I'd be concerned if the Star Wars franchise only consisted of the movies. But between projects like Clone Wars, Jedi: Fallen Order, and The Mandalorian, the franchise is still doing fine.
At least Danvers is an actual Captain.

If option 4 had been worded correctly I would have chosen that one. Should have been:

My disappointment is immeasurable and my Star Wars is ruined.

As it stands, I choose indifference.

All the stuff you are complaining about is a result of KK and RJ. Blame them for ruining Star Wars sequel trilogy.

A system like The Force needs rules and some limitations.

Yeah I always assumed using the force drained a Jedi, they weren't all powerful (like in the video games, you can't just use the force endlessly in the early SW games). If you have a character who is all-powerful then there are no challenges and it's boring. The whole idea behind the OT was that the rebellion were the underdogs- the Empire was supposed to be the all-powerful evil force.

Really it's just the Hollywood conglomerate machine dismantling and digesting another franchise. People in Hollywood with tact and creativity don't get paid to write and direct big budget films. It's all about who can create the most buzz, even if has 0 lasting impact (Ala Jar Jar Abrams.) Star Wars was a left-field hit and any attempts to replicate that without deeply respecting the source material (Perhaps too much, because the source material is ridiculously flawed, but that's what's necessary) are going to be failures.

Since I'm able to recognize that The Force is not a skill tree in an RPG to be levelled up, I think it was handled just fine.

A system like The Force needs rules and some limitations. I mean the old EU jumped the shark as well, but not to the level TLJ/RoS did. And yes TLJ introduced force Skype calls, and soft teleportation. (Rain on Kylos hand)

But goddamn, ROS just dialed it up to eleven. Literal teleportation, and whatever Rey and Kylo were doing, some kind of quantum entanglement? And healing was always a thing, but how can you heal a fatal lightsaber strike through the chest? Does Abrams realize that Sabers atomize whatever they touch? The bone, blood vessels, muscles that Rey stabbed are gone. How do you heal that back?

And like the Holdo maneuver, we now have to ask why this wasn't used before. The Jedi could've f***ing saved Padmé and avoided a huge chunk of the premise of the Empire's rise. Luke could've saved Anakin after he killed Palpatine. (Oh wait, that's right, he didn't kill Palpatine...)

Contrast that with something like Battle Meditation from Kotor. That took a huge strain on Bastilla to do. But Rey can just heal with no cost or strain. (But lol it kills Kylo when he does it)

This f***ing trilogy...

Totally nailed it, it's like a 5 year old was directing the whole sequel trilogy, just horrendous and awful beyond belief. They need to retcon the whole thing and send Rey back to her home planet but she dies on the way back from force steroid abuse. As someone else said at least we have Mando even if it is a monster of the week type show, meh, bleh

Can't believe the apologist replies in the thread. Obey, consume, do not criticise and be ready to get excited for the next product. f***ing pathetic, makes me sick. >:0(
Arrgh. Is this the end of lovable Igniz? Why!? There was no way I could lose! Why!? Why!?

No it did not. It survived the prequels it will survive the sequels.

I liked the "dyad" connection, both in TLJ and RoS. The healing and Palpatine's lightning was silly though.

Rise of Skywalker is a damn shame of a movie. I don't know who is more to blame. The crybabies or Disney themselves.
