    Star Wars movies have always looked fabulous (save for some of that weird CGI) and hopefully that continues forever.

    Hard disagree on AOTC and ROTS, which look like video games in many places. Especially AOTC, which looks like a particularly terrible video game in many places.

    I didn’t know that video games look bad to you. They have some of the best visuals.

    I never said video games look bad. But they look like video games, not movies.

    If you think video games look as good as movies, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe watch better movies.

    Video games are animated, the movies in question are not. Video games can look as good as movies; but they obviously won’t look real, as no one is filming every second of it.

    I’m pretty sure the prequel trilogy would have been near impossible to make without that technology anyway.

    Fixed: Now other people can have the liberty of not getting caught up on one line and actually look at the information. Definition of every modern American movement.

    Want to try to make a point by referencing a bad joke on the internet? Learn from my mistake, clearly the internet doesn’t have a sarcastic detector yet.

    I’m offended that you actually thought I was calling you a “boomer.”

    Now I’m no longer reading anything you’ve written, like a responsible information seeker.

    In all seriousness, I have seen good movies, some of the best movies, and I still think that some video games reach that level of artistic beauty. It may come down to a generational difference, as I grew up in this technological era and you may not have, but most likely it’s that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.

    Technically I'm Gen-X, but I'm a hip and cool Gen-X.

    I saw this thread pop up yesterday and decided to give The Rise of Skywalker a second viewing last night to get a gauge of my feelings. I saw it in theaters on opening night, and walked away from it sort of.... satisfied enough, I didn't need to watch it again.

    On a second viewing though - I actually really enjoyed it, and overall enjoyed the ST as much as I enjoyed the PT and OT. I consider myself a big fan of Star Wars, and really anything that takes me on a journey.

    That being said, there are of course elements in all of the movies that I sort of groaned at, or wish they'd have done differently.

    I won't spend a lot of time defending them, as everyone is entitled to their opinions and none are wrong. But I'll give a comparison to Game of Thrones. It was another series that took me on a journey and had a lot of ups and downs.

    I had to evaluate what sat poorly with me regarding the final season of GoT. At the end of the day, I thought they told their story exceptionally well... but I did not like the story they ended up telling. That's a big distinction that I try to process when I'm watching something for entertainment.

    As an example, the Holdo maneuver from a logical and story perspective I thought was weak. From how they told that story though, visually it was one of the greatest moments I've ever sat in a theater and witnessed.

    Do I think it's logical for Kylo/Rey to be able to pass items through space using the force, IE sharing a lightsaber? No I think it's kind of a lame concept that brings up a lot of follow up questions. BUT visually, watching their fight take place between two locations and having elements phase between them? That was some seriously cool stuff to watch.

    That’s a really good analysis. I, too, find the space trade odd, but visually fantastic. The Last Jedi never sit right with me, but the filmmaking and storytelling intrigue me. It’s like a beautiful puzzle piece that just doesn’t fit anywhere.
