The last Jedi Discussion (Possible Spoilers Ahead).

Post by cantina_patron on Thu Dec 14, 2017 6:35 pm

Well, having bought my ticket on November 29th, I saw it this morning.

Has anyone else this side of the Atlantic seen it yet?

There was a nod to this meme  tongue :

Here in Ontario, it doesn't hit the theaters until tomorrow, possibly midnight tonight in some theaters. I'm not planning to see it until after Christmas. nanny

One thing I will say, having seen all the SW movies at the cinema, it still gave me a thrill to hear the music and see the opening scroll on the big screen! It took me right back to the excitement I felt as a Child!

I watched the trailers, but avoided the reviews that follwed the premier as I wanted to see it with an open mind.

In case any spoilers appear here, I would avoid checking this thread until you've seen it Chris. Wink

There’s some interesting stuff in there. It’s just a shame that, with all the money & some of the best minds in the business, they couldn’t cut a few of those brutal lines & scenes.

I was a little confused after watching it. I liked the plot but I found it difficult to engage with the characters and I found a lot of the scenes and acting really hammy. I didn't hate it but something just didn't sit right with me. Maybe I'll enjoy it more after a second viewing, as I did Rogue One.

The Rose and Finn stuff really bothered me lol primarily their lack of urgency, looking around the casino with googly eyes and talking about animal rights while the resistance were being shot to pieces, dying by the minute. Also, Ackbar should have had all of "purple hair"'s lines, and that suicide lol

I also need to see it again, as although there were some great scenes, others were rather cheesey & left me cold. One of the highlights for me was seeing the return of a certain 'little' OT character.

Now you've seen it Chris, you'll know why I questioned your use of this picture:

Just watched it for the first time this afternoon.
It reminded me a lot of the ESB Hoth battle scene & the ROTJ Emperor's thrown room battle scene.
I'm still processing what I saw, but overall, I didn't hate it as much as TFA. I probably won't go to the theater to see it again, but will probably pick it up on dvd when it comes out.
There is definitely stuff that I missed. I didn't notice Luke wasn't leaving foot prints in the salt. My wife pointed that one out to me.
