The Last Jedi is the only interesting new SW movie
Totally agree.

They could have gone with such an amazing direction but they HAD to play it safe and used old stupid plot points.

No risk at all, and literally everything that is coming out of this universe will be based on the original trilogy. No fucking guts.

It was never solid. It had some good cinematography, and had had an an interesting idea in that Luke wanted for the Jedi to end, but RJ pussed out and had Luke do a complete 180 at the last second because... reasons. Rey could have joined Kylo, but again, RJ pussed out. Finn should have become a Jedi, etc. Oh, and they had Luke die because he used the Force too hard. :rofl:

TLJ was so terrible and turned so many people off to the franchise that the very next SW movie LOST money. :rofl:

Real talk... after watching it, I appreciated the creative moves. RJ did some weird shit, but at the time it seemed bold, and there was definitely an excitement afterwards of, man, I can't imagine where they're going to take this story. Even Luke dying hit me in the feels and really made me think about what could happen. Then the third one came out and I realized, wow, RJ did indeed fuck up this entire franchise pretty bad. I mean, it was Kathleen Kennedy more than anything, but I digress.

Yeah, but don't minimize the very real problems Solo had in isolation. That project was a mistake from the very beginning.

RJ laid out a path for greatness and JJ chickened the fuck out and went with OMG, SHE IS A PALPATINE! KYLO IS REDEEMED, AND FALLS IN LOVE WITH REY!

I mostly like it so far. The acting and dialogue besides McGregor's is mostly not so good though.

had to google the timeline bc I was trying to figure out why Leia was 4.

the movie itself was pretty fun and well made

One should be able to criticize TLJ without getting compared to YT anti-SJWs.

Those people are something to watch out for, but acting like they comprise all of TLJ's detractors is dishonest.

TLJ isn't perfect but either you follow follow the EXTREMELY generic plotlines set up in TFA or you subvert everything in the most interesting way you can. Rian Johnson tried to do the latter and it was a million times more interesting than anything Abrams & Kasdan would've done

It's probably why LucasFilms gave it to Rian Johnson. There were no plans for what to do with the trilogy - TFA was purely made as a formulaic product that would remind people of the original trilogy. They fucked themselves

I’m enjoying it so far. It’s fantastic to see Ewan reprise his role since he was the best part of the prequels. However, is nobody else wondering how a little kid whose top speed is half a mile per hour able to outrun all these adults??? It annoys me and takes me out of the moment.

One thing I just realized...is how Ob1 has basically given up being a Jedi...but he's supposed to be actively protecting Luke...how if he can't even muster enough force to hold a 10-year old girl? Which means he's not actively training... :wtf:

I think the idea is that is he uses the force the Empire's agents will eventually sense him and/or rumors will spread that exists.

All these acronyms broke my brain trying to remember what they meant. When I saw FA, I initially thought Full Auto before looking it up and realizing it was The Force Awakens. That said, I believe Star Wars: Full Auto needs to be made and it needs to be R-rated, with no blasters but so much gunpowder and gore. It could save the Star Wars franchise.

But how would he be able to protect Luke though if it came to needing actual protection? Kinda makes no sense when you start thinking about it.

Also...how does Reva know who Anakin Skywalker is and that he's now Darth Vader? One could possibly assume that she's the black girl from the beginning flashback and that she's angry about being abandoned or whatever. But the age doesn't match, so maybe that's her sister or something. I dunno, this shit is just coming off as stupid already. :hsd:

But I also think that like others have said, her character just seems "off". Like all the inquisitors have like distinct accents, and then here she comes just sounding like an angry black chick from Philly. :rofl:
