Since it just opened in the U.S., here’s a good cartoon...
Star Wars VIII
sorry.... i did NOT like this movie. boring and silly
example of silly....
at the beginning of the movie... both sides are in battle in space... NO Gravity.. NO up or down...
1. ships that are shot.. they fall downwards????????????
2. Bombers ... that DROP down bombs????????
rate this movie ... 5 stars.. out of 10
They've never been strong on the reality of spaceflight. Never mind all the sounds you can hear, the ships have always banked like aircraft when they turn, despite there being no aerodynamic lift involved. And actually they had TIE Bombers in The Empire Strikes Back (bombing an asteroid that the Falcon was hiding in, when a rock that size would have produced a negligible gravitational pull).
And of course if you really tried to build a laser sword...
I'm not so far down the rabbit hole as to get on the "have it expunged from the record" bandwagon, but I didn't care for it. Good movie. Bad Star Wars movie.
Still looking forward to seeing it
If you're a fan of the franchise I highly recommend you do. Like I said, it wasn't what I was looking for but I learned a long time ago that people like what people like. There are some EPIC Star Wars moments that I'm glad I saw, glad I didn't miss. But there are beats that just don't work for me. I have heard a lot of people that LOVE it. So you may be one on that side of the fence.
Either way, like I said before ... it's a very good movie. Just not what I wanted for an Episode 8. JMHO.
You'll all be thrilled with Star Wars IX, The Search for More Money.
Jumanji was way way better!!!!
9 start out of 10
It was only on for five days here last week, and the Saturday evening we went was only about 10 people in.
I think Paddington II did better than Star Wars VIII here. Seems like China's opinion of it is, meh!...want more Marvel superhero or Transformers movies.
Watch it plummet downwards hahaaa
its somewhere in the air somewhat, hahaaa
Watch Luke doge a lightsaber like Neo.
I sense a division in the force.
I sense that the Walt Disney Company has worn the force out.
Not yet @mikedt
There's at least one good movie left.
In the end it was a complete flop in China.
Star Wars Last Jedi is a FLOP in China: ‘It’s been completely PULLED from cinemas already’
Hopefully they can do better next time.
Although I think the PRC never really took much to Star Wars anyway was because of....
The first Star Wars movie that was really allowed here was The Phantom Menace in 2001.
Wow. I think it is a safe bet that had episode one (Phantom Menace) actually been the first Star Wars movie, none of the others would have been made. Ugh.
i counter that argument with: Pitch Perfect.. they just released a 3rd!
I remember being in Colorado when the empire strikes back came out, some movie theater in Denver was having this contest the first ten people in line got free tickets and this star wars gift package, it had a shirt, hat, sunglasses, bunch of toys and a poster. These two guys stayed in line for two weeks to win.
Stay on topic @dan330.
Personally I'm having a hard time getting through "The Last Jedi".
Episode 4 was good though.
Just a thought...given the topic, a better suggestion might be (from ep. IV): "Stay on target."
No physical fitness standards in the rebel forces. That's why they'll win eventually.
