I don't hate it. It's not worth that much effort or emotion. It just wasn't very good.
It was a waste of two hours of that story line, if anything.
8 was better than 7, and neither was good. Rogue One was good
Empire and Rogue One are in a league of their own.
Episode 8 is Scary Movie 3-5
The real first two star wars are the only star wars, everything else is Godfather 3
There is a lot of truth to this.
The Holiday Special and the Ewoks Battle for Endor are ahead of Episode 8.
Don't sniff glue
Wouldn’t dream of it
This is funny.
Mandalorian is fantastic.
Arguably best thing since empire.
Anyone else here watching mandalorian religiously? Great stuff.
I am an episode behind. In that I haven't watched tonight's episode yet. But I like it so far.
Yeah it’s been good.
I have a new appreciation for Episode 8, which I already liked more than 7, after hearing what Rian Johnson was going for with the Luke stuff. He was trying to reflect the reality of what it means to grow up, and for Rey that meant learning that there was not a person who could just hand her all the answers or solve all her problems. That even the legendary Skywalker is human, has made mistakes, etc. This was being juxtaposed with another truth about being an adult, and that is sometimes you need to cooperate and follow a plan, and that you sometimes don't know what you don't know. That's reflected with Po and Finn trying to do their own things and it kinda blowing up in their faces.
Probably the reason why the movie didn't feel right to people as these are not the usual themes of a mythic legend or epic.
Really interested to see how 9 is handled.
I've decided to watch 8 again before next Thursday. The Clone and I have plans this weekend to watch it while it rains all day.
Also read where Giancarlo Esposito will be playing a major role soon as it is going to be showing the formation of the First Order. And I'm more excited about that than anything.
