Even though I was too young my parents took me to see Empire Strikes Back three times, I really had no idea what was going on I guess but I was
enamored with it I was told. It wasn't until a couple years later when it came out on VHS and Return of the Jedi came out(and I was old enough to know
what was going on) that I really started to appreciate the universe and story Lucas had made.
Having just watched the Last Jedi I have to say I feel like I did 38 years ago, I really had no idea what was going on....
Horribly written, full of plot holes, changes the concept of the force as per canon, wrongly timed humour injected, the hilarious Mary Force Poppins
scene, etc. Great specials effects and all but they had a multitude of books, animated series, and videogames to draw off for writing, or even
individual scene ideas and they ignored it all. Now that's fine, but they had better come out with something as good or better right ?
For instance, one of the books I remember reading as a teenager had Luke escaping from a Jedi Trap, he had to "Force Jump" off a wall through an air
lock, use the force to preserve himself through space, and then enter into another airlock. They could have used something like this for Leia instead
of the weirdly shot Mary Poppins scene lol.
Or another example would be the video game Knights of the Old Republic(2003), now that was a plot twist for anyone that remembers it, personally I
was blown away once it dawned on me
Anways, given the garbage I watched from their last movie I will not be going to the Theater to watch what they are calling on Youtube channels
"Soylo". If it's really that bad then I don't care anymore....just go ahead and rename Solo's ship to the "Milennial Falcon" and take it away from me
