    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    A while ago, I had this recurring dream that new Star Wars movies were coming out, but because of Reasons, I just somehow couldn't get out to see them! Obviously, these were Anxiety dreams, not quite approaching the intensity of nightmares, but still mildly annoying. Now that new SW movies actually ARE coming out, I curiously don't feel any need to rush out and see them, so maybe that's progress?

    Still, a friend convinced me to buy my ticket online so that I can see it with a group of friends, which I enjoy doing. Tomorrows' the day! After watching so many speculation videos on Youtube, it's almost unbelievable that by this time tomorrow I'll finally know the truth of it all...

    Anyone else going to see this soon? What are you expecting/hoping/dreading?

    Thanks! I'll check it out.

    My two favorite Star Wars channels, Star Wars Explained and Hello Greedo, both some retrospectives that I thought were really good. Of course, Patrick (H) Willems did a really good TLJ video a few months back I liked as well.

    People always gotta ruin things, and now it's part of someone's job. I'm not even a big Star Wars fan and find that despicable.

    Some of the hatedom YTers were running with this as absolute fact, and smugly declaring that they'll hear about Kennedy's resignation any day now, that it was victory for the "true fans".
    I'm always amused by the YouTube Star Wars haters. They act like they're the end all be all of Star Wars fans and what they say will have any sway over the execs at Disney. lol.

    I guess we will see with how well Episode IX does. that contract might not mean much if it does poorly at the box office.

    Well, so much for "fans" being so self-assured that Kennedy was going to get fired...

    That's... not really necessary to apply the phrase "side with".

    Like, to side with his argument. Side with his personality. "Hey, we're the only ones who can understand each other, let's stick together and figure out this crazy universe as we go". Not necessarily that he's got an organisation or fully developed ideology.

He's fought very hard... and basically has gotten what he wanted (even if not how he wanted it) and now has no idea what to do with it since it didn't turn out like he thought it would. He's a dog that caught the car.

    Similarly, one of my favorite character moments in the movie is Hux's 'Oh shit' face as he sees Kylo raging at the end. That moment is such a breaking point for his character as he realizes there's no one else in charge anymore. No one to lead them. No one to give him the external validation he craves. No one to curry favor with. No one to control Kylo. Hux is the most capable person in the room now and it terrifies him.
