Star Wars films ranked:

1. Episode V: Empire Strikes Back (all around good movie)
2. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (meh act i, fantastic climax)
3. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (a few missteps mixed in with actually great moments)
4. Episode III and a half: Rogue One (slow start, great ending)
5. Episode IV: A New Hope (kind of slow by modern standards, but the ending is still amazing)

After this point they become movies I wouldn't want to watch again

6. Episode I: The Phantom Menace (boring other than darth maul)
7. Episode VII: The Force Awakens (starts off okay, then devolves into mindless idiocy)
8. Episode II: Attack of the Clones (main character, anakin, is a complete tool)

I'm already set to see the new film three times. Friday by myself, Saturday with my dad and his friend, and then again when my aunt sees it sometime over Christmas break.

This is normal for me.
Well, it was better than The Force Awakens, though that's not saying much.

I'd rank this movie alongside Batman v Superman: It's a stupid movie but there are some really cool scenes in it that are worth watching even if the rest of the movie is bleh.
So uh is there any particular reason the writers threw in like 5 scenes that would've been great sendoffs for Leia and either BS'd her out of it or put someone else in to die instead

Particularly that one where the writers suddenly decided she could use the force to fly through space
Right? That was so confusing.
If they didn't use Leia for it, they also could have just replaced Vice Admiral Holdo with Admiral Ackbar and made the whole hyperspace suicide jump cooler, but I guess we're supposed to care more about this random purple hair lady than the cool fishman we all know and love? Come on.

Also, I'm mad that they actually made me like Snoke and then killed him off. C'mon, guys, he was hilarious. You killed off the only character who was actually funny and gave us more stupid BB-8 humor instead.
Tbh I didn't care for Holdo at all, yeah I get they're trying to develop Poe into being less reckless and more responsible but having him be taught leadership by a woman who's absolutely awful at being a leader is just dumb. I get the whole "don't question your superiors" thing but crap lady, your army is reduced to 400 demoralized people stuck on one cruiser, most of them on the verge of mutiny, and as far as any of them can tell you don't have a plan and you're just content to keep going until your fuel runs out and everyone dies. Yeah Poe's plan was a pretty dumb gambit, but it wouldn't have happened if you had actually bothered communicating with people instead of telling them to fuck off

The hyperspace ram was an amazing visual scene but shoving her in there instead of Ackbar or Leia removed any real emotional impact

Also even with up close and personal time with Snoke we still don't know anything about him, why you do this writers

I thoroughly enjoyed myself today, and am looking forward to tomorrow.
hey this is a movie i saw

im not really sure why everyone hates this so much; i thought the beginning was kinda meh but overall it was an enjoyable experience with a lot of things i really liked

-god bless adam driver our lord and savior. if TFA made me interested in kylo ren, TLJ confirmed that he's basically the best villain this franchise has ever had and i could watch him for days. though that leads me into
-the whole "join me and together we'll make a new order" or whatever the line was... was just so stupid. god. holy shit
-the "strike me down" line im also kinda eh on, but at the very least it was modified to have actual relevance ("i'll always be with you, like your father")
-she's no adam driver but goddamn daisy ridley is also one of the best actors this series has had
-im glad they went with "your parents are complete nobodies" route because anything else would have felt like a letdown and also would be dumb
-everything with Luke and Rey was great in general and i really liked the lighting in these scenes
-i did NOT like the bigger CGI sequences here. TFA set such a great standard for star wars special effects but here it was always very clear when a person was in front of some kind of green screen. im gonna chalk this one up to bad lighting but it was kinda bad
-the fight sequences themselves, though, except for the first one, are great. Kylo + Rey fighting the first order guys is fucking fantastic holy shit that scene is like the highlight of the movie. finn against phasma was cool too even if... phasma still had no point whatsoever being in this movie?? oh well. and the final fight was awesome too. except...
-why did Luke have to astral project himself if he were going to die anyway? i guess he has a good laugh at kylo being so dumb but like. he didn't actually change anything? nonetheless seeing him die was p cool
-this movie might have my favorite final shot of any star wars movie. it's just so inspirational and powerful
-in general this movie has some really interesting ideas regarding living up to legends/how we look at the past/fanboyism in general, and also what heroism means.
-leia force floating back is... pretty dumb but whatever
-yeah holdo is kinda. a dumb character
-that scene of the star destroyers exploding is fucking amazing though
-why was blue/green milk in this movie lol
-i think Rose is a great character though it's a shame they forced her to kiss finn. i hope we see more of her
-the finn/rose plot was... pretty dragged out
-i still don't really have any feelings towards Poe one way or another
-i like how half of this movie is literally Battlestar Galactica
-the yoda scene was tbh rather well done. i love how yoda is a complete troll in it, and that he looked like a puppet
-hot damn the red salt is great to look at. god bless
-porgs were... ok. im sad chewie didn't eat the porg. they weren't TOO in your face but also... they didn't need to be in the movie at all??
-why was bb-h8 here too. like what was his purpose again
After walking of of the theater, I had a feeling this film would divisive. And based on comments I've been reading, that was definitely the case. I personally really liked it. My biggest issue with The Force Awakens was how same-y it felt. This was breath of fresh air and was an enjoyable, albeit slightly too long, journey.

