ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : Ranking The Star Wars Movies

Ok ….. I am not the biggest Star Wars fan out there. While I do like the franchise and have received hours of entertainment from it, I am not really sure why this franchise is such an American and global icon (marketing and money comes to mind). I don’t get the huge appeal. Again, I do like them, but I do not rate them that high. Having said that, here is my ranking in terms of my enjoyment of the films. You may find it odd but it’s my list.

  • IV – A New Hope (1977)
  • III – Revenge of the Sith (2005)
  • VI – Return of the Jedi (1983)
  • II – Attack of the Clones (2002)
  • V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  • Rogue One : A Star Wars Story (2016)
  • VII – The Force Awakens (2015)
  • VIII – The Last Jedi (2017)
  • I – The Phantom Menace (1999)

ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : Top Films Of 2017 That I Watched

This here little list is my personal list of my top 11 films released 2017 that I have watched. So you might see a couple of noticeable exclusions – that’s because I haven’t seen them yet. I will eventually get to them at some time in the near future. So here is my list:
