the last jedi

oh god, this film is so terrible. I can't remember when I
have cringed so much in such a short time. RIP star wars,
following a thirty year death rattle.

I can't begin to describe how cheered I was to see a muppet
version of Yoda back on the screen instead of the
breakdancing CGI abomination from the prequels.

Oh no not this again. There’s been tons of fucking threads
about this.

Happy to know what you feel about it.

I enjoyed myself as everyone knows by now, and gave up with
the one star reviews. The internet is getting really weird.

RIP Star Wars. Is this trolling? Duck Disney but the films
since have been better than the fucking prequels.

Oh Christ why am I doing this to myself?

I didn't read any of the thread(s) because I hadn't seen it.
this film is terrible on almost every level, this and
prequels fail to understand that star wars wasn't about
sleek effects or super seriousness, star wars was about
goofy charm with a bit of a DIY aesthetic, with fun
characters and throwaway quips. such a shame how disney
mismanaged the franchise as if it was a marvel movie.

Not counting you, Marlowe. I’m sure you have your reasons
to be so disappointed, but I’m mildly reassured that the
average internet retard hates tlj, the mass seems to love
hating it, but my mates and people I like enjoyed it and
didn’t make a fucking hipster fuss.

Bump a thread instead of starting something off. Google

“This film is terrible on almost every level”

Yawn, I’ve stopped reading by now. Don’t you realise
these vast exagérations have been done to death? Why are
you doing this? It’s been discussed to death here. Is it
about you?

Ah well! I need to watch it again it seems.

I was looking forward to it - i enjoyed the force awakens,
although I didn't enjoy rogue one at all, but I hoped that
this film would be more like episode VII, which did have a
bit of that lived-in feel, a bit of fun (despite han getting
shafted) - daisy ridley's acting really seems to have
worsened, bizarrely - in general the acting for many
characters is so self-conscious... and the 'comedy'... oh
god, it isn't a comedy yet it tries to crowbar in awful
jokes and comedic filming touches way too much. It's like
they've analysed the original trilogy then tried too hard to
emulate certain elements from it, making it feel, if you'll
excuse the pun, forced.

I won't take your sensitivity personally, don't worry.

To be honest Marlowe, you’re the only “regular” who
didn’t post in my 10k thread so I hate you.

I need to see it again but I really didn’t feel any of it
was as bad as you say. I didn’t really think the Rey Ren
think was great, but otherwise I had a nice time, alone, in
the more or less empty cinema.

To be truthful, I’m not that sensitive about it. I just
thought it has been talked to death about here. I’m sorry
you didn’t like it, and you’re not alone in saying stuff
like “this film is terrible on almost every level”.

just so you know I have read zero reviews of this film - the
only review I heard was the mark kermode review on his radio
show, so I haven't heard any of the negative comments you've
obviously experienced.

I could detail the many ways I disliked this film but I see
it's been covered - just know I went into it wanting to like
it, and that I'm not a die-hard star wars fan but I do have
the bluray boxset and a LEGO AT-AT sitting proudly by my

I dunno. I went in as a child and enjoyed myself. It’s
staggering to see the differences of opinion. I read an
article on differences of opinion between the public and
press and this was second. Can’t rem the first.

I accept your review as honest and unbiased. I’m just at a
loss. I know a bad movie when I see one, so what is wrong
with me? It can be that is just Star Wars, because I can’t
watch the prequels.

I'm just watching the RedLetterMedia review now, 46 minutes,
a good run time.

I must say plinkett’s review of the force awakens in-depth
talk of the prequels is a work of art

Yes I re-watched those recently as it goes - these guys are
always insightful; even when I don't agree with their
overall opinions of a film I usually can't fault their
intelligence and skill at film criticism.

I need to finish season one of Star Trek Discovery so I can
watch their season recap of it, too >_<

I had a dream the other night that Carrie Fisher had written
a sequel after Return of the Jedi, where Princess Leia comes
to earth, looked like the 1970s, on her own, and lives with
us and finds romance with someone who I think was played by
Donald Sutherland - and I could see it all and it looked
like a 70's film (which doesn't quite fit in with the
filming chronology, but whatever) - and it was going to be a
trilogy and ONLY at the end of the third one do we see a
ship taking off from earth, presumably built using the
knowledge that Leia had shared, in search of the Star Wars

It was quite sweet in a way, and infinitely better than THE

I think I've seen only four star wars movies. I think it's
the less interesting sci-fi universe. Good versus evil with
light sabers really ? -______-

Star trek is far more interesting I agree.

When I notice my shrink is a bit down the slightest mention
of Star Trek and he’s off on one, all happy again.
