So is it an unpopular opinion that I think the current Star Wars films are almost as good as the original trilogy?

Ibiza (2018)

The first 20 minutes or are lazy, uncinematic, and completely devoid of laughs. Having watched a number of 80's comedies recently, one of the most impressive things about the good ones is how much is happening in each scene, even if it's just characters talking in an office. There's always something going on in the background and a character is doing something physical, on top of the jokes in the conversation. This had no layers to the scenes at all. It's borderline incompetent.

It's time to let Star Wars die.

This is ironic, given the themes of The Last Jedi.

A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

An hour actually. Shockingly unadventurous and dramatically inert. There's no drama, suspense, or build-up to the introductions of the Mrs. characters. Very disappointing.

I actively avoided  the movie, but was on a plane and someone was watching it ahead of me. Each time I looked up, I thought, "What is this nonsense? It's not The Wrinkle in Time I know and love."

That's how I felt when I tried to reread the book as an adult, lol.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Mrs oldkid and I saw Wrinkle in Time, recognizing that it is not the book ahead of time and that helped us enjoy the film we were watching.  It is also not nearly as good as the book, so if you haven't read the book, just read the book.  And if you have read the book, re-read it.

May Rian Johnson's Star Wars live!  And yes, 1SO, I think it is in the realm of as good as the original trilogy.

I'm not a fan of Episode VII but The Last Jedi is on par or even better than Empire.
