Revenge of the Sith is the new Star Wars king.

Empire Strikes Back, all the way. :)

The Empire Strikes Back, mostly because it's a departure from the Hollywood "heroes always win". The Alliance has its butt kicked in that movie.

Not to mention that it shows off the Empire as the horrifying killing machine that it is.

Empire Strikes Back all the way, thus, just like Gaarni said.

empire strikes back is my favorite

Revenge of the Sith....because the battles where more extensive (better technology) and more modern...I just liked it the most.

11-08-2005, 02:28 PM
I voted Empire just because there's not a bad moment throughout.

ANH is my next favorite but you don't really get into Vader's character much like you do in the other five movies.

RotJ and RotS are tied for third. While they contain most of the best scenes in all of the movies, they also contain some of the worst scenes. I love Anakin's fall and redemption. Order 66 was great as was the Battle of Endor. But the bad things are General Greivous and Han's character in RotJ. Greivous is a pathetic Boba/ Maul/ Jango/ 'cool badguy of the movie' wannabe. Han was no longer a scoundrel and his character changed a bit. Luke actually was the coolest hero of RotJ.

TPM and AotC are pretty much tied at last. I love 'em yet I hate 'em. Liam Neeson and Christopher Lee are awesome. They both have some cool action scenes but contain some very bad scenes as well. I love the podrace and lightsaber duel in TPM, but Jar Jar is annoying and Jake Lloyd sucks. I love the Coruscant action scene and all the parts on Tatooine in AotC, but the love scenes made me wanna puke!

*end rant*

Yeah, ESB for me :cool:

11-08-2005, 03:52 PM
Jedi has and always will be my favorite.

11-08-2005, 04:22 PM
Revenge of the Sith. By far my favorite movie.

11-08-2005, 05:12 PM
Revenge of the Sith, Hands down

11-08-2005, 05:59 PM
Revenge of the Sith came close, but Return of the Jedi is still number 1 for me.

11-08-2005, 06:34 PM
I'm torn! Empire Strikes Back for the story hands down! However Revenge of the Sith with the special effects and the saber battles cannot be touched! :duel: :duel: Here's hoping now that we have all six films that an extended version of all will be released! :lsduel:

Return of the Jedi. The conclusion to the greatest science fiction saga ever. Great battles, epic duel, great story... well, I admit, ewoks are a little silly. But it's perfect in every other aspect.

11-08-2005, 09:18 PM
I'd have to say Empires, because the rebels gettin their butt handed to' em and hoth helps show a large part of the rebellion vs empire story, which i actually enjoy far more than the characters in the movies. (I also like tauntauns lol) ROTJ was very close behind but i just cant stand those ewoks.

11-09-2005, 05:25 PM
I voted Empire

I didnt vote for TPM or AOTC just because while I think that they are on their own good films, they dont fit with the feel of starwars (which IMO is why everyone hates them - they dont feel right)

ROTS is good but its just not a contender - its a feeling, i cant really explain why. Although it had some brilliant scenes in: order 66. Mace vs palpy and obi vs grievious. But it just lacked something

ANH is probably second. It's classic starwars. it started it all off and it has a lightness to it that none of the others from the OT have. It has Luke as a learner with obi-wan before it gets too serious with yoda and it has everyone meeting everyone else and it's got a niceness to it (although bye bye Ben)

ROTJ is probably joint second with ANH. It has some of the best scenes and it shows luke as a fully fledged jedi, but the ewoks just let it down: the empire brought to its knees during the teddy bears picnick.

ESB is the winner because it is the only time that we really see the rebels loose. it shows both sides to the civil war and it really opened up the SW galaxy as it had Cloud City, which isnt a space station and it isnt ground... also, IMO it had the best lightsaber fight in the OT.

Empire is the best written and made, but I personally like ROTJ the most bescause everything gets resolved, its got the most suspense and is the most exciting. DEFINATELY the most kickass juggling of three seperate final battles. most intense movie ever.

11-11-2005, 08:28 AM
Return of the Jedi cause Palpatine dies by Vader's hand. That proves that good kicks evil's ass. It also proves that the apprentice Sith kills the master Sith.

Commander Obi-Wan
11-11-2005, 06:16 PM
I think ESB, and RotJ was one of the best of the OT, but I like RotS the most.

11-12-2005, 06:50 AM
1.ESB: Best Story ever
2.ROTS: Best FX ever
3.ANH: Just pure Star Wars magic :D

11-12-2005, 12:35 PM
Ahh Revenge is just all action, Empire has got AT-ATs and snow! Its gotta win! :p

I voted Empire.

