    Yeah, I don't get charges of no tension. This movie almost gave me a full-blown panic attack. I was leaning forward for the last 30 or so minutes, terrified, and it was about an hour before I started...

    Whoever made the knife was incredibly optimistic that the storm-crashed wreckage wouldn't shift out of position. And correct. They were also correct.

    IIRC, in TROS, Rey's using the texts, not a journal (or that the journal was one of the texts). I think one of the telling differences between Rian Johnson and JJ Abrams is that, for Johnson, the...

    Rey saved the books at the end of The Last Jedi. You see Finn open a cupboard with them in it as he searches for a blanket for Rose in the final sequence. That's why Yoda very carefully says, "That...

    The OT is one. It had an overarching authorial voice in Lucas, but they didn't even know they were making a trilogy until they wanted to wrap things up after Empire. Sure, Lucas has claimed there was...

    Marc Bernadin rightly pointed out that when Finn asked Jannah why they defected, she should have simply said, "We heard about you."

    I maintain that while the Prequels are Actually Bad, there's a lot of cool aesthetic stuff happening in them, and some great examples of Young George Lucas playing with filmcraft. Attack of the...

    Ehh.

    I can buy that Abrams didn't care for The Last Jedi, and I can also buy compromises along the way, but I find it hard to believe that his immediate and resultant choice was, "I know exactly...

    That is true. I think you're supposed to sort out on your own that there's some sort of cloning backup plan in case he died, there are holistic clues to that effect. But still. (long sigh)

    At this point, I'm glad they never explained it, the explanation would've been just as dry toast as all the exposition in this movie.

    Rey Palpatine really does bother me. It's probably the thing I hate most, even more than the fact that she defeats the Emperor by murdering him. Although that's really close. Mace Windu killing the...

    When Luke tries to convince Han to help in the original film, you see it. Han says no, he packs his money, Chewie gets upset with him, Han insists but you can see the doubt in his face. That's why...

    FWIW, I'm not saying the simple presence of these themes automatically makes it a good film. But for the sake of argument, even if The Last Jedi does fail at that, I'll still take The Last Jedi...

    I think we're in agreement? The Last Jedi burns the shrine but saves the texts, because the film isn't actually about "killing" the past so much as it's about avoiding fetishization, orthodoxy, and...
