Man a lot of people HATE Rise of Skywalker. I thought it was good

I'm going Friday after work.  There's only one other seat taken right now.

 

I like parts of Jedi and Skywalker, I just felt they were messy overall and disappointing because I did really enjoy TFA.  The sequels were always going to get more harshly judged by me though; they should've done Thrawn on the big screen.

Yeah it’s a convoluted mess. More like a 2.5 hour trailer than a movie the way it was edited. And the emperor shit was stupid.

Actually I'd move Solo up to 7 on my rankings.  I just watched it again; it was better than I remembered on the first watch.

It's weird I had the same experience, in the theaters was completely underwhelmed, upon rewatching...it's actually pretty good!

And I’m the one with weird takes?

 

It was a mess plain and simple. 
 


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Watched the Lego holiday special and it was super cute, definitely a fun use of about 45 minutes

Today was Disney Investor Day and a slew of news content was dropped. I am sure will continue to roll in but so far we have:

 

Star Wars News

  • New Disney+ Shows announced:
    • Rangers of the New Republic: live-action spinoff of The Mandalorian
    • Ahsoka: live-actionspinoff of The Mandalorian
    • Obi-Wan Kenobi series that will feature Ewan McGregor AND Hayden Christiansen as Darth Vader. It will be set 10 years after Revenge of the Sith
    • The Bad Batch: Clone Wars animated spin-off series
    • Rogue Squadron: Next Star Wars feature-length movie that will feature pilots across the Star Wars universe and will release on Christmas 2023
    • Andor: A series featuring Cassian Andor, from Rogue One
    • The Acolyte: a thriller series that will focus on the dark side in the High Republic era (about 200 years before the prequel trilogies)
    • Visions: Series of animated short films
    • A Droid Story
  • The Mandalorian: Season 3 to debut on Christmas 2021
  • Confirmation that Taika Waititi (Thor Ragnorak and Thor Love and Thunder) is developing a future Star Wars movie

Not entirely sure how Hayden as Darth Vader will work unless his voice suddenly sounds remarkably like James Earl Jones

All those spinoffs and new series and nary a mention of Han Solo.  Tells you what Disney thought of that movie...

I kinda feel like if they are going to do these feature length missing gap movies, they need to be a one-off. Having Solo get a whole trilogy to himself feels like a disservice to the meat and potatoes saga. But doing a prequel or a spin off movie to flesh out backstory or whatever in a one movie thing I like. That, Rogue One, you could do a couple others like that, but now with the Disney Plus platform that seems like an even better fit. But the storylines where you don't have much to say cause it fits between a and b would be better in a short 2 hour segment instead of a 8-13 episode season.

My two major takes are

 

1. The Force Awakens is the most fun of the movies to watch. Not the best, not the most well-made but just in terms of getting enjoyment from two hours of your time, it's #1 for me.

2. Rogue One is a good movie but it's hard to feel any emotional attachment to characters that are one-and-done compared to characters that were in one or more of the trilogies. Couldn't find the energy to really care about Jyn Erso compared to Rey or whoever.

Judge Rules Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker Are Mediocre and Schlocky

Judge Kenneth K. Lee called Disney's Star Wars sequels mediocre and schlocky in a recent legal ruling.

The Bad Batch is fine so far, but it's not grabbing me the way Rebels or the later seasons of Clone Wars did.
