Greatest Star Wars Movies
I'm just gonna assume that not everyone has seen this movie because if everyone has the vote shpuld have been unanimous. This is the greatest film out of all Films: Star Wars, The Godfather, ALL OF THEM! While Star Wars A New Hope is a definite second, this is not only the greatest star wars film but the greatest film because it features the best Star Wars character, darth Vadar, in the prime of his character. I feel a New Hope kinda only demonstrated his power so we could be excited for an inevitable final fiht, but this showed just how evil he really is. Then, Luke loses. He didn't just get his hand cut off, and it wasn't the classic 'Heroes weapon flies out of his hand but he wins anyway' kinda thing. He lost! And the Darth Vadar says "No, I am your Father". Best twist ever. And it ends with us truly wanting more. I hope the upcoming Star Wars film will be as good as this one, but that would be one heck of a feet. Empire is the best movie ever made.
Darth Vader is the greatest villain in movie history. This is a movie wher yhe villain wins(kind of). Before Dark Knight, before Infinity War this was the movie that first showed the villain winning scenario. I love this movie. It is a true benchmark in moviemaking. Undoubtedly the best Star Wars movie. But my personal favourite I'd Return of the Jedi. Yes it's quite flawed and not as good as Empire. But for me it was the most rewatchable and nostalgic movie in the series. But from quality perspective Empire steals the cake.
Some of you may have heard of my opinion on the Empire Strikes Back, and it's certainly..., interesting in comparision to the rest of the Star Wars fandom who view it for one line.
This is a pretty great movie and follow-up to A New Hope. It improves on so much from it. For one, it feels a lot more "Star Wars-y". The original really didn't age well and it's quite boring with its settings and characters. This movie introduced Yoda and Darth Sidious. The planets and battles are legendary. Hoth, Dagobah and Bespin are really unique and interesting to explore, and the battles are great. The battle of hoth really kept me at the edge of my seat and the final duel between Vader and Luke is quite nice. But that's about it.
This movie certainly is NOT that masterpiece that everyone is making it out to be. Whenever I go on the internet, people only talk about how it's emotional for Luke and that ONE line (you know which one). So as you see, I love the movie for different reasons ...more
Yes, Yes, YES! 'The Empire Strikes Back' is obviously the choice for #1. This introduces a wide array of loved Star Wars characters, and including old ones from the previous movie to make an outstanding movie. The introduction of now beloved characters like Boba Fett, IG-88, Yoda, and Lando Calrissian made this more than the best film in the franchise! New locations, great action sequences, a stellar cast, and powerful storytelling made worth the time for casual movie-watchers and critics alike!
This is a decent movie. It's a little hard to watch, as the first half involves wanting to scream at Anakin to see how he's being manipulated by Palpatine, and the second half is very dark and depressing, but it is very well executed. All the prequels actually do a fantastic job showing how Palpatine masterminded his way into power, and this is the conclusion of that story.
This movie is very overrated these days. While it might be the best prequel and it has some great duels, lot of the CGI, acting and dialogue is just awful. I feel Prequels have aged just badly. This movie has got popular mostly because of the memes. Quality wise this is just 6th Star Wars movie at best.
Even though I love all Star Wars movies in a different way, this one has to do it for me. From the nonstop action to the raw emotion this movie brings it just can't be beat. In this movie you could see & feel Anakin's struggles as he comes closer & closer to becoming Darth Vader. I don't know about everyone else but I didn't seem to have a huge problem with the acting in this movie. The amount of greatness & emotion it brings overshadows it anyways. This movie starts with Anakin & Obi-Wan being best friends to them being mortal enemies at the end, & I feel it did a perfect job of filling in everything in between. For me, this movie should be number one because even though Empire Strikes Back is great, I just feel it gets boring & repetitive at times. I also feel that Obi-Wan's words to the burning, fallen Anakin were way more emotional than "I am your father". Overall, this movie to me was perfection & set up A New Hope perfectly.
I like how dark this movie is, and for the first time since empire, the villains win. people hate on the acting, but its not the acting, it's the script. the fights are amazing, and the characters are great. the opening scene is the best in star wars, and the entire last half of the movie some of the best star wars media ever.
