I thought it was awesome. I understand the hate to some degree, but I think it has more to do with all the time and energy people spent theorizing on what was going to happen and not because it was a bad movie. I think that some of the stuff in it was bad and there were slow parts, but overall I think it was damn good.December 15, 2017 at 9:44 pm #4921

disappointment is the main feeling. It felt like that it was a half story that was fleshed out with children friendly moments and a clear lack of depth and story telling.
Snoke- what was the purpose of him at all if that’s all you are going to use him for? He was made out to be this malevolent ancient entity who was all powerful and he cant see when his so called apprentice is in front of him doing a hokey turny trick.
Mary Poppins in space- nuff said about that
Luke- we have been waiting 30 years and a whole movie to see him and you might as well have put in Frank Gallagher from Shameless ashe is only a bitter, lonely and scared man. As for the David Blane trickery, well…
Po, Hux and Phasma again might as well not have been put in the film for the use was irrelivant
casino, porgs etc- dont start me on those
Kylo Ren is the only character in this film who was given some character progression and comes out of this well.
Rey is still in the position where she has had no training, comes from noone and no where and is now the face of the Rebellion and Jedi? Doesnt work for me, sorry
I was so looking forward to seeing this as I saw Episode 4 back in 1977 when I was 5 but the change of direction to a Disney/Marvel wise ass, kiddy movie really grated with me.
JJ Abrams now has a virtually impossible task for Episode 9 as this divisive film will split the community and now needs a huge comeback to round of this story arcDecember 16, 2017 at 9:32 pm #4933

I loved it so much!!! The film was a little different in a good way in terms of what previous Star Wars films had. I really enjoyed the Force Bond between Rey and Kylo Ren. The connection between Rey and Ren was such a delight to see on screen, as was her multiple interactions with Luke. I found the Rey/Luke parts fantastic, engaging, fun and sad at moments. When Yoda burnt the tree on Ahch-To that housed the Jedi text, I thought they were truly gone until I noticed they were aboard the Millenium Falcon. The combat between Rey, Ren and Snoke was brilliant, and that Kylo Ren truly turned against Snoke by killing him while use the Force to drive Luke’s Lightsaber sideways through the middle of him.
The time that Luke and Leia first met in the film was powerful and emotional. I kind of figured something was amiss as Luke looked so much younger than he was at the events of the film, and also the fact that he had his destroyed Lightsaber by his side as he faced Kylo Ren. There’s so much more that I would love to write about The Last Jedi, which I will do so later.December 18, 2017 at 12:46 am #4948

Personally, I was really disappointed. I was very excited going into TLJ, and I was ready to see Luke use some awesome force powers and Snoke making Palpatine look like just a pawn.
I’d say the first half of the movie is really solid, but it all goes downhill after Snoke’s “death.” I feel like this new Star Wars trilogy is just Disney slowly killing off all of the Original Trilogy characters. Luke’s “death” was pretty cheesy as well.
The main disappointment for me was Snoke. It seems pointless to have such a powerful character who has been around for a very long time killed off so easily.
Lastly, with all the deaths that took place during TLJ, I don’t really know how I’m supposed to feel excited for Star Wars 9.December 18, 2017 at 3:35 am #4949

I’m not too sure how I felt about the movie. Overall I really enjoyed it and I thought that the story progression of Kylo Ren was great but there were a lot of elements of the movie that left me a little dumbfounded. Firstly, I would like to point out that this was supposed to be a Star Wars movie, NOT a Marvel movie. I think they tried to make the movie too funny at points which is what also turned me away from Thor: Ragnarok. I thought both movies were really trying to push the funny aspect which I really disliked because the tone of this movie was supposed to be dark. And then my next biggest issue was the whole Leia didn’t die thing. One she got the bridge of the ship blown up and then two she was released into the vacuum of space and somehow managed to survive. Yes I understand that Star Wars is made up and that it has its own rules about space but still, Carrie Fischer passed away and I think they should have let that be her last big screen scene. But anyway I digress. The parts of the movie I did really like were Luke’s new power and Kylo Ren killing Snoke. Those parts made the movie reedemable to me. I think I need to watch it another time to get a complete opinion on the movie but overall I thought it was good and that it really progressed the story in the right direction.December 19, 2017 at 1:14 am #5089

I will leave my opinion after at least another viewing as I know that I can now spend time diving into it instead of being taken by surprise by everything.
I enjoyed it and although it did not feel like 2.5 hrs but there were lengths.
People seem to have forgotten where this series has come from and expect a single movie blockbuster whereas we must take the saga as a whole.December 20, 2017 at 5:14 am #5378

I have super mixed feelings about the movie as a whole. I went in to TLJ absolutely stoked to see it. I had been watching theories for a couple months and I watched the entire saga the week leading up to the premier. So to say the least, I was a little disappointed. Kylo killing Snoke, Rey not accomplishing much as far as character development goes, Luke not even having a real fight. There were so many elements that went untouched and I can’t help but feel a little cheated. I felt like most of the theories I saw before TLJ came out would have made for a much better movie. Disney might be focusing to much on the “one a year” movie format to put in the time and effort required to really tell the story Star Wars fans are expecting. These are all just initial thoughts however, and I am willing to give the movie another shot. Maybe I was too caught up looking at what I thought was wrong to see the good in the movie.December 20, 2017 at 5:50 pm #5386

I didn’t think it was anything special. A great deal of it was filler or situations that we’ve already seen with just different characters. Kylo Ren instills about as much fear as a dead jawa and Rey, “The Instant Jedi…just add water”, is a slap in the face, to all the Sith & Jedi who had to train, practice and hone their skills for years! I’m also getting the impression that you needed to know “stuff” from sources outside of the films to fully understand the film. If that is true then that is total BUNK! I am all for being different, as far as storytelling goes, and I love a film that makes you think, but you have to give something to think ABOUT! Right now, my feelings are that either the film gave NOTHING to think about or went out of its way to hide info, clues or answers. I did like somethings too though. Kylo Ren’s lightsaber. It was so totally WIK! I didn’t see episode VII in the theatre, so I didn’t experience the full effect of its sound and look until now! I like Rey a lot. I just don’t believe she could be as good as she was with using the force in such a short span of time…it’s not believable at all. I loved Chewie, though I wish he did more. I also liked the wee hamster guys that hung out with the Wookie on Luke’s Island. I am going to watch this movie again because it deserves it (I mean IT’S FREAKN’ STAR WARS right!? lol.)December 20, 2017 at 5:53 pm #5387

As some of you I went to the theatre very excited since it would be the first Star Wars saga movie I would see in the big screen (already have seen Rogue One) and because of all the waiting and theorizing time with the plot holes and unanswered questions that TFA left. Although I enjoyed the whole experience there are more things I didn’t like over the ones I liked mainly about the plot line so I’ll tell the biggest likes and dislikes. High ground: the fight scene betwen Rey/Kylo against the pretorian guards; the progression of Finn, who begins the movie with the same doubts he had in TFA but at the end he’s a tottaly convinced rebel; Chewie, who had a little more participation than ep. 7; Yoda and Luke’s interaction. Sand: no one said “I have a bad feeling about this”; the reveal of Rey’s parents, so much hidding and concealment for that?; the new characters, who I found uninteresting (specially DJ); that kid at the end being force-sensitive, wtf! where he came from? if other random kid in the galaxy can use the force so what’s the special about Rey?. Some other things I’m confused about are why they made Rey and Kylo to join each other just to make them away again 10 minutes later, and how the character that more times ‘saved the day’ was a droid, I know they want the kids to love and fond with BB8 but come on! he did more in the movie that Poe, Finn and Rose togheter.
