The latest of the space epic movies has our heroes fleeing the ruthless First Order and going in different directions, including digging up former Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, who's spent a few years playing guitar for the Grateful Dead by the looks of him. Entertaining enough, though the absence of Han Solo is deeply felt.

To be honest, I really wanted to like this movie. I really loved The Force Awakens, while I've always known of the Star Wars franchise I didn't bother to give it a shot till that movie. I loved it, watched the rest, even read a few of the comics. Seeing as I didn't grow up with nostalgia goggles I didn't hate the prequels...much. But god almighty I did not like The Last Jedi.

It had it's moments (the grass bit with Rey, General Hugs, Holdo's badass moment) but there was just a lot of sloppy writing that people hand waved as subversive. Luke becoming an embittered old man because he failed to stop Ben's darkness didn't make sense to me, I mean he's the guy who thought Darth Vader was redeemable! He was always the more optimistic of him and Leia (honestly if either of them were to go dark side I would be looking at Leia not Luke) And I thought it was strange that he feared Rey wanting to know not just about the force but herself, when he was like that once.

I don't know, I just feel like there was a lot set up in TFA that was just thrown away. Snoke was built up to be more by the fact that he was unknown enity yet had the wealth and the power to control the empire so his death felt unsatisfactory.

In TFA Rey was shown being abandoned as her parents flew into space - strange if they really were drunks who died ON Jakku. That people were satisfied with it shocks me, they keep saying they're glad to see a hero that comes from nothing but most Jedi do come from nothing?? Once they were known to be force sensitive they were more or less spirited away from their families never to see them again. If they were once part of a grand legacy too bad, they're part of Jedi order now. So the idea of Rey having a legacy whether it was as Luke's secret daughter or Obi Wan's secret granddaughter or whatever theory there was didn't seem so hairbrained to me. It could have paralleled Kylo, Rey as another legacy child, but showing how vastly different their choices were and how it shaped not just them but the star wars universe as a whole. That you can from nothing (like Anakin) or be from something terrible/tragic (like the Skywalker twins) and become something great or come from something good and still walk dark path.

Other things I had feelings about:

-The fights were ok on first watch but any more than that you start to see how sloppy it some parts were also it felt like there was too much fighting & explosions, not enough story telling.
- the casino plot seemed unnecessary and more like to give Rose more to her backstory and give Finn a reason to stay, if only Holdo trusted and explained her plan to Poe (someone she knew was reckless & doing things his way)
-I liked some of Rose's parts but the romance between her and Finn seemed so random
-again parts of the story were random or confusing or the transitions weren't very clear. Did they just reuse Finn's general plot from TFA?? It felt like his part was an after thought and he could have been replaced by any random or rose could've gone by herself
-the music was good! I thought I would cry every time they played parts of Binary Sunset

Overall this movie felt really long, I wasn't as emotionally invested, by the end all i hoped was that they didn't try to use CGI for Leia in the next movie what with Carrie being dead in real life (RIP Carrie) I hope they don't. I wish TLJ could've been different, but I'm still willing to see what JJ does deals with the material TLJ gave him and how this trilogy will end. I just want it to end on a more hopeful note even if it's not the happiest of notes. They always say Star Wars is a fairy tale but it's not one without loss and hard learned lessons.

Kathleen Kennedy has destroyed the newest Star Wars movies. The politically correct movies are not horrible, but they are not Star Wars either. Luke Skywalker was wasted in this movie.

Boring slog of a movie that does nothing for the past star wars characters and the newly introduced ones as well. 1 star for good special effects and overall look of the movie but that is it. Cheesy dialogue, odd transitions, pointless/awkward scenes, dislikeable characters, plot holes and disjointed continuation from Force Awaken (which was a New Hope rehash with a main character Rey who has zero character growth because she is good at everything) and so on.

I didn't see this in theatres because Force Awakens was... odd and the talk of polarization between fans who will hate or like this movie I completely agree with here.

Overall my interest in the Starwars universe, though never big to begin with, only lessened after surviving this movie. Not going to watch Solo movie at all because I don't want to see Han Solo's character get butchered like what they did with Luke the alien-milking-nerf-herder and Leia the non-established-force-using-superwoman in this movie.

Disc I received is unplayable. After about 45 minutes of a movie I couldn’t follow in the first place, it began to continually freeze up for periods, and skip forwards only to immediately freeze again. I cleaned with a static free cloth, but no improvement.

After "The Joke Awakens" thought I would give it one more try with different Director Ect, Well didnt think they could do worse but I was wrong. Story line, Acting Ect to say it was Bad would be complementing it and the death of a Jedi Icon was very Anticlimatic! I think this was the final Nail in the Starwars Coffin R.I.P, and thank you Disney for Destroying a Great Franchise. Oh well will always have the First 6 to remember what a Great story it once was, "A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far Far Away"! To Sadly True.

Incoherent story with characters that have no consistent character (their behavior changes dramatically in order to make different choices in order to move the plot along a pre-determined path). More annoying than anything, without the action of the prequels to provide some entertainment.

This additional to the Star Wars saga is good. It pretty much wraps up the old and segways into the new. It seems Mark Hamill for some reason was reluctant to be involved. As to Rose, she seems as though she was a fan who got to be in the movie.

Again tons of quotes in IMDb already. This one somehow was quoted a bit off:
IMDb:
Rose Tico: We're going to win this war not by fighting what we hate, but saving what we love!

Film:
Rose Tico: I saved you... silly. That's how we're gonna win. Not fighting what we hate ... saving what we love.

Rey: It’s a power that Jedi have that lets them control people and…. make things float.

