Lots of people were down on The Last Jedi (I was not one of them), so I'm really looking forward to this one. And dig the Emperor's laugh at the end of the trailer.

Well, I was one of those that really hated the last Jedi. In fact the more I think about it, the angrier I get. That being said, I am looking forward to the new one, but I still have a bitter taste in my mouth. Whatever happens, I'm sure JJ will do a much better job than that clown rian johnson did. The trailer does look good, but so did TLJ trailer.

So do you think that was Palpatine, or perhaps Snoke laughing at the end?

I'm in. I don't get people who get bent out of shape over the silly stuff in the new Star Wars, barring the first two films it's all silly.

Did you guys catch that chunk of Death Star at the end?!

Holy hand grenade! Looks crazy, although I expect things to be more straight forward this time around, much like ROTJ. I'm not thrilled JJ came back either. But we're getting Lando and Palpatine, sooo...hey.

Questions/remarks I have:
-So is that Death Star fragment on Endor or its moon? There's a lot of ocean and no forest in these shots.
-Those are some furry hands there doing the repair's on Kylo's headgear
-The desert planet feels somewhat "Tatooine."
-The landship Threepio is on looks similar to Jabba's smaller transports
-Rey is using the Skywalker saber again. Wonder if she'll ever get her own.
-I hope she's not a Skywalker. That would be too obvious. She needs to be a nobody chosen for the next gen of Jedi.
-"Every Generation has a Legend??" Isn't that from the Ep I trailers??

Great title, too.

I cant wait

Lucasfilm has confirmed that Palpatine will be in the new movie

My theory is Skywalker will be what they call the "new" jedi order

Could also be Yavin 4 for the DS fragment

Awesome to see Lando in the trailer

cant wait but first I gots GOT, Cobra Kai and Avengers Endgame to watch Very Happy

So it's been out for a couple weeks now, what did you guys think of it? It was pretty much what I expected. Better than TLJ, but still n it a good SW movie. Trying to fix the mess Roundhead Johnson made was too large a task. Too me it was just a huge mess, and I hope they can do better on the next films. Really a shame they had to fuck up the final Skywalker trilogy, but oh well.

I haven't seen it yet. I was going to go Sunday, but my 12 year old pug Turbo passed away a half an hour before we were to leave. I will catch it at some point.

I saw it opening weekend and enjoyed it. My wife and kids didn't want to go so I went Solo. Thought it was well done but I also liked TLJ.

I will mention that The Mandalorian is way better than the 3 latest movies. I am not sure how Mandalorian would work as a movie but it is great as 35-40 minute episodes and I hope they keep the format.



See 1:21? I was convinced that was Lando. I watched several episodes wondering what Lando was doing. Then my son said "that isn't Lando it's Apollo Creed!". Also nice to see POLLO again at 1:23.

Disney needs to shitcan Kathleen Kennedy. This entire trilogy was aimless, disjointed, and made shit up on the fly. How can you not have a PLAN? Seriously, you've got Marvel NEXT DOOR tying 20+ movies into a single shared universe... Lucasfilm can't tie 3 movies into a cohesive unit?! Disney has completely dropped the ball with Star Wars. If they had simply made the Thrawn Trilogy as the sequel, they would have had every Star Wars fan eating out of the palm of their hand.

I enjoyed TRoS for what it was. It can't hold a candle to any of the movies in the original trilogy, IMO. It also relied too much on nostalgia without really doing anything to set it apart... It was simply bubblegum for the brain.

The Mandalorian was excellent. It used nostalgia as a hook, not as a crutch. Some of the episodes were a bit average, but overall the series was great. I LOVE the reveal at the end of episode 8! Nods to vague or little known lore are fun.

I agree whole heartedly! I am so disappointed in the whole trilogy I could write for hours about it. The way they treated the original three hero's from the first SW trilogy is a shame in itself. I understand they wanted to make it about new people, and I was fine with that, but don't turn the biggest badass Jedi that destroyed the empire, into a grumpy old sniveling coward. They also took Han Solo and turned him into a,deadbeat father that abandoned his family. The only one they really did justice too was Chewy. I won't bring up Lando having a love story with a robot since that wasn't brought up in the trilogy.