11-14-2005, 09:25 AM
I'd probably say Empire...

Commander Obi-Wan
11-14-2005, 02:06 PM
Ahh Revenge is just all action

That's one of the reasons why I like it the most...and also it puts all the movies together. Though ESB was my fav. OT movie (2nd fav. for all the Star Wars movies).

11-17-2005, 04:08 PM
Episode I for me.

11-18-2005, 08:29 PM
I put 3, but its really a toss up between 3,5, and 6.

11-18-2005, 11:15 PM
Chose Episode V....no reason in particular; only I think it's better than Episode III

11-19-2005, 12:17 AM
ROTJ. Although I almost went with Episode III because of the superior action sequences. A lot of effort went into those saber battles.

11-23-2005, 07:24 AM
I think episode III for me because it a key point in the star wars saga. but I think all the movies kick ass acept for episode 1, it was gd @ the time but now I think it sucks.

peace out and "For Those About To Rock......We Salute You".

11-23-2005, 10:13 AM
I chose Episode 2. Episode 3 was great, but I feel it was made to just fill a hole without much thought on the story itself.

So yes, EP2 for me.

11-23-2005, 01:56 PM
[QUOTE=lordreserie]acept for episode, it was gd @ the time but now I think it sucks.QUOTE]

i think you forgot to say which one. I'm curious as to which was good at the time but isnt now. (Ep 1 always sucked!)

11-24-2005, 02:42 AM
I think A good percentage of you voting for Revenge of the Sith are just blindsided, by the hype of the Pre-Trilogy and the pretty effects. Give it a good 10 years, and you'll soon realise that ESB and the Original Trilogy will stand the test of time, even longer than the Pre-Trilogy.

The only reason the Pre-Trilogy is even worth watching, is because of the originals. I never knew how much I loved the originals - with it's great story and character development - until after watching all 6 episodes back-to-back...
The Empire Strikes Back, is so good, George Lucas barely changed anything in the 1997 re-release. I didn't see one crappy CG character in ESB. Just a few scenery changes, and a few new Bespin city flyby scenes...Nothing that effected the story - nobody, shot first...

The Empire Strikes Back is, hands down, the best of all. Best story, best dialogue, best characters, best ACTING! You can take your CG effects and shove-up your arse, because they don't mean a thing if nobody can act..

It was a toss-up between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. RotS has better graphics because of the technology. The battle scenes in Rots are also better. ESB also as some good battle scenes and by far the best movie from the Original trilogy. But, I'd have to say RotS.

11-25-2005, 06:27 PM
The Empire Strikes Back is the most human of the six - Han Solo shows his worth as a true hero by improvising brilliantly when the Falcon's Hyperdrive fails, and the opening battle on Hoth overshadows any other conflict in the saga. CGI goes a long way, but Sith can't beat Empire.

11-27-2005, 06:02 PM
From favourite to least favourite :

V, IV, III, I / II (tie), VI

Empire is pretty cool. There's everything you'd want in a SW movie. Huge ground battle (Hoth), nice lightsabre duel, heroes whacking stormies (could city), Boba Fett (not a weird young version) and even some space action (though it's a bit lacking).

ANH is just a classic. I used to think it was boring (please don't flame!), but I have grown to really like it (*especially* after seeing RotS). There's some nice action scenes on the DS, as well as the canon SW battle, i.e. the Trench Run.

RotS is pretty cool for it's huge space battle and great lightsabre duels. I do think that the scenes between Anakin and Padme are pure junk, and that's the major reason why it's in the third place. Grievous is pretty cool too!

TPM and AotC are rather uneventful, in my opinion. TPM has a place in my heart for the initial sequence (don't know why, but I really like to see Obi and Qui-Gon whacking droids in the TF ship). AotC because of Dooku (though his character really should have been more developped). He still saves AotC from being last though.

RotJ... well... I think the Tatooine part is boring, there's not that much going on while they're on Endor, Yoda dies (damn!) and having an Ewok party as the ending of a 6 movies saga isn't really satisfying, IMO. Perhaps RotJ would have been fifth if Dooku was not in AotC.

