Now that Rogue One is out, talk will inevitably turn to how it stacks up against the other movies in the franchise. While all movies are subjective (there is no right or wrong answer) and it probably being contingent on whether you grew up with the original trilogy or the prequels as your first avenue into the galaxy far far away, here is my list.

PS - I have purposely left The Clone Wars animated feature off the list.

1- The Empire Strikes Back
2- A New Hope
3- The Force Awakens
4- Return of the Jedi
5- Rogue One
6- Revenge of the Sith
7- The Phantom Menace
8- Attack of the Clones

I grew up with the original trilogy and as  you can probably see, it didn't really matter.  This is my list as it stands right now:

1- The Force Awakens
2- The Empire Strikes Back
3- Revenge of the Sith
4- A New Hope
5- Return of the Jedi
6 - The Phantom Menace
7- Attack of the Clones
8- Rogue One

1 and 2 are really are a tie for me.  Rogue One didn't do it for me at all, so it's a blip on my Star Wars radar at present.

2) Return of the Jedi
3) The Force Awakens
4) Rogue One
5) A New Hope
6) Revenge of the Sith
7) The Phantom Menace

99) Lack of Attack of the Clones

Yes, I saw the prequels first, and yes you read that right. AOTC is in 2nd.

I guess I'm not liking what Disney's doing. I had a hard time deciding between R1 and TFA. In the end it was THE Vader scene that put R1 on top. I almost want to go see it again just for those 20 seconds.

I had a similar struggle between ROGUE ONE and THE FORCE AWAKENS because neither film has a stellar script. It ultimately came down to the fact that I like the characters in TFA more (even though the ROGUE ONE characters have more consistent psychologies) and TFA had a more rousing climax than ROGUE ONE. To extrapolate more on the both films' climaxes, neither one sets up their big moments well, but Rey pulling the lightsaber from the snow is so incredible in the moment that it tops all of ROGUE ONE's third act, even if ROGUE ONE has a land/space battle that's among the best in the series.

I'll likely enjoy more of ROGUE ONE on rewatches, but nothing in that movie will be as affecting as when Rey retrieves the lightsaber from the snow, and I'd much rather spend my time with Rey, Finn, Kylo, and Poe than any character from ROGUE ONE (aside from Chirrut because he's the best).
