    ugh, im surprised so may like Rogue One. R.O. has the best scenery and stage but its a terrible movie I.M.O. very reminiscent of those absolutely terrible Daniel Craig Bond movies. I think my favorite is Ep3 when the accumulation of doubt from 1+2 gets to Anakin

    Best Star Wars is obviously this masterpiece

    The best two are episode III and V. If I have to choose just one it would V because of Luke and Han.

    As for my opinion of The Last Jedi, I found it enjoyable to watch but after letting it set in I realise how bad it is.

    there was another post on 'canon' and rogue one really messes up that canon. similar to the Bourne with the pills.

    Slight twist for those still playing.
    Which one would you be happy enough to never see again?
    Prior to this latest batch some had begun to speculate whether having never seen it was going to be a thing commonly seen in nerdy circles, where in the 80s and early 90s that might have been shocking it was not really then.

    From where I sit I will probably never watch the older ones again and thus I am back to spaceballs as the only one I would be upset about never seeing again.

    Were they that bad for you? Maybe I was soured by later Brosan efforts but I found them enjoyable enough, especially the first (give or take the ridiculous end to the card game).

    Yea, the scenery is great but the plots and continuity made no sense at all in the Craig films. I've seen most of the 007 films and regardless of the bad special effects the Brosnan ones are by far the best. We don't say the first three star wrs are worse because of the new remasters that made the special effects worse than the Brosnan films.

    For example. Craig David arrives at the cabin by the lake in snow. Beautiful scenery but he goes in and the place is just filled with all sorts of electronics and gadgets that no generator would be able to supply without being noisey AF. None of the stuff made zero sense, those movies plots and scripts were nonsensical trash too and were mostly driven by production quality only.

    Rogue One was the movie that made me decide never again go to the cinema to watch a new Star Wars movie.
    Star Wars 7 was meh, too many fireworks, no much substance, unremarkable plot, but passable.
    As I stated above, I didn't go to watch SW8, I don't plan to, Disney can go fuck themselves, SW is dead to me (but I still have an appreciation for the older ones, and even the prequels).

    After re-watching what I thought was my favorite Star Wars film (IV) I have come to the conclusion that I don't really care for Star Wars that much. The movies shook the world when they arrived in theaters, but not for me. Again I really thought I liked Rogue One but after watching it a few weeks ago I realized that the only reason I like it is because the ENTIRE movie is a set up for Vader to look cool for about 21 odd seconds. Which, is really cool. But not worth the entire movie. I thought that VII was decent but "borrowed" way too much from IV and the same death star idea again... The characters were interesting enough. I liked Finn, but he ended up being shoved to the side and completely under-utilized. I had low hopes for VIII and rightly so. Again Finn got a good chance at being a main stage hero, but his mission was pointless and he gets completely shunted aside again by that useless maintenance chick (who I would put up for worst character of all Star Wars. and yes that includes Jar-Jar). The pacing was really messed up, and there was 45 minutes of movie left after the climax...? That's bad writing. I haven't even touched on the casino CGI scenes and the again "borrowed" "Hoth" scene...

    Same here, Rogue One was just a money grab and made me decide not to go see sw8. I'm not a fanboy of starwars but Ive seen all of them

    I'm not really familiar with the extended universe, so that character seemed to come out of nowhere with no explanation. I'm aware that Leia has the ability to use the force but that scene just came off as laughably bad.

    Of all the things to bring up you went for that?

    The one where they kept telling him he was old was odd as it seemed to come out of left field. I think it was also that one where the supposed computer genius plugged in the suspect device into an non isolated machine. Continuity wise I tend not to treat any Bond as canonical with the others, though there were threads in the Craig ones.

    Non goldeneye (also non Nightfire -- technically his last appearance which was a game) Brosan I can leave though. Some seriously wasted setups there. Having seen some of his "not quite Bond" work since I might be tempted one day to go back and watch those.

    Lol, in the end he bullseyed a dagger straight through the guys heart without ever previously used a knife or even practiced with one in the build up on his bum shooting arm. If he couldn't pull a goddamn trigger with his throwing arm I doubt he'd been able to accurately throw a giant dagger.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    What I meant in comparison was that the plot, script and story sucked for Rogue One and was mostly spectacular because of it visuals, similar to the Craig bond movies. Both of those films Suck without the production quality or loyal fanbase.

    Rogue one in terms of canon is similar the the Bourne series starring Jeremy Renner in which it adds an element that would otherwise f*ck shit up for the other storylines.

    Going off topic, those Daniel Craig bonds are the worse ones ever and there's gonna be a 5th one.... Smh... I think he was doing parcore in the first one too which is laughable because he was old and wash up in that same movie in which he fell in love with a hooker he knew for 5mins then forgot about his unrelenting anger to avenge her by the beginning of the next film only to flash back at how much he loved a h* in the third one. Ugh, the continuity in that Craig series alone is comically bad.

    What the hell? Why isn't the Star Wars Holiday Special in the list of choices?
    By far the best Star Wars of them all. Chewbacca's family much superior to Jar Jar Bink's.

    That's because Rogue One isn't a part of the sequel trilogy.
