That's a pretty accurate list imo, I think attack of the clones oughtta move up one, same goes for mando, Phantom menace up two, then Solo down two. Other than that though it's pretty much exactly how I view the films

Games I'm playing right now:
Zelda BotW - Switch
Zelda Skyward Sword (Motion Controls) - Switch
Kingdom Hearts 2 - PS4
Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition - Switch
Mario Maker 2 - Switch

I think revenge of the sith would be higher for me, definitely above the sequels. The line delivery wasn’t great, but the story is at least original and there’s some actual good moments.

I’d rank the sequels towards the bottom, with the force awakens being a bit higher than the other two, mainly because the sequels had no plan at all for story cohesion, and the main cast of characters aren’t great at all. Stuff happens with hardly explanation, and sometimes things happen that just break what’s been established before.

The force awakens is the most inoffensive of the three, as it’s effectively a retelling of A New Hope, and characters like Finn actually seem pretty interesting in that movie.

Of the ones I’ve watched so far, my ranking would probably be:
15: Attack of the Clones
14: The Phantom Menace
13: The Clone Wars (film)
12: Solo
11: Rise of Skywalker
10: Revenge of the Sith
9: The Last Jedi
8: Rebels
7: The Force Awakens
6: A New Hope
5: Return of the Jedi
4: The Mandalorian
3: The Clone Wars (series)
2: Rogue One
1: The Empire Strikes Back
Yeah, my opinions aren’t terribly controversial

As for The bad batch: There's a new character called Omega. She's apparently a clone in kid-phase, but she's a girl! Wich begs the question: Is she Palpatine's daughter or Rey? In that case she's not really a clone, just someone created sharing Palpatine's dna (to a certain extent). And before you ask: Yes, clones can have kids! The second episode of bad batch shows a clone with a wife and kids. So a "clone" daughter to Palpatine could have a daughter too (Rey).

And here's another theory: In episode 3 they are talking about creating the ultimate clone, and after that dialogue we see Crosshair. Maybe that leads into Snoke? Maybe Crosshair will be turned into Snoke? But then there's also the clone project from the Mandalorian. Maybe there's a connection?

Star Wars: the Cone Wars season 2 (Disney+).

Pretty solid, about the same quality wise as season 1, though I noticed there was less erratic continuity jumping around (there was still some, but it seemed more willing to commit to full 3-4 episode long arcs). Oh, and after being a pretty common side character in season 1, it looks like they've already jettisoned Jar Jar, lol (he may have had one appearance, but I may be thinking of a season 1 episode).

Wait until you get to the final season, it's pretty epic...

Hmm, now that I have seen the full season of Bad batch: Yup, just another Clone wars season. And not at its highest (there are much better Clone wars episodes). Lots of filler episodes. As soon as they went to Zid I knew the drill: fetch-quests. It has its moments (the literal collapse of Kamino for example), but other then that very average. We still didn't learn much about Omega, maybe in season 2?

Star Wars: Visions is the best I've personally watched from Star Wars since I got into the franchise with Tartakovsky's Star Wars: Clone Wars series back in 2003. This is the first new release I've watched completely from Star Wars since leaving the theater for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which drained any real interest I might have had in seeing the releases between that movie up until Visions. The reason I was very interested in Visions is because it reminded me of the 2003 Clone Wars a bit and it's its own story, nine of them.

Plenty of strong, interesting characters in these stories, both male and female, and if I had anything negative to say about Visions it would be that I would've liked more than 9 stories. I hope that Visions is a regular for new seasons on Disney+, and I would definitely love to see these same studios work on a new season along with more great animation talent. The Village Bride, The Ninth Jedi, The Elder, T0-B1 and Lop & Ocho are my favorites of the bunch.

@jump @BruceCM LOL, I did see something amusing in the video. While Disney experiences have a very high polish, watch the girl playing Rey. I'm pasting it to play at the relevant time stamp. Watch the first three seconds of the Rey/actor with the light saber. I'm cracking up. It's amazing. Does she use more than one lightsaber? (the moment is at 1:17:10 -ish)

I've seen some stuff on it, and it feels like the thing is too pricy for what it is. It just doesn't sound very appealing either.

Now that the book of Boba fett is over: The mood was spot on again and it definitely had its moments (especially Cad Bane in life-action was lovely), but there wasn't any story to tell. And it wasn't even Boba's "book", more like a apetiser for the Mandalorian season 3. That baby Yoda ditched his training just to be with Mando...I think its wrong. And I really wonder what this means for the story of Mandalorian 3. The scenes with Luke where much more wholesome then I expected and Luke looked really great.

