Forums - Movies Discussion - You going to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi this weekend? How was it? 220 million first weekend domestic, more than entire Justice League run

I have seen it yesterday on premiere day. Unfortunately I haven’t pre-ordered tickets earlier so all imax 3d tickets were sold out for 4 days in advance and I went to 2D instead. As a fan of original trilogy in my opinion the movie is pretty bad and I’m dissapointed by it. Definitely don’t like where this franchise is going. Though I didn’t like force awakens as well. But force awakens still was a lot better than last jedi.

It was a mixed bag for me. Some scenes were inspired while others were impotent. The plot and pacing were kinda all over the place, Snoke was underdeveloped, but production values at least were reliably solid and in general it ended better than it started. I think JJ can do a better job with E9 if he tells a more original story this time around.



Far better then Episode 7.
For me personally it was my 2nd favourite Star Wars movie, the plot was great. The character relationships and development were fantastic and you genuinely had a feeling of being unsafe during the film. Usually with films like yothis you think nothing can touch the main characters... not in this film.

I only had 2 issues with the movie tbh, I can’t say what they are for spoilers but I wil just say ‘peter pan’ and ‘you know who’ for people who have seen it

This, exactly.



Saw it already. I hated it. The Last Jedi is really shite sans a few scenes. Star Wars is going in a very wrong direction. Next year, when the movie is out of theatre, I will post a full review/rant here.

I just saw it and gosh. I don't know what to say. I liked it more than The Force Awakens but damn... They shit the bed with this one. I can't really say much about what was wrong without spoiling it, but it single handedly betrays a lot of what Star Wars is all about. Furthermore it's not much of a sequel to TFA or even really fits with the rest of the saga. People are right about Snoke being underdeveloped. In fact his character holds no meaning to this trilogy at all. He's more or less a plot device to drive Kylo Ren. Speaking of plot... The Last Jedi has a plot but offers little in terms of story and narrative. It's very inconsistent and drops a lot of plot points. For example the Knights of Ren have been dropped entirely from the series.

Something I find interesting is that there was a plot script that was released last year for the film. A number of things were correct. The title being "The Last Jedi", a new character named "Captain Canady", a Casino planet, and major epic space battles along with Poe being a star of them. That being said the plot was changed drastically for being too ambitious, too big in terms of scope and vision, and potentially too much risk in terms of plot twists. It's a lot more "Rain Johnson" than what we got. The script is much more consistent with TFA, includes the Knights of Ren which played a major role, and Snoke was a huge character and consistent with the books. The narrative over all was amazing and one of the best in the series. I really wished I knew what went wrong with this films production. It's clear from watching it that Disney really backed down on their grand vision for this trilogy. I still got a copy of the script if anyone really wants it.


If anyone has any questions, I'll answer them with spoiler tags.



Spoilers ahead!!! It was a travesty. Luke Skywalker has turned into a loser. Rian Johnson doesn't understand Luke at all. Yoda shouldn't be using the force as a force ghost, if so then he should be fighting alongside the Resistance. Rey is like the most poweful Jedi without any real training. Snoke was a decent copy of the Emperor but they killed him 1 film too soon. The asian girl didn't need to be in this film, her character added nothing.

There is a racist/sexist agenda against white men in this film, aside from Luke they had no speaking parts on the Resistant side but all of The First Order were white men. So white men are viewed as evil and the women and minorities need to band together to take them out. This is completely disgusting. Why is Disney promoting this bigotry against white men?!



Sales prediction, PS4: 122 Million, Xbox one: 50 million, Switch: 105 million. 

I expect it to do worse than Episode 7 just because episode 7 sucked. I'm sure many won't even bother.

Actually, i wouldn't even bother with episode 8 if i wasn't being literally dragged to watch it.

Hopefully it's better and doesn't murder the laws of physics and common sense again. Magically bending energy beams... i tell you! Theres a fine line between fantasy and outright stupid.



Saw it two days ago. I thought it was a great movie, but brace yourself, this is really unlike any Star Wars movie you ever saw and it takes a lot of risks.

And ignore the usual whining.

You have a terribly poor interpretation of this movie... Seriously.
