Honestly, Return of the Jedi is my favorite film in the entire trilogy. The second part of the last fight where Luke gives into his rage and proceeds to curbstomp Vader is epic.

Ewoks can suck it, though.

This is how i rank the series
Episode 3: I loved it my favorite of the prequels and the whole saga amd it has my favorite character of star wars General Grevious!
Episode 2: yeah the romance sucks but the fight scenes are cool.
Episode 5: I liked this one a whole lot with its storyline and and the stopmotion for the hoth battle scenes.
Episode 6: I did like the music for the final battle and the battle itself and its always seeing ewoks die :twisted:
Episode 1: I though this one okay hated jar jar binks and the battles were okay
Episode 4: Ok go ahead and sue me and kill me, the reasons why this is my least favorite is because i thought it was kinda slow but i regonize its work and without it the whole star wars universe had never been made i don't hate it would most likely be tied with one.
52 wins and 27 loses

Han is the only one who shot.

I like Star Wars, but I'm not INSANE about it like some people. I do prefer the original trilogy to the prequels, however, I think Revenge Of The Sith ranks up there with the originals. That's just me though.

I like the series. It's fun, it's iconic, and it's just good entertainment. What more can you ask for?

Star Wars - Classic, influential, memorable 70's summer blockbuster.
Holiday Special - Quite awful; it feels like a taste of things to come.
The Empire Strikes Back - This is how you do a sequel, folks. Superb.
Return of the Jedi - Other than the Luke/Vader/Emperor stuff, rather lousy.
Ewok Movies - An endurance test. Completely pointless TV movies.
The Phantom Menace - Somewhat misguided, but not completely terrible.
Attack of the Clones - Great Obi-Wan story, grating love story. Mixed bag.
Revenge of the Sith - Unintentionally funny, but another major disappointment.
Clone Wars - Maybe if this material were covered in live-action, I would care...

Ranking: TESB-SW-AOTC-TPM-ROTJ-ROTS-CW-HS-TEA/EBFE

They're all entertaining, but I do like 6,1, and 3 best. Revenge of the Sith is very good.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

I'm a fanboy of the whole series. I enjoy all the movies in some way, and yes I am a rather large fan of The Clone Wars. Star Wars honestly gets a little too much hate. Sure it may not be perfect, and its riddled with studio meddling, its just fun to take them as they are.

The prequels sucked big time when compared with the originals, what a disappointment. However I"ll admit that episode 3 was much better than ep1 and ep2.

The original trilogy is epic. Empire is the best of them I think. The best science fiction films ever made, probably, although Alien and Aliens, along with Blade Runner are just as good IMHO.

I actually really enjoyed seeing him be killed off by Sy Snootles this season. I have to say though, people unfairly judge this series based on the film. It has really improved, and some of the characters they've introduced like Hondo and Cad Bane are fantastic.

The Phantom Menace - Enjoyable. Not great, but it's not as bad as people make it out to be.
Attack of the Clones - Pretty dull, really. I don't hate it, but it's definitely the weak point of the film series for me.
Revenge of the Sith - I really enjoy this one. It's my third favorite, under TESB and ANH.
A New Hope - Not my favorite, but it is a pretty important film. It's also pretty good.
The Empire Strikes Back - My favorite of the series. It's also, IMO, the best one.
Return of the Jedi - It's good, but it just doesn't live up to the standards set by ANH and TESB. Ewoks suck.

The Clone Wars (film) - Don't waste your time.
The Clone Wars (series) - Rather enjoyable, IMO.

I never saw the Christmas special and I've never dabbled in any of the EU stuff, so characters introduced in the novels, comics, whatever are completely unknown to me.

I also never understood Boba Fett's extreme popularity.

Gorosaur, your forgetting Embo!

I love Embo, but he has yet to be featured as a recurring character. His character being a tribute to the Seven Samurai does make him worthy of mention on this site though.

Star Wars - Classic, timeless, etc. Not much point in continuing. 4.5/5.
The Empire Strikes Back - One of the best Sci-Fi films of all time. 5/5.
Return of the Jedi - Rather slow, but has a climax that makes up for it. 4/5.
The Phantom Menace - It's largely inconsistent in tone, but otherwise very entertaining. 3.5/5.
Attack of the Clones - Again, a slow film, but with a handful of interesting scenes to back it up. 3/5.
Revenge of the Sith - The lack of real enviroments gives a somewhat artificial vibe to it, but storywise it succeeds. 4/5.

The EU doesn't exist for me.

Very true, though I hope they don't end up following Kyuzo completely. I know you said they decided not to kill him, but still. Also, I can't imagine them keeping him alive just so they could not use him.

The thing is, The Clone Wars scripting process is far ahead of where the fans are at the moment. They probably are just now getting to more Embo after seeing how positively fans reacted to him.

Eff, your right about that, it takes them quite awhile to create episodes and most of them are way behind where they are scripting wise.

A New Hope - An absolute movie classic. Totally mindless fun, and lives up to being called one of the most important movies ever made.
The Empire Strikes Back - Hands down my favorite of the series. The writing, acting, music, and SPFX have yet to be topped. R.I.P. Irvin Kershner
Return of the Jedi - My least favorite of the original trilogy, but it's still extremely entertaining. Ewoks > Gungans.
The Phantom Menace - Not NEARLY as bad as fanboys would have you believe. It does have some craptacular performances, but man it could have been worse...
Attack of the Clones - Speaking of how it could be worse... Terrible writing and acting. It's only saved by the battle on Geonosis.
Revenge of the Sith - Once again bogged down by bad writing, but the atmosphere is sublime and the acting's improved. Plus Ian McDiarmid deserved an Oscar, damn it.
The Clone Wars - Just...just....just so bad. Undeniably terrible on every count.

The Clone Wars (Tartakovsky series) - Bad-ass. General Grievous was so pussified in Episode III.
Ewoks (TV series) - Pretty forgettable, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't look forward to watching it every morning. Mostly for the theme song.
Droids - I don't remember it, to be honest. I remember thinking it was okay.
The Ewok Adventure - Not bad. Great production values for a TV movie, plus a pleasant fantasy vibe.

Never seen Ewoks: The Battle for Endor or The Clone Wars CGI series. And I can safely say I'm the only person on Earth who is looking forward to the 3D conversion of the six films, but knows each one will probably pull in $50 million+ regardless.

Phantom Menace: Liam Neeson ftw. Very mixed bag here. Cut out the Gungan crap, and it probably would've been good. 3/5
Attack of the Clones: Worst of the series. Just plain bad. The end was good fun, but still... 2/5
Revenge of the Sith: One of the best of the series. Watching Anakin complete his transformation into Vader was just... heart-wrenching. 4/5.
A New Hope: Again, not great, but good fun. 3.5/5
Empire Strikes Back: The height of the series. Overall, just plain excellent. It's one of the very, VERY few movies I give this rating to. 5/5.
Return of the Jedi: Very "meh." Bland, mostly forgettable. But at least Luke grew into something of a badass. 3/5.

As for the rest of it? I ignore it completely. The very first Clone Wars series was awesome. Mace vs. Grevious was just awesome. Still, the games, I think, are better than the movies. KOTOR, even the Force Unleashed games.

Agree with on the games. KOTOR is a masterpiece, best peice of Star Wars ever.
