    Jim, are you interested in seeing movies surrounding Grand Admiral Thrawn at all? That's really all I want to see from the Star Wars universe. If they ever do it I'll be so happy. (provided it's done like Rogue One)

        Naw the prequels are better than these. This trilogy has pretty much been a rehash of the original.

            The last jedi was terrible tho...but it had some great things. It had a lot of potential but fell very short.

              In full agreement I feel like My want for rogue one to be amazing makes me think higher of it than I should.

            there is no a more FAKE SW fan than the one who doesn't at the very least respects the values of the prequels

              The reason why The Last Jedi was a travesty is because Luke was all wrong. Luke is full of hope no matter how dark the situation. And he would NEVER have even considered harming his nephew. He has always believed that Good can overcome evil. That's why he was able to redeem his father.

                Bro saying the prequels don't exist it's harsh bro, I love Qui-gon. And the way they built Obi-wan i think held true to his character in the original trilogy. I think people have a hard time because we all knew where it was going to end.

                    Well the reason they're double backing is cause 8 was so badly recieved. 7 set us up for expectations, none of which were met in 8

                      I hated most of the Last Jedi quite a bit, but not as much as I hated the toxic reactions from some of the fanbase.

                        There isn't even a good star wars movie. Revenge of the Sith is probably the best minus the corny dialogue, followed by Rogue One. It is then a sharp decline to the next film.

                          I would absolutely love a series of critiquing every mcu movie in this style, starting with Iron Man. Just off the cuff, "Oh and here's another thing," "Personally, [Movie Title] was terrible in my opinion and here's why..." It suits your channel for sure.

                            Can’t argue any of your points, still excited, but it looks like they are playing it safe again. Star Wars is tough, indeed.

                              Loved how dynamic Kylo Ren was becoming in Last Jedi, so i agree on many of your points

                                Last Jedi was barely watchable honestly, I think if you look back in the abstract, the stuff happening with Kyle Ren and Rey is exciting, but minute to minute the movie is just awful. Nothing happening between the First Order and the Resistance escape ship was worth watching.

                                  The prequels are highly underrated, very flawed but also filled with real meaningful moments, unlike the new movies which did not put in the work of building meaning for the payoff moments. Snoke dies, who cares, we don’t know who he is. Rey saves the day, but she’s never failed at anything so it’s not clear what her challenges are

                                    Worth noting that the prequels have some hollow characters and moments, but get to piggy back and the meaning put in by the original series. The new movies fail to do that by breaking the continuity entirely

                                  Ever since "The Force Awakens" I've been excited for them to finish this trilogy, not because I think the movies are awesome 10/10's and I wanna see more, not because I think they are stinkers not worth your while so get it over with already, but because I wanna see what they do with the universe without having to live up to the expectations that are built in when you have well known characters! Having all these well known Characters brings certain expectations with them and I wanna see what they do when they don't have any expectations to shackle them and have the writers create new and interesting characters/stories!

                                    The impression I got from the beginning of Force Awakens is that there is a New Republic in control, but there is a significant fascist creep from the First Order that the government is not taking seriously, and that's why Leia started the Resistance. That said, I almost totally agree with you on The Last Jedi stuff; I think it had some of the highest highs in the whole series, and I even liked the Casino scenes for the most part, even though I thought the movie had some issues with the pacing and structural editing in general. But I am really anxious about Episode Nine, because I am afraid JJ is going to double down on all his bullshit mystery boxes, and he's well known for being terrible at ending things.

                                      I really liked this video, Jim. I liked that you were able to state your concerns for the new trilogy going forward while still being able to keep your perspective on what parts of the series so far you do like.

                                          I feel the exact same way about TFA as you do. I loved it at first and then it turned out to be average. Just a fun movie. I don't like TLJ at all. I find nothing redeemable about it. But at the same time, I can see why people would like it and why you hold it with such high praise. The Rise of Skywalker is going to end with Kylo being redeemed and the first entry of The Journal of Whills will be written from the info inside of R2-D2. The words "A long time ago in a galaxy far far away..." will be written and the last shot is going to be R2-D2.

                                              Anyone that doesn't think they ruined Luke Skywalker's character just isn't a fan, at least not one with any intelligence.

