the best part being that it will be a brand new story that is wholly disconnected from the main saga.

Definitely looking forward to this part, but not if Johnson is writing any of the stories. If he was just directing, I’d be ok with that.

I agree it is great we all have different opinions but get along.

For me I personally didn’t enjoy TLJ, mainly because I feel Rian Johnson set out to make a good movie / good Star Wars movie instead of a good middle chapter to the ST. It is a very careful balancing act, and I don’t think of him lowly because of it.

Simply put, the subversion of expectations work (for the most part) within the film. The problem is when you rewatch TFA and become let down by everything they very clearly were setting up. The problem is when you realize it has set up Episode 9 to just be a retred or something we have all already seen.

I am looking forward to Johnson’s trilogy because I think it’ll be a chance for him to tell his vision without being constrained or constraining another director.

Love:

  1. The Empire Strikes Back
  2. Star Wars

Really like:
3. Return Of The Jedi
4. Rogue One
5. Revenge Of The Sith
6. The Force Awakens

Meh:
7. Solo

Don’t like:
8. Attack Of The Clones

10. The Last Jedi.

Apart from the first two on the list, my opinion changes a lot on the others.
