Okay, but honestly, what even IS the First Order?

Do they have any plans to rule? Any sort of political system or ways of governing? How did The First Order rise to power so quickly? It's been 30 years (give or take) since The Empire fell? How did The First Order take over everything?

When the Empire fell, did the 'rebels' not establish some sort of republic? How did it fall apart so quickly?

The thing I'm wondering, since the very beginning of the movie is... why is it the resistance that is now all but destroyed? When we last left this story in TFA the resistance had just blown the first order to hell. If anything, its the first order who should be in disarray. Also, at the end of the TFA, the resistance still had a large base and a large army... and suddenly all of that is gone, the resistance now has 3 ships left, and the first order is more powerful than ever, with absolutely no explanation of how everything got flipped around like that.

It's almost like the First Order and Rebellion are just in a small tribal feud and most of the galaxy couldn't care less.

One of the small details I liked was when Rey was on the island underneath the Falcon and she smiles and reaches her hand out to feel the rain. Reminded me of how little time had passed since TFA. She’s still so new to all of this and that might have been the first time she ever saw or felt rain.

I left the theater Saturday heartbroken after having been extremely excited beforehand to see this film. I get it that Rian Johnson was trying to take the franchise in a new direction, but for me who was more or less happy with the Star Wars universe pre-TLJ, this movie felt like a slap in the face. While I have many issues with the film, there are two I want to highlight.

First, the humor was excessive and over-the-top. It felt out of place and offputting and never allowed me to settle into the film. There were a multitiude of moments where I felt I was watching Guardians of the Galaxy or some other MCU movie. Like clockwork, I could expect a joke to come on screen every 2-3 minutes. I understand that Star Wars can be goofy at times and that the OT had its fair share of silly humor, but TLJ takes it to an extreme level. In this regard, the opening scene has me wondering why Hux is even a character. I think TFA had the perfect balance of comedy and wish this film had followed its lead.

Second, the direction that they take Luke in feels like a betrayal of his character. RoTJ ends with Luke saving his father after having always believed he could be redeemed. TLJ expects me to believe that Luke was willing to kill his own nephew (even if only for a second) after having only felt Kylo harbor dark side inclinations in his dreams. Seriously? Additionally, this happened when Kylo was still a kid under Luke's tutelage and before he had even done anything evil. It's completely out of place with everything we've come to know about who Luke Skywalker is.

There's more (the useless side-plot with Finn and Rose, the complete disregard for any of the questions and mysteries that TFA set up, the fact that in under a week Rey has somehow managed to become the most powerful Jedi in existence), but I'll leave it at that. It kills me that I no longer care about these characters or have a desire to know what happens next. For those who liked the film, I'm really, genuinely glad you did. I'm actually quite jealous.

EDIT: Grammar

Finn and Poe after the movie ends

Finn: "Hey, so, how did you guys get away from the First Order? I thought we had a whole plan about getting a codebreaker and disabling their tracking so we could jump to lightspeed."

Poe: "Oh, Admiral Holdo put as all on cloaked transport ships, it was fine."

Finn: "...Then why didn't we do that in the first place?"

Poe: "Sorry?"

Finn: "I mean, why didn't we just take the apparently cloaked transport shuttles down to Crait and not worry about breaking their tracking so we could jump to lightspeed? Why did Rose and I have to go all the way to the casino planet? Couldn't that have all been avoided if we acted on the transport shuttle thing straight away?"

Poe: "I don't know, Holdo never told us the plan. In fact, I ended up staging a mutiny because of the lack of clarity on our course of action."

Finn: "Oh. Should you be in trouble for that?"

Poe: "Eh, I learned a valuable lesson I think, it's fine."

People thought that silence was a technical glitch? I thought it added to the scene, giving an sense of awe just to have pure silence and only the visuals carry the weight of that scene. My jaw was on the floor during that. It never crossed my mind that it could be a "technical glitch."

Leia flying was the strangest thing I think I've seen in Star Wars. She was like a Mary Poppins type Witch gliding through outer space.

That was so weird. The CGI looked cheap even though the production values were obviously out of this world.

I really don't know how to fully judge this on just one viewing. All I'll say is that Yoda may have provided the most beautiful piece of dialogue in the saga:

"We are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters."

I feel like if Leia was the one to light-speed into Snoke's ship, that would be such a better role for her in the movie.

Regardless of who died for that cause, that scene was incredible.

Also, when the tree was on fire, it created the shape of the rebellion symbol. "We are the spark of the fire that will bring the first order down"

And I swear on my life, that orphan kid used the force to grab the broom. All of my friends say I'm high, but I saw it.

Edit: thanks for the support everyone 😂 . My friend just texted me an apology

When Kylo first lightsabered him I thought he was gonna die Obi-Wan style, but the force projection thing absolutely blew me away.

They foreshadow the ghost thing by Luke not leaving footprints in the red sand while fighting. Subtle hint something was up.

Also the fact that he somehow appeared on the planet with no transportation means and got into those caves with no entrance. And wasn't he using his old light-saber which was destroyed moments before?

Edit: okay enough people have reminded me about the sunken x wing they showed thanks

Tbh I thought he was going to take his old x-wing there Empires style. I thought for a second that they were forshadowing that when Ray saw it in the water.

247 points · 9 months ago

Me too. I thought that as well when he came back to the cave, that "oh, so he did pull out the x-wing from the water! Nice!" Good way to throw us off. And the x-wing serves a purpose as well, as an answer to how he got to The Island (since we don't see any ships there).

Yep, and he has the old haircut from the last time Ben saw him. I feel like there is a ton more to unpack in this whole movie the second time around.

I missed the no footprints but did catch the darker hair and beard.

And did everyone else catch the Jedi books in the compartment where Finn got the blanket for Rose right near the end?

Well, there's nothing in that tree that young Rey doesn't already posses.

Wise, you are. Catch Master Yoda's play on words I did not.

Am I the only who found weird the location of Phasma and the troopers after the interrupted execution? She's like across the hall from Finn and Rose when she was right by them before the ship gets cut. I also was disappointed by the fighting scene between Phasma and Finn.

Luke told rey after the first lesson: " you went to the dark side, you didn't even hesitate", and luke walked away angry and afraid...

and they never brought it up again and continued with the lessons.

At least in Emprie yoda warned luke that if he went to save his friends, he might lose to vader, and by lose he meant join the dark side.

I’m VERY interested to see how public reactions to this film progresses this weekend, in the coming months, and then further into the future. Given the large discrepancy between critics and audience that I’m expecting just from everyone’s reactions up through tonight, I think we can all agree this is certainly a divisive film, but will opinions start to shift as the immediate hype or disappointment tempers itself over time?

Don't get me wrong, Rey and Kylo fucking up all those dudes (knights of Ren??) was dope. But I'm really hoping they're saving a truly epic lightsaber duel for Episode IX