Star Wars is the greatest Saga of all time and most popular, and this is the greatest of all star wars movies! How can you forget the final and opening scene. The most anticipated unmasking of Darth Vader. Who finally turned good. I like how they edited it, when the new ones came out. Before they had another man to be Anakin's soul at the end. But they edited it to make Hayden Christensen, that was so good. The mastermind of George Lucas is amazing, I think he became the richest man in hollywood or something after this, 20th century thought George Lucas was crazy when he wanted to make the Star Wars franchise, now it is one of the most loved of all.
How this is below Revenge of the Sith astounds me. The third act alone puts everything the prequels had done to shame. This movie was a satisfying conclusion to the greatest movie trilogy of all time. Each character's arc was brought to a satisfying end. Yes I know that the people are annoyed by the Ewoks, but they actually did something unlike the Gungans. The confrontation between Luke, Vader, and the Emperor is one of the most dramatic and suspenseful scenes in movie history. The movie has you one the edge of your seat and has you biting your nails as you hope the characters you come to love make it out alive at the end of the story. Overall this may be the weakest out of the trilogy due to plot points in the previous film being glossed over quickly, but it still is a fantastic film.
This is by far the best of the originals. The Empire Strikes Back is overrated (it's not bad, it's just not really that great either), and honestly A New Hope is kinda boring. This, however, is just a good movie.
This one is the best movie, it starts out with the rancor and the sarlacc, two of the coolest monsters in movies, has awesome scenes like the speeder chase, and then ends with three different climaxes with Han Solo and Leigh (and the ewoks) destroying the shield generator, lando leading the rebel fleet to destroy the Death Star, and Luke fighting vader, not as a weakling, but as an EQUAL. You finally get to see Luke in his prime as a Jedi with a badass lightsaber, fight and kill the emperor and withstand the ultimate test as a Jedi. It's way more exciting than the other two original trilogy films, and better than most other films period
Star Wars - Possibly the most iconic and well-known movies of all time. A+
The Empire Strikes Back - A great improvement over the original, but I have a special spot for Episode IV, so I can't decide which one I like better. A+
Return of the Jedi - Not as great as the first two, but still a well-made and exciting movie. A-
Phantom Menace - Bad script and no character development, but good action sequences. C-
Attack of the Clones - A slight improvement over Episode I, but I can't remember about this movie. C
Revenge of the Sith - Great lightsaber battles and an improvement in script and characters, but it didn't reach the heights of the original. B
I don't know why but I find this movie to be the most entertaining and rewatchable one in the series. The epic opening scene, Desert planet scenes, Cantonna scene, Saving liea, Death Star space battle etc -The movie is quite fast paced from the start and you are in for a non-stop adventure. It looks amazing still after so many years. Only Obi Wan vs Vader scene looks poor because it looks clunky and slow in modern era. Otherwise I'll find this movie flawless. My personal favourite in the series.
This is my favourite Star Wars movie. Most people like Empire the most but this movie was more entertaining in my opinion. It had the right amount of action, humour and drama and is relatively fast paced. I can re-watch this movie anytime but still not get bored. Moreover this is the star wars movie that kickstarted the greatest franchise of all time. I think this movie deserves the same credit as that of Empire.
I mean, this is probably better than Episode V, in my opinion.
But at least this has to be above Episode III, I mean, this is a classic. One of my favorite movies of all time, this is the movie that started it all, without this there would be no V, VI, I, II, or III. Maybe even Indiana Jones wouldn't exist.
And all the books, the entire EU, amazing books such as the Thrawn Trilogy, like what I'm reading right now, or the Darth Bane books, the X-Wing books, The Clone Wars.
There wouldn't be the Star Trek movies! TMP, TWOK (one of my favorite movies), TSFS, The Voyage Home, The Final Frontier, TUC, Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis...
TNG, my favorite T.V. show, might be released earlier, and maybe with different actors! Just imagine the cultural impact this has. TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT, all might have different actors or released earlier!
One thing can change everything.
Honestly, I think this movie by itself is better than 4. 4 is kind of boring for a while, and the main character (Luke) is just a whiny teenager. However, in spite of the fact that this movie is individually better, that still doesn't excuse the lack of creativity in making it EXACTLY THE SAME. Also, it seems like they had something against making Kylo Ren as cool as he could have been. I mean, he's awesome with his mask on and hood up. So what do they do? Have him leave his hood down most of the time, and take his mask off eventually! So he has a great "bad guy" personality? Make him throw temper tantrums like a spoiled five-year-old, but with a lightsaber! *Sigh*...
