    Hello there!

    It's pretty crazy that it's been two years since I put out that video ranting about a crappy movie and now, here we are.

    Disney managed to make, essentially, the exact same mistake as they did in 2017 and so I have a perspective to share on the subject. This video kinda wiped me out a bit, I've been writing, editing and rendering for 3 weeks straight, little sleep/socialising but it meant getting something that normally takes about a month and a half out, in half the time.

    Thanks to that, there may be a couple of mistakes and corners cut but the message is mostly unmistakable;

    The Rise of Skywalker was awful, the sequel trilogy was a disaster...

    But I am thankful for what it brought my life. I'm thankful for you lot enjoying my content and supporting this channel. I guess this video marks the end of an era in a way, or at least the bookend for the two years. I have a bunch of big plans for 2020, I hope to see you lot there. o/

    Also, check out Shadiversity, he makes kickass Medieval media analysis videos -

    See yah next time folks...

      I think your reviews of these Disney sequels using the STAR WARS theme and characters (that are systematically undermined and killed off) are superb...
      Far better than the films and infinitely more entertaining...
      And make for repeat watching.
      Thank you...

    Anyone else curious about what the Rotten Tomatoes audience score actually is? It obviously isn't really 86%. If we are to take just talking to people in real life or online. I survey around 15%-20%. Seriously at work I surveyed 50+ people who watch Star Wars at my work and 6 or 7 people who have a positive opinion or good enough for this movie. 6ish/out of 50+. Sure it is only 50 people compared to millions worldwide but I you can get a close enough comparison when you do a survey like this

    As far as I’m concerned Rey, Snoke, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Rose, Kylo, Hux, Pryde, Maz, Babu, Zorri, Phasma, and the rest of these characters aren’t even Star Wars characters. They’re fan fiction characters forced into alleged “Star Wars movies”

    I don't understand all the hate on the new trilogy. Do the stories suck? Sure, but all of the Star Wars stories suck. These aren't Shakespearean plays. Star Wars has more plot holes than Swiss cheese.
    Ben Kenobi and Darth Vader follow this "ancient" religion that nobody heard of, that dominated military leadership like 20 years before. Somehow. Vader can't figure out that is Leia is his daughter (even though he knows and interacts with her in the Senate and tortures her in IV). Nor did anyone ask Senator Bail Organa how he came to adopt her. Ewoks defeat storm troopers with logs and rocks. A queen is an elected position with a term. Oh, and she shops at an outer rim ancient Mongolian thrift store. Mannequin Skywalker defeats a cruiser by randomly hitting buttons. Vulture droids, AKA the most inefficient way to down a ship. It would be like the British Navy using termites to defeat the Spanish Armada. Jar-Jar. AT-AT walkers that are so poorly designed that you can trip them with a wire. And why does a fighter have a tow cable in the first place? I could go on

      ​@Douglas Lamar Yep, and let's be honest. The stories were terrible. What worked was the universe. That's the magic that Lucas had. Lightsabers are cool (rediculous science but cool). The same with the death star, blasters (a much slower than a gun plasma weapon), hyperspace, etc. But it was cool to watch as long as you really don't too much attention to the story.
      This is not unique to Star Wars. Many of today's movies kind of suck if you pay close attention to the plot. The issue I have with the new trilogy is that there is too much rehashing of the old crappy storyline. Rey is Luke, Snoke was the emperor until the emperor was the emperor, Kylo is emo Darth, Death star became death moon, then death ships. Poe is the pre force luke + Solo, Finn is the token black guy (Lando, then Windu) who is stuck in the friend zone. BB8 is R2D2.

    Why does Palpatine tell Rey his plan? Upon hearing that his plan is for Rey to strike him down of course she was going to do everything to not do that... why wouldn't he just antagonise her to a point that she just attacks him in rage?
    Palpatine literally spent the entire prequel trilogy, and his appearances in the original trilogy secretly manipulating people & events, and yet in this he just straight up tells super-Rey his plan as though she's just going to go along with it.

