ben-hur ...very disappointed in myself.
That being said, Bond mania was at its peak when it came out. It sold a crazy amount of tickets. I knew when I clicked on this quiz that it would probably be on here.
BTW, rewatching these older ones today is a really eye-opening experience. The number of times Bond smacks around, forces himself upon, or creates a meat shield out of the women unfortunate enough to be in the same room with him is quite amazing. Pretty much NONE of these activities would be palatable in a movie produced in the 21st century. Viewed through 2017 eyes, it would come off as misogynist at best, rapey or abusive to most - and yet the Connery Bond is still remembered as suave and debonair.
But Exorcist just seems so corny...I can't manage to be afraid of a little girl making silly voices.
However, I still really enjoyed all 3 prequels. I thought Rogue One was okay, and loved the ending. The Force Awakens I thought kinda sucked but at the same time I was entertained enough that I went back to see it a 2nd time in IMAX.
On the other hand, The Last Jedi was so bad I was fidgeting in my seat the entire time, I will never see it again, and it has completely destroyed my interest in seeing anything else Star Wars related. Going to skip Episode 9 because of that POS.
Some people argue that if it were a standalone film, The Last Jedi would be a great film or at least better than most other Star Wars films. I disagree. I think TLJ would still suck even if it didn't simultaneously break Star Wars canon, destroy the trilogy arc it's in the middle of, and betray the saga's lore and legacy. And Rise of Skywalker is of course just amateurish crap. But TFA is indeed better if judged individually.
