So just like Luke during the 6 months/year between TESB and ROTJ she can make herself a strong Jedi.




There was another thing a lot of people seem to have missed but I noticed it immediately in the movie. At the end, where that kid is standing there on the casino planet, and he's got that rebellion ring on, when he walks out to sweep up, he uses the force to pull the broom to him..it's very quick but noticeable if you're paying attention, he sticks his hand out and the broom moves into his hand from like a foot away..very cool...

I don't see how anyone missed that.  I felt like he clearly was meant to be "The Last Jedi".

Mark Hamill has ripped the portrayal of Luke in "The Last Jedi".

Theory is the kid is the hero in Johnson's  trilogy.

I may be wrong, but isn't there a shot of Rey carrying a bundle to the Falcon.  For some reason when I saw the books, I thought, "Oh that's what she was carrying."  Maybe I'm making that up.  I drink a lot, but I seem to remember it.

Saw it last night finally. That leia scene took me out of the moment so badly it took a bit to get back together.
so many rebels bought it in this one I was wondering if the new order was being patterned after the NWO takeover of WCW. Like barely any good guys left. Lol...
It was decent enough overall I thought.

If we get a Resistance Black and Resistance Red and a Latino Resistance in Ep 9, I'm out.

:)

I liked it. I agree, felt they missed a great way to send Leia off. Most of the bitching I've seen revolves about the portrayal of Luke. Palpatine purged most information about Jedi. I just don't get how people expected him to conduct himself like some supreme badass Jedi Master considering he did not grow up in the order. He got a few hours of training from Obiwan and a few days with Yoda. He was prone to sullen and whiny behavior in the OT. I could see how he'd run off. feeling like an abject failure. He was a farm kid thrust in to a role of galactic importance. Less than he have caved in less circumstances.

The force bond between Kylo and Rey was lifted from the old EU so it didn't bother me. Snoke pretty much amounted to nothing, and I am sure they'll fill in his backstory via novels and comics.

One major gripe I have is the fact they did a shit job explaining exactly what the First Order is in the films. Most film goers aren't going to read the books which is where they explain where it comes from.

All in all, I liked it. I am curious to see where they go from here.

I assume the First Order were defeated imperial military and politicians that did not want to fade away and instead kept weaponry and equipment and then asserted themselves to take power where they could, steadily overcoming a smaller and less equipped rebellion turned republic government and military. Is it supposed to be anything different? I do wish Snoke had been fleshed out a bit. Who was he? Where did he come from? How did he gain power? You could do that well enough in the opening crawl or a minute or two of dialogue between Luke and Rey.

I had no issue with Luke going hermit. It seems like it was meant to echo Obi Wan in some ways although not entirely since Obi Wan went to Tatooine to watch over Luke from afar. He tried to restore the Jedi, and like Obi Wan with Anakin it went badly off course, and he then withdrew due to defeat and guilt. It seems simple enough. One of the problems is so many people have their own version of the story in their minds and can't get their heads around the fact that someone else might tell it very differently. Star Wars is far from the only movie or TV series in which this is the case and a disaffected fan base occurs as a result.

Can we assume Chewbacca's a vegetarian, now?

My biggest "disappointment" was probably Finn. He was fine as a "Star Wars Action Figure" in this movie. Yet I feel like his character needs something more than: "Stromtrooper who defects when he sees blood". After seeing TFA, I thought we'd be getting more on his backstory in this Episode.

The Canto Bight segments reminded me of something from the Clone Wars cartoons. It had the modern animated movie staple of "running through a crowded place in out-of-control fashion while everyone shouts: Whoooooa"

The fanboy in me wanted the gambler or "codebreaker" to be Lando. Seemed like a casino planet would've been the perfect outlet to bring him back into the fold.


And the Rebellion lives on...as Stevie the stable hand (and his magic decoder ring) will no longer pick up horse shit! Stick it to Da' Man! Fight the Power!
