    Disappointed.

    Maybe it will get better after repeated viewing. The last two have a little.

    Star Wars IX

    Saw it last night. It was pretty good but it went to far towards the Infinity War strategy of trying to give each character their moment instead of just making a good story, IMO. Iím never sure when itís appropriate to start talking about spoilers but Iíll check back in with some specifics later.

    Was really hoping for a baby today cameo, but alas...

    I saw it last night too. I thought it was great. Easy to juxtapose the Luke Skywalker vis-ŗ-vis Darth Vader storyline to Rey and Ben. If I can make one criticism it would be that this movie had Too many storylines that were similar to those of older movies

    ^^ Yeah, saw it yesterday as well and thought it was pretty good. But you're right, a lot of the stories and characters are the same as they've always been. Instead of Luke we have Rey, and instead of Solo we have Poe, etc.

    Why sit in the back row? Might as well watch it on your laptop

    3D is better in the back. Heads same level as middle of screen. Looking straight forward instead of up.

    Word. That's true. You'll Go cross eyed sitting too close for 3D.
    Plus, vape hits are easier in the back row.

    Saw today. That was kind of weak.

    Are we discussing spoilers in this thread? If so, I have some questions....

    Meh. Not in the top 5 for sure. Still enjoyed it. Didn't see the major reveal coming.

    And the Disney multiplier on the Lucas cheese... unnecessary.

    Let him have it. It's not wise to upset a wookie.

    So no resolution on the kid with the broom from 8?

    That just makes me dislike 8 even more.

    I liked it. Which I should qualify by saying that I donít go into a Star Wars movie expecting greatness, in terms of complexity or depth. The original Star Wars was a fun space-based mix of Western and Fairy Tale, with, above all, amazing visuals, and by those standards, I found SW9 to be a worthy wrap-up of the saga. As a closing chapter of such an iconic series, Iím fine with "fan service", and echoes of earlier themes.

    SPOILERS:
    Didnít like: The endingís need to bestow "Skywalker" royalty status on Rey (plus the need to establish that sheíd come from evil-royalty to begin with). I thought the whole point of Rey, from the previous film, was that she was a nobody, who nevertheless could rise to greatness by her desire and actions. But no, itís Lion King all over again, some animals are rightfully born into status, while others belong in their lower rung places.
    Did like: After nine movies with the consistent theme of basically good people being tempted by the powers of evil and the evils of power, the Dark Side (indeed, the main story of the prequel trilogy is that an entire society, or intergalactic federation, quasi-democratic originally, allows itself to be corrupted, with some enthusiasm, to become the evil Empire), it was a satisfying ending for a major character, Kylo, to be seduced by the good side.

    More thoughts:

    I've seen just a small fraction of the superhero/supernatural action films that have been hits in the past decade, and yet I've seen enough of them to feel like they're big-budget puppet shows doing the same shit over and over again. For example, I found it hard to watch the Avengers movies without saying to myself, "really? archery? these guys can do this and that and leap through space-time, and they need somebody who can launch warheads with a bow and arrow?!?". And here, in Star Wars 9, of course, pyrotechnic archery is there in the mix; has to be, because more is more!

    And then there's that thing where the opposing protagonists finally get past the assorted combat games, and just raise their palms forward and exude pure Force energy, represented by waves of blue electric flux lines. It's in Star Wars 9, and in the Wonder Woman movie, same exact effect following the same exact progression. Which isn't to suggest that it was likely original in Wonder Woman, either.

    On the plus side, damn, SW9 was such a visual treat, throughout, and not even just the action sequences.

    I thiní what youíre saying is that the current crop of super heroes are TOO super and that the Star Wars movies have fallen prey to the same temptations to overdo it with all the force stuff. I agree.
