Haven't updated this in a long time, and since the Sequel Trilogy turned out to be a huge dud for me:
- Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
- Episode IV: A New Hope
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
- Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
- Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
- Episode I: The Phantom Menace
- Episode II: Attack of the Clones
- Episode VII: The Force Awakens
- Solo: A Star Wars Story
- Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
- Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker
The last time I posted, TFA was way higher, because it had just come out, and is--at the very least--the only movie in the Sequel Trilogy that actually tried to make something of itself. However, it and the others are near the bottom now, because nothing of any value in the Sequels ended up panning out into something interesting. TLJ was a well-made film, but its story is plodding and bloated, and while it managed to elicit some emotion from me at first, I later realized that it was all false flags, and that there was really nothing behind it.
TROS was a mess, plain and simple. A terrible, chaotic, cringeworthy mess. It's by far the worst Star Wars film ever made, in my opinion...
For those who might be wondering why I have placed the Prequels higher than even the best of the Sequels, here's why: while the Prequels are technically-flawed, often severely so, they had a consistent and solid story behind them. That story may have been executed sloppily, but it was a good story, and I would rather watch a trilogy of awkward, technically-flawed films with a solid underlying story than a trilogy of technically-superior films filled with vapid characters, a basic, predictable story, and no unified direction or vision.
