Below is my ranking of the six movies in the "STAR WARS" franchise:


1a. "Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) - In this second movie of the Original Trilogy, Luke Skywalker takes advanced Jedi training from former Jedi Master Yoda and his friends are relentlessly pursued by Darth Vader as part of his plan to capture Luke. One of my top two favorite STAR WARS movies. (TIE)

1b. "Episode II - Attack of the Clones" (2002) - The second movie of the Prequel Trilogy featured Jedi apprentice Anakin Skywalker sharing a forbidden romance with Senator Padmé Amidala; while his teacher, Obi-Wan Kenobi, makes an investigation of a separatist assassination attempt on Padmé which leads to the discovery of a secret Republican clone army. My other favorite STAR WARS movie. (TIE)

2. "Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" (2005) - In the last Prequel Trilogy movie, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker concludes his journey to becoming a Sith Lord, following three years of fighting the Clone Wars and puts his friendship with Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi and his marriage at risk. Very intense.

3. "Episode I - The Phantom Menace" (1999) - In the first Prequel Trilogy, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi investigate the Trade Federation's takeover of the planet of Naboo and meet nine year-old Anakin Skywalker for the first time.

4. "Episode IV - A New Hope" (1977) - This is the first movie in the Original Trilogy and the first to be released in the theaters. It tells the story of farmboy Luke Skywalker, who leaves his home planet and teams up with other rebels, while trying to save Princess Leia from the evil clutches of Darth Vader.

5. "Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" (1983) - The last Original Trilogy movie featured the rescue of Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt and the Rebels' attempt to destroy the Second Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker tries to get his father to reject his role as the Emperor's apprentice.
