Forums - Movies Discussion - Where do you place The Mandalorian in your Star Wars ranking?

Here's my order:

1. Empire Strikes Back
2. A New Hope
3. Return of the Jedi
4. Rogue One
5. The Mandalorian
6. Clone Wars
7. Solo
8. Episode 7 thru 9 cuz they all were equally bad imo
9. Episode 1 thru 3 cuz of the same reason above

The only Star Wars films I liked were Rogue One and Star Wars 77.

I watched a few episodes of The Mandalorian. It's not for me. I just remember the dialogue being really terrible, like one character yelling out "I'm pinned down!" when everyone could see that clearly. So where would I rank it? Definitely low based on what I've seen.

I could probably make up a ranking, but really the only two I care enough for putting on a list are Rogue One and Star Wars 77.

I suppose I can go a little deeper on this as well.

Of the more recent films (and by recent, I mean Phantom Menace onward). Of the mainline Star Wars films post-The Return of the Jedi, I found The Last Jedi to be the only decent one. I also find it funny how youtube Star Wars fans melt down when I post this opinion. They go ballistic over the fact that Laura Dern has pink hair, and believe it's the result of a conspiracy orchestrated by Rian Johnson with some woman in Disney (probably targeting her because she's a woman), and backed by the SJW agenda, the gay agenda, and the soy industry - yes, homosexuals and a variety of East-Asian bean backed a conspiracy to ruin Star Wars, apparently =D

But any way. I'm no fan of Star Wars as a franchise, or blockbusters as an industry, but The Last Jedi is one of the better blockbusters since 2000.

Although, as I said, my preference goes for the original Star Wars and Rogue One. Those are the only two films I can say I like a lot in the whole franchise. I did like the 1990s PC games, though; I thought Tie Fighter and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter were both great games (although, probably terrible now).

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

That's a...  really interesting opinion. I'm just going to say that you and I have WAY different tastes in movies.

I know I'm going to be stoned for this, but I agree with you on The Last Jedi being good or even great (better than The Force Awakens for sure, although I don't how it compares to The Rise of Skywalker, because I haven't had the chance to watch that one yet). To sum it up, the whole movie is a metaphor, and a very well constructed one, with all the elements reinforcing one another, and reinforcing the whole idea, which is that old things have to die so that new ones are born. They made an extremely conservative movie in The Force Awakens (almost a remake or a mix, if you ask me) and then they crafted The Last Jedi with this strong message of breaking with the past, and even going as far as to laugh at themselves (and at lots of other blockbusters while they were at it), thanks to the idea of...

Spoiler!

...making the whole quest of the hero useless. That was a brilliant move in my book, because on one hand, they gave people what (theoretically) people were looking for in a film of this kind, which is a heroic adventure filled with lots of moments of action and tension. But on the other hand, that same quest was nothing but a perfect parody of what these kinds of movies are, because in the end it wasn't the heroes who saved the day with their extremely risky, far-fetched and nonsensical adventure; the one who saved the day was that woman who actually knew what she was doing and sticked to it no matter what, because her plan was actually the most efficient way to be successful in the situation they were with the means they had. I understand how people can dislike that, but it's way much better than stuff like "Hey! We've created an impenetrable space bunker but, uh, well, there's a tiny spot in it that your brave hero can use to totally destroy it! =D".

Also, this whole situation (the hated lady silently carrying the weight of the situation, while the heroes were just fooling around) is one of the biggest contributors to the metaphor I mentioned before that this movie is, because the quests of the heroes were one of the most rooted traditions in this saga and this movie picked them up, threw them on the ground and stomped on them.

So for a blockbuster of this time and age (!), The Last Jedi was groundbreaking, and it's a shame that fans and people in general hated it so much, because it would've been quite interesting to see what could've followed. This is one of the most carefully thought (and risky) blockbusters that has been made in years, and all it got was hate. I think a "shaking my head" emoji fits very well here.

Anyway, this is just my opinion (one based on something I watched years ago), and of course I know that The Last Jedi has flaws too - it's not a perfect movie by any means, and Disney introducing its own identity in a saga where it doesn't fit much doesn't precisely help. But in any case, The Last Jedi is not as bad as people make it look - not even close.

[Edit] I actually want to (re)watch all the movies as soon as I have the chance to do it, so I'll probably have a better opinion on this when that happens.

I have periods of social disconnection, it's a part of me that I need and keenly embrace. I'll still log in and read news and threads during those times, but I won't be (very) active on the site, so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (late answers, bumps or the like).

Please, feel free to correct my English.

The Last Jedi is not only the best Star Wars New trilogy movie, but actually one of the best blockbusters movies last decade and surely the second best star wars movie. I never could take
seriously any of criticism regarding it

Anyways, this is my ranking:

1 Empire Strikes Back
2 The Last Jedi
3 Rogue One
4 A New Hope
5 The Revenge of the Sith

Until here, every SW movie I consider to be a great movie, now let's down to be good but no great:

6 The Force Awakens
7 The Return of Jedi
8 The Attack of Clones

Now we start the list of ok-ish movies, movies that are not good, but still somewhat enjoyable everything considered:

9) Solo, a star wars story
10) The Phantom Menace

And to finish writing have the pretty much only SW movie that is bad... like REALLY bad, with nothing really positive to save it:

11) The Rise of Skywalker

Yes I'm not a bootlicker from OT, I agree it's the best trilogy, but is less about how good OT trilogy is, and more about how good the new movies are. I always find them great, SW overall is one of the best blockbusters franchises. Why people nitpick so many small details to criticize the new movies till this day is beyond me



Around the Network

1. Revenge of the Sith
2. Empire Strikes Back
3. Return of the Jedi
