I also wish that we had gotten some type of interaction between Ben/Kylo Ren and his mother in one of these movies. Now we never will.



I know. All we had were them feeling each other during the space battle and that's not enough.

At NYCC my sister said to Carrie that Leia needs to smack her son. Carrie said she needs to lock him in the closet.

I agree that Mark's performance with the material he had misgivings about was excellent.

Which is why I feel like he died for nothing. His ghost is rolling over.

Yea, there are new sheriffs in town. That's why to me this is fan fiction. The only Disney movie I loved and felt fit in with canon was Rogue One.

As we've all heard by now, the latest installment in the Star Wars Franchise has been turning heads for all the wrong reasons.

Although Critically, the film has done incredibly well, earning the ranking of "Certified Fresh" on the popular movie rating website Rotten Tomatoes. In terms of audience scores, however, it's the lowest rated Star Wars film since Phantom Menace.

To explain this odd conundrum, I have employed the help of Scranton Pennsylvania own "Michael Scott" playing the part of "Disney". The Cast Of "The Office" (Jim Halpert, Dwight Schrute, Andy Bernard, Kevin Malone & MORE) as The Critics of the film.

It's simple and hilarious in the very best ways

at 2:05 when Jim is laughing at the Porgs and Pam has to tell him to stop.

Thanks for the new thread Steph. I closed and de-topped the old thread and I topped this thread.

I saw a YouTube review from a pair of twin brothers who were talking about why they loved THAT "infamous" scene with Leia, you know:

Spoiler:


And it really gave me a fresh perspective on why that scene is special. One of the brothers talked about how it is done with her as the outline of an angel, like an angelic Princess, and he believes that was the true intention of Rian Johnson, to honor Carrie's memory and all that she meant to STAR WARS in that scene, and the video really touched me because he got very emotional and said he feels personally offended that so many so-called fans are making fun of it with the silly references (Mary Poppins, Superman etc) because he believes Rian had a greater purpose in how to utilize her force powers in a representation of Carrie's everlasting spirit within the SW franchise.

Anyway, I know that was long-winded but like I said, the reviewer really made me view it in a positive light and appreciate why Rian did what he did in that scene.

They were probably waiting for Episode IX to do the big Mother/Son reunion stuff but obviously with Carrie's passing, that won't be on the cards.

That said, Kylo's decision to

Spoiler:


...Is something I found very moving. Say what you will about him, but there IS still light in there. At the end of the day, he's a young man trying his best to be the baddest villain around, yet there is STILL something in him that lets him know he cannot quite go ALL the way into that darkness.

Part of the reason why Ben Solo is now Kylo Ren is because he felt personally abused by a family member, so this seems kind of ironic.

I feel like the only person on the internet who felt that Luke Skywalker's character was respected in this movie.

Spoiler:



I will be back soon with more thoughts, but for now:

1) Adam Driver's performance is top-notch Oscar worthy, in my opinion. Hope he is recognized at the Golden Globes, too. The incredibly layered performance he gives in this dual personality of Kylo Ren and Ben Solo is MESMERIZING and I'm proud that we have such a talented actor who was chosen to play both the lead villain and Han and Leia's son.

2) Without spoiling it, I thought the throne room scene was the very best scene in STAR WARS history, equal to Han Solo frozen in carbonite in ESB.

I actually liked the scene so I don't see the issue people have with it, however TLJ was filmed, obviously, while Carrie was still alive and they've said they changed none of Leia's scenes in the editing room after Carrie's death, so I don't see how anything could be related to honoring her in TLJ other than the post-credit screen
