A character recommends hyperspace ramming Exegol and they're all like "nah that was a ONE IN A MILLION THING" instead of leaning into it, JJ wishes he'd thought of it

literally everyone who has thought about star wars for five minutes has determined that there must be something in-universe about hyperspace travel that prevents this from being a thing

The biggest Star Wars nerd (self-proclaimed) that I know hated TLJ and said that TROS "redeemed the sequel trilogy" for him. Sadly I hadn't seen it yet when he said because I would have loved to take a deeper dive into that.

i kinda feel the same way tbh

TROS wasn't great as a movie but it was a lot better than TLJ as a star wars story

If anything, Holdo was too nice to Poe. Doing what he did (storming the bridge and yelling in the admiral's face to demand information in a threatening manner, then calling her a "traitor" and "coward" in front of everyone because he saw only a small portion of her preparations out of context) normally gets you dragged out by several burly men and throw in a cell where you can't talk to anybody.

yeah, literally a capital crime in just about any wartime military

Holdo badly needed to be established in TFA or just merged with Leia for this drama to work. the audience actually has opinions & investment in Poe, Holdo has nothing but Laura Dern for us to care about.

yeah, introducing new characters all over the place where an OT character would work much better seriously hurt the ST

i get that this is a sarcastic shitpost but by TROS there are like a dozen "main" characters and it's just too much

even TLJ feels the need to stop every so often and check in on what's chewbacca's doing

i wasn't being sarcastic. throughout the ST i pretty much only cared about the OT characters, kylo, and maybe rey

i couldn't even figure out why i was supposed to give a poo poo about poe or finn, much less 30 minor characters they think we're going to dress as for halloween

Trying to humanize the Jedi and view them from a modern/post-modern lens of deconstructing stark dichotomies was a huge mistake. Leave them wise mysterious space monks who are the good guys imo

Tyranny did "whole army where murdering your superior officer was OK" and it was...unstable.

the romans had that system too in a way. turns out most soldiers just want to get paid, who knew

Rose needed a lot more to do

Rose was a cheesy addition to a movie that already had too many loving main characters and it seems like jj agreed

Too bad he just went and added a bunch more anyway lol
