When the film started out with a "General Hugs" joke that was overplayed several times, I knew what type of mood to expect for the rest of the film. The CGI racing animals bit on the casino planet was laughably bad and everything I loathe about these new films.
I really enjoyed the Praetorian Guard fight, the series needs more of that, but moments like this are so few and far between.
A desperate attempt to wrap up a non existent story
For me the sequels go 5/5, 2/5, 3/5.
However, when an inevitable new trilogy kicks off again, I do hope they go with something more original and stop relying on the past so heavily.
Hear, hear! I’m writing my own episode 10, which honors all 11 previous films.
I still think (and hope) we’ll see a movie from him.
Retreading similar ground is the last thing I want (though this idea sounds way better than what was delivered in the end). After all the fan service and inevitable butchering of some iconic legacy characters, I'd much rather shift to a world of original players and connections that don't constantly draw on the past installments.
But it’s amusing to me because even 15 years ago there were fans who said they hoped the prequels were struck out of canon.
Literally no one dies In Star Wars anymore
I’m just happy it’s not Chris Pratt headlining another franchise with his boring, one note acting.
Not only did he survive, but his return is simply...revealed in the opening crawl. What? Why?
I remember when fans were desperate to figure out who Snoke was, only for that to not matter whatsoever.
Definitely, but seems like it would've been way more effective as a reveal in the film instead of saying "oh, by the way, this villain's returned for the last entry in this trilogy." Like you said, though, it's the least of the film's issues thankfully but it certainly stands out.
This is fair.
I’m more interested how he ended up attached to the massive machine keeping him alive after been thrown to his death down a shaft then his supposed dead body surviving a supernova when the Death Star exploded.
Then he conjured you tens of thousands of star destroyers and hid them under the rock and earth. Presumably with all the crews aboard.
It’s a good thing it moves so fast as it doesn’t bear up to any scrutiny
Those weren’t the knights. They were Snoke’s guards, much like the imperial guards that worked for the Emperor in ROTJ.
Rian Johnson did briefly consider using the Knights of Ren, but ultimately felt they should be a much tougher force than the red guards. Ironically, JJ Abrams would then just have them easily slaughtered by Ben Solo anyway, like it’s no big deal.
“Ha dr Jones. The ark is a pathway to many abilities…”
That’s not the point. Otherwise, most fight scenes in the history of cinema should just be distilled to ten seconds just because we already know the outcome.
“We know Bond is going to electrocute Oddjob to death, so let’s just do that a few seconds after the fight starts”
I’m not sure Ren defeats them in ten seconds, no.
Ben Solo took out the Knights of Ren faster than when he and Rey fought the red guards.
