Empire Strikes Back is by far the greatest of the Star Wars Movies, and is perhaps the greatest sequel ever filmed.
Agreed. I'd put Godfather 2 above Empire in terms of greatest sequels, but Empire is definitely the best of the Star Wars films.
I won't take my kids to see Phantom Menace in the theater, probably not Clones either.
1 - Empire Strikes Back
2 - A New Hope
3 - Return of the Jedi (the Ewoks were a bit grating though)
4 - Revenge of the Sith (not too far below Jedi)
5 - Attack of the Clones
6 - Phantom Menace - (The story, direction and acting sucked in general. Jar Jar and Jake Lloyd made it vomit inducing).
