Star Wars Episode 9 currently the 3rd lowest reviewed movie in the series by critics

Forums - Movies Discussion - Star Wars Episode 9 currently the 3rd lowest reviewed movie in the series by critics

I thought The Force Awakens was boring and bad and The Last Jedi was just awful. Maybe this asynchronous enjoyment will continue with Rise of Skywalker and I will not have wasted my trip to the cinema--unless it really is that bad that finally people like me can be united with the critics. Trainwreck or pleasant surprise, I imagine it will be one of those extremes and nothing in between.

Eh, some those scored too high.

My expectations are low given 7 and 8.

I got tricked into watching Rogue one, that movie was bad enough. Can't see myself ever watching this.



If critics are not liking this one, that's very encouraging. It means that the film refuses to drink the kool-aid of social justice and actually tries to get back to what the franchise has originally been about and what made it the giant that it once was.
However, as many of you have already stated, I fear it's just too late to correct the ship at this point. Too much damage has been done. Not going to see this in a theater, but I will catch up on it on a streaming service later. Just for the sake of completion.



I watched every Star wars movie in cinema that I could until this movie, the newer trilogy was just a waste of money and somehow much much worse than Episode 1-3. I probably won't watch this one for years.

How'd you guys feel at this scene?

Well, Finn was going to get killed and she did in fact save him, even if the dialogue afterwards is not the best. I don't think there's that much more to say about the scene.

Did you find it funny that after Rose spoke of saving the ones they love, the resistance base is blasted by the order's laser?

It was going to be blasted anyway. I didn't really like that particular scene tbh.

That was pretty damn funny. Though that scene does show the wasted potential to do anything interesting in that film. Finn, a character who seemed to mostly care about himself, chooses to sacrifice himself to save the Rebels. Even if it would have only bought them time to escape, it was something. Instead we have subversion for subversion's sake. And then the Order just stands there and allows Finn to spend a half hour dragging her body back to the base. What a threatening villian.

"It was going to be blasted anyway."

>There could have been a chance it was stopped if Finn hit it.

"I didn't really like that particular scene tbh."

>I'm not too fond of the scene either.

Non-threatening villains is certainly a part of the problem in Disney's trilogy. There's little tension when the villains are not too threatening.
