Now there are star wars films a plenty, which is your overall favourite. Mine is probably The Return of the Jedi. I love the end space battle and everything. Attack of the Clones was an original episode and was quite pleasing, especially the final battle. Sooo many lightsabers.

Empire Strikes Back - it has everything, and is so well directed. It also includes my favourite line in a film EVER.

"Do...or do not. There is no try." - Yoda.

Absolutely right JediNyt, good call. It's just that there are no mods here and anymore the posting is very slow compared to what it used to be just a couple of months ago......



btw: A-O-T-C !!!! :D

"Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones."

Could there be a better movie? I didn't think so... it's the best for three simple facts:

1: Count Dooku, the best movie villain played by the best ever actor, is first shown in AOTC. More in "Episode III", please!

2: Yoda fights with his lightsaber. "Amazing, I think this sequence is! Got a chance to kick butt, I did!"

3: The Fett family getting a decent storyline after all those years of mystery. Plus Jango Fett revealing what all those weapons on the Mandalorian armour did.

All the other films are 99.99% perfect, but (in my opinion) AOTC is 100% perfect, and beats the other films by a fraction. I just hope "Episode III" will live up to the standards set... I'm thinking it will!

Empire by a longshot.

Hmm. In order of supreme superbness, id say:

1.Empire (6)
2.Attack of the Clones (2)
3.New Hope (4)
4.Return of the Jedi (5)
5.Menace (1)

Empire has every element but Clone wars has the best action sequences ever.

Right now, it's a tie between Clones and Empire, but I've got a feeling that Episode III will bump them both a spot. A movie so dark that Lucas is afraid nobody will like it :D We do love to see our heroes get screwed over, don't we?

On another note, I was watching RotJ last night... it was a movie that was very close to greatness but somehow fell way short. It didn't give us anything really new, in terms of planets and settings. We got Tatooine again (blast, I hate Tatooine! All it is is sand... "It's rough and coarse and it gets everywhere..."), and saw a California redwood forest. Got some terrible acting bits (Luke telling Leia that she's his sister is about the lowest point in the SW saga for me, really. Jar Jar Binks cannot compare to the terrible acting and gross connotation of Leia saying "Somehow, I've always known"... THEN WHY DID YOU FRENCH HIM, PRINCESS?!) and some very rushed exposition. Not to mention the Ewoks, who are the freakiest little buggers I've ever seen! They're little teddybears come to life and become cannibals! They're a race of Chuckies!

No doubt about it, everything that happens in the Emperor's throne room in RotJ is pure gold, but that's about all RotJ had going for it.

1.ESB
2.ANH
3.TPM

I, too, loved the scenes inside the Emperor's throne room. It's Ian McDiarmid: he is perfect as Palpatine, and is great in both the original trilogy and the prequels.

However, I must ask, Jedi_Monk: why place "The Phantom Menace" so low in your ranking? I know nearly everyone else feels the same, but what is wrong with Episode I? I thought it was amazing, and a brilliant film to either stand alone or start off the Star Wars saga. Why is the film so bad (apart form Jar-Jar Binks, because he is just there for the kids)?

EPISODE 1 Was the best cause you got see everyone develop

LiMP RABBiT

No offense but Ep. 1 stank, big time. For me it was the lack of backgrounds to all the characters. In the original trilogy, you saw to sides, Darth Vador and Luke, to really powerful characters. In Ep. 1, 2 random people waring cloaks were fighting some horned guy who had the misfortune of falling face first into a can of red and black paint. You just didn't feel connected to it. In Empire you had the whole, I'm so incredible good and I don't want to kill you dad but, well, youre just so darn evil, thing going on.

well now that you put it that way i agree.....i just liked seeing Qui-Gon jinn he's cooler then yoda in my opinion:D

How dare you. Have you not seen Yoda in Ep. 2. He is the supreme master of all things.

Just cause you dont like kids or gungans doesnt mean ep1 sucked. It was great. Even though your entitled to your own opinion. Dont go with what Hollywood and critics and pop culture says. They are full of poodu. GL is one of the best. If his type of movies dont appeal to you then fine. Dont impose on the good fans here. Im making a generalized statement not directed at anyone in particular. Read this:

You go, JediNyt! Personally, I loved "The Phantom Menace", and even Jar-Jar Binks grew on me after a time. A good, solid plotline (finding the chosen one), great characters (Qui-Gon Jinn, Darth Maul, Padme Amidala), brilliant battle scenes (Lightsaber duels, large-scale ground battles, space battles, pod races, Jedi versus Droids and stealth infiltration of the Royal Palace) and talented actors (Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Ian McDiarmid) make the film near-perfect, and a worthy addition to the Star Wars saga. People may say TPM sucked, but I loved it.

