6 Things I Want From Star Wars Episode IX

Star War: The Last Jedi is now in our rearview mirror and the Han Solo stand alone film is on its way in only a few short months. This makes it the perfect time to speculate about what I want to see in the next main chapter of the Star Wars saga! How will the new trilogy come to an end? What about Snoke?!

No clue on what the name could possibly even be

I liked The Last Jedi well enough, and I’ve come to like it even more once I started to understand parts of it better. I still like all the new characters and I look forward to whatever else might happen. As some people have pointed out, The Last Jedi didn’t really leave any major cliffhangers that need to be resolved. Both sides of the war are pretty much where they were when the movie started and all characters are accounted for. So story wise, I’m not sure what’s going to happen.

But you’re gosh darn right I have some ideas! Join me after the jump for six things I want to see in Star Wars: Episode IX! And feel free to share your own hopes, dreams and fears in the comments.

Some Genius Made an Amazing Star Wars Thing!

That genius would be animator John Stratman, and the thing would be this badass 16-bit animation of the finale of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. So if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you might want to skip this video. But it is pretty awesome.

And I like celebrating awesome things. The video is hosted by Mr. Sunday Movies.

6 Thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Like the coming of the tide and the dawning of the sun, another Star Wars movie is upon us! Unlike last year’s Rogue One spin-off, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is part of the main franchise! It’s Episode VIII! That’s pretty cool, right? That means this movie is super important and cool!

Movie Rating: 7/10 – Good.

I liked The Last Jedi, but I wasn’t blown away. I don’t consider it the best Star Wars movie since Empire Strikes Back. I think The Last Jedi was a fun and resounding adventure film, with plenty of cool Star Wars stuff, but nothing really beyond that. It’s the sort of movie you super enjoy while watching, but once you start thinking about it, there was a lot wrong with the movie. I know a lot of these complaints have been making the rounds all over the Internet, but now you can read my take on them!

So join me after the jump for my full review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as well as plenty of long-winded rants about the stuff that bugged me! And expect FULL SPOILERS for The Last Jedi.

Honestly? I like the Ewoks

I will defend Ewoks until my final breath. In fact, I already did it once two years ago when The Force Awakens came out. But hey, here’s the Honest Trailer about Return of the Jedi!

I went and saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi last night and I liked it well enough. I liked it to the degree that I like all modern Star Wars movies. It’s fun and energetic, with a lot to love. But…I have complaints, and nitpicks, and stuff that just knocks the movie down a couple notches for me. I’ll share all of those next Wednesday in my List of Six review! So stay tuned.

I Don’t Care for Porgs

I don’t care for Porgs. I don’t get the hype. I mean, to some extent, I can understand the hype. Porgs are obviously super cute. But surely we all realize that they were manufactured that way, right? Like, Star Wars didn’t need a super cute race of tiny aliens for The Last Jedi.

Disney manufactured a super cute, hugely marketable nonsense creature for the sole purpose of suckering people into liking them unconditionally.

Porgs Suck 01

They’re like Furbies. No, they’re worse than Furbies. They’re Funzos.

Remember Funzos? Has The Simpsons taught us nothing?

If you’re into these Porg things, by all means, more power to you. I hope they have a meaningful contribution to The Last Jedi. But just on their own, as clearly manufactured nothings that serve no purpose and are probably just Minions rip-offs, I can’t believe how popular they seem.

And this is coming from a guy who likes the Ewoks.
