I went back and watched it again....and then again after that...and....

Anyway, I just realize that they are continuing the trend set in The Force Awakens. We STILL don't have a clear shot of Luke in the Trailer! Sure, we get the back of his head on one shot and a silhouetted Skywalker in the doorway....but STILL no clear shot! WTF!

Psychedy psychedy.  Very curious about those flying car dealies, or why the girl from Gortimer Gibbons is in the First Order.

Now THIS is how you do a trailer. Unlike Justice League, with each new Star Wars Trailer, I get more and more pumped.

Okay, I'm doing a great job of avoiding spoilers (so far), but all I'm seeing are headlines that this movie absolutely sucks. I see that there is a petition to remove The Last Jedi from Star Wars Canon and even more shocking is hearing that Mark Hamill himself is slamming his own performance and saying it's "not my Luke Skywalker". Seriously, what the f*ck is going on. Without divulging any plot points or spoilers about The Last Jedi, is this movie really that bad? This is all so unnerving.

I'm seeing it tonight.

I don't know if it's bad, but a lot of people are upset because it really changes the status quo.  It's more about the content than the presentation, I've actually heard really great things about it, and I think this is just fanboy purists bitching and whining (the same ones who had issue with a black Stormtrooper, or hate Rey on principle).

You want to know why you're seeing headlines?  Cause those grab readers.  There's a limited lifespan of "That movie was great, right?" (and a while before "let's talk about this under-appreciated gem" which a Star Wars movie can never be), but bitching and moaning about something-- especially something that has such a big fanbase-- guarantees clicks and guarantees ad revenue.

Yeah, I get that...but when you have Mark literally bashing the movie, or more specifically how Luke comes across (a dis at the Director and / or Film Editor), there is legitimate concern here. Anyway, when you get back from the movie tonight, let me know if people are blowing this out of proportion. No Spoilers of course. Just a simple yes or no will suffice. Once I see the flick for myself, we can have a more in depth discussion like always.

I can get why Mark might have an issue with what Luke did... it certainly seems out of character, but it's also the end result of a LOT that we don't see.  But it's right for the movie, and I think it is in tune with the character and how he's not pure.  He has issues, for sure, he's a main character in the movie and he works them out.

I'll say more in the spoilers thread, but watch this movie.  Especially on the big screen (I saw it in what I think was 2:1 IMAX, it looks amazing on that).

It's polarizing, and I'll say it's not perfect, but it swings big.

Some of the complaints, now that I read them, are exactly what I thought.  One dude complaining about SJWs, I just wanna say "b*tch, they're the REBELLION, they're fighting to bring peace, freedom and equality to the universe.  They are LITERALLY warriors for social justice.  Did you not notice that until now?"

I also have to say that since I avoided spoilers or fan theories and so on, I enjoyed it more... and I think you were the same, no knowledge is good knowledge in this case.  I can see a lot of people having issue because the movie they made up in their head was so off the mark.  Ironically, though I didn't have fan theories, I had a wishlist of things I wanted to see and the last couple movies have been knocking all the stuff off in ways I hadn't expected.

It's also worth pointing out what the fan reactions to The Empire Strikes Back were like when that movie came out.