This film was a complete trash. It is a disgrace to see at rank 5. Easily the worst of the Star Wars series. The Original trilogy and the Prequels were way better. Even Rogue One was better than this overhyped trash. This movie had a ton of problems even more than the problems of the first 6 films combined. Terrible acting (especially Kylo Ren), too many dumb scenes with a huge chunk of plot holes, Superpowered Disney Princess Rey, Crappy soundtrack, Killing off Hans Solo, and it was a stupid rehash of the original thus lacking creativity and originality. Among the series, this film is a waste and he most forgettable. Apart from the visual effects there is nothing great about this terrible film. The most overhyped trash ever made.
This movie was a fun ride, but its not a sequel; it's a remake of Episode 4 disguised as a sequel.
This movie is not original, unpredictable or truly revolutionary in terms of movie like the originals were. Its simply Episode 4 with a new coat of paint, like how every Call of Duty game is.
What really grinds my gears is how everyone thinks this is the best Star Wars movie ever as if the originals never happened, even though this movie doesn't even come close to what the originals accomplished.
Still a good movie, but over-rated, and nowhere even close to a true sequel or a cinema masterpiece.
The first in the Star Wars franchise not helmed by George Lucas, Star Wars: The Force Awakens manages to maintain a balance of emotions between an ensemble cast, a combination of cast from the original trilogy and newcomers of the current sequel trilogy. It's a classic telling of a Star Wars adventure, devoid of Gungans, Ewoks, flat dialogue, and an overabundance of inferior CGI. Director J.J. Abrams employs a story you are familiar with insofar as the theme elements, but shows us a few new tricks with storytelling that we haven't seen before in this galaxy far far away.
Force is not one for those who expects a constant continuity of plot, as there are quite a few plot gaps with this film taking place three decades after the conclusion of Return of the Jedi, but is rather an emotional powerhouse that rises above any shortcomings. Any plot hole or slow-moving portion of this movie is overcome by its ultimate outcome.
The Force Awakens is a cinematic adventure that FEELS ...more
Not a bad movie. It isn't really good, however, until the end when they actually attempt to retrieve the plans. I absolutely love the concept, though, and I don't think they could have done much better.
This is a great movie, up there with the best. I loved VII, but this has it beat because it's not too similar to the originals, it's not as predictable, and it's more mature and gritty. It shows the hardships and sacrifices of war, and that not everyone will make it out okay. Vader was used brilliantly, he wasn't used too much but his scenes were epic. Character development could've been better but I enjoyed each of them and was sad to see them die. K2, and Jyn were the saddest deaths in my opinion, but they were moving. It showed how willing they were to put everything on the line to fight against the Empire. Overall it was an amazing movie and will forever be one of my favorites in the Star Wars franchise.
This is the most polished movie ever made for star wars. The plot is great, the character development impressive, acting flawless, the visuals impressive (they put a lot of effort in here, it visually works quite well with the originals), and the dialogue isn't awkward, which is rare for a star wars film. It also has the intangibles: emotion, a message, and effective humor. Episode IV is still my favorite, but this is a close second because there's simply nothing to not like. It's just a perfectly crafted film.
This is a great entry into the Star Wars saga. It has an original Story line (cough cough force awakens new hope), Good Animation and some entertaining and fresh characters. Very Emotional and fits in with the timeline perfectly. The final battle was amazing with us finally seeing rebel ground troops in action on the big screen along with a stunning space battle. And we aren't overloaded with jedi
I realize that this is an unpopular opinion, but this is my favorite out of all the Star Wars movies. Why, you ask? Reason one: Darth Maul. Reason two: unlike most people, I like the political side of the prequels (I mean, it's Star WARS. Wars are inherently political). Reason three: Jar Jar didn't really bother me personally. I understand how some people found him annoying, but I do think people exaggerate a little bit.
Something I don't think I lot of people seem to realize (in my opinion at least) is that the prequels are honestly what made Star Wars..., well, Star Wars. The great lightsaber duels, the new and awesome planets (not that the originals didn't have them either, but the prequels had more), the foundation of the clone armies, the young Obi-Wan, and more characters like Jango Fett, Grievous, Maul. This movie plus its two sequels are what amde Star Wars so iconic honestly in my opinion.
