I just watched TLJ for the first time. What a steaming pile of horseshit. Almost nothing redeeming about it. I actually liked TFA. Thought it was a fitting tribute piece and set up a number of interesting plot points for the sequels. I can’t believe this movie essentially threw all of those setups out the window.
I hope whoever approved this trash has been shown the door at Disney. This movie was almost as unwatchable as The Phantom Menace, and that is saying something. Not to mention the zero character development.
The only way this can be redeemed is with some major (and I mean major) plot twist in Episode 9. They’ve backed the story into such a corner it’s going to be pretty bloody difficult to redeem it.
