    Would have made more sense to have the origins of the First Order grow from within the dissatisfaction of the new Republic.
    Would have also made more sense to have Snoke's backstory explained as a former apprentice of Darth Vader, would have infiltrated the angst of people within the new Republic and would have logically explained the First Order.
    But now they have killed off Snoke, no chance to explain why things from episode 7 happened as well as nothing to build now that Princess Leia is not going to play a major role in episode 9 because of the actress passing away.

    My first impression was, good space opera movie, but they killed off the wrong character considering what happened to one cast member after the film was made.
    And in reflections, I did feel that they made it seem like being a Jedi could be achieved by anyone when in reality only certain people with natural skills can have the ability of being a Jedi.

    bit late with this comment, but I'ed go a lot further than most. This was done deliberately. Think about it, Star Wars has one of the biggest grand narratives of all stories and what is the goal of postmodernism, destroy grand narratives. Everything about "new" star wars is about removing the traditional fan base from Star Wars. There is no redemption, only destruction, character development is replaced with character empowerment and old heroes must be no only killed off, but completely ruined in the eyes of the fans.
    This is the deliberate destruction of culture in the name of ideological "Progress". At the end of the day, we need to create a new counter culture, new heroes, new stories and new grand narratives because the old ones being killed by ideological nutcases.

    well let's see what happens with the conclusion of the film. however really Vader well a great badass MF was fairly tame compared to the emperor. i kinda think snook was the emperor's teacher and he survived the attempted assassination. the name first orders name somewhat supports this if snook was the one who instructed the emperor.
    also I really need to state this again ray was already a badass with the Gaddafi stick and had been trained to use a staff weapon and not a sword.

    starkiller base was built from a planet and was not easy to destroy. it took sabotage to destroy it. the last Jedi takes place within weeks of the force awakens. also, ray was a trained to use a quarterstaff and not a sword.
    Om Luke's ship was sunk into the ocean and had likely been there for years it likely does not function anymore.
    starkiller base wiped out the republic. so the alliance was weaker.

    Its Brilliant and he has that kind of bored, dry brittish sounding tone j is voice it makes it hilarious while simultaneously being razor sharp jn its critique, the total runtime of the whole thing is *5 friggin hours* but it felt like half an hour, I was helplessly stuck to my monitor like a fat kid on a cupcake, thats gow good and entertaining it was.

    The First Order is actually the most realistic part of the new trilogy. Did the Rebels really think that every supporter of the Empire would magically change his attitude with Palpatine's death? They celebrated on Coruscant. But likely not in the Outer Rim.

    Since you have given an intelligent and well thought out commentary on a truly horrible movie, you will now be labeled a misogynistic man baby by no-talent Ruin Johnson and Darth Kennedy.
    Because of the disgraceful way that Lucasfilm and Disney raped the legacy of George Lucas and destroyed a truly remarkable and important part of American mythology, I really have no interest in anything that Lucasfilm has in store as long as Kennedy is calling the shots.
    We expected Darth Caedus and Jania Solo Fel and got Emo Ren and Mary Sue Rae.

    Disney has cheated itself out of billions due to EPs 7 and 8. They made money sure but they could have doubled the revenues of each and they cheated themselves out of Billions from Rogue One and Solo a starwars movie. Honestly, if Disney sought me out I would say either earn billions with my ideas for EP 9 or potentially lose out on billions in revenue again.

    The funny thing is that the entire “do a cloak ship scan” is a plot hole layered on a plot hole layered on nonsense. You mentioned the nonsense part that they could suddenly do a “cloak scan” but you forgot the major plot hole with this.
    The main reason Finn & Rose were doing this entire side mission was to disable the hyperspace tracker so that they could hyperspace away and not be tracked. The entire mutiny and side mission only occurred because Holdo doesn’t reveal the plan of the cloaked ships so they come up with this plan thinking Holdo is leading them to die and has no plan.
    Finn & Rose have no knowledge of the cloaked ship plan and dio shouldn’t either as he simply knows of their plan to disable the tracker.
    So why dio should tell them about these cloaked ships when that wasn’t why they were there is a major plot hole.

    very true.. why do you think Darthomire has been so openly used in the
    disney starwars franchise, from games to the Animation series.. while we
    all remember the Jedi were all wiped out and Valley of the Jedi was
    lost , Disney are quick to jump on the Darthomire band wagon.. Simply
    putting it.. Darthomire is a dark force planet and Disney can knock out
    bad guys anytime they want, ( i mean toys).. the Dark side has no
    competition, apart from Rey (laugh laugh)... thus... more endless crap

