While I loved it, I wasn't as high on Luke's fate.  I guess it is a little unclear, but after the whole ordeal of tricking Kylo, just dying anyway seemed kind of deflating.  But I imagine he will be back for real or as a ghost in part 9.

Kylo Ren had hilariously high pants.

Octogenarian style.
I wonder how much of that is driven by the Japanese hakama, the traditional pant worn by samurai.

Good question. 
I don't know, but I did notice that Rey changed her tune on Kylo Ren pretty quick once he broke out the guns.

That's what it reminded me of too

I like that for once we get to see the growth of a villain in a Star Wars movie.  We saw the creation of one in the prequels.  But every single other one (Vader, Palpatine, Thrawn, Maul, Dooku, Grevious, Snoke) we just accepted that they were already a bad ass.  I like the change up.

People also seem really upset about no backstory on Snoke.  It's like there were so many fan theories after the last one, we expected a pay off on all of them.  When has that ever been Star Wars' thing?  We still may get one in book or standalone movie form down the road, but sticking strictly to the movies how often does Star Wars do that.  We got a bit of Vader and a bit of Dooku in the movies, at least the knowledge that they were fallen Jedi.  But with Dooku, we never got a why.  With Vader we had to wait nearly 2 decades for a why.  We got literally no backstory for 20 years with Palpatine. The others, sticking to the movies, we got absolutely nothing.

I wasn't born until a year after Jedi came out.  Were people back then pissed that we knew nothing about Palpatine, or even why there was an Empire?  Truly curious.

After Jedi, people were pissed about the Ewoks.

Yeah, the negative reviews get the clicks. 

Movie reviewers go all Mark May on us when Star Wars movies come out.

I liked SW as a kid.  The last Jedi was a good story and I enjoyed the movie.... BUT, I also decided at that point Star Wars was a kids movie and no longer felt it was magical.

That guy is crazy.  The prequels were bad movies because they had all the elements of bad movies.  Boring characters, a nonsensical plot, and a flat and terrible script.  The new movies are good movies because they have all the elements of good movies, most importantly, characters that you care about and want to watch.  The story is probably the weakest element of the new movies, but they are still good movies.  The prequels are...terrible.  The test of time will see where these movies go down in lore, but the idea that these are comparable the the prequels makes my brain hurt.  As prequel Darth Vader would say, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

When someone complains about something being "boring" my first thought is not that they're right; it's that they have too short of an attention span to appreciate it.

The characters that were introduced in the Last Jedi were fairly meh, when compared to the ones introduced in the Force Awakens.
