7. Revenge of the Sith
Year released: 2005
Overall U.S. box office gross: $380.3 millionSix years after they began, George Lucas' Star-Wars prequels had inspired newcomers and longtime fans alike to do just one thing: usher them to their grave. After two installments featuring CGI nuisance Jar Jar Binks, some of the least believable "romance" Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman could muster and a dearth of Han Solo and Princess Leia for films that really could have used some of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher's wit and banter, folks just wanted to see Darth Vader and go home. It took them two and a half hours to get there, but they made it. Now that Lucasfilm has been sold to Disney and plans to rerelease the remainder of the prequels in 3-D are on indefinite hold, Revenge Of The Sith is the last Star Wars die-hards may speak of this sad chapter in the saga.
