Meh. I hope it is not as much a remake of Episode IV as Episode VII was... but we've already got wrinkled old jedi hermit/master living off the grid/on a inhospitable world being visited by the trainee who is told to meditate and focus and hey, pebbles are floating (and being stacked we hope!). I can't wait to see Rey running arond flipping with Luke on her back. Fun times. At least we've traded off snow for salt flats....

A new character has been added to Episode 8 and her name is Rose and is played by Kelly Marie Tran. She plays a maintenance worker. Apparently it's not a small background role.

Why Rose should be your new favorite Star Wars character

Hmmm AT-AT gorillas instead of normal ones, sand speeders instead of snow speeders although the description of them is pretty much interchangable, young Jedi being trained by whacko older Jedi...it all seems a tad familiar...

Yea, I'm not sure about the Planet of the AT-ATs.

I was all for the idea of a broken Jedi forced to seek redemption for past failures, but now I'm wondering if it'll all just be exposition and a whiny Luke. Instead, give me Rey's Rocky training montage and her dropping Bad Ben in a volcano before lunchtime.

Really hard to watch Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) targeting Carrie Fisher (General Leia).

To say it looks like it will play out EXACTLY like Empire Strikes Back is not an exaggeration.

Young student ignores warning of old cranky Jedi and chooses her own path only to be overwhelmed and faced with a decision to team up with her enemy offering to show her the way forward...only this time it looks like it might end with the student actually taking the enemy's hand.

Plot twist: Rey actually does take Kylo's hand...off with her lightsaber!

Both me and nephew are super hyped for it, i already got us 3D tickets for the 19th, and this will be his first proper Star Wars film experience because he now can handle the subtitles well. After all the fun we had with Thor hes now made me write down all the dates for Marvel and Star Wars films on my planner. If he would only stop bitching about the Solo film, which he has been waiting for since it was anounced.

Something vaguely Last Jedi related to watch while waiting for Last Jedi.

Also, it may be the best fucking thing on the internet this week.

The Portuguese Police tried to arrest Darth Vader last nite, sadly he managed to escape leaving some stuff behind and acording to them our galaxy remains in danger.

So I saw it. It was generally an entertaining film and better than "The Force Awakens".

Is it wrong that I just wanted to pinch Rose's cheek and be like, "You are just sooooo cute!" She is definitely my new favorite character.

So, lots of thoughts, but mostly every time I started to enjoy it, the predictable, formulaic and cutesy parts made me roll my eyes.

I have mixed feelings about this film.



There's more, surely, and a second viewing will probably help some things but not the big things.
