The Definitive Ranking Of "Star Wars" Films

You decide which film the force is strongest with.

Posted on

6. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Lucasfilm

Best part: The scenes that featured Palpatine’s rise to power.

Worst part: All of the scenes that take place on Geonosis (sans Yoda’s fight scene). Also, the B-movie sounding title could've been stronger.

5. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Lucasfilm

Best part: The final intense duel between badass Sith Lord, Darth Maul, and, Jedi’s Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn. And it was all set to a pretty epic score.

Worst part: The introduction of Jar Jar Binks, who is arguably the worst thing about the entire film.

4. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Lucasfilm

Best part: The final 20 minutes of the film; which are the only scenes from all three prequels that felt connected to the original trilogy.

Worst part: The cheesy dialogue, stiff-acting, and nonexistent chemistry between Anakin and Padmé.

2. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

Lucafilm

Best part: Duh, it's the first Star Wars, thus the introduction to all of our favorite characters.

Worst part: When Obi-Wan dies, because he was kick-ass and would only return in ghost form. Close second is Luke and Leia's kiss due to the ick factor.

1. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Lucasfilm

Best part: The entire last part of the film, from Han being frozen in carbonite to Luke finding out that Darth Vader is his father.

Worst part: That it set the bar too high for the rest of the films.
