Talking about the leaks, not matter how vague, can lead to a thread ban if not spoiler tagged.

So yeah it doesn't really make sense that the First Order would reign days after destroying Hosnian Prime. 

This is a very terrible argument, I heard it from some welsh youtuber quite a bit ago and thought he was joking but no seriously, it wasn't satire... do these people not understand English? Reign has a multitude of meanings in varied amounts of context, Reign also Implies Predominant which means either present as the strongest element or exerting power or control, these are your two basic definitions of Reign. The context of the film tells us it's the former because TFO is the only present superpower in the galaxy.

 

So no The First Order "Reigns" does make sense.

You are going to be there opening weekend. Just like every single person who still complains about TLJ two years later.

 

No one, and I mean *no one* believes people like you are going to actually boycott the finale of the Star Wars saga. The return of Ian McDiarmid as Palpatine. The return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando. One final time seeing Mark Hamill as Luke, Carrie Fisher as Leia, & Anthony Daniels as Threepio. And potentially many others kept under wraps (See Warwick Davies as Wicket in the behind the scenes video for example).

 

No fan is boycotting this movie. None. Zip. Zero. No matter how much they pretend they are online.

im really excited for people like you to be wrong

But, to get a huge number, TROS will need more than the super fans.  Solo gave us the absolute minimum of a Star Wars movie - pretty much only the base showed up.  So, the base is huge.  But, it's not $600M+ DOM huge.  So, getting others to care who are not super fans is the trick to getting this to go sky high.

 

It's the purpose of the spots...to get random folks to care...(and to try not to piss off the borderline still-pissed base members at the same time:)...

I never said I will boycott, I'm not a hater if that's what you mean. I wanted to say I need a confirmation from someone I trust if it's worth my time and money. I would love to hear from people: "I don't care about Ep. 7 or 8 but this was awesome".

 

Also I'm not complaining about TLJ, just expressed my (not positive) opinion on the movie.

If someone who loved TLJ says this movie is great, would you trust?

The issue is not people who disliked TLJ not coming to watch this movie.

 

Its not like Endgame where the fanbase is united and super buzzed.

 

They may not see the film 2,3,4 times or really convince their friends and family to come along and watch this movie as much.

So, you want my opinion on Dec 26, when I take my super fan boys (I gave 7 a C+ and 8 a C-, so I think I fall in your category:)...FWIW, I gave Rogue One a B- and Solo a B, so I guess I've been liking the offshoots more:)...

I have pretty much the same grades for 7 and 8, liked Rogue One a little bit more than Solo (both solid B, RO maybe even B+).

Having deep vendetta against a franchise you’re a fan of and boycotting it because Disney let Rian Johnson make his masterpiece sounds pretty dumb to me!
