      >visually it's a nice movie

      All of the real sets are nice, but the excessive use of 90s CG makes so many scenes look incredibly ugly and fake. The juxtaposition is actually pretty jarring.

        If you are watching the terrible bluray scan, but if you are watching it on film stock it looks great, there's occasionally janky bits, the jar jar fight at the end is bad, but other stuff is surprisingly good

            So you are saying I am watching a better version at home than what people paid for, my 35mm eurorip has some dirt and specs but it looks nice otherwise.

      Why must everyting be shitty or the best film ever though. The Phantom Menace was always a decent 6 or 7 if you really love it.

        people can only think hyperbolically. the prequels are pretty mid with some goofy dialog and crappy cg, but they're not these utterly unforgivable catastrophes where watching them makes it so that george lucas gets a time machine and violently ass-rapes you as a child while doing a jar-jar voice that people make them out to be

    This happened before in the 90s when the special editions of the OT got theatrical releases. Seeing a New Hope on the big screen was totally radical, dude.

            I can never see the porthole, no matter how much it's pointed out . She has a seriously nice pussy unless that leggings cameltoe is shopped.

            I usually just cum to her fat ass cheeks, I can never tell if the hole is a shadow

    There is an entire Chud movement dedicated to trying to prove that modern Hollywood is finished and people only care about old movies now so they try to achieve that by paying Disney to watch to the worst Star Wars movie ever made

      to be fair you could rerelease all Star Wars movies every couple years in the months of Jan-May and they would dominate almost all the time

          They don't just pick a number out of a hat anon, you wouldn't only re-release Episode 8 unless it's an anniversary. Sorry the movie has made you this butthurt 8 years later. Granted it's the best movie.

              They didn't rerelease the phantom menace in 2009 for it's 10th. Mark Hamill's best acting performance is in TLJ.

    Lots of kids never got see the movies on the big screen, but they grew up with all the movies, shows, and games. Starwars used to have an incredibly long tail as interested kids grew into paying customers. Disney has wrecked this, the new movies don't appeal to kids so the setup never happened, toys and games set in Disney-verse are poison. Disney used to be the king of pipelining kids into customers, but they fricked everything recent up by trying to steer the audience instead of visa versa. Big D is trying to dictate what people like, and people aren't impressed.
