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.

    There's no way Star Wars cannot be brilliant. We are getting movies chronologically that make sense in a vast fantastical universe. I don't have to enjoy it, nor watch it, but I don't mind fantasy, it can't be wrong.

    I really can't stand the tone of this video. I do not like The Last Jedi, but one of the most important parts of critique is realizing that your opinion is not fact. The Last Jedi did subvert opinions, but enjoying that does not make someone an idiot. There are not facts pertaining to how one should correctly interpret films. It's an opinion. I agree with your opinion, but honestly you have to change your tone

    I watched the 8th movie way later it was released. And to this day I haven't wanted to watch anymore. I rather was the old ones again. I hated rey as much as I hated Tauriel in the hobbit. I hate feminism. It's stupid; it's not about equality, but simply girl-power. And there is nothing as unattractive as she-woman. In general, people acting tough are not cool, they are annoying.

    I'm overwhelmed with joy to see somebody finally explain how TLJ "subverting expectations" isn't a good thing.
    Constant twists aren't a good thing when they have either no build up or they're just unsatisfying to begin with. Leia's force powers come out of nowhere and they never get mentioned after. Holdo not telling her crew her plan is the most dumbest most illogical thing for a leader to do in her situation. And Snoke and Rey's parents are built up since the last movie for the payoff to be "fuck em they don't matter".
    It's just not good man.

    Hyperspace has been explained in many Star Wars novels and even the original movies I’m pretty sure. There is a reason they have to put in calculations and why there are such things as hyperspace routes in Star Wars. The rest of your points are valid though.

    This is a really dumb, shallow analysis. You basically take twenty minutes to say "I don't like it because it's dumb. Also something about women."
    Also you ignore the part that Han Solo says about traveling through hyperspace in the first movie. It ain't like dusting crops, boy.

    Ha-ha! I look at these comments and think, "Wow! People are too invested over and passionate about fictional characters." Here's the thing; I'm not a casual fan... I'm a huge one. I thought "The Last Jedi" was a great film. Honestly, I loved that it killed the mystery of Rey, showed that Luke was imperfect, and killed off Snoke. On top of all of this, the directing and cinematography was done beautifully.
    All I have to say is this, "Grow the hell up." You're a problem in our society if you can't get over fiction. Since the majority will hate my comment as they are closed-minded and empty-minded beings, I welcome all trolls to perform their trolling on me. It won't hurt me since I'm not a whiney bitch like you. Go cry, Snow Flakes!

      Not sure who the troll is here :) If you stopped after the first paragraph, you deserved a like from me (Not that you actually cared, I know :)). Because you apparently liked the film, enjoyed the story the plot just worked for you and you said why. And even when I don't agree with you I can respect your opinion. But the second paragraph? You are the very same thing you try to preach against.

    Movie has problems, but let's be fair....if say The Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones came out today, instead of the early stages of the internet, those movies were get as bad of treatment if not worse.
    I guess TLJ's hate train could be because of Social Media and the accessibility everyone has the capabilities of doing critiques, whether there a paragraph, to a novel's worth.

    TLJ ain't great, but it's not terrible. If anything I'd say at worst it's on par with the Episode 1 & 2.

    TL;DR if any other Star Wars movie came out today, we'd be seeing more videos and critiques like this...at least 20 minutes instead of ones that a five hours lol

  • Juno

    Yep, because movies, can't just be flawed. The world is absolutely completely black and white, and The Last Jedi (despite having beautiful powerful lightsaber duels, stunning space battles, more unique thematic elements, exploring darker themes, and overall taking Star Wars in new direction) is absolutely terrible and nothing else because of a couple scenes.

    2) Takes Luke 3 mos with Yoda with intense training to master the force but only takes a 15 minute yoga session for Rey to suddenly kick ass.
    3) Luke carried physical bracelet and hugged Liea, but some how was a projection that could do physics things, then blew away like a fart in the wind.
    4) Gravity bombs in space and bombay doors wide open with no vaccum of space and the lady lies face down like kid licking the bottom of a glass bottom boat.

    The movie was a shitshow with so many plot lines that weren’t explained at the end. It hardly progressed the Star Wars universe. Snoke was some pointless fool that did nothing. Unless episode 9 blows everything out of the water then this trilogy was complete garbage, way worse than the prequels.

    They had a chance to bring Luke Skywalker back in style and bring some relevance to the current trilogy but damn did they fail bad. In a way they didn’t deserve to have correct versions of Luke, Han, Leia’s because the last two JJ Abrams movies are so bad. But that was the last chance to have them all on screen and start a new great trilogy and set a tone for years to come but chose not to.
