    I finally just watched The Last Jedi. I've been avoiding these videos forever!!!
    But I legit thought Rose was going to be a spy! I thought this was the exact story line they were going for. Until it was obvious it wasnt.
    I also thought it was super weird to crash their ships to close to the enemy with the canon... how it would have been more likely for her to die from being dragged that far with her injuries.
    I think they just made a mistake. Wanting Fin to be selfless and brave, but realizing he would die, and they were like "oops!"
    I didnt love Rose's character, or acting, but I was shocked watching the movie and seeing what people where so vocally abusive towards her for.

    JJ could probably put something like this into the 9th movie and that might, MIGHT, redeem Rose and some of her choices

    Remove her and have Finn help Po. Finn dies like a hero at the end. The rebellion is saved by Luke and Rey at the end and they flee with the spirit of hope and then Finn becomes a Martyr for the rebellion. Finn is a force ghost we see at the end off the next movie

    Well played. Like the way the prequels are more nuanced if you pretend Amidala and Obi Wan have a secret relationship.

    Really liked the change and video, just wanted to voice my own minor change I would give to it, when Rose stops Fin she just bumps him out of the way, both craft still functioning, it is here that Fin asks why she is doing this as she goes towers the cannon, Fin is able to just barely fly back, Rose ether momentarily or not at all stops the cannon and she gets to die a hero

    I feel they could write her being a spy the whole time into episode 9 somehow, might have a few holes and a lack of sweet sweet foreshadowing but it could be done

    Watching this movie for the first time, I really was under the impression that there was a spy. There is a shot, after Leia gets blown out, where she is being wheeled down the hall and she drops her Rey bracelet. All we see are a persons feet while picking it up. When I saw this for the first time it immediately jumped out to me as, I dunno, foreshadowing? It seemed like it was some spy in the background, turning the gears, and picking up the life line to Rey and, to ultimately, to Luke's location. And this made sense. What was the First Order's plan in TFA? It was to find the hidden piece of the map to Luke. So seeing this moment in TLJ made it seem like we were getting ready to take the fight to Luke and Rey.
    Really surprised and bummed when I realized thats not what was happening.

    That last kiss scene was so out of place, it really hurt my opinion of the movie.

  • Sympathetic Misanthrope

    This would completely fix a lot of what was wrong with that movie. She would become a villain giving the hate validation and maybe making us like her more as a badass spy. The Lack of a good storyline for Luke is the heart of the problem.

    boi allow me to direct you to Mauler's 5 hour critique on how bad this movie was. Rose was one of the lesser offenses, save the end with the absolutely most poorly written and executed decisions ever. can't win by destroying what you hate, bull! my brothers and sisters of Phyrexia conquered and perfected the poor world of Mirrordin with hate!

  • zombieslaya3456

    I always thought that this movie could've done something really cool. Rey is seeking a place in the universe, she doesn't want to be a saviour, she wants to protect people she loves but being a Jedi to her is something she is only barely discovering. She seeks Luke for a purpose not to save the galaxy. So her pursuing the dark side to look for answers too made sense. The movie plays with themes of not sticking to one side, to kill the old ways of Jedi and Sith and Rey could've been the representation of that. I think the movie should have ended right at that part after the fight with Snoke's guards when Kylo offers Rey a chance to leave the Jedi and Sith ideologies behind and to be something else. Would've been neat to see in the next movie, maybe joining Kylo in an attempt to finally find a purpose in her life only to eventually come to terms that it wasnt right for her and to become her own master of her fate.

    The movie was crap.
    Ruined one of the most iconic characters out there, in addition to various other issues.
    The best way to fix Rose?
    Don't put her in the movie.
    In fact, get rid of the entire pointless subplot she was involved in.
    It totally ruined much of the movie, and did nothing for the plot.
    In fact, you could have easily acheived the same results by simply keeping Finn on the Raddus, helping to balance out Poe's non problems.
    Rose is easily the worst character in star wars, she single handedly nearly doomed the resistance, for no reason, and was only there to check a diversity quota box.

    My only issue with this change is that the first order isn't supposed to be nuanced, because it's essentially the Alt-Right. So if Rose sides with them the optics could be... Very bad.

    Jar Jar Binks was a better spy, Lucas should have just rolled with it. Rose on the other hand is literally the worse character in the series. Not because of the acting, not because of the actress, but because of her circumstance and the Rose Tico's script. She was written without any planning, and had her character not been in the movie, it would not have changed a thing. You could have had C-3PO fill in and it wouldnt have made a difference.

