Empire is not the best star wars movie. Why is it everyone always parroting that it is?

well i do know people stopped bitching about the prequels once Disney's trash hit the theaters. made people realize the prequels weren't that bad after all.

The Last Jedi was garbage. Actually the entire sequel trilogy was garbage. But that’s what happens when you don’t have a concise three part act where you know what the end goal is. Abrams played it too cautious with TFA, Johnson shat on everything in TFA and then ruined Luke Skywalker’s character arc. And then Abrams came back in and threw together whatever he could to conclude the series with way too Little juxtaposition, and the tired old muggufin plot device chase. I honestly liked the storyline from TROS, but they should’ve started with that story in episode 7 and flushed it out over 8 and 9. That’s what you get for piss-poor planning and direction.

I’m a diehard Star Wars fan and have been since I saw ESB in theaters when I was 4. I can forgive the prequels because we already knew how they would end...but the sequels are an abomination.

The last jedi trashed the whole thing. the force awakens was eh ok. if the last jedi would have stuck to the story instead of trying to trash everything and then left more room for story in skywalker instead of abrams trying to clean the mess up we could have had a good triliogy but ryan johnson needs to be send packing and not allowed to make any more movies.

I tend to agree that ROTJ was basically the beginning of the end.
The two previous films were saved from Lucas by the special effects and the actors themselves, who were allowed some freedom of speech.

The clunky dialogue of the prequel trilogy was unforgivable. No plot can save a film from that train wreck.

Rogue managed to strike a balance in dialogue and script that few of them seem to find.

The final trilogy had so much promise, but delivered so little IMO.
