Media Center>Star Wars Episode IX - SPOILER THREAD
DaneMcCloud 09:46 PM 12-17-2019
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker had its premiere last night at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Non-Spoiler reviews and Twitter mentions are trickling out and they're overwhelmingly positive.

I'll be seeing the film Thursday night, 6:30pm PST but I'm not sure if I'll have time to post because we're traveling for the holidays, leaving at 4am the next morning. If I can't post Thursday evening, I'll get to it at some point over the weekend, maybe after I've seen it a second time.

It's a Spoiler thread but let's try to keep the real spoilery stuff in the Spoiler Tags through the weekend, just so we don't ruin the movie for someone that accidentally clicks on the thread.

Let's hear it! :-)

He was great in TFA and his arc went nowhere.

I CARE MORE ABOUT DROIDS THAN REAL LIFE HUMAN ACTORS BECAUSE THE CHARACTERS THEY PLAY ARE SO SHIT

thank fuck for Adam Driver

he saved this trilogy from being nothing more than nostalgic masturbation
Adam Driver is the Ewan McGregor of this trilogy.

Great comparison. Would have been great if you know,
Spoiler!
just in case they wanted to continue his story.

Whatever. I'm with Clay - they showed that creating a trilogy with Luke, Leia and Han is definitely possible with this. Silver linings.

Why did they even bother including the Knights of Ren? They just showed up and stood there most of the movie until it's time for them to be fodderized. The fucking Praetorian guards did more.

I'm fine with this being just forgotten if we can get a fully CGI Thrawn Trilogy ripoff in 10-20 years

just show them mopping up the remnants of the empire or something and squashing some wannabe dark jedi

trilogy ends with kylo being born

A creative writer can plant the seeds to Palpatine still orchestrating things behind the scenes too.

Or we can just bring back Qui-Gon or something if JJ gets Lindelof involved I guess.

han: "not in this universe, kid."

It is pretty rich that anybody that hated TLJ would criticize this one. Disney basically ignored or retconned entire themes, messages, and characters from that movie. For whatever reason (despite the vast majority of audiences liking TLJ), it seems to have been directly made to appease those haters and TROS was worse because of it.

It has a sub 40% audience score. Hardly "the vast majority".

Wow, it's almost like a small minority of people review bombed that website as they have done to countless other films they felt were too 'SJW' for them.
