I think Rogue One is a genuinely bad film. Wonderful production design, but it takes forever to tell a story that doesn't need to be told AT ALL, and does it in a really uninvolving, boring manner. It's just so flat. There is nothing to Jyn Erso or Cassian Andor or any of the others.

The prequels may have been as dumb as a plank of wood at times, and a big letdown for the most part, but they did have the occasional spark in them. The Emperor was able to be gloriously evil. Compare that with Crennic's dull floundering. Even Annakin's whiny dick-headeness was preferable to Jyn Erso's nothingness.

To totally steal the words of the New Yorker magazine, Rogue One's script has 'all the emotional impact of a checklist or a call sheet.'

I dare anybody to try and figure out the timelines and character aging and what not of those X-Men movies. What a hot mess!

As for SW I was 12 when it first showed, and I agree with JB, it just had not been seen before. The impact would last for a couple of years with my trading cards and figures.Then ESB started to be promoted and I tossed aside the first movie in anticipation. The newness would be gone forever from then on.

A lot of fan and news sites are trying to portray Hamill as disgruntled,
but given the praise he offers Rian Johnson in other interviews, I don't
think that's the case at all.

Hmm.  I have a bad feeling they're gonna do a weird little flip by EPISODE IX, where you think it's going to be an epic showdown between Luke and Kylo Ren... but Luke somehow has turned to the Dark Side, and Kylo Ren is the one looking for redemption, and ends-up being the hero by the finale?

Hmm.

Don't know about Luke turning to the Dark Side(even though that is a possibility, as with Rey as well) but yeah, Kylo is going to turn good at some point in the trilogy.  There's been way to many hints in The Force Awakens, alone.

God, I hope not. There is NO coming back from killing Han Solo.

Well, given the body count Vader racked up over 18 years before his redemption, wouldn't be surprised if Kylo gets turned back to the light in Episode 9...
