yea definitely thought that dude's foot was bleeding the fuck out. im glad his first instinct was to taste that shit

Luke: If you strike me down, I will (presumably) be seeing you as a force ghost

<Kylo Strikes him down>

Luke: Haha! I wasn't here all along! "See you around kid" (in person)!

<Luke dies anyways>

[–]Vaako21 812 points813 points  (5 children)

nice way to troll Kylo... haha you didnt kill me... and now I just die so you will never kill me haha... then I come back as a ghost and haunt you haha

[–]TheNumberMuncher 939 points940 points  (13 children)

[–]farzadviper 2173 points2174 points  (201 children)

That light speed jump scene. Just wow. I don't care that it might not have made a lot of sense, but literally 10/10 scene all around for me.

[–]ErshinHavok 295 points296 points  (16 children)

If you've seen Looper, I think you can look at that scene as the only moment Rian really got to inject some of his flavor into the movie.

[–]Rothgard98 1931 points1932 points  (33 children)

How did finn drag that girl across the salt flats in like 2 mins when they were "flying" in those machines for a good 5mins. How did he not get shot? I just don't understand

[–]Ahambone 1903 points1904 points  (11 children)

Admiral Ackbar deserved better.

[–]Krombopulos_Micheal 259 points260 points  (0 children)

I like how they had to reassure us that, yes, he's dead, the one we all loved.. gone.. without any pageantry whatsoever. It's fuckin' Ackbar man! Give him some space A-K's and let him go out guns ablazin!

[–]Kaylinwriter14 3321 points3322 points  (222 children)

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?

[–]d4nb 2028 points2029 points  (139 children)

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.

[–]captaincryptoshow 1586 points1587 points  (100 children)

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.

[–]white_Steve_Nash 961 points962 points  (41 children)

Seriously, they never convey why the rest of the Galaxy should even care about who wins this war.

[–]DragonNovaHD 773 points774 points  (34 children)

Yeah and they pretty much straight up say that nobody cares when multiple people receive their distress signal but nobody answers

[–]MrDadders 3202 points3203 points  (52 children)

Was 100% expecting a Lando cameo at the Casino.

[–]hmmgross 1527 points1528 points  (11 children)

Something just came to mind. Chewie was a fucking Uber the whole movie.

Poe gets half the rebellion killed and commits a mutiny

Leia and Holdo: "Ha! That crazy kid, I like him!"

[–]Eman5805 265 points266 points  (25 children)

Seems like way more than half the rebellion died, actually. Remember he got all of their bombers destroyed too.

[–]ScoopSnookems 6236 points6237 points  (86 children)

At the end, when we’re with Luke and you see the first sun, did anybody else see a speck on the sun and assume it’s something (a shuttle, a pterodactyl, anything!) coming for Luke???

[–]lilobrother 2478 points2479 points  (13 children)

I was so concentrated on the speck that I somehow fucken missed that there was two suns

[–]yerm9 1289 points1290 points  (5 children)

Yes! There was a speck. Not sure what it was but there was a speck on the sun

[–]djjaneiro 1119 points1120 points  (13 children)

Imagine the ending of TFA with Luke throwing the lightsaber over his shoulder before cutting to credits.

[–]trevdv 2113 points2114 points  (50 children)

Anyone else think Luke chucking his lightsaber behind him was pretty symbolic of what Rian did with everything J.J. set up?

[–]dfunkt_jestr 461 points462 points  (0 children)

Pretty much sums it up exactly.

[–]sgtpnkks 1010 points1011 points  (8 children)

another example of why if you are fat and in star wars you should NEVER STEP INTO THE COCKPIT OF AN X-WING

[–]MasterLawlz 4673 points4674 points  (86 children)

Kylo Ren is like space Magneto, characters keep saying they know there's good in him as he continues to murder people without hesitation lol

[–]dropkickderby 1317 points1318 points  (13 children)

He totally hesitates to kill his mom like 20 minutes into the movie.

