I thought Luke kicked tremendous butt by being able to cast his form across the galaxy. I loved that. To me, Yoda should have taken a similar tact to beat Dooku easily in EpII... I never understood why he went toe to toe. Luke's story I'm good with. It's Leia spacewalk & them not writing her out of the story properly I can't resolve yet.

Indeed Obiwan taught him well, but wouldn't you have just about died and gone to heaven if Luke with force ghost Yoda watching behind him lifted that x wing out of the water, flew in to confront Kylo, "for real" the proxy fight felt like a slap to Luke, I remember thinking in the theater, when luke faded away, did he just end it himself? force suicide? at this point, I wonder

I hope some employees of Disney reads these boards, star wars is a 40 year old institution, with established characters, it has fans spending fortunes on it, they are passionate about it, countless books, films and incredible enthusiastic fans. Unfortunately I now feel like I have to say it, here goes.

Dear Disney:

Don't put guardians of the galaxy in episode 9

Mulling it over for a bit now, the biggest disappointment is the way Luke was written, I know what I wanted to see, and to be honest we deserved to see the old heroic Luke in action, after nearly 30 years of waiting to see it again Disney teased us with it at the end of TFA, then we so eagerly and patiently waitied to see a true hero, a jedi legend a childhood idol take one more crack at saving the galaxy and fight the dark side, but , we got a force projection and a moof milker hermit.

Disney made me want it, they recruited, Ford, Fisher Hamill, Daniels, Oz, even James Earl Jones in Rogue One, then left us on a cliff for two years, if they were going to just make up what ever they wanted and not stick to the true nature of the characters then why even bother putting them in?? Why go back and get the original cast, and make them ridiculous??

Luke Skywalker milked a sea monster.......

This movie did have great parts just not enough to make it a good movie, the audience score on rotten tomatoes now ranks lower than the phantom menace, its raking in the bucks though. I wonder even if die hard star wars fans and a lot of viewers don't like it, but brings in tons at the box office if Disney will look at it as a success, and model more movies after it?

That's an interesting question. 

It kind of reminds of what I've read about the Hasbro situation with Star Wars toys.  Hasbro won 't make play sets because they say they don't sell.  For TLJ, they make a giant BB-8 with a bad guy base in his belly and ask $200 for it.  It's not going to sell.  Does not selling a bad play set prove all play sets don't sell?  For Hasbro, it probably will and it'll be an excuse to never make a Death Star or Jabba's Sail Barge.

With TLJ, it's proving to be a disappointment with the general audience.  But, it's a live action "chapter" of Star Wars.  It's going to make money.  How many of us who didn't like it will attend a second or third screening?  I suspect many.  It's like that SNL skit about buying Star Wars toys.  We'll see it once because it's Star Wars.  If we don't like it, we'll see it again anyway to confirm we don't like it because maybe we missed something.  And if we still don't like, we'll still go a third time just to make sure.  Then we'll buy the bluray/DVD/digital combo of a movie we don't like because we don't want an incomplete collection.

Will Disney/Lucasfilm look more at the dissatisfaction or the profits?  I have no idea.

I suspect this may, however, increase the pressure for Solo to perform well. 

About 5 minutes after the movie ended I did want to see it again to make sure I hated it! lol After sleeping on it for a night I knew there was just too much wrong with it, and I thought to myself, I'm not going back to support it, I 'm not buying any merch from the film and as much as it pains me to not have the full collection on Blu-ray I won't buy it unless its second hand or clearance lol

The force awakens creates the questions about snoke and Rey's parents and set this movie up to be an easy home run, I just can't understand why the two main questions from the previous episode were thrown in the garbage. the Last Jedi not only is a wreck but also effects TFA and makes it a little less relavant, JJ Abrams will have his hands full fixing star wars in episode 9

I thought almost every character in The Last Jedi was out of character, the bold rush into danger help his friends Luke actually didn't leave the island he's probably got too much milking to do, Chewie was down graded to a chauffer, the undeniable brash R2 showed Luke one projection for about 5 seconds, Leia all of a sudden and use the force to keep from freezing in space, move herself in space and keep the pressurization of the ship from bursting out as she enters the ship, and I'm with you on not giving her a send off, if you didn't know Carrie had passed, you wouldn't know it from any hint on screen. Finn, Rose, Phasma have no purpose in the film, BB8 is all of a sudden a super droid, Poe is a mutineer, Snoke is not the protected mysterious all seeing master, Admiral Ackbar was a passing mention, and replaced by Hodor who no one really cares about. Rey and Kylo where about the only ones who were even close to being on point. Episode 8 goes against everything Star Wars, the resistance might as well call the autobots or star fleet for some help lol

jjreason I talked to Billy Dee Williams at Grand Rapids Comic Con in November I asked him if Disney had approached him for anything he said no, I agree a Lando appearance would have been awesome, another opportunity for him to show was when Leia called for help at the base.

This movie did have great parts just not enough to make it a good movie, the audience score on rotten tomatoes now ranks lower than the phantom menace, its raking in the bucks though.

Hux's reactions to Poe, wasn't believable to me really, imagine Tarkin in the same position. the bombing was good, I guess part of my issue with the film was that there is little build up and follow through, dreadnaughts don't seem very scary after a few x wings and a bomber take it out.
I can't get my head around the fact that they built up snoke, then killed him with a gotcha then the epic battle was with his body guards??
the whole canto bight scene seemed like fill
BB8 piloted an AT ST, R2 and Chewie really might as well not shown up for this movie and I don't know about chewies life expectancy in the next film

I will give credit where it is due though, Hamill and Carrie Fisher acted amazingly well, and the Yoda/luke scenes was some of the best star wars parts I've seen since the original trilogy, I just wish the rest of the movie was deeper and more consistent with the star wars universe we all know and love

I'm fully disappointed, the slow speed chase until the fleet ran out of gas seemed like a Zamboni race or something, don't get me stared on Leia flying, luke "died" pointlessly and it seems to me Disney wants to wipe away the old cast as quickly as possible. The first 5 minutes were a waste, I really really liked the yoda scene, a lot, and really cool of them to put harry potter in at the end!

I remember almost all of my star wars figures my parents bought me where from one store, it was called hy-way market, people from the k-w area might remember it, upstairs was the toy department and they had what I can recall a huge star wars section and always great displays, it was one of those old creaky floor type places, went out of business years ago but I can still remember almost every inch of that place, especially the star wars section!! oh to have a time machine for just one day. :winking0071:
