get the fuck outta here with this generic fanfictiony garbage
GET THE FUCK OUT JJ ABRAMS, YOU FUCKING CHARLATAN HACK, HOW WAS THIS EMOTIONALLY CLOYYING HYPER-NOSTALGIC GARBAGE EVER MADE???
oh wait, it was produced by disney, that's how.
i can't imagine a worse send-off for this series, i can't imagine a bigger fuck you to the amazing legacy of george lucas, mark hamill, harrison ford and especially carrie fisher, who gets treated like a puppeted corpse here. the amazing talents of john boyega and oscar isaac are utterly ignored, abrams refuses to do anything interesting here with these new characters in favor of wallowing in farcical nostalgia. what a fucking waste. rey literally gets made into a stock disney princess, all her potential is wasted.
i had a lot of issues with the last jedi, but at least it was a film with a mildly interesting direction & ambition. this shit is fucking nothing, it's a boring corporate product that mocks george lucas' vision. fuck this shit, i'm washing my hands of it and the rest of this insipid trilogy.