    The criticisms of The Last Jedi can be argued against/explained away
    “Why did the bombs fall on the Dreadnaught in space?”
    The gravity inside the bombers would’ve pulled them down and when they passed through the shield they would’ve kept going because it’s space. Not to mention in TESB The TIE bombers dropped bombs on the asteroids looking for the Falcon in space.
    “Luke was acting out of character”
    Obi Wan and Yoda literally did the exact same thing.
    “Why didn’t the FO just launch TIE fighters at the Resistance fleet?”
    The Experimental Shield protecting The Raddus was able to deflect all The Supremacy’s shots leaving the fighters unprotected. You can actually see a few of them get shot down by The Raddus.
    “Why didn’t Admiral Holdo share her plan?”
    The FO literally tracked them through light speed with no explanation as to how. The most obvious answer was a traitor. Keep in mind Poe, Finn, and Rose were the only ones who knew about the tracker
    “Canto Bight was pointless”
    I mostly agree with that one but it was a nice way to get away from the main plots. The plots take place on a small island and on a doomed space ship. Not very exiting.
    “Why didn’t the Rebels use the Holdo Maneuver on the Death Star?”
    1. The Death Star is massive. Even the Raddus (the largest Mon Calamari ship we know of) could only poke a very small hole in it.
    2. Everyone forgets the scene in ROTJ where a tiny rebel fighter takes out Darth Vader’s star destroyer. I don’t see anyone asking “Why don’t they just send fighters into the bridges of ships?” It’s a lot less costly than using a cruiser
    3. The real life equivalent is like saying nukes ruined wars.
    “Rey is a Mary Sue”
    1. She flys the Falcon because she’s a pilot. She literally says that in TFA
    2. She’s able to beat Kylo because he was shot by a bow caster, emotionally conflicted because he just killed his dad, stabbed a few times, and she already has training with a melee weapon
    3. Again she can use a lightsaber because she can fight with her staff well.
    4. She’s able to use the force so easily because of Kylo. Snoke literally says it. *Darkness rises and Light to meet it*
    That’s all the major ones. I’m not trying to convince anyone TLJ was amazing but those were some criticisms I found silly.
    Anyway have a good day :)

    • Matthew St. Cyr

      Luke is not Yoda or Obi-Wan. Yoda and Obi-Wan were fully convinced that Luke would have to kill Vader, while Luke adamantly believed he could save Vader. A far cry from someone willing to kill his nephew for sensing dark thoughts.
      The earlier part of the film tried to say that the surface cannons on the Dreadnought could not hit Poe because of their design, but they later have to pull their TIE Fighters back because the Raddus' surface cannons do work? So bad guys' surface cannons don't work and good guys' surface cannons do work because plot. Wow. How convenient.
      Maybe the main plots should've been more interesting.
      One TIE fighter to damage the bridge of a Star Destroyer vs One empty cruiser takes out The Supremacy + an entire fleet of Star Destroyers... Anyone else notice that the scale of damage is very different?
      "Darkness rises and Light to meet it" That doesn't explain why she's able to do so much _without any training._ Luke needed training from Obi-Wan and Yoda. In the Prequels, the most that Anakin: the chosen one, could do without training was precognition. Even with training, both these two got toyed with by antagonists and lost fights; losing their arms. I'm not saying Rey has to lose; I'm saying she needs to struggle, and she never does.

    I wish they'd scrap the current movies, cherry pick the best stories and ideas from legends and make a sequel trilogy off of them. They could do the whole palpatine returns or Thrawn showing up or just the continuation war between the new republic and the imperial remnant. Follow that with another trilogy about the yuzhan vong or mandolorians or some similar massive threat to bring the two sides together and you'd probably have a series to rival the original but no.

    Depends how much stupidity one is willing to accept. Wiz-bang visuals and a few jokes only go so far. Shad is absolutely correct on them destroying everything that came before. The entire story and accomplishment of the original trilogy which you can build on, is instead wiped clean with the most stupid of concepts: First order suddenly out there making the New republic the rebels??? again??? not to mention the repetition of bigger and bigger planet/sun killers, etc. terrible story telling. It ofcourse makes sense that there is no story, since the script writer, poor guy, imploded on all the possible ideas and fear of mucking it up, and bowed out last minute, and in stepped JJ, who could never be expected to come up with a actual story or script, in the mere month or two that was left, before shooting was to begin, so he simply regurgitated a reboot/copy-cat movie of the previous movies. Although i'd have hoped he'd have tried coming up with a better story for the sequel, perhaps salvaging the repetition of the first, but he just doubled down, and copied more.

    i loved 4-6, at first i hated 1-3 for the horrendous break in design style and style of storytelling, but they somehow grew on me nontheless, but from the few rants i've heard about anything that came afterwards, only rogue one is an acceptable movie in terms of worthy of the legacy. i hated how they made the clone wars series a 3D-Anime-Series with those typical child-scheme character styles typical for asian anime - but that just showed very clearly that it was made for children and they just made the show for the(ir) money. the other works just shitting on the lore for the sake of being PC and innovative. "we need a female hero, so we just made one" well, but they shouldn't have her be a master without the required training, just to sneak in the sublime feminazi statement "women are better than men".

