Problem with the Last Jedi is how they abused Luke. She made him weak, scared, and that was Disney’s doing. I do not blame Mark. Smoking must have lived and Luke also. Than Luke at the end tells him, “I will come for you.”

#LastJedi the last minutes of Rogue and One with the Father in the hall is a million times better than this whole film.

But the fans who did enjoy the film praised the film’s acting and enjoyed the analysis of some of the deeper meaning and the life lessons they gained after viewing.

Okay, some non spoiler thoughts about #LastJedi after my second viewing:

– Love.
– Rey is great.
– Kylo Ren is super exciting and one of the best characters in the new storyline.
Luke. Dude.
– Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Mark Hamill are phenomenal

#StarWars was a great movie! The wide shots of space battles scenes and scenes of the fighters “skating” on the red planet is certainly a draw EPICNESS

The biggest most obvious point in The Last Jedi is the lesson of letting go of the past and move forward. A lot of people that don’t like the movie probably won’t be able to let go of the old series.
