Top Ten Biggest Problems with Star Wars: The Last Jedi

So Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise, and suprisingly the worst too! I hated this movie so much that it made The Force Awakens look like a cinematic masterpiece! Here are the worst things about the movie! Also, SPOILERS.

The Top Ten

1 Unneeded Love Sub-Plot

To be fair, this totally sucked. Finn and Rose never built up to a romantic relationship throughout this sub-plot together, so the kiss towards the end felt completely forced (no pun intended). These two characters had absolutely no chemistry either, making their attempts to try and have a romantic kiss scene during the action-packed climax even more cringeworthy than they already were.

As for the rest of it, the thing they were assigned to do solves itself without their help. So what was the point of this?

I found this love sub-plot so disgusting and disturbing and I have a lot of reasons...

•Just one second after Rose meets Finn, she is already in love with him because of Finn's contribution in The Force Awakens. And then when Finn tries to escape, Rose zaps him because she doesn't want him to leave... because she is in love with him.

•They only met for a day and they just had one job, to find the master codebreaker in order to break the First Order's lightspeed. Along the way, they do stupid stuff like park in the middle of nowhere where they can be found by the guards, free space horses, etc. And yet, they kiss in the end of the movie.

•I know some of you may not notice this, but Rose is LITERALLY a kid (probably around the age of 16-17) and is in love with a fully grown man (Finn). That is the disturbing thing about their love sequence. I don't want to see more of this in episode 9. I hope Rose is really dead and not acting like she is dead (for those who ...more

This is way too long! And it didn't need to be this long! Do you want to know why it is two and a half haours? It's because of the sub-plot involving Finn and a new character, Rose, so there a sub-plot that is pretty much Ep. II, you know what I mean? The sub-plot is nothing but a love story! It didn't needd to be tehre, they just wanted to make it as long as possible, I mean The Phantom Menace was thirty mintes shorter! And that was a good thing, this is too long and boring!

I'm not really a fan of the whole love sub plots in movies, I don't think Rose is a terrible character though, because we actually learn a bit about her character.

2 Rey Isn't Related to Anyone

This is proof that the Star Wars fanbase is the worst movie fanbase you could ever have the displeasure of coming into contact with.

So this movie is an irredeemable atrocity because your little conspiracy theories on The Force Awakens were incorrect? Even FNaF Fans don't whine like this when their theories are wrong, and that’s saying something.

Your theories have nothing to do with the movie itself. They’re just theories, and nothing more. They don’t affect the quality of the film itself, and they don’t belong to the film creators.

Thank you for saying this, I was trying to put it into words! The reason I made the list countering this list is because I felt bad for the people who worked on this movie. They wanted to take different directions in the movie and as a result they got hated on because they don't align with what they think should happen. Though this movie does have a few problems still, it's not worse than the damn Christmas special!

This is the worst thing about this movie really! I hate this! After excitment and theories on The Force Awaken, Rian Johnson decides to crush everyones dreams! Is it hard to make Luke or Obi-Wan related to Rey, NO! It's super easy, but no, Rian Johnson crushed everyones dreams!

Who cares? If she was, you'd complain that it rehashed the twist in Empire Strikes Back.

This was actually a pretty clever twist. I like how they played with our expectations.

3 Yoda's Small Amount of Screen time is Unneeded

I never thought I would say this, but Yoda is really the worst character in the movie, he didn't even need to be tehhe! He is pointless in this movie. He is just fanservice! And he does the worst thing possible in the movie, he creates a lightning bolt that destroys a whole jedi temple, yes, A WHOLE JEDI TEMPLE even though Luke Skywalker didn't want him to! And then they try to force in a message that books aren't important, well, listen Yoda, no one cares about your stupidity and your small brain in this mess of a movie! Books are important, written by an intelligent person, how do you know Rey's powers already sood in the book, huh?

I think the problem with Yoda being here is that he creates a huge continuity error, in that he was able to shoot lightning and destroy that Jedi Temple.
So if that’s the case...what was stopping Ghost Obi Wan Kenobi from shooting bolts of lightning at Darth Vader or the enemy's artillery on Endor? Total screw up.

He came to tell Luke Skywalker something important, but he felt like fanservice.

Also, if the Jedi turn to ghosts when they die and are able to do stuff as ghosts, then what exactly was so devastating about the Jedi all dying in the third movie? They could just turn into ghosts and solve everything.

But whatever, it’s a movie series.

4 It Completely Destroyed Star Wars

This movie just destroyed everything! If you thought Star Wars: The Force Awakens was bad, at least it didn't change so much. This though, made The Force Awakens look like The Godfather. So many characters in this movie die though they are very under-devoloped, like Snoke. He is super under-devoloped and they hjs kill him. Why!?

I think this movie is setting up for future movies better than TFA because Luke gave the Few rebels a chance to escape and then he dies which means he will likely be a force ghost like Yoda then Rey gives up trying to bring Kylo to the light side. TLJ leaves us to wonder what happens next. It doesn’t ruin the franchise

This movie singlehandedly destroyed Star Wars, without a doubt! It is by far the worst of the saga! I don't even consider it real Star Wars. How any fan could say otherwise is mindboggling! This and TFA were absolute garbage. They both make TPM and AotC look stellar by comparison!

This movie killed Star Wars and destroyed everything about the saga. TFA was bad enough, but this one was the nail in the coffin.

