Rise of Skywalker as the top of the Skywalker triology?

Even with the thoughtless inclusion of Emperor Palpatine...with no explanation of how he got hooked up to and who hooked him up to life support?!

I watched the film three times and I can't forgive JJ for it.

I don't think it was a thoughtless inclusion- indeed, I'm sure a massive amount of thought went into it.
The problem lies squarely with Rian Johnson's disaster The Last Jedi. He largely ignored most of the set-ups in TFA and made a very insular movie. That left JJ with the unenviable task of telling a story, within a story and yet end not only a trilogy, but an entire trilogy of trilogies all within one film. He was just left with too much to do (he had considered releasing it in 2 parts, like the last Harry Potter movie but ultimately decided it wouldn't have been within keeping with the trilogy pattern). Then George Lucas came on board right at the end and Disney ordered cuts and changes. I agreed the Palpatine story arc was ridiculous. The villain in TRoS should have been Darth Plageuis to tie it in with the beginning of the story.

I knew that could be controversial. IMHO, The Last Jedi was too heavy. The "Luke teaching Rey to be a jedi" scenes are so dark and boring that when I watch again that movie at home those scenes I just fast forward. I didn't enjoy it enough.

My premise is that any trilogy couldn't be as good as the first (released) one. Why? Maybe because Lucas was at his best creative moment. (and he didn't was even enough involved in the last one so you guys just fill the blanks). And because, to me, Star Wars was just entertainment seasoned with mythology, action, drama and humor. I mean no Star Wars movie will ever be Citizen Kane. And it doesn't have to be. Another reason... because the first trilogy came in the right moment: Hollywood right moment, the novelty of these new movies and technology, and my right moment (my teenage, I was hungry of heroes, or anti heroes and Solo fit perfect *).

So RoS was a nice try to go back to that, of course not the best try and probably filled with lot of faults in its story, scenes, characters, etc. But even my fave movie, ESB is filled with several faults too. And since it wasn't "that moment" any more. Any attempt to return to that feeling would not be successful. And any attempt to do a different thing would generate the reaction "Hey! this is not Star Wars!"

There could be a lot of reasons I could add, but... so as not to bore you, call me crazy but I just enjoyed RoS more than the previous 2 films.

(*) Yes, they killing Han Solo was the reason The Force Awakens was not my top movie of that trilogy. I still can't forgive them!!!

I could only add '1979' by Smashing Pumpkins (brilliant song), January, February' by Barbara Dickson (also brilliant song), 'Manic Monday' by The Bangles (yet another brilliant song).

I'm sure I'm forgetting one.....
Interesting list. Like me, I see you also live in the 70's and relish in its greatness. But I agree Don's 1984 album is one of the best of the 80's. I could never rank all albums together. I would have to put them in decades. Bella Donna and Building The Perfect Beast would be on the top 10 80's album list along with Back in Black (AC DC). Under Lock and Key (Dokken), Tattoo You (Stones) and others I would have to think too hard about

The 70's(and early 80's - but not much hair metal) are my favorite decade(s) of music.

When I list top 10, I think of albums I was OBSESSED with. Listened to EVERY SINGLE DAY for a year or more. Building The Perfect Beast was certainly one of those. All of those were, actually.

I know probably no one here even knows who David Nail is. Country(whatever that is these days) singer with an incredibly sad voice. He suffers from depression, and it comes through in his music(that sounds like a horrible description of music, but it pulls me in...I revel in the sadness). Ten years ago my friend turned me onto his first album, and I became obsessed. He had maybe 5 hits, but has since lost his record deal. He's playing at the Nashville Palace a week from today, and I'm so excited to go see him!
