Empire is not the best star wars movie. Why is it everyone always parroting that it is?

Honestly, rouge one should have been the original or first star wars movie, then a new hope, empire, return of the jedi, FAW, TLJ and finally ROS in that order. They should burn the solo movie along with episode 1, 2, and 3.

Rogue One was fantastic. I want more like it.

Out of the first trilogy, empire was the best, but when you take into consideration all 9 movies and the 2 spinoffs, rouge one is the best movie hands down.

BTW, rouge one is too good to be a spinoff, it needs to be a prequel and replace episodes 1-3. If anything, they should re-edit and condense 1-3 into one movie and eliminate all the fluff and non-essential garbage out of them (like jar-jar, and the affair between Anakin and queen Amidala) and have it roll right into the beginning of rouge one, just like rouge ended with the beginning of a new hope.

I think Empire is perhaps the best I remember seeing it in the theaters when it came out and those huge Imperial Walkers were so cool of an effect especially way back then. Now for a more worthy debate I propose Jarr Jarr for best Star Wars character. Eat it! :)

Geez, I thought MY thread was controversial...
I cant sleep at night knowing all these people renounce Empire as the GOAT.
Infidels!

For me the original three will be the best...but I do love Mandolorian.

Rogue One was a breath of fresh air after so many dissapointments.

I wonder how many of you actually saw Star Wars in the theater when it first came out in 1977 and if that movie places higher in your list.

Not a chance for me. Being 5 y.o. at the time of release for Empire also kept me out of the theatre. However, I did manage to snag a bootleg copy of Empire on VHS. Watched it until the tape finally gave up.
I also recall taping Star Wars off the TV.
Somehow I failed to remove the ads, so on each viewing, had to fast-forward through the ads......D’oh!
I can even recall the ads 😂
Those were the days!
