It came out yesterday here.... Iím confused, I mean I liked it but iíve seen certain things... iím a bit traumatized. But thatís something only people with ďabove averageĒ knowledge about SW can probably notice. All of my friends who just watched the movies and nothing else didnít get upset and really enjoyed the movie

Sticks to formula: "whinge whinge it's just the same as the OT"

Deviates from formula: "whinge whinge *autistic screeching*

The movie was fine, with some excellent twists.

I don't find the portrayal of Luke to be that bad. He's obviously broken and he really needs an anonymous kick up the ass to actually get into his right state of mind.

Went in with very low expectations and was pleasantly suprised. It was definitely better than TFA. I actually thought they did a good job with Luke and that was my biggest worry coming into it.

Though not without flaws, it was definitely better than I thought it would be.

It was alright. Had some great moments but not a fan with what they did with Luke. It's certainly nowhere near as bad as TPM. And at least it was fresh and surprising unlike TFA.

Was 10/10. Honestly no major complaints. What a ride!

I gotta say, I am really looking forward to Rian's SW trilogy now. I had some major gripes with this film, but that was mainly because of what JJ set up in TFA and how Rian treated the original characters. TLJ took some massive risks and it treated the force in the best way since ESB. I think he could create a very entertaining trilogy about ancient Jedi and I pray that is what we are getting.

With all that said, I can't say I'm too excited for Ep 9.

I don't see how you can blame JJ for anything that happened in this film aside from where they found Luke. Rian had free reign, and not a single plotline that was in TFA was resolved in this one aside from who Rey's parents are.

Which was my biggest problem with the film. The Luke/Rey story line was compelling but completely OOC. I can also blame JJ for resetting the galaxy to ANH, and I do.

It's gotta be a 10/10 then. It's not as if on every other 1-10 scale a decent movie would rate a 5 or 6. Lmao.

The first half was an ESB rehash in disguise. The second half was unique. Luke is a both a loser and a godlike badass (great homage to Dark Empire and EU Grandmaster Luke. Definitely the strongest Force user in Canon. Loved it). Leia was awesome. Snoke was a chump. Rey was an even bigger Mary Sue. Rose is the dumbest character ever. Finn was bland. Poe and Kylo were cool this time around though.

All in all, better than TFA. It had a chance to be a solid 7/10, but then they ruined it with one scene. I'd say maybe 4/10 in the end. Tied with AotC as the second worst Star Wars movie imo.
I agree for the most part, Az. But how is Luke the strongest Force user in canon? He did almost nothing impressive, and the one feat he does have isn't exactly super impressive.

Alright so I'm back from it...it was as I expected, it was decent, I felt some stuff dragged on a little too long, some scenes were nice and I liked the various animals. Some stuff though, was really...I don't wanna say I didn't like but I didn't hate either.

No wonder Star Wars has become shit when supposed fans say there was nothing wrong with Luke's characterization. Dude goes from someone, who fights to redeem his father (who is literally space Hitler) to the end to a guy willing to assassinate his nephew in his sleep because he sensed some darkness in him.

You people will eat anything up as long as it has the Star Wars brand.

Never said anything about Luke's character, but if you must know I really didn't like it. A far cry from his Legends counterpart and I knew I was gonna leave with a sour taste in my mouth.

Also I don't really much like all of the new Star Wars stuff either.

Lukes characterization was awful. Episode 6 Luke was a better Jedi Master than Post episode 6 Luke. He went from being able to see the good in one of the most powerful Dark Lords of the Sith that he has every right to hate, to giving in to a gut feeling that he should kill his nephew that hasn't done anything yet and try and curb the growing darkness he sensed. That's horrible writing.
