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.
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.
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 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.
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.
One of my favorite pop culture Youtube channels is Mr. Sunday Movies. It’s pretty funny and he’s a funny guy. And I need some new video content to share on my blog. So here’s Mr. Sunday Movies talking about lightsabers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
He’s a funny guy with a great channel and you should totally subscribe!
Also, I have little interest in ancient lightsabers showing up in the new movie. I want Rey to build her own lightsaber and I want it to be yellow!