    Hi there. I love the first six films (more the older ones), but these last 3 are just awful. Writing is so poor that it is unwatchable. I only saw SW VII, The Force Awakens and I was in pain. For my SW is dead. The only way to solve this would be to have George Lucas re do the last 3 films, but I don't think he has the energy or the patience to do so. At least we have the first 6 to watch...

    The only thing these movies have going for them is the special effects and the visuals.

  • philippe Ouellette

    16:03 well yes. force user can do more precise hyperspace jump, piloting, and targeting then a ship computer ever could. in "a new hope" Obi-wan is saying "use the force luke" for a reason. Poe maybe is an ace pilot but using the force is like having a joker in your sleeve.

    the computer could tells you "there is a 85% chance to hit if you shoot in the next 3 second" but the force will tells you "it's very unlikely you will miss if you shoot....NOW". the unlikely chance being that the guy you are shooting has the force on his side as well to dodge. But then it all comes down to machine specs.

    1:07:38 WHY do they have to fight? Kylo does not want to fight her, he wants them to go to Exegol together and fight the Emperor. And Rey attacks him because... what? Because she wants to go to Exegol and fight the Emperor alone? That's just silly! Kylo is a mighty warrior, she could use his help in that fight!
    Besides, she didn't know he had Mcmuffin1 on his ship. So if she killed him, there would be NO way for her to get to Exegol. So WHY attack him?
    Alright, maybe she hated him so much that she couldn't think straight, she just wanted him dead.
    But... she healed him right after she run him through with his saber!
    Why?? He was still her enemy, wasn't he? He was still the leader of the First Order, she didn't know he'll switch sides 5 minutes after she heals him.
    That's all just silly! So silly!

    Man when I think about the setup SW rebels were going for, with the bendu, and the force being its own entity that binds everything together, there was no dark, or light only the force. I always thought the main point to the sagas was the fact that the universe did not need the jedi nor the sith, only the force to bind everything together and push things along. In fact i always felt that the moral of the sagas was no mater how good your intentions are, if you struggle for power , people are gonna suffer regardless. The balance was about regainig the balance that was offset in the beginning of it all with the first force users tipping the balance, and everything to follow was the force trying to regain balance or in other words take back the force from the jedi and the sith. And playing Kotr, reading the expanded universe you could feel and see that both jedis andthe sith are nothing more then individuals clinging to their own morals and beliefs, constantly oversteping the limits with the way they use the force. It could have been a story about the dangers of falling prey to ones ambition, being over zealous and the pitfalls of trying to do the right thing in the worng ways. A story about growth, acceptance and humility and perspective, you know, about being human. But no... good wins, evil sucks, gg.

      Also why G. Lucas ever needed another 4 billion dollars is beyond me. Just shows you how important that message would be. And now we got this agenda driven, poorly written, story deprived, disconnected... stuff. Media is an important world shaping tool. In a way the SW saga movies are the perfect example on how the media and hollywood were shaped and what they have shaped into. It is no longer about enterraining the masses, but filling pockets with abusing the nostalgia of people that grew to the values the old movies brought forth. It was never a movie for children with space wizards, it was a story about interplanetary war, slavery, politics, connections and destinies and most importantly the perspective of the human soul and how easily it twists when it craves to hold onto things that can't be saved and ultimately the victory of the human spirit. But now at the end of it all we got a jedi that never struggles, always does the right thing, gets unbelivable force powers and takes the Skywalker name. Its kinda poetic actually, Anakin fell under palpatine due to his own hubrise, Luke fought so hard to get the force powerful skywalker name and his own father out of the clutches of palpatine and now a Palpatine carries the skywalker name.

    Regarding the Snoke clones, I haven't watched the movie and am not familiar with the details of the the story. BUT if I were to come up with a theory, I would say that Palpatine was ¬attempting¬ to clone Snoke. It may be that the success rate is very low.
    As to why, I can only guess because he wants to use them as his personal generals? Its also possible that Palpatine gave up after a while, realizing its too much effort to try and repeat his success.
    That's just my theory regarding the botched clones.
