Jack Reacher has one of the most incredible opening sequences I’ve ever seen. It’s a really good movie.

Kylo Ren is the second best Star Wars villain after Sidious.

Awakens has the best Han and Jedi has the best Leia and Luke in the entire series.

Jack Reacher (the first one) is fucking amazing, even if it has some quirky moments and weird performances. But the action is so thoughtful and interesting, I would even say that it's one of the best action films if the decade.
Love Jack Reacher as well. Sequel not so much.

Empire Strikes Back has the best Han, Return of the Jedi the best Luke (possibly also best in Empire Strikes Back lol) and Leia is best in Empire Strikes Back and TLJ.

Empire Strikes Back is also still the best Star Wars film
Empire Strikes Back

Scorsese (2000-2019) > Scorsese (1970-1999)

The Irishman is his seventh masterpiece in a row which is a landmark no one else has achieved that I'm aware of.

Truly the one and only goat.

It has been said Scorsese has made a masterpiece per decade. People seem to think The Irishman continued this streak. I don't agree but that's what some people are saying. But your claim is entirely too much and you know it. Nobody makes seven masterpieces let alone in a row. I don't what cameras and film stock he used on Taxi Driver and Raging Bull but they still look fucking incredible. His recent films looks bland in comparison.

The 2010s is Scorsese’s best decade. Shutter Island, Hugo, Wolf of Wall Street, Silence, and now Irishman. He just keeps killing it. With more work on docs and an Emmy win for Boardwalk Empire. Kind of iffy on his 2000s output though.
