I shant fight you brother. When Dizzy took the reins the franchise took a nose dive and refused to pull up. I blame gremlins, obviously they ejected the tail assembly. When they killed off Luke and Hans Star Wars bit through it's cyanide tooth. RIP Star Wars, oh how I loved thee. Saw the first one in the theater sitting in the first row because there were no more seats and it was world changing for me.
To be fair, Rogue One was solid. But it also deliberately tried to fit in as a direct prequel to Ep. 4 and match the vibe of the Orig. Trilogy.
Solo would have beena fine Scifi action adventure if it had simply not been Star Wars. If theyd just changed the names, and made it a generic sci-fi movie, it would have been a B+. As a Star Wars movie, though, it was a solid C-
The rest, though..ugh. Trash. Just.. Trash. Ive read better fanfic. Hell, if theyd just produced the (now Non-canon) original Thrawn Trilogy and not thrown away the expanded universe on a whim.... too late, though. Though i hear The Mandalorian is great... but i attribute that to it (like Rogue One) deliberately paying homage to the Orig. Trilogy and its style (amd John Favreau).
