TROS is the exception for me. I think it’s better than ROTJ - indeed for me it’s what I wish ROTJ had been.

Outside of the fact that the film blatantly craps on the first 6 films, TROS isn’t even consistent with the other two films in its own trilogy. Other than “pew pew lasers woohoo!” I don’t get what there is to latch onto and I’ve seen every argument for the film imaginable. I get someone liking it in a dumb turn-your-brain-off way, but even if you take away the Star Wars brand name it’s just a really poorly constructed film in its own right.

But I mean you’re not gonna change my mind and I’m not gonna change yours, so you do you, more power to you. If you love the film I’m certainly not going to slap your wrist and tell you that’s not allowed. I’ll definitely never understand it though.