So I built a second one. And that one sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, and then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up.
    They still need to make one more Death Star and that one won't be destroyed so he can give it to his son.

    I have liked Rogue One more every time I've watched it. The first time, Rogue One was just too different from "Star Wars" to go without notice. I kept getting slightly jarred from the flow of the movie by things from cinematic and directing choices to the background score just not being what I considered right. But the more I have seen Rogue One (probably 5-6 times now), the more I have been able to accept those differences and get lost in the movie. I now enjoy it so much it is competing with Empire Strikes Back for my third favorite Star Wars film.

    Very much agree Shad. And if you are looking for a story that would have continued the original trilogy well, might I recommend the Thrawn book trilogy by Timothy Zahn. They pick up only a couple years after the original trilogy and use the same characters while adding in well rounded ones of their own. The plot is a logical continuation from the position of the original trilogy, showing the new republic as the dominant force in the galaxy while still cleaning up an imperial remnant. The conflict comes from a brilliant imperial commander that poses a danger of reversing the republic’s success. It’s an awesome read and basically launched the expanded book universe that Disney would eventually destroy to make way for their own flashy lights.

    Yes, the Empire was destroyed but the shipyards, arms suppliers etc were not part of the government nor military and survived on civilian contracts. The blueprints for Imperial ships, guns and armour still existed and were altered in an attempt to provide an ultra-up-to-date product. The First Order pretty much equiped itself from these old suppliers.
    Only 30 years have passed between EP6 and EP7, we still remember Nazi Germany and that what 70 years ago. Of course relics and knowledge of the empire still exists.
    FO was created in the outer rim, among the unregulated parts of the galaxy, many of those involved are Imperial die-hards who were less than pleased at the mere 20-odd years the Empire existed and wanted to try again.
    Kylo Ren left his Jedi training young. It's doubtful he had much professional training after this point as Luke is the only known Lightsabre user and he hasn't had much training either.
    Snoke and Ren aren't Sith in the traditional sense, at the death of Anakin Skywalker the Sith were destroyed. Snoke was trying to create a new Sith empire.
    Luke's darker Character makes sense. One day he's a 19 year old lad who wants to leave tgd moisture farm, the next he's on an ex-Imperial pilot's record breaking ship while Alec Guinness teaches him of this force thing that Luke never knew existed. Then the Empire, the Government, tries to kill Luke and he has to watch his friend die. Later he blows up a space station. After that he's nearly eaten by a Wampa. Then he finds a green dude with a funny voice who develops his skills all so he can lose a hand and learn his dad is the evil dictator of the galaxy. Skip forward some time and he's killing Rancours and escaping the Sarlax. He goes to Endor where he's nearly eaten by Warwick Davis in a Teddy bear suit. Then he and Paddington bear fight a dirty guerrilla battle but still get captured.
    It's here we see the grey Jedi in Luke. He chops his dad's robot hands off in a fit of rage before the Emporer goes full Tesla coil on him. He then watches his dad die saving him. Seriously, it's no wonder he's a bit fucked up.

    There was a system for the force. Basically you had a higher or lower force sensitivity. If you had a high sensitivity than you can learn almost all the powers, and a little bit faster but not by the amount rey does, and most jedi had some power they could just do without training. It would be a very ruff version but they could do it. But in the end any jedi can be as strong as they strive and actually train to be.

    I very much agree with your points. I was very upset by how the film went. However, if J.J. Abrahms is able to pull off a good story in IX, I can look past the sins if VIII. If not, the sequel trilogy will be dead to me. And to anybody saying I hate women in power or spotlighting characters of different races, I don't. I love Finn, I think he is a good character, and I love Rey's new take on a Jedi. But it was all done terribly in this film. If you want to be promoting women or characters if color, do them right!

    I think what "Star Wars: the last Jedi" is for you and many Star wars fans, is what "Star Trek: Generations" was for me. Both movies are so stupid and nonsensical (GIANT plotholes), also spoil established and beloved characters (Han Solo, Luke Skywalker. Picard and so on) for no reckognizeable reason aside from justifying bad/terrible and uninspired writing.
    (Additionally, Star Trek changed in the following movies/tv series to be much more violent.)
    To me Star Trek (TOS Series/Movies and TNG, just the series) and Star Wars (The original trilogy) are still here of course, but i hate what they made with the characters after it. Which always adds a grain of salt if you re-watch it.
    What amazes me everytime, is the incompetence of movie makers and the amount of fail to understand what made the the source material so great.
    It's actually incomprehensible to me.

