New JD Poll: Where does ROTS rank now?!
« on: May 19, 2005, 07:03 AM »
We just put up a new poll on our main page asking our JD members where they think ROTS ranks now that they've (hopefully) seen the movie...  So after you get the chance to scope out the latest and final SW flick, go tell us what you think of it in our JD poll!  8)

I voted:

#5: Not thrilled with it, but still better than TPM.

That pretty much sums up my feelings.

My choice was "Excellent, but there's still one better." - IMHO it still does not beat ESB - that movie was great. I definitely think it's better than ANH and ROTJ though. Would have been my #1 if they hadn't cut some things.

#4 for now, perhaps 3 behind ANH & ESB after a 2nd viewing.

Option #4 , best prequel but still not as good as the originals.

TESB
ANH
ROTS
AOTC/ROTJ
TPM

That's my ranking. I really thought  ROTS was awesome. The only thing I didn't like was the way they described Padme's death. It should have due t some complications from Anakin's force choking her. That would have made it more powerful and made a little more sense.

1 - TESB
2 - ANH
3 - ROTJ
4 - AOTC
5 - TPM
6 - ROTS

As movie on it's own, it could rank higher, but given it's place in the saga, it is bitterly disappointing.

Everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinions, but ranking ROTS dead last out of the six is absolutely insane from where I stand. Granted I've only seen it once so far, but I'm FAR from disappointed in how it plays into the Saga.

1. ESB
2. ANH
3. ROTS
4. ROTJ
5. AOTC
6. TPM

I need to get a couple of more viewings under the belt, I believe pre Sith my ranking would have been thus:

ESB
AOTC
ROTJ
ANH
TPM

Clones might be behind ROTJ but I don't know.  I know ROTS is better than AOTC to me so it comes down to taking out ESB and right now, I think it does.   We'll see though...

ROTS better than ESB??

Blasphemy!!

Any movie in this series taking out ESB in the #1 spot would be considered Blasphemy.

At present, for me...
 
-ANH/ESB/ROTJ are almost all 3 tied...  I can't say I like one of those films more than the other, as I like all 3 for different things...  Either for being the "first", or being a more in-depth story, or for having the most intense action...  That's all my #1, a 3-way tie.

-ROTS...  Easily the #2 slot then since I condensed #1. :)  ROTS was good I think, but I agree with Dave that I don't think I'd replace any classic film with it.  Call me crazy but I like Ewoks, I think the Sarlac SE battle's as good as it was pre-SE, and the space battle in ROTJ still is bigger and more "wow" to me than the one in ROTS...

-AOTC is next, and it's a good solid film IMO.  I can stomach the few love dialogue moments I dislike, for the action. 

-TPM is last and has the most flaws.  A bad child actor, and a CGI character that should've spoken with subtitles and 3PO translating...  And had his time cut down.
