> Yes, I know people are very divided on the prequels. Agree to disagree.

Ummm no, my opinion is correct and I won’t give up until you agree with me because THATS HOW THE INTERNET WORKS AAAAGH

Nah, fair 😝 I wish I could go back and rediscover my 10 year old love of Phantom as well, but….I really think it was just cause of pod racing, duel of the fates, the merch at the time (had every game and action figure possible) and my newly powerful crush on Natalie Portman that made me dig it so. Cause by the time Attack came out I was like “ehhh” and then Sith made me actively go “what the hell is this crap”.

I dunno. Is what it is.

Yeah, and I think that’s part of it, the timing was off. It really did feel like a superhero movie from the 90’s or early 00’s, just really simplistic and kind of silly. Which part of me liked, but the other part realized how lazy it was and what a waste cause damn did I love Appcalypse as a kid.

Solid point, although if we’re comparing Solo with the Rey trilogy, what’s worse - not being able to conclude your story, or concluding it terribly from film to film because no one properly planned it out and the last movie had to retcon everything in a desperate attempt to appeal to the fans?

Honest question, because I’m not sure which one is worse. I just know that the experience of Solo, despite a myriad of problems and the worst cinematography in eons, was a lot more fun and coherent than stuff like Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker (and the prequels). Not by a ton or anything, but still haha

> I'd say the third is better than the second, but not as good as the first.

Yeah that’s what I’ve been hearing, an improvement but still a very different story than they started with with Beasts. Too bad - the universe is cool and there’s lots of potential there, but man, I couldn’t care less to see “where did Dumbledore come from” 🤦‍♂️
