Don't like it.
Seen (as a child) one or two of the first but never liked that universe.
Then, one day I saw this "newer" movie with that crazy alien with that mad grammar ... chacha-bings or so? don't know... Stopped half way and never watched it to the end.
Sorry... no way.
Same problem I had with "Avatar" - tried 4 times... couldn't stand it to the end. Never seen more than the first ~30-45 minutes... then either fell asleep or left/turned off.
Only movie in my life where I left the cinema before the movie ended. Had a good time in the cocktail bar outside until my friends came out when the movie was over. So we all had fun that evening
Yes, likewise. Not sure how I managed to avoid the original Star Wars films - it wasn't deliberate. I keep meaning to watch them but never seem to get round to it. That said, I haven't seen the Star Trek prequels either.

To me Rogue One is the most 'grown up' of the bunch. It feels the most like a serious sci-fi movie. Of the main set, episode 3 is also more serious. The others of the original six are just aiming a bit too low in the age demographic for my tastes, though I still watch them from time to time.
Leaving aside a few silly bits like "Leia's Body in Space on Ice", I actually like The Last Jedi. In particular those final scenes between Kylo and Luke are visually pretty epic.
I just realized this is the original movie. Never heard that before.
It all went downhill about the time McDonald's started selling drinks in SW cups before the movie was even out. When I first encountered the Jar Jar Binx character I almost puked. It was obvious this cuteness was added to appeal to the kiddies and no other reason. It could have been a great series but they needed return on investment.
Yeah, I was 16 and working as an usher at the movie theater. We sold out 700+ seats in the big theater for Star Wars for quite a while. I was not as aware of many ulterior motives then. Those of women especially.
