    You know what I mean by that. The fact that this purple haired commander that is so unremarkable that I didn't even get her name while watching the movie, who was never introduced before and served no purpose besides putting Poe in his place and telling him literally to trust in her plan, which she never explained and which seemed nonexistent, got so much screentime in which she did nothing. This was either incredibly bad and unlogical storytelling or served as a way to push the "the force is female" agenda by writing in seemingly powerful female characters that put men in their place. I can't think of any other good reason why this part of the film exists. But if you have another explanation for this, please, enlighten me.

    That's very well made, it's fan-made right? I'd never seen it before, it pretty much summarizes the whole story and doesn't seem like a trailer.

    I've had a few days to think about the movie. It's honestly in my top4.

    The die hard fans who went to see it first night liked it? Shocking. The same thing was said regarding TLJ and we see how that turned out.

    Yeah, conveniently ignore the rest of my comment, where I explain my problem with the character.
    And btw: giant fish beats purple haired lady because there are already too many humans in Star Wars. He was the only nonhuman, living character in the Rebellion besides Chewbacca, or am I wrong?

    To be fair, that's completely acceptable. Every significant weapon in the Star Wars universe is energy based, so reasonably they'd design their armor to resist energy-based weapons. Even worse, they're all really slow energy weapons at that, so there's not even much kinetic energy behind them (seriously, they travel less than 80 miles per hour in the majority of cases, certainly with blasters).

    A single arrow would have no trouble defeating armor not designed for ballistic attacks. And God forbid anyone pull out a revolver let alone a minigun or something. They'd rule the galaxy with that sort of (comparatively) super tech.

    It's kind of like how they apparently never developed decent monitors, seeing as how the few screens we do ever see are just vector images, and why they rely on shitty holograms as well. Take a smartphone and a M-16 to the Star Wars galaxy to reverse engineer and you'd be the richest mother fucker in all the systems.

    It shows how 1-6 is a cohesive story and 7-9 feel like tacked-on garbage.

    Cool story? I was a die hard fan until the shittiness of TLJ.

    The point was you can't make a claim that that a movie is good based on night one crowds.

    Just saw it, did not annoy me as mutch as I thought it would.
    Still it is one of the worst Star Wars movies but it’s above TLJ but it also breaks a lot of lore.

    Things that made little to no sense for me, a Death Star that has been blown up in a sea? Did they forget that nothing was left after the blow or that it is as big as a planet itself?
    Palpatine alive when he clearly died... they never explain on what way.
    Trying to run Rey over with a spaceship that has canons and lasers? Is he retarted?
    Force ghosts can still interact with the real world.
    Luke ofc getting even in a flashback his ass kicked by a girl.
    Palpatine can lightning bolt a full fleet of spaceships, he could had won in episode 6 by himself never needed a Death Star.
    Oyeah, Palpatine lightning can stop a whole spaceship fleet but two lightsabers can stop it.
    Count Dooku stops his lightning attack when it is not working on Yoda, well Palpatine keeps going till he dies from his own attack and this should be the mastermind that took over the rule in the universe?
    Kinda destroys Rogue one since they needed a lot of crystals for the Death Star weapon well now all final order spaceships have the Death Star weapon.
    Rey stealing the Skywalker name fucking lame. Don’t let the title fool you all skywalkers die their is no rise of Skywalker they all die in the end.
    The skywalkers did never bring balance in the force since Rey is still alive. So if we go with Disney lore then a new Sith should now be born somewhere to counter the light side of Rey.
    General Hux is a rebel spy??? Did they forget there own movie where he is doing his nazi speech and gives the order to blow up all the republic planets.
    Luke his x wing needed repairs in episode 5 after it got in the swamp, well not in this movie it’s fine after being under water for like 20 years...
    Palpatine made the biggest fleet the universe ever saw? Where did the resources or troops come from? And nobody known about this on what way? Atleast in episode 2 they explain the clone troopers and on what way the army was created this time around nothing they are just there.
    Force healing is made out to be the easiest thing for a Jedi it has been thrown around like its nothing...


