Star Wars Sequels (21)

Well now that it is all over what did you guys think of the Star Wars sequels? I hated them and in my opinion they make the prequels look better.

VII: derivative garbage, literally just some disney exec saying "let's make some generic hero's journey shit to print money. we'll have a girl and a black dude to fool surface-level observers into thinking it's not a soulless rehash of the original"

VIII: actually took risks (which ended up backfiring) and had an interesting idea or two. tbh i'm still shocked it was even made. however it wasn't set up properly by the prequel and ended up being a muddled mess with a bunch of pointless subplots. if it wasn't star wars it might be remembered as a flawed cult favorite of scifi movie buffs, akin to THX 1138 or something

IX: see VII, except the exec also said "make sure you blatantly retcon everything about VIII that the youtube incels whined about"

it's really hard to say whether the prequels or sequels are better overall. but that's like trying to decide whether dog shit or human shit is better

At least the prequels still had a somewhat cohesive story that is something these sequels do not have.

I always liked the political type in the prequels. Like how it showed how the Empire turned from the Republic to the Empire. Kind of like ancient Rome.

I only saw VII, watched it in theaters.
The first half was pretty standard I'd say, but once those bounty hunters or whatever started going after Han, things started to seem really off to me. With Starkiller base and the unbelievably obvious incoming Han death, I found myself really taken out of it and just uninterested. I didn't give a fuck about Star Wars for years until I replayed Jedi Academy on a whim and realized I still liked the thing.
If nothing else, at least the prequels gave us a very good setting for side material like games, the sequel trilogy doesn't come close to it in that regard. It doesn't help that licensed video games are largely dead now.

I pretty much feel the same way.

I never got why the I–III was supposedly worse than IV–VI — I thought it was better.

Rather, I felt that the new trilogy went back to the first one with many of it's flaws. At least the second trilogy had a somewhat interesting political narrative going on, in showing how much the republic was failing under it's own weight and how it's fall was partly caused by the dogmatic Jedi who failed to see what was onder their noses.

It would've been cool for me if the dialog was more refined. Or if the cinematography was better. It's either boring with long dialog scenes where they're only walking and talking. That or completely bizarre like any scene involving Anakin.

Well i mean that was kinda the point. Qui-Gon-Jinn was the last true jedi and the jedi during the prequel era had lost their way and got caught up in politics also jedi are somewhat based off of monks i believe. George Lucas is great at world building coming up with new ideas but he needs help with writing and story which is why i think the prequels have a lot of great ideas but lack in good execution. But lets be honest they are still better than the new Disney movies that is for sure.
