Poll: Favorite Star Wars Movie

Which one did you find most entertaining? I like Return of the Jedi. Maybe it's the triumphant ending. Maybe it's the coolness of Luke at the sarac pit. It's the one I could watch over and over again and not get tired of it. You?

Return of the Jedi. Just cuz I loved Han's face when Leia kissed him near the end...that shocked look into the camera.

defenitely Empire, best movie by far
I held my breath for three (3) years to see if Han Solo lived or died, so Jedi was great for me. Loved it. But in hindsight Empire was the best without a doubt.

The new movies are good, just saw Clones last night, but not as good. The special effects are far better now, but the story and characters fall way short. But I will say that Darth Maul was the best villian of all the movies.

Don't make me choose... it's like choosing a favorite U2 album.. I can't do it. But if I had to, it would be either ESB or ROTJ. Empire because it's dark and the ending is great and ROTJ because of how confident Luke comes back... I could continue for hours, but I'll spare you and I'll stop rambling now...

People rip on the two new installments of "Star Wars", but for me, the shredding should have began with "Return of the Jedi." I'm *more* than old enough to have seen all of the originals in the theaters (and I did - saw "Star Wars" 3x, which was unreal back then). When my friends and I left "Return of the Jedi" we called it "Return of the Muppets." The film was WAY to cute and happy and truly stood out as a children's film, as compared to the earlier films. To this day, 'Return... " is my least favorite.

Here are my rankings:
  1. Empire Strikes Back
  2. A New Hope
  3. Attack of the Clones
  4. The Phantom Menace
  5. Return of the Jedi

Yes, that's right, I like the bumbling annoying Jar Jar and the horrible child actor Jake Lloyd *more* than I liked the banal muppets and the somewhat anti-climatic ending in "Return...".

Return Of the Jedi, closely followed by the empire strike back and Star Wars. The original three were so good....

Looks like Sicy and Rodes are allergic to Science Fiction or simply do not like by far the most popular set of movies in history. Overall they are great stories, despite the weaker new serious, even without the special effects. They draw on many cultural and religious backgrounds in the movies from human history and combine them with Georges imagination. What a galaxy George has created. I hear there is going to be a 4th Indiana Jones movie, another great series as well that George writes the story for. The members of U2 especially the Edge are big fans of Star Wars as well.

Return of the Jedi and Star Wars are tied for me, I like Jedi a little more. I don't like the Ewok stuff though. It really drags the movie down IMO. I think I know why they did it though: I went to see it 7 times at the theater when it was new, a couple of those times with my young neice and nephews who weren't really following the intense storyline and got bored quickly, asking to go to the bathroom when they didn't have to go just to play with the soap dispenser. Then the Ewoks came on and those kids (ages 2, 4, 5, and 6) became glued to the screen and laughed and bounced up and down. The kids settled down, regained interest and enjoyed the rest of the movie (some screamed and cried when Luke was being electrocuted by the emperor though) The silly Ewoks served their purpose and were really strategically placed. They're still more tolerable than Jar Jar Binks too!
