And here we are again, my good friend. The only ranking of the Star Wars franchise you’ll ever need, because it’s definitive.

And it’s a top 11! Not like those crappy top 10s. They suck. Glad I waited for the new movie.

  1. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

“It’s amazing to think that Lucas could have addressed some of the largest issues with the first prequel head on, but still managed to somehow make a worse movie overall.”

“Overall, though, the movie’s a mess. Yes, it has some ambition, but its author fails at achieving that ambition on a massively public scale.”

  1. Solo: A Star Wars Story

“This feels more like several episodes of television stitched together rather than a single movie, and I think it suffers greatly for it.”

  1. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

“Overall though, the movie is a victim of its structure designed to hide who its main character is as well as provide a quick remake of Star Wars and the need to prominently feature Han Solo. It almost overcomes its issues, but not quite.”

“Oh well, it’s a bit of a downer to revisit a childhood favorite and discover it’s not as good as it was when I was a kid, but it happens.”

  1. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

“The central villain is great. The movie looks good, and it ends with a very good final sustained sequence. Not great, but a solid entertainment.”

“The movie’s good. It’s big, spilling over the sides, but it’s heart is clear. It intelligently synthesizes the previous two films into a rousing and interesting conclusion. Count me as a fan.”

  1. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Episode III is easily the strongest of the prequels and the best Star Wars movie since The Empire Strikes Back.”

  1. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

“It’s fiercely intelligent and penetrative of the meaning of Star Wars. It’s compellingly packaged in characters and drama. It’s really well acted. It’s some of my favorite Star Wars ever.”

  1. Star Wars

“While the movie may be about space wizards and magic, it contains enough universal human touches (as a proxy from Campbell’s narrative theories) while utilizing the filmic craft to its fullest potential. Star Wars is a triumph of popular entertainment. It’s a simple story, well told, with enough on the edges to further excite the imagination.”

  1. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back is a magnificent sequel that takes the characters from the preceding adventure seriously and gives them space to grow, propelling them through an adventure that truly tests them. It very rightly stands atop the world of genre fiction as one of the its greatest accomplishments.”
