Spoilers

So here are my issues with episode 8, in random order, spoilers included


Luke is portrayed in a completely absurd way. Luke “ I'll save my father or die trying” Skywalker tried to kill a sleeping child? His sister's son? Seriously? Well, Mark Hammil himself already commented on this, so I guess I don't have to go into details any more.


The resistance is blown into oblivion because they are running out of fuel? Wow, that is really epic. And of course the first order ships, which don't lack fuel and could go to lightspeed at any time had absolutely no chance to flank the resistance ships, or overtake them, all they could do is follow them at a constant distance and wait for their chance when the fuel is gone…


Supreme Leader Snoke is so supreme that he can be killed with a really cheap trick. But at least like this nobody had to think of a proper background story for that character, why bother when he is dead

The big answer to Reys background is awesome as well… in half a sentence we get to know that her parents were nobodies who sold her off… awesome storytelling indeed


The whole relation between her and Kylo is horrible with it's “highlight” being the scene when he appears before her shirtless. Shirtless??? Sorry, that is down to Twilight level, does he also sparkle in sunlight? If they want to use other movies like this for the next episode they could try 50 shades of grey, the Force might be very useful…


Leia dies and floats through space only to wake up and do the superman, flying back to the nearest ship? One of the worst scenes in movie history… And somebody correct me if I am wrong, but didn't they say they would not include her in episode 9 out of respect? No old footage and no cgi? So why resurrect her like this, why not give a proper and worthy death to the character? Why for example didn't she do the Kamikaze thing to save the others.


Why create a unique Stormtrooper (the only one with a chrome armour and a name) when that character doesn't have ANY significance for the movie? She is on screen for about 5 minutes and then dies, great story telling indeed. The only reason she was created was to sell toys.


General whatever ( can't remember his name) is portrayed as a complete idiot. This is the highest ranking guy under Snoke? Tarkin is still puking in his grave I guess. The whole competition with Kylo… yeah, I get it, both want to be in power, but the acting is just bad.


The whole story around Finn and Rose is completely useless and doesn't do anything for the main story. It is not only boring, it is absurd. While every second counts for the resistance (remember they are chased by the First Order and everyone is about to die) those two have all the time in the world to save some animals, free some kids from slavery and discuss about weapon deals. Shouldn't they try to get back to their ships as quickly as they possibly can?


I know that Star Wars was never famous for the best acting in movie history, and yes, also the classic 3 movies have flaws, but the level of bad acting, giant plot holes and absurd decisions concerning story and characters is just on a whole different level now.

I am new in klwp and am experimenting a lot with it in the moment, great fun. Right now there is one thing that I couldn't figure out so far: when using a widget to control an audio player (in my case google play music), is it possible to lock this widget to this one app exclusively? Right now it displays whatever was playing last, whether it was play music, YouTube, audible or whatever else.

"It was a stark reminder of how differently our press treats vulnerable accusers and powerful men who stand accused." Just like with Bill Cosby, Roman Polansky and Brian Singer, to cite only three of dozends, maybe hundreds or even thousands of rich and powerful men.
