Phantom Menace isn't trying to put the horrid dialogue at the forefront, which makes it miles better than Attack of the Clones.
Angsty Hayden Christensen is much worse than Jar Jar and Lloyd.

He's only in half the movie though. The Obi-Wan half isn't particularly good, but it has its moments and it kinda works. Also Christopher Lee is there and that's always fun. Phantom Menace only has two notable scenes that don't feature an awful performance/CGI character.

Star Wars
Return of the Jedi
Empire Strikes Back
Rogue One
Revenge of the Sith
The Force Awakens
Attack of the Clones
Stars Wars Christmas Special
The Phantom Menace

I will add an extra unpopular opinion, Jar Jar was a character I enjoyed.

I liked him as a kid. Honestly, C-3PO is almost as annoying in the original trilogy and worse in Attack of the Clones.

Greats:
Empire Strikes Back 5/5
Star Wars 4.5/5

Okays:
Episode VIII-- Ri-an! Ri-an! Ri-an!  (I have great hopes for this film) 4.5/5
Return of the Jedi 4/5
Attack of the Clones 3.5/5 Horrible expository dialogue, but everything when they weren't talking was top notch.
The Force Awakens 3.5/5

Never to be watched again:
Revenge of the Sith 2.5/5
The Phantom Menace 2.5/5


I know I watched the Ewok Movie as a kid, but I can't remember it at all.

Is there a cut of Phantom Menace where Jar Jar doesn't talk that I don't know about? This is the sort of thing that had people being locked up in sanatoria in the good old days. C-3PO was effeminate and mannered and cowardly and occasionally incompetent but at least he did not talk like someone with brain injuries caused by excessive defenestration. Jar Jar would stand out in a bad kids cartoon.

A New Hope (A+)
The Empire Strikes Back (A+)
Revenge of the Sith (B+)
Return of the Jedi (B)
Rogue One (B-)
Attack of the Clones (C+)
The Force Awakens (D)
The Phantom Menace (D)

More or less. I faded slightly on ROGUE ONE.