On a sidenote: I am excited about the Obi wan series, especially since it marks the life-action debut of the inquisitors. But at the same time it might mean that Obi wan also gets sidelined in his own series. As for the inquisitors: Is the Grand inquisitor played by Andy Serkis? I hope we learn more about them, Rebels failed on that. Nice to see they bring characters and lore from across different media (3D series, games, comics) into the life-action series and potentially future movies.

I might watch the Obi-Wan series, but I’m not convinced they won’t screw it up. I hope they won’t, but it’s Disney, so you never know with them.

hello, I was already searching for a star wars topic. This weekend are the star wars days as you might know.

@WoomyNNYes thanks for sharing. the people who are at the entrance (and all the others) now know... that your rich or had just spend about 4000 dollars... hm.
it looks fun, like a ride. but not worthy of buying 4000 dollars (for me).

Well, I liked the Obi wan series (I seem to be in the minority). Finally a Star wars series with lightsabers, Jedi vs Sith. That's what I always wanted. Much better then Boba fett, wich was just a tie-in to the upcoming Mandalorian season. And the inquisitors making their live-action debut was great.

Of course the hardcore fanbase moans, as always. They had this idea for a Kenobi vs Darth rematch, I always found that idea daft. And now that it is there, oh no it doesn't live up to the expectations. Sure, the fight might not have been the best of the series but it still was a very good fight. Quite a dirty fight in my opinion. Dear people, your childhood excitement for Star wars never comes back, you are jaded. You have ideas that can never truly become reality even in the hands of masters, excitement-wise. This counts for many movies, games, etc. We have become old!

I always found the rematch idea daft, but even then they managed to do a great job. Of course they wouldn't do a whole movie about Obi moping in the desert (and Darth moping in his Starship). You simply don't have a Starwars movie/series that way, not one that feels like Starwars anyway. Of course there had to be a incentive for Obi to leave the planet and face Darth, in this instance the kidnapping of young Leia. Though I must say that for a Starwars it contains very little humor, please Disney don't forget that Starwars always had good humor (not of the Marvel kind). What annoyed me though was that Reva lived through the stabbing. Life and death seems to have gone completely out of the window, in Starwars episode 9 they could even heal each-others stabwounds. That's just wrong.

I wonder though how long Disney will dabble in old Starwars. There's just a limit to what you can do before it gets truly stale. I heard they might do a Darth vader series, that sounds awful. I think they should do a series about the origins of the inquisitors, a series about Snoke and how the emperor survived, maybe a series about Papatine's life before he became the emperor, a series about the Kotor era and a series about future Starwars (I heard there will be at least a animated series far in the future).

I disagree with much of the above post. The story delivered via the Obi-Wan series could have been made into a very good movie. But presumably it's much cheaper to produce a mini series instead, so that's what they went for.

The trouble being that the Star Wars story is a cinematic story, and the characters and themes are of cinematic heritage. Dropping them into a budget setting doesn't do these epic properties justice. You can get away with animated series because there's a clear difference in the medium, but by making a Dr. Who version of Star Wars, you end up with this 'uncanny valley' result where you're seeing these epic characters, but the epic soundtrack and production values are missing. Seeing the real Darth Vader in an occasional TV advert? Sure, because there's a clear distinction in terms of what's being presented, it's a novelty, but seeing the real Vader in a Star Wars story just without the screenplay, set design and cinematography etc.? Not for me.

I'd love to know why they used so little of the classic Star Wars musical motifs. Is it 'cos they'd have to pay John Williams a boat load, or is it because they don't want to dilute the magic of those motifs for use in the films? But there was barely any imperial march, barely a hint of Leia's theme, and I'm not sure if the Force theme was used at all. Star Wars fans are suckas for JW's themes and they could have helped paper over some of the other cracks in this series.

The last episode was the best one, but there was still a pretty big flaw in the story. As the Kenobi/Vader confrontation took shape, I was thinking, 'One thing they can't do is just have the two of them walking away at the end of this, something has to happen to justify them both still alive at the end'. But what do we get? Obi-Wan just walking away when he could have ended it, and for no apparent reason. Unless Obi-Wan somehow got some sense that it would someday be important that Anakin survive in order to help Luke against the Emperor, but the ending gave no reason to think that Obi-Wan sensed this. So he should have just killed him to correct the complacency he committed at the end of Revenge of the Sith. But no, he just walks away, leaving Vader free to carry on committing whatever atrocities he likes for the next 10 years. That's twice that Obi-Wan has set out to kill Vader and twice that he's failed to finish the job. The first time was understandable, he assumed he had done the job and didn't want to watch Anakin's demise. But what was his excuse the second time?
