Star Wars Holiday Poll
« on: December 22, 2016, 05:13:41 AM »
It is flabbergasting, ind-boggling and incomprehensible that this poll should not exist somewhere already. You could say I find this lack of poll disturbing. I imagine it is because the people who usually make the polls around here have so far assumed there would be too little dissent for it to be worth the trouble. But at least half the reason I like the poll threads is so I can see the rankings and grades people give each individual movie. Does Empire triumph by a hair's breadth or is it miles better than Jedi ? What's more, with the third trilogy and Anthology movies upon us, one dare hope greatness is once more within reach. Also, the colours are pretty.

No, I will not be including that other one.

Don't all start voting for the prequels at the same time.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens
Star Wars
Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
Rogue One
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace


Not 100% sure between Rogue One and Jedi. Jedi has some great scenes and some terrible, terrible stuff, whereas Rogue One is just generally fine, so it's hard to compare.

I find the entire section on the planet with the research facility to be close enough to terrible to shake its hand.

I am glad you voted for VII. An early defender of non-original series.

I am pretty sure you're not allowed to mention that last one in polite company.

I did not know you liked the last prequel the least. It is usually the one people prefer out of the three. The first thing that comes to my mind is that, as a fan, you may be disgusted at the arc they gave Darth Vader, which I is a position I could easily defend.

It gives me the full rainbow.

Remove the fan vitriol, the first one isn't as bad as people say. Everything people say is bad is there, but there's also a certain amount that Lucas does well. Clones had even more of the good stuff - "This party's over." - but all people want to talk about is Anakin's terrible speech about sand. With Revenge of the Sith, Lucas kills every moment that approaches good. The dialogue isn't just as bad as ever, it invades every scene. The "cool" action bits are destroyed by... I remember the space chicken, the Emperor's howls of "No! No! No!" as he transforms, and the climactic lava battle with Anakin and Obi-Wan on computer rock rafts. I liked Palpatine throwing the Senate at Yoda, but that's it.

Can I just vote for Empire three times?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I will add a couple of Empire options. One must oblige the mods.

There are four scenes I can say to truly like in Menace. The rest of the movie is filled with terrible acting (child actors are a pestilence and do not deserve to be thought of as being in the same category as the likes of Quvenzhané Wallis) and enormous lulls.

Phantom Menace is awful, except for two scenes (podrace and lightsaber truel). The performances are uniformly terrible except for Liam Neeson, and it's not like he's great either. Maybe it works as a children's movie, but what do I care ?