    When would Rose be revealed to be a spy, near the beginning so we would know along, or closer to the end, so it would come as a shock to the audience? Do you have an exact moment in the film in mind?

  • Danielle Ellis

    One tweak: Instead of the first order approaching Rose before she joins the Resistance, make it after she and her sister join the resistance. And She's on the fence about it until Poe gets her sister killed. Then she joins.

    Rewriting the new trilogy. I think the new trilogy should have been about fighting off the last of the remnants of the Imperial Empire rather than everything being reseted back to the old trilogy with new First Order. Luke Skywalker should have been training a new generation of Jedi in an academy, with a few Jedi going rouge and/or turned to the Dark Side and/or turning into Dark Jedi. Luke realizes he should let the Jedi end, not in a way that Ryan Johnson interpreted in The Last Jedi to stop teaching altogether, but to teach a new kind Force user. Instead of teaching just about the ways of the Jedi and the Light Side, Luke realizes that he must teach and practice with ways of both the Light and the Dark side. Just teach about the Force as a whole and that is what it means to bring balance to the Force.

    This twist definitely needs to happen in Episode IX. It would change an otherwise lame and boring character into a very interesting and complex one. Plus it would give a different light to the FO by showing that not all of them are the typical "evil" people.

    Snoke has a line about how General Hux is a general because Snoke finds it useful to have mostly idiots in upper management who couldn't oppose him even if they tried. That might be why his protege is Kylo Ren, a moody manchild whom Snoke seems ambivalent about keeping around at all.
    Of all the different ways authors have portrayed the Empire/First Order, my favorite is to portray them as a shitty workplace. Organization is poor, nobody communicates, management only takes the form of punishment or threats of punishment, there's lots of backstabbing and petty office drama, and the lower ranks are treated as disposable while the upper ones go unchallenged even when breaking their own rules (like having a VP who openly practices the banned Jedi religion.) It's relatable, it explains all their shortcomings and seemingly nonsensical decisions, and best of all it explains how so many ordinary people can think it's sensible to serve a leader who doesn't particularly try to hide his blatant supervillainy. It's a living.

    This is actually complementary to one fix I would make to TLJ, and denecessitates another. The change it helps is incorporating Mara Jade into Rey and Luke's arc, the one it erases is giving Holdo an arc about overcoming her arrogance. Mara Jade was Luke's spouse in the original Expanded Universe. Imagine if she were the one who found Anakin's lightsaber, used it to find Luke through Force shenanigans, and ended that backstory with meeting and marrying Luke. As an ex-sith, she has an understanding of both the light and dark sides of the force, so she can meaningfully further the deconstruction that TLJ really wants to be. But this doesn't mean Rey is vindicated when she turns to the dark side- In fact, Jade should be more wary, since she knows the dark side of the force very well, and Rey has still yet to prove herself as an agent of justice. This could also fix Luke's TLJ characterization- Jade finds Luke after he loses hope and becomes a shell of his former self. Jade finds Luke because of course, she loves him after all. But perhaps both their ships are broken, so they cannot leave, but must wait until a new pupil arrives, perhaps even with the old lightsaber he entrusted to Maz Tanaka. With all this in mind, Luke becomes himself again, and launches that last piece of the map across the galaxy with the force. (Since force powers are now more OP, that should be able to slide.) And now Jar Jar Abrams' shitty mystery box is filled with something meaningful. And for the cherry on top, Jade duels Rey, revealing her ex-sith status to those without EU knowledge. ("Do you know what I was meant to be before I met Luke?" *ignites red lightsaber* "His assassin.") After Rey overpowers Jade, Rey stops herself from landing a killing blow just like Luke before her, and now both Jade and Luke can be sure of her status as a symbol of hope. As for Holdo, she can now has a motive rant, befitting her status as an antagonist sided with the resistance, about how she wanted to trust Poe just like her best friend Leia still could, but not only did she know of a spy, she knew of the dreadnought incident, a bloodbath that showed Poe's recklessness. How was she supposed to trust him not to leak the plan to a potential spy? Thus, Holdo and Poe come to a mutual understanding, and the mutiny is called off. While the resistance troops are hesitant to trust Holdo at first, she vindicates their faith in her via her heroic sacrifice. And on Krayt, Poe figures out that the spy is Rose. Bam, now all three arcs are much better than before.

