I love The Last Jedi. I love its tone. I love its message. I love the characters. I really like the ending. Can't wait for the exciting conclusion in Episode IX. I do believe some people's hang ups with the film are political, and I agree it is a bit heavy handed in that department...but crazy times call for crazy measures.

The Last Jedi doesn't have a message. One moment it's about making a sacrifice to defeat the enemy, the other it's about not making sacrifices because that's not how you win a war. One moment it's about learning to let go of the past, the other it's about fanservice from 35-year-old movies. One moment it's about breaking the code and saving the animals, the other it's about following orders strictly. None of its plot points make even the slightest sense, every character is either completely devoid of their known personality, or has it stripped away in the most unrewarding way possible.

The movie actively shits on everything Star Wars was pre-Disney and also post-Disney, but more than that, it actively shits on the audience by constantly concluding plot points, major or minor, new or lingering from previous films, in the most unsatisfying way possible. And people like it because it was "bold", hell yeah, that crap I took an hour ago was also bold yet I'm not here selling it as art.

Yeah. And the fight choreography suuuucked. :) Have you ever watched Mauler's critiques on youtube?

I haven't, no. Although I'd be lying if I said I never watched a video about The Last Jedi, I do normally prefer to just stay away from stuff I dislike. At this point in time I'm okay with the fact that Disney ruined Star Wars, so I don't really mind anymore.

What I'm still not okay with, and I'm not sure I'll ever be, is them ruining Guardians of the Galaxy.



The Wolf of Wall Street. My favorite movie.
The Raid 1 and 2. Best action movies ever.
KickAss 1 and 2.

The Human Centipede 1, 2, and 3. You got to see why people talk about these movies.

The Cabin in the Woods. Don't be fooled by the title.

Sicario 1 and 2. Are you a Hideo Kojima fan?

Bandersnatch was a waste of time. I love Black Mirror and all seasons are great (go watch it if you haven't, every episode is like a short movie), yet this experiment at an interactive movie is just tedious. The most exciting choice popping up was exit to credits. Groundhog day gone wrong.
