Just a quick post as I watch “Rouge One,” the best Star Wars film to date. The Prequiles lacked good direction and had poor dialogue. Though “Revenge of the Sith” was better than the first two. They are enjoyable. “A New Hope” was a great story and, despite (again) poor direction for the actors was a ground-breaking film in its time. The following two of the middle trilogy were worthy films with much better direction. George Lucus is imaginative as hell but couldn’t dialogue his way out of a wet paper bag.
The third trilogy films had excellent acting. But they had inconsistent stories between them. And “The Force Awakens” was derivative. It was just lazy writing. While most die-hard Star Wars fans hate “The Last Jedi,” as did some of the actors, I found it to be the strongest of the last three. The loss of faith Luke experiences is relatable. As is his finding it. Plus, it was nice to see Yoda. “The Rise of Skywalker” didn’t suck, but it also suffered from lazy writing. Plus, the title makes no sense whatsoever.
