I don’t get it. SW is full of “anachronistic” dialogue. Especially anything Han has to say when he calls Leia “sister” in a very 70s way and references things like crop dusting.

People grew up with the OT so they don’t think twice about it.

Either that or apparently SW has never had sardonic or snarky humor, which I guess means I’ve been watching the wrong movies.

It’s not the fact that it’s snarky that sticks out to us. The dialogue, the line delivery, and pacing of the TLJ mom joke conversation feel like 2010s humor.

humor will strike different folks differently of course.

the mom joke opening is probably my least favorite part of TLJ, and i really like the movie. but i think it is a bit of an over-reach to call things “not star warsy”.
