what a awful take.

both have made over a billion dollars worldwide (with TFA grossing 2 billion dollars and is the highest grossing american film). the only financial stumble was the solo movie.

also. they make more money on merchandising than they do the movies. has been true since the beginning of star wars.

i love that suddenly 40 years into a franchise its now 'creatively bankrupt'

Star Wars? Who cares? Dead Franchise run down by Disney. Plus look at all the Chinese posters taking off any minority. Thanks Disney, you sure have a lot of bootlickers left to watch your garbage.
I've been off for a while, but always fun to come back to this guy's hot takes. Scorchingly original.

Billions of people care? LOL. I doubt that. If billions of people care, then the movies revenue wouldn't be on a downward slope. Every new movie makes less than before. Creatively bankrupt. No clue how to make engaging characters. Rey is a Mary Sue.
lol, even more . . . there's them coloreds in it too, amiright?

You or anyone can dislike the new stuff, I'm fine with that (totally disagree, but I'm fine with it) but couching it in such boring and regurgitated terms like "Rey is a Mary Sue" and it's "trying hard to be so woke" as Ninja did is just laughable because it's just so predictable.

I'd say fourth, but I can see arguments for third. Its got a ton of small flaws, but the parts that are good are so good that they completely outweigh the "bad."

its the best since empire.

and has so much to say about the force, why these stories are important, and how the notion of fate and legacy can be viewed through many prisms.

also, kylo ren is a better villian in 2 movies than the emperor is in 5.

agreed; I just put Rogue One ahead of it generally in my list.

Empire
New Hope
Rogue One
Last Jedi

rogue one is a fine action film. but has little going on if you pull back the curtain.
