      The Luke v kylo fight was one of my best moments.
      Force-project is an EU/legends power (which Disney murdered to desecrate the corpse) and a non violent intervention is about as Jedi as it gets.

    Yep, that 30 second intro describes my feelings exactly.
    During the watch I cringed a couple of times but otherwise enjoyed, afterwards I vivisected it.
    Rogue one I may buy, on heavy discount, eventually.
    The rest of the soy sequels? One and done, never to own.

    They could have made a movie about times, when good and Evil aren't easily separated.
    They could have made a movie that mirrors our difficulties with Holding on to our morals in These chaotic times.
    They could have made a movie about the "good side" being corrupted by bad People.
    They could have made a movie that challenges the idea of good in an intellectual way.

    Yet, they made a movie in spite of everything it should stand for. Blind hate for what Ms. Kennedy deems to be old-fashioned, toxicly masquline or naziesque has vaporized all the good ideas before they had a Chance.
    But she's just as much a victim of her opinions, as most People are. It's shame Star Wars was her Job.
    We could just act, as if it didn't happen, but that would be to deny carrying, what we care for.

    I hated The Force Awakens and that film killed Star Wars for me, I didn't bother to see The Last Jedi. The sequels were a middle finger to Star Wars IMHO. I never expected much from Disney's Star Wars anyway, Rebels gave me pause, that series carried the tradition of Stars Wars very well, which would be the case since George Lucas's Padawan Dave Filoni was at the helm of the series.

    These two films have led me to dub Star Wars, post Disney acquisition, as Disney Wars. Because of how bad Disney has been handling the franchise I now boycott all Disney Wars products. I will continue to enjoy the Star Wars products produced while George Lucas controlled it.

    Why does everyone think the deathstar was a massive plot hole. The so called weakness required a pilot to fire a torpedo on a target the size of a womprat(which I guess would be double the size of a real rat I guess I've never actually seen one) from miles away from the target and even if you get it directly in the sweet spot there is still the chance that the air blowing from the exhaust port would actually be to strong for the torpedo and blow it out if you fired from too far away.

    Really late and maybe someone poited it but imagine: You are a captain of a ship and you suspect you have a spy. Someone asks you in a CROWDED area what is your plan.
    At this point whether you trust them or not is irrelevant, if you answer the whole ship will know.

  • evilmark443
    evilmark443 17 days ago

    Honestly I could see in TFA where they were going to be going with Luke, and it's one of the reasons I hated that movie and something I can't really blame TLJ for since it was already setup. TLJ I hate because of how stupid the plot is, the biggest issue being the fact that it revolves around the First Order not being able to catch up to the Resistance fleet and therefore waiting for the Resistance to run out of gas ... that's the kind of idiocy I would expect from a bad fan film written by a teenager, not a high budget theatrical release. And the entire thing falls apart when you realize the First Order could EASILY have had a couple Star Destroyers break off and make tiny hyperspace jumps to surround the Resistance and destroy them. Seriously, ten minutes into the movie everyone except Luke, Rey, and Chewie should be dead.
    And then you have the entire casino planet side story that ultimately contributes NOTHING to the main plot of the movie, it's just a senseless waste of everyone's time and every event afterwards would have played out the same way if it had not happened at all.

    • LOTRFAN33
      LOTRFAN33 13 days ago

      Luke could have had a vision that "told" him to wait for Rey. He could have been rebuilding the Jedi in secret.
      BTW from TFA many of us took it that it was he who left the map so that he could be found when needed. I am sure there can be many other reasons for him to just lay low until the right time. JJ just didn't care.
      I am adding another variant: luke hid Rey and separated himself from her to protect her as he understood that she was key in defeating Snoke and Kylo.

    • evilmark443
      evilmark443 14 days ago

      LOTRFAN33 I can't think of any other reason that would make sense with the setup provided in TFA. Luke ran away and did his best to prevent people from being able to find him, all because Kylo Ren turned dark. Rian Johnson made it even worse by having him consider murdering his nephew in his sleep, but the major damage had already been done by JJ Abrams.
      The Luke we saw in RotJ would not have ran away from his duties because a single student fell to the dark side, no matter how much damage had been done.

