I think the moment I realized TLJ discussion was not worth having and would degrade my brain cells was a day or two after release when somebody on here tried to tell me that your mom jokes are "anachronistic" and "too modern for Star Wars." Your mom jokes are the oldest form of humor in existence.

my favorite bit of humor from TLJ is during Poe's crank call to Hux, when Poe is calling him General Hugs the whole time and Hux does not notice, just replies "YES THIS IS GENERAL HUX"

my favorite bit from the TLJ panel at the last celebration was Rian's "OF COURSE THERE"S A TRAILER!!" that was so hype.

I’m a big fan of TLJ but I do think some of the comedy, like the iron press, the your momma joke and Luke milking the fat water creature did have a different quality of humor than what’s come before (OT specifically). It’s a little “out there”, almost Spaceballs-ish.

It blows my mind that people don’t like that scene. Not only is it the best scene of the movie imo, it may just be my favorite scene of any Star Wars movie ever. “We are what they grow beyond” is definitely my favorite line ever, the whole conversation and interaction is so powerful at laying out clearly (or it should be) what the movies message is yet also totally absolutely nostalgic in the best possible way. I actually hope we never get another Yoda scene in a movie again because that ones never gonna be topped, ever, it’s the perfect send off.

But nope. “Force ghosts can’t do that!” 🤯

For that matter, Luke’s ending is also fuckin perfection, I almost wish we weren’t gonna get his ghost (almost) and while I originally thought it was crazy that they killed him off right after Han, in retrospect I dunno if anyone could have given him a better death than Rian did, so I’m kinda glad then.

“Eeeyyyhhhaaaaa that’s not how the force works!”
It’s the best scene in all of Star Wars in my mind, too. Just the pinnacle of what this whole thing is about. Funny, emotional, introspective, magical and inspirational.

Yo, thought I'd share this somewhere where people might think it's cool. My wife and I are going on vacation to Ireland in a couple weeks and there's boat tours around Skellig Michael! So she bought us tickets. It's weather permitting, but they say you can get pretty close and maybe see some whales, too.

So stoked.

Looks like one of us is gonna be sucking some alien whale tiddies next month.

Green milk was awesome! It's like one of those moments where Luke the farmboy leaks through instead of Luke the Jedi. "I need to get this chick to beat it, this'll do!"
Whenever I try to discuss TLJ with my close friends or brothers who grew up as HUGE SW fans but who all uniformly hated TLJ, all they say is "blue titty juice" and that's basically a conversation ender. Like, that's literally all they think needs to be said to prove their point that TLJ was garbage.

Man my biggest worry leading up to TLJ was definitely that Mark Hamill wouldn't be able to bring it and his scenes would end up kinda like some of the clumsy Leia scenes in TFA, especially based on various recent live action roles he'd had (i.e. The Flash, Kingsman). That would have been a huge bummer, for them to revisit a hero and leave me underwhelmed. But no, he fucking brought it (Carrie Fisher too, much better than in TFA).

Yeah, I had the same exacts thoughts leading to the movie. I love Mark but he’s not really the greatest actor ever, you know. His performance surprised me by just how goddamn good it was, he was able to go toe to toe with great actors like Daisy and Adam and not seem out of place.

I’ve probably said this a billion times now but his performance is fantastic when he’s telling Rey what really happened in the hut.

Watched Blindspotting just now (holy shit, fantastic movie) and kept wondering where I had seen this character before:

It was Iden Versio!


It was killing me that I couldn't place her.

I have a new theory for Episode 9. What if Rey is offered the power to bring back her parents (a callback to Anakin offered the power to save Padme) and this puts her on the path to the dark side. Idk I just watched the Anakin/Sheev opera scene again (still a great scene btw) and it me think of it.

I don't think that would fit, especially after accepting that her parents were nobodies that sold her.

I could see her being tempted to the Darkside in an attempt to save those she cares about. Mainly because of her lack of caution/fear towards it.

One idea I had back during the TFA days was that somewhere down the line, Rey would get mortally wounded and "die" in IX, but either Luke or Leia do some whacky force hijinks and pass their lifeforce to save her at the expense of theirs.

A half-literal, half-figurative handover of the Skywalker legacy, if you will.
