We're back for another spoiler review of The Last Jedi. There's no such thing as too much coverage for a Star Wars movie, so we assembled a team of fans to talk about the movie. We were impressed not only with how this story opens up the Star Wars Universe, but also with how much Rian Johnson utilizes the expanded universe canon.
Things we discussed include:
- The Last Jedi gave us all of the emotions.
- Opening up Star Wars to the future.
- Maz Kanata is the real MVP of the Star Wars universe.
- Ease up off your pitiful lightsaber battles.
- The amazing chemistry of the cast, and is Poe and Leia a thing?
- The Last Jedi was a stunning indictment of the Jedi.
- The Last Jedi wraps up Yoda's story arc.
- Finn's story arc and why critics might be missing something.
- Phasma is a horror movie villain.
- Leia's flight, and why dudebros can't let it go.
- The Last Jedi is a collection of dumb ideas that were doomed to fail...and that' was a good thing.
- Rey's 53% plan.
- The creepy relationship between mentors and students in Star Wars.
- The tragic story of Armitage Hux, and why we need a live action Rae Sloane.
- Your head canon is YOUR problem.
We cover all of this, plus occassionally go off the rails and into #TheThirstOrder.
