Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is now out in cinemas and I’ve had the great pleasure of setting the movie which means that I can now offer Small Screen’s official Star Wars movies rankings and this list is going to go from worst to best.
It certainly seems as though people have been rather sniffy about Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker (well, certain critics have), but I can tell you know that as far as Star Wars movies are concerned it’s one of the best.
Star Wars has become a hugely important part of my life ever since I watched the first Star Wars film, which I’ve always known as Star Wars: A New Hope, as a kid and I immediately fell in love with the franchise.
I first watched Star Wars on VHS at my grandparents’ house and I remember getting so excited every time we went to see them because I knew I could sit in front of the TV and watch the Star Wars movies.
Ever since then, I’ve been something of a Star Ward addict, reading comic books, novels, watching the TV series, listening to the music, buying some of the toys (I didn’t buy too many toys though). I even dressed up as Luke Skywalker one year for Halloween.
Once a Star Wars fan, always a Star Wars fan
It’s safe to say that Star Wars is my jam, and I love almost every aspect of the franchise, apart from the Christmas special, which is genuinely dreadful.
I remember when I was a kid and getting overly excited when I found out that new Star Wars movies – the prequels – were coming out, and it was always an event going to see one at the cinema, and this is something that’s remained in me to this day.
I love going to the cinema to watch a Star Wars movie, and I don’t even care if they’re supposedly bad ones, because I kind of love them all (OK, I will say I struggle to get through Star Wars: Attack of the Clones when that comes on, but I do still watch it until the end).
But, that’s enough waffle. It’s time to get onto Small Screen’s official Star Wars movie rankings with added Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.
11. Star Wars: Episode II – Attack Of The Clones
10. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
9. Solo: A Star Wars Story
8. Star Wars: Episode VI – Return Of The Jedi
7. Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith
6. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens
5. Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise Of Skywalker
4. Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
3. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
2. Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi
1. Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
So, there you have it. This wasn’t an easy ranking to do because there’s a lot of great Star Wars movies out there, but I think this will have to do as Small Screen’s official Star Wars movie rankings.
Let us know if you agree or disagree with our choices. I’m sure many of you will because Star Wars movies are very polarising.
I actually can’t think of anything more polarising than Star Wars movies. People just love to discuss them, argue about them and it can become quite heated.
I would say that the film that’s casued the most controversy up until this point in Star Wars movie history is The Last Jedi. People seem to either love it or hate it.
People love to give their Star Wars movie rankings, don’t they
I’ve said how much I love Rian Johnson’s film in the past, and in this article now, and that’s why it’s so high up my list, but still, everybody is entitled to their opinion, especially when it comes to Star Wars movies.
