The novelization of 9 came out and Palpatine is a clone and Rey is the daughter of a Palpatine clone that wasn't powerful enough of a host destroyed and he cloned again. Or so I was told.

The spin offs were fine. Han was ok but Rogue One was absolutely good.

Yup, never saw Solo but Rogue One was better than any of 7-9.

I agree but just wanted to point it out so as not to confuse the original trilogy with this slop.

I would like to jump in a few months later just to say once again that episode 9 is an absolute travesty of a movie and that it is my least favourite bit of Star Wars media by a huge amount. Give me the befuddling Christmas Special over the outlandishly long list of horrible and stupid shit that happens in 9.

Rey Skywalker

That's all anyone needs to say about the movie.

That whole trilogy ruined Star Wars for me. I have zero desire to ever watch SW again.

I agree. It's bothersome to watch the prequels, but it downright hurts to watch the sequels.

What's your favorite movie universe?

Alien or Riddick I'm thinking

Remind me of the a list that either Metacritic or RT put about best rated movie franchises.

I agree with their top pick and think it applies here: Mad Max.

I will give Alien credit for still being intriguing after being watered down.

I rewatched ep 9 recently and I agree with the awfulness consensus. The prequels were terrible to start and kind of managed to stop the downward spiral. The sequels started off alright by rehashing what worked originally. The second had parts that showed a glimmer of hope, then trash with it. The third went off the rails.

Rogue One and the Mandalorian however show that there is room in the universe for good movies. Outside of the main series is a good place, where there isn't too much worry about general canon. I mean Rogue One was good regardless if I never saw a single Bothan.

Filoni and Favreau get Star Wars.

MCU is great, and can be really refreshed when X-Men and F4.

I'd probably say that Mad Max is the best, but the Ridleyverse could be pretty epic if they were able to connect the whole thing while course correcting some of the pure shit it's produced.

The prequels are so lifeless that I can't into it. Joking about it online is one thing but watching them is terrible. The sequels fail in their own spectacular way but I can at least find some things enjoyable about them.

The gap between the original trilogy and any other star wars movie is so damn huge.

There is plenty of room in that universe for fun interesting movies if Disney allows writers to have some fun. Just get me away from Skywalkers and Palpatines.

Star Wars still has to be my favorite film universe. That universe spawned KOTOR which I loved. Nostalgia absolutely plays a huge roll but I also love the original trilogy. Ultimately I think we are going to end up with some really great Star Wars stuff. It may take some time though it does seem like they are finally now giving the reigns to the right people.

There are plenty of really talented filmmakers who grew up imagining what they'd do with Star Wars. There is a super rich ext ended universe to pull from. There are near endless possibilities. I'm really excited to see Taika unleashed and making Star Wars stuff. Let the creatives play. I mean at this point we've had six kinda shit movies and Star Wars is still around. I'd so much rather watch someone take a swing and miss than make a safe movie.

This is the right take. The X-Men in particular not being part of the MCU has been a travesty.

Bothan spies were responsible for the 2nd Death Star in ROTJ.
