Plus I have idea why you would think not thinking a movie is great is some kind of a hot take. IMO, there's only one great SW movie.
I guess I should explain my meaning of "great" since that word is used too much. Maybe none of the SW movies are truly great when compared to objectively great movies. I guess I should say good more often than great. That's fine. I think ESB was the best SW movie, but I still think RotJ and ANH are good SW movies. I still enjoy watching them. I think taken all together the original SW trilogy (episodes 4-6) is great. Just my opinion. I know they don't compare to truly great movies like The Godfather.
I have no love for the prequel movies -- none. They're awful on many levels. The special effects look worse now, and the terrible acting is even more noticeable as an adult. I'm glad George Lucas no longer has anything to do with SW. I think the Disney era SW movies are better than the prequel trilogy, but that's not a very high bar lol.
I actually like the Marvel cinematic universe and most of the Marvel movies. I wouldn't call them great either, but many of them range from good to very good. I really enjoyed Dr. Strange, Ant-man, Spiderman: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, CA: TWS, GotG: Vol. 1, etc. I've read nothing but good things for Black Panther, and that looks like another successful Marvel movie. I don't mind how many movies Marvel and Disney release in a calendar year because I trust them to make a good movie and hire the right director.
I don't feel that way about Disney and SW right now, and I'm worried they're ramping up SW projects before getting someone (currently Kathleen Kennedy) I really trust to helm the ship so to speak like Marvel Studios has with Kevin Feige. I don't like what K. Kennedy and company have done so far with the SW universe. Maybe Solo will be awesome, but I doubt it.
