    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★★

    For the longest time, this was the ONE Star Wars movie I never sat down to watch at least once. Well that isn't the case anymore. And now I ask: why the HELL did I skip over this one? Because this is one of the best movies in the entire saga.
