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
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.

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.
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.
