I barely know anything about it, because I'm a ninja when it comes to avoiding spoilers, but my conclusion when I heard a very brief, spoiler-free opinion/comment from a friend was that The Rise of Skywalker could be compared to a dish of fan service covered in fan service sauce with a splash of fan service all around it and a garnish of fan service at the top, all of that accompanied by a cup of fan service and served on a fan service platter. Sort of.My intuition tells me that you two slightly dislike this movie. =P Maybe they should've called it The Fall of Skywalker instead.
Anyway, I'll watch it because the curiosity (that thing that killed the cat) is strong in me.
Exactly. The game is nothing but mindless fanservice. I think even for the most unambicious popcorn blockbusters we still need some substance, this is a movie with no substance, there is no story to tell. The movie is a parody of itself, that are moments where the villain start a devious laugh and you just laugh with him because you can't take that seriously
