TLJ, while having its stupid moments, at least wasn’t so rehashed that it felt like I was watching a bootleg version of the movie it’s clearly ripping off. The Force awakens was a New Hope, and TRoS was a mutated return of the Jedi.
Absolutely not. TLJ is a bootleg version of The Empire Strikes Back with elements of Return of the Jedi. It's plain as day, and there's even more things it ripped off.
While I respect your opinion I disagree with it.
Issues I had with TLJ:
-the out of place humour
-4th wall breaking jokes
-General Hux's cartoonish incompetence
-the horrific space tactics
-massive plot holes
-the reveals all being "oh ok, well that was underwhelming"
-Rey's severe lack of character development
-Finn's severe lack of character development
-Snoke being a waste of time, the slowest chase scene since Speed 2: Cruise Control
-the National Lampoon's Casino Planet vacation during the chase
-Phasma jobbing again
-the new hyperspace mcguffin
-the fact if you skipped this movie the only thing you will miss is that Kylo Ren is no longer the apprentice big bad he is now the big bad, but considering the "big bad" was only this mysterious intriguing shadowy villain that they were building up in the first one and Kylo was the actual big bad in that one then even that hasn't changed.
Finn is the biggest waste in the film. He went from arguably being the real protagonist in Force Awakens to being an irrelevant side plot that had it's actual resolution left on the cutting room floor in the sequel.
I can't help but feel this was bait, what with the driveby comment and no followup. Anyway:
I’m not super active here.
Then I apologise for the accusation
Every single individual frame of the Disney Wars garbage was an ass-aids-sandwich. There is no need to defend that. They were, unbelievably, even worse than the prequels.
Most of it felt like nostalgia bait.
The first trilogy is the only one worth watching.
The only decent Disney Star Wars movie is Rouge One.
For what its worth Solo wasn't a bad movie, but it didn't need to exist and ruined some of Han's character.
The entire sequel trilogy is nostalgia driven garbage.
All three are decent or good movies if you overlook the shitty behavior of their creators...but they fit together like absolute ass and form a narratively and thematically incoherent whole.
