They probably wanted to imply that THIS Palpatine is Darth Plageus and the Palpatine from 1-6 is Sidious. They failed, obviously.

This is how I felt about the prequels compared to the originals. I learned to appreciate the prequels more over two decades, but still, why?
Pretty sure a lot of shit that felt 'too fast' would have made more sense if they had time to appear and develop in Last Jedi.

The star wars storyline isn't out of possible stories to tell. They just hire shitty writers who can't think of any original content

For real the prequels were good movies even if they had flaws they were great and had good rythm .... I also liked that Luca respected the sci fi themed since it was robots versus clones (the ethical scientist debate in the early 2000 )

I think they of used the idea of Whills in Rebels season 4 "A world between worlds" with the 3 charcaters Father, Daughter and Son who were the embodiment of the force.

The fact that the Holdo Maneuver is so unlikely to pull off makes no sense. That means that Holdo was truly leading them to their death in Last Jedi.

Wow mike really didn’t understand rise of skywalker. The Palp in RoS is a clone of the one who died but the body is decaying because it’s incomplete due to Sith magic (a little kinda reference to the old legends extended universe) or something I’m no expert but man mike really seemed like he wasn’t even paying attention.

A big problem that you guys addressed is that Star Wars was never built for longevity (as a franchise), unlike say the MCU. If Disney had wanted to do something similar with this franchise, they should have laid a far more cohesive groundwork; films like Rogue One and Solo should have directly tied into the major installments and each other - i.e. world building. If Kathleen Kennedy knew what she was doing, or actually gave a flying fuck about Star Wars beyond seeing it as a money machine, then maybe they could have made it work far better.

palpatine, he could manipulate jedis and the senate. he could clone FORCE USERS. he beat YODA!!! he could zap a WHOLE FLEET OF STARSHIPS! but he still got beat by rey after a weeks worth of training. he didnt have the power of a uterus...tough luck, palpy

Hmmm I dunno, I must disagree with the whole "with Snoke dead they just HAD to find a new villain" argument. Think more than enough groundwork was laid for a good writer to make Kylo a compelling primary antagonist.

My opinion: J.J. Abrams did the best he could with what Rion Johnson left him. J.J. set up a framework for a trilogy in Force Awakens and Rion Johnson chose to ignore it and go his own way, even though his film was one in a series of three. And amazingly, Disney and Lucas Film let him do it. I also feel like Rise of Skywalker intentionally leaned into the madness because at that point, why not?

15:10 that is absolutely not how Palpatine survived or who he is. His return is absolutely as contrived, but what the novel said is that Palpatine essence transferred back to a clone. However, his original body died on the second death star

What infuriated me most of this mess is their version of the throne room scene, In Return, Luke is put in front of the same moral dilemma - jump to the dark side or let everyone die. He has his moment of weakness, but then he chooses a third alternative, go full jesus and let his dad take care of the emperor. So he needs help, but he also chooses. In this mess, Ray is like "OK, I guess I will kill you and take your place then, I have no other options!" Luckily for her and the universe, her emo boyfriend comes and saves the day. I guess the message is: a sith lord with a dick is more reliable than a dickless jedi. How progressive! BTW I only watched the movie in order to enjoy this review more.

"Her character's a Mary Sue, so I hate her as a human being" THAT'S IT. THAT'S THE PERFECT DESCRIPTION. People don't understand that she's just portraying a person that someone else envisioned and another different person decided what she would say. She gave her best. She actually is my second favorite character (after Kylo, of course) of all these films, even including even the classic actors. It's not her fault the character wasn't grounded. Even the ones to blame, like J.J., doesn't even deserve the hate. If you mess up a task in your job, be it simple or complex, do you think strangers should have the right to tell you to kill yourself? People that feel obligated to be rude to others are simply evil. Sometimes they don't even want to be, they just believe they're right, as askewd their vision could be. In summary, don't be mean to people. Even if they messed up your favorite thing, they 99.99% of the time weren't actually trying to get you mad nor to intentionally make something shitty. Tip: if you hate anything without proper arguments nor respecting those involved in what made you made, take some time off to think about how you deal with people. You're probably someone that hurts people in ways you wouldn't like to be hurt yourself. Try to put yourself in the other one's shoes. Don't be a dick. I mean it.

OH SHIT THAT DUTCH TILT IN STAR TREK Like, I only ever heard people talking about how tilting the camera has specific uses (like showing confusion, insanity and even representing the character losing his grip on reality/doubting all he took as truth) and otherwise it just ruins the shot. But until this, I never understood how it could fuck up a scene. JJ, I KNOW THEY'RE CONFUSED, ANXIOUS AND IN THE MIDDLE OF BATTLE, BUT GOD, KEEP THE CAMERA STILL!

I'm someone that can like even the worst movie ever made, while still acknowledging it's flaws. This is the first movie that I sounded like a BRvid channel (like the ones that only focus on the flaws, even though they may be only doing it for the purpose of the channel e.g. CinemaSins). I was constantly going "WHAT WAS THAT?" "WAIT WHAT?" "BUT HOW?" "COME ON, THAT ISNT NECESSARY" and other kinds of similar sentences. I could literally FEEL Abraham's spite and his direct jabs at TLJ. It was noticeable. Half of this movie is a shorter attempt at a retell of ep VIII while still considering it canon ALL THE WHILE saying that the last one lied to all the viewers and this one is the only that is sincere. God, this was a mess. Still enjoyed watching it though.

