The new movies have been the complete antithesis of fun. Even the prequels are kind of entertaining if you're a kid, and the trainwreck itself was worth talking about, but the Disney Star Wars movies are worse than that. They're boring and bland forgettable nothingness to the point that it subconsciously killed my interest in the franchise in a way not even the prequels could do.
I remember the first thought in my mind after watching the first new movie was "It wasn't a trainwreck I guess" and as I continued to try and sort out whether I thought the movie was good or bad, I realized the reason why it was so hard is because it's so utterly devoid of anything to think about. It was a movie about nothing that briefly hides the fact that it's about nothing because it's constructed entirely of previous content in the series that your brain initially associates with things that were once something. What's worse it's all put together in the same exact formula that JJ Abrams already used with the Star Trek reboot.
They quite possibly did the worst thing they could do by following up 3 disasterous prequels with an unbelievably boring reboot. If ever there was a time you'd have a lot of leeway to take risks, it's after the guy before you already raped a beloved series so hard, you don't have to worry about living in the shadow of the first three movies.
