Even if she hadn't I'm sure they would have figured something out.

RIP to Carrie's mother screen legend Debbie Reynolds star of "Singin in the Rain" and a great many other musicals. Very sad week for that family, they have my deepest condolences.

^^ That happens a lot more than you would think, the grief of losing a loved one is a very powerful emotion, especialy to the elderly. My own grandmother had a heart attack out of nowhere 2 days after my father died. She survived, but I've seen it happen many times in other families over the years.

I share all the sentiments above, but to try to lighten the moment here I did see Rogue One last week.

It was okay. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great. As Evan said, it's a pretty solid movie to add to the Star Wars mythology, without a single moment's thought that it will be it's own momentous thing. That stupid droid was on point though. If there was a moment of levity, he was probably behind it.

I will give the movie a tip of the cap for the following:
Spoiler: show
It never really occurred to me that their mission was going to be a complete suicide mission, until the main girl gave her speech (talking about taking every chance they have, until they either succeed or run out of chances to take) in the shuttle on the way there. It was a really inspiring moment, that really actually signaled exactly what they were walking into. And that last act is one of the most melancholy passages in the entire Star Wars saga. As each member of the team drops, and you realize how hopeless their personal plights are, you're just left hoping that they can somehow pull this off even at the cost of their own lives (though some of that tension is relieved for anyone who has seen Episode IV, of course). And then Vader and the Death Star just come in and fucking wipe out any lingering hope you have. Just fucking soul crushing.
What this movie's ultimate legacy is, is that it adds a new dynamic and urgency to Episode IV. When you think of that movie being called "A New Hope", this film really puts the stakes into that. For that reason alone, this was a worthwhile enterprise, and hopefully they can keep finding ways to add to the Star Wars mythos, outside of the core movies

Barely had any time to myself over the last week, so summarised points. Saw the movie, enjoyed it. Not great, nowhere close to bad. K-2S0 was the star of the show. I loved the monk action scenes. Thought the final assault was very long, but undecided if it's a good thing or a bad thing. I liked the attempt at building suspense despite us already knowing the end result. The little additions to the lore are appreciated.

The Last Jedi, fits perfectly into where Luke comes into the story established by the Force Awakens.

A lot of people commenting on how ominous that red tint looks. Can't wait for the annual Star Wars Celebration in April. A great time to be had by all.

Jedi doesn't necessarily have to be singular, it could fit multiple purposes for the entirety of the movie.

The red text is indeed ominous.

Luke was referred to on at least two occasions in TFA as the last Jedi so it likely only refers to him but you never know.

Well the second episode of a Star Wars trilogy always goes so swimmingly. There's no reason to think anything bad could happen....

I'm sure everything will go swimmingly, just Luke and Rey eating tea and crumpets for two hours.

Classic meanwhile back at the ranch storytelling. Can't fathom any conflict of note arising anywhere in particular, that Ren boy probably gave up and went home.

His daddy never hugged him and his uncle thought he was too dangerous to train as a Jedi. Bloody twerp.

His daddy, who left home just to emotionally manipulate his mom, and uncle, who had to deal with grandpa's going rogue and decimating the Jedi Order in the first place and is totally overcompensating.

Kids just don't understand....
