Now that I re-watched the entire franchise plus Rise, this is now nearly impossible for me.

1. Empire

People ranking TROS over ROTS is clearly just a blind prequel hater. I could see someone preferring this to 1+2, but ROTS is LEAGUES better than TROS

The prequels are worse movies than the ST but the PT as a whole is a better Star Wars story and saga than the ST and it isn’t even close. It still understands the theatrical and space opera quality of Star Wars and doesn’t try to make them just like a modern blockbuster that set in the SW universe.

Just because I put all the prequels at the bottom doesn’t mean anything. I literally love every Star Wars film. I can make fun of all of them and rank them crazily because they are all inherently silly, weird space adventures. I love Star Wars. Rise of Skywalker is bonkers and fun as hell and made me feel like a kid again. I have a bias towards all Star Wars and I prefer that over being a curmudgeon about whether or not George Lucas or Rian Johnson or JJ ruined it.

It isn't, though. The only thing better is Ian McDiarmid's performance. I was on the "ROTS is an improvement from the first two" train at the time, but re-watching it in recent years it still suffers majorly from the same flaws that plagued those two. George can't write dialogue or direct actors out of a paper bag. The tragedy of Anakin's arc just ends up being more laughable than compelling. I still enjoy Ian hamming it up, though, and that reason alone is enough to put it in a tier above TPM/AOTC.

TROS has an equally awful script, IMO, but with a much worse story.

ROTS has the one of my least favorite characters in the whole franchise in General Grievous. Replace him and the film is so much better in my eyes.

I don't think so. There is cringiness, but not on Lucas' sleep-walking level.

The imagery in TROS also isn't up to TLJ's level, but it is still better than the hollow/inert cartoon-scape of the prequels.