This is why I respect the prequels just as much as the originals. The prequels just certainly aren't that bad. Every one of the prequels do have some really amazing and awesome scenes, even the two most hated ones of the franchise, this and Ep. II. We've all heard of Obi Wan and Qui-Gon vs. Darth Maul, among the greatest Star Wars battles ever. Or the friends on Tatooine. So many iconic places and stuff started with this movie. And the special effects sky-rocketed with this movie. It's impossible to ...more
Underrated genius, especially after watching the other movies. Anakin WAS the chosen one. Qui-Gon is my favourite character, and I don't mind Jar Jar
If I'm being honest, I'm shocked at how HIGH this movie is on the list! #6?!? I expected it to be like, second to last! I am pleasantly surprised! Growing up, this was by FAR my favorite Star Wars episode. And honestly, I cannot for the life of me understand why everyone complains about it so much. It is so integral to the plot of the original trilogy and shows us a world that knew the Jedi when they were in their prime. So many fantastic, well choreographed lightsaber duels, amazingly beautiful scores (duel of the fates, anyone?) great backstory, and a plot that on the surface can seem boring but is actually very complex and vital to the continuation of the trilogy. Unlike the new sequel trilogy movies that literally feel like a hodge-lodge mess of forty different fan fiction writers, the original trilogy, and the Phantom Menace, are certainly more consistent with the story of episodes 4-6, and have an overall story and character arc for the majority of the characters. Also, pod ...more
I love this movie so much, it's criminally underrated and overhated. Not only for the beautiful love theme Across the Stars, which captures all the emotions and feelings of Anakin and Padme's important love affair, and what toll that will take for the Galaxy, but also the most badass bounty hunter Jango Fett, one of my favorite characters! This movie is so important, since it gives us the background for the Clone Wars which Obi Wan mentioned in A New Hope.
One of the most wrongfully despised Star Wars movies in my opinion. People only remember and think of the romance when this movie comes to their mind and act like everything else was crap as well in this movie which is not the case, and even then, the romance had a purpose (unlike a certain Finn x Rose Tico in Ep. 8). While Obi Wan and Anakin vs. Count Dooku isn't nearly as entertaining and the final battle with Maul, there are so many amazing parts of this movie as well.
Let me introduce you to Jango Fett, perhaps the greatest Star Wars character ever made. I smiled every time he was on screen. Not only does he look badass with that armour and his battle scenes are amazing, but he is essentially the reason behind everything in the original trilogy. He created the clone army, which the sith lords took advantage of and so the galactic empire was born. I mean this is certainly not a bad movie at all.
The worst out of the prequels. In George Lucas' defense, having Anakin and Padme fall in love in such a short time frame is kind of impossible. However, that can't excuse how incredibly cringey every single line they spoke to each other was!
So underrated, has some amazing action scenes, and is one of the most important films in the saga. Everything that happens after this happens because of the events in this movie. Sure there are some cheesy "emotional" scenes and the acting is sub-par but... the acting is of low quality in the ENTIRE SERIES! The Originals vs Prequels debate will go on forever. The points people make against the prequels are usually valid in the originals as well but nostalgia clouds their vision. All 6 movies are great and 2 is the underdog and the best of them all.
Easily the worst of the main 9 movies. I especially hated the whole disable-the-tracker plotline that took up so much time and had NO RELEVANCE TO THE PLOT WHATSOEVER. There just happened to be another plan that worked perfectly but about which the crew was never told... ugh. The only really good thing I have to say about this movie and The Force Awakens is that the battle scenes and special effects are great. However, this doesn't apply to the Empire Strikes Back-esque attack scene at the end of this movie. Where other battle scenes were full of epic explosions, this scene was just puffs of red powder. At least this wasn't as bad as Solo.
