It was kind of underwhelming for me, sadly. [..] The story was kind of a mess.
Yeah, I agree.
For me the new trilogy is less worthy than the clunky prequels..
SW7 is an useless sequel\remake with crap characters.
SW8 tries to add something new.. but fails miserably with more bad characters and nonsensical events.
The only good things about the new movies are the visuals.
Rogue One, luckly, was ok, but still with various problems and a slow first half (but the last part, wow).
Well to be honest a starwars movie stays a starwars movie... beside this you can't expect the same quality movie from the 1990's with the same crew but then 30 to 40 years older..... that would me a grandpa vs grandpa hoverwheelchair battle.... so there is a moment that you need to chance crew ( especially wen you wait to long to make the rest of the books.....) he should done it right away with the same crew but he desided not to do so... here is the result and without hansolo its crap anyway
Therefore the new generation starwars fans i don't hear complaine about the new movies...
Beside the fact that starwars is a nazi vs resist based style of serie movies that i think that is ready for a compleet new remake .... atleast the 4.5.6 so that 1.2.3 and 7.8.9 are equal in grapics and animation.. and upgraded to 2.0 because using scale models is in this time for low budget bollywood movies...
Ill upload photo's soon from the starwars expedition here in the Nederlands.... with the original costumes and used scale models of spacecrafts. It looks cool but not from 2018.....
Beside all of this i still like it..... because its never gonna happen anyway...
And to give a example of remakes... the startrek series is what i think because of the cgi and graphic way better then the original series with stuward ( i liked his bold head and voice )
but other crew.... other graphics.... and that makes the movie totally differend then the original series.
Well starwars is having the same problem and effects of old vs new....
