Forgot to include The Clone Wars movie
  1. The Empire Strikes Back- A no-brainer. The best made of the original trilogy. It’s a near perfect film.
  2. Star Wars and Return of the Jedi- I go back and forth on which one I like more. Star Wars has better action and humor, Return of the Jedi has the better emotional moments. I also have more nostalgia for Return of the Jedi, so sometimes that wins me over when I rewatch it.
  3. Revenge of the Sith- The best of the prequels. I think the story is more investing than in the other two and it’s better paced. There are some corny parts, though.
  4. Rogue One- Found it boring the first few times I watched it, but it grew on me on the last rewatch. Probably because I watched Andor beforehand.
  5. Solo- A lot of people don’t like it, but I thought it was a fun side adventure. My problem with it though is that even though I’ve seen it multiple times, parts of it are forgettable.
  6. Attack of the Clones- Of the prequels, this is actually the one I have the most nostalgia for. Has a lot of fun action scenes, but also some boring and dumb parts. I do have a soft spot for it, but I will acknowledge that it’s not a very good movie.
  7. The Phantom Menace- It’s a slog to get through parts of it. Feels too self-contained. Has some good parts, but doesn’t hold together as a narrative and especially not as an introduction to the galaxy.
  8. The Force Awakens- Used to really like it, but it didn’t hold up on rewatches. A lot of stuff that got set up and never paid off. Whenever I try to rewatch it, I get bored around the halfway point.
  9. The Last Jedi- First impressions can be so inaccurate. I loved this when I first saw it, but wow did it not hold up to scrutiny. I’ll give it this, it did try to change things up. There’s parts I like, but the bad parts are so bad that they ruin the movie.
  10. Rise of Skywalker- A joyless lazy mess. Almost killed my passion for the series. It was so bad that I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to rewatch the older movies.
  11. The Clone Wars movie (Forgot to include it in here)- Bad animation, bad story. I’ve only seen it twice and that’s two times too many. Put me off watching the show for years.
