For me The Last Jedi was a big pile of....not a good movie. Basically the whole movie was about chasing each other super slowly in space with some PETA side story. It felt forced to me. Luke's character was butchered and Snoke...what?!

It could have been so much more. The CGI was really good, I liked the new animals, species.

You can't make a good movie with just a great setting, you need a story too.

And no, I'm not an original trilogy maniac, because I l love the prequels. Maybe Attack of the Clones is my least favourite, but it's still more consistent than The Last Jedi.

I really hope that J.J. Abrams can revive the story for Episode IX. I would like to know more about Snoke's background and I would like to see Rey in a situation, where she actually has to do something interesting. I would also like to see the Knights of Ren, etc.

May the Force be with you! And sorry for cancer english!

Having re-watched the original trilogy, a few snippets of the prequels, and The Force Awakens prior to seeing The Last Jedi, I feel like, as a whole franchise...Star Wars movies are fairly mediocre.

A New Hope managed to take the entire world by storm, and define media and entertainment for a good chunk of the late 1970s/early 80s, and it tells a simple story well enough. However, it's a tad cheesy at times. It's a good first entry, with a some flaws dotted about.

Empire Strikes Back is, in my opinion, the best overall Star Wars movie. It has action, it has a crazy bomb drop of a twist, it has a cliffhanger ending, and it also has Yoda, and Yoda is the greatest.

Return of the Jedi is 95% snoozefest. The intro is way too long, there's those little ewok things that clog up the film even more. The ending, though, is awesome, and just about worth sitting through the other parts for.

In terms of the prequels, I've not seen them fully, only bits and pieces from reviews, jokes, and other snippets, but Phantom Menace seems a tad grating, Attack of the Clones is cheesy, and Sith looks to be actually pretty cool, and has some great action scenes, especially the last fight.

As for the new movies, I can't get into them at all. TFA had so many boring moments, and ridiculous writing, with sparse highlights (A Stormtrooper that turns rogue? That's cool! The new villain has ties to the original cast? Interesting!) but parts like Rey using Obi Wan's Force mind stuff with no training, Rei being able to fight a super Sith dude with, again, no training, one of the "main" characters, Poe, just kinda becomes irrelevant towards the mid half of the movie, Snoke has no character, etc. TLJ itself is a mess--Leia's magical whoosh through space, Snoke still has no relevance, random uprising plot with Poe that kinda doesn't go anywhere, stupid casino subplot, Luke's return being good or not is...debateable. The best part of TLJ, was the little brush off Luke gives in his fight. Beyond cool.

I'm not even a big Star Wars fan, honestly. I don't even enjoy a majority of the flims. But will I go see IX? Of course.

Yeee boi

The death of Snoke was awesome. His ass got cocky and bam dead. I like how we know nothing about him. Keeps a element of surprise. Who was he? I like movies that flesh out characters. But I like movies that don't. To mix it up. Not everything in life is explained. Humans hate not knowing and I like movies that play in to this.

Mine is Rogue One. That movie is just plain awesome. Great cast, great characters, great story, freakin' Darth Vader, freakin' Tarkin (I am one of those people who had no idea Tarkin was CGI). Overall, Rogue One is as close as Star Wars has come to perfection (in my opinion), and that's why I love it. As for the main series... I dunno... the half of Last Jedi that focused on Rey and Kylo? That one was the best. ...I dunno, Force Awakens, I guess. None can beat Rogue One, so, I'll default to Force Awakens, cause it's A New Hope, but better... I guess.

The first one (A new hope), is the best one in my opinion. I think Nostalgia plays in, I was already playing with the toys for I think one or two years before I even saw the first movie. Episode V would probably be a lot more impactful if I didn't already know Darth was Luke's father (spoiler alert!).

I had a period in my life when I watched them quite often. But now it's been a looong time; and then I watched the Force Awakens in the cinema... and since then I haven't seen any of the more recent ones. I just don't watch many movies anymore, maybe saw 5 movies last year, can't even remember what they were but I know most of them were just average at best. I'm probably gonna see the newest one and skip the Rogue One (which isn't even in the poll)... I have seen Plinkett's Reviews of that and that's all I need.

I am the wrong age for star wars as I am too young for cinema star wars and by the time episode one rolled around it was just another bad sci fi film (and 1999 was the first Matrix film). Anything star wars for me was the games -- dark forces/jedi knight, pod racer and xwing/tie fighter are the star wars of my formative years, later still it was mainly the games.

Moving video wise I kind of liked the short things (few minutes, never saw the later 20 something minute things) cartoon network did for clone wars.

Yet to see the Disney ones either.

Assuming I am not allowed the plinkett reviews or phantom edit (which I still have to properly sit down and watch).

Screw it
Favourite Star Wars film is Spaceballs.

Rogue One, of course. They introduced whole set of characters and I liked them all. Also asthetics from the old trilogy were captured perfectly. And, come on, K-2SO is the best droid in the whole franchise.

I voted Rogue One. No particular reason.

To the people who think the next one will be good, I doubt it. It's made by JJA. He's not a great director in my opinion.

i'm not super invested in Star Wars anymore and i'm probably incapable of being objective about this due to a childhood of watching the original trilogy, but for my money A New Hope is the best. Darth Vader's entrance still gives me chills, the sheer amount of detail in the cantina sequence blew my tiny child mind back in the day, the whole Death Star prison break owns bones, the trench run is exhilarating, i could go on. also, i like that it has an actual ending. even if we know that the Death Star's destruction isn't the end of the Empire, that victory and the medal ceremony afterward provide a satisfying conclusion to the narrative arc and i appreciate that.

I voted New Hope but I would have voted the original trilogy + rogue one probably. Rogue One was what I was I was waiting for a Star Wars reboot.

I don't hate the prequels, but they're not really Star Wars for me.

I didn't like 7, and absolutely hated 8.

my personal ranking

1. empire strikes back (V)
2. return of the jedi (VI)
3. a new hope (IV)
4. revenge of the sith (III)
5. attack of the clone (II)
6. phantom menace (I)
7. the last jedi (VIII)
8. rogue one
9. the force awakens (VII)

yes, I did like the prequel trilogy quite a lot, I dont care what people say. At least it felt like a trilogy.
the "new" sequel trilogy so far doesn't feel like a trilogy. The two new movies + rogue one have completely separate subplots, they are individual stories.

TFA felt way too much like a bad remake of ANH. General Hux looks like a ridiculous nazi character rolling r's - it's just not doing it for me. It's not subtle at all. I liked rogue one but it did not impact the main storyline like Last Jedi did.

I finally watched Rogue One last night and I gotta say, it was pretty amazing. Ep 4 and 5 are my favorites due to nostalgia, but RO has an incredible feel to it. Plus seeing Vader go alpha male and the Death Star blowing shit up..... yay!!
