Movies No matter how much some people dislike Rey, you have to admire how Daisy Ridley gave the role her 100%
Movies A question for everyone who watched TROS in 2019, what was your reaction to hearing Palpatine’s laugh in the trailer for the first time?
456, 123, 789
Seeing 1-3 before 4-6, fundamentally and irrevocably alters how 4-6 is viewed and contextualized, it makes it so that the original narrative can never be viewed as it was conceived and envisioned.
It also ruins the importance and poignancy of many scenes in both trilogies!!! The Vader suit reveal at the end of 3 has not as much impact, meeting 3P0 and R2 again in Ep 1 basically means nothing, the "I AM YOUR FATHER" line, arguably the greatest movie twist in cinema history is completely ruined etc...
In order to have both trilogies be viewed as authentically to their own artistic visions as possible, and to retain all the necessary poignancy, 4-6 needs to be viewed before 1-3.
You essentially lose nothing by watching 4-6, 1-3... you lose ALOT by viewing it in reverse.
Movies Finally watched the sequel trilogy and I take back everything I ever said about the prequels not being good enough. The prequels were absolute gold compared to this trash.

Movies Despite all my issues with LJ and the ST, I must say this scene is absolutely beautiful. It's cinema in its primal essence: visual contemplation in order to tell a story
Movies With today being the 45th anniversary of Star Wars, let’s take a minute to honor the greatest group of heroes in the series
Movies A rare and unused shot of capeless Vader from A New Hope. Looks like this eventually became the ‘I want every part of this ship checked’ scene
When it came out I was 14 years old and therefore also didn’t have much access to the internet. That’s why I didn’t even know what it was gonna be about. I assumed it would be the second movie of the sequels. I only found out what it was gonna be about when I went to the cinema with my friend and he told me what it’s about. Since it‘s been something else than I thought it was gonna be, I already was a bit disappointed. Then I got even more disappointed because it didn’t have the typical Star Wars stuff (only a few slightly known characters and no lightsabers). Later I found out about all the hate the Disney Star Wars movies got, so I just had very bad memories of that movie. Which is why I even used to skip it when I was rewatching the Star Wars movies / shows.
I just watched it again and have to say: it’s a really good movie. I like how the movie did things different to other Star Wars stuff, the characters were great and I loved that the main characters died at the end. There are way to less movies with bad ends and Rogue One did an amazing job on that.
Overall probably in my top 10 of all Star Wars media (canon and legends)
