Laura Dern reminded me of Sarah Champion which annoyed me a bit.

I love how those red knights put up a good fight. I was legitimately terrified the entire time, didn't feel like your typical disposable hoard of henchmen.

so star wars nerds all over the internet are genuinely angry and upset that rey's parents are nobodies and snoke is (probably) no one special either. those are literally the best possible outcomes for those 'mysteries', I was so relieved. I can't imagine how lame it would be if rey or snoke were related to the skywalkers/obiwan/palpatine

I've seen 'betrayal to the OT' thrown around and speculations that rian johnson secretly hates star wars. I hate nerds so much

Then again, I thought the salt thing was more an assistant-director cameo gag than any sort of exposition, but apparently that was just a coincidence of names.

Well, the guy next to the "Salt!" guy is Gareth Edwards.

Who was kinda relegated to AD on his own film.

And the character on his other side was named Frendo Pee, so who knows what they were going for with that scene!

Loved the movie, and good to see that most of the regulars from the Star Wars thread are also on board.

Loved the shoulder wipe. Thought both Sabre battles were better than the TFA ones.

Loved what they did with the Rey parents reveal, though I’m still not sure what was the point of Luke’s lightsaber “calling out” to Rey. I’m guessing it has to do with Rey being strong with the force and the Sabre having lots of Force reaidue since it was used by two Skywalkers?

yeah i can understand why people don't like this, but that gesture works just as well outside of the current cultural context so i think it's believable as a cool badass move in that universe

The transition from getting used to PTSD Vet Luke to Jesus Luke was awesome.

I demanded Jedi Master Luke in combat and I got it. Much more like I imagined the Jedi in their prime than what we got in the PT.

And his little staff fight with Rey was great.

I couldn't tell if he used the Force to stop himself from falling on the stone steps. That's what I presumed from the focus on his hands.

This is supposed to be blue milk, right?

Can't believe people didn't enjoy that scene. Hamill's expression was outstanding.

I think the one thing that irked me and I don't think it was mentioned was how cool Leia was about Luke going out to murder her son.

The biggest thing that irked me was the lack of thrust or drive that the overall narrative had. Like that was the lamest possible "chase" and it took up, what, 2/3rds of the movie? Aside from that there were a few minor quibbles mostly to do with the script. And I liked the idea of seeing Leia use the force to save herself but the execution could have been less hokey. As others have said, Laura Dern and Canto Bight were wasted. That entire section could have been excised and really the only thing you lose is Rose giving some expository character development, and I guess Benicio, who I liked.

Everything else was pretty good. I dug Snoke getting the axe unexpectedly and the ensuing throne room scene. I gobbled up the cheap Porg jokes, and would have been fine with more Porg action, especially on the Falcon with Chewie. Looking forward to seeing it again.

Yeah, also it's a little hard to believe that all the Rey\Luke stuff is contemporaneous with it. The movie def has big narrative flaws, but the good stuff was good enough for me basically to forget about them. idk, that might chage with future viewings.
