The Last Jedi (pls no spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Force awakens was better IMO and made more sense, whilst it was essentially a rehash of the original story, it at least had story progression.

This has massive holes and it's like the writers/director had never seen TFA at all, some stories are completely lost, some are resolved terribly. 

It's just not very well written, is full of plot holes and Disney shoehorned in some stuff there which purely looks like a kids/merchandising angle and was very reminiscent of the prequels.

There was also too much humour IMO, some of it was unnecessary and badly timed at tense/darker moments.  

How Luke was overall dealt with was annoying. 

It was still enjoyable and looked cool, but disappointing as a Star Wars fan, I hope JJ Abrams has more influence over the next one and they get a more Star Wars fan type director 

 

 

 

Rey being a nobody even though they had built up mystery about her parents and history in the first film.

Phasma barely being in it and having a pretty terrible ending. 

The whole we can't catch up to them thing and drawn out chase where they were out of range of the lasers.

The stand in admiral not telling Poe her plan and thus causing a totally unnecessary mutiny.

How the fck the first order had manager to take over the whole galaxy and why the resistance are so small when the first order is supposed to be remnants of the Empire and there was probably 30-40 years of the New Republic which you can't just wipe out by destroying a handful of planets. 

How is rey forced trained and good with a light saber? 

 

 

The whole casino film full of CGI and CGI comedy with creatures was totally unecessary

As was Finns love story. 

 

Why has he left a map for people to come find him if he has gone there to die, why is he basically an arsey coward and there is no way he'd have tried to kill his own nephew.

It is also annoying he didn't actually get there properly, would have been a lot cooler if he'd been there and done all that in the battle deflecting all that fire, he is supposed to be a top jedi master so it would have been cooler to see him there just destroying AT-ATs and stuff, plus raising his old X-wing from the water (which we were shown a shot of) and appearing mid battle in it with R2

And then he dies by just being exhausted from the force projection, a bit lame.

Aww, thanks!

That pissed me off as well, at first, and then that's when I realized with the "rocks fall, everyone dies" ending of Rogue One, that's WHERE Rogue Squadron started from. The misfits, trouble-makers, assholes, and hot shots - All giving homage to the original Rogue. Note that there is never another Rogue 1 in the EU (fuck Disney canon, sometimes), as it is either Rogue Leader, or Rogue 2, 3, 4, etc...

Rouge Squadron actually predates A New Hope.  But for arguments sake we'll say it starts with ANH.  It was the X-wing squadron that Luke flew with, led by Wedge Antilles.  Don't go their mein frien.  You'll awaken the Geek Within

My apologies, whilst I've read all the Rogue/Wraith novels, and clocked far too many hours in the games, I just kinda assumed "Rogue" farted out Lucas' mind for Ep IV. Time to google!

 

Silly me, we're both wrong. I misremembered the squadron name for Battle of Yavin (Red), and Rogue wasn't used as a unit designer until the Battle of Hoth.