                                              People say the movies feel artificial, but really the hate feels artificial. Nerds, in general, like having something to be angry and scream into the void about even if it is their favorite franchise. We see it all the time in Magic. The movies are good, not world shatteringly amazing, but they sure aren't the garbage people would have you believe.

                                              Tl;dr - No one hates Star Wars more than Star Wars fans.

                                                People are just mad that TLJ wasn't the movie THEY wanted. It's fine that they don't like it, but they claim that everything they dislike is "bad writing." Just admit it wasn't for you and move on.

                                              These movies feel a bit too artificial and heartless, like they just wanted to make Star Wars movies, like you said
                                              Also, Rogue one was very good because it had a lot of major character, but only in the background, it only had one lightsaber and no jedis. It was in the same universe, but it was something completely new, without breaking with the established setting

                                                    Its alright. The first act is boring, but the second and third are on par with any of the trilogy movies.

I’m also a very large Marvel fan and a very large Star Wars fan, and I agree a lot with what you said and very much enjoyed hearing it. Let’s hear it about the Marvel series now!

                                                            Hot take: Return of the Jedi is worse than both TFA and TLJ, and it’s treated with kid gloves because it’s part of the original trilogy.

                                                            Everyone throws a fit about the casino scene in TLJ wasting time, while Return of the Jedi is only good for about 30 minutes. The Luke/Vader/Emperor stuff is good, but everything else is just spinning their wheels with lame set pieces.

                                                            Remember how they stop everything in the desert for a pointless music number? Remember how the entire original trilogy ends with a silly dance party? Remember how half the movie was centered on Ewoks? Etc etc

                                                            I agree with a lot of the criticism towards newer Star Wars, but it annoys me when people act like the original trilogy is perfect. RotJ tarnished the series before the prequels/sequels ever did.

                                                            The force awakens was a copy and paste your classmates homework and changing a few answers to make it not completely the same. Tlj was a mess. The scene with leia force pulling herself from the vacuum of space where by all rights should be mush( sorry if I’m being condescending. She should’ve died in that scene or the scene shouldn’t have been there at all) is a travesty. I’ll agree what parts were got about tlj were good. The casino scenes were Garbo, snoke and phasma were both wasted Villains, the Asian girl that falls in love with Finn is a completely unnecessary story arch that takes away from the main one. Yes Han and leia did fall in love in the og trilogy, but that was over the course of all 3, not one movie. In all I’m not a fan of taking risks so much you all but spit in the face of what fans expect from star wars, because then it isn’t Star Wars, it’s just some poorly written with a few good points and modern graphics play set in the most storied universe in movies.

                                                                    - I like the prequels. Grew up with them.
                                                                    - I initially didn't like episodes 7 and 8 at all, and the more I see them, the more I "rationalize" and learn to like them. Seems it went the other way around for you.
                                                                    - I feel no connection at all with Kylo, couldn't care less about what happens to him. Character has no credibility, everything is hard for him, even killing his father was cringy.
                                                                    - Rey, on the other hand, has everything work out too well for her, to the point where it's annoying.
                                                                    - I really care about who is Rey, who is Snoke, etc. and hated when episode 8 just through those questions out of the window one by one.
                                                                    - Instead of talking about big picture stuff, these films are focussing on the measly life of Jedi/Sith wannabes.
                                                                    - I'd like some heavier stuff, maybe a bit of politics, more saber fights, and some work on the damn characters before killing them.
                                                                    "Here's Snoke, he's a pretty mysterious bad guy, look how powerful he is... oh annnnd he's dead now... guess you'll have to settle with Kylo Ren".
                                                                    "Here's Luke, he looked weak and mad, but... surprise ! He's actually so powerful now, look at how he outsmarted the first order... oh wait he's dead too".
                                                                    Maybe I grew and changed what I like in movies, but this had been rather underwhelming for now.

Seriously man, TRoS is our last hope for a good Star Wars movie. A true Star Wars movie. The less of TLJ the better. I have lost more friends to depression because of TLJ than anything else. Take a second look, because the past 23:19 seconds feel like someone stabbing a knife in my back and the back of Star Wars.
