It's widely accepted that The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars to grace the silver screen. The movies pacing, twists, and pure iconicism is something the movies have lived in the shadow of since its release.
Now, I don't say this lightly, but Rogue One has done it, it has captured the essence and the feeling of ESB and it's the best movie since. It's dark gritty, and desperate, and not just a Marvel movie is Star Wars clothing, bathed in nostalgia. JJ Abrams take notes.

Melissa Harris Perry has a lot of feelings about Star Wars, primarily that it's racist, because Darth Vader was voiced by a black guy but played by a white guy.
The part where he was totally a black guy whose name was basically James Earl Jones...but while he was black he was terrible and bad and awful and used to cut off white men's hands, and didn't, you know, actually claim his son, but as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good he takes off his mask and he's white.
Maybe she doesn't acknowledge the prequels as being real, and who can blame her for that, but Anakin/Vader is a white guy in those and he kills so many younglings. He also first "claims his son" while he's still "a black guy" (a whole movie before he takes off his mask) and, well, if you've ever heard Darth Vader's on-set voice, you'd understand why they dubbed over it with James Earl Jones:
