Mark Hamill says movies today don't need to be good, all they need to do is make money. Wow that's pretty honest of him to say that.

Has anyone seen the new Star Wars movie yet? How come all the critics praised it but all the fans hated it? That's weird. See the fan reviews below.

One of the IMDB reviews is even titled "I wanted to cry after the first 90 minutes". Geez. Those are harsh words to use in a movie review. lol

Also, if they keep killing off the original characters of the original trilogy, then that's a stupid move because the Star Wars franchise won't be as appealing without them. The new characters cannot sell a good Star Wars movie by themselves without any of the legendary characters of the original trilogy. People aren't gonna be as excited to just see the new young characters alone, which are pretty random generic characters with no charisma.

Ok I just saw it yesterday - Star Wars 8: The Last Jedi. It wasn't bad like so many reviewers claimed. The action was very non-stop and riveting and moved in many stages. Kind of like Empire Strikes back where there were three stages - Hoth Battle, Dagoba and Asteroids Chase, and Cloud City - except that there were many more stages here. That gave it a big variety of scenes and plot levels. In that sense it was exciting and fast moving. There were also some surprises and plot twists, especially at the end, which I never saw coming. lol. Also they tried new things this time, and didn't rehash the same things as before.

However, it was annoying at times, and some of the supporting characters were annoying and pointless and distracting. For example that black guy Finn, the former stormtrooper, and ugly Asian troll named Rose, had too many scenes which I felt were wasted. They are very subpar actors that belong in a cheap sitcom on cable, not a major blockbuster or legend like Star Wars. If they can get on Star Wars, then why can't I? They aren't very likable characters either, nor do they have any charisma or appeal. Yet around 20 or 30 minutes of the movie were wasted on them. Are we supposed to like them or care about them? I'm not sure why. They are way too bland, and that Asian troll was ugly and not even decent looking. She looked like a loser and nerd in college whom everyone ignores and has to act like a smart aleck to get attention. I wouldn't do her if someone paid me. Casting those two characters was a big mistakes in my opinion. They are a total waste of time.

* Spoiler here: Also when the Empire captured them, I expected them to be immediately executed. There was no need to keep them around. Yet they took forever to execute them and at the last minute they decided to try to torture them instead, because Phantasma said they didn't deserve a quick last blast. Then just as they were about to torture them, the whole Imperial flagship was hit by a stupid female admiral from the resistance flagship going into warp speed to do a suicide crash. And all the stormtroopers in the hanger were killed except for Finn and Rose. Stupid. There too many split second luck timing events like this, which are overdone and too implausible. You can't get saved by luck every time at the last second like that.

Also, I don't get why they put those stupid pesky bird creatures in it. And why would Chewbacca put them in the Millenium Falcon? Are they supposed to be cute and funny? Are we supposed to go "awwwwwww how cute" when we see them? lol. If so I didn't react that way. How cheap do you think my tastes are? That I would see some weird CGI birds and react emotionally to them? lol. What do you think I am? Retarded? lol. They were totally pointless and distracting from each scene.

Putting in those dumb CGI birds is about as smart as when George Lucas put Jar Jar Binks in the prequels and assumed that most people would like him, and everyone is wondering, "What was George Lucas smoking?! NO ONE likes Jar Jar Binks! Everyone can see that."

Other than those annoying distractions and bad unattractive unappealing characters, it was a good movie overall in terms of plot, action, and twists.
