Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi

zmajuga I was surprised but I really enjoyed Force Awakened, more than 1 2 and 3 combined with the only in that group that I liked being the third one. I have avoided everything about it though, I want it all to be a surprise.

If ShiftySatchmo would stop being such a scruffy lookin’ nurf hurder, I could figure out when we’re going to see it together…

I’m a bit of a sourpuss about this whole Star Wars JJ thing. I plan on just reading the spoilers/summary when it comes out and eventually watching it on the bigscreen… In my living room, when it comes out on bluray. I really did not enjoy Force Awakens in almost every way so I’m not making a show of this one. But I’m of course still interested and curious where its going to go.

schlitty I am not a JJ fan myself but did like Force Awakens. I think he has destroyed Star Trek though.

…and after watching a movie last night (no spoilers here) the only thing I can say: “Meeeh, Disney.” :pensive_face:

We can expect 137 movies in this franchise, and more JJ.

zmajuga You are the first bad reply I have heard about it, but I shall find out for myself tonight.

I really wanted to like it but was disappointed. I was very tired and maybe that was a part of it but as a whole I did not like it. Very disappointing because I really did like The Force Awakens and I had high hopes for this one. Not as bad as 1 and 2 but I would put Revenge of the Sith ahead of it. Who knows, maybe it was because of how tired I am.

Also I feel if they are going to do more movies then get your own fucking ideas and stop using ideas from 4,5&6 with subtle twists. I mean there is paying homage and then there is simply being lazy and I think they were VERY lazy with this one and should have been more creative.

Not really any positive things being said here about episode VIII but I enjoyed it. A little long but it kept me entertained the entire time. Better than episode VII in my opinion since I felt like that movie was a complete copy of episode IV.

I feel balance. Or neutral. I am speechless. I need to sleep and think this through. Not what I expected…and not what I wanted to see. Is it good or bad? This is a legit grey jedi situation. Why not both?

sir_diealot Maybe I am a heretic, but my favourite SW movie is Revenge of the Sith next to Empire strikes back. This was nothing compared to those two. Half the cast is created just so they can sell cute Disney figures after every movie. No backstory, no reason, no character building during 4 hours.

After SW VII I did not want to rant because secretly I hoped they are going to make this work and all the characters. But after today I can say this is a fcuking chaos. A comedy really. A bad action comedy like all Marvel movies. Because dropping a hilariously bad joke during a massacre can hide any flaws in movies nowadays. The joke is this is not worse than Force Awakens. The feeling as a Star Wars fan to see all breaking down and now realize this trilogy will hardly be better than the prequels is painful. Now I really need to sleep, maybe tomorrow I will say some positive :smiley: Or I stay with my books and imagination.

Ok, after thinking about it in the bed, I think it is not that bad. But still, I can name waaay more negative, stupid thing in movie than positive. Still, it is not bad, but not good. Very different. Very hard to write about it without spoilers, so I think I open another discussion with spoilers.

My final SW ratings list after this:

  1. Empire Strikes Back
  2. Revenge of the Sith
  3. New Hope
  4. Phantom Menace
  5. Rogue One
  6. The Last Jedi
  7. Return of the Jedi
  8. Force Awakens
  9. Attack of the Clones

Return of the Jedi
Revenge of the Sith
The Force Awakens
any order you want for the others, I did not like them at all.

One can only hope. I hate the new trilogy.

It’s still gonna be made by Disney. And whatever Disney makes, it’s shit. So meh…

Disney has gotta get their return on their investment ten fold. There’s gonna be new Star Wars shit every year or two for the rest of our lives.

Lol that is such a BS rumor it’s not even funny. You seriously think Disney spent a crapload of money on a ride themed after the new trilogy just to scrap it all? They care about money, not story. If anything they’ll just make an entire new thread set later or something.

The fun part is that they have the entire expanded universe to pull from that has nothing to do with the original movies.
