On the 28th I went to the movies with my dad and brother. We watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi after finally having caught up with the other movies in the series. Before 2017 I’d never watched a Star Wars film in my life which, according to my best friend, was like saying you’d never learned how to ride a bike (okay so maybe a bit exaggerated but she’s truly for real about Star Wars). So together with my dad and brother I decided it was probably time we found out what the hype was all about:P
And tbh guys I’m not and will probably never be a huge Star Wars fan. It’s not like the movies are bad or anything, they’re just a tad confusing. What? don’t try to tell me that the whole “you have to watch them in this order”- thing isn’t confusing as shit ‘cuz I won’t buy it. So yeah, a bit confusing and I feel like, especially the older ones, were a bit boring at times as well. Fight scenes in starfighters that feel like they last 1 1/5 hour is apparently all you need to put me to sleep 😛
I can’t say I don’t like the movies either though, that would be a lie. When you begin making your way through the films and get more into it you’ll definitely enjoy it more. At least I did. I understood the characters, the plot and such in the newest films way better than in the first ones. The Last Jedi I was even really pumped about! And damn was it good. It really was. I loved all the twists and turns in the plot, the small humoristic aspects of it and all the fight scenes were well spaced out too. I’ve read that other hardcore fans were fairly disappointed with it but personally I thought it was really good.
Of course I know they’re not done yet and that there will be more movies coming, but somehow I hope they won’t try to milk it for too long. I mean with many of the old characters out of the picture it just won’t be the same experience for many people. I hope they choose to quit while they’re ahead. But let’s face it, they probably won’t stop if they can keep making money on it… That’s just how it is.
Have any of you watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi or any other Star Wars movie? If so what did you think and which one is your favorite?
Do let me know 😀
This will also be the last post of the year so I hope you enjoyed reading along in 2017 and I hope to see you all again next year as well!
Happy New Year everyone! Have a blast, stay safe and enjoy this meme xx
