****. Rise of Skywalker is garbage. I tried rewatching it. Never again.
Rise of Skywalker is truly awful. It's insultingly bad. "Somehow Palpatine returned!" has turned into a meme, but it's just the worst storytelling. And the movie doesn't get better from there.

The prequels have some extreme cringe (which honestly does make them unwatchable for me), but at least they're not openly insulting to the audience.

They made this a senator. This.

All the prequels openly insulted me. As much as Rise of Skywalker sucks I’d watch it over any of them. I at least like the characters even if the writing is bad.

Kylo and Rey are better characters than anything we saw in the prequels.

I’m beginnng to think Star Wars is just ANH and ESB. Endings are hard and ROTJ was simply “okay.”

The rest, big generalization here, is pap for the most part. A few decent moments, shout out to R1/Andor and the first three Zahn novels I guess.

Maybe honorable mention to the old Jedi Knight PC games?

Don't forget the comic books. Some of them were pretty good.

I only read the original Marvel series that started when ANH came out. My son read the Dark Horse and such. I stopped comics in 1984!

I loved ROTJ. People **** on the Ewoks but the rest of the film was good.

IMO the ending of the film was near perfect.

That was not me in 1983. I've softened a bit on it but ROTJ pales compared to the first two.
