Laser guns called phasers, fantasy in their form: (Star Wars blasters).
Going faster than the speed of light, debatably fantasy: Warp speed (Star Wars hyper space)
Star Trek had the transporter, which just plain makes no scientific sense.
There's very little"science" fiction that applies any science at all. Hell, A Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy mentioned more science than Star Trek.
My favorite: noise in space.
For the record, I don't think Rogue One is anything special, but it is head and shoulders above those three abominations that are commonly known as the prequels.
The reviews I've looked at for Ep 9 make it sound incredibly stupid, maybe only marginally better than Ep 8. I'm going to pass on ever seeing it I think. I'll still enjoy the original trilogy from time to time and I finally got around to giving the Mandalorian a 2nd chance and it was actually okay.
My last surviving hope for Star Wars would be that... say 10 or 15 years from now, someone has the vision to say "you know what? Those prequels and sequels all could have been great but really sucked, let's redo the whole thing"
Then move on to do the sequel trilogy, drawing from the old canon people loved and Lucas' original plan, with no inexplicably powerful First Order, no even more ridiculous Last Order, no OP Mary Sues, no SJW politics, no wink wink nudge nudge fan-fiction style jokes, no derivative lazy plots, and a story that makes sense and is consistent through all 3 films.
It's just sad that the original cast will be too old to be in it if it happens.
Whilst The Last Jedi is probably a perfectly watchable film if you are only vague aware of SW, anyone who knows much about it can see the utter contempt the Director and Studio showed for the entire history and back story of the franchise. There is so much wrong the film it’s hard to know where to start. After I watched it I was gobsmacked at how much had been changed for no real reason and for very little discernible benefit. All that so we could have a very crap Sci Fi version of ‘Speed in space’.
I haven’t seen the last film, nor have I watched the Solo film, I think I’ll just leave Star Wars as it’s just become something I don’t recognise and it just disappoints me how badly it has been done over.
Rogue One took place in the Star Wars universe but Darth Vader was just a background character in it. It's not part of the main saga. It's not Star Wars: Rogue One. It's Rogue One (a Star Wars story).
8: The Last Jedi
9: From His Nap
A pox on you, George Lucas, for vandalizing your own masterpiece!
The only saving grace for the Phantom Menace was Darth Maul and he only got like 6 minutes of screen time.
but you know what is not good? THE FORCE UNLEASHED ISNT CANON ANYMORE!
