Ranking of Star Wars Movies from Best to Worst:
1. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)One of the greatest works in cinema history, conveys everything that Star Wars is about while telling a thrilling story.
2. Rogue One (2016)A standalone tale of the rebels who sacrificed all to get the secret Death Star plans, exceptional in so many respects, some wonder if this is possibly #1?
3. Return Of The Jedi (1983)A feel-good story that contains all of the classic Star Wars elements. A few shortcomings leave this film far behind Rogue One.
4. Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)
The original piece that set the tone for one of the greatest stories ever told.
5. Revenge Of The Sith (2005)
A dark and depressing tale that rises far above the other prequels.
A fun nostalgic film that has many flaws, however a rousing performance by Harrison Ford makes up for many shortcomings.
7. The Phantom Menace (1999)
Though disappointing to many fans who had waited decades for the prequels to be made, Lucas worked hard to make it as credible a Star Wars movie as possible. On a negative note this film did give birth to Jar Jar Binks, one of the most controversial Star Wars characters of all time, possibly the most despised until Luke Skywalker’s recent return.
8. Attack Of The Clones (2002)
Lots and lots of CGI work was done and we fans can tell, far too contrived. But, all things considered, not terrible and in relation to recent works, kind of awesome.
9. Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
Far far behind Clone Wars, this film is weak yet has good intentions, this tale falls short in so so many respects. There was a ton of potential, but the failure began with the casting of Han Solo and ultimately lies with almost every part of the movie. Chewy’s story might have been the only positive part of this creation.
10. The Last Jedi (2017)
This is a painful movie that requires many bathroom breaks to survive. The scenes where Kylo Ren tries to use mind communication are beyond awful and Princess Leia is annoying at best.
11. The Rise Of Skywalker
This should not have been made. An insult to fans everywhere.