Then the plot, or lack thereof was just terrible. You're right on about the Thrawn trilogy. That would have been such a kickass movie and the perfect choice for a follow-up to RotJ. They ruined the last chance that we will ever have to see Luke, Han and Leia together again. Far as I'm concerned, this trilogy doesn't exist and I'll just be happy with the original six.

Edit: Would be funny if George Lucas could make a new trilogy and call it something else with different character names. He could do his original idea he gave to Disney. I hear he had very detailed stories already written about the direction he was planning on taking it, but Disney said thanks but no thanks. I know he can't do it without getting sued to hell and back, but I can dream can't I? Very Happy

I took my 14 year old daughter to see it opening weekend....she's more of a fan of the Clone Wars animated series and doesn't really have an opinion about the new trilogy.
We spent a Saturday recently and watched all the movies back to back to get ready for TRoS.

It was decent enough, I'm happy. JJ's not a bad director per se, but he plays it safe too often and has a knack for not following through with initial delivery. For instance, in RoTS we have Finn wanting to tell Rey something as they quickly sink in the marsh pit or whatever it is...and he never brings it up again. Totally leaves everyone, including us, in the dark. Similar to how we never learn how Luke's saber made it to the hands of Maz.

For the record, that Maz alien is the worst. I can't stand her. She's ill-defined and is given the omniscience of a muse. Not to mention the ugliest use of CG yet.

But there was enough satisfactory (even if routine) carnage sequences along the way to make it worth the trip. Sort of like RotJ in that it's...well, obligatory, simply put, yet visually stunning. The Star Destroyer porn (for miles!) and their Peter North Penis Guns were pretty awesome no matter how one looks at it.

And I'll say this...it's not as good as Last Jedi. Yes, Last Jedi has numerous problems, but I think the focus is too much on how it's a problem in and of itself. Guys, this whole new trilogy is the problem and Rian had a lot to deliver on as an auteur. I could give an essay on why the Kennedy era failed--my strongest belief here is that they lack George Lucas' personality, which is an essential ingredient--but keep in mind that JJ set Rian up with some seriously stupid loose ends to tie. Rian did his best, took risks, and echoed/augmented a ton of the lore that Lucas had already set up, while having to work around JJ's fuck-ups. If anyone, I blame JJ for the slight misaligned mess these three movies have been. Sure Kennedy didn't have a plan--but neither has Lucas ever had a solid plan, making stuff up as he went along. JJ has simply too much head on his shoulders thinking he can rival his heroes. Super 8 wasn't nearly the Spielberg movie he was hoping for. Star Trek was fun for a ride, but it was awkward fun that never held up on second viewing. And his goal seems to constantly be bringing back old characters and even reviving them, and then layering everything in cute "aw, shucks, hug and kiss" moments and melodrama that's more fit for primetime television--ironically where he came from. It's not congruent with either the OT or the prequels. Whereas Star Wars was meant for kids, these new movies feel more like crummy young adult novels--"The Teenage Adventures of Star Wars and Friends," if you will.

From a certain point of view.

But honestly I prefer to shelve all my critical thinking on everything Star Wars and just try to enjoy the ride. This was the toughest ride to enjoy yet--too many weird contrivances that took me out of the movie--but it still put a smile on my face, so TRoS gets a B+ from me, just like Force Awakens, and I'm delighted regardless.

Unfortunately this entry in the Star Wars franchise would be considered a refrigerator movie (a term coined by Hitchcock). The more I think about it, the more it falls apart.

Absolute unwatchable dreck. Hilariously terrible, but an all new terrible from the previous film. What a disaster of a franchise. At least the Mandalorian was enjoyable.

Yeah, The Mandalorian was a well-timed save on Disney's part. I think if I hadn't seen it before RotS, I would probably just the whole thing down. But seeing Mandalorian reignited that fanboy flame I had in me decades ago, and I'm able to shrug the latest movie off as acceptable.

I guess Mandalorian kinda softened the blow.