I felt like all the characters really grew from Episode VII. Finn had his character arc culmination with him defeating Captain Phasma, Poe maturing and likely being set up to take command of the whole Resistance come Episode IX, I liked Rey's struggle and that her parents were actually complete nobodies. And Hux continues to be an absolute treat.

But I really, really liked Kylo Ren and Luke. Kylo really evolved as a character in this film. I went into this movie anticipating more buildup for Snoke, but in the end, he didn't really matter. He was there to develop Kylo. I really like him becoming the Supreme Leader. I am very glad he hasn't been redeemed, at least not yet. I was worried they were gonna go down that path, but I love where they took him.

And Luke. I've heard that Mark Hamill had disagreements on the direction they took the character, but I have to disagree. Luke is one of my favorite Star Wars characters and I loved the direction they took him. A big theme of this film is failure. Every major character fails at some point. Rey fails to turn Kylo, Finn and Rose's mission ultimately fails, Poe has a whole bunch of failures, and Luke failed in the past as a master. It makes total sense for him to be a bitter, dismissive hermit, especially after everything that happened. And that's why I absolutely adored the scene with Yoda. First of all, puppet Yoda is best Yoda, so that was a welcome return. And second, I loved the line about their fate as "masters" and about failure being a great teacher. That scene felt like pure Yoda.

Other stand out things include the hyperspace kamikaze attack. My jaw dropped in the theater. What a fantastic scene. I also really liked the Luke and R2 reunion. For a moment, Luke's mannerisms and speaking style hearkened back to the OT. I also really liked him playing the Leia message.

Speaking of Leia, I think the flying space Leia scene may have been the worst part of the movie. It was very goofy and out of place.

All in all, I can see why some won't like this movie, even if I disagree. Anyway, I'm probably gonna see it again very soon.
I just want to say I find it appropriate that the most divisive Star Wars film is the one with a planet literally made of salt
some more thoughts:

I remember thinking when The Force Awakens came out that this movie would probably confirm TFA's status as a great movie because more context had been given, and I definitely feel that's the case. TFA is very similar to ANH in many ways, but that's kinda the point; everyone in that movie was looking towards the past as a sort of legend to live up to, and that theme is expounded in greatly in TLJ. and in many ways I feel like these movies serve as a meta narrative commentary on the legacy of star wars itself and it's something I really like

what I also really adore about these new movies is they feel the most emotionally engaging of the star wars films in the original trilogy I watch because I want to see the heroes overcome the empire but here I watch because I'm genuinely invested in the fates of the characters
Luke projecting himself didn't really need to happen although it gave a logical explanation for him to survive getting shot 50 thousand so im ok with that

+++its a Star Wars movie, which makes the film good

++salt porn
++cute porgs
++BB-8 is cool
++shirtless Kylo
++R2 cussing is now canon
++compelling milk origin story
++random ass bitch, whose hair was probably only purple to make her memorable, died

+classic Yoda
+Luke's humor
+every fight scene
+Obie Wan message
+code breaker pointing out not everyone is binary
+Snoke got his ass destroyed and Ren taking his place. makes a more interesting story than repeating "apprentice repents and saves the galaxy"

---not an original trilogy Star Wars movie, which make the film bad

--useless Porgs
--Admiral Rektbar
--pointless Phasma
--BB-8 has no reason to exist and replace R2

