A dissappointed 5 from me...
I felt completely underwhelmed leaving cinema after first viewing, And vowed not to buy it on blue ray.But it is star wars so i did ( plus times a good healer.,or just poor memory)
Watched it again over xmas,And it was not as bad as i first thought.Still didn't like the poor comedy. TFA was better for me,But i just have not had the same feeling that i did after watching rogue one & solo.
These were in my opinion really enjoyable, movies.

2.

I only saw it once at the cinema and have absolutely no desire to ever see it again.

The only part I liked was when Luke turned up at the end.

Unfortunately, apart from that bit, they proceeded to completely destroy the beloved character of Luke Skywalker.

One out of ten, sorry guys. I really like the stand alone movies (R1/ SASM) because they are closer to the originals. But hey, it's a good thing that some of us really enjoyed it. Keep it up! 8)

0. Diabolical.

Rian, forget your trilogy and just settle out of court.

Could say the same about people giving it 0! Just as ridiculous as giving it 10! It's probably a 7 from me- REALLY loved a lot of it and it was soooo much better on 2nd/3rd viewings. Still a few bits I don't like though...

I need to watch it again, I gave it 5. But some times I feel like giving in 0! :lol: A 7 is very generous, each to their own though. :)

Absolutely to each their own. I'm still standing by my 0. It was absolute bullshit. I walked out of the midnight showing at the Mary Poppins scene. I'd seen enough. I have sat and seen the full show since three or four times and theres nothing at all endearing there for me. Shocking.

i had to re-vote, i read it as TFA in my head which i quite liked. The last Jedi was a very generous OK. I just feel like Rian undid all the stuff JJ was trying to build just so he could do the movie that he wanted in isolation at any cost. Some decent bits, but god knows why he even bothered keeping any of the casino run in, that was awful. As was the milking of the sea cow and Lukes milk moustash.

I think the problem is that no one really gives as a sh1t about Rey, Po or Fin, if any of them died i wouldn't really batter an eyelid. I think Kylo had the chance to become a great character, but Rian just turned him into a wining emo kid.

I still think JJ can make a great movie to finish it off though.

RetroRyan, I'm inclined to agree up to a certain point. There's no getting away from the that fact the he completely ignored the foundations the J.J. laid befoire in TFA. Not to mention completely ignoring everything else before. Apart from being a piss poor filmaker and by his own admission a SLOW writer, he just was not up to the job. He's not a fan of the saga neither does he understand it TLJ is complete proof. J.J. does. TFA awakens had its problems, but it was a decent start to something that really could have developed.

I could go on and on and on and on.......... Just like so may others.

Those that like it, I'm pleased that they and really wish I could find and see what they do.

For me though. Battlestar Galactica. AT BEST.

I went with 5. It did have selected moments of greatness, but sadly they were overshadowed by the majority of poor decisions.

This long after TLJ's release, kneejerk reactions should hopefully be out of the way. It's clear that there are those out there that like, even love this film, and I'm sure they will happily go to see Episode IX with a skip in their step and warmth in their hearts. I however, will not be one of them. I fall very much into the category of people who cannot stand TLJ, and it's perfectly apparent that there are a very great many of us out there who feel likewise. I could (very!) easily list the things I dislike about that film, but I've been there and done that already, and it achieves nothing at the end of the day.

What I am interested in seeing is how well Episode IX does at the box office. For what it's worth, I did go to see 'Solo' - twice - and enjoyed it, because it had nothing to do with the sequel trilogy, although many people seem to have been unable to make that distinction, and hence stayed away in droves, meaning that that film amazingly made Disney a loss!

I'm sure those people who liked TLJ will go along to see IX, plus a fair chunk of those who disliked it (presumably hoping to see something they like more). However, what is currently unknown is how many people simply won't bother seeing IX at all. I truly wish things were different for me, but TLJ so completely and utterly destroyed the new story for me (in addition to showing astonishing disrespect and contempt for the character of Luke Skywalker, and the establish canon of the saga) that I simply refuse to go and see IX, and I am very curious to see how many others feel the same way. IX will still do enormous box office of course, but I do wonder how it will compare with TLJ's, which itself was very significantly (as in $730 million) down from TFA's, largely due, I suspect, to those like myself who would have given plenty of repeat business to TLJ, if I hadn't hated it with every fibre of my being.

So I'm curious; is anyone else on the forum planning on skipping seeing Episode IX altogether?
