Great movie. Whole lot better than Force Awakens. Definitely want to watch it again.
After seeing TLJ the first time, I went back and watched TFA - which I loved upon first viewing. There were a lot of parts I didn't like as much as I thought I did. It's still a good movie that served a purpose (reboot) but doesn't hold a candle to the world-changing storylines of TLJ.
I think it is going to take big payoffs in episode IX for people to really appreciate what was done with TLJ.
I thought Force Awakens was good but it was pretty much re-used plot lines from the original trilogy which is fine when you're reintroducing a series and the backlash the previous one got.
but that's why I liked TLJ more. It did its own thing and it was great.
Hopefully we get a decent passage of time when the story of Ep IX begins.
Empire > New Hope > Last Jedi > Return > Rogue One > TFA > the first 3 episodes imo.
Rogue one was underrated to me even though it's not a necessary film.
I saw this thing last night and I’m still confused why there was comedy in it. When I watch a Star Wars movie I’m interested in war and fighting not to laugh.
there's comedy in all of the Star Wars movies. Why do you think C-3PO is there?
So I have a problem a bit with the political message of this movie. I don't have a problem with a liberal message, and I wouldn't have a problem with them railing against the 1% or weapons dealers if that was what the story was about. But the story is about fighting back against the First Order who are basically space *****. Yet the movie focuses on the evil of the Casino Planet and the 1% and the weapons dealers. Those don't seem connected to me. It's like if they did a WWII movie, and then spent a large chunk of the movie talking about how evil the millitary industrial complex is, then went back to fighting *****.
Absolutely in awe.
That end scene gave me chills.