Yes a well, um yeah. I was hoping you wouldn't pick that up. My actual favourite was Return of the Jedi but for some reason a small pygmy jumped on my keyboard while I was typing that message and pounded the keys with his little fists. I dived for the backspace key but he was faster and hit enter before i could stop him. As for the fact that it is highly unlikely that a pygmy hitting random keys would actually spell all the names of the star wars films correctly, i can only say he was a very lucky little pygmy.

Satisfied?

My favourite is The Phantom Menace, because I like the battle between Gungans and Trade Federation. I like Jar Jar's and the battle droid's voice. And the pod racers were good too.

I like EP II cause it was so awesome and it was so monumental.
Then comes EP VI cause the Space battle of the Second Death Star. Then come EP I cause of the Duel of the Fates.

#1: Episode Five: Classic scenes, deep plot, great battles, very dark, Lucas at his finest. What's not to like?
#2: Episode Two: Amazing battle sequences, good plot (especially Palpatine's political manuevering), excellent foreshadowing and hole filling, Yoda vs. Dooku.
#3: Episode One: Excellent battle sequences, amazing ending lightsaber battle, decent plot, and again, Palpatine's manuevering.
#4: Episode Six: A bit linear and too light, great battles, thin but interesting plot, very good finishing movie.
#5: Episode Four: Extremely linear and light (unoriginal), but great plot, and a fairly good filler. Will be better when Episode III comes out.

Let's see it's hands down Return of The Jedi. Why you might ask? let's see, classic lightsaber duel between father and son (son is now a jedi knight) which is the best fighting scene for swordplay shown on the big screen/siskel and eibert. then of course there is the great battle over endor where a highly outnumbered wave of rebel starfighters are fighting their way to the death star against an almost impeneratable wall of tie fighters and intercepters (not to mention the entire imperial fleet of Star Destroyers) the death of Jabba the Hutt. need I go on?

The Empire Strikes Back


EP2 has too many cheesy lines and EP1 just had horrible lines.


hes some examples:

EP2

obi 1: "good call my young padawan." (COME ON!!!!)

EP1

anakin:"hey your a jedi too! pleased to meet you."

(GIVE ME A BREAK!!!! I WANT TO KICK THAT KID IN THE FACE!!!)

my opinion, i love the star wars movies but i think old george should get a co-writer for the third film.

Jedi_Monk
12-04-2002, 11:20 PM
Valo, you need to watch the OT again if you think the Prequels have the monopoly on cheesy lines :roleyess:

Nothing can beat, "Somehow, I've always known"

There's something very, very wrong with Leia, if she's really, "Always known..." :barf:

BTW, Jonathan Hales was co-writer of AotC.

yes my mistake after posting the reply i found out about the co-writer for AOTC and that just made me even more dissapointed.
2 writers letting those bad lines fly. i dont know. i think im going to post a new thread of Chessy Lines, that should be funny.


i have to say when i first saw ep2 in the theaters i was excitied and was hoping that the acting would be better than ep1, and it was all good until u get to the scene with obi1 and anakin in the elevator. and i was like "o know here we go again." but the action and story seemed to make up for that.

LiMP RABBiT
12-07-2002, 07:03 AM
I don't remember too many cheesey lines from ep2. Then again, I haven't seen it for a while. But the poorest acting and lines have to be from the runt of the litter, ep1. AHHHHHHHH save us. Suicide inducingly bad in some points.

"No I beg you to help us. We are your humble servants" for example. Said with the most menotonous voice she could use. And Anakins "Yipee!" every five seconds and his constant flirting with a princess whos old enough to be his mother ("Are you an angel" etc. etc.). The Cheese in its essence.

Also, did anyone else notice how racist it was. The chinese trade federation, the english jedi heroes with there american peaceful freinds (naboo + anikan) and the joly gungans who represent black americans. It is really insulting.

Jedi_Monk
12-07-2002, 02:04 PM
Oh Force, just shut UP about the racism! I'll tell you who represented blacks in Episode I: Captain Panaka and Mace Windu, two of the most kickass characters ever seen on screen!
