    Thought it was a lot better than TLJ. Probably around middle of the pack in all 9.

    I LOLed at the Endgame ripoff- I am all the Sith... and I... am... all the Jedi. I would have said Inevitable/Iron Man for the blooper clip :D

    it had its moments. But I feel like people are grading this on a curve because the last Jedi was so bad and this fixed stuff from it. Too much monkeyness and unexplained stuff for me though.

    Why is palpatines lightning weak af when he’s using it on rey

    Because he’s old now. There’s less lead in that pencil.

    lol. If you saw the film you’d know why I’m asking.

    Here’s the spoiler if you really want to know

    he shoots a ton of lightning into the sky and essentially disables the whole resistance fleet with it. Wasn’t so weak then

    NFL asking Pats for emails and texts in the filming of Bengals coaches backs on the sidelines. This isn't going to end well. What a joke.

    I can explain it.

    The Patriots have abilities to go on a two decade run of success that some would consider....

    Saw it this afternoon

    lessee here... some random and not so random thoughts
    • Narratively, its a swamp
    • Because its a mess, its very exposition heavy
    • It is just too big , needed a heavier hand in the editing room
    • Its too big because they tried to jam way too much crap into it - aka fan service
    • I dislike Poe, Isaac Oscar is a bad actor
    • I liked what they handled Leia ... they did right by Carrie Fisher
    • Soooo, Rey is a Palpatine ... ok ... Liked the last jedi answer to her parentage much better - bratty offspring of some drunks
    • Also ... Driver & Ford? best scene of the movie
    • they added a black woman to the film ... Can't have Finn messing with the white women/Rey
    • its a jar jar abrams film alright .... guy is completely over rated ... he ruined NuTrek ... only one worth watching is the one he didnt do
    overall, it was enjoyable ... but i'm pretty easy going with these movies ...

    I enjoyed the movie from the nostalgia standpoint. I loved the original movies and I am not much of a movie-goer or a sci-fi gal. There was something about the story, the characters and the general camp that I love about them (all my kids love them too and all of them rushed to the theater this weekend to see the latest installment). I didn't like the 2nd trilogy as I thought it was too dark (although the making of Darth Vader is not a light subject, I guess). I have enjoyed the 3rd trilogy, although as someone (here or somewhere) pointed out to me, it is the exact same story as the first trilogy, only with a girl in the Luke Skywalker role. No wonder I liked it!

    Not really the exact same story though. Luke needed to be rescued from certain death by Han Solo twice and then got his ass whipped by Vader and needed to be rescued by Leia. Rey? Not so much. She’s kicked every ass in the galaxy at this point.

    I assume you make this argument because Luke is a Boomer and Rey is a millennial? :)

    Nope. Just that Luke actually developed as a character. Rey didn’t.

    Deus says something with which I agree. I feel a great disturbance in the Force.

    Reminder: We're talking about fiction that is aimed at tweens as much as adults. Anyone who is actually angry about this needs to get a ****ing grip.

    There are a lot of fragile white masculinity types out there who REEEEEE to the heavens the moment a negro or some clam gets cast in a leading role. Heaven forbid only most of the action leads to go white males instead of all of them.

    What sucks is Rey is just an awful character. Leaving aside TROS spoilers she doesn't ever struggle. She's just great at everything right from the start. Luke was fun to root for because he was an underdog. Rey outdoes Kylo pretty much every step of the way without his training. So you have people complaining about Rey because she threatens them because she has the audacity to have the wrong combination of X and Y chromosomes and those mouthbreathers are getting conflated with the rest of us who would be open to rooting for Rey if she failed even slightly on occasion instead of just always overcoming because the plot required it.

    I thought Force Awakens was better. I’d rank the trilogy Force Awakens, then Rise of Skywalker (which is totally a clickbait title, lol, had nothing to do with the movie except perhaps the final line) and then lastly the garbage dump otherwise known as Last Jedi. And to be fair some of the points I am docking off RoS is the convoluted ways it had to fix Last Jedi’s myriad issues.

    But I agree, the new trilogy is not very good. It’s still better than the prequels god forbid. Only Revenge of the Sith was halfway decent.
