My second most anticipated film of all time (first being The Force Awakens which IS a great film). Can’t wait to see these characters again!

Absolutely beyond epic. Wonderful character moments, great (actually, GREAT) action scenes and some true surprises in the script. Might be the best SW since Empire. 10/10.

The great thing about episode 8 is every time you thought something was going to happen or you thought you knew how a scene was gonna go down, it went the totally opposite way! And it brought so many unique aspects to the Star Wars Universe. Best Star Wars movie since Empire Strikes Back.

The Last Jedi is such a mixed bag with a lot good. Yet, them crapping on what made Luke great really really hurts the overall rating...

The most disappointing experience of my life. Story is uneventful and incoherent. It’s convoluted, yet all the subplots aren’t interesting. Characters have no development and it’s such a shame since they were so great in the previous film. It doesn’t take any risks despite areas where risks could’ve been taken. It’s the first SW movie where the scenery isn’t breathtaking. Hell, the planets, creatures and sets are boring. Most of all, it’s soulless. The action isn’t a consequence of the story, the story is a consequence of the action. Yet the action is lacklustre anyway. Hope it doesn’t damage my views on the Force Awakens which is consistent and does focus on character development and emotion while also being visually beautiful. 4/10.

3/10*. And it’s the worst Star Wars movie because at least the prequels had a vision and some coherency.

I think that Last Jedi has the best character development in any Star Wars movie! Not just one character is focused in on, but Rey, Kylo, Poe and Luke's characters are so well developed in ways that we've never seen in any other movie! And it's so deep! So character development was definitely a strength here and was so unpredictable!

*Spoilers*

It has no character development. Rey starts off wanting guidance and help from Luke then is pushed to the side for most of it. Kylo's character goes too back and forwards. It also bothered me that he killed Snoke, fought the guards with Rey AND THEN becomes evil again making that entire scene dissatisfying. Poe is an unlikeable Han Solo rip-off that goes nowhere. Luke is ruined by having him attempt to kill Kylo in training. Luke's motivation was interesting but there was nothing more to him than that. It’s also not deep. Story was weak, characters were simple, there was no emotional attachment, no deep themes and no deep conflict. It wasn’t unpredictable at all and when there were surprising moments, I was angry about the execution. The mockery of the force, the execution in answering the mysteries of the Force Awakens and how once Luke actually died I didn’t care because it was so poorly handled. The writers had no guts. When a ship explodes with main characters in it; KILL THEM OFF. When a main character tries sacrificing themselves for the good of the galaxy; KILL THEM OFF. Instead, three small and forgettable background characters die in very dissatisfying conclusions.

***Major Spoilers***

I understand your points especially the Leia scene, which I think was the worst part of the movie. That being said, force bonding between Rey and Kylo!! Never have we've seen dark and light work together until that Snoke scene, and never has the line between the light and dark been this convoluted in Star Wars!! As for Poe, the best part is that his and Finn's plan fail!! Rarely do you ever see an entire subplot that is developed for a large portion of the movie, just fail! Totally unpredictable, and you saw the change in Poe's character as he chose to back down during the battle on Crait, putting him in a better position to be a quality leader of the rebellion going forward. Also, Kylo never used light to kill Snoke. Snoke was right in saying Kylo had no conflict in him, he was totally darkside. He just wanted full control unlike his grandfather did, hence the mask crushing scene! Great Character development there!! But I agree with you that they missed the perfect opportunity to kill off a major character.

****** Major major spoilers ******

I was hoping that Rey and Kylo were going to create a new order that was going to balanced the force but the writers pussied out because having a war and no grey area is more important than pushing a story into risktaking areas. As I said, Kylo going evil immediately after killing Snoke and fighting the guards makes that scene uncompelling from both a storytelling and emotional standpoint.

