May The Fourth Be With You
Star Wars. It’s a cultural phenomenon. Long before the Avengers ruled the silver screen, George Lucas’ space opera captured the hearts and imaginations of moviegoers everywhere in the late 1970s.
I’ve ranked the Star Wars films before, but I’m going to do it again (without referring to my previous ranking). Tell me where I’m wrong…
- 1. Episode IV: A New Hope
2. Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
3. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
4. Rogue One
5. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
6. Episode VII: The Force Awakens
8. Episode II: Attack of the Clones
9. Episode I: The Phantom Menace
10. Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
Where will Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker fit into the saga?
[Ok, I couldn’t resist looking back to see how I ranked them shortly after seeing Solo in theaters. I had ESB above ANH, and Solo came in at #4 because it was new and shiny. In the end, it doesn’t really belong in this list because it has so little to do with the overall saga, but I love it anyway. AOTC actually settled into the last spot. So there have been some slight adjustments over the past year, but nothing really earth-shattering.]