[–]nosferatWitcher 436 points437 points  (10 children)

Even Hitler loved his mum.

[–]Krimsinx 508 points509 points  (8 children)

On an odd note Hitler actually had the Jewish doctor that treated his mom put into special SS protection after he annexed Austria, he referred to him as a "noble Jew". The doctor passed away about a month after Hitler did, he suffered from stomach cancer and passed away in the US.

[–]CuriousGoogle 2548 points2549 points  (115 children)

Why didn’t the purple hair woman collide the ship earlier? That could’ve saved a lot of rebels.

[–]canibeameme 2844 points2845 points  (53 children)

why didn't they just get some random droid to do it?

heck, why aren't all battles fought with kamikaze hyperspace droids?

[–]skurtbert 1254 points1255 points  (27 children)

To bad starships don’t have autopilot that can “keep going straight forward at current speed” ;)

Holdo looked like she got lost while on her way to the Hunger Games

[–]BrySighz 3123 points3124 points  (52 children)

Kylo steps out of the shower, wrapping a towel around his waist. "Oh, hey, Rey, how's it going. We've got to stop meeting like this."

"Funny how this only happens whenever your shirt is off..."

"Yeah, right?"

[–]Stumpledumpus 467 points468 points  (1 child)

A buddy of mine saw Kylo Ren in the shower. And he said that Kylo Ren had an 8-pack. That Kylo Ren was shredded.

[–]Scamp3D0g[🍰] 2423 points2424 points  (74 children)

If Admiral Ackbar had made the Hyperspace move rather than Holdo I would have cried my eyes out. Such a lost opportunity.

[–]Hosslium 1407 points1408 points  (8 children)

Maybe to avoid "Allahu ackbar" memes?

[–]ErshinHavok 4349 points4350 points  (69 children)

I just realized, when Luke winked at C3PO, I have a feeling that's because C could tell he wasn't really there and Luke was sayin "shh I know you know, just don't say anything"

[–]a_trane13 1718 points1719 points  (35 children)

Ahhh it seemed so weird at the time but yeah, a droid could probably tell

[–]polartrain 2926 points2927 points  (40 children)

The rebellion is now essentially a band of 12 terrorists

[–]Esstand 15.3k points15.3k points  (409 children)

The hacker guy help Finn and Rose escape

“He is a good guy”

take Rose’s amulet

“He is a douche”

gives amulet back to rose

“I know that guy wasn’t all bad”

betrayed Finn and Rose

“He must have some kind of plan”

walker starts shooting at troopers to help Finn


reveal it was a BB-8


What a ride

[–]adamtheimpaler 3962 points3963 points  (90 children)

Maybe not a GOOD guy, but a Han Solo type. Merc with a code, softer than he lets on, etc

[–]WonkaFansOnly 8738 points8739 points  (127 children)

When Rey asked Luke what the force is and Luke kind of paused and sighed, I thought for sure he was going to explain midichlorians

[–]afkstudios 3004 points3005 points  (37 children)

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.

[–]Toasty_Show 4825 points4826 points  (57 children)

Was anybody else disappointed when Rose goes "I know what that is" and then it pans to a race track and it isn't podracers

[–]AlwaysTime 1499 points1500 points  (17 children)

That said, if you translate that over to real-world sports - Nascar is racing for rednecks, while horse racing is for the wealthy bourgeois.

[–]paul193 7092 points7093 points  (117 children)

Poor Chewbacca! This film took place straight after TFA so the death of Han Solo is incredibly fresh and no one is hurting more than Chewie and he was pretty much alone the entre film getting judged by Porgs.

[–]knnl 1278 points1279 points  (11 children)

At least he finally got that hug with Leia

lol. Though I didn't read 'fuck this traitor' so much as 'this is my opportunity'

[–]_drewford[🍰] 1208 points1209 points  (16 children)

That's definitely what it was, they had power struggles when serving as peers under Snoke. Also Hux is a bit of slimy, smarmy bellend anyway.

