I mean the OT was great and all this is undisputed but since then? Since Empire you could say there has been maybe 2 good films and only 1 in the past 30 years.

I saw Rogue One yesterday and while I thought it was a nice change of pace from all Jedi and Sith I thought the movie wasn't that great and was pretty boring for most of it... the whole "OMG It is Star Wars!!!" Doesn't have that big of an effect on me.

P.S Is it me or did JEJ just not sound like Vader in this? Some sort of filter or something? Is it just his age?

Well yeah, he is 85, so of course he's gonna sound a bit different.

Turns out in Rebels he sounds amazing and that they tried to copy the ANH type of voice effect.

Disney just started off SW with a lazy and uninspired movie. They did nothing to build on to lore.
Guardians of the Galaxy ripped off Farscape.

All eight movies have been an unqualified financial success. Even the worst critically rated movie is still ok. Its influence is unmatched. The demand for extracurricular content is unmatched.

I think no matter your point of view, not only can you not call Star Wars a bad franchise, you have to concede it's one of the best.

Disclaimer: that doesn't mean you have to like it.