Yes, Poe's plan failed, but why doesn’t anyone tell them the plan instead of putting the entire resistance at fate? And why is Laura Dern promoted in Leia's absence? Who is she? Why didn’t they keep Ackbar alive instead of killing off screen? And the mutually part of the film goes nowhere so why write it in? So many questions that can only be answered by "oh, because without it we won’t have a film" which is just bad writing so matter how you look at it. Last Jedi is just one "oh, because without it we won’t have a film" circumstance after another which is why I hate it!

Kylo's character confused me. You say he was completely on the darkside and had the evil in him yet a lot of both Force Awakens and Last Jedi he had a lot of conflict in him, yet because it feels like he’s character is just going back and forwards, his struggle is pointless. Why have a struggle and have him fight with Rey to bring balance just not to commit to it? Even Rey is a poor character in this film. She had a solid arc in the last film but she could already do everything with the force. This means the strength of her character only relied on 1. Her relationship with Kylo. 2. Her relationship with Luke (a subplot that goes nowhere). 3. Who her parents are (which annoyed me as well). But since all of these are resolved before the last third of the film she had nothing to do. It even felt apparent to me as I was watching The last third since Rey was barely included in it and was pushed to the background besides lifting the rocks. I think not commenting to follow through with a character IS NOT character development or progession. I did liked the mask cushing scene, though, I will give you that.

*spoiler-free review* I think the movie does a good job of subverting the viewer's expectations of the plot and the characters in the movie. That being said, after seeing Luke's reaction at the end of The Force Awakens, how could someone not anticipate what he would be like at the beginning of this movie? Especially when the audience knows his history with Kilo. There's a large portion of fans who are disappointed with that direction, but characters are more interesting when act more "human". After hearing how they extended Poe's role in the last film and subsequently in this film, I feel the writers scrambled to find something for him to do. Some of this character's subplot, (and especially Finn's adventure) seemed messy and unnecessary to expand their character or the larger story. I would say my biggest disappointment is with Finn's adventure. It seemed only there to give him something to do. I have a theory that Finn's role may have originally been Poe's role, before JJ Abrams decided to keep Poe's character from TFA. Or Finn's subplot was a way to introduce a new character the creators felt the saga needed. If that subplot was taken out, I think the movie would have been better served overall, although I would have been disappointed to see less Finn. Other than those misgivings, I think this is another well crafted Star Wars film. Rey and Kilo's story is the high point, and is a great compliment to what was begun in TFA. Some of the action is breathtaking and fun to watch. I highly recommend viewers see TFA before seeing this movie, otherwise, nothing will make any sense. I thought there was too much fan service in TFA, so I favor this movie slightly over the last. I want to see it one more time to temper my initial impressions, but currently, I would give this film a '9' out of 10, and it will most likely be in my top 200 out of 1140 Flickchart list.

Well, The Last Jedi does as much good as it does bad. Completely 50/50. Yet the 50% bad hurts. Ruining Luke is just wrong wrong wrong.

I understand why fans don't like the Luke in this movie. Think of it this way. Luke was the golden boy of the original trilogy, kinda like a Superman. Perfect, with very little flaws. This movie introduced the fact that maybe Luke is not perfect and maybe he makes mistakes like the rest of us. He is disappointed with himself over what happened and closes himself off like many of us would after a failure in our lives. The best characters in a story should be like a roller-coaster. There will be up's and downs. Luke is confronted by a several characters throughout the film that give him his confidence back. Without Luke's journey, the audience wouldn't get the payoff these scenes present (not saying which two characters, but one of them actually explains why Luke's journey was essential as a Master). I think Luke's scenes near the end of the film mean so much more because of where his character has been (mindset). Sometimes a hero needs to fall or loose their footing along the way for their journey to be more rewarding when they triumph in the end.

Luke made mistakes in the OT. In Empire specifically he doesn't listen to Yoda and goes off to confront Vader half-cocked, which very nearly ends in disaster. Leia (in my opinion) should have been the one with the arc as she had the least growth of the trio in the OT. Instead Han got reverted back to his old self and Luke loses his faith so that they can both learn lessons that they've already learned.
