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?!

 

Tags man....spoiler tags lol.

For the weak and weary!

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

Please enlighten me.



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.

It's better than Episode VII and it's creative. It doesn't rip off ESB either lmao.


Oh and if you need to know if it defies the laws of physics or goes full blown stupid at a few parts. It does.

Leia is blown up into space and her body begins to freeze. She then uses the force to "Superman" herself through space back into the ship.

Though the whole light speed stuff was done very cool in this movie. Different from the other Star Wars films but it's very much core to the main plot of the film. It's kind of an escape film.

Another odd scene is on Crait where Luke Skywalker walks alone into the middle of the battle field as everyone evacuates and Kylo Ren orders all weapons and the full might of the first order to be turned onto Luke Skywalker. Every AT-M6 unloads on Luke. Huge explosions going for a good 30 seconds in one spot like an episode of Dragon Ball Z. Absolute non-stop sheer fire power all in one location. After the explosions are done Luke Skywalker stands there unscathed and undamaged. Like after everyone unloads on Perfect Cell and shits their pants after they think he's gotta be dead. Kylo is pissed and goes to fight Luke 1 on 1 and gets played like a joke. Kylo swings at Luke and Luke does a backwards Matrix dodge like Neo does in the first film with all the bullets flying at him. Kylo then slices Luke and half and turns around and Luke isn't even cut in half. Then Kylo is like "WHAT THE FUCK?!" and impales Luke and the saber goes through Luke but it doesn't hurt him. When he removes the saber there are no wounds or burn marks. There's obviously much more to that, but I'm not going to spoil the details :P

To begin, the First Order is the succesor of the Empire. And you know the Empire is speciest (favoring humans over all kind of aliens). The First Order is led by a cripple (gonna guess Snoke is human, but he could just as well not be). One of the higher ups is a woman and probably a whole ton of their stormtroopers have all kind of skin colors. There is no racial divide between humans in Star Wars at all. Couple that with the fact Finn and Rose could mask themselves in the First Order officer uniform without anyone batting an eyelid and there you have it.

If the aliens-are-all-on-the-rebel-teal bothers you, then stop watching Star Wars. This was exactly the case in the Trilogy as well, so it's not a point to make here.

And Yoda's force ghost can do as he damm well please, remember that the old EU is irrelevant for this continuity. I for one was happy he was there and that he was puppeteered.

It is the worst Star Wars film ever made. By a long margin. It's too long for what it tries to tell, it's slow, it feels like you're watching the same segment of the movie over and over... because everything that happens is incredibly similar to something that already happened like 15 minutes ago. There'absolutely no character to love or so evil that you love him anyways. Everyone is super bland. And Luke... oh my fucking god... now I understand why Hamill didn't like what they made to the character. It's a joke. He's not baddass in any way... he's just sad. He looks like a drunk old glory...

And the worst of all... Nothing happens. Literally, you can just skip this movie and you won't miss anything.

It's a horrible movie, no matter what you're looking for. You won't find it. Unless you look for a slow, overlenght movie that repeats itself has no memorable characters, with a plot that makes no sense and that it doesn't add anything to the Star Wars Universe.



It's a piece of shit. Well, maybe I'm being too extreme, but it's overall a poor movie, maybe the worst Star Wars ever.

Like I expected, the whole thing is a bait and switch. Disney spits on the plate they've eaten on, as we commonly say around here.



 

 

 

 

 

I thought I was going to like it and have to defend it against people who didn't enjoy it but I was really disappointed with the movie.

There are some select scenes that are interesting but overall the movie is a drag. The Finn plot line seems ripped from a Bond movie, the whole premise of the standoff between the rebels and the First Order makes no sense (our big ship is too slow to catch them and we won't send our hundreds of tie fighters because we can't provide them with cover fire!), I'm not a big fan of the brand new Jedi powers that appear in the movie, Snoke is a weak weak Emperor alternative, they go way too heavy on the cute critters and the comic relief jokes.

I'm begining to think they should have just adapted the Thrawn trilogy and recast Leia, Han and Luke instead.

Signature goes here!

Got burned by TFA so not gonna see this one. Maybe I'll pirate it: Disney has enough money.



What I took away from this movie is that the rebellion is a complete joke, consisting of suicide bombers essentially, and they deserve to lose. Seriously, just let Empire/First Order run the galaxy, cus you guys are incompetent on the highest level.
