    I know, a Trump empire scares me too.
  • So I just re-watched The Force Awakens because my blu-ray has LANDED and seriously, it could have ended right when Rey and Chewy take off in the Millenium Falcon. They DID NOT need to do the whole "omg it's luke" thing at the end, we very clearly know that they're on their way to Luke. And the last panned shot from the air of Rey and Luke just standing there staring at each other was just...come on.

    I thought it was ludicrous (but in a fun way!) at the time, I can't imagine it has much replay value.

    I have the Topps Star Wars Card Trading app (because it's free?) and I keep getting cards from this movie of characters I don't remember at all. So the 2nd time through I'll be keeping my eyes open for PZ-4CO ("Peazy") and Gwellis Bagnoro (with Izby) and Korr Sella and Athgar Heece and Chancellor Villecham and Dasha Promenti and GA-97 (is that Elvis' microphone as his mouth?) and Jashco Phurus and Pru Sweevant and especially Sarco Plank (with a scaly face that looks like a giant pill bug - should I have remembered that?).

    @HMXCrisis,i think they showed Luke because they didn't want to hear, "Why didn't we even SEE Luke's face?!?!?!", even though you saw him with R2 in the flash-frames.

    weirdly, i didn't choke up when Han got it this time, but i did when Chewie returned to rescue Rey & Finn. dammit! got me again

    Always thought Yoda sounded more like Fozzie. There were points in the original trilogy where I was expecting Yoda to say "Woka Woka Woka" before Luke threw tomatoes at Yoda using the Force.

    THE LAST JEDI SPOILERS

    GET CLEAR NOW, SPOILERS INCOMING

    I really, really like how they handled the reveal for Rey's parents. Fans obsessing over her lineage really bugged me, and with all the talk of "family" in interviews, I was really worried she'd just be another one tied back to the existing universe.

    The non-reveal, that her parents weren't anyone, was such a fantastic reversal of Empire, where Luke (who we thought was no one) was the son of the most powerful* man in the galaxy, and you had the nice parallel of Ben telling her to search her feelings.

    *Figure of speech, Palpatine defenders

    Along with a bunch of other amazing twists in the movie, this is quickly becoming my favorite Star Wars movie thus far. Very original!

    I just can’t understand the audience score of the movie though... 56%? What movie were they watching??
  • Rey's parental reveal was one of the greatest moments of the cinematic franchise to date.

    That it's nearly impossible to continue the Skywalker saga with the only two Skywalkers still alive in-universe being played by a villain or sadly passed makes me feel like this trilogy will be the last to actually feel like Star Wars as I know it, even though I loved a lot of the EU stuff that never exclusively dealt with the Skywalker family. But that last shot of the kid Force-grabbing the broom and looking out at the sky was a nice, poetic way of demonstrating that history repeats itself.

    I just can’t understand the audience score of the movie though... 56%? What movie were they watching??

    As far as I understand, a lot of the RT commenters were day-one posters who created accounts specifically to thumbs-down the movie. In other words, most likely a campaign.

    Not that I think anyone cares. Second largest opening ever (plus hitting the century mark on Friday, which granted included Thursday but pretty much all of these numbers nowadays do) suggests that it'll have some legs to it.
  • Also, while I love Yoda, I think Obi-Wan would have been a better choice to show up, though how they would age Ewan Macgregor to look like Sir Alec is a bit beyond me. I guess Luke spent more time learning from Yoda, though.
  • What, you couldn't start a new thread? I subscribed to this one years ago, after I saw Episode VII.
    Now I know: this thread is no longer safe for me! Not until I see the new one!

    Yoda was the obvious choice. Not just for the fact that he did teach Luke how to be a Jedi, but also because of his far superior intelligence when it comes to the force and Jedi order. There were actually a few references to the clone wars during the island scenes that were absolutely amazing. Just another reason why it made sense for Yoda to be there.
  • Considering the WWII inspiration for the space battles. the scene at the beginning with the bombers in formation being escorted by fighters was pretty cool. Doors opening, showing the bombs stored while they fly over the objective (literally a Dreadnought ); it's what you would expect of a WWII movie but guess what, they're in SPACE.


    To give an opinion: Liked it more than episode VII
