That was disappointing.
I'm with you. It was rushed for a while until they made back what story they had to catch up after VIII (like, VIII? What VIII? I mean, they more or less pulled a Highlander III almost pretending the movie before did not exist; I liked how they justified the lack of Holdo manoeuvers before the one) and could go into what was properly Ep IX. It sure could have been more, and better, overall, but I liked it and will see it a second time, then in the english version.I liked it. It was rushed at spots, but overall good. Will post more when I don't have 4 hours until I have to wake up and go to work.
I am also a bit sad that they made Rey be a Palpatine, but if the alternative for generating a super-powerful Jedi is what we got in TPM ("You are JediJesus, born of woman andI am not really a fan of Rey being the granddaughter of Palpatine, but it works in service to the story. I don't have a problem with it and it does explain why she is so powerful. I also like that she adopted the name Skywalker at the end.
The final battle (both on land and in space) was epic and I loved it, even if it was a bit predictable. Everyone knew the good guys would rally and win.
And finally, LEIA. So they had some issues fully integrating what little of Carrie Fisher they had. Body double was obvious and there were scenes where you could tell they essentially gave Leia's dialogue to the other person in the scene. Most notably Rey. "I'll go run the course"/"I'll earn your brother's saber someday." etc. all felt like they should have come from Leia instead of being spoken at her. They did what they could and while not totally happy with it, they did end up giving her the sendoff she deserved.
I was in that exact mood. Which is why I subscribed to Disney+ and started watching The Mandalorian. I'm only 3 episodes in and I'm already hooked and definitely more engaged than I was for 90% of this movie.It was fine. My kid absolutely loved it so a successful Star Wars movie.
I am now ready for new Star Wars adventures that do not rely or need to call back to.... anything.
Hey! A spoiler I hadn't heard yet! Neat!DUDE! WEDGE ANTILLES SHOWED UP!
She didn't destroy them, so you never know...I was disappointed that Rey buried the lightsabers instead of handing one to Finn, and training him.
The answer is hey look, it's Wedge! Remember Wedge? Here's Lando! You like Lando, right? Lap it up you dumb Star Wars nerds and give us your money!Twitter asks a good question, "why did Snoke bother with Starkiller base when his boss/creator had a thousand planet-destroying ships parked in his garage?"
How the hell were they able to fit planet destroying weapons on Star Destroyers anyway? Weren't the Death Stars and Starkiller Base huge because they had to be in order to have planet destroying weapons?
Apparently it's cheaper to drive a planet around than an entire fleet of starships? Why bring out the ExtraSuperMassive weapon if the SuperMassive weapon will do to quash the
