It feels the most consistently exciting and entertaining throughout, the most fun, of all of them. It's like the best summation of what those movies should be. Rogue One is the most mature of them, and Empire is the best of the OT.

This movie trends on Twitter every few months, which after all these years, is quite impressive (for a Disney SW movie)

I've noticed that too, especially since Gary Whitta* is on there and will sometimes chime in.

The reworking of the script did make the first two thirds feel a bit "moving the chess pieces into place", but I think it goes better with rewatches, knowing what's going to happen to everyone.
And the last act absolutely makes up for it. It's a sliced of fried gold.



*I'm always confounded how he was a writer on this which is one of my favorite movies ever, but also on one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my entire life (Book of Eli).
