Curious about people’s opinions on the movie The Last Jedi...love it? Hate it? Would like to hear your thoughts.

VERY satisfied with the plot, feel, flow, and of course the visuals. Understand that though this is not directed by Mr. Lucas, a great deal of his imagination still carries over to the continuing story.

As a serious Star Wars fan since I can remember in the early '80s, I definitely approve.

I want to talk a lot about this flick, but you need to see it firsthand for yourself.

Just a few thoughts:

Hi, Scott et al. I only saw the 1st couple of the shuffled series, and enjoyed them. A friend invited me to this one; I passed because hadn't seen others and was only mildly interested. I'm currently watching the old (1995/96-ish) Outer Limits TV episodes. Forgot how political (anti-government, anti-military) those were. I think Star Wars initiated the ~too busy with latest special effects~ binge. But glad others are enjoying the entertainment! Tom

I enjoyed it but it did not go the way I expected. My teenage son’s loved it. I understand some people have mixed feelings about this chapter (lovers and haters).

I can see both sides of the argument. It is interesting to hear what others think.

It was a good movie, but not a good Star Wars movie.

At least follow up and continue the nonsense started in Force Awakens in a logical manner.

I have hope the Ron Howard will do a good job with Solo movie. The trailer looks except for Woody Harrelson as his same character from Hunger Games.
