    Re: Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    I also finally got around to it on Disney+ and it was meh. Wasn't much of a fan of the new trilogy at all. Neither Rey or Kylo ever won me over. Hard to put my finger on it but I was just never sold.

    Rogue One was amazing tho. Jyn was awesome, and K2 and Cassian were both memorable. Krennic was an great villain as well. That movie felt like Star Wars. The new trilogy not so much.

    I also put R1 above the final trilogy. I did like (but didn't love) VII and IX. However, those three films all felt "Disney-fied." I suspect that when you purchase a property for billions of dollars, every decision gets run through a committee, which makes it tend to average rather than exceptional.

    This sums it up for me exactly, except I still haven't bothered to watch Star Wars IX (or Solo).

    Star Wars VII was sort of OK, except I kept having the feeling that I had seen this movie before (back in 1977 when it was just called Star Wars).

    Rogue One was pretty good, though -- as you said, it felt like Star Wars. (The Peter Cushing cameo was a little creepy, though.)

    Star Wars VIII was pretty uninspiring and uneventful for me, and was the film that caused me to finally break away from the franchise. And if you had told me when I was a kid that they would make a full-length feature movie about Han Solo and I wouldn't be interested in seeing it, I would have thought you were crazy.

    As you said, the new trilogy never really felt like Star Wars to me, and I noticed something was wrong almost immediately into my first viewing of Star Wars VII. (I actually saw it twice.) What was it, you might ask? The absence of the 20th Century Fox fanfare. It just didn't feel right -- almost like a disturbance in the Force.
