The Last Jedi: Love it or hate it (NO SPOILERS)
« on: December 27, 2017, 06:30:50 PM »
So, its no surprise that the new Star Wars movie is divisive for various reasons. Without spoilers, lets poll the site to see how us diehard fans feel about the new movie. Feel free to discuss in a non-spoiler way. I dont want to be the guy who started a thread that ruined the movie for someone.

I nearly walked out. I spent the first half hour thinking "this must be some kind of sick joke."

I liked it.The Canto part was less interesting. The last act of the movie was amazing. Very good, but different Star Wars movie. I can see how people don't like it though.

I really enjoyed the film, the audio was very loud in the cinema so it made it a bit more real to me as well I think. I thought the visuals were really good and all the actors were amazing. Although it did make me laugh in TFA when Kylo said about finishing what Vader started as he actually STARTED to be good so surely Kylo should have just been trying to be good all the time :laugh:. I get what he means but I still found it a little funny. I wasn't a huge fan of TFA overall if I'm honest and I didn't feel that some of the CGI characters were right for star wars/didn't seem realistic as star wars characters and as a result I wasn't holding out too much hope for TLJ, but it turned out to be very good so it was a nice surprise for me. I think the acting was still good in TFA and it was definitely through no fault of the voice actors but I felt like the looks of some of the CGI characters weren't quite there. It might just be because I'm used to the costumes and makeup of the star wars characters (or at least that kind of look) rather than CGI ones.

Now the dust has settled. Who still votes the same as they initially did?

Good visuals, crap plot, crapped on all of the original characters and did them no justice. Also crapped on JJ's TFA ongoing plotlines.

I tried to rewatch it with an open mind. I wanted to like it. If anything I hated it even more. I know fully endorse the simulation hypothesis. There only explanation I have for the difference in opinion between the haters and enthusiastic fans is that the great programmer in the sky (the maker?) has shown us different films as an experiment. The scenes are similar enough that we all think we saw the same movie. I'm happy for the folks that got to see the wonderful film they claim exists.
