I recently bought The Last Jedi...not sure exactly why because I said I would not watch that again after what they did to my Hero...but I did rewatch
it last night.
Realized a few things.
1. Rian Johnson was right in what he did...I know, I know but sometimes you have to rip out the past to make way for the new. Pull out the weed so it
2. Rian Johnson was wrong in the execution: You shouldn't have to explain your movie, character motives, plot...that what was done poorly.
This said I got what he was doing to bring balance to the force...think about it each time there is darkness rising as does the light ad
infinitum...so how do you bring balance, maybe this was a poor execution, but if done right it may make sense after the final in this trilogy.
What else would Luke do when he realized once you start to build the light that darkness rises to it...what else would such a failure do to a "man" at
the end of the day he was hero but also just a farm boy who failed not just failed but trained and was creating the next Darth Vader. His KIN, his
Nephew so he should slaughter him? Imagine your depression knowing you were doing such good creating a new Jedi order only to have your star pupil and
family turning to the darkness to kill most of his students, then his father and your best friend...
I am not justifying what Johnson did, nor defending it as I disagree with many, many points but there was much good in that movie and how should the
failure of our Hero be handled? Luke failed miserably, let that sink in and this movie is not for us who grew up but for those still growing who need
to learn a new way of the force...
Yoda really brought it home as to the direction it needs to go. “The greatest teacher, failure is.”