    I like the general idea of your change but I disagree that we need the first order's ideology, we don't even really know the ideology of the Empire. They're both just- eeeeeeeeevil, its self evident that they like making things bad and that's all we need to know is they're bad. It's a really good strategy for avoiding political allegory, or worse, falsely perceived political allegory. That said I think if Rose is, from the get-go a spy, and we lose the sister angle entirely, you have a story of two first order soldiers learning that the right thing for them to do is to join the resistance. Two distinct characters learning from each other on the way to a single story arch. Almost... Romantic?

    I kinda get annoyed by the whole "the force is yin and yang" thing people have come up with as that is not really what the force in the original trilogy (or hell, even in the prequels ) was. Don't get me wrong, you can easily draw parallels between the two, but in the star wars universe, the light side IS the force when it is balanced while the dark side is a corruptive force (The force in its natural state is akin to a tree, which the light side cares for and nourishes, helping it grow to its highest height. The dark side is akin to a parasite or rot that hinders its growth and corrupts the tree itself )

    I like beans. 17 days ago

    Rose is not even close to the only problem with The Last Jedi.
    Here’s my best attempt at a comprehensive list of all of said problems.
    -The plot was disjointed, didn’t make any sense, is riddled with plot holes, throws far too many curveballs at the audience, and is hard to follow (Mostly due to all the curveballs)
    -TLJ is FILLED with contradictions
    -Luke was utterly butchered
    -The characters were extremely poorly written, especially Rey and Kylo Ren
    -Snoke was a wasted opportunity
    -The Porgs are massively overemphasized
    -The entire thing with Huldo was an awful attempt to inject social justice and feminism into Star Wars
    -Finn is there just to please the SJWs
    -There are many plot conveniences and Deus Ex Machinas throughout the movie
    -The jokes weren’t funny
    -Rose is an obstructive character that serves the same purpose as Finn
    -Leia is a magic space fairy now
    -Luke dies of absolutely nothing, for no justifiable reason
    -The animals, which they put a gargantuan amount of effort into, don’t do anything
    -Rey is even more of a Mary Sue now
    -The writers clearly forgot how space works
    -Usage of the Force is very inconsistent, and even contradictory
    -The characters are unlikable, and can’t be related to
    And that’s all I’ve got. The Last Jedi is a disgrace, and is extremely disrespectful to the legacy of Star Wars. Even Solo isn’t as bad as The Last Jedi, and that movie takes a mountain-sized crap on the character of Han Solo. I seriously can’t BELIEVE that Legends was branded “non-canon”, just for these abominations to take its place. Screw you, Disney, for ruining one of the greatest franchises of all time.

    The cool part about movies, tv shows, and books is that you can come up with your own endings, change parts about it, do whatever, and as far as anyone is concerned, that could just be what happened to you. Who gives a shit if she wasn't a spy in the movie, if in your head, that's how you wanted the story to play out, what's stopping you?

