I heard they got an acting coach just for him. A Solo who cannot act, that's gonna be a riot.

One of the reasons why I found TFA enjoyable despite the story being a clear remake, is that at least the film introduced a shroud of mystery that left many speculating about the future direction of the story. What was Rey's lightsaber vision all about? Who are Rey's parents? Who's Snoke? How did the First Order come into power?

TLJ simply discarded these things. Who’s Snoke? Doesn’t matter. Who are Rey’s parents? Nobody. Or how did Maz get Luke’s lightsaber? Why did R2D2 magically reawaken? Why did Luke hide a map inside R2 if he didn't want to be found? Who knows and who cares. The main idea of TLJ seems to be “let the past die”, which numerous characters state throughout the entire movie. Problem is, each time the film presents an opportunity to do so, it undercuts itself and reverts right back to status quo of Episode IV.

JJ Abrams is talented at creating mystery. He did it in "Lost" to great effect, but he doesn't actually have answers to what he is doing. That's why the series started out with high fan reviews and by the last season it had sputtered out. It was too late though because it already made lots of money and a bunch of airtime.

He was specifically hired for the purpose of re-energizing the franchise by throwing mystery into the first movie. You got trolled by a marketing ploy. The new movie is about a bunch of evil profit-driven arms dealers getting rich to build up the First Order fleet... written and produced by a mega-corporation that was refered to by George Lucas as "slavers".

And now you have slightly less money. GG well-played.

It basically ends up in more or less the same place it began. Sure, Luke and Snoke are gone, but they had little screen time and significance in the start of the sequel trilogy (TFA) to begin with. Rey is still on the light side, Ben/Kylo Ren is still conflicted and on the dark side, Rey & Finn’s relationship didn’t move an inch, we still don’t know anything about who Snoke was, The First Order still has the upper hand like in the beginning of TFA...

Before I watched the movie I had thought that we would have sacred sentence "I am your father" of Luke to Rey...

Frankly, at the very beginning of the movie, I had a bad feeling when the commander of the Resistance fleet flew up to the dreadnaught to tell a 'your mother' joke. I had a quesy feeling in my stomach that the next 2 and half hours would be **** and I was right.

If you enjoyed the movie you're luckier than me. But on the bright side I've gotten like 10x more enjoyment watching reactions on YouTube.

So teh interwebz are now raging on, even going as far as labeling it the worst Star Wars film?


Meesa so happy.


But to be fair, watching anything from hollywood lately seems a lot like reading a book published by an authorised author from the Soviet Union. any book. No matter how good or bad it might be, there's the ideological bullcrap(maybe not intentional by the author, but mandatory in the book's case), whether you like it or not.


Anyways, onto something better, like the Star Wars: Legacy comics.

Beginning the year with a box office story that should surprise nobody, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has owned Christmas and New Year in cinemas, and has blasted through the $1 billion barrier after only three weeks on release!

Watched it last night. That galaxy-wide, irl jedi mind trick was the best part about it. Passable if nothing more. Better than the other two at the very least.

seems that if this force connection remains in SWIX they both will stay on opposite sites of galaxy and only their light sabres will fight somewhere in space...

I liked it.

While it wasn't great by any means, it was solid entry to the series, and much more enjoyable than Episode 7.
