    Sure it was different but I liked it quite a lot, there were few dead scenes and couple questionable moments, but it introduced few things from extended universe and unlike EP VII was not straight up copypaste of old movies.

    Really liked the movie, especially since I saw Now You See Me first, making this one a real breath of fresh air after that pile of rancid rat cum.

    The only thing that kinda rubbed me the wrong way was the twist with Angier's version of The Transported Man trick; I felt like it was a bit too much of an ass-pull, but still nothing too horrible, especially since it does have certain value of its own.
    Can't say much more in order to avoid spoilers, and trust me, you want to avoid them for this film (it's nothing mind-blowing, but it's still pretty neat and well executed overall - extra kudos to the fact that you can rewatch the whole thing and go 'aaah' over all the little hints that the film left you and realize it actually gave you the chance to figure it all out on your own).

    Sotryboard for the leatest Steven Universe episode? :p

    I agree. The movie definitely had a few questionable moments and unnecessary jokes, but overall it opened a plethora of new possibilities for the universe to grow and develop. It did not just reanimate a dead corpse for nostalgic fans but actually defined a new universe for the audiences of today.

    I saw a lot of criticism that Luke was not what he "used to be," and I am like... he is old now. Have you ever seen people grow old and become grumpy and annoying? Yeah, that's exactly what happened.

    It's also pretty much a SJW movie, and when I was leaving the theater, I was already anticipating the many many adult virgin tears on the Internet because the movie had all these women doing shit and saving the day, like Admiral Holdo ramming her ship into the enemy cruisers, Rose Tico saving stupid Finn, Leia using her force and drifting in space (it was a very WTF moment for me, though), and Rey, of course, fighting Kylo Ren. I thought it was exciting, and all these women were more relatable than all the guys in the movie who just did stupid shit and were being difficult, impulsive, and illogical. Finn and Poe really need to grow up.

    There is an article about this, as well: Why So Many Men Hate the Last Jedi But Can’t Agree on Why.

    Sure, let's brand everyone who doesn't like this movie as misogynist. If you had an actual brain instead of a sponge filled with all the leftist-goatcrap you'd know that most people don't care about women being stars of the movie. The criticism is about the plotholes, out-of-the-blue twists and undelivered promises which were set up my TFA. But you can't comprehend that, coz in your world everything is revolving around some kind of misogynist conspiracy or neo-nazi agenda.

    WTF? There was just one major plothole and that was Rey getting back on Falcon after the fight. As for promises undelivered only Snoke was major letdown as he just died, which felt very odd. Rey's parents are still not resolved that is still yet to be revealed (Kylo's comments can largely be ignored as his intentions was to mentally break her).

    So what are the plotholes that you mean and the promises to be delivered that were left out?

    You can literally go on r/starwars and open one the treads on a front page and read it. For example weaponized hyperspace literally makes deathstar runs pointless, or idiotic mutiny on a spaceship that could be literally avoided with 2 sentences of speech, or curving projectiles in space. Add to that constant disappointment when they do some bullshit like Finn going to sacrifice himself - asian girl saves him - Finn can be successfully removed from the movie, or Luke dying like a bitch, or the whole casino planet.

    Which one was that? For me, the two biggest WTF moments were Leia floating in space after being blasted out from the captain bridge and Rey doing all the jedi stuff after mere days of "training."

    I think that it's pretty much confirmed Rey's parents were nobodies, which in my opinion is the single biggest shift the film made. It basically removed the whole idea of royalty or chosen ones controlling the force and democratized it for everyone. Sure, other movies sort of hinted that everyone has a pitch of force, but the original trilogy was focused on Luke, who was "chosen" and born as some kind of nobility.

    As a lifetime fan of Star Wars, I am satisfied with what they did to keep the franchise up to date and evolving. I see a lot of other fans who are stuck in a mindset that everything has to be exactly how it was 40 years, with no technology being developed, no characters aging, and nothing changing overall, but alas that's not how the world works. I love the idea that the Star Wars universe also evolves and progresses technologically and aesthetically.

    PS: Also, I am expecting many more adult virgin tears when Black Panther comes out.

    >30 years pass since Episode VI
    >whats de fors lol xd
    >what r de jede lel

    This is somehow an improvement.

    >pre-politicizing black panther

    It could actually be decent if they do a good job of the writing instead of making it a rehash of every other marvel movie from the past 5 years

    But i'm sure if it does poorly you ans your ilk will manage to scrounge up some bullshit reason why.

    Pros:

    Cool fight scenes
    The entire Yoda scene and its massive play on words with every sentence
    The animals
    Decent lessons portrayed (such as the Holdo and Poe dynamic)

    Cons:

    The entire fleet chase scene was horrible
    Snoke dead without doing shit
    Asian girl was literally pointless to have (so much so I don't even remember her name)
    With Kylo being the only real villain left, he feels powerless and completely non-threatening so far (lost to untrained Ren)


    Basically the plot as a whole was garbage. Character development barely happened. The whole force scene with Ren going into that dark ass tunnel felt pointless despite being shown as some important thing. Snoke looked threatening while torturing Ren but then immediately died and now all we have is Kylo bitch face who is just an emo kid who not only couldn't beat Ren who just picked up a lightsaber, he got completely embarrassed by Luke (despite that scene being cool from Luke's end).

    There were some great individual moments in the movie, but the story arch itself is incredibly bad.

    Gonna go out on a limb here and say...

    lolnope

    It looks cool, at the very least. But that is pretty the only thing superhero movies do anyway.

    Cons:

    - Bombs controlled via a big red button (ACME?)
    - Waeponized hyperspace travel that could end the whole conflict with just 2 ships (instead of throwing the first medical ship to the carnage why not kamikaze just for the lulz?)
    - A stubbord admiral just for the sake of it that led to a mutiny that led to a useless side mission that led to most of the resistance being blown up (this is major IMO)
    - Snoke bitchslapped Rey while doing his best Hugh Hefner impression and then died like an overfed pidgeon
    - Finn stopped while trying to do something useful for once, just to introduce a flat and pointless character
    - Major Leila WTF scene
    - Yoda, ma man, if you're so strong just do something mkay?
    - "It's salt"

    Pros:

    - Had a burger with my friends
    - Laughed for a couple of hours
    - Fights were cool looking
    - "It's salt" (yes again)

    Edit: yes I'm a vergin sweaty fat neckbeard mysoginist atheist rick & morty fan white male.

    Basic physics applied there, you cannot smash a window with a twig that is 1mm in diameter but with massive branch you can do it easily.

    Leia surviving in space, that has already happened in current cannon, though I agree it was bloody weird scene.

    Yoda has also been explained in cannon as at locations with strong force connections force users and forceghosts can do feats they otherwise would not be able to.

    Insidious The Last Key
    5/10

    already knew it was going to be bad, watched it anyway because of friends
    basically just jumpscares, cringy jokes, and even cringier (don’t even know whether it’s a word or not) casts

    That's not how hyperspace works my dude. Hence the position of "if it works like this why didn't we just yolo hyperspace jump through the death star".