I refuse to accept the Prequel and Sequel Trilogy as canon. Star Wars will always be 1977-1983 to me. It had a beginning, middle and end & Han shot first.

I just watched ROS for the first time yesterday and omg it's so lame on so many levels! As mentioned in the review everything happens super fast, nothing has any time to breathe, everything that happens is set up with only about one or two lines of dialog and if you pull on any thread it falls apart and nothing makes sense. But that's not even the worst of it. The entire style of the movie was like a parody and got irritating very fast, the scenes with all the old actors were awkward and cringy, especially the scenes with Leia when she always has like 1 line or even just a word or a look and everyone around her has to talk for her (I know why but still, that was terrible). Also I'm surprised they didn't mention in the review how EVERYONE phoned in their performance, it so obvious that all of the actors are so done with this, everyone delivers their lines completely flat, dead-eyed, no emotion, no chemistry. It was obvious that everyone just wanted to get this over with. It was worse than I expected.

I get that RLM made their name off ripping the prequels, but you guys should acknowledge how much the Star Wars universe was expanded by those films. The sequel trilogy’s biggest mistake was somehow making the Star Wars universe feel small.

Dude your interpretation of the plot of palpatine is so incredibly far off from what I understood it to be. Palpatine wasn’t a clone in all the movies it was the original but he made a base on the sith planet while he was in power as a backup plan which could reincarnate him if he died with all the sith of the past assisting as some mega spirit. So ghost in the shell palpatine was a reincarnated kinda clone of the original who died on the death star. I fckin hated it, but that’s the plot.

Pretty obvious to me now, the worst approach for making a new SW Saga Trilogy was trying to connect it all to the original cast twenty yrs too late. Just make new characters who have their own stories, & let them have fleshed out arcs.

I'm going to be fair and not even give "Rise of Skywalker" a chance. How is that fair? Because they'll be spared from my hate mongering. Sort of. I can't bash it directly without having viewed it, so I'll stick with generalization. Star Wars episode IV will always be my favorite film from the franchise, nothing will ever come close. Because back then they actually cared about producing a good movie with a good story. The series is dead and died long ago after the prequels. People are too focused on modernizing everything instead of just focusing on good story making. "Oh how can we cater to all these different breeds of humans, we got to make sure to include everyone, otherwise somebody will get offended." That thinking right there kills film making in general and why everything sucks today. The movies that ignore this rule get swept under the carpet where only the intelligent, mindful people pay attention. Problem is, these films don't make money, and that's because the majority of Earthlings are fucking dumb.

I gave up on the movies since Force Awakens, to be honest. That movie already smelled bad and made me lose ALL interest in Star Wars. I play Jedi Fallen Order instead, much better and much more "Star wars" than all these new movies put together. Also liked The Mandalorian.

I might be the only person in the entire universe who hates the sequel trilogy but still likes the characters. Especially Finn and Poe. Even Rey - I like a number of things about her despite the ridiculousness in the way that they tried to portray her. The sequel trilogy is just a complete disaster, mostly because of the way they undid a lot of the original trilogy. They turned Han Solo back into an asshole after his redemption story and completely distorted Luke and everything he ever stood for. They destroyed Anakin’s redemption and made the Empire seem disposable by using its skeleton to create the very unoriginal new order. Or first order, whatever the hell it was called, I don’t even care anymore. First mistake they made was trying to put the good guys in charge of the galaxy again since the Empire wasn’t around anymore, but still give them an underdog, rebellion type of feel, by putting them “on their own” in the galaxy against the first order, which doesn’t make any sense at all story wise. The first order is horribly evil, the new republic isn’t bothering to do anything about it and then on top of that won’t even overtly support the resistance, so it makes it seem as if the resistance is a giant underdog, just to capture that feel of the original series. What a terrible decision that was.

If the rumors around this movie are true and it was the biggest clusterf*@& if all time. With so many reshoots and changing of the end and the plot. Its a wonder it isn't worse and then there is the Lucas cut. Which is said to be light years better (which isn't saying much) but is considered more coherent and enjoyable. Rumor has it the Lucas cut got Kathleen Kennedy removed from the head of Lucas film in everything but name by the money men at Disney. The reason the money men wanted Kennedy out? The toys didn't sell, not that they were modest or below normal sales, no Disney lost hundreds of millions of Star Wars toys that were never sold. Meaning there was no back end, hell people who did get some, were probably sent a bill by Disney to cover the money lost making the toys.

It’s so fucking frustrating thinking about this franchise. Force Awakens, like yeah it was a rip off but it’s still SO good, the actors are great and have chemistry, the music is great, it’s just a good movie. But they just FUCK up the rest of the trilogy. It’s such a shame because if they had a full 3 movie arc planned for all of their characters, it would’ve been great
