    <Alternative Fact>
    Plot of this movie is that everything that happened was just a dream Luke had while on the Millennium Falcon just after they escaped Tattoine in "A New Hope".
    </Fact>

    An alternative take on the title by a musician I really like. (For reference, this came about due to a silly conversation between the artist, John Danielle and Rian Johnson on Twitter.)

    Yea watching the first trailer... ummm Darth Vader??? If that pansy Kylo thinks he can put on Vader's armor and be anything but a pansy, he's a pansy. Thats at least what Im guessing. And there is a shot of someone who looks a lot like Arcann (SWTOR). THAT would be interesting...

    Yeah it got me for a sec too. Once I saw deeper into it I knew it was bs. With the force awakens we already had at least one trailer over a year out from the release.

    Although I do feel that Arcann would definitely make Last Jedi a lot more interesting. Better than Kylo Ren imo. I dont know what is with Star Wars and whiny emo characters. Luke Skywalker isnt whiny enough? Fine, emo Anakin. Not enough? Fine, super emo Kylo. All of them seem to have daddy/mommy issues too. Thats why Han is the man. :)

    I hated, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Seriously hoping this one will be better written. From everything I've gathered on the internet, Rae, is the reincarnated soul of Anakin Skywalker. She is the new "Chosen One" and even Anakin wasn't the first. Also, she's supposed to be going Grey Jedi, and everything will end with no more Sith, and no more Jedi in the final movie. Like, basically, they've already decided the way to end Star Wars, is to completely wipe out the acknowledgement of the Force. The Force will always be there, but once the Jedi and Sith wipe each other out, the knowledge of it's existence dies with them...

    How true this is, I don't know. It's just the most popular thing going around at the moment. Supposedly, there's leaked scripts, which I believe to be b.s....but hey, it's the internet, I'll pass along some gossip...

    That's what I've gathered. And if so, I definitely am caring less and less about the story. The Expanded Universe is so much better than this mess by Disney. I will still go see it because I want to be proven wrong. But there's just something special missing from these new movies that was always in the Lucas movies, even the bad prequels.

    Agreed. Even though the hardcore people hated the new Lucas films, I genuinely felt they were Star Wars. Even if, Hayden Christensen, kinda ruined the 2nd movie, I thought he was just right for the third one. Maybe should have been a little older...

    I didn't feel anything Star Wars about The Force Awakens. It was a total zombie movie. There was body, but no soul...I'd hate to see Star Wars end with no Force wielders...It kind of deflates your the entire Star Wars Universe...

    Blah! That would be an awful ending. I hope the rumors aren't true.

    I'm right there with you, I don't know if I hated it, but it wasn't good for me. I walked out of every prequel movie and at least thought I got my moneys worth, I enjoyed them when I watched them for the first time, but when I walked out of TFA I was like "Meh".

    I have the movies ranked as follows.

    I do tiers for my Star Wars movies because they can flip flop depending on my mood of the day, but here they go. They are also currently ordered to how I feel about them.

    Tier 1
    Empire Strikes Back
    Rogue One
    Return of the Jedi

    Tier 2
    Revenge of the Sith
    A New Hope

    Tier 3
    The Force Awakens
    Episode 1
    Episode 2


    Rogue One though, That was a good modern Star Wars Movie, and if it wasn't for that I wouldn't be all that excited to see Episode 8, I'd still see it opening night and buy tickets ahead of time and all that normal Star Wars stuff, but I still don't have the hype for it as I had for Episode 7 and Rogue One.

    Personally its all about the Han Solo movie for me! If that sucks I will never watch a Disney movie again. :D

    Mine would be a little different. Supposedly I saw ANH when I was an infant haha.

    Return of the Jedi
    A New Hope
    Episode 2 (not for the Anakin story, but for the Jango Fett-Obi Wan story)
    Empire Strikes Back
    Rogue One (this one might go up the list given time)
    Episode 1 (Qui Gonn!)
    Episode 3
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    Episode 7

    Mine are pretty close to Trip's.

