On Star Wars 22 May 2020

I watched The Rise of Skywalker for the second time and decided I liked it way better than I did the first.
I don’t know if they took out a few of the Carrie Fisher scenes, but it seems like they did.  Which were a little jarring.  It seemed as though the surrounding script was written to go along with the footage that they already had instead of moving along with a story.
I think some of the issues I had with the movie would have been eliminated had they foreshadowed in the previous two movies.  Setting up the audience for what was going to happen.  Instead they used ideas that were a part of the old Star Was cannon without explaining.  Banking on the ‘big reveal’ to carry the movie.  Setting the audience up is better than the big reveal any day.  Like a scene in The Force Awakens introducing a character at the very end.  It would have created buzz for that character and promoted a sense of unity through out the series.

I see a lot of trash talk about the new movies on social media.  Some people go as far as saying that prequels were better.  All I can say is that Ben Solo’s ‘good boy sweater’ was better than the prequels.