  • Natalie Emelia Mitchell

    For me, Rose wasn't the main issue (though I would have changed a few things). It was Finn. Rose was a great, spunky character but it felt to me like Finn just repeated his arc from Episode 7: going from running away, to fighting. Yes, I've heard the argument that he comes back for a different reason in the end, but in the end, if someone can't watch the movie and cipher that out for their self, it's still way too similar. Here's the plot idea that I've been throwing around here and there since TLJ came out:
    Finn doesn't escape when the Resistance evacuates their base. He's still unconscious, and something happens: maybe the transport he's in gets shot down or something. Either way, he is captured by the First Order, but Phasma and Hux decide not to kill him, because here's the thing: they're not stupid. If they kill the Stormtrooper that broke his programming, they prove to every other Stormtrooper in the order that he is dangerous, and more importantly, that their programming can be broken. But what if they somehow are able to integrate him back into the order. They can spin it so that "Even the Deviant FN2187 eventually realized that he could not escape his programming and came back." Whether through brainwashing or through the capture of other resistance agents who will be killed if Finn does not comply, they get him back. And he is back in the ranks as a faceless stormtrooper because he has to. He has no choice.
    And then somewhere along the way he meets this cute little First Order Mechanic, Rose. The First Order picked her up off a planet where she grew up as a slave. Her sister escaped the First Order, like Finn, and joined the Resistance. She is trying to get Rose out. Finn accidentally walks in on Rose sending a transmission to her sister and Rose, thinking that Finn will turn her in, stuns him. Of course, once Finn and Rose have a chance to talk things through, they eventually realize they are on the same side and because they have no one else around them to confide in, become friends. He is even able to use her little transmitter to get information back to the Resistance through Rose's sister, who it turns out knows Poe pretty well.
    Rose tells Finn that in the time that he has not been with the First Order, he has developed a bit of a reputation among the other Troopers. He is the reason that she and her sister tried to escape. "The Stormbreaker" is what the troopers call him (I got that from someone else's fanfiction about him, but I really like it). Finn and Rose eventually meet a small group of Stormtroopers that want to escape the order, and inadvertently become their unofficial leaders (among this group is an officer dubbed DJ within the group, who proves to be a traitor later). The group contains, a couple officers, a handful of pilots, a few stormtroopers, maybe one or two special ops, some intelligence officers, and several other slave-labor mechanics like Rose. Together, the group begins to set up their own covert network within the Order. Finn is their leader, but Rose handles a lot of the organization, since Finn is very high-profile and the Order wouldn't suspect a tiny slave girl, at least not at first.
    All this time, the rest of the story has been proceeding almost exactly the same as the actual movie, just minus Finn and Rose and the Canto Byt (sp?) sequence. Rey still Force-times with Ben and all that Reylo stuff (which I LOVE), and Poe is still in contact with Finn and Rose.
    Anyway, Poe tells Finn that he's planning on taking down Holdo, and Poe tells Finn that they need to stop the hyperspace tracking or something along those lines. So Finn and Rose mobilize their small group and get to work, but just like the actual movie, they are turned in by DJ and this time, Phasma and Hux decide that defaming Finn's image didn't work, so best just make an example of them.
    And again, just like the movie, this is when Holdo rams Snoke's ship and we not only get to see Finn duel Phasma head-on, we get to see him leading his small army of "Stormbreakers" against what is left of Phasma's men. And prevailing!
    Under Finn's leadership, the group steals some First Order fighters and goes down to Crayt, where the rebels are cornered. They are able to help them somewhat, but in the end it's not enough, and Rose's sister is shot down in the fight. The remainder of the Stormbreakers retreats to the fortress and Luke has his showdown moment with Ben, Rey still has her "lifting rocks" moment,
    So these changes would have given us more insight into how the First Order works through the eyes of several members, and would have given us more chance to explore the character of Rose AND her sister. This makes Holdo's plan make sense, and specifically it makes sense that she wouldn't tell Poe or Paige (Rose's sister) because they are in direct contact with members of the First Order, and Poe and Paige would have told her that because they want Finn and Rose rescued. This completely cuts out the problem of the tracker, because we would have occasion to see it used, and Rose might even be one of the people that operate it but might not know what it does until told, so once Poe and Paige tell them that, they would be able to sabotage or disable it.
    Also, big thing, this would have fixed the scene at the end, "Not fighting what we hate but saving what we love," because these fixes above actually make it a theme of the story that oftentimes what we hate and what we love are wrapped up in the same object. Rey and Kylo have that hate-love theme already. And Poe and Paige would be unable to stop the First Order without possibly killing Finn and Rose, so that is a dilemma for them. These changes actually make way for conversations about what "we love being contained within something we hate" cropping up all over the place. The line, though it's poorly-placed, makes more sense for what the theme of the film is with these changes.
    That being said, I love your theory and it makes SO much sense with what we know about Rose!

    I also think that, with a similar theme as this, Rey should absolutely have accepted Kylo's offer to join the First Order. It's hinted at through the whole movie, and it would have had far more interesting implications with shades of gray than immediately going back to good guys vs. bad guys

    I was so mad when Rose ruined Finn's sacrifice! Finn started his story afraid and unwilling to take a stand, trying to flee from the conflict Eventually, he joins the fight and is willing to put his life on the line and sacrifice himself for a greater cause. His arc was completed and his sacrifice would have been a perfect end for the character.

    I liked The Last Jedi. I thought it had problems, but i liked it. But if it was up to me, i would remove Rose entirely from the movie. She served no purpose, other then a very likely love triangle in ep9. But i dont want that. We already got that in the og trilogy. And im one of those guys who want Finn and Rey to be tgt due to their chemistry. So this makes the Rose character completely pointless

    You did a really great job at this. :) I knew something about Rose knocking Finn off his path didn’t sit right with me when I watched it, but I could never put it into words until I saw this. So thank you for that. This would’ve made me the movie better, and would’ve made Rose more complex and compelling. I liked her character, but I feel she didn’t have a lot of background material, so your idea would’ve been a very clever way of fleshing her out.

