Top Ten Best Things About Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Ok, so I've been around the internet lately, and I've seen this new Star Wars movie get astronomical amounts of backlash everywhere! Yes, it is far from a perfect movie and some parts suck, but I think it still does things right. Feel free to add your own opinions.
The Top Ten
1 Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas. He is portrayed by Mark Hamill.

Many may disagree with me, but I like what they did with Luke's character in this movie. The reasons given for him hiding away from the galaxy were pretty clear to me, and I can understand how he feels. Also his scene where he becomes one with the force really gave me the chills the first time watching.

The most legendary character in Star Wars of all time. It was obvious that he would make it in the top 3. I would say that in the entire Star Wars series, he was the most important character in Star Wars history.

2 Kylo Ren Kyle Ren, also known as Ben Solo, is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. Ren first appeared in 2015's Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia, was... read more

Absolutely the best thing in the movie by far. I think that Ben's character is so strategically rebuilt in this film that he's the only likable character I saw in the movie. He felt as though that angst that was present in TFA has vanished and is now replaced with genuine intentions and dignity, and honestly, I love it.

Kylo Ren is the only good character in the sequel trilogy. His personality and actions make sense and make him stand out from the other villains.

Didn't care about Kylo after watching TFA. Now he is my third favourite character in the universe thanks to Rian's awesome writing and Driver's impeccable performance. Well done.

3 The Character Development that Happens Throughout the Movie

One thing I loved about this movie is that we learn a lot more about characters such as Kylo Ren or Rey. We learn a little bit about their backgrounds, and their motivations. I think that's great!

In my opinion Kylo had to be the character with the most development. In TFA he was literally a Darth Vader rip-off but here he has character

Force Awakens wasn't really a great one, but I think this one was pretty good.

4 Rey is No Longer a Mary Sue

Another thing I really liked about this movie is that we learn that Rey does have weaknesses and is no longer a Mary Sue, which is great because that basically fixed a problem I had with TFA.

At TFA, I felt she was kinda overpowered. But then this movie came and we got to see that she was a flawed character and made relatable mistakes. She's an amazing character

I can see all of those people complaining about her being a marry sue pouting right now.

5 The Relationship Between Rey and Kylo

I don't ship them at all, but I love seeing them interact with each other.

The scenes with Rey and Kyle were the only good ones.

Well, the thing is that I'm not sure if they were in a relationship before, because I haven't seen the other Star Wars movies

6 The Fight Scenes

The battle scenes in Star Wars movies are badass, and this movie is no exception (which is why I put it lower). The fight scenes in this movie were all entertaining!

Finn vs. Captain Phasma was pretty cool, and the ending was quite satisfying. Many other good fights as well, but this one may be my favorite.

One of my favorite parts! Definitely kept me entertained especially during the Kylo Ren and Rey one.

7 The Kylo Ren Plot Twist

One thing I liked about this movie is all the plot twists that happened. I wish we could have learned more about Snoke, but I can get along with the twist of Kylo Ren being the new supreme leader.

Eh, what? I thought Kylo betraying Snoke was way too obvious. The second he removed the mask in TFA I knew he was gonna go back to the light side

8 The Settings

They have more personality than in the Force Awakens, but overall it's still mediocre to what we had in the Prequels and originals.

I must admit, that despite all the things I didn't like in this movie, the settings and planets were very interesting to see.

Most of the settings in this movie still look imaginative or neat looking.

9 Yoda Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back. He is portrayed by Frank Oz.
10 The Musical Score

I put this low because this is an expectation for Star Wars movies. John Williams never disappoints us with his astounding work!

The Contenders
11 The CGI

I liked the CGI in this movie, it certainly looks better than the prequel trilogy CGI (which isn't saying much since the prequels came out a while ago).

12 We Learn More About the Force

I liked that Luke Skywalker basically explained how the force works in a simple manner to Rey, even if it sounds a bit stupid.

If you watched the prequels, you would have already known how it works.

13 Porgs

People literally complain about these so much. I'm literally a die hard Star Wars fan and I love the Porgs. They weren't in the movie too much, they're cute, and they add to the variety of species in the world. I love the Porgs. I don't know why people act like they destroyed Star Wars, because they didn't even destroy this movie. I am happy they were added in!

14 A Ship Destroys Itself by Crashing Into Another Ship Destroying the Other Ship

A lot of people hated this just because it wasn't Admiral Ackbar. Who even cares? It's not gonna play out how you want it sorry boo.

The special effects in this scene were inspired, it was short to the point and very memorable.

I thought the theater sound malfunctioned at this part. It was awesome too.

15 Casino Scene
16 Leia in Space
17 It's Less Black and White Than Previous Star Wars Movies
18 Shirtless Kylo Ren

It's January and I still find this somewhat dank. Maybe because January memes are terrible!

19 It's Not a Rehash of the Same Story

We all know that the prequals followed a pattern, and let's admit it, we all thought the pattern would continue. But smoke died, kylo ren somehow became an even more devise character.

The thing I don't get is that people claimed TFA was too familiar to A New Hope but now when they try to do it differently people also get angry.

20 Rose Tico

A lot of people misinterpret her saving Finn. His ship was falling apart and there was almost nothing left of hit and it was just beginning to melt (it would have been disintegrated in the cannon and would have done nothing). She and Poe knew Finn would just be wasting his life for no outcome, and that's part of the reason she stopped him. That's why she says she saved him.

Nah. It felt as though she was thrown in there just to make an Asian character. If she wasn't in the movie, I doubt it would've made any significant difference whatsoever.

21 It Keeps You on the Edge of Your Seat

Man was this movie intense. There were so many times that they could have ended the rebellion but they didn't

22 More Racial Diversity
23 The Sequel Trilogy is Almost Complete

I hope this is true but am kinda pessimistic about it.

24 R2-D2 R2-D2 or Artoo-Detoo is a fictional robot character in the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas, who appears in the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the sequel trilogy.
