They could have done a Luke who was still positive but not cliche like in the OT.

Who the fuck cares? Are people so insecure they desperately need validation from someone else for their perspective on a film?

It's interesting to see Hamill's input but it ends there. Form your own goddamn opinions and stop trying to use Hamill's apparent partial displeasure of Luke's direction as "evidence" that TLJ is bad. All I've seen is cookie-cutter rehashed criticisms from reddit comments, FB posts, and God knows where else. Boring, boring, boring.

It's butthurt fans wanting this film to desperately fail because their feelings are hurt. Nothing more.

Firstly, this does nothing to address the abysmal critiquing I've seen toward TLJ (close to a tu quoque here, basically) and honestly? I haven't seen many terrible arguments defending the film. Most of the people defending it are either correcting legitimate errors in criticisms [SPOILER - highlight to read]: (like that Luke was trying to kill Kylo) or explaining their perspective on why certain aspects of the film function greatly and serve to build a solid film with as much of a unique identity as it can have in an already established universe.

However, I have seen some awful defending, like I've seen awful criticisms. It's just I've seen one way more consistently than the other.

The point is the intent. Vader never intended to kill his wife. She died because she's an emotional weakling. Lost the will to live. Kylo is far more evil than the Jedi turning Darth Vader.

Luke turned him. How did Han fare when he tried to turn Ben ?

Still not sure why people consider The Force Awakens better. From what I saw, TLJ actually contributed something new to the lore, had vastly better villains, more potentially iconic moments, better dialogue, cooler lightsaber fights, better action sequences, and a performance/ character arc from Mark Hamil/Luke that TFA lacked.

What exactly did TFA exceed TLJ in?

It’s imitation prowess.

And they failed. The audience hates the movie and it has a bigger BO dropoff than BvS and the toy sales are underperforming. All the good will they generated with TFA is gone now. The Han Solo movie looks like a train wreck too, so by the time IX rolls around people will be suffering from Star Wars fatigue. Turns out purposefully alienating your core fanbase for a group of people who don't watch Star Wars is not a good business strategy.



"Pulling off the three-peat is Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which brought in $52.4 million in its third weekend to raise its domestic total to $517.1 million. Initially (especially after the 69 percent second weekend drop), there was some concern Episode VIII would underwhelm (relatively speaking) commercially, but those concerns are hardly warranted. The Last Jedi has quickly become the highest-grossing film of 2017 in the United States and the latest member of the $1 billion club. This marks the third consecutive time a Star Wars movie has crossed that plateau globally, as the revived franchise has earned back the $4 billion Disney spent on Lucasfilm just in ticket sales alone. With The Last Jedi topping fellow Mouse House blockbuster Beauty and the Beast, it has now been three straight years the Star Wars series has won the #1 spot on the yearly box office chart."

I told you so, loser. Reality is truly great at times and your misery and emotional pain being the cherry on top of my Star Wars sundae.

The villains were essentially the same though? Plus there wasn't really an actual lightsaber fight, I mean you can stretch it to Kylo vs Luke if you really want but it didn't really seem like one.