    The end of Rogue One is why the light speed attack was stupid. A bunch of ships all jumped into light speed and crashed into the Indictor and did nothing to it. Also, why didn't Snoke's ship have indictors on it to prevent any ship from ramming it at lightspeed?

    I think the last jedi is a reflection of this generation. Ray and Kal are the perfect example.... don't know if they want to be good or bad, no standards, no rules, no core ... Kal is just confused and it just makes for a dumb story like to have the grandson of vader confused on if he wants to be bad or not. He kills his master so easily but then is tricked by Luke... come on!! I was always more of a star trek fan but this movie just made me hate everything about the "new movies" I personally will not see another star wars movie.

    Also, they try to make the case that the Jedi become sith so with no jedi, there's no sith, but for one, with no jedi, who can stop the sith? And not only that but in what is now the expanded universe were we have all these super powerful ancient sith, but back when most of those sith were around, the sith essentially forbid the training of any sith that used to be jedi, hence why many of the Jedi that turned were just rogues, making Darth Vader the exception and not the rule

    While I watched I was also mildly entertained , thinking “well at least it’s not a shameless copy like TFA..”. But as I walked home from the movie theater , I became really really angry. I decided this movie is an insult , an absolute affront to my intelligence. The worst Star Wars movie ever made. Because it’s not just dead and empty (like TFA) but also filled to the brim with crap.

  • Gormathius Nightstrider

    I only saw the first of the new movies, and I had the same reaction as you to the First Order: Where did these new imperialists even come from? I think it would actually make a lot more sense for the First Order to be basically terrorists. Blowing up power plants, kidnapping people to be indoctrinated in their ways, that sort of thing.
    Also, bonus criticism: First Order is a super generic name for overtly evil organisations. This is a personal thing, but I just can’t take the villains seriously with such a massive cliche of a name.

    20:00 Shad, your limited knowledge of history really shows here. Practically speaking, there are many different ways to sense ships. Even our modern military doesn't just use one piece of equipment to "scan". Instead they use many different pieces of equipment to find things that are hiding in different ways (i.e radar AND sonar AND infrared scanning to search for submarines).
    For instance, modern nuclear submarines are very, very soundproof so detection via sonar is very different. But nuclear submarines leave behind a trail of warm water, something that can be picked up by infrared detector

  • Connor Moodie
    Connor Moodie 22 days ago

    Shad, before you make another Star Wars video PLEASE investigate the extended universe. The empire was NOT destroyed after the battle of Jaco, it was simply the turning point in the war where the empire lost their grip on power. After they were defeated the empire fractured into several regions occupied by imperial war lords ( previously the empire high command). The first order was a fractured remnant of the imperial army that retreated into the unknown region of the galaxy, there they were found by snoke and shaped into the first order where they then conquered thousands of worlds in the outer rim and the unknown region in secret to build their power base.
    The star killer base was a super weapon that was ALREADY under construction by the empire. It was not finished by the time the empire fell. Construction was started again by the first order and finished several decades later.
    As for the fact that the new republic is not in a position of power. Unless you forgot the star killer base did get a shot off that destroyed several new republic worlds that would have surely disrupted the power and organization of the new republic.

  • Chris Hutchinson

    What I hate most about the false star wars movie is their treatment of Luke. Its not killing him, its not even turning him into a miserable hermit. Its that after his ultimate victory ie saving his fathers soul and bringing down the Sith he does nothing! He is given no life, no family and no impact on the universe.
    Luke is utterly butchered by people who have no idea about what makes a hero.

  • Noah Strain
    Noah Strain 23 days ago

    I agree. Liking a movie and enjoyment are two separate things. Its the rewatch value, you know? I'll admit, I got into Kendo and HEMA because of SW OT and phantom menace. But watching it now, and more esp. the new trilogy my enjoyment is nil. Seeing the fighting in movies I crack up so hard. Few get it right. I appreciate the first movies for at least adding some sort of style into its choreography and even philosophy into the lore.
    That being said, there are many... creative liberties taken to ensure the heroes and villains survive/die at the "appropriate" times instead of when they slip up. Cheers!