Makes you wonder why nobody has thought of hyper drive missiles in universe.

EDIT: I get it guys. Everyone thinks it's expensive.

[–]cyberpeacock 493 points494 points  (27 children)

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

[–]jayoak4 4143 points4144 points  (35 children)

Can't believe Kylo sliced Jar Jar in half

[–]CapnSmunch 1845 points1846 points  (29 children)

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."

[–]SickBurnBro 437 points438 points  (3 children)

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?"

"If you need to see the sun to believe in it, you'll never make it through the night, or some shit. I don't know."

[–]chellynaeb 6805 points6806 points  (179 children)

Let's all take a moment to think about the dude whose only line in the movie was "mmm it's salt".

[–]danieldravot 2826 points2827 points  (89 children)

And standing next to him was Gareth Edwards, the director of Rogue One!

[–]DeadliestSin 562 points563 points  (13 children)

I thought that would lead to some kind of solution to thwart the advancing army. Nope, just a fun fact that had no impact on anything.

Unless it was shown that Luke didn't make marks in the salt and I'm an idiot and it foreshadowed for the smart people out there

[–]bigsteven34 5375 points5376 points  (306 children)

So my big question now is...does the Rebellion consist of the Falcon and the 10-12 people on it? Because that is what I took away from the ending...

I also have mixed feelings on Luke’s fate...

[–]Lean_Mean_Threonine 3979 points3980 points  (79 children)

you forgot that one street sweeper kid...he's the key to all this

[–]Moonvale 559 points560 points  (7 children)

[–]Zimyver 1074 points1075 points  (23 children)

In the last scene you see that the books are in the Millenium Falcon so it didn't really matter if the tree was burned down.

[–]Ltjenkins 362 points363 points  (4 children)

I’m assuming yoda knew too. Which is why he zapped the tree to prevent luke from going in and potentially discovering the books were gone.

[–]ThebigP 11.4k points11.4k points  (744 children)

I really dont understand why Admiral Holdo didnt tell Poe she had a plan. If she did tell him, he wouldnt have let Finn and Rose go, which ultimately led to most of the transports being blown up when the code breaker sold them out.

[–]Volhar 8103 points8104 points  (259 children)

I can't be the only person amused that after thousands of hours of speculation about just who Snoke was, he just got cut in half like he was a piece of cheese.

[–]McMew 5287 points5288 points  (22 children)

My theater lost it when that big bad space ship coming in for the landing turned out to just be a clothes iron.

[–]Cohn-Jandy 1532 points1533 points  (9 children)

Hah, I actually though, wtf, that looks just like an iron!

[–]trickman01 855 points856 points  (3 children)

I had the exact same thought process. "Well that looks like an iron, they aren't even trying anymore. Oh, that is an iron, carry on then."

[–]BartSimpWhoTheHellRU 3641 points3642 points  (113 children)

Felt like a Spaceballs joke.

[–]TreyWriter 337 points338 points  (3 children)

Or a Kasdan joke. It’s basically the Star Wars version of the coat hanger scene from Raiders.

[–]The_Conkerer 4484 points4485 points  (44 children)

Did anyone else notice that Rey had the Jedi texts in the Falcon at the end? Yoda saying “There is nothing in that tree that she does not already posses” is a super cheeky.

[–]charleyjacksson 1427 points1428 points  (22 children)

Yoda's laugh after he strikes the tree down was perfect. I wish we would've gotten that Yoda in the prequels.

[–]Firespray 268 points269 points  (6 children)

That goofy ass laugh made me so happy, Yoda was back.

[–]trialrun1 795 points796 points  (8 children)

I really like how Rian Johnson was basically low key suggesting new Pokemon throughout the whole movie.

[–]Magnetus 2670 points2671 points  (49 children)

".. worth it to destroy the city? takes off harness from space horse Now it was worth it" yeah but fuck those childslaves amirite guys?

[–]TypewriterKey 1298 points1299 points  (4 children)

All I could think during that wild escape sequence is that those kids were going to get the shit whipped out of them.

