View Full Version : Best SW movie?

01-26-2002, 08:17 PM
I know this has probably been asked before, but I haven't seen it so, I am asking anyways. So, which Star Wars movie is your favorite? Mine would be....... ROTJ. I don't know why, just is.
I would rate it like this:
4. The Phantom Menace
3. Empire Strikes Back
2. A New Hope
1. Return of the Jedi

I am, however, looking forward to Attack of the Clones a ton. I am also extrememely excited about Episode III. I love Plo Koon and all the Jedi Council and so that is why I know I will like the Prequels also. I actually liked TPM, but I liked the trilogy more, of course.

6.The Phantom Menace
5.Episode 3 - Its going to better than EP1 for sure :)
4. Empire Strikes Back
3. A New Hope
2. Return of the Jedi
1. Attack Of The clones

Even though AOTC isn't out yet,its my favourite from what I've seen,heard and read :)

6. Phantom Menace
3. Return of the Jedi
2. Empire Strikes Back
1. Star Wars (ANH for the neophytes:rolleyes: )

I see ANH as the quintessential Star Wars film, of course. However, I think ESB had the best story and character developement and ROTJ had the best production design, costumes and the coolest looking aliens.

IMO ANH is the best followed by ESB, ROTJ, and TPM.

In order of release.

1. Empire Strikes Back
2. A New Hope
3. Return of the Jedi
4. The Phantom Menace

Empire is my favorite because it is so dark, plus it has the richest story and development of plot. We learn that:

1. From Yoda "There is another."
2. We learn Vader is Luke's Father
3. New characters (Yoda, Lando, and Boba Fett, pre Special Edition)
4. Han Solo gets frozen in Carbonite
5. C-3P0 blasted apart
6. Luke gets his hand cut off
7. Leai and Han reveal their love for each other.

Come on now. A great story. ESB all the way baby!

Star Wars and Empire are my favorite. ESB squeaks out as my favorite, cause there's no whiny Luke scenes.

ROTJ and TPM have their moments, but aren't good overall, IMO. I just don't care for them as much.

ANH-because its what got me hooked on Star Wars.

ESB- because its the best one.

ROTJ- Good ,but could do without the Ewoks

TPM- Good , but had a lot of missing parts which GL saw fit to cut out.[But we won't go into that]

1. A New Hope- without it this site would not exist. Nuff said.
2. Empire strikes back- mean, moody & the best musical score of the saga (so far).
3. Phantom menace- at first I was dismayed, but with the passing of time & the dvd it's kinda grown on me.
4. Return of the jedi- well, it ties up the loose ends I suppose.

4. The Phantom Menace
3. Return of the Jedi
2. A New Hope
1. The Empire Strikes Back

Basically I have ANH and ESB as a tie. However, I give Empire the nod. All the main characters were back with the additions of Yoda, Lando, and Boba. The entire story was a surprise from beginning to end. Almost completely unpredictable. Granted I was 6 when I saw it. I thought it was the most unique one so far.

I think ESB is the best of the films, but ANH is my favorite because it's crafted with so much heart and vision.

01-28-2002, 08:52 AM
I can't believe that this is not the general thought on this board.

1 Empire
3 Ep I

Empire and ANH are really tied for first in my book. It just depends on whatever I feel like on any given day as to which one I like best.

01-28-2002, 01:30 PM
1. Empire
2. ANH
4. TPM

Of course, I think the new #4 slot will be awarded to AOTC, because I can tell already it will be a step above TPM.
I love them all though, really I do!!

01-28-2002, 06:54 PM
ESB!! Yep, thats the best for me. ROTJ gets second place, and i give ANH and TPM a tie.

01-28-2002, 08:14 PM
ESB would be my favorite if it weren't for that HORRIBLE face Luke makes when he finds out his heritage. Geez! That face also made me hate Luke Skywalker putting him at my second least favorite character, Lando gets the least favorite title.

Just a curious side note, how old are you? It seems to me that from all the fans I've talked to in the last 5 years, everyone over the age of 18 prefers ESB or ANH. But the "new" or younger generation of Star Wars fans like ROTJ the best.

I remember through the age of about 15 I liked Jedi the best too. Then I started liking Empire because it truly is the best in the saga.

I'm 25. Saw the original Star Wars in the theatre. I was only a couple of months old, but it was the first movie I ever saw. I kind of think that is cool. Plus ESB is the best SW movie. The plot alone beats out the others.

I am 16. The reason I like ROTJ is because a. Jabba's Palace b. Death Star II c. Darth Vader battle like no other d. Awesome space battle e. No ugly Luke faces f. Best graphics etc.
That's basically why I prefer ROTJ.:D

01-29-2002, 09:08 PM
I like ROTJ the best (I'm 18 btw), then TPM, then ESB and then ANH.
I just always have liked ROTJ the best.......when I was younger, I guess it was because of Luke's green lightsaber, but as I got older and watched each film more, I just saw more that I liked in Jedi: Vader vs. Luke (better battle than Empire); Vader is finally revealed and turned back to the Light side of the Force; Ewoks (I don't care, I like 'em); the Emperor has a bigger role...and on and on and on........I know I'll have tons of people that will not agree with me, and that's also because I put TPM before Empire.

Personally, I like ROTJ the best and I'm 19. I think its mainly due to four factors:

1. The final epic battle
2. The death of several main villains
3. The Emperor's Force Lightning attack
4. The redemption of Anakin
