Yeah it definitely feels like a slap on the face for ackbar fans (or, again, original trilogy fans) by having him offed basically off screen then having this lady who nobody has ever seen before be the next in line.  I actually didnt mind her, her character, or the decision to keep the transport mission secret. 

Poe, imo, is the dumbest most forced character I've seen in star wars since jar jar.  Yes he's that bad, for me.  Intolerable!  Then the finn/poe bromance.....is anyone buying it?  I feel like poe needs a dose of ritalin whenever theyre together.

I can agree that Poe is pretty dumb. I have also read that he was supposed to die in Force Awakens but they changed it so he wouldn't. I'm beginning to think that was a bad choice.

I may be reading too much into it but i just realized, going back to my Ren is the real master theory, Rey and Ren still saw each other despite the distance without Snoke being alive.  Just sayin

Has anyone had a second viewing yet? I plan to in the very near future. The Leia scene where she uses the force was dumb, the side mission was kinda dumb, the Maz FaceTime call was dumb, and the purpose of Snoke not amounting to much dumb, but overall I think I liked this movie. Leia surviving the whole movie will make it a challenge to write her out of Episode 9 I would imagine. I am glad that the movie wasn't based on another death star and hope Ep 9 stays away from that plot as well.

I'm interested in everyone's views on Luke.  Mark Hamill has been on record in saying he liked the idea of an "evil" Luke after the original trilogy.  I thought it sounded horrible at the time, but after TLJ I'm kinda wondering how it would have turned out.  I actually think it would have been a far more coherent story if they had gone that route, having Luke be driven to madness and maybe the "good" part of him was what drove him to self-exile.

I mapped out an "evil Luke" story line in like 20 minutes this weekend that's better than what they gave us in Last Jedi.  Surprisingly, there were zero casino scenes.

It was clearly the way to go.  There was a lot of drama to be mined from that idea.

I finally watched this. It was pretty decent.

Jumanji 2 was better.

I'm old and don't like new apps.  Can't I just snobbishly judge your taste in movies here?

It's hard not to appreciate Norm's old man curmudgeonly nature.

Reading through this thread, my main observation is that Star Wars nerds are whiny. The movie was completely fine. It's a fucking Star Wars movie, but a (insert name of some Oscar winner that nobody ever saw).

It wasn't the best movie ever, it probably wasn't the best movie I saw last week. But it was solid.

As someone who doesn't know what they're talking about, i totally get why you would like the Last Jedi.









I channeled my inner Norm on that one.




And Henry i love talking movies
