You must have been damn near suicidal after seeing the prequels.

Well, I guess none wants to start the discussions we had in the TFA thread again. But I think they were a lot better than TFA, that does not mean I was not disappointed though, especially with the Phantom Menance. Just so you don't have to go through that horror of the thread, the summary as to why, is that at least they had something fresh both in terms of story and lore, they do have a whole lot of weaknesses too of course no denying that.

I can't even fathom someone thinking that TPM wasn't worse than TFA, but to each his own I guess.

I wouldn't put it in remotely the same league of badness as TPM. This was just an ordinarily poor movie - TPM was absolutely jaw-dropping.

For me its the opposite. TPM has definitely been underwelming however TFA is on a completely uncontested level of trash… maybe down there with the new Ghostbusters

At least TPM had a story and one good saber battle at the very end.

Went to see Arrival yesterday. I really liked it. The trailer was a bit misleading, but I knew that beforehand. The movie's focus wasn't so much on "OMG! Aliens on Earth!", but more on Amy Adams' character and her experience as a human being.

A meditative (read: relatively slow-moving), fascinating film made for thinking and reminiscing. In that light, very fine sci-fi.

Someone I was with gave the movie an F minus, so I guess it's not for everyone.
It was certainly for me. Best film I've seen for ages.

I also watched it with my boys and enjoyed it very much. It doesn't seem possible that I watched the first movie almost 40 years ago. I told my kids that the theater we watched it in wasn't even built when the first one came out and I had watched it in a theater that closed twenty five years before they were born.

Saw Rogue One too yesterday. I thought it was great. I'm loving this Star Wars revival. I have to say though:

I'm going to have to agree. I enjoyed it and was semi-surprised at the end that