This movie changed Star Wars. First off, Luke. In return of the Jedi, we saw Luke change from a whiny kid to a Jedi, a Jedi who saw the good in Darth Vader. In the last Jedi we see a guy who runs away and hides on an island and complains about his life. He was going to kill his nephew cause he saw bad in him, but wasn't return of the Jedi all about seeing the good? And how Luke changed to see the good in people? So In the last Jedi Luke went back to being that "whiny kid". Also Leia can fly in space, and the whole plot of the movie was dumb and nothing even happened. Oh except that they freed the animals and left the children slaves but that's ok cause according to Rose "it was worth it" even though their friends in space are dying. So...I just pretend this movie doesn't exist and jump from 7 to 9. The only good part in this movie was when Rey and Kylo teamed up...yep that's about it.
This film doesn't deserve the level of hate it gets, but it does struggle with message and direction. For instance, I thought the actor of Rose did fine and have no problem with the character. Yet how they wrote the character in was poor writing and what they have her say and do conflicts with other things they show and do (e.g. a film that from beginning to end is about sacrifice and not giving in is ruined by her in one line saying that that's not what they're supposed to do. It doesn't work).
So is this the worst star wars film ever? No. I actually really appreciated their attempt to be unique and change direction for the franchise. If executed properly, it would be just what we needed. But the execution was quite imperfect.
This is a great movie. What I really like about this movie is how they take a lot of risks to surprise the viewer. While people complain that they ruined Luke's character, I thought that what they made to him was a great idea, because it gave me a new way to look at the character that makes him interest. I think it's better than the Gary Stu the fans wanted him to become. Also, I'm sorry but Ray isn't a Mary Sue because she does make errors sometimes, and Rose is a great character. Now, let's hope that Rise of the Skywalker will be at least a good movie to finish that very good trilogy. And let's hope they will not reveal that Ray is a Skywalker just because the fans complained that revealing she is the child of no one important was a disapointment, because that would be stupid and I hope that it's not the reason why the movie is call the rise of skywalker. Seriously, which skywalker is rising? I thought Luke was dead.
This is the only one of the sequels that was actually a good movie. It was very predictable, but a lot of those moments seemed like fun tributes to the rest of the series, as opposed to uncreative plot recycling. It certainly wasn't flawless, but its biggest flaw was really just that 8 was so bad. 8 was just kind of terrible, and then BAM! The grand finale of all Star Wars! If 8 had been better and built some tension leading up to this movie, it would have been a lot better.
I feel this movie is the worst in the series. They tried to correct the mistakes of the previous one instead of being original. And the overall product as usual ended up being terrible. The only good part of the new trilogy was Kylo Ren. I didn't like any of these new Disney movies and is even worse than the prequels. At least the prequels were creative and original. I have now lost interest in Star Wars because I am tired of being disappointed again and again. The last truly good Star Wars movie for me was The Return of the Jedi and I wish it ended here. They were big part of my childhood. These new movies has ruined my experience of the Original trilogy. I now regret watching these Disney movies.
Lots of people don't like it, but it's my favourite of the new trilogy. It's pretty cool, even if some plot devices don't work. You know I MUST think this movie is good, because I'm a prequel fan going out of his way to vote for a sequel movie.
This movie was pretty emotional and exiting for me. Yes it had flaws, the characters are hard to understand compared to the original trilogy characters and the prequel characters, but once you look into them and see their story, you will enjoy this movie a lot more. If you liked Ben the most out of the sequel trilogy, I think you will mostly like this movie. That is, if you can except the flaws.
This movie was nothing special, but there's really not much to not like either. People are just being nitpicky, which is a big no-no for any star wars film. There's no way any film will satisfy fans who insist on having things their way and don't let writers attempt to write. Does it matter where Solo got his last name? No. So if it doesn't matter than why care if or how they explain it. It changes nothing.
Also, Alden Ehrenreich did a great job. He was able to capture what a younger Han Solo would be like incredibly, and didn't try to simply copy Harrison Ford. People evolve over time, and I absolutely believe that Ehrenreich's character could evolve into Ford's, which is no easy feat.
THE BEST non-original Star Wars movie. I just loved it. It filled me with nostalgia from when I was 6 (now I'm 14) and my dad dug his old Star Wars tapes out of the attic and I watched A New Hope for the first time. Definitely the first one which I can really see a good use of the new cgi.
Very underrated, should be higher than Ewoks -_-
Don't know, but Lady Proxima seems like such a familiar name...
Not my favorite, but really isn't that bad.
That Maul cameo though.
