Looks as bad as the last Jedi. Saving my moneyOctober 21, 2019 at 7:13 pm #1203146896
I don’t believe the “saga is over”, Do you?

It does indeed look bad and the music didn’t fit well. I wouldn’t be mad if they went over 3h cause The Last Jedi was such a waste of time in narrative they have a lot to cover. But apparently is only 2h30min.
Probably a mess but excited to see it.

Jojo Rabbit? Please.
The Irishman? A $175m boondoggle.

I thought the trailer looked very strong. I personally didn’t dislike The Last Jedi (I don’t like it as much as when I first watched it, but it’s better than the prequels, having several great moments even if it takes a few missteps), but I acknowledge that it didn’t set up the end of this story very well (it’s pretty shocking to think that Rian Johnson was allowed so much creative control with such an enormous franchise when he had no prior involvement). Still I’m looking forward to this film and I hope JJ Abrams can give a meaningful conclusion to my favorite franchise. If Abrams had directed The Last Jedi, I’m certain the fan base wouldn’t be as terrible as it is right now. Chances are it would still be terrible, but less so.October 21, 2019 at 7:40 pm #1203146930

I enjoyed the trailer, I think they’re strategically not revealing too much storywise which is appreciated. The visuals and score stood out the most for me, the score, visual effects, production design and sound categories looks on par to garner nominations.October 21, 2019 at 8:47 pm #1203146998
Okay, huge geek rant. So my biggest complaint about this Star Wars trilogy might be an unpopular one but here it is: Rey shouldn’t be the lead. She should’ve never have been the main protagonist. This should be Ben Solo’s story and in this final film, the primary focus should be on his redemptive character arc. She’s a boring character and (sorry) a complete Mary Sue. I get that JJ Abrams’ and Kathleen Kennedy’s idea was to give the main storyline to a female character to show the progression of acceptance in Hollywood and I was originally absolutely gaga for that idea. The concept on paper was great; with a strong female character and inclusivity of all backgrounds. However, It didn’t pan out that way. As shown with this particular character, Rey, very few men in Hollywood know how to write female characters (with the exception of Quentin Tarintino and George RR Martin) without making them overly emotional or just too damn perfect (think of book Hermione in Harry Potter vs movie Hermione). Very few male writers can see the grey areas of female characters and they are continued to be written as “black and white” with no real emotional depth. I seriously would’ve loved to have seen Rey lose a fight, not train herself and still be the biggest badass in the universe. Not that I didn’t love the trailer or this trilogy, but a much more complex character like Ben Solo, as the main protagonist, the anti-hero, would have made this 1000x better.October 21, 2019 at 10:15 pm #1203147091
Another sad thing about the newest trilogy is that they basically told us that our original heroes (Leia, Han, and Luke) were all terrible. Terrible parents, terrible leaders, terrible teachers, etc. It upsets me to my very core.October 21, 2019 at 10:17 pm #1203147093

Well that turns me right off.

its ironic how you chose to signal out these two in particular when both Tarantino and GOT have been criticized for their treatment of women (although I agree that the former has given us some great women- the latter had his women raped too often for me to give him credit)October 21, 2019 at 10:46 pm #1203147101

The Bride in Kill Bill is one of the best written female characters in cinema… I don’t care for his treatment of women in real life but he knows how to write them as does George. George writes his female characters grey not as Mary Sue’s. That’s what I’m getting at but I totally understand the being turned off by him do to the rapes but he writes them in a particular way. D&D definitely do not know how to write for women and just added the rapes for shock value. But George definitely knows how to write female characters in his books.October 21, 2019 at 11:16 pm #1203147117

It’ll be incredibly frontloaded as expected. The question is how leggy will it be and that all depends on the reviews and fan backlash. If the backlash is anything like The Last Jedi I don’t think it’ll make it 2B
