I was just expressing my own feeling of Dark Empire that is how this started.
Of how I find it funny how the Squeals, mostly just The Raise of Skywalker, ended up being a lamer versions of that.
Then you hit with second-hand account of “Nah it’s actually worse”, as if trying to convince me I’m wrong, with something that’s not even your own opinion.
Let me be clear that that I have never intended to make you interested in anything, I have only expressed my opinions, my feelings on thing; the things I like and dislike.
I do not care what you find interesting or not. People can express their opinions, they can take interest in other’s, disagree with it, whatever, ultimately what actually matters, what should matter, is their own opinions; that they should not need the approval of others, nor force it others to validate it.
And my opinion is: Yes, I hate the Sequel Trilogy, a lot.
It is an extremely disappointing, hollow mess, that squandered any potential it had.
It is a big blockbuster movie Trilogy, which had a massive budge, and (despite what Kathleen Kenny thinks) a near 40 years of expended stories to draw on for inspiration, to find things work and learn from the things that didn’t.
As well as Lucas’s scripts which they could have liked to for some idea, not saying all of it, but someone could have found something in there that might have worked (but then Disney probably would have had to pay him for his idea, and the certain don’t want do that).
Meaning, they have no excuse for them to have ended up being the massive mess that they are, no excuse for the lack of a cohesive narrative.
And being such a big mainstream film trilogy means it’s not the same as some dumb book or comic which can just be ignored or even retconned away, it means it’s the most rock solid of canons, and that far more people were exposed to expose to it.
It has left an uncertain future, in-universe future even, since it just ended the same way the OT, one person left to rebuild the Jedi Order (and also the New New Republic needs some patching up too) which is also what they also need to do for post-ROTJ, which they seem to be focus on now, instead of post-TROS/Resistance Era stuff, since it would basically be the same thing; the Sequel Trilogy has lead to a dead end.
Yes I don’t like the Squeals, and I will continue to express that feeling whenever I want to.
I don’t care what you say, I don’t care Eck says, I don’t care what anyone says regardless of their stance, whether they’re for them or against them, I don’t care what dumb things happened in Legends, because there is most likely (I won’t say absolutely) nothing that is ever going to change my mind, my feelings, on those movies, and stop from expressing those feelings.