Poe Dameron: This is Commander Poe Dameron of the Republic fleet, I have an urgent communique for General Hugs.

General Hux: This is General Hux of the First Order. The Republic is no more. Your fleet are Rebel scum and war criminals. Tell your precious princess there will be no terms, there will be no surrender...

Poe Dameron: Hi, I'm holding for General Hugs.

General Hux: This is Hux. You and your friends are doomed. We will wipe your filth from the galaxy.

Poe Dameron: Okay. I'll hold.

General Hux: Hello?

Poe Dameron: Hello? Yup, I'm still here.

General Hux: Can he hear me?

Poe Dameron: Hugs?

Poe Dameron: With an 'H'? Skinny guy. Kinda pasty.

General Hux: I can hear you. Can you hear me?

Rey of Jakku finally meets the lost Luke Skywalker, Rebellion hero of the galaxy. Unfortunately, he is sullen, self-pitying, and angry because of his failings and Kylo Ren's betrayal. Rey seeks not only help for the Resistance but also a place for herself in the Force—and ultimately the whole universe. But Luke is stone-cold from being away from love for so long, and it takes days for him to finally agree to help Rey. To his surprise, the orphaned girl is much more than just a scavenger with measly Force powers—she is capable of more power than Kylo Ren. Fearing both the past and the future, Luke refuses to return to the Resistance with Rey.
Meanwhile, the Resistance is struggling to survive in the blackness of outer space. New technology has allowed the First Order to track them through hyperspace. No place is safe. Finn and a technician named Rose have a plan—hack into the lead star destroyer and momentarily turn off the tracking technology. Then the Resistance can lightspeed away before the First Order even realizes what has occurred. Finn and Rose set off on a daring mission to find a master codebreaker who can help them. Finding themselves in a "paradise world" called Canto Bight, circumstances become more difficult than ever.
Will the Resistance prevail? Or will the cruel First Order destroy all peace and love that ever existed in the galaxy? This thrilling adventure is not one you want to miss.

Resistance forces, led by General Leia Organa, flee D'Qar when a First Order fleet arrives. Poe Dameron leads a costly counterattack that destroys a First Order dreadnought, but after the Resistance escapes to hyperspace, the First Order tracks them and attacks the Resistance convoy. Kylo Ren, Leia's son, hesitates to fire on the lead Resistance ship after sensing his mother's presence, but his TIE fighter wingmen destroy the bridge, incapacitating Leia. Disapproving of new leader Vice Admiral Holdo's passive strategy, Poe helps Finn, BB-8, and mechanic Rose Tico embark on a secret mission to disable the tracking device on the lead ship. Meanwhile, Rey arrives on Ahch-To with Chewbacca and R2-D2 aboard the Millennium Falcon to recruit Luke Skywalker to the Resistance. Disillusioned by his failure to train Kylo as a Jedi, and under self-imposed exile from the Force, Luke refuses to help and believes that the Jedi should become extinct. Unbeknownst to Luke, Rey and Kylo can communicate through the Force. As the rival Force users learn about each other, each has future visions of themselves as partners. R2-D2 persuades Luke to train Rey. After Kylo tells Rey what happened between him and Luke that caused him to choose the dark side of the Force, Luke confesses that he momentarily contemplated killing Kylo upon sensing that Supreme Leader Snoke was corrupting him, causing Kylo to destroy Luke's new Jedi Order in retaliation. Convinced that Kylo can be redeemed, Rey leaves Ahch-To to confront Kylo without Luke. Luke prepares to burn the Ahch-To Jedi temple and library, but hesitates. Yoda's ghost appears and destroys the temple by summoning a thunderstorm, and encourages Luke to learn from his failure. Holdo reveals her plan to discreetly evacuate the remaining Resistance members using small transports. Believing her actions cowardly and risky, Poe leads a mutiny. Finn, Rose, and BB-8 travel to the Canto Bight casino and acquire the help of the hacker DJ, who says he can help them disable the tracking device. They infiltrate Snoke's ship, but get captured by Captain Phasma. Meanwhile, Kylo brings Rey to Snoke, who claims that he facilitated the mental connection between her and Kylo as part of a plan to destroy Luke. Ordered to kill Rey, Kylo instead kills Snoke and, with Rey, defeats Snoke's guards. Rey believes that Kylo has returned to the light side of the Force, but he instead invites her to rule the galaxy with him, which she refuses. They use the Force to fight for possession of Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber, which splits in two. Leia recovers and stuns Poe, allowing the evacuation to begin. Holdo remains on the ship to mislead Snoke's fleet as the others flee to an abandoned Rebel Alliance base on Crait. Holdo sacrifices herself by ramming Snoke's fleet at lightspeed; Rey escapes in the chaos, while Kylo declares himself Supreme Leader. BB-8 frees Finn and Rose, who escape after defeating Phasma, and they join survivors on Crait. When the First Order arrives, Poe, Finn, and Rose attack with old speeders. Rey and Chewbacca draw the TIE fighters away with the Falcon, while Rose stops Finn from completing a suicide run against the enemy siege cannon, which penetrates the Resistance fortress. Luke appears and confronts the First Order to enable surviving Resistance members to escape. Kylo orders the First Order's forces to fire on Luke to no effect. He then engages Luke in a lightsaber duel; upon striking Luke, Kylo realizes he has been fighting a Force projection of him. Rey uses the Force to help the Resistance escape on the Falcon. Luke, exhausted, dies peacefully on Ahch-To. His death is sensed by Rey and Leia, but Leia tells surviving rebels that the Resistance has all it needs to rise again. At Canto Bight, one of the children who helped Finn and Rose escape grabs a broom with the Force and gazes into space.
