I haven't bought it either. In fact I have never felt any urge to watch it again after my first viewing in the cinema. I will watch it again sometime but not in any rush at the moment.

I found the extras helpful, I realised Ryan Johnson has no idea what he is doing and it’s pretty lucky we got a watchable film. :lol:

I'm a man of simple taste, I like lasers, explosions and spaceships and i'm happy with that, poor plot or not I still enjoy the movies as long as it looks and sounds like Star Wars for the most part. :)

I love TLJ, seen it 3 times now and will most likely watch it again within the next month, sure it's got some annoying scenes that make you wanna cry for the wrong reasons but i'm happy with the rest of it.

I'm in the watched it multiple times camp

Saw it 8 times at the cinema in the end and have watched it 4-5 times on Bluray. I love TLJ, ranks highly in my full list of SW movies and actually struggle to understand how/why folk have such an issue with it ( i can see the flaws, I'm not blind, but the fuss is unbelievable to me). I genuinely think its as incredibly complex and well made film IMO with a refreshing shift to the linear track that SW was going down before it.
I have also massively enjoyed the documentaries and extras on the home release.

Anyway, we all like different stuff, some folk like ROTS and AOTC after all :lol:

So do I. I think the PT are actually better to watch than the sequels. I myself (my own opinion before anyone gets irate :D ) find them to be an easier watch than TFA and TLJ. In many peoples minds, the PT was very poor and wooden - so to speak but to me, the sequels were 100 times worse. As much as I hate to say it, Daisy Ridley and friends are so poor and seem to try too hard. Daisy in particular was a very poor choice.

Now, im just going to watch the PT over Skype with Weasel. He loves the PT you know :D :D :D

Yeah I’m not saying anything! :lol:

I have towo lists really, my personal favourite Star Wars films and then another list for which I think are the best films. Two completely different things. I wish the prequels were made in the same style as Solo and Rogue 1 though, gritty universe I mean.

Over the years I have bought the original trilogy 4 times on VHS, once on laser disc, once on DVD and once on blu-ray. And if Disney ever releases the unaltered original trilogy on blu-ray, I will buy it again. I have bought TPM once on VHS, then again on DVD. I bought AOTC and ROTS once each on DVD, and then all of the prequels yet again on blu-ray. I bought TFA and Rogue One on blu-ray, and will also be buying Solo on blu-ray. I won't be buying the simply appalling, unforgivable, uncanonical, incredibly poorly written, non-sensical, godawful, fan-hating, piece of unmitigated shit that a sniggering Rian Johnson (presumably an envious closet Trekkie) shat out and inflicted upon an unsuspecting and undeserving world in the form of TLJ. Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy should be fucking ashamed of themselves for that travesty of an alleged Star Wars film.

I could literally spend all day listing its legion of faults and where it went wrong and how it could and should have very easily been done infinitely better, but I won't. What's done is done, and episode 8 won't change, more's the pity. For me, it's quite simply the film which killed the episodic franchise. If others enjoy it, then kudos to them for managing that. I certainly didn't, and not being a masochist, I won't be inflicting it upon myself ever again (along with anything else Rian Johnson comes within a thousand miles of, for that matter).

Does that answer your question? ;-)

So your not keen on TLJ?
:lol:
I saw it once at the cinema and bought it on Blu-ray when it was released.
I wasn’t overly sure after the fist viewing at the cinema, but having watched it twice at home, have started to find that’s “it not a bad film”, and there are some amazing scenes.
Sure as Steve has said there are poor bits, and some awful bits, but aren’t there in all films?

I don't remember any awful bits in Empire ;-)

But as stated in the above diatribe, if anyone else managed to derive enjoyment out of TLJ then my sincere congratulations to them! :D

I got TFA soon after it was released but its still in the wrapping and havent even contemplated watching it again. Rogue One i have watched a number of times now, and not only for the close up of Felicitys bum - i actually enjoy the film. :D


Hi mate, no your not I haven't bought it and never will even when its 50p from a car boot sale, someone offered it to me for free on copy was like no thank you. Not even going to watch cinema sinns video don't want to sit through that film in any shape or form ever again.
