Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Curious to get people's thoughts on it. I have mixed feelings about it as there are parts I thought were great but have issues with certain scenes and story lines.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I was disappointed that million dollar script writers had to invent setting-breaking technology just to give Finn something to do.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I swore I was done with Star Wars after the garbage fire of the prequels, but I let myself get dragged back in. I thought TFA and Rogue One were mediocre, and TLJ was terrible. I haven't seen Solo and probably won't. Enough is enough. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png

Yeah. I feel you.
I actually enjoyed Rogue 1 but the Saga episodes are a sub-par.
Disney never should have been given the Star Wars Franchise. What a Joke!

It was dead at Empire. 

Switch back.

Solo is not good.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I enjoyed 'Rogue 1,' as it was the first truly serious SW film I seen, though the first one, (that is the forth one) was serious also (mostly) before the films turned into a joke more than a story. The next three (the first three) were farces, though good actors, but they kept ruining it by trying to add humour, which does not work well...

The Last Jedi film was horrific, bad story plot, if the rebels keep making a farce out of the Force, they deserve to lose, they near killed each other to the last droid without the Evil Empire to help matters!

Darth at end of Rogue 1 was fantastic...

Last, starting to groan inside at the female heroines, if this keeps happening, my male ego will plummet and start to become very angry. See if they can feel the hate from the far side of the cosmos with that one?

May the Force be with the Evil Empire...!

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I strongly disliked The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi (maybe even the horrific prequels were better?!?) but thought Rogue One and Solo were good enough for my rental dollars. They had flaws to be sure and certainly aren't in the same league as Star Wars or Empire (should go without saying), but ultimately were perfectly fine, rentable one-offs in the same universe, in my opinion.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I actually enjoyed Solo, as I viewed it knowing most of Han's canon had been fleshed out, and the movie was simply bringing it to life. 
I saw TLJ again when it was released on Netflix. While I no longer have the passionate hate for it I once did, I still don't like it one bit, especially the Mary Poppins scene.

Wow. I thought I was the only one who referenced that scene as a Mary Poppins moment?

Now I'm tempted to watch just to guess which scene is the Mary Poppins scene!

It won't be difficult; it's a "laugh out loud" moment if I ever saw one.

However, much like Jar-Jar and the prequels, the "Mary Poppins scene" is the least of what's wrong with TLJ. The overall problems with writing, direction, and pacing are more annoying than any other aspect.

+1.
I should also give TLJ props in one regard, as it's a visually compelling movie (most of the time). The fight scene in Snoke's chamber, the scenes on the salt planet, and the scene where dude fights Phasma are all glorious to the eye.

Personally; much like "Empire Strikes Back!" I cannot comprehend why small fighters planes fly directly at the walkers' guns at the front, of cert construction; instead of flying wide and attacking from side and back. Shouting at the Screen, that they suicidal morons, just annoys me...

That's a good point, but it really sounds like you watched "Brave Little Tailor" way too many times when you were a kid. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Can't remember which movie it was, but how about when that one ship jammed on the brakes and did a 180? I thought I was watching Dukes of Hazzard all over again! Yee-haw!

That made me lol! 

Brave Little Tailor is the Disney cartoon where Mickey plays the tailor and defeats the giant by sewing him up to the point of where he falls.
