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

The best we had seen from him - iliekpiez

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. Ren's real identity is Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. He was trained more.

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

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

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

Showed so much struggle, very interesting character - iliekpiez

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

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

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

In not a big fan of the new Star Wars movies, but I do like the character development - Gangem

4 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

Oh yes, some of the best scenes in the film - iliekpiez

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

5 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

Yes-she was like a normal human - iliekpiez

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

I really enjoyed that sequence other than Snoke dying - iliekpiez

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

I LOVE THE SCENE WITH PHASMA AND FINN. looks spectular - iliekpiez

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.

Yes, but then again happens in the abomination prequels - iliekpiez

9 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.

Fans said they wanted a new story, Rian gave us it - iliekpiez

yes it is - judo8alex

10 The Settings

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

Beautiful settings - iliekpiez

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

The Contenders

11 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.

There are videos about it and people wonder why the rebels didn't do this to the death star

I thought the theater sound malfunctioned at this part. It was awesome too. - PackFan2005

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. - children

12 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

13 Porgs

Eh they're a bit creepy - Phillip873

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


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! - children

14 The Sequel Trilogy is Almost Complete
15 Leia in Space

I wonder why this is higher up, I found this one of the worst parts of the movie! - Phillip873

Cheesiest thing I've ever seen in my life.

That scene made no sense

I thought it was for the great or good that they killed off Leia, because Carrie Fisher is dead. But then, she magically survives and floats back to the ship. I question Disney’s intention with that scene. - PackFan2005

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!

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.

Why would he be in it? He's very likely dead by this point. - PlanetDeadwing

Yay! No Jar Jar Binks! - MangoFruitJuice

No, I, The Ultimate Daredevil decided to add this to the list, but Jar Jar Binks COULD actually be developed and powerful character. Jambareeqi sent a warning to relieve people in his video about his thoughts on the godawful Star Wars: The Clone Wars that is that Jar Jar Binks is not in this game.

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

21 Shirtless Kylo Ren

It's January and I still find this somewhat dank. Maybe because January memes are terrible! - Phillip873

O so very sexy, big papa...


22 Rose Tico

I actually liked Rose, she died to protect Finn and I think that was very brave. But compared to everyone else, she wasn't that impressive - MLPFan

I really liked her, one of the best parts of the film for me.

She was mediocre at best

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. - children

23 More Racial Diversity

SJW alert!

24 The Credit Rolls


25 Casino Scene

This scene was very unnecessary. Plus, it didn’t even look like something that belongs in Star Wars. There was nothing sci-fi about it. It just looked like a regular Earth casino. - MegaSoulhero

26 Non Stop Action

Too much action. Mindless action. That was my least favorite part of the movie. - Y2K

27 R2-D2 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.
28 AT-M6

That was one cool walker, it makes the AT-AT look like an AT-ST

29 First Order Scout Walkers
30 Made people like the prequels more

A lot of fans really hate this film (I did as well), and it's making people forgive, accept, hell even enjoy the prequels. As a prequels fan, this pleases me. - PlanetDeadwing

31 Emotional Appeal
32 Snoke Snoke

I hope the person who added this wasn't serious, he barely did anything and he doesn't have any character - darthvadern

Very great character.We don't know much about him but he is still cool.
