It wasn’t good.

The score was so bad.

This movie’s robot mascot ended up with a disappointing story arc.

I didn’t really feel any emotions.

All of the characters could have died. It would have made no difference to me.

The plot/action relied heavily on a lot of worn-out tropes.

Humor was stilted.

Character/relationship developments were pretty meaningless.

Visually there’s nothing to report. A kinda cool big cloud a little bit at one point maybe. But the big clouds in Fury Road still take the cake. What can I say – I’m a cloud connoisseur.

I don’t, like, actively dislike it. I’m just so bored by it.

Could probably complain more if I had the attention span.

Would prefer to spend two hours watching a lightning storm with my fuzzy cat.

End post.

I feel the same way towards all the recent star war films. Except the last Jedi. I liked that one.

Most of the reviews I read said it doesn't really justify its existence. I'll probably go see it in the next couple of days but I'm not really in a hurry.

In response to SOH Imm a huge fan of R1 even though it sucks at first. TFA also more or less has me won over. I loved spevific aspects of TLJ but didn’t care for the execution overall.

The trailers for R1 were so good. The actual movie pales in comparison

the trailer I saw was crap. They cut dialogue from it out of thr movie (thank god).

Sometimes, with the loud vocal minority on the internet, I feel as though I was the only one who enjoyed The Last Jedi.

I have to say, The Last Jedi is the best new Star Wars film and is my number four in terms of where it ranks (the OT is in my top three, naturally).

Disliking TLJ is not a minority opinion. I'm pretty sure it's the reason Solo is underperforming so much, in fact.

It's likely a contributing factor but I doubt it's THE reason.

Me and my close friends are all huge star wars fans and aside from that dumb middle section in TLJ we really liked it. We almost completely forgot this was coming out. Our main reason is it feels too soon after the last movie, generally feels like they advertised this one less than the rest and then also the fact that generally I don't really care that much for a Solo origin story... I'm going to watch it, because it's Star Wars, but it's one of the least interesting things they could've done with a spin-off IMO.

Though I do agree, it doesn't seem to be a minority. It feels like a very 50/50 split on those who liked it and those who didn't.

The people who actually take the time to voice their opinion on the internet via random Youtube comments or forum threads and the people who actually take the time to write reviews on sites such as Rotten Tomatoes are not the majority. This is a case of a very loud few who constantly bash TLJ to such a degree that you begin to believe that either the majority hated it or it was a half in half out split on those who enjoyed the film.

The average Joe liked The Last Jedi much as the average Joe will like Solo because critical thinking is not the average Joe's forte. Just give them something fun to swig down and they're good. Unless something is truly terrible, sure, then everyone really DID hate it.

As for TLJ, I'm with the critics on this one. I believe that the die hard fans of Star Wars (who are NOT professional critics and display laughable methods of analyzing the film...not to mention forcing their baseless agenda that Disney Star Wars is an SJW montage) are just upset at something challenging their longstanding expectations of what Star Wars is.

The Last Jedi is by no means perfect, but it was exactly what the series needed--taking risks and adding well-directed, unexpected surprises. Ironically, I truly believe that ten to twenty years from now it will be this middle film that will be praised as the greatest in the sequel trilogy much like The Empire Strikes back is now commonly praised as the best of the OT (though, it was shunned back in the day).

I truly believe that. Time will tell, however. Time will tell....and history oft repeats itself.

This video pretty much describes my feelings on the debate...in a comical sense. Plenty of bias in the video, but I feel he makes solid points nonetheless.



This video, too. Not as comical, though.

As for the under-performance of Solo, I haven't personally looked into it yet to verify the financial numbers myself. Is it REALLY failing or are some over-reactive fans making self-fulfilling prophecies in their videos to justify their hate on Disney Star Wars?

It's not failing, it's just not making as much on its opening week as was predicted... Which is enough for people to jump to the conclusion that it's failing.

It's still making them lots of money:)

So I just got back from watching this...

Generally I think it's ok? Definitely one of the weakest Star Wars movies. It tries to hard to justify itself, which it fails at, going so far as... And this isn't a spoiler but I'm tagging it for anyone who might consider it one:



So yea if you go watch it that's the sort of stuff you can expect from it. Oh and this one is a spoiler but:



Lando was really great though, really felt like the same character we saw in Ep5.

Everything I try to type good or bad I end up in spoilers so I'm just going say I thought it was ok, maybe??? Not the worst thing I've ever seen. Doesn't feel like an essential part of the story in the same way Rogue One did after I'd seen it. Sets up some cool stuff for a potential sequel or other side-movie that I honestly wish they'd just done that stuff in this movie instead of setup for it :P

Oh and one big spoiler that I disliked:

A question literally no one asked and yet this movie felt the need to explain it!

I kinda liked it, but when it came to execution I

I agree with you about the early characters thing haha.

I mean I wouldn't be opposed to it if they had done it in a cooler way, but I'd still think it was completely unnecessary.

As you said the way they did it was just about the dumbest way possible.