Personally, the main problem I see with the prequels is that George didn't plan very well what would be in his movies. Dooku should have been at least mentionned or seen for a couple of minutes in TPM (why not make him a council member or something?). He also dies way too fast in RotS (even though I perfectly understand that RotS is focused on Anakin, I think that Dooku's character could have been way more used and developped). Same can be said about Maul. He says two bloody sentences in the whole movie... that's a waste (I'm not saying he shouldn't have been there; his character should have been developped more). Having Boba popping out in AotC is also quite sad.

11-27-2005, 06:37 PM
Empire Strikes Back, for great snow-fighting and hand-losing action.

11-27-2005, 07:33 PM
i actualy voted on the phantom menace but not that ive thought about it... i dont really have a true favorite. i like all of the star wars movies.

11-27-2005, 10:19 PM
Mine is phantom menace because it shows off the "unknown" type jedi such as Plo-Koon,Adi-Gallia,Ki-adi-mundi,Mace windu and all the others.It does not realy show them off but it does show them in back ground at least.

11-27-2005, 11:56 PM
Return of the Jedi by far!!!!!! I and II sucked!!! I think that the classics where better than most of the Prequeals but I did like ROTS....

11-28-2005, 12:45 AM
For those who think RotS had great SFX, have you ever seen LotR? That series puts all other movies to shame.

Jurassic Park 1 also has some great SFX that stands the test of time and looks/ feels more real than RotS.

Still, I do love that film. Just not for the action or SFX but for the highlights of the story.

11-28-2005, 03:03 AM
Return of the Jedi is my all time favorite. ;)

12-06-2005, 03:16 PM
My fav is Return of the Jedi.

12-07-2005, 03:51 PM
definatley episode 1 !

it has Darth Maul, the best sith ever.

but i did like episode 3 very much, the effects and battles were great.

12-09-2005, 05:58 PM
:blast5: revenge of the sith most of all because it connects all the story lines together.And it has much more speacil effects than all the other movies.And a little more action!

12-12-2005, 04:49 PM
who dosnt think episode 3 is the best?

12-13-2005, 02:43 AM
Me. I think it's the worst only ahead of EP II. Well, both were equal turds, basically.

My favorite is ANH.

12-13-2005, 03:32 PM
who dosnt think episode 3 is the best?

It's inferior to ROTJ (any version, take your pick), IMHO. ;)

The Doctor
12-13-2005, 09:51 PM
I think RotJ is still the best movie to date. ESB is a close second, followed by RotS, then AnH, TPM, and AotC coming in last.

12-16-2005, 01:05 AM
I forgot to say WHY I liked ROTJ the best... let's see:

Character development for Luke. He's matured into a Jedi. In ANH he started out as the whiny naive kid, in ESB he's screaming and banging his head on things, still wet behind the ears. Awesome space battle. The Battle over Endor is THE best space battle in the entire series. Sure, the CG-fest in ROTS is pretty, but the action is much harder to follow and it's over far too quickly. There's no sense of urgency, it's just "oh look at this huge battle" and then we're focusing on hitting the buzz droid's central eye. The action in the ROTJ battle is intense, can be followed, and is moving towards a desperate conclusion. Flying inside the Death Star? Cool. The scene where the generator explodes and the Falcon whooshes ahead of the fireball is just awe-inspiring.

Great lightsaber battle. Sure, ROTS was packed with lightsaber battles, but they were rather short, full of CG and flips, plus the lightsabers had a weak sound when they hit each other. The blades looked pretty though. TPM has the best lightsaber battle in my opinion. We get to SEE the action for most of the second battle (not the one with Maul in the desert), and it looks awesome. The blades look like the classic blades of ESB/ROTJ and not quite as overdone as they do in the later two prequels. But ROTJ's is up there. It's intense, and the blades sound and look awesome (well they looked awesome until Lowry Digital screwed them up, but they still look pretty darn good).

Jabba the Hutt ROCKS. Not that imposter in ANH, and no, the fat Irish guy (rest his soul) is NOT Jabba. He was never intended to be, he was purely a stand in for a scene that didn't work. ROTJ Jabba IS Jabba, period. ;)

A giant slimy puppet could have been silly, but it was pulled off fantastically. He was every bit as memorable a character as Yoda was in ESB. Jabba's palace rocks. Now those are some scary/weird/cool aliens! And the Rancor was great. Though I will admit in the Special Edition the bad matte lines and blue screen artifacts became painfully obvious, those were fixed in the last edition.

Boba Fett dies. Yes! I admit, much of my pleasure at seeing him meet his Maker is due to my disgust with the fanboys that spurred his wankishness in the EU, but still. Cool looking character, gets pwn3d, nuff said. ;) It was the will of the force, end of story!

