I just get the optical migraine now, its like a lightning strike across my vision which temporarily blinds me. Lasts for about 15 -20 minutes then goes away, I cant find a cause or a trigger of any kind. Used to get the pain but haven’t had that since my mid 30s.

Should move him onto a development contract, if he goes well he can get a run towards the end of then season.

Rise of Skywalker did the best it could after Johnson trashed every single plot point he could. He pretty much left Abrams at a dead end. Disney have fired multiple directors of Star Wars films for far less. I don’t know how The Last Jedi was allowed to proceed the way it did.

ROS felt a little rushed, like it was it’s own trilogy and had to fit everything in.

My main issue with the sequel trilogy is the lack of respect shown to both Mark Hamill and Luke Skywalker.

Spot on

I caught the movie last Thurs so I’ve had a bit of time to reflect. Overall, I thought it was good without being great…what a missed opportunity though!
JJ had great ideas on where to take the characters and the story, however he didn’t quite execute it. It was filled with lazy writing (the final battle scene/General Hux’s scenes) and poorly edited (the opening 10 mins could have been a whole other movie!) If they had taken the same approach Marvel did with the Avengers and split the final episode over two parts, they could have expanded on the characters a lot more which would have made it a much better conclusion.
Overall, this is how I rate the entire saga
Episode V - ESS (10/10)
Episode IV - ANH (9.5/10)
Rogue One (9/10)
Episode VI - ROTJ (8.5/10)
Episode VII - TFA (7.5/10)
Episode VIII - TLJ (7.5/10)
Episode IX - TROS (7/10)
Episode I - TPM (6.5/10)
Solo (6/10)
Episode III - ROTS (6/10)
Episode II - AOTC (3/10)

That’s what TLJ was supposed to do but it is the worst movie in the history of Star Wars and Disney has know one to blame but themselves for not writing the trilogy as one story. They let each director write their own story and Rian Johnson blew it. TFA was bad but TLJ could have built on it but no. TROS was good but far from brilliant.

For me,
5,4,R1,3,6,9,1,Solo,7,2,8

I didn’t mind the TLJ, it’s not my favourite but it is not as bad as many make out. Others just like you complain episodes 7-9 don’t tie in, however when you think about it, TESB is such a departure from ANH, and Return of the Jedi is nothing like ANH.
The problem is, Disney listened to the fans too much. After TFA, people complained it was too familiar and predictable, that it was ANH rehashed, there weren’t enough strong female leads…TLJ turns everything on it’s head by addressing a lot of TFA’s criticisms, but guess what…people hated it! They wanted familiarity, they weren’t happy with how the male characters were portrayed in comparison to female characters, they also felt some characters were disrespected, especially Luke (who Star Wars is not centered on BTW). So guess what they do in TROS?
IMO, JJ and Disney have themselves to blame for not taking more of a chance in TFA and playing it safe again in TROS.

Nope, I don’t hate it because of those reasons. The story is so bad that’s why I dislike it. I don’t give a rats bum about strong female leads and all that other garbage I want a cohesive story over three movies that sticks with basics of the Star Wars universe, not the story line but just the ground rules that we have already been given. RJ broke them and so did JJ to a lesser extent but with a good follow up to what he did people would have come to love TFA. I agree they could have told a better story in TFA but they didn’t but the next movie should have continued down the same story line not the garbage we got.
The nine movies are also the Skywalker Saga, Anakin, Luke and who? Anakin falls and Luke redeems then what? We got you know who, which I wont spoil for others.

The saddest thing is star Wars is over now. Countless tears have been shed by Demp’s so call gay men across the globe.

Only the Skywalker saga, there will be more movies.

The first hint will be when the Rooters announce they have formally released him, nothing can happen until that happens.
