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 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.

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. - Phillip873

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.

He will be missed. The series would never be the same without him - Neonco31

Mark Hamil Was Fantastic In This Movie - JPK

2 Kylo Ren Kylo Ren Kyle Ren is a fictional Sith lord, who is strong with the Force . Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. His debut was in 2015's Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens

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. - MasonOcker

This movie was not only the best but it did showed us the other side of Kylo Ren that we need to witness.

Like I mentioned already, I like the direction they took with Kylo Ren - Phillip873

Best character in the new trilogy.

3 The Character Development that Happens Throughout the Movie

I bet those oversensitive Conservatives, are cringing at this list as soon as they see it! - RogerWatersfan1999

Yeah this is why I don't like to talk politics (I'm immoderate by the way so I do have some conservative views and some liberal views). It just seems to make everyone angry. - Phillip873

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! - Phillip873

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

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 - Randomator

4 Rey is No Longer a Mary Sue

I can see all of those people complaining about her being a marry sue pouting right now. - RogerWatersfan1999

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 - MLPFan

Rey kind of reminds me of Emma Watson a little bit - MangoFruitJuice

Rey goes head to head with kylo and luke. Give me a break

5 The Relationship Between Rey and Kylo

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 - MangoFruitJuice

This had to be the most interesting thing about this movie - Randomator

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

6 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. - Phillip873

I do wish Snoke was more developed I liked the plot twist - Randomator

Not surprised Kylo betrayed Snoke - Neonco31

7 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! - Phillip873

NO! They where either too short, unfair or dumb. I didn't even care for Luke or Finn. - darthvadern

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

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. - Metarock

8 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. - Phillip873

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

9 The Settings

Most of the settings in this movie still look imaginative or neat looking. - Phillip873

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

10 It's Not a Rehash of the Same Story

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. - Phillip873

People are usually like that online, sometimes It's confusing what do the audience would want - MLPFan

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.

yes it is - judo8alex

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). - Phillip873

12 Porgs

Eh they're a bit creepy - Phillip873

They literally had no reason to be there other than to sell toys. - MegaSoulhero


If you think jar jar binks is the worst Star Wars character, well your in for a suprise. Porgs are the worst Star Wars characters in my opinion. They are very annoying! Like when chewy growls, the porgs quakles, & it sounds awful! And MegaSoulHero is right, they have no purpose, & there just made to sell toys.

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

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

Best scene in the movie

That scene was fantastic - Phillip873

That scene was awesome - Gametheorysucks

14 Leia in Space

That scene made no sense - Gametheorysucks

Cheesiest thing I've ever seen in my life.

If I'm going to be honest with you guys, I couldn't control my laughter in the theatre when this happened, sure it was cool she survived but it looks pretty silly lmao

15 The Sequel Trilogy is Almost Complete
16 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! - Phillip873

It's John Williams! Of course it'll be amazing! - naFrovivuS

17 It's Less Black and White than Previous Star Wars Movies
18 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 - Randomator

19 No Jar Jar

To be more specific, if Jar-Jar links REALLY does deserve to be here, then he does not deserve to be a damsel-in-distress and should actually be very developed.

Yay! No Jar Jar Binks! - MangoFruitJuice

This proves Jar Jar Binks hatebase is the most annoying Star Wars hatebase. Just because Jar Jar wasn't in it it doesn't make it good. Take Star Wars: Episode III, Jar Jar was in that movie but people like it. I guess this movie would be hated if there was a poster of Jar Jar Binks in the movie. That's how I see the hatebase. - darthvadern

I did not add this and while I think Jar Jar is incredibly annoying, this still isn't a reason I found things to like in this movie. - Phillip873

20 Yoda 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.

Welcome return - PanteraForever

Back, he is? - Pokemonfan10

His scene was the dumbest scene in the movie, he has gone frmo a wise old man to a fanservice dumb creature. Burning a bunch of Jedi books isn't cool! - darthvadern