[–]Phuck_Olly 7438 points7439 points  (445 children)

That Leia "death scene" was the strangest way to fake out a fan base. Her death there actually made sense and I somewhat expected it. Instead, everyone is left sitting there going "WTF?!?!" as she just floats back to the ship.

[–]akeldama1984 3011 points3012 points  (14 children)

She was hiding under a space dumpster the whole time.

[–]PaulNY 478 points479 points  (0 children)

Now if she was in a refrigerator it would have been much easier to explain how she survived, those things can take a nuclear blast and you can just shake it off.

[–]B_lovedobservations 1005 points1006 points  (13 children)

I was like of course she has to die, she died in real life, this is her exit. But nobody was expecting he to float back into the ship. Definitely didn’t think she’d make it to the end of the movie. Very bittersweet that she died in real life and survives in the movie but Luke Skywalker dies in the movie and is still alive.

[–]Jorge_Kindred 6184 points6185 points  (141 children)

I really enjoyed Luke gazing at the two suns right before he died

Paraphrasing “You’re still staring at the horizon young Skywalker” - Yoda

[–]dirtyheads182 3724 points3725 points  (108 children)

Was there something out of focus in that scene? I thought in the middle of one of the suns there was a dark speck... like a ship in the distance? Maybe I’m crazy, but I thought I saw something like that. Anyone else?

[–]FRANCIS___BEGBIE 2456 points2457 points  (46 children)

I saw that too! I thought it was a ship. I was like “SHIT THEY’VE FOUND HIM!”

[–]Dead_Starks 627 points628 points  (5 children)

Best scene aesthetically by far, was that hyperjump crash. Holy shit, that sound. That silence. The visuals. Really great scene.

[–]ShillboBaggins1 890 points891 points  (21 children)

My theater had a sign out front that said something to the effect of: "At 1 hr, 46 min into the movie, there is an extended silence. This is a part of the movie and not a technical glitch. Please do NOT report to management."

Did people really not get that it was intentional?

[–]Ersh777 441 points442 points  (4 children)

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."

[–]1080TJ 12.6k points12.7k points  (262 children)

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."

[–]ShineeChicken 5972 points5973 points  (118 children)

And 'failure is the most courageous teacher'... that scene was very powerful

[–]Jay_Eye_MBOTH_WHY 2961 points2962 points  (108 children)

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.

"I was just doing force-ups. I did over a thousand. It's really embarrassing that you had to walk in on me sculpting my guns."

[–]LastCohenBro 1401 points1402 points  (6 children)

I heard Kylo Ren is totally shredded and has an 8 pack.

I’m glad I got to see Luke Skywalker drink titty milk.

[–]craig_hoxton 3355 points3356 points  (13 children)

Now that's a sentence I thought I'd never read in my life.

[–]mrpoopybutthole551 4211 points4212 points  (256 children)

So did they just say fuck the knights of ren?

[–]MyCassadaga 3395 points3396 points  (61 children)

We were so fucking close to a new “NOW THIS IS POD RACING” meme at that donkey racetrack.

[–]Valhalla1759 4983 points4984 points  (285 children)

My thoughts going into this movie: Can’t wait to learn more about Snoke, where he came from, who he really is...

My thoughts leaving: Well fuck...

[–]mikeychief 669 points670 points  (6 children)

Im happy theyre not going the puppet master emperor route again, but God what an underutilization of a great performance by Serkis and an interesting character.

[–]Gekokapowco 1993 points1994 points  (47 children)

Me during the film: is all fun and games till the knights of Ren come out, just you wait!

And wait I did.

[–]teslasagna 449 points450 points  (22 children)

RIGHT?! Who was he? What is he? How did he come to be? Where was he during the prequels? WHAT'S WITH HIS FACE

[–]TheAndrewBen 3058 points3059 points  (59 children)

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

[–]RiverboatTurner 4879 points4880 points  (119 children)

I thought the scene with Leia slowly freezing was a beautiful send-off for Carrie Fisher. Then her fingers twitched...

