Alright, so, I decided to scroll back just to see what the general buzz was and I find it hilarious how many people are confused about Darth Maul.

nobody's "confused". dude got cut in half and he fell down a shaft. you don't survive that. it's dumb they brought him back.

$185-195 mil opening weekend is not very good when this is the finale of a trilogy

It's pretty bizarre that every movie in this trilogy has also had a smaller opening than the previous one. That's not what is supposed to happen.

I would also imagine that this movie will have short legs and probably a steep drop after this weekend.

I mean Force Awakens would've easily been the highest grossing movie of all time if China gave a poo poo about Star Wars so that was inevitable.

I honestly didn't hate the idea of Palpatine being an undying evil who was secretly pulling the strings to create new apprentices in the first two films. But that didn't feel very compatible with him having the resources to very easily subjugate and/or destroy the entire universe on his own. It rendered not just TLJ but also TFA completely pointless.

It would've still been kinda silly but I woulda been fine with him being a ghost haunting the Death Star ruins but being a physical body on some other world where he built an unseen massive fleet is too stupid for words.

And you'll find many people have problems with ROTJ, less/more issues with every other Star Wars movie (some you'll agree and disagree with), and a whole bag of other different opinions different from yours. I know! But nah, keep calling people broke-brained. It won't change my particular opinion. Stop bringing down the vibes.

This movie was awful and Return of the Jedi has the most emotionally powerful scenes in the entire franchise despite being the weakest of the original films.

The bad movies imply Palpatine created Anakin during the squid opera scene.

Captain Jesus posted:

I think ROTS leans more in the way that Darth Plagueis did that, not Palpatine.

I had assumed Palpatine made Plagueis up but naturally there had to be some book about how he was a real guy actually because every tiny little thing has to be overexplained.

Groovelord Neato

Captain Jesus posted:

It's possible that he made him up, but I think the movie leaves the question whether Anakin was created by the force or by the sith lords kinda ambiguous. On the one hand, you have Palpatine's story accompanied by the images of an egg being fertilized. On the other hand, Palpatine later reveals that he was bullshiting Anakin about the power to cheat death. If he actually knew how to create new life, why do it just once? I always assumed that Palpatine was talking about an ability that he didn't actually have.

There's also the fact that Anakin was supposed to actually be the chosen one who was supposed to bring balance to the force (according to Lucas) which is difficult to reconcile with him being created by a sith lord that he is supposed to destroy. It would be a nice irony of course.

Oh I didn't want to give the impression it was coherent.

TFA and TLJ both feel like unspoken remakes of ANH and ESB. At least ROS didn't keep with that. It didn't really keep with anything but lol.

The movie doesn't really "explain" it since there's no way to explain away falling down a shaft, being blown up, and then the station it happened on blowing the gently caress up.

The thing about the reaction to this film versus episodes 8 and 9 is that, far more this time around, it seems like both the people who liked the film and didn't like the film, generally agree on what the major problems with the film are and just disagree about how "bad" that makes the movie. Like, I can fully accept a lot of the criticisms, but they didn't bother me to the point I didn't enjoy the movie.

The only people who are outright crazy are the folks crying that Rey was somehow ruined by being a Palpatine.

It was more interesting that she was a nobody. It was one of the good bits from Last Jedi.

I could sorta understand people liking Last Jedi even if I thought it was bad but I legitimately can't grasp people enjoying this one. It's turbo dumb from the opening scenes.
