lastly are the two movies ark of truth and continuum any good?
If you get to the end of Season 10 and you still have to ask the question, then you can probably skip 'em. It's more SG-1, which can only be a good thing, IMO. But if you didn't find the show particularly engaging towards the end, these movies won't change your mind.
One important caveat, the S9/10 Arc, is not tied up at the end of S10, it is tied up in The Ark of Truth
Yes, but not in a way that is especially satisfying. Sometimes, it seemed like the show in the later seasons was just a series of quests to find the next big Ancient superweapon. First you have the Lost City in Season 7, then the Temple at Dakara in Season 8, then Merlin's weapon in Seasons 9 & 10, then the Ark of Truth in "The Ark of Truth."

Like I said, if you're not already a big fan and not already interested in seeing how the Orii story arc ends, there's not much reason to bother with "The Ark of Truth."

And "Continuum" is mostly just a rip-off of "Mobius."

Seasons 6-8 each have their rough patches, but are never as bad as, say, season 1 or 2.
I wouldn't say Season 2 was bad at all. Season 1 was pretty rocky but ended well with "There but for the Grace of God" & "Within the Serpent's Grasp." And Season 2 has one of my all-time favorite episodes, "1969"!

Season 9 and 10 feel different, but that is because of RDA leaving the show and Claudia Black becoming a regular.
In some ways, RDA leaving made the show better because then at least the show wasn't constantly straining for ways to keep O'Neill on the show while giving RDA as little screen time as possible.

I was particularly fond of Atlantis season 1 because of its tone. The expedition was completely cut off from Earth in a galaxy where they didn't really understand the rules yet, facing the nigh unstoppable wraith. The season felt like it had a well-defined arc from arriving in Atlantis and awakening the wraith, leading to the inevitable attack at the end. Taken as a whole, it's probably my favorite single season of the franchise.

For me, the problem with Atlantis post season 1 was that the show never really felt like it knew where it was going to me. The constant cast changes and the introduction of newer antagonists felt like desperation to me. That's not to say that I thought the average quality of the episodes went down over time, but rather that the show felt somewhat less than the sum of its parts. Despite the huge body count racked up by the end, the team felt no closer to achieving their goals than they had at the start of season two. Standalone episodes had a feel to me of "we've already seen this".
There's something to that. I'd certainly say that Season 1 was the best season of Stargate Atlantis. In fact, I'd probably agree that it's the best single season in the entire franchise. However, I think there's a lot to like in the later seasons as well. Especially Seasons 4 & 5.
