Yep. Nothing in the ads or reviews- even by fans- made me want to see another SW movie. Phantom Menace was THAT bad to me.
Out of curiosity, is that every SW movie (including Solo and Rogue One? I thought Solo was decent and Rogue One was cool) and TV shows? Though there were parts of Clone Wars I disliked, overall I enjoyed the series. The Mandalorian was pretty cool too.

I mean, I understand, not everyone likes Star Wars and there were definitely parts in every movie I didn't like. I still watched all 7-9 even though I honestly have no plans to watch them a second time ever in the future. The prequals I just watched the parts that interest me and fast forward the rest. Hah. Just hard to imagine one movie ruining the series so thoroughly as to never watch another in the series.

Rogue One was Dirty Dozen in space. Solo was a train heist in space. Those are not bad things. It's a good thing. I enjoyed them both. I think Solo would have done better is it was not focused on Han Solo.

7-9 had one major problem with me..... POWER JUMP. With little to no training they were doing things that Yoda couldn't / wouldn't ever dream of. Stopping a blaster shot in mid air? Protective shell in deep space? Bah!

But it or something like it had to be done. The stirring of the pot if you will. Afterall, there has to be an evolution of stories or else they become stale.

Just wish they didn't do it this way.

Special effects were awesome however.

In Star Wars the Clone Wars Darth Maul was able to use the force to deflect laser blasts without the usage of a lightsaber. So I suppose stopping one straightup wouldn't be too far of a stretch.

The sad thing is that they could have totally explained this away easily. "With fewer people using the force, the force has grown in power, thus people are able to do more things and thus more people are becoming force sensitive". Or something like that. And BOOM! one line and you got reasons for Finn, for the dude in Rogue One and why people are able to do more powerful things in 7-9 than in previous movies. Is it a perfect solution, no, but I came up with it in like ten seconds. It probably needs a little fleshing out, but that shouldn't be too difficult. Of course some people may not like the explanation, but at least there would be one.

Anyway, I still look forward to Star Wars stuff even if episodes 1,2,3,7,8,9 had major ups and downs because I like the setting well enough. They're no longer automatically movie theatre movies anymore, but I'll probably see them all eventually. (And I'm still looking forward to Mandalorian Season 2; even without Ahsoka Tano, should be cool).

Anyone else seeing these ads with Susan Sarandon and Lynda Carter with their boobs hanging out?
Um... I wish I was.

I installed Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale last weekend (I've been collecting the old D&D videogames lately) and lost a whole day to it. Probably lose a few hours to it again this weekend.

I've seen the ads on this site and others. The Lynda Carter picture is her in a pool for an episode of Battle Of The Stars. Susan is on a fire escape in a suit jacket with nothing under it. They're part of a series of vintage photos.

I watched three whole movies on Netflix tonight. It's been a long time since I've done anything like that. I played Neverwinter, and cleaned up my livingroom during a couple of the movies. I stopped at one point to cook my dinner. Hamburger Helper to which I added mushrooms, onions, and peppers. Then enjoyed while I watched Solo again.

Netflix has a movie called Spenser Confidential. It appears to be based on Spenser for Hire. His sidekick is a man named Hawk.

Edit: It's a pretty good movie. Mark Walberg at his action comedy best.

SFH was a pretty nifty show. I hated how Hawk was the sidekick. But I like how he joined Starfleet and became one of their most important commanding officers.
