An Unbiased Star Wars Ranking

So, I finally saw "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and I absolutely loved it. I really don't know much about what other people think of the movie because I just don't ask. I try my very best to go in to any "Star Wars" movie with no prior knowledge or opinions on anything. That is sometimes quite a task because I absolutely hate crowded movie theaters so I never see the movie when it first comes out. The first thought I had when the movie ended was that this movie was probably in my top 3 of "Star Wars" movies. When someone asked me about it I decided to go with top 5 because I wanted to wait and put some more thought into it before I officially ranked it. After more thought this is what I came up with.

  1. Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode 4)
  2. The Empire Strikes Back (Episode 5)
  3. The Last Jedi (Episode 8)
  4. Rogue One
  5. The Phantom Menace (Episode 1)
  6. Return of the Jedi (Episode 6)
  7. Revenge of the Sith (Episode 3)
  8. The Force Awakens (Episode 7)
  9. Attack of the Clones (Episode 2)

Now, keep in mind that my perspective of these movies is different than many people. I just watched Episodes 1 thru 6 two years ago. I had seen bits and pieces of the original "Star Wars" trilogy when I was younger, but I didn't sit down and watch each one from beginning to end until recently. Also, because of my age I missed the whole Star Wars fandom and so did my friends. I literally never heard any of my friends or family talk about "Star Wars" or even mention that the movies were a must see. If someone did mention it and I'm just forgetting that just tells you that I wasn't paying them any attention because I just didn't have the interest. I was always fully aware of "Star Wars" and that it was a very famous trilogy, but my awareness stopped there. With that being said, I walked into the "Star Wars" movie binge two years ago completely unbiased and ended up loving the movies.

I'm well aware that hard core "Star Wars" fans have a pretty strong opinion about the ranking of these movies so let the debate begin!
