The Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of THE FORCE AWAKENS join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks new mysteries of the Force. It's "everything you could want and more from a STAR WARS film" (Katie Walsh, Detroit Free Press).

I'm female and I never believed the fact that Luke was a male was limiting my options. I love that JJ Abrams created Rey and I didn't feel she was a "Mary Sue" character (sorry men who call the character that, but that IS sexist considering Anakin was born incredibly gifted too!) HOWEVER... Rian Johnson ruined a great opportunity to build her story. He turned her into a tool for Kylo Ren... Which is far better than what he did to Luke Skywalker. Had I wanted to watch "Grumpy Old Men" I would have stayed home and watched it.
The only reason I gave this movie 2 stars instead of 1 is because I liked the romantic "telepathic" connection between Rey and Kylo Ren but that was a TOTAL RIPOFF of Joss Whedon's movie "In Your Eyes" ...but I'd rather see a ripoff of many other movies than see Luke Skywalker become a useless, disillusioned, cynic who refuses to train Rey. Some say "The Force Awakens" was a ripoff of the original Star Wars (aka "A New Hope") and also "The Phantom Menace" but thank you JJ Abrams because I love that movie! He knows how to make and sell people what they love! ...BRILLIANT!!! ...INSPIRED!!! ...CREATIVE!!!
Unfortunately, I feel like "The Last Jedi" should actually be called "Didn't Care At All" because that is what they conveyed.
Kathleen Kennedy are you really a Social Justice Warrior??? Hire a female director! I will never forgive Rian Johnson and I will never EVER go to a movie he is involved with again.
Now the bad part- the rest of the movie! OK, folks, they have changed SW to SJW and that's as plain as the nose on my face. Rogue One was slow, but it is the only thing Disney has released that has resembled a Star Wars movie. These new main characters- Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8, Kylo Ren- are cheap imitations of the OT characters they are meant to replace, ie Luke, Leia, Han, R2-D2 and Vader. or to put it another way... they SUCK!
They aren't likeable, they do nothing worthwhile, and they aren't funny. Rey could be a good character if they let her come along slowly and learn as she goes, instead the idiots in charge have pretty much made her infallable for no reason. She's a Mary Sue who cannot do any wrong, she was presented as perfect from day one and she's only improved since. Bring that up to the Lucas Clique and they'll say you're afraid of a strong female character, instead of owning up to the fact that they simply cannot present her in an imperfect light. Luke and Anakin trained, they did good, they made mistakes and they went into entirely different directions because of that, to become who they would be. Other characters goofed too, be it Leia, Han, Ben, all of them. We still liked the movies because they had heart, and that's what is inherently lacking in these new characters.The "your mama" jokes don't help either. These new movies are than the prequels, and it's not even close. I will not say that The Last Jedi is totally bad, it's a good as anything released in current times, it's just a pale comparison to the universe that was opened up to me in 1977 when I was 8 years old and which made me look to the stars on a nightly basis, waiting to see an X-Wing or TIE Fighter fly across the sky. I look at these newer movies and no longer wonder why millenials are eating Tide Pods. They don't have the tools we had to spur our own imagination and they aren't given the heroes we were given, especially in a Star Wars movie!
If Mark Hamill is not in Episode 9, I will not be in the theater watching it, plain and simple. There are simply too many ways to see movies in this age without giving Disney and Lucasfilm more money to spend on these ridiculous CEOs, writers, directors and actors. I will however, give Ron Howard's Solo movie a shot, as i have a feeling the only way we'll get close to a Star Wars movie is through these standalone films.
"Help me, Captain Solo, you're my only hope!"
Acting? Storyline? Continuity? Plot? MARY SUE? AWFUL.
It felt like a 6 year old directed a movie written by an 8 year old and acted by 3 year olds. IT WAS AWFUL.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is without a doubt the WORST of the entire franchise, and I AM including the 3 prequels and the Christmas movie in there. At no point in time did this movie resemble anything but a massive cluster of awfulness. At no point at all during the movie EXCEPT for when Kylo force hurled' Huks did any part of this movie be redeemable.
I'd give it ZERO stars, but one will have to do as the minimum Amazon lets me leave on this piece of filth movie. AND I hope it killed the Franchise because that was a travesty.
