    I may be biased, but you're right

    Ahsoka went from a bad character to a good character to a terrible character in her Star Wars tenure

    When you watch the OT and turn off the nostalgia parts of your brain, there are a lot of really bad moments. The really great moments are better in the PT than in the OT. Put another way, in the PT, the highs were higher and the lows were lower.

    The PT universe was much more interesting but...
    Jabbing spitting at the gong and the two headed announcer
    The droid factory scene
    Lucas writing dialogue...for anyone

    I really like Solo

    R1 had way too much going on in the plot, but is still probably my favorite movie right now.

    I'm all good with Filoni's Ahsoka crush...

    But Filoni went too far with the Mortis arc in TCW and the World Between Worlds in rebels

    The Darth Vader hallway scene in Rogue One was my least favorite part of a very mediocre movie.

    The Praetorian Guards are awkward and stupid looking - like Lego Ninjago characters. Their fight with Rey and Kylo was just as boring as the fathier chase.

    I like the Special Edition ending to ROTJ better than Yub Nub.

    I just read 'How to Win Friends and Influence People' . . . I think it's working.

    I agree with the first one, but as for the others... I mean, how can anyone hate Yub Nub?

    For my hot take, I like silly Star Wars. The trash compactor scene was my favorite as a kid, and ever since then, I have loved every silly and unnecessary scene in a Star Wars movie from Bor Gullet's introduction to the Rathtar escape.

    I had my heart surgically replaced with a lump of coal back in the 90s. Clean burning coal though, because I'm thoughtful.

    So I just picked up Vector Prime and see there are like 19 books in the series. Thanks I like the idea of SW horror/hunter killer murders.

    can't argue with that. This thread is wonderfully cathartic. It's like the cantina fight club.

    Hot takes? Oh dear... here goes :p

    Qui-Gon Jinn is horribly inept in TPM, suspiciously so, even... It should've been him who ordered the clone army on his former master's behalf! :eek:
    (Also, Liam Neeson is overrated as an actor) :(

    Rose Tico is awesome :cool:

    I wish for new and further extended versions of all SW films (to fix old attempts and to expand movie-canon further where fitting) :rolleyes:

    Darth Vader was always funny & corny. His portrayal in Rogue One is spot on! ;)

    Oh, and I like "Jedi Rocks" :oops:

    I think the fight scene is cool, but you're right- despite their slight resemblance to Royal Guards, they do feel like they come from that era of LEGO. :p

    This might be the only one to actually rustle my jimmies. ;)

    Durge is a cooler villain than Asajj Ventress and it's criminal that he wasn't brought into canon.

    Here's one...

    The throne room scenes in ROTJ have plenty of great dialogue but the actual duel between Luke and Vader is embarrassingly bad, although Ani vs Obi in ep.3 is still worse.

    If by 'my mind' you mean 'this post' and by 'change' you mean 'like' - then I will easily do so. I believe that's what chess players refer to as "check mark".

    There's no more heat to be had. This thread has taken it all. What's the opposite of a hot take? Is it a cold give? It should be. People should have been nicer to Ahmed Best: COLD GIVE!
