    RETURN OF THE SITH
    Darth Plagueis creates a Force Ghost converter machine that converts Jedi force ghosts into living Dark Jedi (think Ghostbusters in Space.)
    Yoda, Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi all return as Dark Jedi.
    Dark Yoda is red, not green.
    Anakin tells Kylo Ren he's just a simile. Enraged, Kylo Ren turns back to Ben Solo and battles Anakin.
    Mace Windu and Dark Yoda confront Lando Calrissian and the Resistance.
    Chewbacca tries to reason with dark Yoda. "MRGGRRLLL!!!" Dark Yoda cannot be reasoned with, and force pulls a moon on top of Chewbacca, crushing him.
    Mace Windu is about to kill Lando when The Mandalorian cuts off his head, and throws him out a window. Mando says "that was for Jango."
    Dark Obi-Wan battles Rey while Anakin battles Ben.
    At one point, they switch adversaries, and Rey battles Anakin and Ben battles Ben in a battle of Bens.
    Plagueis says his Force Ghost Converter Machine will soon be re-programmed into a Sith Lord Resurrection Machine so he can bring back Darth Bane and other notable Sith Lord legends.
    Rey defeats Dark Obi-Wan, while Ben defeats Anakin after cutting off his right hand (or left?)
    Plagueis entices Ben to kill off Anakin and return to The Dark Side.
    Rey pleads with Ben not to. Ben throws aside his light saber and says Plagueis has lost, he is a Jedi, like his grandfather before him.
    Plagueis begins to Force Lightning Rey and Ben.
    Anakin, conflicted, snaps back to The Light Side, picks up Plagueis and chucks him into The Sith Lord Resurrection Machine just as it was resurrecting Darth Bane--who is halfway resurrected and a pair of legs.
    Plagueis explodes, and Anakin dies in Ben and Rey's arms.
    Rey takes the Skywalker name before marrying Ben, and then takes the Solo name.
    The final shot is Rey and Ben holding their son, Anakin Yoda Ben Jr. Skywalker Solo. In a future movie, he will say "I AM ALL THE JEDI!"

    An after credits scene says Star Wars will return in 2023 with Kevin Feige at the helm.

    No Baby Yoda vs evil Baby Yoda fight where they force throw toys at each other. 0/10

    And don't forget the explosion puts Bane's legs in an unseen Bacta tank to keep them fresh until his robot top half is finished.

    Left that out. Baby Yoda melts Dark Yoda's dark icy heart with a cool island song and puppy dog eyes.

    Or is that a warm island song?

    First time luke touched a light saber he looked like a complete moron trying to light it up even though he had a person explain it to him and his first training sessions were a mess being able to use the force in a very basic way (untill he got to lifting the ship after initially failing).
    First time rey used the force she mind tricked a stormtrooper and first time she used a lightsaber she beat a wounded well trained dark side user.
    People dont care about Rey being a woman. Daisy is a fine actor. People care that the character is written like shit.
    You guys are really sad. Like, it's hard to read this shit.

    I said one thing about Rey and now you're saying that I hate my own gender and race.

    Think about that. Seriously. This is pathetic. Do you hang out on 4chan all day?

    Flaming isn't allowed. Infracted.

    You threw out sexist in seconds as a counter argument to film criticism.

    Think about that. Seriously.

    You didnt say one thing about Rey. You generalized and said that everyone who says shes a Mary Sue is sexist. Similarly to the type of people I m talking about.
    Then you said people ignored that Luke is a Mary Sue and when people argue about it you dont even have anything to argue with.

    No no. You chill his hot heart with a cool island song.

    Also, edit for Bane's legs.

    Show me where I said I hate my gender and race.

    The way you're stereotyping would be like me just calling you a skinhead who watches Sargon and listens to Richard Spencer. Or is that pretty accurate?

    Show us how Luke is overpowered since you made the argument.

    And you do. Hence why you went straight to calling people sexist and toxic.

The truth is, the Force works in mysterious ways and some people are just naturally talented.
    I always love reading this argument because the people using it are being completely disingenuous and are really just trying to deflect criticism off of female characters. They ignore that Anakin being the chosen one gives his character a little bit of leeway on being OP, not to mention he is an emotionally unstable mass murderer. They ignore that Luke is carried through his entire first movie until the last moment where he finally get a chance to shine. His over confidence constantly got him in trobule requiring other characters to step in and save him. On top of that it plays off the assumption that no one has ever called the male characters on being "mary sues". I wasn't around for ANH when it came out so I can't comment on Luke but when TPM came out me and my friends all talked about how ridiculous it was that Anakin was able to do half the stuff he did in that movie.

    Are you talking when he blew up the Death Star? If you are there is a reason people accept it, because the movie set everything up to make it happen and not make it seem ridiculous over the top. From his back story giving him the required experience to Obi-Wan giving him the little bit of training he required to push him over the edge. The film also showed us a none force sensitive character almost making the same shot to show it wasn't a completely over the top achievement.

    Great! Looking forward to tonight even more!
    I was told this kind of belief didn't really exist on MMO-C. Interesting.

    I won't be able to see the movie for at least 3 weeks so I just decided to check the spoilers, can't be arsed to try to avoid spoilers for that long, it wouldn't be possible anyway.
    Ah, even more interesting, a vocal critic of TLJ is warming up to the idea of this movie.


    From every negative review I've read, they're basically lamenting the lack of vision, the overly safe choices, and the nostalgia/fan service plays that this movie makes. Maybe these are all critics who critically acclaimed TLJ, and wanted to see more of that. I'm super interested now to see how this movie plays with the general public, including those who hated TLJ.

    I've read some of the spoilers too, and at this point, I'm a little de-hyped. I'm on the record saying if they didn't finish the thematic turn of Rey evil, at least temporarily, or if they redeem Kylo, it'd be a 'nah' from me, and it looks like both those things happened.

    So I just have one thing to ask...

    What has been more dissapointing, Game of Thrones season 8 or this movie?

From what I understand, the Whills were basically gods that tried to do good acts. One of them "fell" and became a fallen Whill and that particular one generated the Dark Side of the Force.
    Oh, so a derivative, Biblical story of a fallen angel?

    The Saga ended in back in 1983. This has all just been some poor shitty fanfic epilogue.

    You actually thought she was going dark side for any amount of time and it wasn't a vision so they could put in in the trailer? That's amazing.

    And of course they tried to redeem mass murderer Kylo. It's another beat from the OT. Only more confusing because Rey has zero reason to believe he can be saved.

    Sounds more interesting than "Palpatine is back because!!!"

    This movie neither a train wreck or a dumpster fire: it's a train full of dumpsters that wrecked and caught on fire, next to a waste treatment facility that is now also burning.
    I mean, what does "I am all the sith" even mean... its such an empty phrase.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    I am going to say GoT because I thoroughly enjoyed the early seasons and actually had high expectations for where the series would end up.

    Conversely I had zero expectations this trilogy would be good after The Farce Awakens and even less after The Last Shiti.

    Technically GoT because it had a longer build up to disappointment.
