My rankings have changed too.

Skywalker Saga:

The Phantom Menace
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
Attack of the Clones
Revenge of the Sith
A New Hope
The Last Jedi
The Rise of Skywalker
The Force Awakens

Spinoffs:

Rogue One
Solo

TV Series:

The Clone Wars
Rebels

Attack of the Clones has become one of my favourite films in the series. It’s not perfect by any stretch but every time I watch it I discover new layers. I also enjoy the slower and meditative pacing as it gives you lots of time to reflect and absorb the atmosphere.

I’m also leaning The Rise of Skywalker slightly over The Force Awakens. I think The Force Awakens is better made but I find myself enjoying more scenes in The Rise of Skywalker, namely the Aki Aki Festival with the children and puppet show and the training montages. Context aside these things are pretty fun to watch.

I hope one day soon I’ll feel less cynical about Disney Star Wars. I miss being engaged but it’s so different from George’s Star Wars that it just doesn’t have the same feel and desire to tell stories but instead seems like nostalgic tales. I think it’s why I’m cautiously optimistic about Visions. It feels like it could be more.
