Why Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a Complete Cinematic Failure

  • Published on May 22, 2018
  • Disney made me delete the ending of this video because I used the Star Wars theme. Here's the ending with new music: thexvid.com/video/HyIvGmSsF8M/video.html
    Star Wars: The Last Jedi, what a truly incredible trainwreck. Rian Johnson's complete inability to craft anything even resembling meaningful (or coherent) plotline is truly remarkable to behold. Six months out from this farce, let's take a closer look at everything that went wrong.

    One time Rian gave his wife a gift for Valentine's Day.
    She opened it and there was nothing inside because he wanted to *SUBVERT HER EXPECTATIONS.*

    Wow, you have a really negative way at looking at..well seems everything.
    Did you know: "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is the eighth-biggest worldwide film opening since 2002 ($450,821,889).
    Therefore, your video means nothing.

    *[rant]* This is what happens when marketing majors take over a company, any company in any kind of industry. When the creators leave and the MBAs take over, the original idea becomes irrelevant, secondary to a platform to sell advert space or subscriptions.
    To make money for money's sake is all they know how to do and don't know how to do anything else-other than hire passionless people only in it for the money. (Btw, this is something to keep in mind if you're getting involved in a startup. But, I digress.) *[/rant]*

    TBF I have a feeling if Rose was more attractive and fit the ideal looking Asian women in which Westerners prefer (small, cute and petite with a childish face) , I doubt her character would have received as much criticism. I mean her character was pretty shitty but some of the focus seemed to be on how she looked. So Imagine a bunch of women complaining how a character wasn't handsome enough or looked ugly/too skinny instead of being tall muscular and handsome, they would kinda look like bitches imo.

    kermit the frog and his two dads!!! that was freaking funny. I also agree, this movie sucked! It sucked worse than the solo movie, and i didn't think that could be possible. Id rather watch an entire star wars movie with nothing but jar jar characters than this one. It was so shitty that i just cant see myself buying it and solo to complete my collection. Lucas fucked up by letting Disney handle the franchise! To be honest, i hope the new star wars movie coming out is the last one.

  • Ken Hill

    You explained a lot of my frustration with this movie. I thought it left a lot to be desired, I just couldn't quite put my fingers on all that was wrong with it. One thing I thought you would mention though is, WHY ARE THE BOMBERS SO SLOW?? They flew X-wings at the Death Star and then they've got these "bombers" chugging along at 5 mph?!?! If Poe knew this, why would he have led this attack, knowing most of them would be destroyed by Tie Fighters?!?! That Rian (Ryan?) guy should have been fired and replaced by someone oh, I don't know, maybe Lawrence Kasdan, you know the guy that directed Empire, Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Force Awakens! Maybe that guy?!?! I bet he wouldn't have let Luke be a total Asshole. And to his daughter no less!! Anyone who thinks Rey is Obi-Wan's long-lost granddaughter is sorely mistaken. Think about it, Rey picks up whose lightsaber and sees all these visions? Luke's! She hugs Leia so hard like she's what? Her Aunt! Rey was perfectly at home on a desert planet. Do we know anybody who grew up on a desert planet so it makes sense he would land there for a while while wandering about the galaxy? Why yes, it's still Luke!! I don't know what's coming out this Christmas, but I hope it's better than what we've been getting!

    This movie completely sucks, and I agree with everything you say, but you're wrong about hyperspace. From Episode IV:
    Ben Kenobi: How long before you make the jump to lightspeed?
    Han Solo: It'll take a few moments to get the coordinates from the navicomputer.
    Luke Skywalker: [frantic] Are you kidding? At the rate they're gaining-
    Han Solo: Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it?

    "I'll probably keep going to see these movies, because it's interesting to see how..." Hollywood wastes money to dupe people and encourage more wasteful duping. Spend your money on a local arts program for seniors and disabled folk, to enrich their souls and yours. Devote your time to a senior /disabled persons' center.

    The opening cell service joke, the lightsaber toss, and Leia floating through space...hurt the movie for me early on. The Rose character was terrible, the story wasn’t solid, and by the time of the throne room fight...I lost interest. By the time Luke was a ghost and died, and Rey could pickup tons of rocks I wasn’t surprised anymore. The nerd in me hated the hyperspace destruction, watching a ATST RUNNING, and the rebellion be composed of a couple dozen people. I can write a better story everyday for a year that beats TLJ.

At least have the balls to be outright with it. Oh, look at me I'm a critic, so is everyone fucking else but I'm THEE critic, confined to TheXvid and relying on the visuals of the very movie I'm slagging off to make my critique interesting beyond my boring diatribe.

    I Admire Leia(RIP Carrie) and Padme, I like Rey, I like Mon Mothma, and I'm Sorry, I even Like Rose. However, I care More about the fate of Phasma, than that Holdo's atoms are Somehow scattered across space. Every minute diverges from what I Expect from Years of Star Wars. I Miss my Old Heroes.
    Luke should have turned like Obi-wan(RIP Guinness), confident and humorous, not cynical and crotchety. It would follow the Style of Foreshadowing and History Repeats that go through it all.
    When I saw the Casino scene, I said "That's for the Video Game." So much is Useless, and Nothing inspires that "Jedi IS a Religion!" feeling. No Boba Fets, No Emperor, No Grievous, CERTAINLY No Vader! Just Darth Pissy throwing fits when things go wrong! He wants to be Vader? Vader turned Quietly away and everyone Cringed at what he Might do!
    I AM looking forward to the Last film, like putting an Old Dog in Pain to sleep.

  • helicopters in the sewer

    Disney = a fascism that destroys all that is good. Only a Trekkie would hate Star Wars enough to destroy it from within.
    And you talked about someone who's a feminist in a way that doesn't totally worship them!!! I'm so angry!!!!! You're a horrible person, and I'm going to hurl worst possible insults at you that no self-respecting person would wish on their enemy bcuz I hate myself and no one likes me, and stuff!!!!!
    Because of the simple fact that Disney owns Star Wars, it is now guaranteed that no matter how many thousands of Star Wars movies Disney's movie factory shits out, there will never be another Star Wars movie that is even remotely good.
