    TLJ is my favorite because it challenges every notion one has of this franchise, yet its overall message captures the essence of what Star Wars is - you will rise and you will fall, but as long as there's hope, the light will prevail and good will overcome evil.

    It was a good movie in my eyes that succeeded in going in a new direction and surprised me by making me like canon Luke better than legends Luke. The only problem that I saw was the humor at the beginning, the canto bight sequence, and the holdo maneuver, which I made an explanation for, but it gave me my fair share of grief. 7/10

    Is there an answer for being in the middle of the fans of love it and hate it?

    I think it's a great Standalone film, but I don't think it's not a great Saga film. Do I watch it as The Last Jedi (the movie) or do I watch it as Episode 8 The Last Jedi?

    This is why I need a therapist as a Star Wars fan! LOL

    This pretty much sums it up for me. I also like the mystery/noirish feel, Rey having to figure out what happened between Luke and Ren. The fact that it has 3 threads running but no one got short shrift (okay discounting that Rey and Ren's is the best) and the characters are fleshed out. Cerebral and it makes you think. It's grown up but not in a self important way.

    It's weird because TROS is so intense. But TLJ has so much going on. Probably why I love both films so much.

    As much as TLJ is a re-hash of the OT, especially TESB. It's the reason why I like it. The film is basically re-visiting TESB.

    I don’t mean any offense to people who disagree, but since you asked for my opinion -

    I would say the main reason TLJ isn’t my least favorite movie is because I disliked TFA even more.

    TFA is an unoriginal movie with uninspired characters with a battle that I couldn’t even bring myself to care about.

    TLJ is an unoriginal movie with uninspired characters, but I cared about the battle a little bit. :D

    Middle choice. I have to say I didn't love it but I also didn't hate it either. I wish it hadn't been a Force projection and Luke had really been there. I don't really buy the whole Luke died at peace aspect. If I knew my sister was still fighting evil in the Galaxy even though she escaped this time, I won't be 'OK everything's cool. I can go'
    I didn't mind the grumpy Luke but I think if you decide to teach the force, then you fully commit rather than 3 lessons (especially when you still are blocking the Force yourself) - sorry if this sounds like a rant.
    I did like the new connection with Rey and Kylo because it took the Force communication thing to the next level (something we hadn't seen before).
    One of my issues is that if the First Order has a brand new technology to trace through hyperspace, how did Rose know anything about how it works? I think Finn and Poe should have gone on that mission. It would have strengthen their bond. They seemed to jump from two strangers to the best of friends in such a tiny amount of time.
    Still, I did enjoy the film.

    It's my least favorite personally. To me it made a mess of Rey's character arc which should have continued with what we saw in the beginning of ROS, her training etc... But more importantly, I feel that someone watching the whole saga can skip TLJ, be told that Luke is dead and not lose anything of consequence by going straight into ROS... Its just filler for me personally... Very underwhelming... Which is not something I ever want to say about SW...

    But, She had some trainning in the island. Like Luke in Dagobah. Incomplete the trainning was, like Luke in Dagobah. It rhymes.
