“It just felt like every time Luke came in and entered the movie, he just took it over,” Arndt continued. “Suddenly you didn’t care about your main character anymore because, ‘Oh f–k, Luke Skywalker’s here. I want to see what he’s going to do.’”

Solution! You should have made Luke the main character.

Or, you know, actually written new characters that aren't complete shit. Rey is a hideous, fish faced monster and the actress can only project two expressions, blank face and fish face.

.. or added new characters with actual soul. See Blade Runner 2049. I actually cared more for the main character than Ford because he had well character and Ford was just there for the sentimentality.

Yep, K, Luv, Joi and even the female Commander were all interesting in their own right. The revolutionaries not so much, except the guy at the beginniong. Jared Leto was too Jared Leto. More a "performance" than a character. But the others were enough to not need Deckard to carry the story.

Or used the Zahn books and made decent movies. I don't mind the de-feminized edit, though.

This is not really a revelation. It was pretty clear even before... blasted what was that new one called? I blocked it out of my mind... The Last Jedi was released that every original character would only ever upstage the new characters. Han was still somehow a bigger and better character than all the new characters even though he was completely gutted of his persona as was admiral Leia.

Disney fagots need to bleed money for what they did. No sense in going to any more movies until somebody fucking gets it right and stops pushing the jew narratives on us.

That's because the three new characters are fucking awful. Rey is a Mary Sue, the nigger is a janitor with access to all the secrets of the First Order and a complete coward that is constantly trying to run away, and the spic kike's only character trait is that he's a snowflake pilot.

They're not interesting, or charming, or relatable, so no one actively cares about them.

Kylo is the only character with any depth.

"This is not really a revelation"

If you read Jeffro's stuff than yeah. You know perfectly well that Big Hollywood is seemingly incapable of writing a hero. But outside of him writing about it from time to time i really don't see where this isn't a revelation. How come no one talks about it if this so very known? Is it kept on the hush hush low down? If so why?

Hollywood is incapable of writing a hero because they haven’t seen one since the late ‘50’s.

Hollywood is seemingly incapable of writing a hero.

Because they're in the business of subversion and demoralization. Heroes are kind of the antithesis to that goal.

Probably why everyone was so surprised by Cap being the mid-phase break out lead of the Marvel ECU.
Likely why they then turned him into an overt Hydra Nazi in the comics, in case children were inspired by his movie persona and sought out further positive role model material.

Well if you know the lore and know that anakin was conceived by the force(no religious subtext there) and he and Luke were some of the most powerful force users to ever exist and yet still had to be trained and then make a movie where this nobody suddenly for no reason can use the force and win light saber fuels without any training what so ever you understand why the film sucked. It wasn’t a starwars movie it completely ignored how starwars works the rules of the universe and failed to give any explanation, I’m not even a big starwars fan and I knew this. I can’t imagine how pissed the actual fans were if those exist anymore.

I've told this story on here before. I went with 3 buddies to see The Last Jedi, all of us lifetime star Wars fans. After the movie we went to a bar to drink or sorrows away. We all hated it, we accepted TFA because we expected answer and that the story would actually move forward.

One buddy I went with was almost as much of a fan as I was. I read most of the old EU, he had read some. He now group texts us SEVERAL times a day with links to articles and videos about how Star Wars is dying or some other negative info. I've just moved on, Star Wars died with Luke. As far as I'm concerned TLJ not only killed the sequel trilogy but all of Star Wars.

Like I told my buddy when he was drinking his despair that night, "Let go of the past, kill it if you have to."

That's what fans think.

I didn't mind the TFA myself. I thought it was a terribly uncreative movie, but it was still acceptable. TLJ was utter crap. Even if you threw away all of your expectations and attachment to the Star Wars franchise, it was still an awful film.

We still have IV, V, and VI, and I take comfort in that.

Because he gave the fans a slight glimmer of hope the franchise wasn't dead... There's still something alive in there... Like those fools that can't admit to themselves the zombie is already dead and there's no longer something to save?

Or is it just because Luke is a cis white male on the "good guy" side? Darth Soyboy is at least the "bad guy" and clearly identifies as a nigger faggot.
