I've read that a few people watched the movie again and liked it better the second time and some not long after watching it thought better of it.

I liked the interjection of humor, however I didn't feel the same roller-coaster feeling i felt the first time around.

Really good article about how misunderstood The Last Jedi is. Not sure I agree with it all, but it makes some good points.

https://hype.my/2017/149941/star-war...jedi-analysis/

Another article, this one attempts to explain the "backlash" against the film by fans.

I'm thinking that it wasn't what some people were expecting so they didn't like what they got.

Well iīll be watching it tonite with kiddo iīve read some non spoilery reviews and a casual mention of it on twitter cause i read some of low score reviews on rotten tomatoes and they look like they are being brigaded, got some random asshole on my mentions. It must be really good if the trolls are screaming about women and SJWs.

Given that you’re reading this online, chances are you’ve also read about The Last Jedi being divisive. Many, many fans are angry at the film for trying to do something new with their beloved Star Wars franchise. Some feel powerless. Others take their gripes to the petition website Change.org.

While we at io9 usually refuse to cover fan-made, online petitions, because they will never, ever, ever accomplish anything, these were just so irate and ludicrous we had to share them with you.

I just want to say, thanks for putting stuff in spoilers for those of us who still have not seen it yet. I have had two pretty huge surprises exposed to me IN THE HEADLINES of online articles.

My wife saw it opening weekend. I did not think we would be able to get tickets so just stayed home (turns out she got in). This weekend I doubt I will have time for going to it. That means my first viewing will probably be next week.

Yes, given all the hype and my prior experiences with big movies like that I just assumed opening weekend had been sold out for weeks. Fandango was showing some showings greyed out and others not, but I just assumed it was a mistake and at some point in buying the tickets it would just refuse to sell them to me (especially since it was talking about reserved seats and usually wanted me to go to a theatre off in the boonies of Maryland).

My guess is leaks were coming out and some people did not like them? Then again, that never happens ... people that will see a movie opening weekend are the types who will see it no matter what and made their go/no go decision years ago.

Not quite spoilers but I'll be conservative about it.



That aside, it was pretty epic and no regrets seeing it.

Saw it Christmas Day with my stepmum. She had seen The Force Awakens with my Dad. TLJ was good, not great but not as bad as I feared.
ranty spoilers?


I ended up with 7 packs of the Topps trading cards and got a complete set of all 8. That said, I do have codes for online use to get a set if someone wants them. PM me here as they are one use codes it seems.

Why is no one mentioning the cross universe tie in? Maz Kanata's rocket pack. If you watch closely during her union dispute teleconference, that pack is actually from another Disney movie, The Rocketeer.

Parallel technical evolution. It's why passenger airplanes from Boeing and Airbus look almost the same. Closer to rocket packs, rockets from almost every country on Earth look very similar.

Or it could be someone found it in the prop warehouse, and didn't recognize where it had been used before.

Given the character is CGI, I think it is more of a easter egg snuck in.
