If episode VII is all modernized like the prequels, I hope it ends up something like this.

I wouldn't say that it was good but it was entertaining.

How do people like this? The characters are poorly written, the pacing and tone is all over the place, the dialogue is awful, the CGI sucks, the story feels rushed, the cinematography is terrible, the action is so unbelievable to the point where I lose interest, the plot holes in itself is bad enough but it creates never ending holes in the original trilogy. It's absolutely dreadful, yet people keep defending it!

*spoilers* Satisfies my curiosity about the rise of Darth Vader, although I thought Anakin's dialogue could have been written better in some scenes. Should be more menacing and less like a child's temper tantrum. Maybe this was the choice the actor or director made on set rather than the script. You can see the care and dedication in the showdown scene between Anakin and Obi Wan. The opera scene between Anakin and Palpatine is outstanding from an acting and writer's point of view. This movie starts with a bang and there are some memorable moments, but not as endearing or memorable as moments in the other prequels, in my opinion. Overall, this is a better crafted film than the other Prequels, especially in consideration of the script.

Obviously this is the best of the prequels because it's the one where things finally start happening. Revenge Of The Sith is filled so many great moments in a film that, unfortunately, feels very rushed and convoluted. I enjoy seeing Anaklins turn and the Jedi's fall on screen but it moves way too fast in such a short span of time. Yes, the action is a clear improvement, Ian McDiarmid gives a standout performance, some of the acting is quite powerful towards the end and the opera and window scenes are great. But did we really have to follow such filler subplots with Grievous and the Wookies? And it should be noted two of the emotional releases, with James Earl Jones and the final Anaklin/Obi Wan fight, are quite disappointing. 5/10.

And I don't even hate the Last Jedi (in fact it might be the best Sequel artistically), it's just this film is a lot better

It’s a surprisingly great conclusion to the weak prequels and a satisfying segue to the classic original films.
