Star Wars day is coming (May the 4th Be With You) this Saturday and maybe you want to sit down and watch a couple of the films to get into that Star Wars spirit!   I am a big Star Wars geek and I have decided to rank the main 8 movies from worst to best with maybe some controversial results.

8. Episode II: Attack of the Clones

This movie in a word was terrible.  As far as the prequels were concerned it was the weakest of the series with cringe worthy dialogue.  Jango Fett was cool…

7. Episode I: The Phantom Menace

On a first viewing I thought this movie was amazing but as I watched it more I realized plot was over complicated, young Anakin was annoying and then there was…well…Jar Jar Binks.   The pod race and Darth Maul were highlights…

6. Episode 8: the Last Jedi

This film tried to push the reset button on the series at the wrong time.  Where as Empire Strikes Back left us wanting more…this left me confused.  Seriously who kills off Admiral Ackbar!

5. Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith

Of the original prequels this movie is the most solid.   It’s dark and introduces one of my favourite characters General Grevious!

4. Episode 7: The Force Awakens

What a great way to introduce us back into the Star Wars universe while moving the story ahead.  Yes I cried during it but if you didn’t you don’t have a soul.

3. Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back

Fans often say this is the best of the series.  Even though it has iconic moments of fatherhood, Lando, frozen Solo’s and ripping open Tauntauns for warmth it is just a step below the next movie for me.

2. Episode 6: Return of the Jedi

I love Return of the Jedi from the speeder bikes to the Ewoks to Jabba’s palace this movie is exciting, epic and fun!

1. Episode 1: A New Hope

This is the O.G. movie.  The one that started it all.  The movie that introduced me to action figures.  There will never be another movie like it!

There you go!   What do you think?  Do you agree?  The final movie in this series The Rise of Skywalker will be out in theatres December 20th and it looks so good!   Happy May the 4th!
