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.
    ALSO: Making these videos takes a ton of work, and TheXvid ad revenue doesn't really pay the bills. If you guys want to see more of my movie reviews and other fun content, please consider supporting me at patreon.com/gesualdi.

    Didn’t watch it in the cinema. Waited until it came out on blu-ray. Bought it. Watched it. Fell asleep after an hour. Watched it again. Fell asleep after an hour and a bit. Watched it again. Finished it. Just. Haven’t watched it again. And if Snoke is as powerful as is made out, how the F*** did he not sense Kylo Ren turning the lightsaber even though he knew he was wanting it? Stupid tit having it lying there in the first place.....Ha Ha. Endings stupid. The starts stupid too. And the middle bit. Another Disney f*** up on a classic franchise !!!!!!!!!! Well done Lucas for selling out. MUPPET

    Over a quarter MILLION people can't be wrong. This review is spot-on, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the greatest cinematic disappointment since The Matrix: Reloaded.

      ZAFARIA 2 hours ago

      Absolutely. Just calling everyone who didn't like the film "wrong about it" is a very naive approach from defenders of this film. A quarter million people is a lot of people to be "wrong." Maybe there's some actual weight as to why so many people think this film is garbage. And for disney to lash back at criticizers saying "you don't get it" is only going to alienate their fan base and lose more profits. The failure of Solo and the underwhelming attendance to Galaxy's Edge at Disney World and Disney Land is evidence of this.

    Talking about #4 with the hyperspace thing, you know that there was an episode of The Clone Wars, which is a part of the CANON universe, where they shot a CIS Destroyer into a planet by making it go into hyperspace, so #4 is very much irrelevant lol, you talked about books but not the tv shows, gotta do better on the research

    The I am your father twist is great because not only do the audience not expect it. It’s also subtly foreshadowed with Yoda saying much anger in him like his father and the cave scene.

    So, in Episode IV, Han Solo has to wait for calculations from the Nav computer so they don't fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova. That sounds like what happened in Episode VIII in regards to hyperspace.

    hyperspace is not going really fast if that was the case , any ship going that fast will immediately burn up due to friction from outer space gasses and particles. not the mention the tremendous amount of energy needed to go faster than light speed. more energy than what the sun put out.

      Im a woman... and I think that TLJ is full of man hating moments. Leia slaps Poe, Rose electrocutes Fin, Leia shoots Poe even though he has already lowered his weapon (all for no reason). Imagine what would happen if it was the men who slapped, shot and electrocuted the women.
