I would say that as a movie, I throughly enjoyed it. The graphics were phenomenal, there was action, comedy, moments we rooted for the heroes, maybe moments we rooted for the villain but as a Star Wars movie… I have to admit I am a little disappointed.
To me, this movie felt so different from every other Star Wars movie, and despite change being good, I was really looking forward to just being emersed into OUR galaxy again.
What really disappointed me was Luke – here is the man who would not fight Darth Vader because he was his father ( and he didn’t learn this too long before! ), but he tried to pull what he did with Kylo?? It seems unrealistic to me, and it did have me leave the theater rather disappointed. And then the occurrence with Snoke felt rushed and rather mind boggling.
I am looking forward to Episode IX, and I hope that they can get us back on the right track.January 7, 2018 at 4:51 am #5713

I liked the movie when I first saw it. I have seen it heaps of times now, focusing on separate aspects. I love it. I think it is the best SW ever made, I loved TFA as well. I watched TLJ then watched TFA and made a few observations about the Kylo/Rey dynamic. I was never a Reylo ‘shipper’ but with seeing the films back to back, I noticed a few things. It’s a theory, so I might submit it to SW theory page.

My personal view is that I have genuinely mixed feelings about it.
I weighed it up and there were around 10 things I liked about it and 10 things I didn’t.
The things I liked were mainly things not to do with the plot (music, effects & I really liked the silver foxes)
The things I didn’t like were mainly to do with the plot (Luke portrayal mostly but also Reys amazing ability despite the fact she got virtually no training and Snokes premature death)
Over all I have to say it held a lot of disappointments for me but I’m by no means a ‘hater’ or a ‘whiny fanboy’ as some of those who didn’t like it have been labelled.
I’m prepared to think outside of the box and see the fact that if it had been done how I would like to have seen it, all the people who currently dislike it would probably like it & all those who currently like it would dislike it.
It may prove to tie in with how the next films are going to turn out, i.e their theme so I’m prepared to hold final judgement until I’ve seen the next film.

When I saw The Last Jedi in theaters I loved it. Looking back on it an thinking about everything together I liked it less. There are things that are kind of minor that are a big deal if you think about them too hard like turning the Resistance cruiser into a hyperspace missile, but that didn’t really break it for me. For me, it is still watching this all unfold in the area of the timeline that used to contain some of my favorite EU stories that are no longer a part of “official Star Wars”.
Viktor, as far as choosing an alternative movie, I don’t think that concept works very well when you are talking about a franchise such as Star Wars and talking about the middle movie of a trilogy. I personally have liked both Rogue One and Solo better than either of the new movies in the sequel trilogy, but you can’t really have an alternative to this unless you look to the EU story(stories) that should have made it to the big-screen or go back to the drawing board and do something that touches the fans a bit better than what they have done here.
