I hated The Darkness.

Then was hungover and forced to watch them open Glastonbury 2003. They were outstanding. I could smell it. Was a fan after that.

Seen it again today, and the Super Leia and Luke dying scenes still piss me off but its not as bad as I first though. Still think that the storyline is iffy and Finn is a waste of space but...

I don’t really mind the Luke dying bit, first viewing I didn’t really believe he died, or was in denial. Second time I cried, realising my childhood hero was dead. :lol:

The super Leia bit does piss me off and it has to be bad to annoy me. The thing is for me Vader was given a suit in the concept art for episode 4 because George Lucas said Vader was going to need a suit for being exposed to the vacuum of space. In Episode 3 Palpetine almost flys into space but holds on which is a bit more realistic.

However if you google what would happen if the human body was exposed to the vacuum of space, you will realise that the Leia Mary Popins scene isn’t that unrealistic, certainly more realistic than hyper space anyway. Most people probably know this, but I just presumed the human body would explode in space, which is not the case.

Thing is as well if you love the original films like we all do, then IMO you can’t really get pissed of with anything that seems unrealistic in the other films, the force is basically a get out of jail card and can be used as a reason for making pretty much anything possible in the Star Wars universe.

Well you can get pissed off, but I can’t. :lol:

Seeing as this is the thread that everyone’s reading right now, good place to give a ‘heads up’ to fellow British fans…

“The Galaxy Britain Built” is on Thurs 10pm on BBC Four. Documentary with new interviews with Gareth Edwards, Gary Kurtz, Rob Watts, John Mollo and many more. Set your recorders!

An abridged half hour version of the documentary is already available to watch right now on BBC iPlayer.

Off to see it again tomorrow night, can't wait. :roll:

I take the point about it not being made for us auld farts and maybe some of us would never like it because we wanted XYZ and that was never going to be made. But for me, putting aside the crap jokes and Leia's space walk AND that unnecessary casino bit, the thing that bugs me is the first order spend how long just blindly following the rebel ships???
I'm ignoring the fact that they are now faster than star destroyers but weren't previously.
The First Order have hundreds of star destroyers CALL SOME MORE IN!!!!! They chase them for how many hours, surely someone other ship could have jumped in on the other side of the rebels and trapped them. Then they wuda had them boxed in and they cuda blown the shit out of them. They have been trying to wipe them out for a while now, i'm fairly sure a few other ships could put down their laundry run/stop patrolling random sectors and come along and helped finish off the rebels once and for all.
I just can't see any reason why they wouldn't call in more ships. That kinda ruins the plausibility (yes, I know it's Sci fi film, but you know the context I mean it in) of the main plot point.

Watching it online (streaming) I must say it is a nice sci-fi movie. It is more for the next generation and there are some hints for us old farts... :wink: But overall it is ok and entertaining and I even liked the casino scenes (oh dear...). But it gave me some kind of feeling, as if it wasn't movie worthy. If this was going to be some kind of Rebels stuff it is really ok to me, but not as a so called blockbuster. It's ok and even better than TFA, so I am mildly pleased. Just let it go, Luke would say, and that is what I am going to do. Let it be and accept that dinosaurs once ruled the earth, but now it is time that a younger generation can enjoy these movies. I look back at the movies from my childhood and even more appreciate them because they happened at that time. Not spending a penny on modern stuff, it is not for me. TLJ is entertainment, no more, no less...

I’ve had a thought, perhaps Snoke wanted to trag out the blowing up of the resistance so he could show Rey that their was no point fighting anymore. Scraping the barrel I know, but it’s similar to what The Emperor does to Luke in ROTJ.

General Hux didn’t seem that bothered about rushing to blow them up, maybe he had orders from the top. :?

Did think it was funny how every time you saw the scene of the rebel ships getting blown up two or three got taken out in the space of a couple seconds, but their always seemed to be plenty in the next scene 5 minutes later. They should have all gone in about 30 seconds.

Well done Mr.Tie for giving it a chance and being honest. :)

I had the same feeling about those rebel ships blown up and still coming :D But it is entertainment and I understand the meaning of building up some suspense. So again, being honest (thanks mate! - really appreciate :P ) and just let it happen. Enjoy moments like the music as the falcon flies through the planet blowing up some Tie Fighters and Luke enjoying the twin suns. That's worth a lot to me...