    It is like the creators never saw the originals or prequels, Anakin downfall was that he as the most powerfull Jedi ever and had all the access of all the Jedi knowledge did not had the power to safe the one he loved. Well this movie makes him look like a stupid weak fool since everybody can do it.

    Anyways I still ignore the Disney trilogy and don’t consider them part of Star Wars just some wierd offspring series.
    But I have to say I can rewatch this movie unlike TLJ what just pisses me of by just thinking about it.

    I don't get how 'casual fans' like most SW movies.

    Not sure how you can be a 'die hard' and say TLJ was the one that killed it for you. It's not the best but there are worst SW films.

    Ah, I see. You lack the mental capacity to comprehend more than one sentence at a time. That explains your poor judgement of TLJ.

    Seriously, stop trolling and:

    No, death star was blown up in space. But the debris later fell down... Logic, use it.
    Why? Maul was cut in half and fell down that giant hole and he survived.
    If you saw the movie he never tried to kill her, having that said it was a weird thing to do just to get a "cool" scene.
    Well tell that to every adopted kid. Also Luke and Leia gave their aproval so no real stealing going on there...
    Agree, but they are strong in the force, also Emperor palp said something at the end when he absorbed their force that they were both special. Hence why he wanted both of them there.

    My thought on the movie after a few days:

    Best in the new trilogy, fourth best overall. it felt like Star Wars, which TLJ did not do, but at the same time it felt fresh in a way that TFA didn't.

    I like how they pulled a lot from the extended universe, such as Palpatine being alive and force healing being a thing (you can really tell who is a true fan, and not just someone who has only seen the movies, when someone claims "How is he alive?!?" and "The force can't heal!").

    Star Wars has always been "anime in space", since it's more like fantasy rather than scifi. I mean, we are talking about a series who's most iconic characters are space wizards with magical powers. Therefore I thought it was a little strange with the whole teleportation thing, but at the same time we've seen far stranger things that the force is capable of in the books and games.

    The space battle was epic, light sabers were cool and there was a ton of action.

    Two things I didn't like were that the ending felt a bit rushed, it could've used another half hour or so. Second thing is that since it neatly knit everything together, it's gonna be difficult to use material from it in new books and games. At the same time, though, that gives the authors and developers far more freedom than they ever had in telling stories set after the movie, which is good.

    Dare I hope that one of the next movies is about the Yuuzhan Vong war? That would be epic

    I enjoyed my time with the movie. Some small things I was annoyed by, but as a whole it's on a solid fourth place among all movies, behind Empire, Revenge and A New Hope

She may have some blame in not forcing a collaboration between the directors, but the directors knew each other and also didn't try and collaborate with each other.

    But blaming her for the shitty writing is hilarious, at best.
    She's the one who hires the writers, directors etc. and dictates their course much like how she was one who kicked Lord and Miller because they weren't towing the company line. In other words yeah she bears a lot of the responsibility here.

    Holdo existed to stand against poe and make you question rather the gun hoe main a character that all Starwars movies have is always right. Though out all of the movies the main characters always act head strong and think on the fly and it always works out for them holdo is there to show that it’s not always the best thing to do while also being a flawed character who’s own mistrust of poe leads him to fall into the normal role which ends poorly for the residence.

    Every thing about her is meant to make you want to distrust her and be on Poe’s side just to point out that characters like poe don’t always win soloy due to there grit and gumption. She worked so well at that roll that instead of seeing the obvious people made her into some pro feminist boogie man even though she’s no different then any other character in the movie and her own short comings leads to disaster just as much as poe’s

    So pretty much you missed the point.

    No he made an objectively bad movie even ignoring the property it's attached to. It's a bloated mess of a movie. Adding on the star wars aspects it creates massive plotholes and doesn't follow in universe rules.
