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

I couldn't see it in theaters so I didn't read any conversation about this movie in order to avoid spoilers. Finally saw it this afternoon and I'm surprised by how much I liked it, it was almost as good as The Force Awakens, which for me is a perfect Star Wars film. I have no idea what people disliked about The Rise of Skywalker. 4.5 out of 5 stars for me, and I'm so happy they could give Carrie Fisher a proper send-off, she didn't deserve to have The Last Jedi as her last appearance as Princess Leia.

They were desperate to make the release date. They disposed of JJ’s ideas for 8/9 back when RJ was making 8 so obviously they didn’t think they were the highest of quality.  With CT getting fired and Iger refusing to move the 2019 release date, I guess they just didn’t care about the quality and desperately asked JJ to come back with the ideas they already threw in the trash lol. 
 

I think I have finally settled in at ranking TROS 10/11 in my overall Saga rankings after 7 viewings.  I only have Rogue One ranked below it because it is one of the most boring movies I’ve ever seen multiple times.  TROS does irreparable damage to the saga, but at least it’s not boring to watch.

Yep I knew something was off straight from the opening crawl.  Then the first 20 min of the film is a cluster montage and nothing is making any sense whatsoever lol.  By the end I was just laughing/crying in disappointment.  Agree though, all the actors did the best they could with the crap they were given.  In the bonus features on the digital release, JJ and Terrio were making major adjustments on set.  The Dagger wasn’t even in the script, they just added it as another Mcguffin on the day they shot lol!

this is JJ's first film without a commentary track, seems like no one is happy with the film

Just saw it as well, rarely been so disoriented watching a movie, space/time made so little sense, things did seem all patched over each other with voice over made in post-production, the exposition was absolutely terrible.

 

One of the worst big budget movie I have seen.

Speaking purely from a financial point of view, considering current events, it was probably a good call to rush this movie out for a 2019 release.

Maybe.  It might have done permanent damage to the SW brand long term though.

I'm still trying to decide whether the script or editing was worse. Both were hilairously bad but gotta choose the winner. As the resident movie expert, what say you?

It is hard to distinguish how much of the editing issue are coming from the script and vice versa I imagine, but it look like something that was shoot without a coherent script (or at least what they decided to go with after the first principal photography changed a lot from it)

 

Will go for the script, but even the direction was terrible for the most part, even the scene when the resistance prop themselve for battle or celebrated the result were not good, the score an usual strength of the franchise obviously didn't seem to be able to save moments.

 

I doubt that things like: Were is Cheewy ? Said when working on a ship seemingly in the middle of a desert, followed by him arrested by an big army...... Cannot have been planned and written/storyboarded like that 6 month before the shoot started.

Agreed, it stunk up the joint on all 3 levels - script, direction, editing.

glad so many movie experts on here hate the movie, it was pretty enjoyable movie for most people I know who saw it when it came out.

Sorry to resurrect this dead thread. I just wanted to point out that SW: ROS finished up at number 8 worldwide for 2019, behind the Joker and Toy Story 4. This is a good thing. That is all.
