      It doesn't help that since the first Disney sequel, Disney has kept churning out continuous Star Wars garbage to this day, that typically connects back to their sequels. There's no been break in the stream of diarrhea. And it's all low effort diarrhea. Force Awakens just hit it all off. If Disney had released their sequel trilogy and left it alone for a while most likely you'd have more genuine ppl popping up saying you know they weren't so bad, etc.

      This is bullshit. It sank any chance of the rest of Disney's movies being any good literally within the intro crawl.
      TFA's only purpose was to be ANH again. In order to do this it shat all over everything from the original trilogy, both in the in-universe sense of "all that sacrifice and strife was for nothing, we're back to square one and everything is exactly the same" and the meta sense of characters we followed and cared about being destroyed to pave the way for their new rebranded Disney versions.
      Setting everything up to be nu-Empire vs nu-Rebels starting on nu-Tatooine with nu-Luke blowing up the nu-Death Star was completely inexcusable. It could not possibly have been executed well, and they didn't even live up to that shit potential.

    Idk, do today's generation of boys (who are going to grow up and be the standard bearers) prefer Darth Maul/Anakin, Darth Vader, or Kylo Ren? This is critical. As far as I can tell the ST was created for middle aged women and didn't stick with the core demographic of somewhat autistic boys ages 4-16.

They torpedoed their animated movies, Star Wars, and Marvel in under a decade.

        Now, I'd say that if Rise of Skywalker didn't walk back on 90% of what Rian Johnson did with TLJ, there'd be a chance for a "the sequels were actually good" scene to grow, but it's anything potentially interesting or meta proposed by RJ has been conveniently squashed out by IX.

        It's also why they like the sequel movies in the first place. I'd wager a lot of sequel fans would have turned on TLJ after the shill hype wore off, but by that point they had already established the narrative that anyone who hated it was an evil enemy and they were no longer allowed to associate themselves with that side. RoS caused a hilarious divide by "betraying" TLJ because it forced sequel apologists to decide between their loyalty to Disney or their loyalty to the culture battle they themselves invented in order to defend Disney.

    It's true. I use to dislike the prequels way back when. Over time they wormed into my brain. Somehow I had to watch them once every year. When those scenes keep popping up in my head, there's a good reason for that. Because Lucas knows what he's doing, backed up by experience and vast knowledge. Then look at who works at Disney.

Who gives a shit how this or that line is delivered or how polished this scene looks if you're going to watch once and forget.

    The prequels have legitimately interesting stories and characters, just terrible scripts. If you can forgive the banal dialogue the world building is solid because in the end it was still one man's vision. That's actually why the dialogue is so banal. Because it was a product of Lucas and his autism all the way, for better or worse. Mostly better, as we've come to realize. He sat on the world's most valuable IP for 15 fricking years until he could tell the story he wanted to tell. Sperg though he was, he was also a visionary. This shit had been kicking around in his head for decades.

    The Disney movies exist just to exist. They wanted to cash in so they just wrote lazy and derivative plots so they could run in circles. The rebellion is still fighting the empire because that's what happened in the first movies. Rey is a Jedi with secret lineage because that's what happened to Luke. Kylo Ren turns to the dark side because that's what happened to Vader. Palpatine returns for the final confrontation because that's how ROTJ ended. The only original ideas were all in The Last Jedi and those consisted of mostly wiping their ass with he lore and giving characters no one liked more screentime. So the parts that weren't derivative were either boring or a slap in the face to fans. There's no *artistic* reason for the sequels to exist. They're just product. Homogenized, made by committee, safe, predictable, lame.

                Basically, shit needs to happen in order for the plot to move forward so it does. Sure, there are lots of nonsensical plot holes but this is low-hanging fruit that has been done to death (basically cheap YouTube style criticism). The deeper problem is that the plot isn't being driven by characters in something that has the pretense of being a tragedy; tragedy is specifically character driven as far as that genre goes. You end up with simplistic moron takes from the characters while the plot happens to them and them making decisions that are kind of stupid because the plot simply needs to happen.

            truth to be told s3 is not the worst thing ever, but like season 7 of walking dead you'll realize almost every episode is irrelevant and does nothing to further advance the plot, it's mostly side quests. the single worst episode is the one that has jack black, lizzo & christopher lloyd in it, that's episode 4 or 5 i forget which. but if the mando movie does poorly at the box office you'll know why.

    prequel fans do go apeshit when you criticise them, although part of that is due to most of the criticisms missing the point or ignoring the parts which make the prequels good, i.e. the lore, worldbuilding and vision. There's a presumption in the criticism that what they say is true before anyone can even respond, which is annoying for anything.
    Also think a part of it is because of the plinkett reviews and people had to repress their feelings and pretend to hate the prequels

    Crazy how people in the past said the prequels were the greedy cashgrabs and then got shown what actual greedy cashgrabs look like. The prequel trilogy is actually telling a story and enhances the OT, and that whole era is much deeper engrained in the fanbase due to a frick ton of multimedia set during it. Sequels are all over the place and there's barely any multimedia supporting that era because it does not spark imagination. My cousin who is 14 as I asked “what’s your favorite Star Wars” said Revenge of the Sith, and she’s watched all 9.

      funny as my 16yo cousin watched all 9 back when the sequels were coming out (granted she was like 7 at the time) and stopped giving a shit after rise, she found stranger things to be more her niche and in general is more into horror scifi rather than scifi fantasy

      Just because the sequels are greedy cashgrabs doesn't mean the prequels aren't.

      the prequels are merch cash-grabs propped up by decent toy commercials, whereas the sequels are shitty toy commercials with shitty merch. every sequel alien, planet, ship, and/or gun is just derivative of something from the ot and when there is an actually new design it's just thing + basic cover or attachment to make it look different, and even then there's the fricking space AKs in blandor.