5 They Kill Off Way Too Many Characters

Luke Skywalker, Captain Phasma, Snoke, Paige, Rose, need I say more? And most of these cahracters don't even have a backstory or are just completely unknown, which is even worse!

Yet they don't kill off the character who's actress died?

Yet you didn't have an issue with that in Infinity War

What's wrong with that?

6 Some Parts Don't Make Any Sense

There are so many plot-holes in the movie! Like when Leia is frozen in space and she suddenly is able to float back to the ship, THAT'S NOT HOW THE FORCE WORKS! What's even worse in that Carrie Fisher isn't alive anymore so Leia won't be in Episode IX. So, good job Rian Johnson, you have destroyed Star Wars! And one more thing, if Luke didn't want his lightsaber back and wanted to ignore everything, why did he even create a map in The Force Awakens anyway? It's like Rian Johnson didn't even watch The Force Awakens!

7 Leia's Fakeout Death Scene

This is probably my least favorite part of the movie, even though liked this movie. Seriosuly, they could have totally killed off Leia in that scene, and it would have been a good end to her, but no she has the force and she flies back to the ship. I don't even think that's how the force works!

Yeah, this scene is awful. Like I'm supposed to believe she can just float back to the ship.

Yeah, this scene was kind of dumb.

"That's not how the force works."

8 The Battle Scenes are Too Short

If you remember from the trailer there was going to be this duel between Finn and Captain Phasma, it looked like it could be a good duel, but the problem is that in the movie it was way to short! Why? And they kill Captain Phasma in the most unfair way in Star Wars! Finn basicilly comes up from nowhere and slams his weapon in Phaasma's face which makes Phasma fly away into the fire, this is not fair!? And the lightsaber duel at the end between Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren is even dumber! So Luke Skywalker created some ghost of himself and

What? I thought they were awesome!

Only one was short

Literally the only battle scene in this movie that was short was Finn and Phasma’s battle.

9 They Ruined Luke Skywalker

I could go on and on about the problems this film has, but the worst by far for me is what they did to Luke's character. I understand that the new trilogy is not about him, but the fact that he has rejected the Force, thinks that the Jedi "should end," and ultimately fails in his mission represents a complete destruction of Star Wars' original hero, which irreparably damages the franchise.

He refused to kill his own father, but was willing to kill his own nephew

10 It Doesn't Answer Any of the Questions from the Force Awakens

Get this in the top 10.

This is excactly why we hate this movie.

The Contenders

11 Rose Tico

I actually like Rose Tico's actress, but her hole was bad.
- She interrupted Finn's sacrifice, which would saved time for the resistance;
- Her "romance" with Finn;
- She is not useful most of time. She just hinted where the code breaker was living and some other things;
- Her deleted scene that she bravelly bites the officer's hand should have been in the movie;

I actually liked Rose a lot.

I kinda liked Rose.

Like many other characters in The Last Jedi, I think she was ruined by bad storytelling rather than the character or acting itself. It is unfortunate that the actress is being harassed.

I believe most people wouldn't have liked grumpy Luke Skywalker if it wasn't for his history in the previous films. They also doubled down on the Mary Sue Rey.

12 Too Many Meaningless Action Scenes
13 It Was Even Worse Than Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens had less problems than The Last Jedi! This makes The Force Awakens look like The Godfather and this makes J. J. Abrams look like George Lucas! I mean, at the end of The Force Awakens you were able to speculate so much things about Episode VIII that it was kinda good, this movie sums up everything!

So true...and I didn't think it could get worse lol.

That is an opinion.

14 Admiral Holdo

Surprised she's not in the list yet. Holdo is a forced representation of Feminism in the film, if Rey wasn't enough. And not only that, her character isn't even that good.

15 Kylo Ren is the Only Good Character

He is seriously the only thing I liked about this movie, he is literally te only new charcter in the sequel trilogy to be good and to actually have devolopment and motivations, we know why he is evil and why he does what he does.

In your opinion.

Ben Swolo is a good meme though

Eh, I think he’s an awful character.

16 Luke Skywalker Died

So... Luke died a virgin. Life must have sucked for him :/...

Okay, jokes aside, I think his death wasn't executed well enough, which also adds up to the fact that Luke doesn't really feel like Luke for the most part, which is quite disappointing.

I actually loved the scene where he becomes one with the force

That just means he will be a force ghost

I'm blaming the director

17 Not Everyone Dies

You want everyone to die?

How is that a criticism?

18 No Mourning for Han

There is a deleted scene in which Luke mourns Han. It's brief but powerful. Yet, was shaved off while 45 minutes of Canto Bight were not.

19 Even Star Wars Fans Hate It

People want to remove this movie from existence and remake it, and I understand why, this is a horrible movie, end of that!

So? Just because other people hate it doesn't mean you have to.

This list is a perfect example of the Star Wars fanbase

Um, you know there are people who hate Star Wars 8 but hate every other Star Wars movie too, right?

20 It's Extremely Boring
21 It Didn't Make Any Sense that Luke Died and Rey Was the Last Jedi

It didn't make sense

22 We Never Got a Single Information About Snoke

Unbelievable! They decided to dumped the character.

23 Captain Phasma Had No Purpose in the Plot Aside from Fighting Finn
24 Unoriginal
25 It's a Print Money Movie

Every Movie is to make money.

Yeah, but most movies we're mad in the soul intent to entertain and please people and fans. This movie's only purpose was making money.
