Rank the Jedi

Just gonna drop this here without comment for future reference. I’m quoting Metacritic scores (as of 16 Feb 2018) here; not much interested in IMDB user ratings, etc., which are, for one thing, hackable, and for another thing… well, one should never take professional critics’ ratings seriously, nor the rabble’s, but in this instance I think the former is the more meaningful of the two.

Update: I decided to throw in domestic gross, adjusted for inflation, and the position on the all time chart for that too (as of 16 Feb 2018). Films are in chronological order of release, and colors are to group into trilogies, standalone stories, and in a category by itself, The Clone Wars.
