I feel some overstate the horrible nature of TLJ and I especially have a distaste for those who inject their social politic bs into it (whether it comes from either "side"). I feel like with the internet especially, people just drive eachother into a frenzy and things snowball to ridiculous levels.

I wish we can just call it an incredibly dumb and boring movie and leave it at that, move on a hope J.J. will be able to salvage something from the mess left to him with Episode IX.

But I suppose some people take it personally when they see their one of their cherished franchises being left in ruin (at least this is how I see it). To me it's a bit childish and pointless, but so is it childish and pointless to those who seem to take it personal that OTHERS hate this movie, or worse - attack and negatively label others for doing so. Like, what do you care? They have a right to vent about it, given the circumstances, especially those who spent their money to go see it. What's the old saying, "the customer is always right"?

Personally, I still think Episode I is the worst Star Wars film ever made, though the Last Jedi is a close second :P (it certainly looks much nicer visually w/some cool effects, and I prefer the darker tinge to the goofy kiddie themes, Kylo and even Luke at least had hints of depth at times, but in the end it was just very poorly executed).

I am still planning on seeing Episode IX if only because J.J. is back to directing it and it's looking like Palpatine and Luke will be making returns (at least in some form), though TLJ did indeed kill 80% of my hype and sense of wonder I once felt towards this series.

I will probably skip the first week, at least, just as my form of...I dunno, anger over the last one. I know it does nothing in the overall picture, but I guess it'll mean something to me.

At first I was excited about Palpatine coming back, but now, the more I think about it, the more I feel like its just taking away from the original trilogy and what Luke and Vader accomplished by killing him. It almost feels like they are trying to completely take any and all accomplishments and heroics from Luke. And yes, I am overly sensitive about Luke, and I readily acknowledge that. 

Now I'm sure they'll just have Rey kill him, for good this time, because Luke wasn't good enough to do it, but Rey, in her all powerfulness, will do it with ease. 

Damn, I hate being this bitter.

You see JJ.Abrams working on a movie as something positive?

Bruh... He made Alias and Lost... Him being on a movie is as bad a sign as the LJN logo.



I LOVE ICELAND!

I think I will watch it online.

At first I was excited when I heard Luke and Palpatine's voice but then I remembered that that is exactly how they lured me in to the last two movies. So I feel if I fall for it a third time and then get dissapointed again, then I won't have anyone to blame but myself. If I watch it online at least I will have the consolation of not giving them my money.



/ Yeah I'll probably just wait an extra year or two when it inevitably hits Netflix/on demand on my cable service. Unless a group of friends are like dying to see it in the theater, which my friends and I don't typically do much these days. Now it's usually hanging out at bars if anything ha

I think part of my faith in Disney to get IX right is their achievements with other universes, like Toy Story from Pixar, but especially Marvel.

In a few hours I am off to see Avengers: Endgame. According to reviewers it is incredible, nearly as good as The Last Jedi.
