    Just finished watching this (the credits are literally rolling as I type!), was good fun, not sure why theres been such bad press about it.

    Not that I actually know what people don't like (don't read reviews or anything spoilerific), presumably all the "girl power" which I had no problem with.

    A few gratingly cheesy lines sure (mostly from the SHE-3PO character), but thats Star Wars, nothing overly stupid like the Luke sucking back fresh alien green breastmilk hah!

    Liked the cameos/returns, callbacks to situations, costumes, aliens and lines from the original trilogy, and most of all, mothernerfin' Chewie. <3 Chewie 4 lyf

    Glad I saw it (and still sad that Rogue One is the only SW film I didn't see at the cinema).

    Ok so I finally got around to downloading this for free so I don't have to pay for Disney shit, and what initially struck me was how little I gave a f**k about this film.

    This film was so boring I started doing something else and didn't finish it. Who knows what the f**k happened in it because I sure as f**k didn't care.

    Oh look, Disney are starting to realise how badly they are f**king up this franchise.

    I just showed my young fella TPM. What a f**king pile of utter shit. It has aged far worse than I thought it would.

    Anything that heavy on the CGI was always going to age terribly IMO.

    Alright, I have a confession to make...

    I took the time tonight to properly watch this film with no distractions and I actually ended up really enjoying it. I'm not sure if it's because I went in with really low expectations or because The Last Jedi was such an insufferable pile of shit, but I liked it almost as much as Rogue One.

    Disney has done a pretty good job with these one-off movies. Pity about the new trilogy.

    Ha.

    I was same.
    Underwhelmed at cinema.
    Went in to JB and had to wait (with kids ). They had Solo on and we watched for a bit and I ended up buying it to continue to watch at home. Really enjoyed it second time around.

    Solo wasn’t too bad, just a shame they tried to ruin it with the SJW droid and Pansexual Lando.

    Or maybe it just seemed much better coming after the steaming pile of shit that was the last Jedi???

    The Last Jedi changed everything. Even the prequels appear better now.

    I disagree guys Solo was boring and tbat music when Solo entered the bar was horrendous, The only good Star Wars film from Disney is Rogue one..I have appreciated the prequels even more now...

    I didn't mind the SJW droid to be honest, and I don't think the pansexual Lando thing was all that obvious in the movie itself.

    Han shooting Beckett was like a big f**k you to Lucas' never ending meddling with the Han/Greedo scene from A New Hope. I thought that was perfect. Darth Maul was a great surprise too.

    It was that on release. I find the hatred for TLJ bemusing in a world where the prequels exist.

    Seems to me people don't like TLJ because it wasn't what they wanted the film to be, but the prequels were just straight up garbage, badly written, badly acted and badly directed.

    I actually like TLJ too.

    I know that neither the film or liking it is popular. But so what.

    Apparently the original series is getting another make over esp ROTJ with jazzed up deleted scenes that some were on Blu Ray and lot of aerial battle stuff that was cut and not included in deleted scenes etc.

    I'm interested but since I've been watching these since Betamax video, I just don't know how many more versions of the films I actually need, to the point I used to think I knew the Original Series off by heart and now I don't.

    The original series is getting another make over??? This doesn't suprise me Disney want to milk it as much as they can, after all they did buy Lucasfilm for over $4billion. Seriously though what would make Star Wars fans happy if Disney decide to release the original films before George messed around with them.

    Yeah, I can't see the point of updating the old versions, but then again Lucas updated them himself ... it will be interesting how the Disney haters spin this with that in mind.

    That would be awesome. I think I saw them all in the late 90s when they were re-released, would love to see them again in the cinema.

    I found this move to be .... utter shit.

    Given the broad canvas to work with given the character, this movie was just boring. It hurt the character more than enhancing it.
