Re:


Oh and I have to [sign in to see URL] think "The Force Awakens" harks to the fact that the Force already exists in people, they just need to learn to tap into it. I had no problem with Rey being able to do that quicker than Luke had, I don't think it took away from anything.

Re:


I agree, I think Luke had it just as much as Rey and vise versa. Luke was just stubborn and did not believe.

Re: Star Wars - The Force Awakens


I just finally saw Rogue One and I'll comment it here since I already have talked about all other films here.

(I'm posting this same thing on several boards, but what the heck.)


IMO Rogue One is the best Star Wars since Return of the Jedi.

RO does have couple major faults though. It is simply too dark and tragic (and you don't hear that from me often), compared to the general tone of the franchise/universe. It is also too filled with inside jokes and references, that distracts from following this story.
Also this lacks the kind of standout, super-great characters. There's a long list of good four star characters, fine all-round quality, but there's no Yoda/Boba Fett/Darth... well, yes, there actually is Vader himself, but aside the end he's not much there. And on similar note, Tarkin was kind of wasted; he doesn't do anything brilliant or cool, just hangs in the back to remind how this is so absolutely connected to Episode IV.

All that said, definitely better than prequel trilogy or Episode VII (which I'm not a fan of).

Thanks for the review K. I've been curious about it. I'll have to check it out.

Re: Star Wars - The Force Awakens


Planning to see VIII soon, I watched VII and RO again (3rd and 2nd time respectively).

VII does get better (or less annoying) the more times you see it, while RO wasn't as exciting to see for a second time.
But I still think RO is the best SW film since original trilogy (as one film; as part of series it's kind of unnecessary) and VII doesn't rise above the prequels.

With the further viewings, I've come to dislike Finn. He is too much like some action comedy character of Chris Tucker or Chris Rock. I hope he'll be more serious in VIII.

Re: Star Wars - The Force Awakens


I saw The Last Jedi tonight.

If you're avoiding (mild) SPOILERS below, I'll just say I very much liked it.













































Right from beginning TLJ gives off the idea that like TFA generally copied story of the original first Star Wars film, this is going to follow the pattern of Empire Strikes Back. But actually TLJ covers both ESB and Return of the Jedi, borrowing elements and event from them - however doing it in much more elegant and subtle way than TFA.

I disliked TFA for being "stupid" movie (and I'm not sure there's need for those quotes). Similarly I like TLJ for being "intelligent". It has plot twists and many moments where you really can't tell is he/she going to die, which way is this going to go.

Those who hate TLJ most criticize that it doesn't build on TFA, use it. When you start to analyze that, it's quite true that many mysteries of TFA were ignored. But enjoyed watching TLJ, forgetting the whole disappointing previous film.
Maybe TLJ is better as individual film than part of the whole (something you can't say about any SW film since the original).

I would call TLJ a mix of Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. And while I thought RO was best SW film since the original trilogy, I would go even further now and say that this competes for 3rd place with Return of the Jedi.
