    For me it was a mashup of ESB, ROTJ, Hunger Games and GOTG.
    It is just a bad film.

    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.

    I'm with a lot of people in here.
    Was it a horrible, badly made film? No. But did I dislike a lot of the narrative, editing and character choices? **** yes.

    Some moments I really loved, but some I totally hated. And WAY too long. Cut out all of Del Toro's stuff and find a better way to include Finn and Rose. And think up a better reason why the FO can't get the cruiser. Have them limping through a nebula or something so that scanners and targeting doesn't work but also hyperdrive doesn't. Not just empty boring space and some crappy excuse of range.

    Entire subplots that lead nowhere. Worst space battle in the whole saga. Characters that act totally random and that in the end whatever they do matters nothing. Entire rewrite of what the Force is, Force powers taken virtually out of the director's cloaca, literal burning of the lore and tradition of the franchise. Flat undeveloped characters like Snoke or Phasma that evolve nothing and die pointlessly leaving absolutely zero imprint on the story...
    People calling this the best Star Wars movie ever!

    What?
    All of sudden Fighters and Bombers don't work when a bit too far from their motherships?
    Are they cheap RC Car toys or what? Are they tethered to their motherships?
    They went there, destroyed the Cruiser's hangar and all fighters inside, the bridge with Leia and Ackbar inside and went back home for the lunch, then they couldn't go back there and do some more damage?
    Kylos shuttle cannot operate too far of the mothership either?
    Geez, just land on the cruiser and board it! You have the First Order fleet with you!
    I cannot believe you people cannot see this, the entire thing that puts everyone in movement in this movie, as anything else than a PLOT HOLE the size of Sagittarius A*. It's stupid!

    I didn't mind SuperLeia at all. (My son found her ridiculous flying like that, but that's minor stuff)
    I have more problems with why two TIE Fighters could do that to the bridge, and why... you know... didn't they keep doing that for the rest of the movie.

    Agree 100%
    Did not like the comedic direction it took, it all felt forced and unfunny.  I was cringing through the whole opening scene with Poe and Hux.

    Please forgive me for copy/pasting my comment from the No spoiler thread:

     
    [...]How space battles work in Star Wars. You know. There are big, slow things that shoot stuff, and then little, faster things that shoot stuff too, that are a threat to the bigger ones if not taken care of.
    Didn't you see anything wrong with that during the whole second act? Something that totally contradicted the fist act?
    The admiral stunt, that is a whole plot hole. Why didn't anyone else ever used that before if it was so effective? And don't come with "It would be too expensive". They could use just whatever they could get from a scrapyard.
    The new Jedi powers someone else mentions feel like the kind of timey whimey mumbo jumbo The Doctor would just hand wave in a sentence in a bad episode of Doctor Who to justify a rushed script. It totally feels like the writers said "We cannot make this work. Let's just make up some force power that solves this mess for us".
    The whole Canto Bight act was such an unnecessary gratuitous detour that basically led to a dead end. Then whatever they were trying to achieve there just pops in before them. As if the writers got bored with the whole situation going nowhere and decided to cut it short all of sudden. It reminded me to some pen-and-paper roleplay game sessions I had with some friends where, after hours of not achieving anything because of bad dice rolls or not getting the right idea, the narrator would just make our goal appear in front of us out of frustration.
    The Tatooine detour in The Phantom Menace is the closest thing I can compare it to, or Bespin in the Empire Strikes Back. But the consequences of those are so massive in the saga that you cannot really call them detours. Canto Bight felt like it was just something to fill up time and give some characters something to do.
    Do characters really develop? For every step they take forward, they take one or two backwards, ending in a state that was identical or almost indistinguishable from where they started, or even flatter!
    Did you learn anything from Rey other than she being the Mary Sue she was in TFA?
    Did Kylo evolve into something different by the end of the movie other than the same whiny emo he was in TFA?
    Was Poe anything else the whole movie other than a parody of himself, basically an adjective turned into a character?
    Did we learn more of Phasma? Of Snoke? Of Hux? Where they any different by the end of the movie than what they were at the beginning?
    Did we get to know that admiral so that we could care about her?
    Did Finn and the new female character achieve anything at all during the whole movie? Everything happened around them oblivious to their actions. The plot would have been exactly the same if these two characters had been absent during its entirety.
    The same with Leia, Chewie, R2-D2, C3-PO... Do these characters have any interaction with the main characters or the plot other than saying "Hey, we are still here". (And I am not forgetting Luke's change of mind. Something that sincerely could have happened for whatever other reason).
     
    Does this movie make Star Wars grow?
    I don't think so. All the opposite, it burns it to the ground. It takes everything George Lucas created and puts it ceremoniously on a bonfire and lets it go in the most unsatisfying and rushed way, while still manages to "plagiarize" it.
    While TFA was a remake of Star Wars, TLJ is the deconstruction of it. The flesh is ripped off the bones and consumed, leaving a skeleton of what it was, that is covered with a collage of "The Best of Star Wars" to hide how dead is inside.

    Kentucky Fried Ewok reacted to debiler in The Last Jedi - General Discussion [LOTS OF SPOILERS]   
    I went to see it at the midnight premiere in Germany with my wife. And I'm not ashamed to say that I'm so very disappointed I could cry. Well, obviously, I'm not gonna, because it is , after all, just a movie. Let me explain one thing right at the start: this is no unreflected hatred, no "Disney sucks" point of view. Actually, I enjoyed both TFA and Rogue One immensely, for what it's worth. I really hoped this to be a deep, emotional Star Wars story. And parts of it were. The scenes with Luke, Rey, Kylo were almost all magnificent. But there was just so much unnecessary 'humor' , if you can call it that. I'm not talking about wisecracks and little quips. I'm talking full-on slapstick, hit-the-audience-with-a-hammer-right-between-the-eyes dumb jokes and sight gags. The worst one reduced General Hux, whom I loved in TFA, to a complete buffoon. And they kept on and on and on humiliating him whenever he was on screen. Why? This guy is a joke now, not a threat. I also didn't dislike the Porgs initially when I first saw one in the trailer. But there is one scene with Chewie, his dinner, and the Porgs which almost had me leaving the theater, it was that bad and forced. I could go on about the humor, because it feels like there are no five minutes that go by without being interrupted by some stupid, completely unneccessary joke. Any tension and emotional investment I felt were completely done away with because of horrible jackassery. There were many moments when I sat there thinking: "Ok, now it picks up, now you got me. You have me on the hook, just reel me in!" Followed by "Oh look, Hux tripped over his own feet. Now THAT'S comedy!" This made it impossible for me to feel anything for the characters or the situation they were in. There was a complete lack of urgency which brings me to the pacing. The whole sequence about Finn and Rose could have been done away with and the movie would have been better for it. This whole sideplot was the lowest point by far and completely took me out of the movie. And the effort to draw me back in was never strong enough. It all felt so... pointless and unremarkable.
     
    Anyway, I'm sure that as I let the experience sink in a little, I'll be able to rememeber a bit more about it. Because there were good, even great scenes. But right now, I'm utterly heartbroken. Which I never thought could be possible after seeing a Star Wars movie for the first time.

    And why does disney add freaking animals into 50% of the scenes? And dont get me started on these nun-thingies.
    The whole casino world bid was pointless. Heck, everything poe finn and rose did was pointless.
