2. The Rise of Skywalker

Come at me. As for The Mandalorian, I flipping love it! I grew up on old Western cowboy movies (mostly John Wayne and Clint Eastwood) so this being basically made in the same style as those older suspenseful standoff movies has been especially fun for me.

Can I just express my sadness for this placement without having the intention of trying to argue with you about it? xD

You may, that is your right! I've discovered I love star wars for very different reasons than most. I love it for the sith/jedi conflict and the politics. The Darth Bane and Thrawn Trilogies are my favorite Star Wars stories because of that. 

Rise of Skywalker had fun new force abilities, dove deep into the ancient sith (which I loved reading about and learning about in Darth Bane trilogy and Knights of the Old Republic games and books), made Rey a huge somebody and not some loser nobody, displayed the full range of Adam Driver's emotional capabilities, had glorious battles, brought back fan favorite characters, did not insult the fan base like The Last Jedi did, had Luke do some extraordinary intragalatic force projection, brought back the concept of Essence Transfer first established by Darth Bane (who also established the rule of two concept), had sith holocrons and other artifacts. Honestly if they brought Hayden Christensen back in the flesh it may be my favorite ever. It's like someone at Disney made every decision in The Last Jedi to make me hate it and in the final film basically every decision to cater to what I would want.
