I was born in the 70's so I watched them by release date.

Star war first(I'ts called Star wars do not give me any of that New hope crap) then ESB and finally ROTJ.

Then I watched the other ones in order and hated them apart from the last half hour of ROTS.

A friend and I recently introduced them to a 12 year old freinds daughter but watched them in chronological order, she loved the first 3(newer ones) but hated the origionals as the quality and effects/fight scenes were terrible by modern standards.

With the new ones coming out over the next few years what should be the best order to watch if you have never seen them before?

If you're a fan, try not seeing them as they come out.

I saw the first three in order, the first one was a sensation unlike any other film I can remember going to see. This was Lucas first sic fi block buster and played to packed movie theaters forever it seemed.

I remember going back to see it several times and the SOP was to get there at least an hour early, lines were down the block. They had to turn people away. What a genre…

So many firsts were introduced with the first Star Wars, the sensation and stir it caused was unbelievable.

This blast from the past was brought to you by old people. We now return you to your ordinary programming schedule.

You have to watch Darth Vader before you see Anakin..

I can see younger kids liking the newer ones better. They're alright. I don't hate on them as much as other people.

The newer ones (1-3) seem smaller to me. Could be that they lack the grand emotions in 4-6..

Anyway.. Now I want to watch Starwars, but I just realized I only have 4-6 on VHS. Oh man. I don't think my computer takes TAPES haha..

We recorded the proper films off the tv on christmas day when they premiered.

We watched them so many times that pre remote control days we took it in turns to know where the adverts were, even my mum knew that a certain phrase meant they were coming.

We helped my mum move and she found the tapes and wanted to trhow them out but we kept them. I still think it is the best way to watch them, worn out flicky vhs with adverts for long dead products is the way to go.

Not only do we remember the films word for word we also recite the adverts!

Watch them the way they were released. If you watch them in sequential order (1,2,3,4,5...) you already know Vader is Luke's father before the big reveal in Empire.

At the risk of parroting others: in the order of release. I missed the original trilogy by several years, but wasn't a kid when the second trilogy came out. I didn't care for the second one nearly as much as the first.

I've seen this written up online a few times.
And I'll agree with this order.

Episodes IV, V, II, III, VI

You want to establish luke first along with the rebellion.
In episode V you got a great dramatic point at the end. ie Vader being lukes father. if you played episode III before hand you'll have ruined this surprise. And A hell of a jaw dropping surprise it is.
In II, III you'll have a framework for seeing Anakin as a Jedi and his descent towards the darkside. And at the end of III you'll see luke and leia being born.
Finally in VI you'll get to see Luke trying to bring his father back from the darkside.

episode I....... don't even bother.

Any speculation on the next 6?

And yes I do enjoy poking angry badgers with sticks.

Which movie can stand alone. By itself. With no sequels. No follow ups and no prequells.
Only the original Star Wars. Without the genius of the first movie, the first sound track, the John Williams original score, well, all the rest is only the rest.

After an order from the bar consisting of enough strong drinks to render you uncounsious.BY the time the three reboots sequells prequells gotohells start.

BUT To answer your question you start to read a book from the first page ,SO WATCH The films from the first an only decent film the first one.

The special effects of the originals are far superior to CGI.
They are the only ones worth watching.
