Great thread to discuss it. I find it really interesting how ROTS has become more and more popular over the years, and I regularly see people acting like it’s hands-down the best Star Wars film. It’s such a contrast to even a few years ago.
I’ve been saying it’s one of if not the best for as long as I can remember. People used to laugh at me, now they laugh with me.
In pretty much every fan community (except possibly here), Quite a few people consider the movie to be one of their favorites
You can cross out those parentheses.
At least until a couple years ago most people here would tell you ROTS is either dead last or second to last in a “Best To Worst” list
No, it’s always been widely (albeit not universally) considered the best of the Prequels.
I think both TPM and ROTS get bad reps for being connected to the shitstorm that is AOTC.
I agree that AotC is miles worse than the other two.
What makes ROTS worse for me is that it’s “good” mainly for events that would have happened regardless of the movie they were delivered in.
Those events are a big part of what makes it great for me, regardless how well they handle them.
Prequel fans are taking the criticisms that fans of the Originals heaped upon the Prequels and passing those same complaints along to the Sequels.
The criticisms are completely different, though. It’s like the OT got split Dark Crystal style between the PT and ST and each one got half of its strengths and half of its weaknesses.
