eh. I have been pretty happy with both SW movies they have put out. Both of which are better than anything since ESB by a longshot.

Could they have been better, sure. But I still enjoyed them a lot. 

I love how Jedi is still treated as the black sheep of the OT after all these years, yet it's still light years better than anything SW related that came after it INCLUDING A New Hope Redux, aka The Force Awakens.

Jedi also got tons of crap for introducing annoying side characters (Ewoks) and rehashing the Death Star plotline from the original film, then comes along the new trilogy which does all that yet again, this time with a bigger, badder Death Planet (that can still be destroyed in pretty much the same method) and Porgs!  I haven't even seen the new movie and already I hate those things!

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

lol, sure, why not? Star Wars is the new Police Academy.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

Yeah it is now the edgy thing to pretend like 6 is on the same level as 7 or 3 or some shit. It's not. It's just a worse film than the first two.

Jedi has issues far beyond Ewoks or Death Star 2. The Jabba palace stuff is pretty cringy except for the escape scene, Ford pretty much phones in the entire performance. Don't get me wrong, I like the movie, but I place it behind IV, V, III, and VII and probably Rogue 1. To me it is 3rd worst, EP 1 and 2 are below it.



End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

I never said those were it's only issues. I agree.

For me Star Wars is an event I'd love to have every year!

Makes sense.
2017 -8
18- solo
19-9
20- kenobi or "Jar Jar Binks & Boss Nass Adventures"
21 part 1 new trilogy
22 solo 2 or other spinoff like "Tschubaka & Ewoks Adventures"
23 part 2 new trilogy
24 spinoff- solo2, 3 or kenobi 2 or "The Private Life Of Emperor Palpatine"
25 part 3 new trilogy

I figured they would introduce a new trilogy, almost certainly a prequel one, I had really hoped it would be Kotor or bane related. Doing this allows them to take a break from the main saga for 7-10 years.

You're not alone. I remember the announcement of the Star Wars prequels filled me with such joy. Now this announcement fills me with contempt. 

I really don't know what's worse: three shitty prequels in six years, or one mediocre, designed-by-committee Star Wars spin-off every year until we're all dead.

So the next 5 unreleased films + spin-offs are all mediocre designed-by-committee? dunno seems to me you just weren't a fan of JJ's version. Plus stop pretending the originals were better than they were, 2 of the 3 films weren't even good in the OG Trilogy!

Bleh, this is so disappointing. Talk about Star Wars fatigue...

I had hoped they'd at least take a breather, maybe give it a decade before the next trilogy. And a TV Show? Fuck that.

Why is the TV show a bad idea? They've pretty much had a TV show on air for Star Wars since 2003. It's hardly anything new

No, I am a fan of The Force Awakens. I'd rank only A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back above it. TFA is more consistent than Return of the Jedi, which starts strongly but sputters in its second and third acts.

If the next 47 Star Wars movies prove to be great, then I'll gladly eat crow. However, based on Disney's track record with cinematic universes I expect a whole lot of movies that are either passable or workshopped within an inch of their lives, or both. Disney has a way of gentrifying, homogenizing, and serializing its properties -- something I'd rather not happen to Star Wars.

I'm trying not to be one of those guys but I remember when Star Wars was an event. Something special. Now we're getting a new one every ten minutes. If Christmas comes every week, it quits being important.

Christmas comes once a year and is very special, why can't Star Wars too.

I think Disney has handled many of its properties very well. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, as a whole is fine -I agree, and even bland. But when they do well it's definitely something worth seeing. For example their handling of the Captain America movies have been good. The GotG movies are consistent.. however, I agree the GotG (and new Thor)'s style definitely is not the template I want Star Wars to adopt going forward
