Oh man, I can already feel the heat for this one. movies are some of the most divisive ever made, with The Last Jedi named as the most divisive . ever are aplenty across this fandom, but here are a few common ones that actually make some good points.
Just remember, all of these are simply opinion and are really just there to encourage respectful debate and to have some fun chatting about the galaxy’s coolest franchise.
So without further ado, let’s jump in to the first about the franchise and break it down!
VIII: The Last Jedi is a good (and Porgs are great)
Oof. I already touched on this one in my ‘Is The Last Jedi Actually a , and no. No it’s not. ?’ OpEd
The Last Jedi is undoubtedly the most polarizing The the laziest as it essentially acts as a remake of A . ever made, but it’s also the freshest. I’ll go on record and call
You can hate everything about TLJ, but you can’t deny that it takes the in a new and interesting direction. It takes a from the and puts him in a more realistic and dramatic light and to me, that’s pretty cool.
And a we’ve yet seen. Even if you hate the story, this is one of the, if not the best looking movies in the . ? Come on now. Rian Johnson has a lot of talent behind him and he created the most visually striking look at the
As for Porgs, they’re entirely inoffensive and kind of cute. They also exist to cover up puffins that were getting in the way of filming. Don’t tell me that they’re less annoying than your average . Speaking of which…
VI: The Return of the Jedi has some notable issues (and so does the on the whole)
A all suffer from many of the issues that people complain about today. is one of the first films I ever saw on video tape and I LOVE it to this very day. However, even our favorite movies aren’t immune to criticism and and to a lesser extent, Strikes Back and
The A in particular is pretty hammy, in my opinion — Especially from Mark Hamill and the plot in ROTJ shows a move to prioritize selling toys over telling a good story long before Disney started doing it. plot takes up a large portion of the and feels dissonant from the wide focused storyline. The acting in
And Strikes Back is…ok, who am I kidding; is untouchable and is still one of the best movies ever made, period. It’s also one of the few films in the latter two thirds of the not to rely on a style super-weapon / fleet of lame Star Destroyers (looking at you TROS).
of the is the best (and one of the best movies, period) III:
Speaking of the of the is a different story. , it’s third entry often gets a lot of flack. While I personally feel that and Attack of the Clones mostly deserve the heat they get,
This is a darn near perfect Anakin to Darth may be clunky, but the Clone Wars series more than fills in the gaps. . The pacing, the music, and yes, the characters are all exceptional. The evolution of
Even without that additional media, of the is just a , in my opinion. This is one of those formerly unpopular Star Wars opinions that has seemingly morphed into a pretty accepted fact these days, though.
Boba is a horrendously overrated (and Jango is cooler)
Boba ‘s design is incredible. And that’s about it. In all seriousness, this is widely popular due to looking incredible (why do you think they chose to do a live action series that uses the Mandalorian armor!), but in Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi he’s a little useless, I must say.
Comic books and other media have redeemed Darth he is not. , but in the movies, I feel he’s pretty incompetent. He dies very, very quickly in an accidental mishap in Return of the Jedi without even slightly threatening and the other protagonists.
The Jango . Jango gets unceremoniously killed in a pretty similar way to the younger , but at least he holds his own against Obi-Wan for a little bit and cements himself as a somewhat cool . then introduced a younger Boba alongside his kind of clone-template father,
And those are some controversial . Remember this is just one opinion and each is just as entitled to theirs!
