I disagree. I left both feeling like it was nice they were still trying to make Star Wars films, but they hadn't succeeded in making one for me. However I accept that I'm not the target audience, far more so now than for episode 1.
What really irks me about 7 & much more so with 8 is how we were teased with a luke/leia/han/chewbacca/c3po/r2d2 reunion. They could have shown 3 hours of them trying to relive their youth while dealing with the effects of aging and I would have loved it.
There was 1 brief scene with leia and han in 7 and 2 brief scenes with luke, one with leia and one with r2d2, in 8. I don't want to hate it, but I think they managed to compete with midichlorians and darth vaders NOOOOOOOOOO for worst star wars ever.
