I think the fourth (technically first) movie- A new hope is my favorite. I don't like the newest ones near as much and if you've not seen them, only do it if you're really bored.

If you mean the sequels then yeah, I can't stand them

The Force Awakens and the following were pretty trash

Yep. Only got worse from there too. Rogue one was good and solo was alright, but the last jedi and the rise of Skywalker were terrible.

I like all Star Wars movies, to varying degrees. I keep going back to Rogue One, and truly consider it to be a near masterpiece in the Star Wars canon. Sure, it has a few flaws, but it is just so good. It has a certain tone and visual appeal that stand out from the other films.

I thought Rogue One was good. I think it's a little overrated imo but I like how it wasn't afraid to take risks and kill of some main characters. I also like how for the most part it respected star wars lore, and it had some great action. The characters were likeable as well, and the premise of it's plot was neat because it served to enrich A New Hope a little. I'm excited for what they will do in the upcoming Cassian Andor series. Solo was not as good but it was alright, even though it had some silly choices in it like how Han got his name, and the annoying droid that Lando owned.
