    Lucas could video his turd coming from his asshole, call it something like "Return of the Floater" and geeks would be fawning over it.

    I've yet to see anything he's made that's worth a . The entire Star Wars set is basically B rated trash. He couldn't carry Spielberg's jock strap.

    When anything animatronic gets ‘milked’ quite that graphically, and it’s not a cow....you’ve lost me. But my kids liked it ��

    I am not one of those it's cool to hate what everyone likes dude. I'm a big star wars fan.

    But this movie was straight garbage. I'm mean, throughout the movie I kept thinking, what the is the point? This thing is just a mess. They're were some really cool individual moments, but this was NOT a star wars movie. It was a movie with the star wars name on in it.

    Rian Johnson just took a huge on everything OT, especially the mystic of the jedi, and even worse, he justified it by using Yoda to do it. And all because he wanted to do something "different".

    Just bad overall.

    And do even get me started on the Marvel 'insert random joke here' routine syndrome.

    The first "Crank call" one was really, really stupid.

    We’ll never know, but it feels to me like Rian Johnson had a lot of influence on the whole Rey/Kylo/Luke story, while Disney executives forced a Finn subplot to sell toys, forced big name cameos with no purpose just to flex their muscles, and forced a lot of the unnecessary comedy.

    I still liked it a lot, and there some incredible moments, but this one is frustrating because it could have been so much better.

    Followed immediately in the next scene by Luke tossing the saber. Just forced humor. It felt like that was something from an SNL skit.

    It would've been much more powerful if he just dropped it slowly walked away, or just gave it back and walked away.

    I loved it as well. It just seems it was held back because JJ and Rian had two different visions. Like in TFA Snoke was built up to be the mythical power only for Rian to do what he did with him.

    And while I like TFA, it was not better than TLJ.

    Sure and they are buying fox studios which will give them 85% of the markt but you also got amazon and netflix pushing loads of stuff and eventually Will destroy them in the streaming business. And the movie theatre scheme will eventually die off like shopoing malls

    I think hamming it up for comedy missed the mark, but Luke tossing the lightsaber works better because it emphasizes just how he wants nothing to do with it, and doesnít even want that thing in his sight. If anything, maybe have him turn around and hurl it into the ocean. It would get a laugh and make the point even better.

    That woulda been funnier....I still laughed though, and so did my daughter, so if a movie can make a 38 year old and a 5 year old laugh, then I’m fine with it./

    That's too easy.

    Im not against taking things in a different direction. But you can do that without completely ting on the lore like RJ did.

    How did he on the lore?

    And either way, there's no way Rian Johnson on the lore any harder than George Lucas already did -

    Yes, I agree George did. I hate the prequels.

    George messed up because it became all about the effects. He lost sight the of the characters in the story. He was too much of a kid in a toy store.

    Rian, just messed everything period. It's a jumbled mess and change for the sake of change. Ill try to explain more later.

    1) Why did they have Luke be a "projection" of himself? They ended up killing him anyway two seconds after revealing it wasnt really him so what was the point of that? Simply to add a twist?

    2) Obi Wan (Ewan McGregor) should have visited Luke instead of Yoda. He has more experience in dealing with student who turn to the dark side. That would have removed need for cartoon yoda as well.

    3) Fynn and Asian chick are capable of escaping capital ship and hyper-spacing away (and then coming back). Why doesnt everyone the ship simply do that? Get into the transport ships and hyperspace to twenty different locations?

    5) From a timeline perspective, the film is suppose to pick up immediate where last one ended. The Republic, then, has basically no fleet. No Army. No defenses etc? Where did Snoke come from? Where did the first order come from? We could have used a little more exposition and a little less dumb subplots of mutiny.

    6) Why use children as slaves to sweep stuff? Isnt that what droids are for? That entire casino subplot was terrible. Didnt look like Star Wars. Looked more like "Hunger games". As did Laura Dern's ridiculous hair.

    7) Leiah Poppins is a lowpoint for the franchise. Good luck explaining how she's dead in the next film yet is simply indestructible in space.

    Now for some good stuff

    1) Adam Driver can freaking act. They were calling him "better Anakin" in a video series after TFA and it really shows how good the prequels could have been with better script.

    2) I actually kind of like Rey's parents are nobodies but it adds a question as to why the cut away from the bar scene in TFA when that orange chick asked Han Solo "So who's the girl?"

    3) I'd say all the actors in the film minus Laura Dern were really good. The plot was just bad. It reminded me of Jurrasic World and that "independence day" sequel in that had a plot that went back and forth from "bad" to "absurd".

    One of the first things Luke says is that it would be stupid to expect him to leave the island and take on the entire First Order by himself. The whole point was for him to distract Kylo Ren from chasing down and snuffing out what's left of the Resistance. Which is hard to do when you're dead after 1000 shots from AT-ATs.

    A lot of what he did was very consistent with Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and all the newer stuff.

    Luke was Yoda's student, not Obi Wan's.

    Luke deserved better than projection. It would've been epic, and believable, for Luke Skywalker and only Luke Skywalker, the most famous and legendary jedi of all time, who has already defeated the first empire and Vader, and spent years at the original jedi temple, to be able to withstand that barrage, and walk out without harm. Then, give himself up to Kylo like Obi-Wan to come full circle with his story. It cheapend the end for me when it turned out to be a projection. I just think he deserved better than that.

    It's not something he would be able to do over and over and be indestructible, but just one time someone all his strength to withstand that heavy artillery onslaught.

    Just how exactly was Luke going to leave the Island? He ed with Kylo's head in two ways. One, looking as young as he did the night he tried to kill him. And then using Anakin's lightsaber that was destroyed. The point was made very well. He could never get rid of him and he was only fighting himself.
