It is a bit messy, perhaps, but what a glorious mess it is.

I feel like the ven diagram of people who hate The Last Jedi and people begging for the Zack Snyder Director's Cut of Justice League is a perfect circle.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Alternate scenario question:

As I was watching the movie, the first time, when Kylo extended his hand to Rey a is part of me hoped she would take it and he would call of the attack on the Resistance and then things could get really interesting.

I love the movie but part of me still wishes that had happened. Kylo and Rey, representatives of both sides of the force, would have been at the head of the group controlling the entire Galaxy. Peace could have been made with the Resistance and they could have done whatever they wanted. No more Jedis and Sith but something new. Maybe a benevolent Empire. Ambiguity all around and perhaps a new source of conflict could have emerged in the last half hour to be resolved in the third movie.

I wonder if anyone else feels the same.

The latest spoiler-filled Slash Filmcast with Rian Johnson is very illuminating/fun. Check it out.

Rian Johnson better hope episode 9 doesn't have Justice League's trajectory from BvS. He hopefully will do a better job when he has control over the whole trilogy.

Agreed, every time I hear the guy, I like him more. Still not too hot on TLJ but will give it a proper rewatch after it gets released on BD.

If you picked up TLJ on Blu, make sure to check out the feature length documentary “The Director and the Jedi.” It’s a superb look at the filmmaking process/business and a rather intimate look at some actors we’ve held in high regard for a long time. Definitely a must see for any movie fanatic.

It is a neat documentary that almost made me want to see The Last Jedi! I liked the casino scenes very much and the Irish scenery was incredibly beautiful.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

This video makes the best case as to why THE LAST JEDI is not a good movie I have ever seen/read. I would also call it "Why Kylo Ren is the Best Character in All of Star Wars".
