Battle of the movies with red coloured titles and lots of red in them. ROTS came out ahead in the saga poll and now the two titans go head to head. Finally the question will be put to rest.
RotS is actually important to Star Wars mythos with a great dramatic throughline and is a wonderfully entertaining B movie. TLJ is uneven, often illogical, frustrating for its place in a trilogy, and drags a LOT.
You know it actually says a lot that this isn't even the climax of the second film and yet it has more emotional weight behind it than literally any fight in the PT, especially the Obi-wan vs. Anakin fight which was supposed to have three films worth of buildup and emotional weight. Hell, even the choreography was better by default because unlike the PT, all the supposed examples of bad choreography are super zoomed in nitpicky gifs and not....literally the entire frame of the shots.
