This film is so real. It treats its characters with so much care and sensitivity.
This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
The movie's not perfect, but it sticks the landing of its message. It was engaging - thrilling at times - and I personally thought it was a great time.
SPOILERS I think why so many people were disappointed with this movie is that we're not used to seeing our heroes fail. I wasn't alive when Empire came out, but I can imagine people had a similar feeling back then as well. Our heroes lose! Now its seen as one of the best of the movies, but back then I bet people weren't happy to see Luke and Han lose to the Empire. This film does as lot of that. The resistance is almost toast. They loose all of their ships and most of their personnel... BUT they still have hope. They escape thanks to Luke. I also think people had a problem with what happened to Luke, but I can understand. Its been 30 years. He failed as a teacher. Why does there HAVE to be Jedi? Like Yoda was saying it's just a religion and doesn't work anymore. Luke says it too. The Jedi were at the height of their power and let a Sith lord rise right in front of them. The force still exists... we just don't need Jedi. I also like how Snoke is just Snoke... Why does he have to be secretly someone else. Star Wars is a huge universe... who says someone powerful with the force couldn't have rise from some random place in the last 30 years. Same with Reys parents... Why does she have to be related to anyone. It shows that the force can be strong with anyone from anywhere... They dont have to be Skywalkerd or Kenobis.I also like how Poe became an antagonist in this movie. The hotshot should have listened to his superiors, but he just had to be the hero. Luckily he starts to figure this out by the end. I think my fav part is the Millennium Falcon chase at the end. Brought back lots of memories of Empire and Return of the Jedi. And its Chewie!! The real hero of this movie haha.. So overall on second viewing I liked this movie a lot. I think a lot of fans are just sad that it didn't play to a lot of cliches like the Jedi winning and people having familiar backstories. I thought it was a great departure from what the Force Awakens did and I can't wait to see how they close out this saga
And your movie has no reason whatsoever for existence.. at least hire a pretty babe who flaunts a gorgeous body, cleavage, legs, long hair etc in your film. At least i feel good watching a thin girl in a micro mini skirt and not hate the studio for stealing from me. Otherwise, what is the point?
Honestly, The Last Jedi was not the worst Star Wars movie I've seen. It had a lot of refreshing and different little turns that made it feel more original (some different turns in storyline and different things in characters you wouldn't expect). At the same time, however, it felt pretty shoehorned in and did not feel completely coherent. On top of that, the film was muddled with a few plot holes and a few cringe worthy sequences (green milk fresh from the teet and the notorious "Carrie Poppins" scene.) The film did leave me interested to what could happen in the next film, had decent acting, amazing visual effects and action, an always beautiful score, a thought provoking and meditative ending and it was fairly watchable the first time around. However, at the end of the day it was really a one trick pony, good for one time to watch and then the thrill wears off. Last Jedi is not as bad as the butthurt fans say it is, but it's certainly not great. A mixed bag.
I have nothing to add that hasn't already been said. The story is just wrong. There's nowhere to go from here. Just have to wonder how they could possibly let this happen... RIP Star Wars.
