i think my real issue is that while plot details of the new trilogy are worthy of complaint, the prequels have some truly inept actual filmmaking that i cant look past in comparison

i do this solely because dooku is my favorite character so the prequel that features him gets the nod

 

revenge and attack are both about as crappy as each other on all other counts

Haven't even seen the new one, but definitely think that Attack of the Clones and the Phantom Menace are not that bad, esp Phantom is fairly alright and self contained.  The internet hatewagon is by far the most exaggerated circlejerk I've ever seen anywhere.

 

TLJ is honestly my favourite and the one I enjoyed the most by far.  Even though it had the worst scenes in the entire series and some serious plot holes,  it also had some of the best scenes by undermining expectations of what would happen if this was play by play Star Wars film.  

 

Rogue One was pretty great.

 

Force Awakens being reheated New Hope is worse than anything any of the other films have done.  By far my least liked unless you somehow watch it without seeing New Hope first, then it's an amazing film.

i dont necessarily agree with all these takes but i def get where youre coming from with all of em

 

the internet hatewagon is as overblown as most hatewagons - a lot of people focus on 'this decision doesnt make sense' or similar and that's there, but even with willing suspension of disbelief too much of the movie is just crap in any dialogue scene - even ignoring the writing and acting its always shot/reverse shot on a couch or walking in a hallway. Also the greenscreen sets I think made it harder for the world to feel 'alive' and be interacted with

obi wan and qui gon should have been combined in to a single character called obi wan

maybe with the 'skywalker saga' ended they can actually make fun movies in the setting with original characters. You know, like the original trilogy
