Well, I saw SW:The Last Jedi but I will wait to share my score. I don't want to influence anyone's expectations one way or the other

A score is not a spoiler, it's pure opinion.

I think the last film i watched was Oculus (2013). I'd give it 5/10, not a bad score from me. Some of the artistic elements were downright inspired and the acting was reasonably solid.

Well technically the film's released in most market and not spoiler anymore.

But it's nice of you to care about those who haven't seen it yet. There's always spoiler tags...

Whatever happened to Monday 6/10 - some decent action sequences and an interesting twist on an old dystopian future theme, otherwise dull and predictable

My score for Star Wars: The Last Jedi - 6.5/10

My issues with the film are solely with the writing as the acting and effects were fine.


My complaints:

Spoiler: spoilers
1) It was at least 30 minutes too long. The portion of the film at the casino was pointless and gave me major prequel flashbacks with cheesy CGI characters and chases. It dragged the film to a full stop. Other portions of the film could have been trimmed as well such as the empire slowly chasing down the rebel fleet.

2) I agree with Mark Hamill that Rian ruined the character of Luke in so many ways. And what was the point of him milking a large alien walrus.

Would Luke abandon society after a major failing like that? Maybe. But ghost Obi Wan and Yoda would likely talk sense into him.

Would Luke outright contemplate killing a student of his, let alone activate his lightsaber to kill a student? Nope.

Rian turned him into a one liner machine, I guess as comic relief. He barely trained rey or developed as a character. Rey has these combat skills yet little training has ever been shown. That's lazy.

3) Snoke. Oh boy. He's such a master of the yet he doesn't recognize Kylo rotating the lightsaber next to him in that poorly written scene. In my opinion, Rian was just trying to be clever and unpredictable by killing off Snoke so quickly. all those theories had about who he was and where he was during during the original trilogy? pointless.

4) The humor. There were so many complete misses on the humor front for me. Although the one thing I expected to despise, the porgs, somehow worked for me half the time. Especially Chewy's campfire scene.

5) Lukes death. I assume the force apparition he created cost him his life?

7) Where's the big cliffhanger? Their remaining fleet is decimated, Luke is dead and Kylo is a mediocre villain. We know that film 9 ends the skywalker saga. So that tells me Kylo will die childless in episode 9. Leia is already dead since Carrie passed away. It's too bad this film didn't end with her sacrificing herself, but the writers had no clue she would die so suddenly.

So is the end goal to kill Kylo and let the empire continue as it is anyway? that will be rewarding lol.

It was probably a mistake for JJ to do a soft reboot of the series by negating the rebellions victory in ROTJ and bringing back the status quo in the galaxy. That meant a LOT was due to be repeated.

Letting Rian crap all over TFA and determine what he thought was most important was also a mistake. He may be a good director, but he was not a good writer for this film.

It's still a tad better than the best the prequel films had to offer though.

Seen a couple of excellent films recently....
Lady Bird - contender for best film. Really well written & acted.
The Shape of Water - another Del Toro classic.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri 9/10 - My expectation was that this would be a really good movie. My expectation was exceeded and then some. Would like to ramble on and on about it, but I do not want to set the expectations of others too high. I'll just say that this movie is a must see.

Bonus: Tyrion is in it.