  • BlackTearDrop

    Because of Holdo's hostility towards Poe and her general behaviour and Hux and Snoke not explicitly mentioning a hyperspace tracker, I thought Holdo was going to be a First order mole.
    It made so much sense and justified Holdo's rudness and the "pronoun game" Hux was playing with the means they were tracking the resistance.
    I thought the twist was going to be that Holdo was sabotaging the resistance aboard the Raddus- letting their ships run out of fuel- keeping people in the dark etc
    Would have been a great turn of events and made me like her character.

    But we already know what the force is. It’s a bunch of small organisms called Midichlorians that are in every single living cell.

    For me TLJ was trash it look nice and good parts but was trash but this idea would have help a bit

    Have you seen EC Henry’s video about the one line that fixes TLJ? The change he proposes is somewhat similar to yours

    if they include this in the next movie, then people might change their mind about the last jedi.

    If you watch TLJ not as a movie, but as a leftist power-fantasy, it makes a lot more sense. Who cares about characterisation, when the characters could instead be giving a monologue on the evils of capitalism? Why have fully-fleshed out villains, when having the bad guys be cliche, mustachioed megalomaniacal psychopaths feels so much closer to how modern day liberals see the right wing? Why have coherent plotpoints, when you could have a walking SJW avatar win with snark over a white male?
    Et cetera and so forth. Makes a lot more sense that way.

    dude I think you just theorized that rose was a traitor to resistance this whole time and just gave a ton of examples why this makes sense maybe even something that there are planning on revealing in the next movie!

    I actually liked the Last Jedi... except Rose. I didn't understand her purpose really. This makes a lot more sense to me.

    Damn, that would be topical as hell. Rose just wants something different; she's so unhappy with the status quo and she wants change so badly that she's lost consideration for the possibility that the future the First Order promises might be even worse. That's too real. I love it!

    you see, all those questions you ask are the root problem of the new sequel trilogy of star wars, they never gave a reason as to why the first order is a threat in the star wars universe, nor as to why holdo withheld the plans that caused so many members of the resistance to their deaths TO A REMAINING 12 MEMBERS. this movie never explains ANYTHING about the tracking nor does it even show a relationship between finn and rose. and only uses external source materials instead of actually explaining it in the movie.

    Other guy:
    “Yeah, guys, I just saw this TheXvid video, and I was thinking that maybe we try something that will have a good story and _won’t_ disappoint fans?”

    I accidentally stumble upon your channel from the weird recommendation list that youtube keeps on popping out for no reasons on my sidebar whilst playing a couple of games, then I got hooked, all of your rewrites and readjustments are clever, interesting, and makes me wish that those were things that could and should've happened in the original product... I continued on bingewatching some of your taking and iteration on the marvel and dc stuffs, and i love them
    keep up the good content, will look forward on more stuffs in the future

    The Hyperspace Tracker exists. It was mentioned during Rogue One. Kind of. Jyn Erso mentioned it while searching for the Death Star plans on Scarif.

    The only difference between the sequel trilogy and prequel trilogy is that the acting doesn’t suck. The stories are terrible.

    0:05 good? Ok good,I have seen a lot of people calling 8 just bad. I admit it has many flaws but it is still good movie. Same can’t be said for Solo as much. If I am going to compare them to other movies it would be this:
    Last Jedi->Iron Man 3(starts out great,dissapointing twists but still great)
    Solo->Jason Goes to Hell(generic or simple at best and only thing that is remembered is the easter egg at the end)

    When you put it like this it kinda makes sense that she was a spy or something. Maybe she is? Still one movie to go

    They would never make a woman a bad or evil . Because it's a movie about faminism . every female character in last Jedi is perfectly good . And the men are evil , lame ,bad .

    Oh thankyou. That was the very worst scene in the film, it's only due to how much I loved the rest of it that I even decided to watch on. Very nearly made me turn it off out of sheer confoundment. Your version makes so much more sense.

    This has been my theory for a while. The only thing I’d add is rose was also acting as a saboteur. It explains the shield inconsistencies during the space battles.
