  • TLJ is the only good Star Wars movie.
  • I thought that the new trilogy was good.
  • If you want to reset the sequel series (And I don't blame you if you want to), you need to reset ALL of the sequel series, not just the one or two contentious ones. Also, while we're on the subject, would it be too much to ask to have an overarching story line planned out BEFORE filming this time?
  • It's going to be all Jar Jar now!
  • HEYYY!   who's stealing my alts????

  • The last two movies were not good. They were bad.
  • Yeah, this is the incel that's been whining about female lead movies. It's not happening, cry moar.
  • Favreau and Filioni should've been running things from the beginning.

    Pretty much.

    VII was "Hey, here's IV with more CGI - can't say it's like the Prequels!"
    VIII was "Here's some new characters, plot ideas, and an indication of where we'd like the universe to go!"
    IX was "OMG we're so sorry for VIII, here's episode VI again with more CGI and numerous references to how terrible VIII was."

    J. J. Abrams should be managing a Cinnabon in Omaha.

    I don't think JMS is doing anything at the moment.

    Why, do you like under-cooked cinnamon rolls?
  • There were parts of TLJ I liked, and parts I didn't care for.

    RoP was a string of nostalgia moments strung together without much cohesion, and it made me appreciate what I liked about TLJ even more.

    But taken as a whole, the new trilogy has resulted in the death of my love of Star Wars.

    I was one of those kittens who got the Orig Trig on VHS when I was 9 or 10 and absolutely fell in love with them.

    The prequel trilogy was bad in many ways, but didn't really have an impact on my feelings for the franchise as a whole.

    But as of the completion of the Sequel trilogy, I find I no longer care about the franchise at all, and I find myself with no interest in even returning to the Orig Trig.

    So I really don't care what becomes of the franchise at this point. I doubt I'll be watching.

    I really liked the first 2/3s of The Force Awakens.  Good action, good introduction to new characters, sure the tentacle monster fight scene was goofy but whatever.

    Once Rey got captured and the new Death Star Firing Across The Universe happened the movie went to shiat.  And the sequels never recovered.


    pkjun: TLJ is the only good Star Wars movie.


    "Sir, the Rebels are slowly getting away!"

    "Slowly follow them.  We will destroy them when they run out of gas!"
  • VII annoyed me
    VIII offended me on an intellectual level...and as a fan it broke many aspects of in universe canon
    IX... hold my beer...

    TLJ was so bad I skipped seeing RoS in theater on opening day...the only time I skipped opening day for a StarWars film (yes I even saw the CLoneWars cartoon movie opening day)
  • They aren't going to erase the prequel series from canon, that is stupid fanboy nonsense. Some people did like that trilogy and you can build off it later for money and nostalgia. What they will probably do is step back from the entire Skywalker/Palpatine stuff and focus more on other aspects of the Star Wars universe like other time period in Star Wars lore and other Jedi and other stories.

    And yet they're still somehow stale, too.
  • "The rumor comes from the "future ruler of Earth," the Doomcock Overlord DVD YouTube channel, who recently offered that a Star Wars "civil war" is happening at Lucasfilm between Kathleen Kennedy and Jon Favreau."

    In other words...a fan boy rage circle jerk

    Seriously...let it go...the films had major problems...but let it go.

    thats one of the things that breaks the in universe rules...
    in SW...technology has basically hit a plateau a couple thousand years previous the the Skywalker saga.
    the ONLY way most of this tech makes sense is if Energy is widely and cheaply available.
    now in support of a stupid plotline for a moronic movie, we have to introduce "hyperspace fuel" so we can have a sense of faux drama... then they had to cement this by making this new "coaxium" macguffin the central plot of "Solo"...and they didn't just double down on stupid, they triple downed on it... they have decided that hyper space fuel is extremely rare, and dangerous, and only comes from the SAME planet that the popular and highly illegal drug "spice" comes from... only one planet? as the source of ALL hyperspace fuel...for a civilization that spans thousands of planets, composed of trillions of beings, over several millennia?
    yeah....THAT makes zero sense.

    we are supposed to be able to suspend disbelief in order to buy the setting, the space magic etc...for that to work it has to have some in universe rules to follow...now they will break those internal boundries any time they feel like just so they can have a non-sensical action scene or plot point (Ep IX introduced "hyperspace skipping"...What the Proverbial fark??)

    Which is pretty much what Disney has been saying was going to happen anyway
  • Geez, that's an even dumber plan than what they went with for Ep 7-9.

    How he got there is a mystery that will never be solved.

    *Cue Beastie Boys song*
  • None of that would happen with Kathleen Kennedy still in charge. If I see her stepping down from being executive producer, then I'll start to believe.
