The Machete Order Revised

Author

With all films form sequel trilogy now available to the public, would you make any modifications to the Machete Order? Or would you just add them inorder after RotJ? Discuss…

Frylock: Did you even read the training manual?
Shake: The only thing I read are the zeroes on my paycheck.

At this point, going movie-only, I’m a fan of this order for a full marathon:

  1. TPM
  2. AOTC
  3. ROTS
  4. Rogue One
  5. ANH
  6. ESB
  7. ROTJ
  8. Solo
  9. TFA
  10. TLJ
  11. TROS

For a first time viewer, though, I’d always advocate for going release order and leaving the spinoff movies for after the saga.

Oh that’s interesting, like a Binge Watch Order.

Yeah, I actually really like using the spinoffs to buffer the trilogies, and Solo before TFA works surprisingly well.

 (Edited)

1.Original Trilogy
-Star Wars 1977
-The Empire Strikes Back
-Return of the Jedi

2.Sequel Trilogy
-The Force Awakens
-The Last Jedi
-The Rise of Skywalker

3.”Flashback” Trilogy
-Revenge of the Sith
-Solo
-Rogue One

Bookending with Star Wars 1977 and Rogue One is essential, imo.

EDIT: is there a reason why this thread was moved to the EU section? I feel like it’d fit better in the Beyond The OT section, but that’s just me.

this one is interesting , I may try this on my next marathon viewing …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dV3mdMJJsPk The video’s description-Release Order, Chronological Order, Machete Order, everyone has an opinion about the best order for watching the Star Wars movies. I have a new order to recommend: the Spoiler Order, one that preserves the famous “twists” of the franchise for longer than either the Release Order or the Machete Order.

This video discusses those spoilers, so if you don’t want to listen to spoilers, here’s the Order:

Episode I, The Phantom Menace
Episode IV, A New Hope
Episode II, Attack of the Clones
Episode V, Empire Strikes Back
Episode III, Revenge of the Sith
Episode VI, Return of the Jedi

After watching in that order, you can watch the other movies in whatever order you like. I also talk for a little bit at the end about why Chronological Order is better if you don’t care about spoilers.

I am curious to hear others opinions on this…

Would certainly be interesting to try it. Would also break up the prequels. Too bad the ST would throw off the symmetry.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
