Probably you are right, I'm in the group of people who hated TLJ. But maybe in a couple of years, I'll say.. "this is actually a good movie and a RJ made a bold move."
Yeah TFA was what the franchise needed in 2015... not in 2019.
I think the Sequel Trilogy has taught us that it's less about the overall quality than it is how far the movies diverge from fan expectations and feed into that sense of entitlement (or rather, don't).
yeah. It is dumb that people pretend it is bad now.
I really enjoyed it when it first came out, I saw it like 3 times in the first week lol. I think I need to take a break from it personally as I’ve seen it too many times and each viewing gets me down on it.
Dominic Monaghan is Sofia CoppolaI like to think of the ST as Star Wars's Godfather or Alien trilogy; two excellent, contrasting films that folks will forever compare against the other, and then a third, superfluous-feeling chapter that goes off the rails by such a significant degree that people would rather just not talk about it going forward
While I think that's mostly Taika fucking around like he always does, I do feel like there's a bit of truth there as well. We've already seen D&D drop out 'cus they don't wanna deal with everything that doing a Star Wars film entails.I think people see me hanging out with people, especially with Star Wars, and think I’m having some big discussions about it. I would fucking love to... If it was right. I would want to do any kind of movie if it made sense, and if it felt not like career suicide.
I'm sure they're still there but I honestly wish they weren't. I got used to them but I never warmed up to them.
Yup. So much more is stolen away in that moment than just the Jedi's lives.
Sly Moore, an Umbaran female Force Adept with the alleged ability to manipulate the minds of others, was the senior administrative aide and Chief of Staff of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine during the final years of the Galactic Republic. She would ultimately stand at the chancellor's side along with Vice Chair Mas Amedda on the day Palpatine ended the Clone Wars and anointed himself Emperor of the First Galactic Empire. She was one of the few people who knew of Palpatine's true identity as Darth Sidious.
Not criticizing TLJ, but a major difference is that the galaxy was completely under the domination of the Empire at the time Yoda and Obi-Wan went into hiding while the galaxy was peaceful and ruled by the New Republic at the time Ben went rogue. There was nothing, politically speaking, stopping Luke from tracking him down and killing him and ending everything right there.
That' the one. Theater always clapped at this moment. Then got confused when he died.
I just love Boyega's attitude. Dude is laughing all the way to the bank.
lol Rey and Poe go from “hey there ;)” to hating each others guts one movie later.My Top 10 Cutest Moments of the Sequel Trilogy
10. BB-8 trying to wake up R2.
A perfect blend of old and new, sad and cute. I can't wait for the kids cartoons where R2 and BB-8 go on adventures together.
9. Porg lightsaber gag
It's a credit to Rian Johnson for how quickly he can make us all go "No, stop touching that" like we're all concerned parents.
8. Rey meets Poe
This is unfair because everyone makes this face when they meet Oscar Isaac. It's also unfair because I would have loved to see a ReyPoe romance in Duel of the Fates. I'll settle for this gif, though.
7. Puppet Yoda is back
Bringing back Yoda as a puppet isn't just about design. It's about how he moves. How cute Muppets are when they animate properly. Glad to see our little green Space Kermit back and looking adorable. <3
6. *insert Eyes emoji*
We all looked. And then looked again. Then were confused by the pants. Then looked some more. This is a "cute" list, not an "oh my" list, but I couldn't not include it.
5. Babu Frik
The Rise of Skywalker is a divisive film, but the one thing everyone agrees on is Babu Frik. We must protect this smart boy at all costs.
4. No eat Porg
Chewy rips men's arms off, but nobody can resist a sad looking Porg. (I bet they taste yummy, tho)
3. Poe rubs BB-8's belly like a puppy.
C'mon. We all want to do it.
2. Porg Co-pilot
After Han Solo died, Chewy needed a new co-pilot. The ship was gifted to Rey, but we all know who Chewy really wanted by his side.
1. BB-8 Thumbs Up
I saw this movie multiple times in theaters, and no sight gag popped harder. It's funny, adorable, inventive and a perfect distillation of our perfect little round buddy.
