Trivia

The original opening of the movie had the camera tilting down from the crawl to find Finn waking up in the healing suit. See more »

Goofs

In the opening sequence the bombers are going to throw bombs on an enemy ship. Since they are in space this won't work. Bombs don't fall down in space. They would need some kind of fire device to fire them down. The canon of this movie confirms that these bombs are magnetic in nature (where?) and would therefore be attracted to an enemy spaceship's hull. If this were true then why not fire dozens of small, fast moving projectiles from a distance instead of using large, slow bombers to deliver the payload? See more »

Quotes

Resistance Evacuation Officer: We're not clear yet. There are still 30 pallets of cannon shells in C bunker.
Lieutenant Connix: Forget the munitions, there's no time. Just get everyone on the transports.
[Star Destroyers appear]
Lieutenant Connix: Oh, no.

Is it a parody?
14 December 2017 | by MoodyHankSee all my reviews

There are some well written and comprehensive reviews on here already so I won't waste your time in the details.

Essentially, the entire first half of The Last Jedi feels like a Star Wars parody. Instead of the odd moment of humour every now and again, every scene AND character is a comedian in TLJ. It's a crap gag a minute. And some of the great work done The Force Awakens to re-energise the franchise was just completely undone. You know that incredibly significant and poignant moment at the end of TFA as Rey hands the lightsabre to Luke? Just wait and see what happens next.

I've rated it 4 stars because the second half of the film does pick up but by then the damage is done. TLJ is a huge misstep in the franchise.
