  • Yeah I'm not reading that article. I watched the last Jedi once, and I always watch good films more than once. Here are a few films that deserve rewatching:

    Notorious
    The Empire Strikes Back
    Hot Fuzz
    Whiplash


    I will, Subby, not in this life or the next, ever rewatch that Coruscant-sized turd of a film again.
  • The mission at Canto Bight was, admittedly, wasted screentime

    Impressive find.The article managed to have no argument at all while insisting it did.

    Anyway, what's cool about TLJ is that there are about three different plots in the middle of the movie that are each on completely different time lines, yet they somehow join together simultaneously at the end.
  • August11: Yeah I'm not reading that article. I watched the last Jedi once, and I always watch good films more than once.


    I barely remember anything that happened in that movie, least of all whatever a canto bight is. And I have no desire to be reminded.
  • The Last Jedi would have been so much better if Poe had gone with Finn instead of Rose. The two actors had great chemistry in Force Awakens, and it would have been a great opportunity to get more of those two together.

    Poe is supposed to learn to be a leader in that film, tighten the plot up and have him make a tough call or two and learn to be a leader as part of all of it, and you get rid of the nonsense romance thing that went nowhere.
  • Other than padding out cinema's most boring chase sequence and more time to turn Poe into an unlikeable arse?
  • I dont remember that quest who gives it to you?
  • TLJ had it's moments, but I think it definitely is the weakest of the 9, and the entire Canto Bight sequence was just so stupid; I do chores during those scenes when I re-watch: sift.

    Like your post. You completely missed the part where it's supposed to have a point.

    With the trilogy as a whole, Rey's journey as a Jedi makes for a good star wars story. It's the whole Resistance vs. First Order plotline that is a steaming pile of thinly veiled reboot.
  • The Last Jedi lost me when there was that one scene where an iron was pretending to be a spaceship. That belonged in a Mel Brooks movie.

    The story might have been more interesting if Finn discovered that the rebels were being tracked because he was with them. There was a mention of tracking through hyperspace in Rogue One and it would have been a decent plot point if it was discovered that conscripted troopers were implanted with a chip to track them. Finn could have left the rebels to protect them and Rose could have still helped him. We could have then seen a whole side story with Captain Phasma chasing him down. Finn and Rose could have killed Phasma and their story arcs would have been complete.

    I'm not sure what to do with the rest of the movie.

    Rey's journey should have been a good story, but no one outlined it first and it's all over the place. Of all the characters they keep giving Disney+ shows, Rey needs one more than anybody. They ought to just write her name down on a piece of paper, drop it on Filoni's desk, and say "Here. You fixed the prequels with your Clone Wars cartoons. Now fix this. Please?"

    And here's a free tip you can use as a starting point, Dave. Remember how Kylo told Rey she was a big nobody, and that was easily reversed because Kylo was a gaslighting liar and a jerk? The Emperor's an even bigger jerk, so claiming she was his granddaughter can also be a load of poop. You can definitely give her a better backstory than that one.

  • No, I got the point of that mission. It was to shoehorn in a romance plot between Finn and Rose because Disney was afraid of my Foe fanfic coming to life.

    Well that sounds pointless.

    Except there wasn't any romance. Rose spends the whole time at Fhloston Paradise scolding former abducted child slave Finn about not appreciating the plight of abducted child slaves, and when she kisses him later and announces her love it comes out of absolutely nowhere.

    It sucked for the actress that they cut her almost entirely out of the next movie, but it was a lucky break for Finn. Rose was a crazy person, and if she'd caught him making eyes at Rey, she'd have boiled his space bunny.
  • The way Star Wars names things, I have to ask, is Canto Bight a person or a place?
  • EdgeRunner: Fhloston Paradise


    So is this Star Wars or  The Fifith Element?

  • This headline works either with or without the phrase "canto bight mission".

    Given the "quality" of TLJ, I'm surprised the planet wasn't named L-O swagees.
  • I fell asleep during that scene at the theater. I fell asleep during that scene when I rented it on demand at home. I managed to stay awake the third time I tried to watch it and realized why I fell asleep during the first two viewings.
  • It completely broke the (already-forced) tension of the "chase." We're going to chase each other at sublight for hours and days, but a small ship can just zip off in hyperspace and return. Yes, we could have evacuated the entire fleet using that tactic, but we're going to go drag someone else into the chase instead.

    That entire plot would have worked better if the codebreaker dude was simply imprisoned in the cell next to Finn. It should have added a total of maybe five minutes to the main story arcs instead of being a 25-minute self-contained side quest.

    It's a reference to how much Johnson's casino planet felt like a pale imitation of the Fhloston Paradise setting from Fifth Element. Though that could have just been me subconsciously wishing I was watching a better movie.
