The prequels....I had forgotten how much garbage they were until I rewatched them last year. They were terrible. Terrible FX, terrible acting, terrible dialogue.

I rewatched the original trilogy before Ep7 came out, I feel no reason to bother with the prequels ever again.

I wonder if there are any hints being dropped in the supplemental movies that will be brought back in the main movie line? Anything that makes them essential to the SW universe beyond fan service? I feel like the scenes on Jedha in R1 have to have some connection to Luke's obsession with the old Jedi ways.

the new line is popcorn so it will all be nods to old fans. they arent going to grow the plot from some seed planted deep in the old movies. at the most, they will continue to parallel the plot.

r1 was different because it had to end with anh

I hated on the preqs as much as anyone. But after my most recent rewatch I’ve softened on the hate a bit. Still plenty of moments though. I’m still confused as to how any sane person thought Jar Jar was a good idea( yeah yeah. I know. KIDS WILL LOVE IT!!!!1112345) other than that it wasn’t as bad as I remembered. Im also not hating on Jake and Hayden’s acting as much as I did before. Im going to start blaming their weak performance on shitty writing and directing.

Ewan McGregor makes it worth it getting through Ep2 and 3. I hope he shows up as ObiWan ghost in this trilogy at some point.

As much as I hate casting a younger actor in a prequel role of a legend. Ewan is 100% a young ObiWan.

Lets go!

There is a CG animal that appears in the trailer that I am not a fan of. Don't know the name of it but they are going to have to explain a lot for me to buy into it. The big brown fox thing.

Critics reviews just starting to come out. So far so good. 96% on Rotten Tomatoes so far.

The only thing negative that I've read is that it does slightly mirror Empire Strikes Back.

The planet battle is pretty cool with the colors, so is the shot for light speed battle.

Everything else was pretty meh.

I could def see complaints about too many ESB parallels.

Maybe if I hadn't seen Ragnarok a few weeks ago I would have been more forgiving but Ragnarok>>>This.

Another thing is most of the humor attempts are pure cheese in Last Jedi

I feel like a contrarian but it was just kinda boring.

I can see your points. However I cannot compare to Ragnarok as we have somehow missed seeing it.

If it caters to old school SW fanboys half as much as TFA and R1 then I'm in

Disappointed. Not bad by any means and def better than the prequels. I’ll hold off on the spoilers for now. The good parts were really good but the bad parts just made no sense.

Did not like that at all.

There’s three main plot threads. One is a chase sequence that lasts the entire film, one is a totally pointless sub-plot with moments that feel lifted from the prequels, and the other is the plot thread that everyone knows is truly important and it takes 4/5 of the film to really kick into gear.

And the Leia in space thing, the hell was that about?

Audience score on RT is at 67%. That makes me sad

However I'll wait for the resident expert to come in here and post his opinion.

Then I'll wait for banjoman to say something about his opinion.

Yes. This exactly. I'm a huge Star Wars fanboy and I was underwhelmed. Maybe I just went in expecting too much because I really loved The Force Awakens and Rogue One so I was thinking this would be on a similar level, but it wasn't. If the Phantom Menace is a 1 and the Empire Strikes Back is a 10, I'd give this a 5.5. Not bad, not great. Just okay. I'll post more in the other thread.

Gotta say I liked it more than TFA. But then perhaps that is all due to shades of ESB which will forever be my favorite.

Seeing it at 3:00 today. Kind of bummed about the reaction from everyone so far. I would be happy with it being marginally better than TFA.

better than TFA but still underwhelming. the three trilogies are all different. This is more like a marvel type triology than star wars.

nothing was really "used" the movie was just a collection of cool shit that could have been used.