And that "I hate you, I know" scene, the Kessel Run, really a decent movie, not that bad, but not the best movie ever.
Like a 75/100 kind of movie, maybe 80/100.
It triggers me that this is below the fake "Star Wars Han Solo: A Star Wars Story" item. This here is the real thing with the real name and with the poster.
Star Wars Clone Wars reveals the utter triumph and potential of Star Wars. Let's admit it: the first two- Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, sucked. The third was okay, but Anakin was a whiner. The fourth had Luke as whiny hero, and Obi-Wan lets himself get killed.
The fifth and sixth do almost defeat this one. They are the peak of George Lucas's career. The seventh, though it hasn't come out yet, also sounds good.
Star Wars Clone Wars has many memorable new characters, such as Ahsoka Tano, Cad Bane, Lux Bonterri, and Duchess Satine. The villains Darth Maul, Savage Opress, Palpatine, and Asajj Ventriss are amazing. Also, lesser known characters, such as Kit Fisto (a personal favorite) have their own episodes.
The clones, such as Captain Rex, are given character, and when they die, you feel sad.
This series also reveals the brilliance of Palpatine's plot, revealing each little step to becoming the Emperor. And in each season, Anakin gets darker. He is amazing- not a ...more
This one isn't my favorite, but it got me into binging the show. It's way more enjoyable then the prequel live action movies, and I really like Ahsoka.
I really liked the clone wars movie and the clone wars T.V. series It was so call that Darth maul was in it and the death watch gang also Darth sidious I have whached every episode the graphics are awesome and
It was better than a lot of T.V. shows we have now, and it is still the best Star Wars T.V. spin off to this day.
This is the only star wars movie I do not have a problem with 10/10
Here is my ranking of the star wars movies
12. Star wars the clone wars (movie)
11. Attack of the clones
10. The Last Jedi
8. Revenge of the Sith
7. The phantom menace
6. The Rise of Skywalker
5. The force awakens
4. Rogue one
3. Return of the jedi
2.The Empire strikes back
1. A New Hope
The reason I am voting for this is to say that it is called Star Wars : A New hope not Star Wars
Definitely the best thing to come from Star Wars. Wicket is my favourite character in all of Star Wars and learning new stuff about Ewoks is just great. Honestly hope we get more stuff like this, I would think a Gungan version of this would be definitively the greatest movie ever to be made.
A lot of people don't like this movie, but it was actually the first Star Wars movie I've ever seen. I watched it when I was really young, and loved it! I still love it to this day, and will always be one of the most underrated movies.
Why is Ewok movies in this list? I have not seen it but I heard from rotten tomatoes it's a bad movie
For me - the best Star Wars movie out there!
It's actually a really funny parody that I recommend watching. It's better than all three sequels combined, that's for sure.
Greatest star wars movie ever made, and I've never even seen it.
This little film is absolutely hilarious! Watch it!
Haha! This short film is hilarious.
I don't believe this will be released, and plus there is no information in the imternet about this film, people keep messing up top tens com. By putting random movies.
It's not really a movie but still, it's the reason why I watch the show. and the animation is top quality, probably the best there is
I thought this was a movie. But I've seen some of the epoxies on T.V.
It was a movie length episode of Star Wars Rebels.
Best movie in all of anime.
R2-D2 is much stronger than Goku
He's faster the the Flash
He can break the 4th wall like Deadpool
He can make Shadow Clone Jutsu, some how,
He has the rinnesharingan.
He can even go to Gear 4th like luffy, and Gomu Gomu No Shock
He can beat Superman in one punch like One Punch-D2
I don't even know most of these only the new one, the other sequels, the Cartoon Network T.V. series, the originals, and the prequels.
My childhood growing up, I remembar when we used to gather around every xmas to watch this movie. don't really like the episodes I-VIII that much as they don't have that good of a story. Holday special on the other hand is phenomenal
I laughed so hard. This is the worst thing to happen to Star Wars, even more than Jar Jar Binks.
Watch this on Youtube, start at 28 minutes into it, you'll be very very surprised. Eh he he.
Still better than Rise of Skywalker. Though that's not saying anything.
I only watch movies with plastic protagonists, so Thisbe LEGO movie is great for me!
Terrible spinoff of a movie that already is pretty bad.
You have got to be kidding me.
Legendary. How is this last?
