I don’t like writing reviews, but I like talking, so I decided instead of reviewing this movie, I just want to have a casual discussion about it!
This is not a review and contains major spoilers! Read at your own risk!
Let’s do a quick recap(for my sake).
Emperor Palpatine is alive! Poe and Finn join Rey on a mission to destroy him. Meanwhile, Palpatine sends out his minion Kylo Ren to kill Rey. We’ve learned from the last two movies that Kylo has a very hard time grasping the idea of killing Rey, so he decides rather than harm her, he’s going to turn her. As Rey, Finn, and Poe continue to search for Palpatine, Kylo continues to confront Rey. Which doesn’t help the inward conflict she’s been struggling with. I think we’re all familiar with the last part of the movie. Rey confronts Palpatine, Kylo turns back to the light, Rey dies as Palpatine is destroyed, Ben dies to save Rey. And all while this is going on the resistance takes one last stand.
Was I the only one who totally thought the Resistance was gonna loose? It was right at that moment, as Poe watched his fleet be slaughtered. And he made that great apologetic speech. I tried to hide the tears in my eyes from the other fans in the theater. Almost prepared to accept the fate of the resistance when wait, What’s this? Gasp, Lando! We’re saved! Yay!!!
Overall I think the movie was… ok. Though, as the end of the saga, I felt like it could have been better. Way better. It was unsatisfying. Just considering what they’ve put us through, not only these past five years with the sequel trilogy, but also, the journey we’ve been on the past fifty years with the entire saga! We deserved something with more thought.
They completely abandoned the story line and the character arcs they built in the last Jedi, but I’m not going to talk about that because it will only make me mad.
I do have a favorite scene though. Out of all the drama throughout the movie, my all-time favorite scene would be where Kylo’s looking for Rey. Rey’s on Kylo’s ship while he searches the ground. And they have the Force bond thing. I don’t really know why, but that’s my favorite part! I love how calm Kylo is. He’s just trying to tell Rey about her family, and she does not want to hear it. And when he figures out where she is he says calmly “I’ll find you and tell you.” I don’t know why but I love that part! LOL!
Another favorite part of mine is the scene where Ben talks to Han. I love how it’s just a repeat of what happened in TFA, only it’s everything Han should have said, and everything Ben should have done.
Plus the fight between Rey and Kylo a few seconds before was just epic!
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed not only this post but the latest Star Wars movie!
If you have a favorite scene, tell me about it!
Thanks a bunch!
