Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
« on: January 05, 2020, 06:06:18 PM »
Alright... who has seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?   I thought it was by far the best of the last 3 trilogy... but also... probably one of the better Star Wars movies ever made... rivaling Rogue One.

Without providing spoilers at this time... I'm curious how this movie held up for everyone that has seen it.  Post up your thoughts and opinions of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

There were a few things that I would have done differently, but, it did a good job of tying the loose ends from The Last Jedi and went a long way to correcting complaints many had about that movie.

It was solid.  I especially like the array of light sabers that make appearances in the movie.  >:D

I saw it on Xmas day. I personally enjoyed it, though I honestly didn't have super high expectations going in. I was entertained and I thought the ending was appropriate.

I saw it twice. I liked it and I agree that it was better than the last two. I think it was about the best they could do to salvage the series.

I'm mostly disappointed that they had sooo much good material they could have used in the old canon and they went this direction though.  They could have used SOME of it. The whole series could have been a Yuuzhan Vong invasion.

There is just so much material in the Star Wars cannon now.  I am glad that The Mandolorian is happening.  The Clone Wars and Rebels are my favorite parts of the series currently since both series really give time to appreciate stories within the universe.

I've preordered whatever fancy steel book exclusive BestBuy has (and considering target's exclusive) but I've not gone to see it in theaters, and surprisingly nothing has been spoiled. I've resisted the temptation to watch easter egg youtube videos, read online reviews, or even talk to friends about it. When it comes out Ima crank the home theater up to obnoxious neighbor level and enjoy it despite being slightly disappointed it wasn't as good as Empire...
