solidly rank the Star Wars movies, but now it's getting kind of hard. There are too many movies that I'm just "meh" about. ROTS, Solo, and TFA all fall about the same spot, it's really just a matter of which I prefer at any given moment. Rogue One and ESB constantly compete for second spot.

    A New Hope
    Empire Strikes Back
    Rogue One
    Return of the Jedi
    The Phantom Menace
    Revenge of the Sith
    Solo
    The Force Awakens
    Attack of the Clones
    The Last Jedi

    Edit: I just realized this is the same ranking I used on the first page. I guess not much has changed since Solo first came out.

    I haven't seen Rogue One or Solo yet, but I'll rank the rest.

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

    The Last Jedi ruined Luke and I can't forgive those people for doing that to him.

    It's funny; there's only two Star Wars movies that I would consider to be unequivocally great, and they happen to be the first two that were made. That doesn't sound very good for a series as long lasting as this is, but we're all still here, hating and loving it in equal measure.

    Agreed there ^ I suppose that is true of most long running franchises, though Star Wars is such a uniquely massive entity that there isn't much to compare it to. Disney ensures a level of competence and production value, but they also shave off any of the risks that can turn a good movie into a great one.

    1.) Empire Strikes Back (9/10)
    2.) Star Wars (9/10)
    3.) Return of the Jedi (8/10)
    4.) Force Awakens (7/10)
    5.) Last Jedi (7/10)
    6.) Solo (6/10)
    7.) Rogue One (6/10)
    8.) Phantom Menace (5/10)
    9.) Revenge of the Sith (5/10)
    10.) Attack of the Clones (3/10)

    RATING BY JOY, NOT BY QUALITY

    1. Rogue One
    2. Solo (I actually loved the spinoffs)
    3. Revenge of the Sith
    4. Attack of the Clones
    5. The Force Awakens
    6. The Phantom Menace (Obi Wan alone makes the prequels easier to sit through compared to the original trilogy)
    7. Return of the Jedi
    8. The Empire Strikes Back
    9. A New Hope
    10. The Last Jedi (the only movie I actively dislike, and was frustrated by the experience)

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

    It's not a list where some films couldn't swap places depending on the day, but I'll go with this for now. It's mainly Revenge of the Sith that I feel I might be slightly more inclined to rewatch than some of the ones above it (it gets definitive if we count rewatches that have already happened).
