Would have to be Empire, if memory serves Lucas didn't really do much on that one. Might be why I like it so much

Aww no one likes dumb jokes about star wars. Okay my favorite is Return of the Jedi because it hass all the action of the first 2 a Death star attack run and a Light Saber Battle.

Also I'll take puppets and practical effects over CGI anyday because I'm old.

I also really liked the clone wars mini series on Cartoon network. The one done by the guy who did Samuari Jack not the series one.

It's a toss up between A New Hope and Empire. Empire is more complex and adult with interesting characters. A New Hope always invokes this sense of awe and wonder from the first time I saw it. There's just something about that opening sequence when the star destroyer flies over that gives me goosebumps.

"Empire had the better ending. I mean, Luke gets his hand cut off, finds out Vader's his father, Han gets frozen and taken away by Boba Fett. It ends on such a down note. I mean, that's what life is, a series of down endings. All Jedi had was a bunch of Muppets"

@wilcononomous: I love Muppets.

Especially ones that pound on stormtroopers heads with rocks.

Classic.

I know the prequel trilogy gets a bad rap, but I will defend to the death that Revenge was the most important film in the entire series. Empire had the biggest revelations, plot-wise but Revenge perfectly captured Anakin's journey to the dark side.

The argument about the role of technology affecting our humanity was the most powerful message I took from the film. Obi-Wan's quote from Jedi ("He's more machine now than man--twisted and evil.") is a haunting reminder of the evolution Anakin had in becoming Darth Vader.

Hayden Christensen's acting, as per usual, was pretty atrocious, but when I think back to Mark Hamill's acting, he hams it up as well. When I see Darth Vader telling Luke that he is his father I laughingly (and lovingly) mock Mark's over-the-top response.

The final argument I have is that it was the movie that redeemed the prequel trilogy from the brink of disastrous failure. Story-wise, we knew what would happen, but Lucas executed it much better than expected.

@curtisuxor: I hear what you're saying. Revenge of the Sith is pretty watchable. My biggest problem with it is Anakin killing the youngling jedi children, not to mention the sandpeople women and children he slaughtered in Attack of the Clones. Redemption is one thing, but redemption after killing kids ... yeah, I have a tough time feeling sympathetic at the end of Jedi now.

Agreed, there's not much difference between Hayden and Mark Hamill in acting chops. Oh well.

Empire all the way, no doubt about it.

IV, a new hope. Empire is a very close second though
