    Clone wars has been ranked the worst for most people for as long as i can remember.
    I remember when i went to see it with my dad we got to the part where jenga is fighting McGregor on kamaline tea world when the projector broke, i was so happy i almost cried tears of joy, then on the way out my dad said we'd have to go back anothe time to see how it finished.
    We haven't talked in decades...

    The humour in ESB was subtle and unforced. This was pie in the face humour, not suitable for Star Wars. The reviews saying this is as good as ESB baffle me.

    My son's and I just came back from the cinema and we haven't stopped talking about it.
    We can't believe how bad the movie was. This movie makes the prequels look better...slightly.
    We disagreed with Force Awakens, my boys loved it, I hated it, we all loved Rogue One. But the Last Jedi is poorly paced and the humour is forced. The whole slow race of death is just...there is no words to describe it.

    Just weird. Marvel film dressed up as Star Wars.
    In my opinion, utterly awful. For what it’s worth I thoroughly enjoyed The Force Awakens (despite its faults) and Rogue One was close to perfect.
    I think the Canto Bight side-story was a perfect example of how disjointed the entire film was and a huge missed opportunity to explore the universe. It could have not happened and the end result would have been the same. Anyone else feel it was a bit like a PETA advert?

    Luke - this is Mark Hamill's movie and I liked almost everything that Luke does.  It all feels real, and he gives us a Luke that's realistically flawed.   It's such a massive shame that we only get to meet this Luke for such a brief period of time because we would have benefitted from a whole lot more of the salty world-weary legend.
    Leia - I hate that bit.  You know the bit I'm talking about.  That bit felt unnecessary and even a bit tasteless as I bet that wasn't in the movie before Carrie Fisher died, then it got added as a cheap 'gotcha' moment.  I felt like she wasn't given quite enough to do given how she'd been the symbolic bearer of hope from the end of Rogue One right through to the apparent end of the Resistance.  There was a strand of continuity through all the films that could have been pulled on, but wasn't.  She didn't have much to do.
    Chewbacca - and Chewie was there too.  Any fallout over the death of Han?  No.  Never mentioned.  We got a couple of cheap Porg laughs and that was it.
    C-3PO & R2-D2 - C-3PO was C-3PO, R2 had a nice little cameo though.
     
    Rey - flat, but I don't think that's Daisy Ridley's fault.  In TFA Rey goes through the gamut, we see her desperate, we see her feisty, we see her angry, we see her terrified, we see her wonder at the size of the galaxy... but through it all Rey was a driving force.  Rey acted with a strength and confidence of an older soul and the world around her tried to keep up.  I think she gets sold short a bit in this film and spends most of it just waiting around for Luke or Kylo to tell her what to do and what to think.
    Finn - I feel really I feel sorry for John Boyega.  His character already went through a movie running away in order to have his character moment of discovering something worth standing and fighting for.  Then he wakes up at the start of this one back at square one to go through the same character arc in a much less compelling and believable manner.  He was on a pure holding pattern for this movie.
    Poe - I think Poe was pretty strong in this film, his character seemed pretty consistent with what it was in TFA and at least he had an arc in this one.  The biggest problem for Poe is that ultimately he's left chasing himself in circles for most of the film because of his pivotal role in the terrible plot devices of the slow-mo space chase.  Everything he does is pretty good, but it all contributes to the stuff that you wish wasn't in the film.
    BB-8 - **** BB-8.  He can **** off.  I didn't mind him in TFA, I thought he was a bit of comedy relief but good value.  In TLJ he becomes simultaneously a caricature of that slapstick comedy role and a deus ex machina tool who can apparently do anything so long as the cameras aren't on him.  Basically, if BB-8 is onscreen in TLJ he's either trying too hard to make you laugh or providing godlike solutions to serve the plot... and he's welcome in neither role.
    Rose - I like her.  After Mark Hamill she probably has the best parts to play, from star-struck Finn superfan to vengeful sister.  She's an embodiment of the beating heart of the Resistance and a touchstone to the wrongs that it's trying to put right.  It's a small part but a good one.
     
    Kylo Ren - I like almost everything from Kylo Ren in this film, with the exception of one thing - at the point where he does his 'rule the galaxy as father and son' bit it comes so much out of the blue that you're reeling from the whiplash of his about-face.  That needed just a little bit more chance to breathe, to show his conflict turning to resolution and ultimately action, and then to take in what it means to have killed his master.  There was more to say here.
    Snoke - eh.  So that was Snoke.  Turned out he was just a paper-thin piece of exposition for getting Kylo and Rey in the same room for one scene.  Backstory?  None.  Where was he when Palpatine was around?  Who cares.  How did he come to lead the First Order?   No idea.  Who trained him in the Force?  Stop asking these questions.  He was a nothing - a piece of background fluff thrust briefly into the foreground to fake you out and make you think he mattered.
    Hux - did Hux get played too much for laughs this time?  Maybe, it seems like everyone around him knows whats going on better than he does.  He became a spittle-flecked caricature of himself and didn't even think to deploy the garrison.  Poor.
    Phasma - Hi, I'm Captain Phasma, you may have heard of me due to how many toys I've featured in and because I look amazing in this awesome shiny armour.  I got cruelly edited out of large bits of TFA but I was always intended to be more prominent so I'm back now and ready to... oh, I'm dead in a meaningless way.
