Finally saw it. At first I was amazed I made it this long without seeing any spoilers, and then I realized people just don't care about it enough to talk about it. Endgame was ruined for me just from google news recommending headlines for me. This has just been meh publicly.

I didn't like it, I didn't hate it. Same way I felt about TLJ. Bad storytelling all around, no chance to focus on any one character's progress and decision making. Too many locations, too many story points, too many side quests.

Glad Is aw it. Glad it's over. My rankings:

Empire, Hope, Awakens, RotJ, R1, 8/9 tie, Solo, III, I, II

^If I had to watch just one on its own, I'd choose FA before those two. RotJ I'd want to watch just the very beginning and very end. Even though FA's highs aren't as high, it's more consistently not low.

I don't remember as much RotJ hate until Lucas put out the terrible 'special edition' which had more drastic changes than the special editions of ANH and ESB. It's one thing if you want to add some CGI dewback or new explosion graphics, but they completely changed the music and scene in Jabba's palace as well as in the Ewok village, among other things

I saw the original version as a kid before the special editions came out. I liked it then but realized sometime around high school that it didn't stack up against IV and V. If it was just rescuing Han and then only Luke's story arc the rest of the way through it would be perfect. I like the space fight too, just not the stuff on the Endor moon.

Hey, people liked that death star, let's have another one! And cute little teddy bears will run around and kill trained soldiers with sticks! This is going to be great movie!

People shit on the latest trilogy just rehashing plotlines when the original trilogy did the same thing. At least the new ones changed it from a death star to a giant laser in a planet.

They were guerrillas who used the environment to their advantage. It was an ode to Vietnam. Storm troopers never had aim anyway and a conventional military couldn't do shit against a walker but they rigged up some traps.

They're little stubby-limbed fucking teddy bears who make "cute" noises.
