    Well said!

    'Last Jedi' Grosses Are Collapsing With The Worst Daily Holds Of All 9 Star Wars Movies

    Even Attack of the Clones looks like a champ in comparison.
    Still standing behind Rian Johnson, are we?

    Coruscant, Tatooine, Dagobah, oh yeah we're all flying back home to safety in Ep. 9, kids!

    For the lulz!

    Also-also, keep in mind that Solo: A Star Wars Story drops this coming May 25, 2018. So I'm ready to take my lumps if that flick tanks!

    A lot of that 'meeting' was probably similar to the Episode IV meeting (the weird stuff, not the cannon stuff).

    I also figured Kylo was probably lying to Rey.

    But yeah, that video pretty much sums up all the low points. When you look at it like that. Yeah, doesn't seem so good.

    It's strange seeing so many people, Mark Hamill included, saying that a Jedi would never give up and go into seclusion. Isn't that exactly what Yoda did, the Jedi that Luke spent the most amount of time with?

Luke's outlook was my indication of just how corrupt and unredeemable he considered Ben, but I think your opinion is just as valid.

    In the end, Luke refused to kill Vader partially because he had the emperor behind him provoking him, making it pretty clear whose side that kill would be helping.

    Conversely, Luke only thought of killing Ben for a split second. Unfortunately it was a very bad split second in a very bad place.
    Yep they made it, they sold it -- they might as well embrace it in Ep IX.

    Thursday provided a positive bounce up for TLJ -- $17.9 milly. But TFA made $27.4 mil on the same day for comparison.

    This weekend will be a bit shorter with Christmas Eve on Sunday so all movies will have a bit subdued totals. Probably won't get back to normalcy until after New Year's Day.

    Star Wars fans be like:

    Episode VIII was great except for the Force and Casino stuff

    Episode VII was great except for being too much like Episode IV

    The prequels were terrible

    The original trilogy was great except for the remakes

    Return of the Jedi was great except for the Ewoks stuff

    ...etc.

    I wonder how many people complained when Darth Vader, who had shown zero compassion or humanity outside of rage and a thirst for power, decided to become good at the very end.

    I wonder how many people complained that we were never given a single hint about who Luke & Leia's mother was, and no character ever seemed to question it or care about it.
    No one.
    It's a contemporary thing to whine about everything and to overanalyze movies and tv series.
    Look the shit we had with Lost and Westworld... blah.

    Someone pointed something out that I hadn't thought of RE: the controversial Leia scene.
    Spoiler:
    We see Leia "flying", but isn't she just pulling herself in a vacuum towards the ship? It's nearly the same as seeing Rey or anyone else pull a small/light object towards them on the ground, just that Leia moves instead of the ship (or realistic physics would say they're both moving, just that Leia's moving far more to keep the same F=m*a between them).
    Get that weak shit off my track

    That's how I saw Leia scene.
    Spoiler:
    I never thought she was really Mary Poppinsing it and "flying". Despite the uncanny resemblance.

    Though technically, 'flying' should be possible, and not that difficult for someone like a Skywalker (maybe that name.....). Afterall, like you say F=ma. Newton's third law and all. Obviously a lightsaber has m way less than a human, so it moves alone. But if you want to apply that same force to a planet, you'd move instead. Then again, Vader throws dudes around without having to anchor himself,
    so I think Newtonian physics are kinda moot.
