While i don't know about everyone else, I'm getting tired of all the "morally gray" stories that are out there. Sometimes it's nice to have a very clear and simple story of good vs evil.
As for me, i don't think the prequels did a single thing better over the originals, though they are not as bad as people make them out to be. It's funny how some people are looking fondly at them now, after how bad 7 and 8 (mostly 8) was.
Ironically, the original trilogy transformed into a story of a son trying to save and surpass his father while still being fun, exciting, enchanting, and entertaining.
The prequels at the very least felt magical, and had that enchanting star wars atmosphere from the original and there was a sense of direction and story threads building up from one another unlike the Disney Star Wars with no specific direction. The issue were poor dialogues, terrible love story, 1 and 3 had bad pacing Imo, too much cgi and lack of real set, and uneven quality in directing.
Watched Solo a star wars story... I was pleasantly surprised. There are issues like the war and depressive atmosphere from Rogue One, and the Sjw droid making me cringe non stop. Apart from these cons, the film was well paced, fun, and felt more like a star wars film with magical moments, good dialogues, great action sequences reminiscent of Indiana Jones and the original trilogy, great banter and comebacks between the characters especially when they deliver exposition( which was awkward in the Last jedi
I liked the actor that Han more than I thought I would and he actually fits a younger more naive version of Solo. In likability ranking, he is above Shia LaBeouf (ok that's not much of a standard) but below Ingruber who is more charismatic, and handsome . Donald Glover was good as Lando and I like the banter with Solo and the other characters. Emilia Clarke was .
Definitely a good time.