    I really love this video! I don't know how much i have seen it since you released it.
    I think you perfectly nailed it at 4:55. The problem is, people still give their money for this kind of dung. I don't know for how long this is going to work out for the movie companies, but as long as it is profitable, they won't change their strategy. And sadly people adapt and get condidioned way too easy to really "oppose" it in the first place. The next generation of movie goers won't know anything else than this kind of movies.

    I left the theater saying I needed to see it again to figure out what I thought about it.
    I've not seen it again to date. Although I don't agree fully, you helped elucidate my hesitancy. I'm not too concerned about sharing with my kids, either, and sharing the first six was a big deal.
    I'll need to see IX but I've avoided Solo, and will not see any others besides IX. The third movie has always been money, so there's hope something can be salvaged.
    One point that bothers me intensely, which I missed if it's already been made, is Rose stopping Finn 's sacrifice. The message is clear that one should never believe in a greater good, but only serve oneself. Selfishness is good, sacrifice is dumb. I despise Rose for doing that.
    I'm OK with the old characters being conflicted or having their story have valleys to go with the peaks, but agree the execution left much to be desired.
    And Kylo continuing to stick to the dark side is just senseless. They did everything to make him a redemptive story except redeem him. He continues to push the villain side so there's someone to fight.
    I expected TLJ to be a build up, showing Kylo and Rey growing, and tensions mounting between their political sides, leading to the big fight in IX. What we got was a confusing, rambling mess.

    It wasn't enjoyable to me...TLJ was a boring stuck in space running out of "fuel" pile of shit...

    No, The Last Jedi didn't kill it.
    THIS is when Star Wars died:

    New sub! Last Jedi failed as a Star Wars movie.

    It was a mess that undermines itself repeated. Cannot agree more.

    After Return of the Jedi either the Republic would be restored or the Empire would be undergoing a succession crisis, perhaps splitting into several factions.

    SJW's love this movie though. It destroys white male main characters, has an 'empowered' female caste, and hits so many topics important to them: mainly evil capitalism and toxic male masculinity. And to them, actual plot, consistent story, logic, etc. is secondary to their cause and thus not as important as their message. Therefore, you see them react to any criticism as "You are just a scared white male bigot, sexist, etc." as they can't separate their message from the story itself. The fact they don't even realize this is the scariest thing of all. And the biggest pushers of the SJW agenda, are the main directors and Kathleen Kennedy! The Top Dogs! Ouch.. My biggest complaint of the prequels was some plot holes and HORRIBLE DIALOGUE, but it still felt and was enjoyed as Star Wars! These two films... felt like a major budget fan fic from a left winged crowd that lost the point some where.

    After The force awakens, i knew The last jedi would suck, didnt even go to the cinema to see it, and just downloaded it to watch when " i got some spare time". Thats how bad i expected it to be, and it was even worse...:(

    Well maybe they think a lightsaber is [the same as] a metal sword which everyone can just 'pick up' in a 'few lessons' so its a laser sword no difference. We know better of course.

    They should have hired you to play Rae, teach proper sword play, and critique all the plot holes. Thanks for being superior. You are not a man baby at all.

    Even if Rogue one hadn't explained the hole on the death star it would not be a plot hole, it IS a plot contrivance. Not the same thing.

    this really makes me glad that i was never a star wars fan. i know how bad it can be to have some nostalgic good memories destroyed by a terrible follow-up movie from enough other franchises. at least this time i'm safe from that. doesn't mean that i don't pity you or any other star wars fan who has to deal with that shit though. hope you'll soon be able to forget those new films exist and be able to live a happy life pretending that the original trilogy were the only star wars films ever created. it's really the only thing you can do against such disappointment.
    also, i agree that a plot which makes sense is one of the most important things in a movie. otherwise you could just show some random battle-scenes and not even bother trying to explain anything.
    from what you're saying, i get the impression that they just wanted to do a remake without making it an actual remake. like, time progressed in that universe but all the characters just get reset to what they were at the start of the original trilogy (han solo) or get assigned completely new roles that don't really have anything to do with the character (like luke). as much as i dislike remakes, it sounds like in this case it would have been much better if they just did an actual remake instead of this.

    We have pre-Disney canon and Disney canon and I say that pre-Disney is the real canon. Even if Lucas would insert another Jar Jar in the new ones... he would still do better than Disney.
