Simon Pegg Ranks the Star Wars Movies


Speaking with MTV, Simon Pegg (looking super trendy with his thick-frame glasses and rolled-up shirt sleeves) was given one minute to rank the six Star Wars films. Though he has only ten seconds to justify each film (he speaks really quickly), Pegg expounds on his decision to rank Revenge as the best of the hated prequels: "It had at least some connection to the first three films, which saved it for me, even though it was another … uh … mess."

As for his No. 1, which he calls a "controversial" decision, he says, "In terms of artistry and sheer balls, The Empire Strikes Back would be my favorite."
