Ranking: Star Wars

With the Last Jedi just being released it’s time to look back at the rest of the Star Wars series. Here are my personal rankings of all the Star Wars films.

9. Attack of the Clones

While the Battle of Geonosis and seeing Yoda use a lightsaber for the first are some of the best spectacles in a Star Wars movie it’s not enough to save it from being the worst Star Wars film.

As wonderful as The Force Awakens is, as a film it did not take many risks. Many plot points are recycled, for example, Rey and Finn must return BB-8 to Poe and the Resistance; Rey and Finn receive help from Han Solo, an older mentor-type figure; the Resistance undertakes to destroy the First Order’s Starkiller Base. Sounds a bit like A New Hope, doesn’t it?

Despite playing it safe, The Force Awakens was a perfect re-entry to the Star Wars universe. That said, it was important for Episode VIII, The Last Jedi, to take risks in order to keep this portion of the Star Wars Saga engaging and fun to watch.

The Last Jedi, thankfully, is a far braver film than The Force Awakens, even if not all of the gambles succeed.
