Discuss Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Can't say I liked the film but I didn't hate it either. It meant nothing to me for whatever reason. Not sure if it was the Star Wars fatigue that hit me or that nothing extraordinary happens in the The Rise of Skywalker but I left the theater feeling a tad empty. One thing that I dislike in films in general is a lack of consequence and this film was full of it. The amount of Deus Ex Machina is appalling. Will write up a post on it later this month if I end up watching it again. But now to my ranking of every official, live-action SW film ever made:

  1. The Empire Strikes Back
  2. Rogue One
  3. The Last Jedi
  4. Return of the Jedi
  5. Solo: A Star Wars Story
  6. Revenge of the Sith
  7. The Rise of Skywalker
  8. The Force Awakens
  9. A New Hope
  10. The Phantom Menace
  11. Attack of the Clones

I won't be seeing this one and didn't see Solo either but current thoughts on the others would be:-

  1. Star Wars
  2. Empire Strikes Back
  3. Return of the Jedi
  4. Revenge of the Sith
  5. Attack of the Clones
  6. The Force Awakens
  7. The Last Jedi
  8. The Phantom Menace
  9. Rogue One

Actually rewatched AOTC last night and asides from "I hate sand", the Anakin / Padme love scenes, well I guess Hayden Christensen's acting in general, all the awful cgi - Dexter's 50s Diner, Kamino, etc (which leaves Euan McGregor not knowing where to look) and the Chicken Run scene it's actually quite good fun.

The end. Oops, hold on a tic...

Re: "live action film" stipulation

  • Clone Wars isn't live action, but it's so good it deserves a pass - far better than the woeful PT.

  • The Mandalorian isn't a "film" (although, if you binge-watch it, it's pretty much all the same), but it's gorgeously shot, delightfully written and directed, and deftly acted. It may be the best live action SW installment since RotJ and is arguably the best shot SW installment of all time. Yep, I said it, check it out and tell me otherwise!

  10. Ewoks- Battle for Endor
  11. Star Wars Holiday Special- never seen it but my worst imaginings of it are still better than...
  12. The Phantom Menace

Haven't seen The Rise of Skywalker and I'm in no rush to see it, I'm beyond caring after The Last Jedi. I'm far more intrigued by The Mandolorian.

  1. Empire Strikes Back

  2. Star Wars

  3. Return of the Jedi

  4. Rogue One

  5. The Rise of Skywalker

  6. The Force Awakens

  7. The Last Jedi

  8. Revenge of the Sith

  9. The Phantom Menace

  10. Attack of the Clones

I haven't seen the Han Solo movie, and have no wish to; in fact I am now done with Star Wars. There has been some great film-making in this series-- and quite a bit not-so-great, especially from #6 onward above, in my humble opinion --but for me 42 years of this franchise is enough, and I'm done.
