If so, that plot sounds so familiar just like the 7th one did."

So... it's out now, what did people think?

I enjoyed it overall, but there were a few bits I didn't like so much.

Is this thread allowed to have spoilers for the movie or no? For now I'll just say I loved it. People have a lot of complaints and some are valid, but a lot are nitpicking. Overall its movies about space wizards so people can say what they want good or bad

I don't know. Maybe use spoiler tags.

Spoilers!



I also don't agree with a lot of the complaints, but I was a bit disappointed.

The complaints against Star Wars make almost no sense, because while a few are legit, most of them are just attempts to make the film seem worse than it is, because several idiots online took it as a personal insult that their years of prediction turned out to be wrong. They were too proud to admit that they were wrong, so they looked at every little thing they could and signed a petition to try and make themselves feel better about it. Several YouTube channels even tried to make it seem like everyone hated the film as much as the prequel trilogy, if not more, before enough time had passed for their to even be a consensus among fans of what they thought about it. It's all come off as pretty childish and sad and in the process people seemed to have missed what the film was mostly about, which is learning for us and the characters. People don't like to learn though, so they went the opposite direction of the film, and started crying about every little thing they got wrong. It's honestly the most childish and pathetic response to a film I think I've ever seen.

i personally really disliked this installment i just hated what the did with the character of luke and it took me out of the entire movie, on the same note it is much better than episode 1 and 2 and doesn't deserve the colossal amount of hate that i have seen it recieve.

There's good parts and bad parts to this episode. As someone who rewatches every episode, be it prequels, classic or sequels, three times over, the fairest judgment I can give is that this one was generally badly done. It's not as bad as some critics slam it to be, but it's one of the weaker movies throughout the franchise. 6/10 I'd say.

Optimistically speaking, episode IX provides a speck of hope to salvage some of the ridiculous plot twists that were dropped in VIII, but some of these twists weren't even necessary at all to begin with.

Leia flying through outer space was way too strange for my liking - this had nothing to do with theories or speculation.


I would strongly rate the Revenge of the Sith and The Force Awakens above this installment. Hoping for IX to wrap up the sequel trilogy in the most elegant way possible.

Overall I found it to be enjoyable. The one part I think does a massive disservice is

Show ( Click to Show/Hide Hidden Content )

the part Luke played in triggering Kylo Ren's betrayal. Going as far as having his light saber out is too flawed for my liking, and goes against Luke's character, especially at that time in his life and given that he is his nephew.



Unfortunately it doesn't seem like this particular trilogy added anything compelling or interesting, which is the biggest bummer (unless the last of the three does a significant 180 in which case it would be appreciated but completely clash with the other two).


I liked it though, because I like pretty much everything in this genre.
