Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

For one last time, Skywalker/Palpatine Saga only:

  1. A New Hope : 10/10
  2. The Empire Strikes Back : 10/10
  3. Clone Wars (micro series) : 9/10
  4. Return of the Jedi : 8/10
  5. Revenge of the Sith : 7/10
  6. The Phantom Menace : 5/10
  7. Attack of the Clones : 4/10
  8. The Last Jedi : 3/10
  9. The Force Awakens : 2/10
  10. The Rise of Skywalker : 0/10

I just cannot fathom how Kennedy, who is a skilled producer and a very intelligent woman, could have produced such non sense. Something went wrong with the ST from its very root, I don’t know how to explain… or maybe I don’t really care now. I feel Adam Driver’s pain: such a good actor in such a mess…

To sum up:

  1. OT
  2. PT
  3. ST : but I just want to forget this trilogy.

So real ranking:

  1. OH : Original Hexalogy

See you all. Have fun. I’ll probably come back from time to back to check out OT hybrid cuts and a ROTS conservative edit.

I can finally put SW behind me 😃

I wonder if in his last breath, he whispered “Fire… Kennedy… please…

(don’t forget I’m french, I deserve the right to dark humor !)

Time

Daisy Ridley is probably the worst actress of her generation. It’s almost impossible for me to rewatch TFA since she’s incredibly bad in it. And if I judge by the trailer of Episode 6 remake, she’s still quite terrible… and her character is equally uninteresting. I still don’t get why Finn wasn’t the “hero” of this ST.

Too many self-serving winks to the audience that make the galaxy seem smaller

And later…

  • Add more background aliens from other SW media
  • Re-dub IG-11’s introduction so he claims to be IG-88
  • Put yoda’s force ghost in the background when baby yoda uses the force
  • Add dialogue to make it explicit that the Mandalorian is Boba’s son/clone and change his ship to the Slave I
  • Replace the egg-rhino with the reek from Episode II

😄

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films
Time

It’s funny because the whole point of this wide shot was to frame everybody 😃 (and yep the PT has many good shots)

Noticed only when someone pointed it out to me a few years ago: the off screen guy telling Bib Fortuna about Luke “It’s a Sith !”.

4K restoration on Star Wars

Seems like most redone 2004/11 changes are no better or worse, with some being a bit better and some being a bit worse.

This is curious. I’m looking forward to checking 005’s new comparaison gallery. What is better and what is worse for example ? It seems the new sabers have reached consensus this time. Are the cgi dewbacks better integrated ?

Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

Slight rework of my ranking:

The Real Saga:

  1. ANH
  2. TESB
  3. ROTJ
    3.5 CW microseries
  4. ROTS
    4.5 TCW tv series and Rebels S1/S2
  5. TPM
  6. AOTC

The other stuff I don’t really care about (unless TROS is good but I doubt it):
7. TLJ
8. R1
9. Solo
10. Mandales ou rien
11. Resistance
12. TSWHS
13. TFA

To sum up:

  1. OT and Genndy’s microseries
  2. PT and Dave Filoni’s animated tvseries
  3. ST and other Disney stuff that are called Star Wars for some reason that less and less occur to me

This show looks better than most Marvel movies.

Sorry for the misunderstanding: what I refer as “Marvel tv series” are in fact the so called “movies” released in theater since 2008. I’m not mad enough to watch the same formula shrinked into a real tv series. But this mandalorian seems to be, unfortunately…

(and it looks bad…)

LOL I hated the first episode. Looks like a cheap Marvel tvseries with random guys playing cosplay at a fan convention. I just can’t stand how they label anything “Star Wars” just because there is a guy wearing a SW helmet 😕 It was lame from minute one to the ridiculous baby Yoda reveal. It’s terrible…

Rebels S3/4, TFA, Rogue One, Solo, and now this… let the past die please 😄

I’ll just watch episode 9 because I have to finish this damned ST, but after that I’m done with Star Wars. It’s no longer Star Wars since 1997 anyway, so it’s time to say good bye.
