4. COUNT DOOKU VS. YODA IN STAR WARS: EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES (2002)

There are over 500 years of experience in this fight scene, and it’s one of the highlights of the otherwise painful Star Wars prequel trilogy. Yoda against Count Dooku! Hundreds of thousands of CGI pixels against an 80-year-old Christopher Lee! What’s better than that? Well, a lot, but this fight was still jaw-dropping as it finally showed off what a skilled swordsman Yoda really is.

It also showed audiences that the frail Yoda could suddenly move around like a green tinted Mugsy Bogues when challenged to a duel. It didn't make a whole lot of sense, but it sure looked cool. For his part, Lee put up quite a fight too. Now if only the rest of the trilogy were as exciting as this geriatric throwdown.
