I loved Rogue One. I enjoyed the feel of it, darker, moodier, like Empire. The space battle at the end and the Vader link to A New Hope was epic.
I enjoyed The Force Awakens and liked the new characters despite of some obvious flaws and it basically being copy of A New Hope. I let a lot slide knowing it was trying to reel in a new audience and figured something familiar would appeal to the new and old fans.
But they really sh/t the bed with TLJ. Took George Lucas’s notes and said, thanks, but we know better.
They betrayed the old fans and gave the new fans favoured popcorn, which they ate up like it was a juicy steak. (just as hollywood did for Transformers and every bloody super hero movie of the current age).
They needed the middle film to be the new Empire, that feel (without copying the story like they did with AFA). What we got was seven shades of sh/t.
And then had the nerve to deliver Solo in its current form.
I won’t be spending my hard earned on the final film if that trend continues.