I know that's The Darkness, but the point is when something like that really divides people iv'e found to the people who love it it's like a genius work of art.


The darkness (and the light) are things that really annoy me about the new films.

I found Leia talking about the light one of the more irritating things about TLJ. It is this trilogy’s version of ‘younglings’

Irrational I know, but really annoying :-)

To be honest, I think even the people who really do like TLJ aren’t liking it for the ‘crawl across the galaxy’ plot, and I’ve not heard anyone at all, anywhere, say they enjoyed the casino subplot (why oh why wasn’t Lando the slicer there :cry: ).

They’re liking it in spite of those things I reckon (me included). It’s a slow burner for sure, but after the extremely safe, unoriginal film we got with TFA I think it’s a daring change of direction. I just wish they’d got some of the plot straightened out and the running time trimmed down.

Haha yes, those rebel ships are like the troopers on Scarif. They’re getting blown up right, left and centre but there are always loads more to get blown up in the next scene.

I want to see it a second time and it just gets worse!!



This movie was and is f-ing horrible.

IM CALLING IT, THE WORST STAR WARS MOVIE YET,

AND THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT RIAN JOHNSON THE LAST JEDI HAS BEEN SIGNED UP TO DO 3 MORE MOVIES, LOL :lol:



The Leia in space scene was written by someone who belongs in a mental hospital.

Leia can float in space now, OHH MY GOD!! Fu** off.


That scene on its own ruined the film for me.

YEP!!!

I was ready to walk out at that point.


The worst scene in any Star Wars Movie by Far.

Whoever came up with it should be fired on the Spot.

Leia is now Mary Poppins

WTF!!


Kathleen Kennedy needs to resign as head of Lucas Film,
Kathleen Kennedy needs to resign as head of Lucas Film after this crap!


Snoke was the biggest waste of time ive ever seen.


The Jokes where a, joke.


It had a horrible middle section where the audience was supposed to pretend to be invested in Finn and Rose going on a mission that basically meant nothing to the overall mission/battle in the end, with the biggest pay off being, they freed some animals?? This was only put into the film to give Finn something to do which meant nothing in the end anyways.


Reys parentage was the biggest hoax ive ever seen.


How can Snoke fire someone around the room just by looking at them, connect Rey and Kylo between Galaxys, read their thoughts, literally feel someones feelings... but the guy cant hear a rusty old metal lightsaber rattling like a drain pipe on his metal chair RIGHT NEXT TO HIM!?!?



The slowest fake space chase in history. Lol!!


Star Wars Universe Craft now run low on Fuel, WTF!


They totally butchered Luke's character. WTF!!


Luke throwing the Light Saber over his shoulder for comedic Effect, WTF!!



Question for you... If a ship can tear through a star destroyer by going into hyperspace...why did the original trilogy characters need the Death Star plans at all?


Laura Dern WTF!!

AGAIN Laura Dern WTF!!

She looked like an extra from the casino part of the film and they thought no, we can use her as the Hero in Part of the Film instead of Ackbar so we can push more women as hero's FEMINIST PROPAGANDA.. She was in the Film for 5 minutes and it was 5 minutes too long.

AGAIN Laura Dern WTF!!


Captain Phasma' Death WTF!!


Admiral Ackbar Death WTF!!

Such a waste and he was the one who should have crashed the ship to try and save the others


Snook Death and no back story to the character at all, WTF!!!



Disney are too busy trying to push liberalism onto the masses by hijacking franchises like star wars to push FEMINIST PROPAGANDA.



The Original Star Wars had adventure, heart, interesting characters and was good movie making.



The Disney Star Wars has no direction, no vision, no heart, crap jokes, crap acting'. and is just poor movie making.



I should have learned my lesson after The Force Awakens which compared to the Last Jedi is a work of Art!


I refuse to pay for anything Disney Star Wars ever again.


Im done and am now happy to walk away from it all as its now for me just one big joke!


It's actually damaging to watch these new star wars films as they are now starting to affect the way you watch and see the originals movies.

Darth Vader, one of the most evil figures in galactic history.




Luke: I know there is still good in you; I will not fight you father.




Ben Solo showed signs of going bad.



Disney Luke: Hmm, maybe I should kill this kid.




Sounds legit to me.




Lol!!




What a load of sh*t!!
