It was ok. Many WTF moments, especially in the third act. I got a little verklempt once. All I'll say for now.
They haven't really said what Feige is going to do, apart from he is interested in producing "a film", or something to that effect.W/re to TFA and TLJ, I'll take your word for it. I watched the former three times and each viewing was less enjoyable than the prior. I came out of TLJ underwhelmed and... Revulsion is probably too strong a word, but close to that. I simply can't watch it again, I hated it that much.
I guess Kevin Feige is taking over the property? I love what he did with the first couple phases of the MCU and became less impressed with the more recent outings. Favreau is doing a great job with The Mandalorian and there's talk that he might direct and/or produce the next cycle in the SW franchise.
I'm teetering on R1 being my favorite also. I love everything about that movie: Jen Erso's character, knowing she's on a suicide mission, a phenomenal villian in Krennic, the grittiness of battle, the rebel soldiers knowing they're on a one-way trip, the complete destruction of Blue Squadron, the HammerHead Corvette. It's the whole package. Dammit Disney...you had a gem with this movie.Rogue One is possibly my favorite Star Wars film, might have to watch it again soon.
That's just it, for me -- it teeters on greatness but never actually tips over into it.I'm teetering on R1 being my favorite also.

but at least the space horses weren’t as bad as I was expecting.
(but the pointy stabby thing had the thing that let her see the specific thing on the thing where the thing was)
The movie was enjoyable. Sure, it had some annoying plot points (like why even bother have the pointy stabby thing that they kept looking for. Could he not remember what was inscribed?), but still was a fun movie to be entertained with. The humor was enough, and not overpowering.
ROTJ was on TV this morning, briefly caught the scene where Leia first meets an Ewok. IX really felt weird because it lacked these character development pauses, too many action sequences rapidly strung together.It was like being shoved through a movie with an occasional punch in the face of nostalgia but no time to enjoy it before being shoved forward again.
I took my older kids, 10 (boy) and 8 (girl). SW has been a part of my life for 30 years, since I was about 6 years old. I'll admit it was somewhat emotional to have it all come back around and end with my kids by my side. They loved it and I thought it was great. Rushed? Sure. But they loved it and I think in turn I enjoyed it even more. It is not a piece of cinema that will be revered through time, but it made me smile multiple times and my jaw dropped once or twice.After time to digest, I think when I see it again with my kids I’ll enjoy it more.
