What is your favorite "STAR WARS" movie?

Prev1
Let's have some fun...This topic is pretty much self explanatory. Just post and share whichever "STAR WARS" movie you consider to be your favorite (every choice is subjective). You are free to tell everyone why, if you want to. Keep it civil, though. :)

I'll start off and say that my favorite is "RETURN OF THE JEDI" hands down.

I guess it was always this way. I was born in 1990, and I was introduced to Star Wars at a very young age. My family had the CBS/FOX tapes of the Original Trilogy released in the 80's. Out of the 3, I watched Return Of The Jedi the most. It wasn't until many years later when I realized that it was my favorite.

  • For the simple reason it has Wilford Brimley leading ewoks to assault a medieval castle filled with space pirates.

    Return of the Jedi for sho. ESB a close second, but RotJ will always have a special place in my heart.
  • Rotj for me. Rogue one is super cool too.

    Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

    Not only the best Star Wars movie, but one of the best sci-fi movies ever.

    Pretty much every part of the movie is great, with the highlights being the Battle of Hoth, Luke and Yoda, Boba Fett, Han and Leia, and the phrases "do or do not," "I am your father," and "I know."

  • The Empire Strikes Back. Ever since then, everyone has been chasing the dragon. Nothing will ever be better than it. People want every Star Wars movie since the Empire Strikes Back to be of the same standard, and that’s why people get mad and hate every Star Wars movie since then, because they set the bar way to high.

    It should be called bar wars for this reason.
  • Right now it’s:

    sb_payoff_1-sht_v6_lg_tm_lg_e528c9e9.jpeg?region=0%2C0%2C810%2C1200

    Really liked it, and even more so after having rewatched at home.

    But all in all it’s Empire Strikes Back, with really no competition. I’ve loved it since I was a kid back in the eighties. It has everything. Large scale battles, the band of adventurers, Yoda, the best lightsaber duel in Star Wars... and on and on and on. I just can’t get tired of it.

  • RotJ, followed closely by ESB. ESB has the best score/soundtrack in all of Star Wars! Attack of the Clones for the PT. Solo is my current crush! It’s fantastic!! Rogue One is pretty superb too. And the ST... Look, I’m just a complete homer for Star Wars.
  • Revenge of the Sith.

    ROTJ 4 LYFE!

    It's the first movie to fully capture Lucas' vision of a space opera serial that syncretized genres and archetypes
    while delivering a universal spiritual message. And between the Jabba stuff and the main conflict, it's like 2 movies in one!

    I mean come on it's got-

    Gangsters
    Cowboys
    Pirates
    Monsters
    Robots
    Fish-Men officers
    A tribe of man-eating teddy bears
    The best space battle of the saga
    That climax!
    The return of Anakin!
    Vader unmasked!

  • Empire Strikes Back is my absolute favorite Star Wars movie. Rogue One by a close second but there's something unexplainably special about Episode 5 that makes it my favorite.

    I keep changing this for whatever reason but ehh...It can stay like this I suppose.
  • Phantom Menace, Empire Strikes Back, and Rogue 1 are all up there for me. No particular order.
  • Empire Strikes Back for sure

    My current order of favorite SW movies is...


    #1 - The Force Awakens.
    While there is the argument that its very similar to ANH, I think that TFA captures the essence of what I love about Star Wars the most. It introduces some very awesome characters (who, imo, are more compelling than their PT or OT counterparts), has some wonderful combat scenes, a great story, great visuals and perfect music <3 For me, TFA is everything that Star Wars should be. Its fun, without being particularly childish, it pays homage to the original movies without it being overbearing, and on a technical level its wonderful. Like, how the lighting changes during the Han Solo/Kylo Ren scene to fit with Kylo's emotions <3 I love the movie so much <3 Every time I watch the movie, I get goosebumps every time Rey catches the lightsaber in the forest.
    On the other hand, the movie criminally underuses Phasma

    #2 - The Last Jedi
    There are a few rough edges, but overall its an almost perfect movie. I love it :) Also, Finn and Reys hug makes me cry like every time. I love the interactions between Rey and Kylo. I love like everything that happens on Crait. I love Luke Skywalker's character arc. Amazing :) I love the movie's sense of irony also.
    But again... underuse of Phasma. I really want to see her be awesome and kill some people

    #3 - Rogue One.
    The whole character motivation thing is a little meh, but I love the movie overall. I want to single out the Darth Vader scene at the end as like one of the best things Ive ever seen in a movie. I love K-2SO. He adds humor to the movie, but doesnt make it childish :)

    #4 - Empire Strikes Back.
    Its a great movie... to say it doesnt really have a plot. Theyre more of a series of vaguely-connected events.
    I think the Leia/Han romance could be better and less... well. Meh. But overall, great movie. :)

    #5 - A New Hope.
    Its a great movie, I like it :) Not my favorite, but I still watch it often :)

    #6 - Return of the Jedi.
    The Ewoks (though adorable and cute) kinda push my limits of how much I can believe. I see Return of the Jedi as the start of the more childish aspects of Star Wars. Ignoring that though, I love the movie. :)

    #7 - Revenge of the Sith.
    Its an enjoyable movie, and definitely the best of the PT :)

    #8 - The Phantom Menace.
    Darth Maul and Qui-Gon make the movie definitely more interesting than AotC
    On the other hand, Jar Jar

    #9 - Attack of the Clones.
    Its ok, but I find it... not the most enjoyable thing in the world :P

    Empire of course with a new hope closely in second my fav Disney one is rogue one and fav prequel one is revenge of the sith
  • The first one, A New Hope. Has the best music, and Grand Moff Tarkin, and I love the introduction to Han and Chewie. And pretty much all of Alec Guiness' dialogue adds believability to the Force. The end sequence where Leia puts medals on the heroes is the best ending scene in all cinema. Name a better ending, I dares ya! lol It also didn't leave a cliffhanger for a sequel, works just fine standalone.

    Empire is clearly best. The drama in the movie and plot twists are amazing. I think Last Jedi is the best one out of the non-original trilogy.

    Not really, it's just hard to see somene bash even the original trilogy, star wars community is divided because one bashed the prequel triology, but once the original trology (which were always claimed as the best no matter what) is bashed once the new trilogy came out (whch aint't complete yet actually), you maybe think that star wars is not the way it used to be? I hope that episode 9 will complete the trology, if kylo gets even better I will be happy. Anyway just my 2 cents.
