Just saw Rise of Skywalker

Just saw The Rise of Skywalker.

The story's a bit messy. 

Not as good as The Last Jedi, which I absolutely loved and rate higher than Empire Strikes Back.

Palpatine being alive wasn't foreshadowed in the previous films. All we get is the opening Star Wars narrator scroll. I got a feeling his return wasn't actually decided until Rise of Skywalker was being planned.

So this is how I rank the nine films:
Last Jedi
Empire Strikes Back 
Return of the Jedi
A New Hope 
Force Awakens
Revenge of the Sith
Backstroke of the West
Rise of Skywalker
Phantom Menace
Attack of the Clones (George, are you serious?)

I liked the movie. Though at 2hrs22 min (plus all of those pre-views) it exceeded my limits, and I had to guess on when the best time for a break was.

I guessed the plot point wrong: Rey and Ben are not twins separated at birth.
But the movie brought the whole saga around to an end

Just a quick question: Are light sabers built with different color lights, or do they reflect the inner powers of the Jedi/Sith? i.e. Blue is good, red is bad... But what other colors can there be? What other colors have there been?

PS: I know that Carrie Fisher had died before this movie came out, and they did a good job putting her in, but didn't another actor die? I mean besides Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. Someone who's role was entirely CGI in the latest movie.
