Absolutely terrible. Can't believe what they have done to this once so beloved franchise. Awful story telling, countless plot-holes and cringe-worthy dialogue. The worst saga entry by far. Johnson is an atrocious film-maker and should never be involved in any motion picture ever again.
Star Wars 1977 - 2017 R.I.P.

TLJ throws forty years’ worth of fandom onto the pavement like the butt-end of a cigarette and then stomps on it.
This movie is absolutely fantastic! I know, some people absolutely hate this film, but in my opinion, it’s one of the best Star Wars movies out there. The expansive story, dynamic, relatable characters, vibrant environments, and great score, really shapes this film for what it is: an exciting thrill ride for fans of any ages.
One of the worst
Why in the world does this have a 91% on Rotten tomatoes?? Should be around a 40% rotten or worse at least. Shows how out of touch the critics are for sure! Ok to make this work...Take out the entire gambling scene and story and everything with Rose....Take out the milking cows and super Leia.....take out the lame way Snok died and the turtle battle in space where one turtle spaceship runs away from another??? Why where the tie-fighters and Bombers not attacking again???? Huh ?? Take out the Luke vanishing crap. We waitied a whole movie for him and he shows up super grumpy trying to be Yoda or something and then force projects and vanishes...The whole escape could have been done sooo much better and leave Luke allive for gods sake. You dont have to kill off our favorite characters one movie at a time. I did love the red salt world. That was cool...... What you left with I am not sure... Make the battle on the Salt world at least as long as the stupid Casino pointless side quest thing...
A Return To Form.
“Luke, when gone am I, the last of the Jedi you will be.” - Master Yoda to Luke Skywalker, Return of the Jedi. (1983)
With every re-watch, this film becomes better and better. It both alludes to the filmmaking responsible for George Lucas’ visionary original Star Wars film while also expanding the Star Wars mythos and creativity, even if it burns diehard fans in the process.
The battle for both the past and future of Star Wars becomes meta with Kylo and Rey both reaching for the lightsaber that started it all, significant of both of their identities, the franchise, and the fans and it is literally split into different pieces. Such became the legacy of the film itself so far.
Star Wars the last Jedi
It’s not good
[Minor spoilers below]No better than the Episode VII. If anything, The Force Awakens was better.
The Star Wars sequels have ruined the Star Wars franchise.
The sequels don't go together well with the original six films.
Why aren't there any negative reviews for not drawing from the Expanded Universe? The films should have drawn part from the Expanded Universe, but still have some things different. Species and planets should have been drawn, along with ships like the Eclipse star destroyer.
Even George Lucas is disappointed with the sequels.
This film isn't quite a rehash of an older film like Episode VII is though.
Episode VI shows a happy ending. The Republic was going to be rebuilt and the Jedi were going to be restored. The people who are old now, but grew up watching the original films felt happy at the ending of Episode VI, but then must be shocked that it turns out to not be so happy in the sequels. Luke's Jedi are destroyed, no survivors other than Luke. Wait, "Took a handful with him"... did some of Luke's Jedi get taken with Kylo Ren to become some of the Knights of Ren?
However, Luke said the Jedi must end because the legacy of the Jedi is failure. Anakin may be right that he was superior to the Jedi. Rey will make a new order, not to be called the Jedi. Maybe she will do something similar to what Darth Bane did. But, likely it won't have just two Jedi at a time. Maybe five for now? It would be like 75% light, 25% dark.
Why is Yoda a puppet again? He was much better as CGI in Episodes II and III.
The events in the sequels are as if the events of films I, II, and III never happened.
Why doesn't a Resistance member say to Hux "You're evil! cruel! Just plain mean!"?
I'm upset by the anger provoking scenes, such as the Canto Bight Police arrest. I hope Jedi mind tricks work on the police. I hope a Jedi later slaughters the police with a lightsaber.
Another anger provoking scene is the arrest by Hux and Phasma.
Why don't Finn and Rose curse Hux? Why don't Finn and Rose insult Hux?
Worse about the film than the destruction of the Jedi... Despite the Death Star being destroyed in Episode VI destroying a large amount of the empire. Now in Episode VIII, the Resistance is more down than the Rebellion ever was. The galaxy has lost all its hope, and the First Order had a chance of winning.
We won't have Episode X. Instead, I hope we have a live action TV series about Rey, Temiri Blagg, other characters like maybe Finn, and the Republic, chronologically after Episode IX.
I'd like the six films to be remade with brand new actors, and have only a few story differences. No midichlorians or Jar-Jar for example. Let's not use sleek actors like the 2009 film Star Trek did. Maybe use much of the same music. Then, since we will have younger actors, the sequels could be in 25 ABY rather than 34 ABY.
Hollywood, stop thinking about just money and start thinking about quality and greatness! Start thinking about the reviews your movies get! Yes, you can still make money, because money is needed to make great movies. But money should be secondary to quality.
It's better to make great movies and get little money for them than it is to make bad movies and get tons of money from them!
Let's get some non-Hollywood movies.
Somone Lied to you
By Whubba Lubba dub dub
If somone told you that this was a happy tale somebody lied this film is not for the faint of heart someone ruined Star wars and I don't know who to blame the mysteries that weren't solved in the first film got thrown down the rabbit hole. You won't get any answers to many questions you had to the first film go watch it on netflix if you want to know what happens thats what I did.
It’s pretty good but I don’t know it just doesn’t have that great of a story. But so exited for December 2019 when episode 9 comes out.
By Buck Lightning/ MHOG Podcast
This is a mess of a story made by people who don't get Star Wars in the slightest. The writer/director claimed he wanted to defy expectations, which he did... if you expected this movie to be good.