-Leia didn't use random unnecessary floating ability to do anything relevant. just kill her off geez
-Finn x Rose, why is this thing? they would've been better off as close friends. seriously you you had the inspiring "we'll win by saving what we love, not destroying what we hate" scene and you completely blew it by having them kiss out of nowhere. didn't even occur to me didn't even occur to me they're supposed to be romantically infatuated. the next episode will probably feature a stupid love triangle Rey/Finn/Rose
Alright, I said I wasn't gonna watch The Last Jedi, but my dad offered to take us so I figured why not.
Better than The Force Awakens for sure. Too early for me to tell whether its a great film or just alright, but I certainly enjoyed it.
I like how it didn't go the completely obvious route of Kylo Ren joining the good guys against The First Order. I would have just called it quits on the new Star Wars if that happened.
BB-8 is still cool.
I like the new Rose character. I figure some people will be mad about when she kissed Finn. Whatever, it's not like that completely negates her whole purpose and turns her into just Finn's love interest. She won me over well before that scene, so one kiss isn't gonna bother me.
Luke was great in it. Good to see he was smarter than the Jedi Council from the prequels and actually tried to kill the now evil Ben. Yeah, he failed, but it was worth a try.
Seeing Yoda again was pretty cool. My dad actually told me before the movie started that he wouldn't like the movie unless Yoda was in it, so it was nice seeing his face when Yoda came on.
Mostly, I like how this isn't just a retelling of The Empire Strikes Back like I thought it would be.

Now for the stuff that kinda rubbed me the wrong way.
Leia force floating isnt bad or anything, just kinda silly.
RIP Admiral Cuckbar, if only he knew Force Float, we wouldnt have to put up with Pink Hair Bitch (see below).
The owls were just kinda there, didn't really do anything.
No In Memory for Kenny Baker, the little guy in the Star Wars costume for the first 6?
Snoke died, that stinks, he was really building himself up as a big threat. Oh well.
also captain shiny, good character gone to waste in both the last film and this one

and certainly my least favorite part was pink hair bitch. I hated her character, I hated the lack of buildup she was given, I hated how it feels we're supposed to know who she is. although i do like when she killed herself to save the resistance and the rest of the movie.

now my only question is how theyre going to kill off leia for the ninth movie? and where the heck is lando?

From TV Tropes, to answer your question:
After the backlash Rogue One got for its Uncanny Valley inducing attempts to digitally recreate the likenesses of Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher, and also out of respect for Fisher's passing in late 2016, Lucasfilm has made it clear that they will not attempt to digitally recreate Fisher's likeness or performance for Episode IX.
As for my own thoughts, I enjoyed the film, though there are a few things I did not like:
• Snoke getting killed off too soon, and not in a good way either. Same also applies to Captain Phasma.
• The admiral with purple hair wasn't introduced well considering her position within the resistance, and didn't get the screentime needed. At least she made an awesome heroic sacrifice.
• The cannon late in the film was mentioned to be a mini Death Star in terms of firepower, yet it only punched a tiny hole into that big door? WHAT?!?
• Didn't Poe and Rey already introduce each other in the previous film?
With broom boy at the end, they could be setting up for a time skip. If that's the case, she'll probably die between the two movies.

As for Snoke, I was fine with him being killed off because it progressed Kylo's character arc. And we avoided the ROTJ retread that we could have gotten in IX.
So first of all, me before watching this:

Yeah, you know, I like Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Han Solo, but I don’t think anyone really stands out to me... or something like that.

After watching this:

Yeah, you know, I like Kylo Ren.

So as far as I can say, I loved this movie and it now takes the place of my favorite Star Wars movie, a title previously held by RoTS. Many reasons:

•The deep story. Even though I gotta admit some deaths were pretty bad.
•Luke’s humor.
•Holdo dies (yeah I hated her she was pointless anyway and I was like just do a favor to all of us and f*ckin die.)
•Aside Holdo, the new characters looked as a cool addition to the series.
•I actually liked Rey this time around.
•Kylo Ren is just officially my favorite Star Wars character thanks to this movie.
•Poe is way better here too, he looked kinda insignificant in TFA.
•Yoda. And his appearance also may lead to say more ghosts like Obi-wan or maybe even Anakin as in how he appears in the end of RoTJ may potentially appear in later movies. I even feel Luke’s gonna appear as a ghost in the next movie.

Now there were some flaws:

•Holdo before she dies.
•It was a shame Phasma died, she could’ve gotten a bigger role, but oh well.
•At many times I’d think Kylo would convert to the good side, and that confusion really bugs me.
•Ackbar died, just when I was like "Hey look he’s still alive!"
•I’m gonna see some Rose x Finn ships now.
•The situation seemed many times hopeless, and I don’t like that kind of building up tension.

But despite these flaws, the movie still stands out to me. It’s just that great.
I just saw it for the third time.

This doesn't really have anything to do with the film, but holy smokes, the couple in front of me would not be quiet! Good thing I've seen the film more than once lol.