    The force awakens ruined star wars with their Mary Sue and SJW neo-feminazi agenda. Rey isn't even a real character, she's an OP pretty face. Which is even more insulting than objectifying her, something that star wars never did to begin with. The only way to fix it is if she is actually the bad guy. You know Disney doesn't have the balls to make a woman evil though. Bottom line, Disney ruined star wars.

  • Craig Gallagher

    I agree with all your points on TLJ and the ST at large but the example of the Millennium Falcon having a cloaking device is not correct. It is the act of it attaching to the back of the Star Destroyer that hides it from their radar / scanners as the Falcon effectively becomes part of the radar signature of the destroyer itself.

    I don't understand why Finn isn't the CENTRAL main character of the Sequels, since the stories tend to revolve around Rey the Mary-Sue. His backstory is the most original and compelling compared to the others. Poe is just a nicer version of Han Solo, and Ray is a bastardized hybrid of Leia and Luke with no reason to be so good at what she does.
    Finn being taken from birth to become a stormtrooper could've been more fleshed out. What if, maybe, his parents were unknowingly Force-sensitive, and Finn could train to become a Jedi after honing his latent powers that were actively suppressed by the First Order's indoctrination? I mean, he definitely had more combat training than Rey did, so he was the more likely candidate to defeat Kylo in Force Awakens.
    I even joke that Finn has a sort of harem as it is: Rey, Rose, and Poe all want to be intimate with him.

  • Richard Wiswell
    Richard Wiswell 25 days ago

    It's stupid shit like this that leads me to believe that people who hate on this movie have no intelligence. "Holdo should have told everyone her plan" they were just tracked through hyperspace which shouldn't be possible as far as she knows someones feeding information or that if she had told pao that would have prevented the mutiny. He doesn't really plan to mutiny after he finds out her plan and calls her a coward and a traitor. "Rey should be useless with a lightsaber" shes spent her whole life having to protect herself with melee weapons, the small bit of time that she spent with the lightsaber getting a feel for would make her able to at least be competent with it. Idk where your coming up with the random time frame of luke having spent months with yoda. His friends went to cloud city got kidnapped and then he started having visions about them being in trouble and left. Luke spent what maximum of a few week training before his fight with vader who's been wielding a lightsaber for 30+ years. The whole plan was for the main ship to be a distraction while the transports fled to the base, but was messed up because the code breaker overheard finn and pao talking about holds plan. If they didn't go to the casino world and get the code breaker he couldn't have betrayed them therefore no final act for the movie. As for the lightspeed ramming its stated in the original trilogy by han that you have to carefully calculate your jumps otherwise you get pulled out into a star or planet. This why also why the kessel run is measured in a distance because they cant travel a straight path. Hyperspace engines are also expensive as watto said in the original trilogy that it would probably be cheaper to buy a new ship then fix the hyperdrive. It could also be an issue of something of a significant size would be needed to do real damage. "Luke should have gone there in person" and what get blown up from massive laser fire? That's part of the theme is the jedi are romanticized and overblown to the point of mythological proportions. His legend is more powerful then him at this point. "The force is a mcguffin and undefined" no different then the original trilogy, they introduced force lightning in the last 10 minutes hell vader force choked a guy on an entirely different ship. Complaining about starkiller base being a waste of resources because the first 2 death stars couldn't have made hundreds or thousands of star destroyers themselves. Complaining about the destruction of starkiller base not setting back the first order and them still being a big threat in the next movie. Yes because it's not like the ot had a big fuck off space station get blown up then the start of the next movie the rebels are on the run retreating from an overwhelming force. He keeps complaining the first order comes from nowhere even though its stated they were formed from remnants of when the empire started collapsing. This is also like 40 years since them that they been force recruiting and training people since childhood to fight. Also when did they ever say the republic got reestablished I missed that part, sure they killed the emperor and dealt a huge blow to the empire to where it probably had a long time before the first order got up to speed but that doesn't automatically spawn a republic and concentrated system of government across thousand of planets. Solo clearly stated that the reason he left was because he felt like he had failed when kylo turned to the dark side and joined the first order and couldn't face leia's because he blamed himself for it. This is part of the problem you have these romanticized versions of these characters that you think there gone through character development now they should be flawless gods and make perfect decisions on everything instead of the fact that they're supposed to be normal people. How exactly is han solo a well known general or the rebel alliance supposed to just walk into first order based looking for his son? Complaints of like again, your romanticizing him saying he should be flawless, even in his fight with vader he was on the brink of crossing the line to kill him. He has seen war lost friends seen so many suffer because of the dark side and now he sees some young boy that seems to be going down that path, but no he would never contemplating killing someone to save millions or billions who might suffer if he doesnt. This is also what 40 years after the events of return of the jedi? They are not the same people. Fuck go back and look at your views and opinions on stuff even 5-10 years ago I would bet you were a pretty different person. The defloaking scan there could be limitations to it maybe it can only be used so often or it takes long to run or something arbitrary maybe it has a huge power draw and you have to fill a capacitor to run it.