The Emperor. Steals the show! A witchy guy cackling could really have been silly, but his lines are pure gold. His "psychological" battle with Luke is convincingly pulled off. Excellent. The music, the lightning (forget the Emperor's slugs) and everything in that scene in the throne room is awesome and just gives me chills.

Speeder bike chase. So unsafe, so fast. So much fun to watch! No CG was used, and it still was awesome.

People bash ROTJ because they hate Ewoks, and they wanted the focus to be on Han Solo (or worse, they wanted him killed off) instead of Luke (face it, this movie was his time to shine). They whine about Fett's death or they get upset that Yoda basically tells Luke he's ready for his final challenge and then dies, but really, ROTJ is the best for me. I love it. Each of the other movies has its purpose and place in the trilogy, and they all have their strong points and weaknesses, but ROTJ will always have that special place in my heart. Even to this day, it just rocks. ;)

My sister's boyfriend apparently had some kids over (nephews or cousins or something) who were like "Star Wars sucks" so he showed them the original version of Jedi and they liked it. Now that's the power of the Force, baby!

12-16-2005, 03:44 PM
Kurgan's thoughts all ring true. Warm fuzzy feelings of me as an 8 year old kid watching his new VHS boxset (the last before the release of the SEs a couple years later) at least once a month, shooting up all the scum and villainy he could in Dark Forces, and playing with his vintage and PotF2 action figures come back to me. I miss the original theatrical cuts of those films and classic SW gaming of the '90s where it wasn't all about marketing but rather the game itself and all the action figures before they were remolded, repainted, and recarded 1000x over. I'll even overlook the mentioning of Boba Fett's death. I thought he was cool all on my own before the internet or any fan club subscriptions. He lives on despite George's attempt to kill the cool off in AotC! :p

i'm torn between episode III and Episode VI both are i think equal, VI becuse of the space fight, and III because of the lightsaber battles and Yoda's lines. though i wish their were more dogfights in VI and the space battle was drawn more out. but between them i can't decide though i do like every one of the movies and i wish that lucus will extend the series

12-21-2005, 02:05 PM
Well, ESB is coolest story-wise.

RotJ is also nice, it must be the great epic feel that I like. RotS almost have the same, though the feeling is not as great (lack of huge battles) but made it up by finishing the circle, and delivers a nice tragic (even with bad acting) tale.

12-22-2005, 02:46 AM
That says it all, right there, PoiuyWired. :)

01-04-2006, 03:45 PM
Its a hard desistion for me, Empire Strikes Bk or Return of the Jedi.....

I'll have to go for Return of the Jedi

Because Empire Strikes back has the best land battle in the star wars uni and has boba fett, my fav villian in it....but.....

Return of the Jedi had Boba fett in (getting kill granted), also has the best Space Battle not to mention the DS2 that could destroy ships as well as planets.
And it also had Leia in that sexy gold Bikini

01-05-2006, 10:32 AM
ESB by far....it made the biggest impact with the smallest scope imo.

It had the best acting, direction,drama and suspense unsurpassed by any other episode except for perhaps ANH. Also, it introduced perhaps the darkest and most spine tingling of all musical themes, The Imperial March.

I guess the bottom line for me is that ESB personified quality over quantity and susbstance over flash and it had no damn ewoks.

01-07-2006, 12:35 PM
episode III by a mile no doubt about it

Pink leader
01-08-2006, 09:11 AM
Jedi, closely followed by empire, then hope and then revenge

01-08-2006, 09:55 AM
1.ESB: Best Story ever
2.ROTS: Best FX ever
3.ANH: Just pure Star Wars magic :D

What he said.

But I would add that AotC had the best action sequence in all the films (Geonosis arena battle), and the Phantom Menace for me had the best lightsaber duel (Obi-Wan / Qui-Gon vs Darth Maul). Every one of the films had something memorable about it (in a good way) for me, and that's what makes the Star Wars saga so great.

01-08-2006, 05:14 PM

Gotta love Empire

01-24-2006, 08:17 PM
Empire Strikes Back. Great movie, great atmosphere, great character development. I really like how you go from ANH, which the heroes win, kind of a happy feeling, then you go to the second act and everything is falling apart. Great story telling. Empire Strikes Back just has a way to immerse me in the story line, no matter how many times I see it.