      TFA, R1 & TLJ all were battling each other for the new favorite, solo was given mid reviews so never anyone's favorite but it was generally put above tfa, and all were put above TROS. in the years since most have reorganized their lists to put TFA & TROS at rock bottom with the d+ shows just above, whereas their top ten consists of reordering 1-6 with rogue, solo and maybe tlj sandwiched in as well.

Places like krayt and gamingcirclejerk are the epitome of culture war brainrot (shilling for corps to own anti-woke tards like Quarterpounder) to the point that most libs and leftists would be baffled.

    Actually I think it's going to get even worse for the sequels.
    Once George Lucas dies, there's going to be a massive increase in the fondness for his six SW movies, especially with the realization that he will never make one again.
    You're gonna see the prequels become even more revered, the sequels be disregarded even more, and Disney is gonna get shit on even harder.
    Remember that great artists are never fully appreciated when they are alive. Yes Lucas is appreciated now but not FULLY, so I predict the appreciation with launch into the stratosphere.

        Prequelgays are some of the dumbest people you'll find on the internet. You'll notice that they'll say shit they have no idea about (e.g. "allegory of the Roman Empire" or "Aristotelian structure"). The reason for this is that people used to mock the prequels by pretending they had depth and prequelgays didn't get the irony. They'll parrot stuff they have absolutely no clue about simply because they think these poorly written CG cartoon movies are high art. It's pretty hilarious.

        >Lucas is a master of multi-layered storytelling and this has to be taken into account when viewing the prequels. Just look at this scene--its short but there is so much going on! You have to understand how this scene on an archetypical level--the natural nature of digestion vs. power draining machines. But there's still so much more. You see, in the EU it's explained that this animal is actually owned by a man named Zeeboo Beeboo who had been misfeeding it prior to the events we see in TPM. Coincidentally--he looks a little like Jar Jar and therefore, via this subtle foreshadowing via flatulence, we see the revolutionary embers that will spark the fire of a rebellion (what a set up!). But wait, there's even more at work here! What can be interpreted as a simple fart joke is actually a direct echo of Luke/Leia's incestuous kiss (you have to be familiar with Ring theory to truely understand this). But given the archetypal nature/machine dichotomy and the hidden performative protest of the animal's fart, which deftly signals to the audience the coming of rebellion, we see the brother/sister kiss as the symbolic act of defiance against a hegemonic empire! Remember that scene where Jar Jar stepped in poo-poo? Foreshadowing of the trouble to come. BRAVO LUCAS!

    10 years later people were already saying that ROTS was a good movie. That hasn’t happened for any sequel movie.

    That won´t happen. People won´t change their minds this time around because it´s not the same. You see, quality discussion aside, fans have come to understand that despite all their failings the prequels are still unequivocally Star Wars movies that aimed to contribute to what Star Wars was.

    There is a respect for the original themes, narrative tone and overall visual aesthetic and a the will to expand on the established universe and flesh out important characters. Even if it´s a hit and a miss the heart was on the right place.

    Comparatively the Disney movies were explicitly made to take from the work of better more creative people in order to make their own thing. Furthermore when they realized their endeavor was mediocre at it´s best they proceeded to undermine all the achievements of the iconic characters, undo all their victories and reduce them to nothingness. All this, in a vain attempt to make their own characters look less forgettable in comparison.

    And if that wasn´t enough the movies are really really bad even as self contained not SW media. So no, it´s not happening.

        he also sold because he wanted to do more experimental projects which he knew would make money.

It will never not be funny that prequelgays somehow take solace in the fact the greedy creator of their beloved franchise sold it out so a shitty company could kill it. Lol

    in response to making fun of the prequels, prequelgays manufactured an alternate reality where youtubers realigned universal public opinion against the prequels.

    Do the sequels even have fans? They seem completely forgotten at this point. Seems like the Mandalorian had more cultural staying power than all 3 of those movies combined.

      The main reason the prequels are remembered is that they're fun to shit on.

        Sure but I barely remember anything from the sequels and I've watched them more recently than the prequels. I remember Starkiller base, Holdo maneuver, Leia being ejected in space, Yoda's ghost burning books, and Palpatine somehow creating thousands of fully manned and operable star destroyers out of nowhere. Even if the prequels are a boring slog, at least they aren't completely forgettable.

        They really aren't. The best SW media created in the past decade are people shitting on Disney corporate incompetence and asking how it all wen so wrong. The films themselves are unwatchable and devoid of substance.

    One escape hatch for TLJ to be good might be some recognition by Kylo that she has a dark energy inside her. Like, instead of saying your parents are filthy prostitutes, be like "your parents knew who you were, they were like you but never wanted you to learn the ways of the force BUT I DO." Take my hand and join me.

    The quest of the non-Jedi is proving to Rey her parentage. So they do the fetch quest while Rey and Kylo legit go somewhere to prepare her for being Empress Rey, they have to kill Luke on this salt planet.

    End of TLJ is the reveal that Palpatine is your father, so then its like poetry, it rhymes. Finn and the Gang beam over info to Luke and Luke projects the feelings she knows to be true and it turns her back to not the dark side but THE GREY SIDE!

    >Your parents were junkers, Rey -Kylo Ren
    That dropped you off on Jakku with this really nice ass ship when you were a little kid that was never explained but it's totally not a gaping plot hole at all