    Tier 1

    Empire Strikes Back
    Rogue One
    Return of the Jedi

    Tier 2
    A New Hope
    Revenge of the Sith

    Tier 3
    Episode 1
    Episode 2

    Tier 100
    The Force Awakens

    That's right...Tier 100...because TFA was that bad! I saw a fan-made budget piece of garbage that was better than TFA on youtube. Rogue One on the other hand...that was a stroke of genius! I loved that movie. It had Star Wars all over it; it had soul. I hope the other spin-offs are just as good as Rogue One. *Crosses fingers* They have some serious work for Episode 8 to be any good after that TFA disaster. I'm only interested because even if it's bad, I have to watch Star Wars. As Rick James would say, "Star Wars is a Helluva drug...hehehe"

    are we doing ratings?

    Tier 1
    Return of the Jedi
    A New Hope
    Revenge of the Sith

    Tier 2
    Empire Strikes Back
    The Force Awakens

    Tier 3
    Episode 2
    Rogue One
    Episode 1

    I really in no way understand the love for Rogue One. I got a bunch of characters I hated (and the Droid was just about the worst comic relief that has ever existed), not to mention the whole Saw Garrera arc was pointless. Am I expected to be emotionally invested in the fate of a character that I've known for 15 minutes? The first like hour of the movie was really tedious set up for a pretty good last 30 minutes of the movie.

    And why do the rebels follow Jynn so readily, why isn't the other dude the one in charge of the suicide mission? You know, the guy who actually has some experience under his belt. She felt like a Mary Sue in just about every way to me.

    I just... I mean it was an ok movie... but I don't understand why it's so well regarded here. I dunno, I wasn't alive when the prequels came out, although I do love them. But just... maybe my sensibilities are different? Haha

    I can see that assessment. Honestly Garrera was the worst part of the story. I strongly disagree on the droid though. For me and my friends, he reminded us a little of HK. And it's Alan Tudyk! And so much better than a Jar-Jar or Ewok or whoever was supposed to be funny in TFA but really wasnt. Also can agree on Jynn, she irked me at times. My favorite characters are Cassian and Imwe (the Monk). Definitely middle of the list for me, but it didnt put me to sleep so thats a good thing. :D

    how are people putting Force Awakens anywhere but last place on the list? That I cannot understand. That was THE WORST movie I've seen in years, not to mention the worst Star Wars by far. The camera work, special effects, the acting, the story, the plot holes. It's like someone took swiss cheese, laid it on a newspaper which made it pick up mirror images, then put it in a garbage disposal.

    If that's your honest opinion, it's been far too long since you've seen The Phantom Menace. WAY worse than The Force Awakens.

    You sir, need a psychiatrist! Sit with me, talk with me, I will charge only $200 an hour, but I would love to hear how TPM was worse than TFA.

    Haha I'm on the fence really. Qui-Gonn and Obi-Wan made TPM bearable. But the rest.. yes very cheesy. Just like TFA at least had Han and Star Wars Sophia (Golden Girls... old alien person...whatever). But the rest... very bad. Cheesy vs bad. Eh... TOmaTO toMAto. But Darth Maul is definitely cooler than Kylo Ren. But Leia. Both movies had horrible HORRIBLE space battles. And TFA's super ultra Nazi regime mess.... just no. But Jar-Jar... shivers. Cant we just agree both are better left unwatched? :p

    I don't agree with that at all. I think TFA was everything it could have been and needed to be considering the baggage it had to deal with. It reconciled the old with the new, which was the necessary thing to do to allow for any new movies.

    And as for Kylo Ren you weren't intended to like him yet. This was as much the beginning of his story as it was of Rey's, and if that's not how you read the film then I think you didn't catch the right plot points.

    By the way, I don't mean you in particular Alban. Just... everyone. Lol
