I realize this might be an unpopular opinion here, but aside from the portrayal of Luke (which some people feel is just a matter of interpretation,) the non-Rey female characters were easily the worst parts of the film.
They have the most cringe-inducing dialogue: “I want to put my fist through this whole lousy beautiful town,” “if you need to see the sun shining to know it’s there, you’ll never last through the night,” and the clincher, “This is how we win. Not destroying what we hate. Saving what we love.” They also make accompanying nonsensical decisions, which I do not need to elaborate upon.
Holdo is a much more potent Mary Sue than Rey ever was. She has all the traits: comes out of nowhere, secretly Leia’s best friend all along, good at everything, unfairly disliked, outlandish hair color, gets an amazing self-sacrificial death scene performing an anime maneuver that heretofore did not exist.
So while this guy making a “no women” edit is a useful punching bag/lightning rod for almost literally everyone, that doesn’t make TLJ a feminist masterwork and it certainly doesn’t make the criticisms of the women in the movie invalid. Honestly I would end up making a lot of the same cuts/edits that he does.
It’s the same issue with 2016 Ghostbusters. “Checkmate, sexists! We put women in YOUR franchise!” Great! Were they funny? No. Actually, the black woman was a borderline offensive caricature. Was the movie good? Again, no. If anything, it sets the cause of women back by putting them in a terrible movie.
