I feel like I have to disagree with a lot of the people here. However this is a community built on Grognardery, and so that is to be expected. In many ways I think it is quite similar to Fallout 3 in many regards, in the sense that Rian Johnson, and Disney, seem to not understand many of the core themes and ideas of the original. Despite this, I do think it is a good movie, just not a good Star Wars movie, this is due to some excellent performances be it Benicio Del Toro, Andy Serkis, or Kylo Ren. However, it is crucially I believe a good movie not a great one, because I believe this is as the youtuber Sideways put it "They don't know what they are doing". I.e. Disney is writing the script safe. In the first movie they made an inoffensive movie with lots of show don't tell, and there was a bit of backlash so they mixed it up, and likely for the third film will change it up again. The reason for this is likely due to what Matt Colville describes as the fact that Disney don't think that Star Wars is about anything, they see a universe and a fanbase, and wonder how to milk it. Fundamentally like Fallout 1 & 2, the original Star Wars raised interesting questions about our world and how we interact with it, be it machinery in Star Wars, or Greed in Fallout, Disney/Bethesda don't understand this and just see money. As a result, the media we get lacks in originality, as shown with the constant homaging in TFA/Fallout 3 and the subversion of TLJ. However, I will say unlike Emil Pagaillo, Rian Johnson can at least write an interesting story, if not a great one. So while enjoyable as its own thing I don't think that these movies should be seen as a part of Star Wars, they just happen to exist.