01-25-2006, 02:52 PM
I think the new films rely two mutch on special affects. Definatly The Empire Strikes back because of the clasic "Luke...I am Your Father!" but it didn's have a space battle which was disapointing. Return of the jedi is a close second. Personally I think the new films don't even compare to the old ones.

01-25-2006, 02:56 PM
epsiode 3 is my fav the battle with yoda and chancellor and obi wan and anakin were the best ever

Bah! Luke Vs. Vader. Father Vs. Son. Good Vs. Evil. The most incredibale battle ever and one of the most emotional. I don't see what the hype is about episode III it felt way too rushed and relied so mutch on special affects.

02-06-2006, 11:23 AM
Episode 1, because of the nice sabercombat scene

Steve-O Kreesh
02-09-2006, 05:19 PM
For anyone older than 25, it has to be Empire. For a long time, the first trilogy is all we had. Empire is the best film of the three, although Jedi is a close second IMO. Of the newest films, Sith is by far the best film. But my top three are:

1. Empire

2. Jedi (by a narrow margin)

3. Sith

02-10-2006, 09:00 AM
Empire Strikes Back. Its the best of all of them It has every angle a film needs!!

Love: Han-Leia
Action: Lightsaber battle and the Battle of Hoth
A Cruel Twist: Luke Is Vader's Son
A Cliffhanger: What will the Alliance do with Han Frozen in Carbonite

02-10-2006, 08:00 PM
As so many of you have said, I think III has the most awesome action evah. But the storyline sucks compared to V. I have parents who agree with my second sentence. My dad still believes ANH is Ep. I, because that's what it was in his day!

Darth Macca
02-11-2006, 10:20 AM
Revenge Of The Sith. The story line is immence, meets episode four brilliantly.

02-11-2006, 01:19 PM
Bah episode 3 sucks. Acting is crap story line is crap. Relies to heavily on special affects. For people who grew up watching the originals there is no comparison. Episode III is terrible. It is way too rushed. Anakin's turn to the dark side should not be over and done with in 5 minutes. It should take time. A grual fall to complete darkness would have been more interesting. To see him battle with himself, but then again he is a crap actor so it wouldn't have made any difference.

Fate's Decision

Boba Fett dies. Yes! I admit, much of my pleasure at seeing him meet his Maker is due to my disgust with the fanboys that spurred his wankishness in the EU, but still. Cool looking character, gets pwn3d, nuff said. ;) It was the will of the force, end of story!

I don't mean to bash but Boba Fett doesn't die. In the books, he is put as the most heavily armed mercinary in the galaxy, and he basically blows the sarlac pitt to smitharines. Though after he heals up from the massive damage he took blowing himself up, the Empire has already fallen and Boba finds himself rather unemployed by anybody.

As for my vote: Attack of the Clones. I can't believe it's losing!!!! Your taste for action breaks my fragile heart! Though I havn't seen ESB in a few years I can definately tell you that the excitement in AotC leaves it in the dust. I mean come on! I'll back myself up.
So, AotC is basically the grand hunt of the SW series. It starts out super-goth, everything is happy and peaceful, and then something blows up and kills a lot of people. Next the mystery begins to form in your mind as they have a few discussions amongst the primary characters, and then the bounty hunter girl chase begins which totally creeps you out, and you can't tell who is winning, who is most likely to win or what will happen once one side wins. Then the hunt for Jango starts, awsome plot where you still can't tell who is hunting or being hunted. Then the confusion at Kamino, Obi-Wan catches Jango red handed, Anakin flips out and goes Darth Vader on all the Tuskens and is all furious, overwhelmed by sadness and pleased with killing all those peoples, which is kinda freaky. Then the best battle of all 6 movies, Obiwan is in trouble and it's 3 heroes vs. hundreds of Geonosians, things look down and then the Jedi appear. Then the droids show up and things look down again and the Jedi are about dead when all the sudden, WHAM! there are hundreds of clone troopers all over the place and it's so awsome that you can't even comprehend how awsome it is. In fact, go look awsome up in the dictionary right now because I can go ahead and confirm that its deffinition is the Battle of Geonosis.

Here's the thing: If Episodes IV V and VI had the saber effects from III, I'd never watch anything else. Ever. It's so frikkin' awesome in Ep. III, but the storyline is only so-so. That's my only gripe with the OT; well that and that scene in ANH where Luke's hands drop a foot after turning off his saber all of a sudden. That's my ONLY gripe with that trilogy.

