I have fond memories of 'A New Hope'; I took my girlfriend to see it. Drove an about an hour to get to the theater, waited about an hour to get to the sales window and ended up watching some movie involving the French foreign legion.
When I finally saw it, I sat through the movie 3 times - long before reserved seating. It was the best (non-horror) SyFi movie of its time - despite the subpar acting. I waited to watch the next one in the series until people stopped camping out around the block waiting to see it.

I grew up with the original trilogy, but I voted Rogue One.
I was really pleasantly surprised by that one AND it answers some questions I've had since I was a little kid
The originals were awesome, especially in their day, but I don't want to get stuck in the past.
Also, I liked the prequels (and loved the game Star Wars Episode I: Racer - Wikipedia[^]).
I havent seen Solo and Episode IX (yet), but so far I'm not fond of the sequels (I mean VII was just A New Hope remastered, but worse)
Honestly, out of everything, the Mandalorian and the Clone Wars cartoon are my favourite (when in rome, add a U) parts of the Star Wars universe. Cool fact, lots of scenes in the Mandalorian were shot in front of a huge LCD screen.
There were only ever 3 Starwars movies. What's all this other crap clogging up the voting options.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Well, I went to see Star Wars when it first came out. I guess it may have had a subtitle, but I don't remember. I enjoyed the movie but haven't seen any more. I put "not seen any" as there's no other option in the survey. Favourite bit? Where Vultan says "Gordon's alive?!"
According to wikipedia, "The original film, retroactively subtitled Episode IV: A New Hope". Honestly, it was the best one, if I am forced to pick one as the best. Everything after that went downhill. As for renaming it long after the fact once they realized it caught on with fans, is just plain wrong. It made it on its own merit, so leave it alone as being what it is, the original.