    I agree with many of your complaints with the movie, but I was always under the impression there was a mystical balance to the force.
    And as the dark side increased in power, and the jedi's were culled and lost, it makes perfect sense that someone would appear who seemingly randomly could use the force for good.
    Especially after Luke's death, I would expect even crazier force powers from her in the future.
    But yeah, the rest of what you said, 100% in your boat. I just never questioned the force powers.

    The only intelligent character was Poe Dameron, and they treated him like an idiot. If he hadn't been willing to take down that Dreadnaught (most generic name ever for a big scary ship) no matter the cost, the chase scene wouldn't have mattered at all. Those long-range cannons would have torn the fleet apart before Vice-Admiral Gender Studies escape plan could have ever been done. You are wrong about launching the escape ships though. When Poe found out, they were in the process of refuelling them from the big ship's reserves, so they couldn't have launched sooner.

      Also, I never interpreted Luke drawing his lightsaber on Kylo as an attempt at or desire to murder his nephew, but a reflexive reaction to a visceral Force vision. I still hate the movie, but that scene didn't bother me as much.

    I remember sitting through this movie in the theater and questioning nearly every 10 minutes if they somehow slipped a Gundam film into it. I honestly felt like I was sitting through Gundam Wing and all of it's shitty decisions all over again, but with Star Wars slapped on the title. (Obviously, there were no giant mechs/Gundams, but I'm talking space battles and political bullshit.) I am extremely disappointed with this contribution to the franchise. It's beginning to feel like the worst kind of fanfiction being forced into the canon, full of references and cross-over elements from other franchises within the genre.

    Thank you, Shad. I thought I was the only one irritated that they seemed more intent on recycling the original script than respecting the franchise and development of the characters we all love. I appreciate that they want to nod to the legacy of the franchise, but The Force Awakens was wholesale theft and now The Last Jedi has done... well, exactly what you said: killed Star Wars. It's like they hate the fan base and want to piss them off. I honestly don't even think I'll watch the third one in theatres; I'm that annoyed with them. If I do watch it, it will be on Netflix when I have nothing else to watch. Maybe in a year.
    Honestly, I am at the point where I'm happy to write these films off and keep the books (Star Wars Legends) as my canon of the series.

    The SJW producers and directors are purposefully destroying the mythos which has become a part of our culture.
    Disney bought a unstoppable franchise but then turned it over to people that just want to take it apart.

    no... cause the only way to get through an EXHAUST port would be a massive Force, it was already explained in episode 4 A new hope. Rogue One was unneeded filler

