Return of the King, by a long shot. To date, it still remains the most ambitious epic ever filmed and has the best conclusion to any cinematic franchise. There's a reason that it swept the Oscars, despite being in a genre that's largely overlooked by awards: it's a masterwork in virtually every aspect of filmmaking and storytelling.

Return of the Jedi was the best of the Trilogy, but it doesn't hold up in quite as many areas as Return of the King, and certainly falls short in technological achievement.
