So Leia lives? Are they just going to write the last living person from the original trilogy with a little blurb in the opening crawl in the next movie? They've already said they're not putting her in with digital effects.


Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
They’re probably waiting to see what House of Cards does with Spacey, then they’ll just copy that.

Leia’s Force-fueled flight through the vacuum of space was probably my least favorite part of the movie. The fight between Rey/Kylo and the Praetorian Guards was my favorite.


The last sentence of your post is exactly correct.

SPOILERZ ALERT: Some stuff you probably missed the first time you saw The Last Jedi

I missed every one of these even the second time around--especially #5.

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
I'm kind of excited to see what they'll do with Episode IX now that they're not tethered to the original trilogy as part of the main plot. There's enough between Rey/Kylo (where this movie really works) to carry the next entry. And they still need to figure out what to do with Finn--I was kind of hoping he'd sacrifice himself into that battering ram cannon.

Without spoilering anything for me here, I'm curious as to why it's gotten some low exit polls from audience members.

I assume it's mostly to do with that absurd 2:40 run time?

I think there are some plot points that could've been avoided altogether. It's a good movie if you don't get too mired in comparing it to any of the original trilogy (especially ESB). First time I saw it I en joyed it but I think that had to do with being excited about it. Then I saw it a second time and tried to pick it apart. My wife saw it with me both times and said there was too much going on with the multiple plot lines. It's kinda messy and stupid in parts but when it hits it really hits the mark.

Does any of that clear it up for you without spoilering it?

I'm glad I didn't read Angus' review before I saw it. Jesus, dude. Pick nits much?

The shoulder brush was fucking awesome.

Killing Snoke would have made more sense if he had killed Leia first, then he'd be a genuine villain.


I thought it was fine. I liked it more than Force Awakens, because it wasn't a direct copy again.

I seen this last night and realized the following: I like space battles and hate single combat with lightsabers.

Explains why I like Rogue One a lot better than this.

Rogue One’s final 25 minutes were awesome.

I saw VIII again today and liked it a little better the second time, but not so much it moved above any of the original trilogy. I’d rate them...

IV
V
VII
VI (don’t @ me)
VIII
Rogue One
III
II

Why do you like clones better than menace? I realize this is a what turd is better question but clones was clearly the worst turd.

Clones is so bad I can't believe 31 and Balls haven't had a three page debate as to who loved it more and which one of them isn't a child.

Meh, you could put Clones and Phantom Menace in a tie below Weekend at Bernie's 2 and I wouldn't argue with you, but for me shitty young Anakin puts Phantom Menace below Clones. I also like that Clones was the first time we saw Flippy Yoda. You're right though, they're both horrible and I don't want to waste energy debating the levels of awfulness. Anyone who has them in the bottom two in any order is okay with me.

Saw this today. Overall I would say I was disappointed. I think it didn't really advance the story and there were several plot points and story lines that were just not advanced. I didn't get it.

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
The whole casino and code breaker thing sucked. It was a waste of time and the casino looked stupid. At least the Cantina back in the day had aliens in it. Carrie Fisher flying through space was gay.
And the main bad guy actually didn't do anything bad that we saw. How powerful could he be if he got killed by a light saber sneak attack? It didn't make any sense. And why did Yoda show up right then? Why not Obi Wan? Where we you like 20 years ago, broseph?

My thoughts:

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
1. Del Toro is clearly Mexican stuttering Lando. That's gay, but it might work. The whole 30 minute red herring of getting him and saving everyone while Laura dern was actually saving everyone was annoying

2. Ok why didn't Dern light speed ram the destroyer as soon as the life boats were discovered? Dummy.

3. Why did the praetorian guard fight kylo and Rey? At least acknowledge your new supreme leader after he offs 3-4 of you

4. Fuck that Asian girl entirely, that was garbage tripe of the highest order.

5. Finn sure did get back to the last base with unconscious fat Asian girl real fast. I feel like he should have crossed paths with almost-Luke on his way back.

6. I finally get that "extra wide kylo" meme. Holy crap he has a weird torso

I was entertained but that movie is not very good. Upon a repeat viewing I think I would actually dislike it.
Slot it ahead of 3, 2, and1 but behind all the others.
