I just realised that I haven’t updated my list for a while (my opinion changes a lot), so I’ll do that now.

  1. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  2. A New Hope (1977)
  3. The Force Awakens (2015)
  4. Revenge of the Sith (2005)
  5. Attack of the Clones (2002)
  6. Return of the Jedi (1983)
  7. Rogue One (2016)
  8. The Phantom Menace (1999)
  9. The Clone Wars (2008)

Yeah, I’ll get some flak for four and five, but honestly, I’ve kinda lost all my hate for those ones. I enjoy 'em.

Heh, and here I am being nervous for putting Return Of The Jedi at number 1. Bold.

maybe you are lying to be noticed / stand out?

Actually, I’m not lying to myself when I say that ROTJ is the best, in my opinion. ROTJ always affected my differently from the other two. Even thought ANH, and TESB are amazing movies, I have always leaned towards ROTJ even movie. I don’t know why. It’s always difficult to explain, and it’s frustrating knowing that I can’t see what other people see negatively about the film. Every negative thing that other fans have pointed out is something I don’t have a problem with: the second Death Star, the Ewoks, Boba Fett’s death, Yub Nub, etc. I always thought that the Death Star 2.0 looked more intimidating than the first, because of it’s “unfinished/distorted” look. I love the Ewoks. One of my favorite lessons in Star Wars is to never judge someone or something by size. They are the underdog, which is one of the many things I love about the OT. Boba Fett is cool, but I am not as big of a fan as other people. If I were to picked Empire over Jedi, it would betray everything I stand for when it comes to Star Wars. I made that comment to show that I am not afraid to stand out of what I see as a sort of “standard” in the Star Wars fan community.

However, I feel like I pressured by something, as if I have to know the difference between what is my favorite, and what is the best. ROTJ is my favorite, and I also want to consider it the best. “Best” and “favorite” are still based on opinion. If someone were to say that 2001: A Space Odyssey was the best film of all time, someone else will say that the best is something else (could be any movie). In other words: there-is-no-correct-or-incorrect-answer!

Wait, I don’t rate ROTJ the highest because I’m not honest and just want to be liked?

Lol.

Anyway…

I’m talking about myself. If I were to rank TESB the highest, “I” would be lying to myself, and everyone else. “I” am not going to lie in order to be liked. Everyone else here is most likely honest about their opinions. I have noticed that there are some people who have said ROTJ was their favorite as a kid, but as they got older, TESB became their favorite (as if it’s a requirement).

I for one am a Star Wars fan who doesn’t give a shit about the so called “standards.” Last time I checked, there is absolutely no laws, or regulations on being a Star Wars fan. We are not bound to one way of looking at the films. Heresy my ass.

[Best] 1) Return Of The Jedi 10/10 (That’s right. You read correctly)
2) The Empire Strikes Back 10/10
3) Star Wars (aka A New Hope) 10/10
4) The Force Awakens & Rogue One (a tie) 9/10
5) Revenge Of The Sith 7/10
6) The Phantom Menace 6.5/10
[Worst] 7) Attack Of The Clones 5/10

In, my opinion, the Original Trilogy (specially the Theatrical Cuts) is perfect across the board. All three are amazing. Return Of The Jedi is #1 for me. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars (ANH)!! Each one gets even better than the last, that’s all. It’s a “tryptic” masterpiece.

Nice work, and I especially enjoy the orange colors of “Empire” I would possibly try and make the “despecialized” type easier to read. It bleeds into the background a bit making it a tad difficult to see clearly. Top notch stuff!

cheers.

I might just get rid of the text “Despecialized Edition” on each cover. It kinda takes away from the front cover rather than add. Putting something behind the text to make it pop out more would disrupt the design, not to mention the fact that a drop shadow adds nothing, either. It worked for the titles, but the extra text would probably make the front cover look more crowded.

Update on my current cover project: I made a huge overhaul. I increased the size of the art to fill in the whole front cover. I also added more color to fit the color scheme for each movie. I also gave the titles an off-white color. They’re still not ready, yet, which is why I shrunk the size of the pictures below. There are still areas I need to fix, especially when it comes to centering everything properly:

I might make these double-sided.

^ Edit: I will NOT be making a slipcase. There was no slipcase when I had the Unaltered Trilogy on VHS, and the same will go to these covers.

But wasn’t the VHS packaging essentially just a slipcase?

What I actually meant was something like a box set. One CBS/FOX release had an available box set (At least I think this was CBS/FOX):

I had these a long time ago, which didn’t come in a box set:

Here’s a small tease of what I’m currently working on (it’s not ready yet):

set

As you can see, I’m giving my covers a throwback look. They are inspired by the old CBS/FOX VHS tapes I had during my early childhood. I don’t want them to be exact copies. I used the color scheme as a reference, and lowered the saturation of the pictures. I also made an off-white color. This makes the covers look older, as if they have aged and faded over time.

Oh neat! That does give those cases a nice visual flare to them. I like the work you’ve put out skywalkerfan101, keep up the good work! 😃

Thanks. The pictures represent an ordinary 12.5 mm Blu Ray case, but I’m changing them for Criterion cases. They would go perfectly with them.
