i want to be a prince


I'm 20 minutes into my first (and only) viewing of Rise of Skywalker and this is the worst movie I have ever seen. I am so angry at everything that is happening on the screen.



except the part with the millions of star destroyers lifting off from under a planet's surface. that was funny so i was okay with it

It's ok as long as you shut your brain off. Don't think about what's happening on screen, really don't think about other Star Wars films, and if you can keep that up it's a C- action flick with serious plotting issues.

i was complaining about it being nonstop action scenes without any real conversations about what is going on between characters

and then there was a conversation and i instantly changed my mind and wanted everyone to shut up



edit to avoid doublepost: my wife just described the first 5 minutes with the analogy "it's like if Episode 2 started with an opening crawl saying there was an assassination attempt and then it jumped to obi-wan cutting down people on his way to Dex's Diner to be told "Go to Kamino""

It's ok if you turn off the video and sound and just read a book or do some baking for the length of the runtime.

pros:
i liked the million star destroyers coming out from under a planet's surface
palpatine shooting his big force lightning at the sky was hilarious

cons:
i cant be reasonably expected to make a list, can i?
it's everything
literally everything
this movie is unsalvageable

Oh I actually did like that, thanks for reminding me. It just slipped my mind in all the garbage surrounding it.

Like: why was Lando on that planet? So they establish that he came there with Luke hunting the sith compass, right? They failed to find it and Luke left then became a hermit for years leading up to TLJ. Did Lando just stay on this planet for all those intervening years? He doesn’t seem to still be looking for it anymore. Does he just like living here? Why was he suddenly an expert on Sith lore? Why does everyone suddenly know so much about Sith lore for that matter? It feels like every character reads wookieepedia when they’re not on-screen.

From what I hear, there are some scenes that were pretty blatantly rewritten after they were filmed.

When the third film in a trilogy establishes it's main plot point in the opening crawl (or fortnite) you're on ground shakey enough as to be actively having an earthquake from the word 'go'.

Yeah that's pretty ridiculous if RoS is the worst movie you've ever seen.

RoS was a completely mediocre and inoffensive movie. It wasn't great by any means but it wasn't actively bad. Just standard Disney fare. Some bad parts. In fact I don't remember much of it because it was just forgettable.

The main progress this forum has managed to make is having at least some threads avoid derailing into an argument about whether the last jedi is good or bad and precisely how good or bad is it and in what exact ways it is good or bad

I can't believe a movie I have never seen and everyone I've talked too cannot describe to me in any detail made a bunch of money. Like Avatar is this complete blind spot for my culturally where no one I know retained any information regarding it.

Seeing it get a sequel after (number) years is just as wild.
