THIS. She was the low point of the series, not because she was poorly performed or conceived, but because she’s just a fucking awful person for the most part.

Empire just raised the bar on everything and so effectively moved the story ahead. And remarkably, every Star Wars movie since has been a disappointment. But we all keep going because… Read more
