Trivia

Production designer Rick Heinrichs said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that the original screenplay by writer-director Rian Johnson was so ambitious that it had double the number of sets you might expect on a film like this. "The original script had about 160 sets in it, a ridiculous amount of sets. I didn't say that to Rian, because I figured on something this big he'll find that out on his own. It's a 100-day shooting schedule," says Heinrichs. "So there's more than one set a day you have to prepare for." In the end, the production settled on 125 sets on 14 stages at Pinewood Studios. "The truth is we ended up combining things and trying to be smart about how we're going to do it," says Heinrichs. "He did do some trimming and cutting. It forced him to actually cut the shoe leather, as they say, and combine things in the script as well and reduce a number of things that way." See more »

The Last Jedi tramples all over Star Wars and offers nothing to moviegoers
14 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm genuinely so angry, frustrated, furious, disappointed, upset, confused and gutted.

What the heck just happened to Star Wars?

Today I went to see The Last Jedi not just once but twice. Both in Imax 3D and I went in having not seen any spoilers and avoided any reviews and trailers in order to keep my experience fresh and innocent.

The opening thirty minutes is the most tedious opening to a Star Wars film since the days of the prequels, with absolutely no emotional attachment to the overlong action on screen. Bad start to a very bad movie.

As the film goes on it becomes apparent that the script is not going to be good. Some of the dialogue is the worst in Star Wars history, and there are moments when characters are talking to each other that make you want to throw the person next to you at the screen.

Characters are stuffed into this episode like there's some kind of mad emergency to feature as many as possible for merchandising reasons.

The comedy made me angry too with a couple of lines and a cheeky wink at C3PO making me wince and worry for the future of Star Wars.

Luke Skywalker's character has basically been totally disrespected and ruined in this film too. There's no way he would do what he does and feel how he feels in this film, but the director of this movie has no worries about this or any other part of the Star Wars universe he tramples all over.

There are pointless relationships (Fin in particular gets involved in an unnecessary romance that leaves the viewers cold)

There is one shot where Luke delivers the line about things not turning out the way you think it will that is so badly out of focussed it makes your head hurt.

The musical score is as slow as this overlong movie too adding nothing of value.

I just don't know what else to say other than this is a total absolute mess of a movie that tramples all over Star Wars, makes it worse, disrespects the characters, and offers the worst dialogue not just in Star Wars history but quite possibly the worst script and dialogues of all movies in 2017.

What happens to Leah will have you wanting our money back (if you don't walk out at this point).

It's that bad.

It's so shockingly bad.

The sequence with Leah in space will get you so angry your skin starts to boil.

And even worse the acting is bad. Daisy Ridley delivers some of the dialogue as though she's appearing in The Room with Tommy Wiseau, and Domhall Gleeson giving the worst Star Wars performance since Jar Jar Binks was strutting his stuff.

Imagine Transformers meets Pacific Rim with the acting of The Room and the storyline to beat all mad storylines and you'll have an idea of the vacuous tepid dull overlong tedious steaming pile of odorous cinema you'll see in a long long time.

I went straight back in to watch it again to make sure it wasn't just me missing the whole point of this film. It wasn't. It really is that bad.

Avoid like the plague or go in with the lowest possible expectations
