Why Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a Complete Cinematic Failure

  • Published on May 22, 2018
  • Disney made me delete the ending of this video because I used the Star Wars theme. Here's the ending with new music: ruclip.com/video/HyIvGmSsF8M/video.html
    Star Wars: The Last Jedi, what a truly incredible trainwreck. Rian Johnson's complete inability to craft anything even resembling meaningful (or coherent) plotline is truly remarkable to behold. Six months out from this farce, let's take a closer look at everything that went wrong.

      @James Carter... It has nothing to do with that. We're just fans that expect these studios to respect the lore. And we call out shit when we see it. We don't allow ourselves to be spoon fed horse shit with a smile.

      @avengers seven it was godawful and it threw away plot that was setup in force awakens. Fins overacting is repulsive. Ryan Johnson sucks at the end of the day. JJ should have never been allowed to touch star wars

    I remember watching the Last Jedi and the movie was so colossally bad I was already thinking alot of what's in this video while I was watching the movie. Usually if I really want to like something like I did with Star Wars I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and at least lie to myself for a bit that there was a reason the director made the decisions he did. But by the time Rose saved Finn and gave that fucking dumb speech about love I was ready to turn it off (which I thought about doing a few times during the movie). I never in a million years thought I wouldn't want to at least finish a Star Wars movie.

    With all the lies that the Communists have told and continue to tell, it's hard to believe that the Nazis actually did anything bad. It was probably all made up, just like all the imaginary "oppression" today.

    I think if you use the word complete you have to prove that nothing was good. Like last airbender. The flaws in this movie were massive enough to make it a failure, but there were a couple well done parts in it.

    Hyperspace is actually just going really fast, the reason ships don't blow up into planets is because of hyperspace routes, kinda like space highways. If something goes really fast and then gets blown into bits and does bits that can be meters long and shit go in super high speed into another ship the ship will get badly damaged, this is a problem NASA is facing today with space junk going fast around Earth and even the smallest of objects can damage the machines. so 11:00 this is just stupid how you call them stupid for something they are 100% right about.
    As my solid extra proof you have Star Wars: The Clone Wars Episode 13 Season 1 where the Jedi almost hyperspace jumps into their own ship, HyperSpace is just going really fast and the Reason it isn't used in solar systems to go faster is that is super risky.

    And no i didnt like the Last Jedi i thought it was stupid but this part of the movie makes sense, even more so if you actually watch star wars.

    It‘s fascinating to watch a studio kill what was initially a good story waiting to be told.
    For me, TFA was already bad, but I hoped it could only get better. Obviously it didn’t, thanks to a bunch of overpaid underbrained idiots.
    Amazing, Disney.

    Yeah you nailed it. The third movie in the series is going to suck even more. You missed how an untrained junk scrapper who never seen a light saber or used the force can now somehow beat kylo ren who was becoming stronger than luke.

    I do have a way they could Salvage the hyperspace debacle oh, just put it into a probabilistic event, for example it's a one in a GoogleplexJillian chance that the probabilistic presence of matter in a hyperspace jump will maintain three-dimensional space Oh, so she was basically doing this on a Prayer and it just so happened that the force decided to tip probability in her favor oh, so she knew it was theoretically possible to do not that it was definite oh, she rolled the dice and she won, but the chances of it ever happening again or so infinitesimally that no one would ever see it as a stratagem that would be effective

    Technically... hyperspace is moving really fast. The reason people don’t crash into planets is because there are tracked out paths to follow, so the hyperspace ramming scene makes 100% sense.
    And also... she is not the first person to realize that. Just because it’s the first time we see it on screen, doesn’t mean it’s never happened. Besides the guy next to hux even shouts “no!” like he knows what’s gonna happen

    My sister works for Disney and swears up and down it was a good movie. She defends it so hard. But everyone knows it was total shit. She blames, "People hate everything and everyone's a critic." You dont have to be a critic to realize it SUCKED.

    I started watching this, then I heard you say The Force Awakens was really bad. So I wanted to see what you had to say about TFA and I clicked on your channel, only to be immediately aware of the fact that you're actually the guy who "vaped" (I'm guessing you didn't actually buy any, not that I care either way) Belle Delphine's bath water.

    Sorry, I won't be watching any more of this video or any other video of yours. I was intrigued until I saw that. Good luck with the channel, I'm sure you'll continue success, it's just not for me.

Disliking someone because they wrote a movie you didn't like is actually fucking pathetic. All I can say is thanks for making it clear where you stand within 24 seconds so I don't have to waste my time with this embarrassing excuse for an analysis video.
