    This sums it up.

    It’s pretty dross.

    I feel like Star Wars has been ruined for me.

    They should have just done Rogue One and fucked Force Awakens and Last Jedi off.

    Luke is so disappointing in the whole film.

    You sort of want to like it but unless you’re part of the Star Wars fanatics who’ve read all the comics, books and watched all of the other spin off stuff then this is just boring pointless dross. I couldn’t even be arsed writing a proper critique as all of the many shit points have already been done. The new films just feel like all new films - throwaway pastimes, nothing classic or timeless about them.

    Agreed.

    I really liked Rogue One. But that’s because they’ve pandered to someone like me who loves the original trilogy.

    The rest of it is garbage. Force awakens was shit and this was even shitter somehow.

    I’m not even convinced that much happened. After waiting years for Luke Skywalker to hit the big screen again, he didn’t do anything.

    He watched the hologram to obi wan from R2 again. I thought it was Oliver Reed until that point.

    I rewatched Force Awakens last night as I got it in 3D, I still like it, the pacing, length etc are spot on, it feels like a Star Wars film and the bit when we first see the Millenium Falcon still gets me as does Han's death. Yes I know it’s a rehash of ANH but I think after the dross of the prequels it’s what everyone wanted, TLJ is just not upto it at all.

    Saw it last night. Im 48 and went to see the original at the cinema in 77. All these follow on films just go to show how difficult it is to follow perfection. I actually enjoyed the film bar the princess leia superman scene. I don't look too deep into these films and just enjoy them at face value. That way I'm never disappointed.
