If TROS turns out to be worse than TLJ(and even TFA) then POTA might take the crown...we'll see though.

Planet of the Apes... I really need to watch that trilogy. As it stands, the sequel Star Wars trilogy is in the lead thus far. But I have indeed been sleeping on POTA.

Wait, are people in here saying that the ST is the best trilogy this decade ?

Is that you people doing ?

Same-ish. As it stands, it's between SW and John Wick as far as trilogies I've seen through this decade, and they're pretty much neck and neck at this point.

Yeah critics wise it’s between apes and Star Wars. Avengers would but it’s a quadrilogy so that discounts it. All sorts of other technicality’s. Fan wise there’s more competition for best trilogy’s of the decade

This new EW pic of the trio in the worm tunnel def supports the sandworm encounter described in the leaks

It will likely go down as both the best reviewed and highest grossing trilogy of the 3 trilogies. Hope you enjoy that fact.
I think so too but you have to take into account that there's inflation and how there are more people that go to the movies so it doesn't mean much.

How are we measuring best reviewed though? Rotten Tomatoes? Metacritic score?

I definitely think this trilogy will be considered somewhere between the PT and OT for fans. Better than the PT but much worse than the OT.

And it's not inconceivable that TROS reviews worse than ROTJ.

I mean so far I would argue it’s got a pretty strong case for the title two films in.

That and the best trilogy of this decade 😉
Captain America trilogy (Besides POTA) is better.

Jesus Christ the leaks are 100% true

I really fucked myself with this movie. Fuck
You mean fucked yourself in that you spoiled the whole movie for yourself?

Never to be seen again.

Next time something big is on the horizon, let me know if you want my prediction on whether or not inevitable alleged leaks are all real or not. If it’s something I’ll spoil myself on, I’ll be happy to help out.

I don’t have too many talents in this world, but for one reason or another I have always been able to tell when a leak is legitimate, lmao.

Civil War hurt the average for Cap America for me although it has a solid case. I'd say the top 3 are 1. Sequel Trilogy (so far) 2. POTA 3. Cap America.


Nothing else comes close.

The First Avenger is by far the weakest for me and Civil War is my favorite movie of the MCU. It’s difficult for me to think of it as a real trilogy anyway though.

Anakin fights above lava and is burned alive, found by Palpatine and reborn as Darth Vader.



Kylo Ren in the cleansing water that leads to his redemption. He is defeated but resurrected by a Palpatine and reborn as Ben Solo once again.

I just hope they pull it off. The inciting incident seems to be Leia’s death and Rey’s unwillingness to turn to the dark side by healing him.

I still think the stabbing him then healing is a bit of a cheat. It allows Rey to act on her darkest impulses and then just reverse the effects without consequence to herself or her descent to the dark side. This scene could he really bad if not executed well

Don’t mean to pick up any one poster in particular, but I am so excited for Rey Randomers in the non-spoiler threads to eat crow.

“Rey being a nobody is a wonderful dramatical twist for the character, as it is exactly the oposite of what she wants and expects. It also shows her that she should stop doing what she has been doing: searching for an authorative figure to lead her and to take her own responsabilities.
From a bigger standpoint it also tells us the Force can be strong with anyone and isn’t necessarily tied to a name or heritage. Which is further enforced by Broom Kid at the end.

Retconning this would just diminish this amazing moment in TLJ so fucking hard. It would also not be very good storytelling (unless they surprise me) as it would mean nothing dramatically for the character. It would have a high chance of being a twist for the twist, a plot beat that doesn’t mean anything important. It would be the ‘Leia is your sister’ of the ST.”

I'm most curious to see how Crossing Eden will react.

Why is it crow if they liked that development?

I loved Rey Random but also strongly disagree that her being related to Palpatine (whatever that relation may be) would do nothing for her character.

I don’t care if people prefer Rey Random, I’ve just been tired of people arguing relentlessly that it’s the only thing that makes sense for Rey and that it’s a done deal. It always seemed to be obvious to me that there was something more planned for her.

Rey being of lineage makes more sense since considering how strong she was demonstrated to be and I actually prefer that. That being said her being a random wasn't too bad either. Showed a person strong in the force could be anyone really. I mean anyone on the council was top tier and not necessarily of lineage.

Is the Ben resurrection thing confirmed now? Last I read he fell down a pit and was never seen again lmao

The pit is after he’s reborn

I think that’s fair. Despite it being the predicable and expected route, i think it prob would have been better if she was Luke’s daughter. Would have played right into her abandonment issues and would have been a great source of drama and conflict between them on the island.

Why does a different story direction make them eat crow? It doesn't change what they like and their feelings on it.

I was possibly a bigger fan of “Rey the Nobody” than most on this site tbh; I have written copiously as to why it meant so much to me. But honestly it’s whatever at this point; I can take some solace in the fact that she has already gone through that sort of arc regardless of her true lineage.

That’s definitely what I was hoping for myself, and I have to eat crow myself for making fun of the Rey Palpatine theories in 2015. Now that I’ve had time to think about it though I actually think her being a Palpatine is more interesting.
