So what did you think about star wars VIII ??????

Postby Pomse2001 » Thu Dec 14, 2017 1:18 am

I just came home 20 min ago from the cinema. I saw star wars the 13 dec. here in denmark with a good friend who also collect vintage star wars just like me :D We were both disappointed, the movie is ok and better than episode 1,2 and 3 but that is that, nothing more. It is not near Rogue One if you ask me. So what do you guys think ? :?

Wasn't overwhelmed if I'm honest, thought it got lost in the middle.
Pretty disappointing after tfa, and didn't enjoy it anywhere as near as Rouge One
Need to see it again, but first reaction is, disappointing

Walked out! That's hardcore.
I was also disappointed, especially with the first half of the movie but the second half was better. Kylo was the best thing about it, Adam Driver was excellent. Definitely the weakest of the new films.

Utter fookin dross. Only reason I didn't walk out was because I was with my wife and daughter - as soon as it finished both said they also wanted to walk out.

I loved it. So many great scenes, humour, and good surprises that stopped it being predictable.

For me Star Wars is fun, and that it all.

Disappointed.
Much like the prequels, after one watch it's doubtful I'll watch it again.

The same in denmark 5 out of 6 stars and the best movie in 2017 I do not understand it, it was ok but not near rogue one if you ask me. Rogue one is lightyears better than this movie.

After a single viewing, I'm swinging to a positive mix of 60:40 or maybe 70:30... certainly not 80:20... yet

There are somethings that I loved and some not so much. I'm certain though that Like Rogue One before it will be a grower and given how much I now love Rogue One, I have high hopes for this one over time.

There wont ever be film in the SW universe that will touch the OT. The only thing that comes near is Rogue One and I think that is a great, gritty film that ties in with the OT. You just have to watch it for what it is, and its just a continuation of a the saga, but for many people they deem it as 'ruining' the feel of Star Wars. That's wholly untrue, and I myself use to think that but they are aiming at a new audience.

Im actually going to wait a week or so before I see it with my kids. Its the first ever Star Wars film that I am not in a rush to see (apart from the Clone Wars animated movie) and it just doesn't feel right. TFA was a huge letdown for me, but Rogue one really did reinvigorate some love again.

Yup. I walked. No intention of going back either. Not interested which way it goes. Or seeing any future Star Wars films.

I agree with you not any film will touch the ot. But Rogue one comes very near the old ones :D

Yep that's where I'm at as well - pretty much done with it now. No interest in seeing Solo or episode 9. Got my original 3 and fingers crossed the announced disney/Fox merger gets us closer to OT box set release so I'm happy for everyone that enjoys the new SW but it's just not for me.