Definitely episode V. That's just because I'm deeply in love with AT-ATs. :atat:

For me, it definitely has to be Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I went to see it five times in the cinemas and I cried through the first two. It is definitely a powerful addition to the saga and it was so satisfying to see Anakin become Darth Vader and finally link the PT to the OT.

It's true the kids today will never understand the simple power of
"luke.....I am your father" becasue it's had the piss ripped out of it so much

to to add to that the slow daunting imperial march played for the first time in episode IV

I don't mean to bash but Boba Fett doesn't die. In the books, he is put as the most heavily armed mercinary in the galaxy, and he basically blows the sarlac pitt to smitharines. Though after he heals up from the massive damage he took blowing himself up, the Empire has already fallen and Boba finds himself rather unemployed by anybody.

This is only in the EU. Lucas himself said that Boba had died in the Sarlacc. Officially, he's dead.

ROTJ--I'm a big fan of Luke Skywalker, and seeing him finally make it to Jedi status and duel Vader was cool.
One of my favorite lightsaber duels, though, was Darth Maul vs. Qui-Gon and Obi-wan--could Maul move, or what? I know the actor had some martial arts traingin, but geez, was that guy _fast_.

I am an Empire Strikes Back fan. I think Empire has the most solid story in the whole saga. Episode III has some great graphics, but ESB takes home the gold.

hmmmm tough one....

ep1: the naboo fighters are SO cool... but darth maul makes that movie ok in my book..... but to pick it for the best.... to little of maul to make it so.

ep2: Speeder chase through coruscant. battle between obi and jango. 20 jedi fighting in battle. yoda kicking ass. its very close to my best. but it very much lacked space battle. so it doesnt get it for me

ep3: oh just the beginning gives me goosebumps. the drums at the start and then just POW into spacebattle. (ps i LOVE spacebattles :) ). order 66 was cruel, darkside all over. lets just say plain AWESOME :). (ps again. i love the dark side :p ) and the end battle between obi anakin... wow. very high on my list.. maybe even tied. but no... not the best.

ep4. reminds me so much of the old Star Wars Galaxies game.... its star wars at its best... makes you feel part of it. but no not the best.

ep5: introduced one of the coolest themes.... the imperial march. love it. darth vader at its best... story was great. but it missed my all time favorite thing.

ep6. this had the best thing. a HUGE spacebattle.... massive fighters against eachother.. capital ships.... just great... just AWESOME. ok the ewoks were bad :) but still... the space battle wins it for me.

best in my eyes. ROTJ

The return of the Jedi...is my favorite...because Anakin has been redeemed by his son..in the end

09-18-2006, 03:02 AM
Well, ROTJ is best because it's a happy landing.
AOTC is the good special effect
ROTS is the best lightsaber duels
ESB is best written...

Episode III is the best in my book. The acting was pretty terrible(except for Ian McDarmid), but the awesome action, music, and emotionally powerful storyline more than make up for it. And in response to what jediofdoom said, Anakin's turn to the darkside takes a bit longer than five minutes-more like 13 years. You should be able to see the anger in his face when, in Episode I, he's told by Mace Windu that he won't be trained. And in Episode II, he shows it when he slaughters the sand people, then gloats about it-"I killed them, I killed them all. They're dead, every single one of them. And not just the men.....but the women.....and the children too! They're like animals, and i slaughtered them like animals! I hate them!" So you're point about the quick change-it doesn't work. Anyway, Episode III dominates followed closely by Episode VI.

None of the Eps 1-3 are even close to any of the original trilogy. That being said, Sith is by far the best of the new ones, but there's still far too many cringe-inducing lines that would embarrass even the greenest first-year script-writing student.

Best to worst:

1) Empire
2) A New Hope
3) Jedi
4) Sith
5) Clones
6) Phantom

Before the prequel trilogy my favourite was Ep VI Return of the Jedi, but now it's Ep I The Phantom Menace. Why? Because of Darth Maul and his famous double-bladed lightsaber and the great swordfight scenes. The only shame is that Maul had about two lines in the entire movie.

Empire all the way.

I have to say Return of the Jedi for nostalgia reasons.

Give it a good 10 years, and you'll soon realise that ESB and the Original Trilogy will stand the test of time, even longer than the Pre-Trilogy.

I'm really surprised so many picked Sith over the other movies, or that anyone even liked the prequels, but I'll agree with Antizac's statement because you've got to admit that since I-III was all CG, those polygon counts are going to really standout in the future compared to the labor of love modeling that went into the FXs of IV-VI.
