I saw the original the day it opened first showing in '77. A friend & I ditched school to be there, there were ~40 people in the theater! Came back to see it again on the weekend and the line was around the block. That moment is impossible to replicate. I liked the next 2 installments too but they did not come close to that experience. The prequels... I took my son as he was the right age. He liked them and like Christmas you enjoy it again through your children's eyes. But that little voice inside was going "Wow do these suck!" the entire time. Then The Force Awakens; really a remake? I liked Rogue One more but it is an aberration. Have not seen TLJ nor Solo*. What I see gone entirely is real character development. There is too much built-in expectation that you will like the new/old characters and stories because "Hey, it's Star Wars and you're a fanboi!" plus CGI, woo hoo! It's lazy, sloppy, and ultimately disrespectful of the audience. It isn't that I've moved on, the originals remain great. Disney could turn all this around and faced with the financial beating of Solo needs to if they are going to continue with SW. Were I king I'd put way more Rogue One sauce on it but also more hope, humor, and characters you are interested in as well as fewer of them. And, dump the management responsible for SW, they blow. *A good friend and SW junkie saw it over the weekend. His reaction, "Eh, could have waited and seen it at home.". That's my plan too.
