That's basically a fact at this point. And if there was ever going to be a place in this entire trilogy to give him this emotional moment of a goodbye, this was probably going to be the most emotionally potent place to do it. It opened more possibilities as opposed to fewer. She's so badass, I wish it was her story. We got into the conversations, and we got into the work, and we talked, and we argued, and we discussed, and that process ended up being very good for the character and also for our working relationship.
Haven't seen the movie yet but need details now? And if there was ever going to be a place in this entire trilogy to give him this emotional moment of a goodbye, this was probably going to be the most emotionally potent place to do it. But the scene upset me because I knew we wouldn't get to see her again. The only good explanation for that would be if he endured something horrifying and traumatic - like his absolute failure of Ben Solo. And I wanted to leave it in a place where you felt you were excited for the potential of what could come next, and you're invested maybe a little more deeply in these characters and where they end up. I did want to pick it up where the last one left off. Which also btw has a higher user rating score than this! Maybe there will be one eventually at some point. It was worth all the hype it deserves which makes it another one of the best of this year and the only movie with such a score automatically makes this one of the best films of this year in my opinion.
I think that would be fantastic. Johnson: Well, I wanted it to be a full meal. There are lots of laugh-out-loud moments, like Rey telling Luke Skywalker he has time to train her because his days are pretty boring. Guerrasio: It sounds like you will direct the first movie of this trilogy and then go on and produce the other two. Though Boyega and Isaac don't necessarily have meaty character arcs like Ridley's Rey, they continue to bring heart and humor to the story.
More than a year after it hit theaters, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is being analyzed and discussed by fans across the internet and embracing its many achievements. Further, the other two members of the new Star Wars trio, Finn and Poe, are each afforded their moments to shine. Guerrasio: Like most movies, this one was crafted in post, you guys shot a lot. And I also know the same way the original movies were personal for Lucas. Thankfully, a few instances of graceless dialogue don't blunt the force of the movie's biggest hits.
Also, I didn't love what happened to Luke Skywalker, but I won't spoil it here. So that leads you down a certain path. That is what I feel is the weakest part of this film. And you realize the dramatic potential of that, and it just makes a lot of sense from the story point of view. But when he hears that the former Jedi apprentice Ferus Olin is alive and a wanted fugitive on the planet Bellassa, he feels compelled to help save him. We already had quite a full plate to deal with in terms of all the other characters. When I talk about the negative stuff, that's not the full picture of the fans at all.
What do you think of Oz's comments? We already had quite a full plate to deal with in terms of all the other characters. And let me just add that 80-90% of the reaction I've gotten from Twitter has been really lovely. The disparate forces of the Resistance and the First Order or whichever name the sides of good and evil are going by have never been felt quite as much as in The Last Jedi, and the desperation of the rebels is an ongoing thread throughout the entire film. And all in ravishingly visual, hilariously funny, fist-pumpingly exciting style. Luke's the hero coming back into this story, and the fact that this character and this movie could not be that — this character in this movie was by necessity what he had to be, and also in relation to Rey, that brought its own necessity.
Often things happened too quickly to make moments feel like they mattered. Johnson: What's exciting to me right now is the open blue sky of it and the potential of it. Let's face it, the casino subplot felt like a useless side mission ripped from the prequels, and it derailed whatever urgency was being built up by the universe's slowest chase sequence. Guerrasio: In many ways, this is Luke's coda. Daisy Ridley was my standout in terms of actors. Still, The Last Jedi is tightly woven, with a breakneck pacing that helps to propel viewers forward. But it just wasn't the story we were telling.
Johnson has not only met what were undeniably high expectations with his installment in one of the biggest movie franchises in history, he's exceeded them. I know that he must think he's doing the right thing by taking himself out of the equation, and that means he thinks the best thing for the galaxy is that he's not a part of this and, by extension, that the Jedi are not a part of this. We got into the conversations, and we got into the work, and we talked, and we argued, and we discussed, and that process ended up being very good for the character and also for our working relationship. So it's not what Mark had in his head initially, and that's why he's spoken very openly about his being caught off guard by the script and where the character ends up. Not a lot of footage of Captain Phasma Gwendoline Christie was shot, so don't expect much of the character in Blu-ray deleted scenes. With your movie, the knock is it's nothing like the original trilogy. Star Wars fans, with opinions? Going forward, that's something I would absolutely love to see.
I guess the alt-right boogeymen story will have to do. With your movie, the knock is it's nothing like the original trilogy. Disney Everyone has something to do in this movie, and characters actually learn something about themselves, like what they're willing to do to win the war. If Force Ghost Yoda can summon lightning, how come he doesn't float around zapping villains. But it's because they care about these things, and it hurts when you're expecting something specific and you don't get it from something that you love. But that's the old friction, isn't it? People wanted to see something new that pushed boundaries and broke new ground.