    Comments as I go:
    (please keep in mind that I was also not a fan of The Last Jedi. While I enjoyed some of it, I was disappointed by the movie overall by the time I left the theater.)
    - The Battle of Jakku formally ended the Empire, but there were still remnants out there that didn't back down and retreated to their own space. There were also those select Imperials that were invited to the Unknown Regions via Operation Cinder (which happened prior to Jakku), which would later become the First Order.
    - Starkiller Base actually IS a planet (many believe that it's Ilum, the planet where Jedi Younglings would find their Kyber Crystals) that was re-purposed into a weapon. Overall mechanics of the build was probably similar to the Death Star.
    - Starkiller Base was still stupid, though.
    - Star Wars ships won't allow auto-piloting into a Mass Shadow, unless someone with extreme technical know how can override it (Star Wars the Clone Wars Season 1). This is why the ramming was done manually. As to why it's not done earlier? A: People don't like dying. B: A large ship destroying a somewhat larger ship (no more than 10x as big) deals a lot more relative damage than a much smaller ship against the much, much, much larger Death Star.
    - The purpose of Luke being on Crayt was to delay, and delay only. There was no need for him to be there, and he also had no ship after the Millenium Falcon left. The Jedi are to use the Force for Defense, not Attack, so Luke fighting a battle by not actually being there is possibly the most Jedi thing ever done in the movies. Personally, I think Luke was one of the few things they got mostly right in the movie.
    - While the First Order was on the ropes after the destruction of Starkiller Base, the New Republic and the Resistance were also on the ropes, possibly even more so. The entire movie of the Last Jedi was about 5 or so First Order ships chasing 5 or so smaller remaining Resistance ships. Very little suggests that they've conquered the galaxy yet, just that it's inevitable with the entire Republic Fleet and Government destroyed on Hosnian Prime, and all that's left to fight back is the ragtag remainders of the Resistance.
    - 14:00 That is the fundamental problem with sequels to stories that have ended. In some way shape or form, the story must have a conflict of some sort, thus undermining the accomplishments of the previous ending. I do feel that they could've found a way to mitigate that though.
    - 17:50 Luke was tempted on several occasions to kill Vader, even though he was trying to save his FATHER, and only stopped short once his head cooled a little. Most of what was in TLJ was in-character for Luke. He was still struggling with that anger/fear, especially since he's seen it happen before. I admit that the flashback scenes were poorly executed/explained, but the underlying logic is sound and in-character for Luke. It wasn't until after his failure that he locked himself away because he felt that he was the problem.
    - I, too, feel that it's going to be a monumental task to salvage this Trilogy with 9 alone. I liked 7, though not anywhere near as much as the OT and Rogue One, but not to the point where I was invested in the story (I only cared about Finn after watching 7). TLJ was supposed to get me back on board, but did the opposite to the point that I don't really care much about 9 at all. Disney-Lucasfilm's TV, Book, and Comics offerings have, for the most part, been infinitely better than any of the Disney era movies (Lucasfilm is still being run by Lucasfilm, just sans George so I feel it necessary to say Lucasfilm. Too many people believe it's Disney ruining Star Wars, but it's largely Lucasfilm that's doing it. Disney just approves projects as far as I'm aware).

    last jedi and force awakens should no longer be canon and needs to be deleted from the star wars lore and franchise, except for rouge one only.

    Nothing beats watching The Force Awakens in theaters, but I understand why you wouldn't enjoy it as much the second time. I believe that The Force Awakens is a great movie, but The Last Jedi? No way.

    I concur!!! Episode 7 8 and 9 will need to be Rebooted to A new 7 8 and 9... These Movies Suck!!! Kennedy, Jones, and Abrams intentionally Ruined these movies... It was not a mistake... They did it because of their leftist ideologies... I hope the entire franchise crashes and burns until someone respectable comes along reboots them with a Saga worthy of Star Wars... This is shit movie making by shitty people...

    Thank you for articulating almost every thought I have been having...I also agree, if you watch these movies just as movies (apart from feeling like they rip off Star Wars) they are quite enjoyable. But this is not Star Wars. To say it is is disingenuous and, I agree, destroys the legacy of the Star Wars trilogy, even the prequels didn't DESTROY the idea of the universe.

    The main reason I can tell to not use light speed ramming more is you don't Saxby to portray your good guys as suicide bombers.

    In the next film, Luke comes back as a psychopathic clown. (After all, you can't spell Mark Hamill without "Arkham" in the middle).

    Months of training with Yoda? I'm not sure exactly how that fits with the time scale for the other group of heroes. Because Han, Leia, Chewy, and 3PO basically make a hard run through the asteroid belt to escape Vader, then limped to Bespin. It doesn't really seem like they spent months in Cloud City, or months on the run. You could make the case that, without hyperdrive, they could only move at subluminal speeds, and that took months, but they were being pursued, so that doesn't quite seem right, either.
    But I will grant this: Luke spent at least a few days undergoing intensive training. If I was generous, it might have been a week or two. But it was intensive. So at the very least, it was more thorough than Rei's.

      And Luke had three years on his own to train a bit with his lightsaber after ANH. Comes nowhere close to being trained by a Master, but still much more than Rey who went from total noob to godlike in a matter of days without any reasonable explanation.