[–]hoodie-weather 1009 points1010 points  (46 children)

when Finn and Phasma are fighting and he says "Bring it chrome dome" I just had to sit back and think how the fuck did that line go through multiple revisions and still make it into the movie.

[–]spursaustralia 5886 points5887 points  (134 children)

Adam Driver stole every scene he was in, he was incredible. Kylo Ren was my favourite character in this movie

[–]mrmiguelitto 895 points896 points  (12 children)

He is the Anakin Skywalker that we all deserved

[–]TheChokenOne 1170 points1171 points  (11 children)

"Blow that piece of junk out of the sky!"

So much rage. Love it.

[–]louisbancroft 16.5k points16.5k points  (707 children)

"Luke Skywalker projecting a force ghost across the galaxy to fuck with Kylo Ren" is the level of asshole I truly aspire to be.

[–]TheyCallMeStone 6800 points6801 points  (396 children)

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

[–]nickbagg 7157 points7158 points  (356 children)

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

[–]cdbriggs 5330 points5331 points  (240 children)

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

[–][deleted] 2037 points2038 points  (52 children)

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.

[–]Choekaas 238 points239 points  (3 children)

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).

[–]nickbagg 3765 points3766 points  (108 children)

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.

[–]Eroe777 987 points988 points  (27 children)

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?

[–]dogilchingu 784 points785 points  (4 children)

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

[–]busterxmke 287 points288 points  (0 children)

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

[–]Pyronaut44 1500 points1501 points  (9 children)

Thank the gods the Separatists didn't have an army of BB units, they'd have conquered the entire galaxy with those OP droids within 24 hours.

[–]ADarkKnightRises 7656 points7657 points  (337 children)

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.

[–]Jezamiah 3016 points3017 points  (83 children)

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...

Now that you mention it I totally forgot about that. It was something I found strange but it's never explored

[–]RedProtoman 1512 points1513 points  (36 children)

Both Rey and Kylo saw something about each other that either would turn in the end. Not sure if that was Snoke manipulating or so ething real. We could yet see something develop

[–]onogur 2504 points2505 points  (157 children)

Why did they kill Ackbar off screen, introduce a new admiral, and then kill her too?

[–]monerz45 1396 points1397 points  (15 children)

Fuck Adam Driver is a great actor though

[–]TilmanLipsitz 2694 points2695 points  (30 children)

Hm I always wanted to see Luke Skywalker run through a bunch of penguin seagulls to suck green milk out a gigantic alien cow tiddies

[–]standingteddybear 224 points225 points  (5 children)

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.

[–]fullforce098 5132 points5133 points  (70 children)

In loving memory of our princess

Carrie Fisher

I've heard theaters cheer, laugh, clap, and gasp, but I've never heard one audibly "Awww" like that.

[–]_Doggiedoggiewhatnow 3476 points3477 points  (21 children)

There was a moment where Luke said "no one is really gone" to Leia. I got goosebumps in that specific scene.

[–]yummyyummypowwidge 444 points445 points  (0 children)

“I’m glad you could be here for the end” really got to me

[–]PiFlavoredPie 442 points443 points  (30 children)

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?

[–]SNeave98 8622 points8623 points  (549 children)

That scene where Holdo light speeds into Snoke's ship. Simply brilliant. The visuals of the scene, the audio going silent, and Hux's face when he realises whats about to happen, is all fantastic.

[–]thatmethguy 3247 points3248 points  (97 children)

The silence was the best part, there was no sound that could have made it feel as great as the silence in the theatre

[–]JKRC 961 points962 points  (12 children)

When the heck are the bad guys gonna learn to land their attack forces closer to the base???

[–]give-me-blackjack 1114 points1115 points  (32 children)

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

Edit: Praetorian Guards

Edit2: Did I miss the shot from the trailer where Rey is running with her blue lightsaber when it's near dark out?
