So, a couple of weeks ago I watched Rogue One, quite liked it. Annoyingly the theater had a fire alarm 5 minutes before the end and I missed the ending, which I then watched on youtube (like you do).  I'm not really a Star Wars nerd - i'd seen all the films once, and only once and basically know the pop culture references and that's it.  Having enjoyed Rogue One my wife and I watched the original trilogy which was good fun.

 

We them made the mistake of deciding to watch the prequels to complete the set and Phantom Menace is utterly unwatchable. Literally, couldn't make my way through it. I thought perhaps time has been kind, and she has not. The kid playing Annakin is horrendously bad, whilst the less said about Jar-Jar and the 'Herrro' Asian aliens the better.  Christ.

 

There's no point other than complaining about how utterly terrible Phantom Menace was.  Who knew a movie that starts with a scroll talking about trade federations would be terminally dull, eh?

Ahhh, my goodly Herr, you are incorrigible. In my youth, I remember thinking "fuck, these flicks are good. Laser swords, telekinesis, fucking yesssss!" but I admit, when I look back at them now, I am shocked at how they totally don't hold up for me anymore beyond the comedic aspects of it because hot damn, there's some shit in that shit. For everything else, there's MST3King.

 

And yes. Episode 1. All the hate. The fire rages on! and so forth.

I dislike them all, but I don't dislike them equally. Rogue one was tolerable in a generic unnecessary kind of way. Phantom Menace was next for me in watchability. It was the movie most free of the shadow of the franchise.

Personally, I think we should all just watch Spaceballs and be done with it

I haven't seen Rogue One yet. Didn't really like the last one, went to see it and can't even remember the name of it, just that the casting was a bit more diverse. Some middle-aged hipster dude, quite possibly an MRA disguted by the casting, walked out in the middle of the film, which I thought was funny.

I liked the Force Awakens, it worked on a second viewing as well.  Also Emo Kylo Ren on Twitter kept me entertained for quite some time.

Rogue One was pretty good, except with the scene where Vader force-choked that dude. Worst acting ever.

I love the Robot Chicken bit about Darth Vader's choking ability... 'He thinks he can choke us with his mind, so just play along....'
 
 
The problems I have with Star Wars come from thinking too logically, which is not the point of the film, they're fantasy.  Why do the Jedi effectively have swords?  Why does everyone else use ppew-ppew guns whose lasers travel slow enough you can see them, as opposed to bang-bang guns with bullets? Do you know how quick the uprising would have been over with just a couple of snipers in Endor?
 
All that aside, the camp fun of it all makes it ok (excluding the prequels).

And why are the feared Empire's Storm Troopers so badly trained that they can't hit anything? And why didn't they give Princess Leia a light sabre in the first trilogy? She was clearly a Jedi too, if it's been passed on to the new awful child villain. 

 

Yeah I didn't like the Force Awakens one. Basically a remake of Episode 4. Apart from having a defector, they couldn't be bothered to think of a plot.

Love the original trilogy. As far as the prequels go, the only one that I have watched again in full is EP3. Rogue One was killer, and wasn't a fan of the new numbered one

This whole place is one giant piece of fluff.  Which is good because I like fluffy.
