Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse lol. It's as if these aren't selling
The Last Jedi is good actually
- waaaah, Luke actually grew as a person instead of being the exact same character he was 30 years ago.
- waaaah, Rey is a Mary Sue (if you ignore how much of a Mary Sue Luke is in IV).
- waaaah, Reys parents aren't important and I want to be spoonfed the exact same plot twist I was given in Empire.
- waaaah, Canto Blight sucks and I'm incapable of understanding even the most simplistic and heavy-handed anti-capitalism allegory.
- waaaah, this movie series that had villains sending 'stormtroopers' to commit genocide against those with a different ideology and was originally written as an allegory for the Vietnam War was apolitical until the put a woman with purple hair in it!
- waaaah, seeing a woman float through space ruined the sanctity of the realism of a film series about space wizards with psychic powers and laser swords.
- waaaah, I want the backstory of an established villain to be fleshed out in excessive detail while also hating the prequels and not realising the irony.
- waaaah, I hate women and I will make an 8-hour takedown video for YouTube to convince others that I don't.

Actually I think TP S3 is the greatest tv show of last decade

I'm just messing, man!

I didn't hate TLJ but think Rian went a wee bit far with subversion of expectations.....but parts of it were sublime. I felt a bit let down as I think Looper & Brick see absolute classics, so I just expected better - some parts were just head scratching - Leia Poppins, BB8 overkill, complete wasted Phasma, and the whole Casino thing was dumb.

But I did like Luke's island stuff, the Kylo / Rey dynamic & the battles were great.

I think episode IX is gonna be pretty special if JJ is doing what he says ie completing the circle of all 9. I reckon Anakin making a comeback......

What makes it worse is that every one of those 'points' is a (seemingly disingenuous) misinterpretation of what are valid complaints about the movie.

What I've noticed in a lot of places is that it seems some of those defending The Last Jedi misconstrue things about the previous movies to try to make TLJ seem fine - E.g. the claim that Luke is a Mary Sue in A New Hope when there is nothing to support that at all.

Yup there's a lot to like in TLJ but also a lot to dislike to the point it ruins the movie.

The Leia scene I'd say is one of the worst in all 8 SW films, worse than Anakin lying in a field shouting romantic rubbish

I'd still.love for Hayden to turn up in episode ix

If we can thank Ruin Johnson for one thing is it made Disney learn that fans want more of the same - I think So IX is going to have a lot of big fan pleasing moments. They'll be desperate to get the franchise back on track

Nothing to support the claim that Luke is a mary sue other than the fact that he goes from simple farm boy to hero of the entire resistance and sole destroyer of the death star in about a week?

It's more subtle though isn't it.....

Rey goes from being a nobody on Jakku to using Jedi mind tricks, then beating an established force user trained since a kid (Kylo).....

Luke uses a bit of the force to fire that torpedo down the tunnel. It is already mentioned that Luke is a pilot so it's not a stretch for him to pilot the xwing. He doesn't battle any force users with saber.

I'll be clear though I don't have a problem with Reys arc, and pretty sure we'll get a big revelation about her next film that explains that she had had these powers already had they were 'woken'

People forget we still have a whole film which is going to plug a lot of so called plot holes.

A mary-sue is a character that typically succeeds at pretty much everything they do without having to go through growth or hardship along the way to do so, or is unnaturally skilled in a way that isn't earned. What Luke does in A New Hope in no way fits the idea of a Mary Sue character, the most 'skilled' thing he does is let the force guide a single shot after being told to do so by Obi-Wan after recieving enough training to have a basic idea how to use the force, and after him having the skills to pilot an X-wing was already acknowledged and set up by the movie. It's all something that's part of his growth in the movie as it's all established along the way.

It's also a character who is pure and can do no wrong. Rey flirting with the dark side puts accusations of her being a Mary sue in the grave as far as I'm concerned.

They don't ruin it, but could be cut out & I think they missed a trick - if Leia has died at that spot it would have been perfect.

But let's see, she's in episode ix so hopefully she'll get a good send off.

Rey excels at everything to such an extent that she makes all the other skilled characters seem pathetic in comparison, accomplyshing things that completely out-do them without any actual training (and neither is she actually trained by Luke, just his 'lessons' which he doesn't even complete) - Flying the Falcon amazingly for the first time in a way that surpasses everyone we've seen flying it (and she even says she "doesn't know how" she did it), Jedi Mind Trick despite not even knowing she was Force Sensitive or having even the slightest interaction with a Jedi, using a Lightsaber for the first time and doing quite well against a Dark Side user trained in Lightsaber Combat, her 3-in-1 shot on the Falcon Turret, being able to not only survive but defeat multiple of the elite melee-trained bodyguards of Snoke despite not being trained how to fight to an extent anywhere near that, casually lifting tons of rocks - something where it took Yoda a significant amount of effort to lift a few rocks in AOTC or Luke's X-wing in ESB. Even her going to the Dark Side cave isn't seen as something that has any consequences for her, it's just brushed off as a casual thing like "Oh no you went to the Dark Side, ok no problem lets move on" and that's it. There are many examples of her just doing whatever she tries to do without any significant problems in doing so, nothing she does has any long-lasting consequences.

Yet you think Luke is a Mary Sue, the guy who whines about his Jedi training and arrogantly abandons it to rush off to try to save his friends despite Jedi Masters telling him not to and that he's not ready to face Vader, only for them to be proven right when he tries to take on Vader and loses a hand in the process before being trapped in a situation he can't escape from and has to rely on his friends then rescue him instead? He shows flaws, makes mistakes because of them, there are consequences for it and he learns and grows.

Exactly, agree with all your points, no way is Luke anything like a Mary Is it is such a lazy and desperate argument to try and defend Rey.

However I do think we will find out why Rey is so adept at using the force in Ep IX - there is no way there is not more to it. I still go back to that point in TFA where Snoke says there has been an 'awakening' which is Rey. Something went on on her childhood which has been either blocked out or wiped. When we find out what then hopefully a lot of this stuff you've mentioned will have more context. She shows she is quite a good fighter on Jakku when she beats those guys up with her pole. We see she is athletic climbing all the downed star Destroyers, and it's feasible she knew how to pilot ships - when you throw in the force *awakening* they are the added skills. It's just a different slant than Luke who instead as you say learns & grows. I won't have a problem with Reys skillset as long as they explain the awakening in her. I'lf they don't, then it's Mary Sue all the way.
