Star Wars Episode 9 (SPOILERS!!!!)

Recommended Posts

Yeah, my main complaint with the movie is that it felt like it should have been longer. I'm honestly very surprised they didn't just make it three hours long. Endgame proved that you can do that and still be extremely successful. This movie felt like it was trying to cram way too much into too little time.

Not everything has to be explained, but it would have been really nice if a few things were made more clear. For example, the red planet Kylo Ren is on at the beginning is apparently Mustafar, and the wayfinder he gets is at the site of the ruins of Vader's castle from Rogue One. That's not clear at all in the movie, especially because it looks like a completely different planet. I don't really need an explanation of how the Emperor survived. Some mystery is fun. But some things definitely could have been more clear. Like the Lando/Jannah thing.

I keep seeing rumors about an extended cut. I won't believe it unless we get an official announcement, but I do agree that the movie could use some extra time. Even if it doesn't add much, giving the movie a little more breathing room would be nice, because it's crazy fast-paced, especially the first half. I don't expect it to happen though.

Overall though I had so much fun seeing it again, I like it even more than I did before. Most of my complaints are nitpicky things and nothing huge. Like how I wish there would have been some background cameos of characters from the video games, books, and TV series. There are lots of members of the Resistance from other stories who could have at least had a 2-second cameo walking by in the background. Give me Shriv from Battlefront 2. He's the best. The main droid from Star Wars Rebels had a cameo like that in Rogue One. But yeah, unimportant nitpicky stuff like that are my main complaints.

Saw it for a third time tonight, unplanned. This movie is better every time I watch it. I'm not on the fence anymore, I love this movie.

There's something about the sequel trilogy movies that I have to warm up to every time. I walked out of The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker for the first times having enjoyed them, but also being kind of disappointed, to varying degrees. With Rogue One and Solo I instantly loved them the first times I saw them. I don't know why. I think my expectations for the main movies just get in the way of me fully enjoying them. There's so many things I hope to see happen, and then they don't happen, and it dampens the enjoyment a little. When I go back for repeat viewings knowing what I'm getting into and not expecting anything else I guess I appreciate and enjoy them way more.

Makes me want to buy Legos. Why are Legos so expensive?

They are and it doesn't make sense... We bought the Simpsons house in 2015 or so and it was almost 400 bucks.

$400 for Lego? That’s ridiculous.

Im actually getting to build some Star Wars Lego thing for my girlfriends work this weekend. Should be fun.

This mother fucker!

It was 2014 and my wife and I had just started dating. She loves Legos and so we went to the lego store and I let her get whatever she wanted. She picked this fucker. In my head I figured we put this together while having a few drink and then one thing would lead to another and I'd be the lego hero and maybe connect my piece to hers... It took fucking forever and at the end of it we were too damn tired and just went to bed.

I’m sure it’s 100% worth it to anyone that loves Lego but to someone that has never had an interest in it I just can’t understand how it can cost that much.

Dang that's an awesome Lego set though. But yeah, $400?? That's insane. Most of the Star Wars ones I want are crazy expensive too and I can't justify getting any of them. But building Legos is really fun and relaxing for me. If it was more affordable I'd have lots of them.

Made this quick vid for my own entertainment yesterday. Since you guys don't get to see my face often here I figured I'd share.

YouTube vids haven't been embedding here for me for the past few days so there's the boring dumb link instead!

I bought a beard trimmer like an hour after I made this video lol.
