Surprised how many of these I didn't get and recognized after I finished (like for some reason I could remember "witch project" but not "Blair," and I somehow didn't see the first clue :P) And by the way, "Inability to Handle Truth" is officially my favorite quiz hint. Ever.

Because, no matter how good he is, Daniel Day Lewis has actually not made that many mainstream films, I was like, "Gangs? No. Lincoln? No. Laundrette? No. My Left Foot? No." So the actual answer is seriously, yep, that's the other one.

May I say, a superb movie quiz encompassing many great movies across many eras.

It was because of that other quiz site that I finally made myself go out and rent 'There Will Be Blood', so I could get all the references.

why? Every good Star Wars movie has to be balanced out by a crappy one? If that's the case, since Empire is the best, why not go for broke and put on The Last Jedi which is clearly the worst.

Level 64

I'm in a rare minority, but I'd take eps 7-9 over eps 1-6 every time. The nostalgia of the original trilogy doesn't do much for me, and frankly, Mark Hamill - though a great human being - just isn't a great actor imho. The prequels were poorly conceived and even more poorly written which undermined what really ought to have been some great films considering the cast and all the latest special effects. If I haven't offended Star Wars fans enough, I'll also say that I like the direction Disney has taken the franchise. They really nailed it. I'm looking forward to seeing what else they can do with the universe.
+1
Level 65

The prequels are unbearable. The originals are definitely the best. I actually liked The Last Jedi, mostly because it is the first film since the originals to take a totally different direction, and doing the same old thing was getting really tired (or long past tired). I am not as nostalgic about or devoted to Star Wars canon as many people, so I don't really care that Rian Johnson broke a bunch of rules. I thought it was an interesting movie. I thought it was good they killed that useless faux emperor in the middle. I thought the arc between Rey and Kylo was interesting, and I liked that for once, the goal wasn't "we need to blow up an indestructible empirical super weapon with a precision strike." Like Empire (the consensus best movie of the lot), it ends with the good guys playing defense. It's just a much more interesting way to tell a story, I think.

Level 80

The Last Jedi was bad for many reasons. Yes, it completely broke Star Wars canon. That's reason enough to hate it on its own. Yes, it completely shat all over Episode 7, casually binned everything that Abrams had set up for the trilogy, which is the dumbest thing you could possibly do for the 2nd part of a trilogy, and that would be reason enough to hate it. Yes, it was weighed down by an obnoxious on-the-nose heavy-handed SJW 3rd-wave feminist political agenda. Is that enough reason to hate it? Meh. I'm personally kind of ambivalent on that point. Maybe.

But... if you took all of that away... it's still just a HORRIBLE movie. Dull. Stupidly and badly written. Illogical. Full of plot holes that make NO sense. Full of characters that you cannot help but loathe. With a 40-minute completely unnecessary extremely boring and simultaneously preachy PSA about rich people going to horse races shoehorned in the middle. Fathead Rian Johnson just did not care. Obviously.

It's like he was intentionally setting out to make a shitty movie and try and destroy the franchise and many of the things he has said in interviews suggest that this is true and not just conspiracy theory.

but all that being said now that I finally saw Rise of Skywalker it might actually be worse than The Last Jedi. It's a close call.

Originaly trilogy is obviously the best. But the prequels, as bad as they were in parts, were still 1000x better than episodes 8 and 9. Episode 7... was bad... but.... not that bad. It was at least as good as Attack of the Clones. Better in some ways. Worse in others.

@martay "The nostalgia of the original trilogy doesn't do much for me". The original sequel can't be nostalgic about itself. It was a whole new thing when it was made. Also, episodes 7 and 9 are nothing if not a whole bunch of nostalgia. Your argument for the most recent trilogy doesn't hold up.

"it was weighed down by an obnoxious on-the-nose heavy-handed SJW 3rd-wave feminist political agenda". I can't believe you just said that. I haven't always agreed with you but this is really pathetic. I wouldn't have guessed you were a misogynistic fanboy.
+1
Level 80
Jul 15, 2020
Right. Everyone who thinks that story or character development should take precedence over misandrist and toxic politics is a misogynistic fanboy.... at least that's what Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson want you to believe. Couldn't possibly be that.. you know... they think that story or character development should take precedence over misandrist and toxic political messages. If you don't like The Room what does that make you? A Nazi incel? Really strong argument.

Oh man. I forgot about that Monte Carlo subplot. That was truly dreadful, and that woman (Rose?) cannot act worth a lick. I didn't like The Force Awakens because it was such an obvious ripoff of A New Hope. It felt pointless. Most of what I remember from The Last Jedi is Kylo Ren, who I thought was a very interesting character. I also liked what they did with Luke. I know most people didn't, but Star Wars is just so played out by now. I was happy to be surprised by what they did with him.

Having typed it out, I actually think I like the Last Jedi precisely *because* it tore down The Force Awakens. I just remember sitting in that theater in 2015 getting increasingly annoyed and disappointed. "Oh, there's a new empire? Oh, they're still on Storm Troopers? Oh, the new emperor is basically a clone of Palpatine? Oh, there's a new Death Star and the goal is to destroy it by exploiting its one weak spot with a daring mission? Oh, the main villain has a key family relationship to the Skywalkers and is a former Jedi prodigy? Oh, there's a charming but arrogant pilot who needs to learn that he's a better man than he thinks? I waited all these years for this?" It was maddening. Snoke in particular felt really insulting, so I was especially happy during the Last Jedi when they just killed him right in the middle of the movie with little fanfare. That moment alone set the Last Jedi above the Force Awakens for me.

If they were going to tear down A Force Awakens then they should have done that in a meeting room or storyboarding session when the directors and producers were sitting around agreeing on a solid blueprint and plan for the entire trilogy before they began filming. Not just ad-libbing in the middle of a 3-part story. Either that or go back after Episode VII was released, announce that it wasn't canon, and start over. As is it's a total mess.
+1
Level 80
Jul 18, 2020
Particularly given that they were already planning to give the reigns back to Abrams for the 3rd installment. So... if they knew that going in... allowing someone to try and completely blow up his plan in the 2nd part just makes this the most poorly planned and executed trilogy in cinematic history. As much as I hate Johnson for what he did and think that he is a horrible overrated hack... if they were going to let him destroy Episode VII with Episode VIII... then they should have just let him do Episode IX, too.

but.. ugh... the whole new trilogy is a trainwreck. Best forgotten about completely.

How rich, talking about the previous movies being poorly written while defending the new trilogy. Adding to that, defending these for going on a new direction when all they did was bank on nostalgia. Yes, even TLJ, which only feinted at going in a new direction, only to go back to good guy rebels vs. evil empire by the end of it, all while achieving the astonishing feat of not only contradicting (or, more blatantly put, shitting all over) the original trilogy and the immediate previous movie, but also doing it to its own story. So much talk about letting go of the past (very subtle, Rian), and then by the end they even drop the pretense of calling the good guys the "Resistance" and just flat out call them "rebels". The movie only pretends to do something new, it's a cop out, and I can't believe how all these TLJ defenders are so blind to this point. It's almost as if they need to believe it's good, to justify their preconceptions.
