Obviously you didn’t like TLJ either and like me, probably wish you could go back in time and decide to not watch it?

That would be nice. But really I just wish they never made it in the first place.

I’d be interested to see a break down of your thoughts on TLJ like you did for TFA earlier in this thread

Cool. I’ll try to do that at some point in the review thread like you mentioned.

I’m not a mod or anything, but that’s a spoiler, man. You should do something about that.

Shocker based on your laundry list of complaints with the TFA which basically amounted to “I don’t like it because it’s not exactly what I wanted it to be.”

What I think are faults and what I would do to fix them are related, but they are two different things. Most narrative predicaments have more than one possible solution, and in many cases, there is a myriad of possible solutions. There are probably a lot of directions TFA could have gone in that I would have liked, even if it were built on the same narrative foundation that exists in the film.

As for seeing TLJ in theater, what can I say? I didn’t anticipate liking it, and I didn’t want to vote “yes” with my wallet (however small a difference that might make). And yet, it appears I care too much about the franchise to not know what they are doing with it, good or bad, and to not be part of it when it happens. At this point though, I think I’m pretty much checked out of the theatrical Star Wars experience. I’ve given up on the sequel trilogy. But I’ll probably see Episode IX on video just to see what they do. Who knows, I might even have another momentary lapse in principals and actually go out and get the back of my seat kicked.
